Rating by category:
Registration process was horrible, no advance notice of requests that couldn't be met, incompetent staff without limited flexibility and will to make up for their mistakes. Scores very low on value for money. Dominated by package tour guests from the middle east.
I liked : The location right on the beach, The size and comfort of the Deluxe room (ground floor with grass courtyard) Very friendly staff The design and decor - simple yet elegant enough a constant sea breeze relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.
It apparently depends on the season, but when we were there (May and July) the sea was a little rough, and not too inviting for a swim.
I did not like any things in that hotel it is a vast of money and time I feel like I am staying in jail.rooms have no facility, there is fridge that is locked. there is no number to call inside the hotel, I have paid more than a five star rate to that hotel. very close to that hotel, I went there for my food and drinks, there the hotel room is only 6000 sri lankan rupees here I paid, 248 USD + Taxes for nothing.
I travelled almost all major cities in the world, and stayed most of the best 5 star hotels, this hotel I have seen lot of restrictions, 1. You can not call your frien(male) in your room, which I have not seen anywhere in the world. I came alone to Sri Lanka, I want to sit with my friends hotel people did not allow me to do that. several times I staid in galdari and hilton, it is feel like my home. This expreience I never forget in my life.
We spent great vacation in a hotel with a very professional and friendly personnel and great restaurants with delicious seafood.
the good manegment and servis and buty view
The view is great, the window in the bedroom is great concept to let in he sea breeze.
To many hawkers at the beach. - Bed is too soft. Bed sheets were not changed on arrival. Hair and stain marks were found on the sheets from previous occupants.
Price + vat + service tax + minibar/restaurant prices way to high
Great hotel in an amazing setting.. Nice beach on the doorstep. Easy to get to (just 25mins from airport). On a strip with other good hotel on. Not far from Elephant Orphanage and Botanical Gardens for day trips.
This only thing that became slightly annoying was the beach sellers coming over every hour to sell you something but you just learn to ignore them or to buy something quickly. Also, its nice to feed the local community once and a while ;)
Great staff, very friendly and warm. The rooms had a lot of charm and the welcome/ reception was a nice touch.
The Location is very good. . The Bar is fine. . In total value for the price paid!
However, the food is oriented towards Europian tastes.The Seafood restaurent needs some kind of arrangement to keep way the moiscutoes in the evening
the food was good and rooms Ok
Location was not good in a shanty town area. Being pestered for money all the time.
breakfast and staff
air condition it is stop working in the midle of the night and house keeping done in the afternoon
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food excellent. The room was well appointed and overlooked the sea. There are 2 good sized pools, fitness centre and spa.
Bar and food prices are not cheap, similar to UK prices and should be lower based on costs outside the hotel. The hotel lacks a bit of atmosphere in the evening, after dinner. The service is good but a bit inconsistent and I found myself asking for things to be done which I would have expected to happen routinely - stocking the mini bar for example or replenishing tea and coffee. These are minor points though.,
food portions, but probably way too small for most people - an egg cup of chips as a portion.
Dampness of bedding - very depressing for the amount of money it costs, lack of hotel information
Exceptional staff and attention to detail on all levels
