It was the best weekend for the few weeks I was in Sri Lanka . Good food . Enjoyed very much swimming every morning in the sea even it is monsoon season. I had a chance to swim with sea turtles in the sea next to the hotel . They are friendly .

Enjoyed the stay and the care towards any request from all the staff. Spent Christmas eve at the hotel and it was a good time for the whole family. Only issue i came across was the internet was too slow... but then when on vacation its better that way....

All in all a decent resort. Good food, pools, rooms but the lack of Wifi in the rooms was a big disappointment. Few restaurants turning right out of the hotel with beach presence, don't turn left there's nothing down there within walking distance.

    Thank you for a good stay . The staff ( security staff at gate; the breakfast staff and the swimming pool staff ) - you are vert welcoming and hardworking . Thank you for a good stay Suggestion - a) please help infer traffic police to make sure that the big buses drive slowly on the main road just outside your hotel b) suggest your hotel put up a message board for guests who like to share a boat for island trips / snorkelling Thank You

    Exceptional Stay! ”
    Visited the Coral sands right after a tiring trip to Yala. We were booked on Deluxe but on arrival was upgraded to Super Deluxe a room with VIP treatment plus a Jacuzzi. From the moment we stepped into this place everything was awesome. The friendliness and hospitality of the staff was amazing. I was at 1st reluctant to travel to this place because of the bad reviews but was shocked at how they have improved themselves. To sum all up I would definitely give them a 5* review and wod live to come back once again with my kids. The location is the best in the area with the rooms facing the ocean and excellent for scuba diving, snorkeling and glass bottom boats. Sadly there were not many fish or corals due to the environmental pollution. But its a great place to enjoy your 1st dive😊 Awesome getaway and will be back sooner than we thought we would👍

    Wow!”
    Arrived exhausted from Tissamaharama and was greeted with a ribbon wrapped iced face towel and a Amberalla iced drink! There after the whole check in was patiently acceded by the FOM Mr. Sanjaya rather generously while offering options and due considerations. So much so that I extended my stay by a day! The twin pools are pristine. The Sea bathing area is rather safe despite the off season waves right in front of the property.

    2 star hotel which needs renovation”
    Stayed 3 nights, hotel is old and everything is pretty much worn out. The entire hotel needs total renovation. Rooms, bar, restaraunt etc. There is problem with cold and hot water, television picture is very bad. As of today the hotel is marketing itself as 3 star facility but you could expect certain standards on this level and especially when their prices per night are pretty high. The worst experience was the boat traffic in front of the hotel beach. Hundreds of glass bottom boats, diving boats etc. Were driving from morning until evening and the smell of gasoline and exhaust fumes was just overkill.

    Nice place, a little improvement required ”
    The room and the facilities were very good, the room smelled a little musty but that's probably because of the salty sea air getting into the woodwork. The staff were on hand to clean up during clean up hours and they did a good job. The views are amazing. The additional services like meals and transport were a little on the expensive side, but there are options for meals outside the hotel, the whole town is filled with quaint little restaurants serving all sorts of food and there are tuk-tuks that will take you anywhere. All in all a good experience.

    NO WIFI IN THE ROOMS! LOVED THE POOL AREA THOUGH!”
    We booked this hotel for 14 people. Only when we got there we got to know that there's no wifi in the rooms so if you want to use it you have to come to the lobby. they didn't include that in the description. The pool was clean and great and we got the deluxe rooms which were good and the view was great and the beds were super comfy. The beach was okay too. The dinner buffet wasn't that great but loved the morning buffet there. variety of choices including live cooking sausages/bacon and waffles. Yum!

    It became a reasonable stay at the end”
    Checked in to the hotel on the 6th of October around 5pm. Booked a standard room and I had to upgrade to a delux rooms as those rooms did not have a nice view. Delux rooms will have a view to the sea. Dinner was an al la carte and the menue was very poor and the food was not tasty. But the breakfast was a buffet and it was very good with wide selection. Second night dinner was a buffet and it was average. Third night it was al la carte and it was the same menue. I called the chef and explained my dissatisfaction. He made some local rice and curry for us. House keeping was very good and the kept the rooms very clean. Staff was very friendly.

    This hotel is in serious need of work. Its a great resort but everything feels old & run down. the rooms are small & don't look very nice & definitely do not look like the photos - maybe if the photos were taken 20 years ago. The staff is lovely, the bar has a lovely band that plays in the evening. We had a nice time but wish they would fix the place up.

    Great value for the money. It's a clean hotel There's no internet in half of the rooms (wifi signal wasn't strong), and if you are connected, just like anywhere else in Sri Lanka (save for some really expensive hotels), internet was slow. But really, you come here to surf, enjoy the beach, etc.. Great bar.
