The road to the hotel is under construction and its 16km away from Tangalle town. The management should address the issue immediately. Even the food spred was not attractive. Costomer care has to improve.

We stayed here one night to relax after a long journey. Rooms were nice but not all that clean. Restaurant prices way to expensive. We had a mouse in our room. Pool was nice and spa was amazing! A bit far from anything else so you're kinda stuck here. Fine if you are into resorts.

Very good service. Room was large, comfortable bed, good furniture, clean bathroom. Food was great. Not the largest spread of food but what they offered was tasty. Room service portions were huge and the burger and the vegetable wrap was superb. Pool was well maintained with active pool attendant. Beach was lovely. Staff was very attentive.
