I had first visited this property in 2010, when making a day trip from Colombo. At that time, I remember finding the resort to be absolutely lovely, but was immensely disappointed by the buffet lunch.
I finally had the chance to stay here for a night in the beginning of June 2014, and while the resort is a brilliant property, unfortunately the food doesn't quite live up to the rest of the place. In particular, I found most of the meat dishes to be quite tough. While I would otherwise welcome a long stay at this hotel for the lovely sea-facing balconies in the rooms, massive lawns, the swimming pool and the incessant sounds of the waves, I'm afraid that I probably wouldn't be able to sustain it simply because of the disappointing food, which in my limited experience does not seem to have improved between 2010 and 2014.
For travellers for whom food is less of a concern, I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at this hotel. For those who like to try the local alcohol, I was very pleased to find the stout variant of the local Lion beer, which I had not come across in other Sri Lankan hotels before. The staff is unfailingly helpful and attentive.
