Tis hotel was fantastic. There were a few little issues with costs, but nothi to reduce the overall rating of e hotel.
We had an upper room, which had an excellent view over the beach and pool. The room and bathroom were both huge, and clean. There is some rust in places, which is to be expected in the tropics by the beach in rooms that open to the air.
The food was all excellent, thou those who are not seafood fans will find their selection a little limited.
The only issues I have with is hotel are that the wine was over priced for the quality, and the cost of the car or van from the hotel to Negombo on checkout was more than initially quoted (11500 rupees instead of 10000).
The staff were very friendly, and I loved the fact that you didn't need to sign or give your room number for things,as it is such a small place, with only 9 suites, the staff always remember your room!
Service could be a little slow, but that seemed to be standard in Sri Lanka.
We usually spend a week or so each year at a beach resort in Thailand, but this hotel has led us to reconsider. Too bad a $50 visa fee is coming in for Sri Lanka from Jan 1
