We booked Eva Lanka over the Christmas period as a 'treat' on our tour of Sri Lanka, costing nearly £200 per night...it was by far the worst of the six places we stayed over our three week trip.
The manager was grumpy and rude, no warm Sri Lankan welcome here. He even refused to let our driver through the hotel gates meaning we had to carry our luggage to the road leading to the hotel.
Our room was spacious with a fantastic view from the terrace, however sitting out on the first evening a rat ran across in front of us, rather putting us off sitting there again!
Whilst clean on the surface the room didn't have new soap in the bathroom & the sheets had a rather stale smell.
Then there was the food...the Christmas Eve 'Gala Buffet' that we were forced to buy into as we were staying that night was by far & away the worst meal we've had.
Redeeming features were the staff aside from the manager who were friendly, especially the chefs.
Whilst the beach in front of the hotel was lovely it was deserted so no atmosphere.
There are so many guest houses & hotels in the area, our tip would be avoid this place!More
