Well appointed, spacious and meticulously clean cabanas with a mountain view of the Indian ocean. But the unfriendliness of the owner toward the guests and her extreme stinginess in everything were an experience not to be recommended. The owner, an elderly Swiss woman, turns this pleasureable but pricy hotel into a nightmare. Cosmetic items in the cabana are limited to...

I spent 5 nights at Hotel Panorama, and I can recommend it wholeheartedly. The location is perfect. It is not on the beach, but up on the hill overlooking the entire bay. Of course, these views don't come without a cost - there's a very steep walk up from the road. There are around 70 steps, and then probably the...

We booked ahead as we liked the look of the hotel, especially it's proximity to the beach. When we arrived we saw the incredibly steep drive up to the hotel and noticed a bell which said we could call for a tuk tuk to take us up. It's a free service offered by the hotel until 9pm. We got up...

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel. We booked a room with sea view and we were not disappointed to wake up every morning with such a nice view. It has a good location, nearby beach (max 10min by walk) and Galle fort (15 min in tuk tuk). For us, the only bad point was slow wifi, only available at...

We stayed in this lovely hotel for 2 nights; what a shame we hadn't discovered it earlier.. It was the best hotel we stayed at in Sri Lanka. The price was totally fair considering what you get. Everything was so clean (European clean!!!), everything was comfortably and nicely arranged and the hostess Renate and "her boys" were amazingly friendly and...

This hotel was clean, tidy and there wasn't really anything wrong with it. However we didn't really enjoy the ambience here. We didn't feel relaxed and we felt like we were being watched the whole time. It is also at the top of a very steep hill and I don't think the view warranted the walk. I also wouldn't use...

This hotel was the best we stayed in Sri Lanka, ended up staying 6 nights. The manager Prabath is a superb chef and the food was grand. The chalets are large and the bed was so comfy. It has a fridge to keep your drinks cold and the soft drinks are cheaper than buying from outside. It is not licensed...
