Don't Go There
Overpriced and nothing like what was offered. No Restaurant. No nearby restaurant. No WiFi Toilets blocked Electrical problems No breakfast other than coffee and toast No beach bar. No staff who could do anything No owner or manager to respond to or claims Lesson learnt.... Do not pre pay with bookings sites. Once you have paid you cannot get out of the booking.

Needs serious improvements
Needs serious improvements in cleaning. There is no room daily make up or change of towels and even emptying the garbage bin. Just nothing. water system is with pumps which work all night. AC does not work as from 7pm so you have AC during day time but in evening and night.

Worst holiday experience ever had in my life
I'm so disappointed choosing this venue for my family n overseas friends. We booked through you seen the beautiful pictures in the net. They really mislead the costomers. Including such places in your bookings make you unpopular too. After the booking I spoke to the number given in the site. I wanted to organize a seafood barbecue to our group which had Aussie n a latvien. Since I recommended another group of my friend too came. Out of the four rooms we booked only one had TV, two had hot water. Rest didn't have. When we asked for wifi which was included they said they don't have. Last minute they also said since their restaurant is under constructions cannot provide dinner. We had to travel here n there for 1 n 1/2 hours to ring a decent place four our group. When we came back they said cannot provide accommodation for driver which they said will be provided. Any way since we didn't have anything to do we stayed the night. When one of our group had asked for a cup of tea at 7 am they had said can provide only at 8.30 with breakfast. But till 9 Bf was not ready. I was ashamed of my myself for organizing this place for my friends. So I went inside the restaurant I was shocked, there wasn't anything a very unhygienic place which I got scared to give bf to our group where there were five young n teen girls. Also there were only some eggs sausages butter n bread. Not even a single onion in d kitchen. The other thing is the swimming pool which they show nicely. Dogs sleep right round it. Inside fungi. I felt like complaint to the public health inspector. In fact you people must visit these places befor you recommend. Coz at last we the guests get helpless since we have already paid for you. But anyway at last eleven of us n other seven of my friends ( they are Swiss nationals) packed our bags n left the place without having even our breakfast though we have paid for bed n breakfast. They manager there wanted the owner to come n speak to us but he didn't I hv a note

Good but could be great
Great pool, hotel right on beach, hotel restaurant on the beach and great food
We stayed 5 nights at Coral Bay Hotel and once we accepted the basic conditions of the room, had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Had issues with the air conditioner when we first moved in which the manager sorted out for us the next day. The accomodation is very basic, no wardrobes, no shower screen , towels and sheets don't get changed and a couple of the light globes didn't work. Lost count of how many power outages we had, carried a torch with us at night just in case. The pool and beach in front of the hotel really make up for all their shortcomings though and the restaurant which is next to the pool has very good food and drink reasonably priced which probably explains why even the guests from adjacent hotels and hostels make use of it and the pool. I wouldn't say the hotel is 3 star by usual standards but probably is by NILAVELI standards

Beautiful location
Nice swimming pool with view on the pristine beach
The rooms are comfortable, though not always clean and in some rooms the shower and AC were not functioning properly. But you get what you pay for. It's pretty cheap and the location is amazing. The garden is nice, the swimming pool refreshing and the beach looks like a private paradise. The food is good too, especially the grilled prawns.

Astuce : louer et manger ailleurs, ne venez que pr profiter de la piscine/plage
Un hôtel avec piscine donnant un accès direct à la plage, qui dit mieux pour se détendre quelques jours au Sri Lanka ? Sûrement pas les clients de cet hôtel pour qui la carte postale s'est quasi instantanément transformée en film d'horreur. Commençons par le site : il faut lui reconnaître son emplacement idéal, sable doré et cocotiers. Mention spéciale pour le jardinier qui s'échine à longueur de journée à faire ce que le reste du personnel, par oisiveté prononcée et assumée sans gêne aucune, refuse de faire. Au fil de la journée, ce surhomme passe ainsi sans difficulté du rôle de ramasseur de mégots, à celui de ratisseur méticuleux d'épines de pins dans le sable, de nettoyeur de piscine, d'arroseur de plantes, de réparateur de canalisations ou encore d'homme-brouette. Chapeau ! Concernant la piscine : comme c'est la seule de la plage, cest effectivement un luxe non négligeable. Encore que, "au pays des aveugles"... Grace au jardinier, elle reste agréable et fraîche toute la journée, surtout pour les futurs plongeurs qui, de 10h à 15h, envahissent par groupes de 10 l'entièreté du bassin. Rassurez vous, il vous reste le pediluve pour vous rafraîchir, sauf les moments où il sert d'abreuvoir aux chiens et corbeaux. Oui car les amis des bêtes ne sont pas en reste. Apres les éléphants de kandy et les mangoustes d'uda walawe, l'hôtel a le privilège de vous faire découvrir le plus riche parc ornithologique de l'île. Mais attention, vous ne pourrez y voir qu'une seule espèce : les corbeaux. Pour mieux les observer nous vous conseillons d'en profiter des la levée du jour et jusqu'à la fin du dîner. Originalité locale : ces corbeaux ont été dressés pour débarrasser et vider les plats plus vite que les serveurs. Conseil routard : Une fois sur votre transat, fermez les yeux et vous aurez l'impression de participer à un remake d'hitchcock. Si vous aimez les chiens faméliques, curieux de tout et aimant se lover entre vos jambes, alors plus de doutes vous êtes au bon endroi

Nous avons passé 3 nuits dans cet hôtel. Dès notre arrivée, l'accueil a été plutôt froid et assez peu agréable. On nous a ensuite conduit vers notre chambre. Visiblement le ménage n'avait pas été fait car la propreté était toute relative surtout dans la salle de bain. Les robinetteries étaient douteuses (traces de calcaire) et les toilettes sentaient l'urine. Pour la literie, uniquement un seul drap house, nous avons été obligé de demander à plusieurs reprises un drap supplémentaire pour pouvoir nous couvrir la nuit. Le rideau totalement occultant venté dans le descriptif de la chambre avait un pouvoir occultant tout relatif et je dois dire que nous étions loin d’être, ne serait ce que dans la pénombre. Le wifi annoncé ne fonctionnait quasiment pas même lorsque l'on se trouvait à la réception. Le petit déjeuner est une blague pour un hôtel qui prétend faire payer ses chambres aussi cher. C’est bien simple, tout est en poudre : café et lait. On ajoute un pauvre morceau de beurre tout transpirant, un peu de confiture et des tranches de pain de mie grillées et éventuellement une assiette de fruits si le serveur ne vous oublie pas. Tout au long de notre séjour (3 nuits), le ménage n'a jamais été fait dans les chambres et les poubelles n'ont jamais été vidées. Pour notre dernière nuit, la climatisation est tombée en panne et aucune solution de remplacement ne nous a été proposé ni dédommagement d’ailleurs. Nous avons passé la nuit sans climatisation et sans même oser mettre en route le ventilateur plutôt très vieillot et très bruyant. Cerise sur le gâteau, pour notre départ très tôt le matin, nous avions réservé la veille, à la réception un tuk tuk pour nous emmener à la gare. Bien évidemment, nous n'avons jamais vu ce tuk tuk et nous avons été obligé de nous débrouiller par nous même pour trouver en urgence (à 5h30 du matin, super pratique) une solution pour ne pas rater notre train à Trincomalee. Nous avons payé la nuit beaucoup trop cher pour cet hôtel qui
