We stayed in the luxury room which was nice as my partner was sick so the air con and big bathroom was nice. However, it was definitely over priced for what it was, I would go and find somewhere cheaper to stay down the road. The restaurant was ok, again we ate around the corner a lot as there were...

This place has a stunning beach and a lovely tree house vibe - standard rooms are ok with fans - but not great. Loud music a few nights per week at disco can get grating if you want some early nights (trips to snorkel and whale watching early in morning)and whilst staff generally nice, service can be slow. Overall would...

You don't want to go there. Everything in the rooms is in bad condition, bathrooms, airco, doors, etc. even if you opt for the luxury rooms! In one of the rooms, the door would not open from inside. They promised it will be fixed, never was.This was also the most expensive hotel we had in Sri Lanka. Very noisy too...
