Yes, the hotel is direct at a beach - but boring long without any shade.
Yes, the rooms are nicely designed - but balconies do need a touch up
Yes, the service is ok - but we had a big hiccup at check in. Took 2 hours to rectify.
Yes, some staff members are extremely nice - some are a bit too much
Yes, they have restaurants - but in comparison to other similar places in SriLanka the prices are a rip off.: at the GalleFace hotel (5*) the buffet dinner is 1800Rps and excellent. At this one its 2500 Rps and mediocre. A small glass of simple wine is 600Rps.. at the Galle its 300Rps. The hotel car to the airport is 30.-$ but any normal cab charges you 1500Rps only.
And then - 30% of guests from Arab countries in their black burkas watching you at the pool -- frightening.
Room rates at the GalleFace - a true 5-star hotel - and here are the same. But this one I would rate it as good 3-star hotel catering for business travellers and as an option for an overnight stop close to the airport before flying off. But not pleasant for a long holiday stay.
