“Could not sleep in the rooms due to DJ music in restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

Could not sleep in the room as the DJ music was played in the restaurant. Little ones were also up and this was a stupid idea by the hotel management to entertain a bunch of roudy russians..... Preference was given to that bunch of roudy russians and even the pool chairs were given to them. Food was also not that great, Toilets were not maintained properly.

If you are considering staying here DONT
We are staying here at the end of our tour, and what a huge disappointing way to end an holiday! This place is disgusting...smelly... Mouldy...dirty... Grubby.....toilets that you have to wait 15 minutes between flushes....mould actively growing in the bathroom....we got housekeeping in... Again... They wiped off the mould, but the whole shower remains filthy, with a small trickle of water for a shower.
We took 5 rooms, 4 of them have had to have housekeeping called in to re-clean the rooms, 3 Tvs do not work!

Avoid at all costs!

Room Tip: Is there one???

Stayed here for two nights and wish I had gone elsewhere. Rooms need a big improvement. new tables, paint, cable TV, kettles, etc, etc. Not worth the money.

Hotel has a lot of potential if they redecorated the rooms. Staff are not very friendly and the food is so so. Had to wait 30 mins for cold chips!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

Really cheap laundry, Maby I'll send my clothes from Ukraine to this hotel:)
May I'd not the best time to swim in ocean, I know, so if you like to swim in waves-come on;)
Really nice personal, I think it's local mentality;)
Nisa is the best tour seller, as for me. Today we are going to his house, he proposed dinner to his clients. Really nice!
Territory really green and clean.
Pools really small, didn't try to swim in there.
Rooms look tired, but it's 3*, so I wasn't surprise.
Price to go to kalutara by the tuk-tuk and back equals 300 rupiahs. P

The Hotel Hibiscus Beach is run down. In the deluxe room there was no electric kettle for tea, coffee, had to go to the restaurant if you wanted either no complimentary bottled water . Mold on the bathroom ceiling. Room small. When we asked to see another room, they didn't have any with 2 beds. The only other alternative was to pay the difference for a villa. In the villa, door was difficult to lock, should have been fixed to close properly. TV didn't work,had to be replaced with another. This was booked by Peregrine Tours and was to be the highlight at the end of the a 15 day tour for 2 days of rest. The beach, in my opinion, was not safe for swimming. Food was okay.
In my opinion go 20 Km south to Bentota Beach, beautiful sea and sand.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a good room go to another hotel.

If relaxation is on your mind and you are on a budget, this is the perfect place for you. The hotel is on a stretch of land leading to the beach. A pool built more for sitting and relaxing with a beer than for actual swimming. Lots of cane furniture ideal for reading or lying around with a laptop. Very airy place. Food though limited in range and variety was quite good. The orange souffle and hot ginger pudding was amazing. It helps to call ahead when your on the way, since reception does take a bit of time to sort out a room for you. The staff are friendly enough but one needs to bear with them hovering about while you dine. The place seemed popular with German and Russian tourists. Does not have much for kids and teenagers. It is ideal for those looking for a quiet holiday.

After our long journey the lovely greeting and warm welcome when we arrived,a cool drink in our hands and a warm towel to refresher us.Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff.Plenty of choice of food which was always hot and delicious puddings always presented well.Our room was lovely though the bathroom could have been updated a bit but it was nothing to complain about.Clean towels and sheets everyday and on our last day our room boy had written goodbye in petals on our bed which was a lovely personal touch and very considerate in the time it must have taken him to do .We would personally recommend this hotel to anyone and go back there again in the future, Thanks For Kamal Who are doing tour for Us, if anyone one wants to contact him for excursion Please ask in Reception Desk about Kamal ,thank you
