The location of this property is excellent. We had booked 4 rooms at the property through expedia for 1 night. I had emailed them multiple times asking for driver accommodation but got no response. Finally i called and asked and they said they will provide driver accomodation if it is not full but when I reached there they said they dont provide driver accomodation for bookings made through third party website like expedita. That was a big let down. Other than that the stay was good. Rooms are neat and clean and very close to the beach. Breakfast buffet was really good.

    The location was great all be it a little too quiet at times. The hotel was well maintained and had a wonderful breakfast ...although found the other food (lunch and dinner) to not be as good so we spent our evenings dining across the road at Mallis , Trax and happy garden . Seafood great in Mallis and the authentic Sri lankan curry was great at happy garden also a third of the price than the hotel! Nirodha the sous chef was amazing , so friendly and helpful in explaining the dishes...we looked forward to our chats with him at breakfast. Another tip, dont exchange money at the hotel. The rate is poor in comparison and they were overly fussy about the condition of the notes. I went down the road and exchanged at a much better rate and all notes were accepted regardless of pen marks!???! We were lucky enough to be there over the Sri Lankan new year and the hotel put on various games and treats which we loved. The staff also got involved and was great to interact with everyone. Pin the eye on the elephant was a particular favourite although i wasnt close!! I did notice there were some vip guests that were being fawned over during this time which to us was a bit ridiculous as if you had faith in your hotel then you wouldnt feel the need to do this and offer extra things that the other guests didnt have...provided us a chuckle and entertainment to the happenings though. Overall it was a good experience ,the reception lady was always smiling and chatty and Chadia in des cafe to.
