From arrival to departure the staff were nothing but friendly and engaging. I was greeted, shown around the property and introduced to staff. My stay here while only short was one of the most pleasant places I visited during my time in Sri Lanka and was certainly the best place to conclude my holiday. The room was spacious and as...

This was the first stop of our Sri Lanka trip and we had just awesome time! We loved the set up of the pool bar and jacuzzi. All area is surrounded with tress so the garden is very green. Hotel is just next door to golden temple which is really convenient as well as good location to other places such...

We went to this hotel for our first stay. The hotel and members are great. The pool is nice. The room have the perfect size. One problem is the noise. If you have a room close to the pool it could be really noisy (people until 2 am at the bar with music... not really relaxing for our first day)....

Not worth its current price. Sundaras is very poorly managed. My husband and I fortunately stayed only one night, and we can say confidently that this 'resort' is not worth the current price. You'd be better off searching for a lower priced place and getting what you pay for as you don't get what you pay for here. We slept...

This is more of a hostel than a hotel . Staff get a 5 for effort but overall condition of the facility is poor particularly the washroom. Garden is overgrown and lacked maintenance . Food was ok . I am surprised at the high ratings given by others .. the 3 rating is a stretch . I would not recomend...

We had a lovely stay at Sundaras resort - we stayed for three nights and found the staff to be very helpful and attentive. Special mention to Paul the bar tender at the pool! The buffet at breakfast and dinner were decent and the hotel is in a good location to major sights such as the golden cave temple and...

We stayed here one night. Some confusion about billing was later corrected. Partly it was because we were confused. But, they dropped a partial refund to us in Kandy! Always get numbers on paper. The room was ok. No hot water and the wifi is weak - but that can happen at an expensive place, too. The pool and food...

We were here for 3 nights and had a great time. It was a fantastic spot to come "home" to after a long day of sightseeing. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed talking with them. Just read one of the bad reviews recently written, and feel like those issues/complaints were greatly exaggerated. (reminds me that...

This place is both surprisingly good and surprisingly bad. In fact, it is full of surprises, full-stop. Firstly, we were tipped off to book a stay here via a booking site as we were planning just to pop in. Thank god we did, as we ended up with a discount of 55%. Secondly, the pool looked particularly alluring in such...
