"Had a good stay, location is great on the lagoon, not far from a good beach and a side road with lots of restaurants and bars. Room was very good, we had a junior suite, but think there are better value options in Sri Lanka (although not in Trinco, hence why we stayed here). Overall would recommend if you have the cash"

"The staff were very attentive, friendly and efficient. We were two friends having a short break and enjoyed the relaxing time we had there. The sea eagles were a sight to see when the fish were being hauled in. Whilst there was a bit of a swell to the waves the sea was basically safe for swimming for those able to do so. The food was very good and with the option of eating at The Crab restaurant on the same site there was a range of food styles to choose from. We flew to Trincomalee airport which is not that far from the hotel however the transport was expensive at Rs4,000/= it is best to use a three-wheeler (having first agreed the price) rather than have a van or car, Rs800/= is a good price to pay currently. The three wheeler we used had probably the most honest driver I have experienced in my six years in Sri Lanka."

"We were staying in this hotel for 5 nights at the end of trip around Sri Lanka. We decided that we rather choose 5 stars hotel in Trincomalee instead of going for the same price on Maldives in hotel 3 stars. Everything was excellent. Rooms are big, clean, staff is cleaning the room 3 times in day. Food was delicious and very nice prepared. Especially breakfast - amazing. Beach is clean, nobody is there all around, so you can really enjoy every single minute. Staff is very friendly and they are gorgeous. Only internet wifi is a little bad covered in the room. It is working in the restaurant and bar and reception. "

"Basically the facilities there are deserved to be called as four star hotel, except for a couple of furniture you may feel a little bit rough which are made of raw wood, others like Appliances, timber floor, modern toilet & shower and bedding are all fantastic. It is more like a boutique inn, the staff there are not as professional as those in five star hotels, but they are extremely nice and make you feel welcome. BBQ buffet was available for dinner during our stay, we sit together with other people at one big table and played board game after dinner. It was amazing. The experience was terrific, and far beyond our expectation, highly recommended."

"From The moment we were greeted with the custom Sri Lankan overflowing friendliness we felt right at home in this beautiful paradise like resort. The rooms are spacious and clean, the restaurant food is delicious. Stick to the Sri Lankan loca spacialties though, I have yet to find someone in Sri Lanka who can cook a decent steak. They arranged a trip to Pigeon island for us which is straight across and only a 5 minute boat ride away. The wifi in the room is super slow and basically non-existent, much better in the reception area. But then, what do you need wifi for in paradise?"
