Family with young children

Hotel is spotless pool was spotless
We stayed as a family with young kids, I would not recommend at all .. The beach you can not go on it as full of large crags and waves are dangerous. you can only use the pool there are no activities for children. The food is limitless for children mine lived on chips.... The food selection is repetitive and taste the same . Breakfast was the best meal of the day. The staff are really nice! But expect tipping all the time. The hotel is bit run down but the staff are constantly cleaning and trying to make your stay pleasant . The hotel is very far from Anywhere. I'd rate this hotel for OLDER couples who want sit back relax and do nothing as there is nothing to do. I'd recommend going all inclusive however you will order food from other eateries as food again is repetitive On all the staff make this hotel and is for older couples

Gokul K. Couples India, April 3, 2015
Great property but in a remote location

Room, Ambience and Pool
First things first, this hotel is no where near Bentota! Its in Kalutara which is a 30 minutes by a Tuk-Tuk to Bentota. Hence if you are expecting the same lovely beaches as Bentota prepare to be disappointed as the hotel is located on a narrow strip which has the sea to one side and the lake to the other. The location and area is bit isolated and hence one can expect a lot of touts for day trips and tuk-tuk rides as they are the only options available and they are local residents which makes it even more difficult to find other services. But the property itself is really great, the reception area and the pool side are simply fantastic. The services offered are nice as expected of a property of this calibre. But some of the staff to make a hard sell to push their services to guests. As the beach front is outside of the property expect to be approached by some of the local residents claiming to be in dire straights and need the tourist's help to live and in return as to eat their restaurant or travel in their friend's tuk-tuk or give donations in money or in kind. The menu options are good but can be better but the settings are great in all the dining outlets.

Generally OK. Friendly staff although slow service. Housekeeping very good. A Good variety in cuisine. We booked 4 rooms as it was family holiday.
