          out of season visit
          We stayed here in Nov and were the only guess in the whole resort on one of the two night's, there was one other couple the other night. We took a chance on the weather as we knew it was off season, we had visited before and the beach was great. Unfortunately it was too rough to swim in this time. The resort was almost fully staffed but many are not trained well or poorly managed. The resort is looking tired and needs a complete repaint on the outside and there is obviously no eye for detail by staff or management. On the good side the food was excellent and presented well. Pricing was reasonable for food and drink. Overall wouldn't recommend for an off season visit and the resort management needs to lift it's game.

          Memorable Stay
          We stayed there for two days. Staff was really friendly. If you are vegetarian, then you might have less options. But food was awesome. We had a seeni sambol pizza, which was good. Breakfast was really great. So much variety to taste. We were fortunate enough to go for snorkeling even though it is the beginning of off season. It was a memorable stay for us. Thanks Anilana

          Great stay!
          We had a brilliant time at Anilana, the staff are very friendly and the pools were great. We went across to pigeon island whilst we were there which was amazing! Definitely recommend this. We also went on the hotel whale and dolphin watching trip which was really enjoyable! Unfortunately we didn't see any whales, but there were loads of dolphins, a great boat, breakfast, lunch and snorkelling. The hotel is a bit further away from restaurants but would still recommend it.

          Not all that glitters is gold
          You may be impressed by the pictures of the hotel, but the truth is that this place is disappointing in many ways. Let me point out some of the reasons why staying at Anilana Nilaveli let me down: 1) My room was infested with tiny ants and, on the first night, I had to empty my cosmetics bag and clean absolutely every item in it to get rid of the hundreds of ants that had decided to invade my items. It thought they'd been gone by the morning but, to my surprise, my wardrobe shelf was full of ants again. The hotel manager gave me another room, which meant packing and unpacking everything again. 2) The female toilet by the pool was dirty from day one, and even though the cleaners were informed, the toilet was never cleaned during my three day stay. 3) The wifi works well in the common areas, but forget about getting a decent signal in the upstairs rooms. Considering this is a place where you have nowhere to go, having good wifi is important. 4) Drivers / guides in Sri Lanka are usually given accommodation in the hotels where tourists stay. This is no exception, but our driver complained about bed bugs in his and all other beds provided for drivers. It is unacceptable that a hotel that claims to be five stars treats locals with such disrespect. He told us that even though he had complained about this, nobody had done anything to solve the problem. The hotel itself is beautiful and the beach is decent, but overall it is a place that should not be rated 5 stars.

          Overpriced but a taste of luxury
          We splurged and stayed here for 3 nights at a cost of £250 a night, having booked 6 months ahead!- what you don't expect is to see on Agoda the price slashed to £90 on the day we arrived, when all their rooms weren't sold out. I recognise they need to sell their rooms but this a big difference. I spoke to the manager regarding this and he did upgrade our stay to half board. This was appreciated. The room was lovely it must be said, the luxury you expect. The pool areas were also great to use but they do need to upgrade their hut areas which are becoming dated. This is very easy to see when their theme is white. The food we thought was amazing, especially the buffet when put on. But if you are only offered the a la cart menu we can see how some people may find it limited. On the whole it's by far the best place to stay in Nilaveli but I would not return as the beach itself is polluted with oil, from all the boats crossing to Pigeon island, plus there are cow pats which ruin the look and little jellyfish are in the sea which my wife was stung by.

          Exceptional
          We absolutely loved our stay at Anilana Nilaveli Resort. The hotel and room were clean, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was fantastic and catered for Gluten Free. There are boats sitting on the beach outside the resort waiting to take you to Pigeon Island.

          Two nights for pigeon island
          Rooms were super nice and large. Bathroom was also big and shower had a good power. Pool was okay and hotel is right next to the beach. Only ten mins boat to pigeon island which you must go to! The food at the resort was nothing to rave about and they had no beer! Luckily there are some nice restaurants tuktuk ride away which we found on trip advisor.

          I just loved it to be there in this paradise. The hotel is beautiful, in the middle of nowhere with private beach. I need to rest after being sick and I really enjoyed it. The staff is so sweet!

          Not five star food, rooms are big and clean. Nice beach over all 3 star hotel.
          We stayed two nights 1st day lunch was set menu and not Buffet. Limited choice. The Buffet was not that great. Big clean room (Studio). Hotel is not well maintained its like a 3 star hotel. Not valuable for the money. They had direct access to the beach and 2 big pools which was very convenient. Apart from this they had no other activities. In the balcony there is no privacy hotel staff always moves around. No cctv cameras in important places such as room coridoors. Overall 6/10.

          Beautiful spacious room
          We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the room thoroughly. The reason cleanliness was satisfactory because initially the floor was dusty? As Asians, we tend to step barefoot in the room. Anyway, they attended to the feedback and it was ok. The food was good in the in-house restaurant. Just beware of the monkeys when dining near the pool? That is the beauty of nature. Generally we enjoyed our stay!
