We went over the tamil new year holiday hoping to enjoy the pool, beach and food.

The hotel itself is superb. Excellent rooms and garden for the kids to run about in.
Sadly, the service was awful. I could list things all day, but here are some examples: the shuttle service to the beach is twice a day, we weren't told this until we were ready to go. Then when we got there, the beach was a complete mess, with oil, rubbish and dead fish everywhere. Maybe the 'beach cleaners' were on holiday, but we should have been warned about this.

The buffet was rarely on time, often 15-20 minutes late, which isn't good when you need to feed kids, and when it did appear, it was fairly mediocre to poor compared with hotels in the same price range.

They offered us an upgrade, but we then had to waste the whole afternoon waiting for them to change our rooms and then chase the manager to sort out another problem - they tried to put another family (friends who had also been having problems with their room) in the same suite - 4 adults, 3 kids, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom? However, when it was sorted, the villa was excellent. Oh, despite the wi-Fi not working (as it didn't seem to do in any villa, or many of the rooms).

If you are thinking of staying here, go for B&B, take lunch in bentota (club villa is great) and go to the beach elsewhere. The location is great, but our stay should have been much more enjoyable.

We were there with another 2 families. One night stay on FB basis.
Nice boutique hotel with big rooms. Jacuzzis available even in silk category. Full length swimming pool, fantastic gardening. Kids were loved the pool and play area. They have some shuttle service to beach. Friendly staff.

Food: yummy... Chef is doing a really great job. Not a big buffet. But it was superb combination of mouthwatering cuisines

Finally it was a perfect relaxing stay at Cocoon. I would love to go back again

What a beautiful place, everything from our arrival to our departure was exceptional. We stayed in a grand villa with a private pool and our only neighbours were monkeys, iguanas, chipmunks, an assortment of birds, and the occasional mongoose. Food and service was exceptional. Our day tours to Kandy ( elephant orphanage) and turtle hatchery were beyond our wildest expectations. Our drivers on both tours were very friendly and informative and they showed us some places we would never have found ourselves. From the moment we arrived our manager Rohan greeted us and walked us to our room, he went above and beyond to ensure our every need was met. The rest of the Cocoon team were wonderful and one of the main reasons we will be returning to this amazing Resort.

Room Tip: Loved our room, we enjoyed the privacy and seclusion.
