Reviewed 19 October 2017

I was in this hotel just some week ago due to a business trip and I found it very good.
There are more types of rooms: the first time I was in a big room with a big bathroom (and a wardrobe that was between bathroom and main room, accessible from both sides! very nice!) at the second floor, while the last time I was in a smaller room with some problems for the wardrobe but directly connected to the swimming pool through a second door.

The hotel spaces are very nice and they serve very good local cocktails at the bar; in
addition there is a swimming pool and a gym.

Breakfast was the best that I ever had in sri lanka, full of choices, like cereals, yogurt, pastries, eggs&bacons, pancakes and waffles and other food... Dinner usually consists in a menu composed by appetizer, soup, main course and desserts (with not so many choices), and 2 days per week there is a good buffet.

If I have to rate this hotel, I will give 3*
My girlfriend says 3-3,5*, because she really liked the breakfast buffet, the view from the restaurant and the friendly staff.

Location is perfect on the beach. And also good opportunity to walk out the hotel at night for other restaurants and supermarket. (We took our diner at King Coconut restaurant, this was not a good choice that night, see my review about that)

The hotel restaurant to take the breakfast and more was really nice with the sea view.

Really friendly staff, that also means it from the heart to be friendly.

Room was clean, ok, but a little bit old. Bathroom was small and looking old.

Swimmingpool was ok.
On the beach nice possibility to lay under the palm trees.

We have no idea about price/quality level, because we booked a round trip through a organization.

I am a teacher at a school in Colombo and I booked to bring my class of twenty-two 15-year old students to the Jetwing Sea for a class trip during the low season. The students had a wonderful time. The water was rough and the students did not swim in the sea as a result, but the beach is wide and flat, perfect for volleyball and making sand castles. They enjoyed the pool and relaxing in the many deck chairs under the palm trees. We ate lunch at the buffet, and there was an excellent variety of dishes, mostly Sri Lankan, very tasty. We had a wonderful day out, thanks to the helpful and accommodating staff.
