Good location, but hardly value for money
The resort is literally on the beach which was great. The Christmas Eve dinner was beautiful.
Apart from it's excellent location on the beach, we were quite disappointed with this hotel upon arrival. The entrance is right on the busy main road which makes it look very dingy. We booked a superior room that was on the side of the road, and was incredibly noisy. You will not get a good night's rest if you are in a room on this side of the hotel. The price we paid was far too much for this hotel as it is not well maintained. Below is what was wrong with our room : - Cupboards were dirty - All the fixtures in the bathroom and room were rusting and dirty. I tried to open my room door and the whole door handle fell off because it was rusted. - Our bathroom basin did not drain well. We had to run the tap very slowly for it to drain properly. - We rarely had hot water to shower with because many rooms share geysers. - Furniture in the lounge areas is dirty and needs to be replaced. What made our stay slightly better was the effort the staff put in to the Christmas Eve dinner. The spread was great and they organised an outside dance floor for the guests. The chef cooks really great food, but the menu is far from traditionally Sri Lankan, and a lot more expensive than local restaurants in the area. The breakfast spread was ok, not the greatest. Also, while the beach was great, there are tons of boats on the water in front of the hotel and there is a strong smell of diesel coming from them throughout the day. This makes relaxing by the pool very unpleasant. Overall, Coral Rock was avarage and not value for money. It could be a lot better if the rooms were better maintained and if the roadside rooms were soundproofed. I would not return here until this happens.

Ocean view large room with great services
Sea view room, beach pool with great sunset and breakfast
My boyfriend and I spend five nights at this hotel and had an amazing time over New year holiday. We had a super delux room with ocean view on the 1st floor. The room is spacious and well designed with sea view. Super clean and a very big bathroom. We enjoy the simple design but yet cozy style which makes us feel at home. The balcony was also very big right above the pool with such beautiful sea view although it's so close to the beach so sometimes we have to close the curtain as people could look into our room from the beach! The area is quite part of the beach where many boats parked but the quality of beach is still good. The hotel invited us to their New Year Eve Gala which was really well organised with an amazing international buffet. They have decorated the pool area amazingly and had a DJ for the night! Plus organised an amazing fireworks on the beach around mid night! Overall we have nothing but good thing to say about this hotel. Will definitely come back again!!!

Nice and friendly hotel directly at the sea
The room had a great view of the sea, staff were very friendly and helpful, the restaurant was good and reasonably priced
Our stay was great: with great view of the sea and direct access to the beach we frequently went for a swim in the sea. The hotel is just next to the Coral Sanctuary, which offers the great opportunity to see loads of different, colourful fish while snorkeling. The restaurant is nice: the breakfast was nice and diverse, for dinner it offered good value for money (in comparison to other restaurants in the city). The hotel has friendly staff, who were very helpful.
