We stay at this hotel a couple of weeks back. The best thing about it is the location- its right on the beautiful Nilaveli Beach. The rooms are clean and ok. The bed sheets were washed and new but there were stains all over. My advice is to bring your own set of clean sheets. The towels too are not usable. The AC worked fine but it takes a lot of time to cool off the room. Always book an AC room, its only 1000 extra, you may think you wouldn't need AC with the cool breeze of the sea, but it gets really hot and salty. The bathroom was ok and manageable. All in all ok for one or two night's stay, with the low price you are paying you really can't expect much too. We payed 4250 LKR for a AC triple room which is pretty cheap compared to other star class hotels in the area.
Prices of food and beverage at the hotel is outrageous! Even tea or a soft drink costs thrice the normal price. So bring your own bottled water and drinks. If you go towards the main road and turn right,after about 2 Kms you'll find two small food outlets opposite one another. The food is very clean and cheap and mouth watering. A great variety too.
The hotel arranges a boat ride to Pigeon Island which costs 2000LKR for 7 people. You also have to pay an extra 850LKR for all 7 for tickets to enter the island. I think its about 10-15$ for foreigners. You also have to pay for snorkeling gear, which is about 300LKR per set. Again, you could take these boat rides if you drive further on the main road to the Pigeon Island Boat service managed by the forces. I think they give a better service for a cheaper price.
