We stayed for 5 nights in 2 interconnecting suites (family of 5). Rooms were simple, but very clean and relaxing. We had rooms overlooking the ocean. Pool was lovely and the beach was just amazing - watch the littles ones though. The waves can be really strong - but hotel lifeguard goes out to the beach as guests leave the hotel grounds toward the beach.
Food was lovely - although would be good to have a few simple dishes for the children.
Across the road is a tour guide named Ruchi - he is AMAZING!!! Arranged great tours for a group of 9 of us (2 families traveling together). He got us into feed the elephants, watching the elephants bath in the river, elephant ride, personal washing of one elephant in a secluded river. Herb and spice garden tour, tea plantation - all without queuing, or paying enormous entry fees and we had the best vantage point every time!! You'll find him on the beach outside the hotel if he's not on a tour for the day. His English is amazing and he has loads of knowledge on the history of Sri Lanka.
We will return here again and stay a lot longer.
