Check-in took a while since we had arrived at 9AM but got a room in an hour. The room was good and spacious with a mountain view but the shower...

Stayed 3 night on business. Most guests seem to be on package tours. Pricey room service. Shops in walking distance. Strong management, issues addressed immediately when possible. Great breakfast buffet, wide choice, good quality. Staff overall very attentive and correct. In-room desk too small for working. WiFi reasonable, easy access, sluggish during evening hours. SIM card with data is available...

If any problem arises during your stay please contact Mr Chamara on the front desk and your problems would be solved within minutes. Had a very pleasant stay at the property. Then Indian restaurant Mahek was also really good.

The restaurant was a cross between Butlin's holiday camp and a school canteen. Noisy. The staff didn't mop up spill ages. Reception staff were not well informed and slow on the whole. Will not stay here again.
