Love their pools. They have 3 different pools. Turtle pool for the kids, Red pool and the Blu Pool, Sri Lanka’s first glass fronted pool. That was a new experienced for us and kids enjoyed it a lot. But food was very basic nothing special… very average buffet. Rooms are very small so it was difficult to relax in the... More

Lovely hotel on a nice and happening beach. Very clean with good food. Good choice of restaurants to choose from on this beach. Interestingly this hotel does not have any rooms sea facing. Nice pools and a beach you can swim on. Good & efficient staff, even had our take away breakfast at 4.30am ready. Clean and spacious rooms. Good... More

Upon arrival they made me pay for the room a second time (the room had actually been prepaid online) and since the date of my checkout more than 40 days ago I haven't been able to talk to a manager to get a refund. I've sent countless email and even hotels.com who is helping me hasn't been able to get... More

The room is very spacious. The bathroom is magnimous. The bath tub has enough place for 2 people. Would surely... More

This place is right on the beach. They've got 2 pools, one is overlooking the beach elevated so above ground, this is quite sandy and not sure if they clean it that often. The other pool is where the rooms are locked away from the beach, pool has red tiles and is quite nice at night, and isn't deep. Pool... More

We had lunch in its Beach Restaurant during our visit to Galle Fort. Very nice place to enjoy the sea view and food. However, the food is average kind. Interior is good. Can spend hours by observing the waves and relaxing with friends / family.

We had our buffet breakfast at this place. The restaurant was dirty and filthy. The food on the counter was cold. Had too many flies in there
