It is a bit too late to be writing a review, as I stayed with my wife and 02 other couples during November, 2012 but i thought that I should rate this property.
We stayed during a long weekend and 01 couple and myself took the apartments outside, while my other friends took the main apartment. The main apartment was a joke!!! The toilets were leaking and it was not properly maintained. When we mentioned this to the staff they did their best and contacted the Manager (who is in Colombo) and arranged a room inside the bungalow. There are 04 rooms inside the bungalow. When this was given to my friend, I asked if we both can also move into the bungalow so that we can enjoy the same roof but this was a problem. I really didn't understand what the issue was, as we were the only people occupying the full property and we had paid extra for the apartment. I didn't bother to take this further.
The staff were great!!! They organised a BBQ for us and we had a great time. Being a Hotelier myself, I know what standards are and this place should be maintained better. The rate is good but they should also be flexible, as I really didn't see the reason to why we couldn't be accommodated inside the bungalow. The water flow is not good and it does take a while to have a bath.
These are little issues that shouldn't be looked at negatively, as we had a great time and we hope to return. The hot tub was working fine and the beach was great!!!
