  • Disliked: Staff & service

We​ did​ not​ stay​ at​ the​ property.​ We​ were​ refused by​ the​ hotel​ and​ informed that the​ hotel​ association​ of​ Sri​ Lanka​ had a new regulation of not letting tourists from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Thailand stayed at the property. However, they were not able to informed us earlier since Expedia doesn’t show nationality at the booking. We were stopped at the front by the security whom did not even let us stepped into the hotel. After the local driver had a talk with a hotel manager and couldn’t settle. We walked in to have a conversation but the hotel manger treated us as if they were disgusted. We were later informed that this regulation was not an official regulation by the government. It was a hassle to have to find a hotel last minute as then location is full with tourists and a lot of hotels were all booked. Despite the fact that it was already charged our credit card, the hotel refuse to take responsibility and stated that we had to inform Expedia and canceled the booking in order to get the refund.

This hotel feels like it was thriving in the 80s and then just... stagnated. The pool is fine - nice, actually - but only 'opens' at 8am. But that's it. The towel provided was threadbare with a huge hole in - the guy in charge of supplying them was almost flat on his back with his legs spread up against the doorframe - a lovely sight to walk into. The security guard at the gate towards the beach was LOVELY. And then. The room is old, dated, gross - I literally slept and left. The double bed is 2 single beds pushed together but it doesn't... fit together. There was a box of Barbie themed tissues on the dresser - an amenity? Breakfast was bad and the coffee even worse. At check-out we had to hang around for someone to go "check the room". What they think guests might take is beyond me. (The Barbie tissues, perhaps?)
