Location not too spectacular as there is no beach but rocks - the beach is further down the road. It is a basic hotel and could do with a complete renovation. The shower is more like a mini pool as it keeps flooding. Air condition very noisy and general cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired.

TV channels are a little limited but the...

Citrus Waskaduwa helped us to enjoy this holiday season with peace and joy. They really took care of kids with many given options for them to play and explore. Food was excellent with a seasonal touch.

Sadly we felt the room, in most ways, did...
