Depending on Sri Lankan service, this is one of the best hotels. The stuff is very kindly, rooms are clean, beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast is common with international taste. We didn't take all inclusive, that is why we have to care about our dinner. In the hotel dinner was calculated for us about 25$ for a person. The only...

Come on people, get real. This hotel is not out of this world ,nor is it rubbish. However if you stay here year on year then you may feel it is excellent and on the other hand as a one off, small incidents such as allegedly slow service do not make for a bad rating. My partner and I have...

It isn't simply the thoughtful layout; spacious, well-tended gardens with adequate loungers in either sunny or shady areas fronting the beach, nor is it the spotlessly clean pools and swim-up bar. It isn't the comfortably appointed rooms, nor even the variety and outstanding quality of the cuisine. It...

Let's start with the positives. Nice food with a good varied choice, rooms clean, most staff (see below!) polite and friendly. The negatives. AIl incl drink a bit limited, 1 glass of wine per person with lunch and dinner and no diet drinks (not good for myself, being a diabetic). Entertainment is the standard singer/keyboard, local dancers etc which are...

We returned from a 10 night all inclusive stay at the Royal Palms Beach Hotel in Kalutara booked through Mercury Direct. We were travelling with two children aged 5 and 7 years and on arrival at the hotel, we were shown to our room which consisted of 2 single beds and was classed as a twin room. On enquiry, we...

We came home from the Royal Palms a week ago and we have many happy memories of both the Royal Palms and Sri Lanka. The staff in the hotel are absolutely wonderful.
