Pro's. A special ambiente with wonderful garden, nice but tired décor. WiFi and pool boy good. Have to cross train tracks to reach the beach. No beach amenities provided by hotel and currents are quite strong with turbid surf. Con's. Horrid restaurant. Dreadful breakfast. Wildly overpriced and mediocre evening meals. (Eat anywhere else). Simply too pricey -- bad value for...

Enjoyed a very relaxing 3 night stay here last week. Fabulous ambience - absolutely gorgeous decor everywhere. Room 5 is light, bright and private and I'd choose it again. The pools and gardens are beautiful and the beach is really wonderful. The standards are high - really appreciated good service from the helpful staff (especially evening turndown and room re-fresh)....

I would recommend this as a place to stay if you want to experience a very Sri Lankan style of hotel. The villa is very beautiful and you can very much see the Bawa architectural style. The service also is really good and prompt. Also the food is great as with all paradise road enterprises. Some drawbacks are related to...

Stayed for 4 nights and loved the hotel. Very small and personal. Service was excellent - all the staff were welcoming, efficient and friendly - and I do mean all, at reception, waiters, at the pool, etc. Quite quirky with the train going by every so often, but this added to the charm. Loved it. Not set up for kids,...

Simply the best place I have ever stayed. Awesome accommodation, location, service and attention to detail. Take me back! The restaurant was good - but not stunning. A very good breakfast and home made bakery. The massages were amazing. The pool and the gardens magnificent.

My husband and I and our 2yr old son had had a wonderful 2wk holiday in January touring Sri Lanka ending our stay at Paradise Road Villa. We were in Suite One with its own plunge pool - the room is quite dark with no view and also the bathroom lighting isn't very good. We didn't go in the plunge...
