    We stayed here for the last 2 nights of our Sri Lanka tour. It is located right on the beach. The rooms are fantastic. The restaurant is great. There are also many beach bars and restaurants close by. Would definitely stay here again.

    The hotel is beautiful and offers great value for money but the breakfast they serve is pretty much the worst I have had ever. The room was nice, clean and spacious; we stayed in the sea view room on the top floor and loved it.
