We stayed at Jay's for 3 nights and it was the second visit to Jays. Its quite a rustic hotel and location is ideal for visiting the Cultural Triangle-Sigiirya, Dambulla and Kadulla National Park and also to Anuradhapura ,Polonnaruwa Trincomalee, Pasikuda Beach. We were able to visit "Pidurangala rock" of which is a excellent view of the "Sigiriya rock" and...

I recently spent two nights at Jay's and am confused by the excellent reviews. I encountered several issues, some within and others beyond their control. While staff were very nice, the rooms were not very clean, power cuts were regular, and staff returned laundry to me late, wet and wrinkled. There was also construction ongoing until 9:30pm despite my complaints...

Very well located in the middle of the cultural triangle, but the resort needs to be improved. When we were there, there were works (lightening system), it was busy and noisy. A nice swimming pool (we didn't use it). Food was correct (diner and breakfast). Friendly staff

This hotel is composed of a few bungalows around a pool in a quiet environment. The room we had was clean and offered enough space for two. Bathroom was clean. The pool is located in the garden and is nice. Service was very friendly. A great value for your money.

Room was spacious and clean. The ambience was serene and relaxing. This is a very nature friendly place where you feel like living in...

We stayed at Jay's for 3 nights, - had large and comfortable rooms in a nice garden. The food was excellent, especially the rice & curry buffet evening. Breakfast was delicious, and the pancakes incredibly good. The hotel is perfect for visiting Sigiriya Rock, Minneriya Nationalpark and Polowaruna, and after sight seeing it was very nice to relax at the...

I visited this resort for 2 days during my trip to Sri Lanka. It is located very near to the Sigiriya rock fortress. The facilities are good but any shortfall is more than made up by excellent service offered by Jay and his boys. They took care to prepare a vegetarian meal for me and even served breakfast at 11:30...

Stayed for 2 nights here and it was a lovely hideaway. Surrounded by jungle and with plenty of greenery between the buildings means you have the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere.
