We booked this last minute after a change of plan to our travel schedule without having any information about the place appart from the misleading website.It probably once was a good hotel but 30 years later without any maintenance it has turned it into a dump. We stayed approximately 30 minutes, enough to see the dirty, tired broken rooms,the filthy...

Managed to escape this hotel after 3 hours. A demolition site best describes this hotel with all the broken windows, rooms gutted, no fronts on them, with broken sun beds stored in them. The pool advertised as "sapphire blue" was the coluor and density of pea soup, water from a huge hole in the grounds being pumped into it. The...

We booked a 6 weeks holiday of a lifetime retirement present, which turned out to be a holiday from hell. The hotel beach looked a dream in the brochure but it was actually the beach on the next bay. Every amenity which it states in the brochure just wasn't there. The beach was filthy with dogs mess, fishing boats, rubbish...

we have used Mercury direct 3 times before and have stayed in such a shambolic hotel and have also visited Sri Lanka x2 before so this was our third visit the statement of recently renovated is a total misrepresentation of this hotel, we managed to escape after 1 week to another slightly better hotel. There was a steady stream of...

I had a 3 week package at this hotel with Mercury Direct, who obviously failed to inspect the property properly, as it was incredibly run-down and shabby, and had unrepaired broken windows etc. from a big storm a few weeks before. The so-called "refurbished deluxe rooms" were spacious and clean with new blinds and modern air-con, but they failed to...

Most of the clients were complaining about the beach because there are fishing boats anchoring, This happened after the Tsunami. For the safety of their boats the owners used to anchor their boats in this area.The Management is already discussed with the Officials concern to move their boats to another side.The Fisheries Minister has promised them to give a proper...

We were perturbed the minute we drove into to the hotel. Rooms are shabby and was initially not clean. Beach is a danger zone, broken glass dog mess everywhere. Smell of diesel as soon as you open your door. Stairs to beach dangerous, broken windows and no balustrade so nightmare if you have children. Not enough sun beds so went...

Even as we drove down the drive I had that feeling that this was not a good hotel. It is so tired and run down. The staff were not really interested. As we were shown to our rooms, there was a cockroach on the wall, the corridors recked of curry. Once inside the room, the bathroom was dirty and all...
