We went here because it's cheap in low season, and we were so happy with this place that we stayed 2 more days, great service, very comfortable bed, lots of space and really good food. I wanted to stay longer, really liked it here.

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.
