Great location, we booked an airport pick up which never arrived! The pool area needs maintenance! The towels and linens are worn but clean! Staff cannot handle problem solving. Gym was a let down with broken equipment and useless attendant

We stayed in the standard room with sea view and a nice little balcony which made it great. Our room was nice and clean but a bit small and narrow. These room are not sound proof so a bit noisy if your neighbors stay up late. The breakfast was average. The dance show in the evening was a pleasant surprise....

We expected much more amenities in a 5 stars hotel but the room does not have slippers and other amenities like comb and hand towel. And the bathroom are not well maintained there's a lot of area that are rusty... The buffet dinner at the Breeze not good at all. However the service from staffs are good.

Just relax & enjoy the ambience. It is a wonderful place to stay beside the sea with excellent service, food & staff support. Wish we could have stayed for twice the length of time. Professor Ken Reid.

Beautiful rooms, excellent service, good food, great beach, two pools and a spa. Very relaxing, and the beautiful sunsets make it even better. The dining room features a large buffet with many types of Sri Lankan and international food, as well as made-to-order specialties.
