Reviewed 21 April 2017

I found the staff and manager here very friendly and accommodating. The room was nice and large with a lovely balcony but the décor was a little tired. There is a really great rooftop bar but it is not well advertised or used. The location was a little out of the way, and the place was quite quiet and seemed...

Nice and pleasant small hotel, located not far(around 15 minutes walking) from local market and shopping area. Sand beach with not many people and moderate waves. Small (around 15m long) pool, about 2 m deep from one side and 1m on the other, with warm and clear water. Sunbeds located all over the place with few umbrellas and suspended beds....

From what I've seen, it's the best hotel in Ambalangoda. The beach is right in the front of it. The only problem is that the ocean is quite rough in this very place, hard to swim. Still, if you don't mind walking, there are more quiet beaches to the left (facing the ocean). They only 5-10 minutes away depending on...

Dear Vladimir, Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. Generally the Ocean in-front of the hotel is quite calm by around this time of the year but there can be a few odd days. And yes, as you have suggested there are some nice places to sea bath all...

Beautiful little boutique hotel off the beaten track in Ambalangoda. Modern updated facilities including roof top bar and beach side swimming pool. Ask for the Sri Lankan Menu. The Chef Saman can make a killer Sri Lankan curry. Pick the ocean view rooms for unobstructed views of the beautiful Indian Ocean.

Colombo, Sri Lanka
Reviewed 11 September 2016

The highlights of this hotel are:Beach front, pool, plenty of sunbeds, design concept, lighting system in the room and the speaker. The location doesn't have many attractions such as hotels in Hikka or Galle so it's not a place you'd enjoy for a long holiday. The food could be better and the hotel doesn't allow drinks (alcohol) by the pool,...

Dear Cinderssss, thank you for your kind words on JUCE. We have looked into allowing drinks by the pool and now happy to say, we have changed our policy on the same.

Reviewed 6 September 2016

Easily the worst hotel we have been to. Horrible food, bad presentation, bad service, rooms are not cleaned after the previous visitor. You can have better value for money at any other hotel nearby. This hotel is an embarrassing venture for Casa Group.

Dear Aathif, thank you for taking the time to review us. The concepts of CASA Colombo Collection and JUCE are completely different where as these're 2 different brands aimed at 2 contrasting segments of the market. CASA is a luxury boutique brand where as JUCE is a more lean luxury brand which is affordable to the mid-ranged traveler as well....

Me and my husband stayed in this hotel recently, it was only a night experience before we proceed to our next destination.

 The service is excellent compare to the other boutique/budget hotels in Sri Lanka. The hotel manager is very helpful and polite, the other staff were also helpful and trying to engage a conversation with the guests.

The review is based on our very recent experience over the weekend at Hotel Juce. We were hosting a foreign friend and chose hotel Juce to spend two nights based on the exceptional reviews and photos on TripAdvisor.

We came across this not so heard hotel on our way to Ambalangoda. But the stay there was unforgettable and enjoyable. The hotel is situated away from the buzz of the town. The adjoining beach was so serene. The rooms were modern and well equipped. We loved the special features of bluetooth speakers and custom ambient light changer! There features...
