My wife,my mother and i arrived early at 6-30 am our room wasnt ready untill 2pm.The hotel was full and had one roome available which wasnt suitable to let out,they kindly allowed us to use this room to shower and freshen up while we were waiting for our room to be ready.The hotel was clean as usual,happy smiling staff and lovely gardens and grounds.
The food was excellent as usual,with a huge variety of sri lankan food and the run of the mill chicken nuggets and chips for the less enthusiastic palates.Not once did we have any stomach upsets and havnt ever (this is our 4th visit)You had a few moaners saying they had bad stomachs and were off to the chemist.(Nothing to do with stood at the bar most of the time drinking beer and spirits in 32 degrees 95% humidity and standing in the sun untill bright red to catch up on your suntan)
I went fishing on a number of occasions catching barracuda,sear fish,snapper etc.I took them to the chef and he cooked them for us for lunch or dinner,it tasted amazing.Nothing was too much trouble for their staff.Their helpfullness and proffessionalism it to be commended and for a 3* hotel,the service far surpasses any 5* i have stayed in.We will be visiting the hotel again in the nxt 18months without hesitation.Well done mermaid keep up the great work.
