They just didn’t listen Staff eating in the same restaurant as guests!!!
Really lovely anniversary surprise in our room on arrival. Thank you!
Check in was really poor - especially as they let you know you can check in in advance. Rooms are a little tired - especially the bathroom. Quite a lot of noise if you are in the rooms by the reception area. Hard to get a lounge by the pool - people leave towels and don’t actually use them. There is no policing of this (even though they say they do) If you want to have a lounge on the beach you have tk pay for it.
The room was very spacious and the cot bed was all ready set up on our arrival. We were provided at least 2 bottles of water everyday free of charge, room service left me a clean wine glass on the second night without me asking - as I had asked for one to be sent up on the first night. The bathroom was lovely, with a strong overhead walk in shower big enough for all 3 of us to get in after a day at the beach. The food at a the a la carte restaurant and Chatters bar was lovely - although a little over priced I thought for food in Sri Lanka. The gardens are beautiful and lined with palm trees, and there's a nice breeze which helps with the heat. The hotel is right on the beach and you can rent sun beds from vendors as you walk onto the beach (1000 rupees for 2 beds for the whole day). The staff were absolutely faultless. Everyone was super helpful at the bars and pool especially, helping with sunbeds etc if we struggled to find any free in the shade. Everyone was really friendly and especially with our baby girl, they seem to love babies in Sri Lanka. We would definitely stay here again.
Our room was a sea view room, and from the photos it looks like you have a really good view of the sea (from the rooms on the top floor). We had a room on the first floor so the view was obscured by trees, and the canopy over the balcony.. It would be better if there were photos of the view from these rooms too, to avoid disappointment. Also we had a baby and chose to leave the puchchair at the bottom of the stairs every evening as there is no lift.
Location was great with our reservation breakfast buffet was included. Had many choices, very helpful and friendly staff.
Only issue was at the check out time extras that was billed to the room was not notified to the front desk. Had to wait for those to be posted to system.
