Very comfortable beds, clean rooms with sea view balcony, extensive breakfast spread with both international and Sri Lankan options. From the Sous Chef down to the clean-up staff, everyone was very helpful, attentive and took personal responsibility for their guests. Free wi-fi at their business centre is convenient.

Not surprising that our registration which we had made from overseas, could not be found on multiple visits to the front desk, nor could our credit card number be found which we had given to secure that booking.
Mt Livinia Hotel could also be a better corporate citizen by cleaning up the garbage-strewn rocks flanking either side of the hotel leading down to the beach.
