The villa itself looks really nice but ocean view rooms are really uncomfortable to stay .Humidity and ocean noise are just killing the place .The rain didn't help either ... the room was so wet after it .

Stayed: June 2016

The bed and accomadation is fine but,the room has to be cleaned properly and the pool doesnt seem to be very clean but its "CLEAN".THE property really needs a alot bigger parking lot and the breakfast served is good and the property needs to have a lot of renovation

This hotel is very good value for money, we stayed for two nights. It leads straight onto the beach and is clean and adequate - we need to remember this is a very cheap little hotel.

If you are looking for luxury this isn't your hotel!!! as it is very very basic and old fashioned, but clean and good value for money - the views, pool, being directly on the beach and breakfast made our stay [we only showered and slept in the room]

The breakfast was VERY good with an Indian flair, we had fruit - omlets and dhal, rice, roti, coconut spicy pancakes etc

I would definitely go back here!

Room Tip: ask for a room with sea view

You get what you pay for. This hotel is right on the beach with a lovely pool and very convenient for restaurants and bars. We stayed in one of the balcony rooms which has a stunning view of the beach, pool and sunset in the evenings. The staff are very friendly and there is a great buffet breakfast included in the price. The room and communal areas were cleaned every day however the whole place needs updating and re-decorating. The bed was extremely comfortable however the 4 poster frame was held together by string. Although the bathroom was cleaned there was ground in dirt that just wouldn't come off and the grouting was black with old dirt. The main issue however was the electrics. There was no earth and many wires were exposed. Part way through our stay the switches and sockets in our bathroom stopped working, as well as the switch for the fridge (which we only realised was on the same circuit when we found a huge puddle on the floor). After re-setting the fuse box several times (and getting a couple of electric shocks in the process) we complained that this was dangerous and an electrician came out within 30 minutes to fix the problem. However if the place was upgraded I'm sure it would no longer be a budget hotel.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms at the front give views over the ocean and pool.

The hotel in situated on the main road but the rooms are well away from the traffic. I stayed there for 2 weeks and enjoyed the experience. The room was cleaned every day with plenty of towels. I styed in a first floor room with a balcony 210 and the view was stunning but sea noisy a night but worth the ear plugs. Rooms are basic but comfortable, clean and comparable with others in Sri Lanka. The inside rooms are a bit dark but if you want to stay inside all day why go on holiday? The pool is clean and safe contrary to another review. Breakfast has enough choice and plenty of it for anyone. The staff were friendly and always willing to help. People react to the way you treat them. I think some people are only happy when they are moaning. 25 metres to the left is The Den and 30 metres to the right is the Blue Note hotel and both have good food and drink. If you want loud music, cheap drink and also food try Chill Space about 25 metres further on from the Blue Note. The ear plugs come in handy if you want to sleep they have a party on Saturday night that lasts till dawn - great fun. I will try and go back 2018. PS the dog is Duke and is adorable, if he barks just give him a fuss.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor I was in room 210 at the front but surf is noisy take ear plus
