The check in was an odd experience. The hotel insisted (which I refused) to make us wear wrist bands like in amusement parks for the duration of the stay so that the restaurant staff are able to identify who is on what meal plan! Finally we arrived at a compromise of attaching the bands to the room key. the food...

We were back again for another great visit in December 2016. The staff are lovely and we are getting to know them now. There is always a smile and hello from everyone. The Margosa Spa is as good as ever. Such luxury for me. It is my favourite place to be. It is what I look forward to most of...

Rooms were very basic (for the price) but clean. Food is below average. Front Reception staff are not trained well and aren't very courteous. Room service was ok not the best though. Way too expensive for the service that you get. The surrounding areas are well kept and the Beach area is kept clean too.

Amazing beach and setting unfortunately the overall standard of the hotel was very poor for several reasons. Firstly accommodation: clean but very basic, in need of modernising. It looks tired. The service overall was variable, some workers were very friendly and polite others were dismissive and on one occasion when I asked for cutlery in the dinning room it felt...

We visited long beach during new year time ( badly filled, but staff did attend us and rooms and washroom were clean), initially we felt strange with the band and strict pool and spa timings. But as we stayed we saw how warm and caring the staff was, location no doubt was truly beautiful with clear blue sea and white...

Overpriced hotel: poor quality, room falling apart, poorly constructed bathroom, not nice design of hotel in general (photos make it seem much nicer) and mediocre staff - all this still in comparison to two+ weeks of other mediocre hotels in Sri Lanka. I paid 300 USD a night, but it should be maximum 150 USD. I'm very unhappy with this...

Except for the beach which is the key asset of this hotel, price is absolutely NOT JUSTIFIED. The hotel is really 80s looking and of cheap making.. service is fine though, but overall not worth the price asked.

Reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor, we thought that we will request the second floor rooms- the staff did not change to the 2nd floor and we were stuck on the first floor rooms. Bathroom- take a torch. It's barely lit. If you are a plumber it's better- the shower fittings are bad, rusted. You cant even dream of washing...

When you arrive you get tagged with a plastic arm band like you were cattle. Not for your convenience, but so that the personel can recognice you. Reception people are quite arrogant and not very helpful. Very slow to wash laundry and deliver missing towls at the room. While the room and view is nice the beach is a bit...
