Nice pool bar by the sea side
not proper water pressure in the shower which wasn't too pleasant!
It's worn out, but looks like there's some renovation ongoing...which is necessary
Location of the hotel overlooking the beach
Poor breakfast The room is not clean Not recommend the housing for the family In particular the Arab family
The location, staff and food were all very good and the room was very clean
The charge on check out was more than the 'Final' price quoted online. I had to argue as the hotel tried to add on service charges which were not mentioned online.
This hotel is standing by the beach, viewing so good and beautiful, can be seen a wide sea, taste a natural tropical air. The hotel men and rent-a-car driver are very kind and gentle. they gave me a comfort and a relax. also treat me what kind of anything in a detail. Thank you for nice stay.
the beach is excellent. well laid out. good food.
the room needs to be re touched. the wash room should have more bath towels.
Staff are very courteous, helpful. Location, restaurant
Internet only in the lobby. Mosquitos which is normal in Srilanka.
Location, staff, room! The buffet breakfast was fine and the staff of the restaurant were very helpful.
I did not like anything about this hotel except that location is good for travelers who would like to stay on a beach.
I stayed there three nights and changed four rooms. Still, I could not find a room which I could say met bare minimum comfort standards. On my complaint, they would shift me from one bad room to the other. Finally I talked to Mr Donald (perhaps the Manager & apparently a good person). He shifted me to a fourth room which according to him had been recently renovated and had a new AC. Apparently, the fourth room looked good. But cooling problem remained. Even the bathroom shower tray was choked. Based on my experience of four rooms, I can say with certainty that they had set Air Conditioners in such a way that compressors would run for five minutes and then automatically switch off for five minutes to save electricity. So, even if the thermostat was set at 16 degrees, the room would never be cool. Most of the time there was no internet in the lobby. It was a torture to stay there. I have traveled a lot in my life but this was my worst hotel experience.
The amiability and service of the highly appreciated Krishna at the reception desk.
The inconsistency between rooms in terms of the quality of facilities and bedding; in whichever case are not up to standards for a hotel in this price range. Air-conditioner and plumbing disfunction/malfunction.
the helpfulness of the reception staff, one in particular, except i do not know her name
on the booking form it said check out was 14.00 hours but i was asked to check out about 10.00 hours
To be on the beach
Room can be very bad or correct , only by chance . No choice .
friendly staff in the restaurant
i was very angry when i realised the the room was not 39 dolars but 50 because they added so much taxes etc.....and the manager was to cowerd to explain this, because even his reception staff was on my side.. I think the price quoted in booking com must be the final price, otherwise there is not need to publish price!!!
