This resort is located on a beautiful part of Sri Lanka's East Coast. At the time of year when we visited, it was quiet but that meant we had the pool to ourselves. We visited with our one year child. Our room was very clean and the bathroom was AMAZING!! Unfortunately, there were gaps in the room which meant mosquitoes...

The food was OK but primarily buffet, whereas I much prefer a restaurant with full service (this was available but at substantial extra cost although we were on an all-inclusive basis). The staff could...

We stayed for 2 nights at Maalu Maalu from 28th to 30th March. Chalet was clean and nice but quite small. Bathroom was amazingly huge and lovely though. Our 1st night was a disaster with food. Even though they had a mini buffet due to less packs, quality of the food was poor and chef in dishes were empty as...
