Nice ocean view

Location, food and staff

Good location - but rooms need attention!

Beach View, Conveniently Located, Comfortable Bed
Room had a nice comfortable bed and hotel has a nice view of the ocean. However, if you are coming with a driver, be warned that unlike most larger hotels in Sri Lanka, this hotel does not provide accommodations for drivers - you will need to pay for room across the street for them. This was an unwelcome surprise upon arrival. Also, room needed upkeep - paint showed peeling and there was an odor in the room. Waves also made loud crashing sounds on rocks outside hotel windows making it noisy at night when trying to sleep. Finally, bellboy brought only some of bags down when checking out - he never came back for the rest of them. I had to go back up to room and bring last bags down. Overall, a surprisingly disappointing experience.

the hotel is a bit run down, food is cold

location at the beach
the hotel is run-down and not very clean (especially the bed sheets are very old and dirty). Bar is small and not inviting, pool area is nice but small, nicely located right at the beach though. no internet connection in the rooms (other than stated in the hotel description). Staff is friendly but not very attentive. pictures on the internet look a lot nicer than reality

The View , Lounge area on top floor, Room Comfort
Awesome. Although we spent more time out traveling . the return to our large comfy rooms was a welcome sight for a clean up.

Room , Common Lounge Area on 2bd Floor and View
Serendipitous and Serene. It was like living a dream of staying next to the beach and waking up everyday to either see the cloud rush in or the silvery blue water shizzle in the sun.

Nice hotel with very comfortable room.

Bed, swimming pool, location
Overall good stay. A bit noisy as room faced the main road. I would def recommend people staying and wouldn't mind coming back!

Lovely Beach view - Excellent location

very good Location - lovely Beach View - very nice Pool .
great location and stunning beach view if you get a room with beach view.the room finishing is great and the bathroom is very clean. i had only one issue with this hotel: in sri lanka, there is a common understanding with hotels that the hotel will be responsible for the accomodaion of the tour guide(driver) once the tourist checks in.this is common all over srilanka usually the hotel would have a big room ( with maybe 10-20 bed) only for this reason. coral rock did not provide accomodation for my driver and he had to wait for 3 hours ( that was after an 8-hour long journey from nuwara eliya ) to find himself a place to stay. this is somthing i do not appreciate about this hotel, everything else was very good.

"Super beach retreat"

comfort by the beach
i had a lovely stay - they upgraded me to a deluxe room and the staff were very friendly and helpful. the breakfast was super - the choice of the spread was immense that i could not make up my mind what to eat and what not to. the location of the hotel makes it the best if you want to have a great stay by the beach. i also took a boat trip to see the corals. the prices outside hotel for everything including food is rediculously expensive and i recommend you try from the hotel menu itself for good deals on food and beverages and excursions.
