The hotel is located north of town just south of a fishing village.
The is kept extreamly clean. The staff are always sweeping or cleaning. Even though the lobby lounge opens right on to the beach you never saw sand in it because the staff would sweep it up before you saw it.
The restaurant was good. I was on the half board plan. Breafast was bufffet and dinner a set menu. Except on night when they set up a buffet on the beach which was really nice.
I was told that when the hotel is full they serve dinner as a buffet other wise it is served as a set menu. There were usually four choices on the set menu three "western" meals one Sri Lankan. The only thing I found negative about dinning at the hotel was that lunch which was not included, seemed more expevise by Sri Lankan standards.But there are plenty of placed near by.
The rooms are basic but clean PLEASE NOTE: THE ROOMS DO NOT HAVE TV.
The only TV is in the bar.
This made for rather quiet evenings. I would eat late then have a few beers in the bar then call it an evening.
The staff are wonderful. They were all very freindly and will to help you.
If the rooms had TV this would be by hotel of choice in Negombo
