the best things abt this hotel, next to the beach

Its been 2 days and I m already missing it.. The location and staff is grt . this s one of the most happening place. You have a beach rite next to the resort and around 6 restaurants on the beach as well. If I come back next tym I will surely stay der. You have a metro track as well next to the resort but it will not disturb you after 10 in the night..

Uncomfortable but convenient.

Close to beach and dive centers, close to restaurants, helpful staff.
Pros: close to beach and diving activities, cheap, helpful staff. BUT: Rooms were very poorly maintained and not very clean. Cheap shouldn't mean poor maintenance and low standards of clenliness. It should simply mean non-luxurious. Rooms are falling apart and it should be extremely easy and cheap to fix the broken stuff and the plumbing. It is also right next to the train tracks, so it is a bit noisy. The restaurant is terrible and plays awful music. I only tolerated it because I was staying for only 2 nights and it was very close to the dive center.

Cheap stay with a good location close to the beach

Close to the beach, cheap, nice seating near the pool
The stay was not the best. The rooms were very ordinary, poor quality fixtures. The Shower curtain rod fell on our head once. The only good thing about the hotel is the closeness to the beach. I will not be staying here again as there appears to be better options in the same range around the same area that looked more appealing.

A very clean swimmingpool but close to railway

Friendy staff, clean swimmingpool, cheap
The hotel is nice! The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel have a nice and clean swimming pool. The rooms are clean but the wifi does not work in the hotel room but you can find a good internet connection in the restaurant and lobby. I recommend the hotel. One disturbing thing is the railway. The trains sounds a lot but the trains starts at 6:30AM and stops around 10:30PM so you will not be disturbed during the night.

We regret to have chosen this Hotel

Proximity to Beach
The admn staff in the night shift is very arrogant. Except for the room we stayed in everything else is in bad condition. All the furniture is old, It doesn't look like a resort. Food is OK but little on the expensive side. Lot of renovation going on. They are constructing a pool. But nothing is spacious here. The ambiance of the resort is very bad. No grass, No lights. There is a train track which runs through the resort. No night trains ply so this is OK. The primary manager and his support staff in the night are stupid, reckless, arrogant, non cooperative. Doesn't make any sense to suggest this to any one....Not at all suggestible for families as lot of illegal activity runs here. There are girls waiting in the Autos(Tuk Tuk) in the parking area in mid nights. The night staff themselves are ready to arrange for one.
Nightlife Tip: For Party goers and Pubs, you can goto Cleaopatra Karaoke/Night club ( This is the only one which is afforable, spacious and good crowd. You can goto casionos( MGM, Bally's) all are 10 kms away in the Colombo Downtown (KalluPitiya) either or Galle Road or Duplication Road.

No pros,
The hotel is located the other side of the double rail track, not on the beach as many other hotels. When arriving, the bedroom doors were being painted on both sides, hence a strong smell of paint. The pillow covers and sheets were very worn, showing many small holes.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Mount Lavinia has many nice restauratns right on the beach.
