    1. The staff were helpful and friendly. 2. My room was lovely with a balcony facing the sea. 3. The breakfast was nice with very good Hoppers and tasty Sri Lankan dishes.

    1. On Saturday 2nd November, the water from the taps was brown in colour. I did not have a shower and could not use the tap water to rinse my mouth after brushing my teeth. 2. Although my room was facing the sea, it was also facing the music club. The band was playing loud music until after midnight and I could not sleep until the music stopped.

    Beautiful ocean view. Plenty of places to eat & drink. When too hot and just want to relax lots of places inside hotel to sit.

    The location was brilliant and the view from our balcony was amazing. We upgraded our room to a bigger one which was spacious and the bathroom was excellent. We had two double beds as there wasn't a king bed available.

    There was a wedding during the week so unfortunately a number of facilities weren't available which was very frustrating. One of the restaurants has been closed down but we only found out when we arrived which limited the options in the hotel. Some of the exterior features need to be touched up.
