“Best spot on the beach and very friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

We enjoyed a great 4 day stay at the Full Moon Resort in early june and often chose to eat here in the evenings due to the very friendly staff and good food. There is a great bar attached run by Raj, who was extremely kind, making special cocktails for me on my birthday and giving us great service. A great beach resort to relax in.

Pleasant stay in Full Moon, good quality restaurant and nice sea food.
Only cons are the rooms, a little bit small and there is not so much windows.
Sometimes it is noisy because of Happy Banana on Fridays.
But in general staff is very polite and friendly, manager Rupassena is a wise guy

It's not really a hotel, it's more of a cozy guest house. Everything was cool in there, charming people welcoming you. You can walk on the beach and have lunch or dinner either in the guest house or on the many little restaurants on the beach.The owners are Italian and super friendly. The food is not bad, the rooms have a very strict minimum (which the price justifies) but if I have one little comment, it needs a little renovation. Fresh paint, little plumbery and brand new sheets and towels. Then it would be really perfect.

Best spot on the beach, other hotels don't have any sand left. Very chilled out and relaxing sun beds with a great big tree to provide shade and atmosphere. Rooms were like most rooms in Sri Lanka, not great value for money. Service was slow to non existent. Would stay again if the price was lower.

Pleasant setting overlooking beach. Ordered one breakfast, termed european breakfast at a cost of rupees 550,very nice. Second order was for one glass of fruit juice, it arrived in a very small wine glass but the charge for this small glass was rupees 400, an extremely high charge for such a small drink

I stayed here a few months ago and it was pleasant, considering the fact that it was Christmas holidays and the entire beach was full of tourists. However, last night was a different story altogether. First of all, we were given the worst room in the entire place, Room 10 or Modena as it is called, which is right next to the restaurant. Secondly, there was some kind of karaoke party going on next door and people just kept on belting out cheesy 80s music till the wee hours of the morning. Thirdly, at about 7 am, a child could be heard speaking on top of her lungs right outside the room and no one did anything about it. I'm sad to say that this'll be the last time I'll be staying here. I feel quite embarrassed as I actually brought a friend with me this time and had told her that the location of it more than outweighed the state of the rooms but on the end, the location meant nothing after having a sleepless night. Never again.

Ate here a couple of times. My friends the fish, which I gathered was ok. I chose the vegetarian options. First veg noodles, nothing to write home about, next time penne arrabiata, which I must say was one of the best I've ever had! Maybe it's because I asked for it Sri Lankan spicy rather the the tourist level of spice, which may as well be as spicy as a bowl of cornflakes! ;)

The one thing that lets it down is the very poor table service. Once ordered the food is made pretty quickly but getting the order taken, bill ordered and paid, then waiting for change is a real bore! Ordering drinks is as bad. I ordered the same beer three times over a 15min period and there was more staff than customers. If they were busy I'd understand as I'm realistic about these things.

I've only eaten at a couple of beach side bars while staying and the service level has been poor at both.
