“Good restaurant and very nice bungalows too”
Reviewed 21 December 2012

JC's was an excellent base to see the cultural sites in Dambulla, Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa (about 2 hours away). Ended up staying 3 nights because the bungalows and setting were so nice, and a good value too. Bungalows large, new and peaceful and quiet. One day just relaxed by the pool and was nice to take break from touring for an afternoon. Hotel takes pride in details like room decor, aquariums, garden, and even a pet porcupine. Service is excellent - in the restaurant or they'll bring anything to your room too (it was nice to have coffee delivered in the morning). Food is good, with large portions. Management very responsive and professional.

On the downside, water pressure was weak and beers are expensive so I'd buy your own outside and put in mini-fridge.

Overall, really enjoyed my stay and felt warmly welcomed.

“Nice place and good service”
Reviewed 6 October 2012

Feels like a mini resort with tree lined bugalows, swimming pool and open plan restaurant. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food good and overall a relaxing place to stay. Recommended.

“Good food”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

Our guide booked and took us for a meal at JC's Village.
We enjoyed our visit although it was during monsoon rain and we were therefore not able to take a look around.
The food was good. The fish curry was amazing - nine dishes in total - all tasty and interesting. probably one of the best dishes we experienced in our trip to Sri Lanka
