To start off, my driver could not see the name of this hotel when we arrived in the night. It's as if the hotel is ashamed to announce its name. It did look promising on the outside though, so i was not expecting the many problems ahead. My wife and i were given a room where the hot water taps...

Do not stay here. This hotel is terrible. I had a filthy room with windows looking right out onto the main pathway so I could never have the blinds open. It gets worse. Firstly, the power would not work in my room as the main switch gadget was broken. Reception promised to fix it as I met the group for...

I stayed at this hotel prior to joining a tour group. Air conditioning did not work. Very noisy. Pool area not good. Just kind of a junky feeling all around. I stayed at the Camelot Beach Hotel for 3 nights prior to coming here and it was head and shoulders above this place. Gold Star price should have been half...

I got this Hotel for a night from Sri Lankan Airlines while I was in Transit. The hotel staff were really sweet though, the linen and room in general could have been cleaner. For the price it is listed, you might want to pass, unless you can get some deal ;)

Stayed here the first night of a tour and was glad it was only one night. Very tired hotel in need of an upgrade, saving point was the friendly helpful staff who go out of their way to be of assistance, checking a few rooms until one could be found with all essentials (air con, toilet) working as needed. Breakfast...

Do NOT book this hotel unless you are desperate, and have a masochistic desire to endure: filthy rooms; air conditioning that does not work in heat of 35degrees plus; no water from the taps or cold water only; and sheets, pillowcases and towels that are stained, and worn thin and grey. Complaints may get you moved to another room that...

Staff were mostly friendly but room was dated and hot water was just warm. Poor television reception, poor wireless internet and phone didn't work. "Clean" sheet was dirty - room attendant reported things are always like this - phones not work, television didn't work, dirty sheets, no phone etc

Stayed here for 2 nights, in different rooms, before i started a tour. The first room i was in was extremely noisy. The airconditioner didn't work and the bathroom door didnt open properly. The second room was much better. The pool was nice and having direct beach access was wonderful.

This hotel is great for a traveller on a tight budget. The hotel rooms are very simple. Rooms includes air conditioning and fans, small TV and hot running water. The rooms are perfectly located as they look out onto the pool and bar area where you will be able enjoy amazing sunsets on the balcony. The buffet for breakfast has...
