The old adage, you get what you pay for, certainly applies here. The hotel offers a quick check-in with a refreshing welcome drink. Then you are given a tour of the facilities. The tour starts with the dramatic spiral staircase and then gives you a good idea of where you are and what is available. Once at your room, you...

Sea view rooms are beautiful but very far from the main areas. The beach was very rocky and sea was very choppy. Beautiful sunset from the lobby area. The staff were very friendly but food quality was very average.

They are definitely the best hotel in Galle. Room were huge and very clean and comfortable with all 5 star facilities. Staff were very well trained and they were very helpful. Food was excellent and their buffet has a huge variety of choice. They face the sea to produce one of the most breathtaking views.

Rooms are large and very well appointed. Experience on arrival terrific, sat an watched waves crashing into the large rocks 50 meters in front of us for a couple of hours (knocking back so reasonably priced champagne). Had dinner in Restaraunt and had wide choice of cuisine. Food was well prepared, service was good. Definite recommendation.

The Bad: We arrived without a booking, but had previously check room availability online and it was the quiet season after all. Upon arrival, we are told that all standard rooms were completely booked and we would be forced to pay for a Super Delux room, which we were happy to do considering they were full.

We had a wonderful time at Jetwing Lighthouse. Everything was wonderful - the view, the rooms, the food and the service. There are two great swimming pools, one with a fantastic view of the ocean and the rooms are huge! It is a fantastic base to go whale watching in Mirissa. Highly recommended.
