We were reluctant to book Tamarind Tree but were pleasantly surprised by the bungalow room, sitting/dining room with separated bed- and bathrooms. The suite was large and clean and while the furniture perhaps not trendy it was quite sufficient and the bed very comfortable.
The porch seats allowed us to sit outside when it started to rain.
Based on the reviews we had booked BB and when not eager to find an outside place to eat we ordered (reasonably priced and tasty) room service which was for once delivered promptly and we ate at our own dining table!
Only bug was the further lack of service, totally atypical for Sri lanka, which made us suspect that for 1 night "stands" they feel not to bother.. It cost 1.5 hrs and 3 requests to get a fitting plugin for the water kettle.The breakfast package that was offered and ordered for 5.30 appeared at 5.45 to have been forgotten and -worse- the already paid for taxi not arranged.
We had planned some extra time so all ended well and the breakfast package was actually quite nice.
If ever returning to Sri Lanka Tamarind Tree is, due to the location, nice lay-out, room size, pool, very much an option for our first or last night.
