Right by the ocean, get awakened by the waves

Location, great value, cleanliness
This resort was newly renovated and is right on the doorstep of the Indian ocean. Watch the sun set past the horizon and be awakened by the sound of the waves crashing against the coast. The rooms were adequately clean and water pressure sufficient, including heated showers. The only downsides are that they linked two single beds to make a double bed and therefore it was a little uncomfortable, but that wasn't much of an issue. More importantly, the staff were just average- they weren't rude, but they weren't warm and welcoming either. There's a shack that serves wonderful seafood, crabs and tiger prawns for US$10 per dish, two or three doors away from the resort which is a must-go. With its excellent location, it's still all in all a great choice to stay. Nowhere else in the world would there be a oceanfront room going for US$49.

An underwhelming stay

location, comfortable beds, decent tv channel selection
It was average and has dropped in standards since my last visit in December. The breakfast was tasteless and the coffee was really weak. The bathroom was not the cleanest and the toilet seat was stained. Despite arriving at the hotel past the check-in time, our room was still not ready and we had to wait an additional 20 minutes before it was.

Nice Location ..Quite Relaxing..lot of Options

Location, Value, Room Standard
We stayed for 2 Days. It was great Experience. Nice Location. Service was quite good. Few options in the Menu but quite great. Not of Restaurants near by with varieties. Beach and pool was nice. Nice pool bar moderately priced with reasonable options. Staff was friendly and always smiling. They have converted a double room in to a triple room for one of ours up on check in. i would go there again.

Cheap and Cheerful

Price, location and pool area
I had read other reviews on this site and some had an issue with not getting free stuff. I guess it's like budget airlines, they can offer competitive rates because they don't give their customers things which they don't always want and need. So, you don't get the toiletries or tea and coffee making facilities but I don't care as I never use that stuff anyway. I'm more interesting in the price and it was very competitively priced and if staying somewhere that's clean, fresh and modern (as it's recently been updated) is more important than little bottles of shampoo, this is a good option. One reviewer complained that the noise made by the sea in the sea-view rooms was disturbing and yes, surprise surprise the sea does make a noise. You will also be able to hear traffic if you get a room on the other side of the hotel but that's true of pretty much any hotel room on that side in any of the hotels alone the main Galle Road. I was only there one night, so it didn't matter. I really liked the pool, bar, decking area - very cool. Again, someone complained about no private beach but none of the hotels on the Galle Road have a private beach - not one. So all in all a good decision.
