Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

A satisfactory hotel - clean and located on the water edge, so waves crashing onto rocks and beach was great to watch. Beds and pillows comfy, housekeeping good. So many other aspects were just a bit odd - the hotel entry has unusual sculptures and the bathroom layout is 'different', more than 70% of the main pool is too deep...

We stayed at Jetwing with my two kids and my parents. We loved it. The staff were great, helpful and very friendly. Grounds were beautiful, big pools and views of the ocean. The rooms were very spacious, clean and had the most lovely, soft bed linen! The windows also had wooden shutters so the rooms are nice and dark in...

The hotel has a beautiful design and rooms overlooking the Ocean are beautiful. The whole setting is incredibly well chosen. The restaurant setting is also very well thought through. The room was very comfortable with beautiful furniture and a walking wardrobe. The bathtub was very small and therefore not very comfortable but the shower room was great. The hotel is...

The Jetwings Lighthouse is situated overlooking the sea, with fabulous views of waves crashing on rocks and a sweeping white sand beach. All the facilities are tasteful and functional. Staff are very professional, friendly and accommodating. The lunch buffet was probably the best meal I had in my 2 weeks in Sri Lanka!

There is a huge selection of really well made western and eastern food at the breakfast buffet-the best of all the hotels we stayed at down south during our trip.

My wife and I were there recently along with a group of 19 other friends traveling in Sri Lanka. The architecture IS impressive but what was this famous architect thinking when he did not include an elevator -- for anyone worried about multiple flights of stairs, this place is NOT where one should stay while in Galle. Several in our...

This was my second trip to Jetwing Lighthouse, and I loved it even more than the first. Food was great, the property is stunning, and the service personalized. Rooms are incredibly spacious, with a gigantic bathroom/closet area. Will definitely visit this hotel again.
