Where do i start, me and my wife spent a week at the Club Hotel Dolphin in mid december (2012). There was a group of 12 family and friends who joined us for our wedding at the hotel.
We really can't fault the hotel or its positioning one bit, from the beach location, the great spacious clean rooms, pools and outside bar area and the fantastic choice on offer in the all inclusive buffet morning, noon and night. And if the buffet isn't to your liking you won't be disappointed with the food in The Waves Resturant which is well worth a visit.
Both the hotel staff and barman were all so friendly and helpful. A special thank you must be said to Miss Maureen and the other wedding co-ordinator for organsising our special day and their attention to detail that has left us which such fanatastic memories of the day.
We went with Virgin Holidays and found our rep Shirley very helpful. He also organised a trip for 9 of us with Walker Tours to the Elephant Sanctuary which was very enjoyable and well worth a visit.
As for the wedding we really couldn't have asked for a better day!! So well organised from start to finish, everything we hoped for and more. The beach location for the ceremony, photographs in the garden and the Beach bbq in the evening by camp fire with calypso band playing in the background. The photographs were amazing so much better than we had hoped and the beach bbq served up such fantastic food, some of the best I have ever eaten!
A massive thanks to all the staff at the hotel.
I would recommend not just the hotel for a fanatastic time but Sri Lanka as a whole.
We will certainly be back!!
Hope this is helpful.
