    Perfect Stay for Couples Who Travels Often and Worth the Money”

    I've been at Hotel J Ambalangoda quite few times and it sits in a calm environment in the coastal of Ambalangoda. The view from the room got nothing to be amazed but that beach is perfect for an evening walk. Room wasn't much spacious but clean and was worth the money. Their food is good and nothing to complain about neither to be praised. Good for couples who travels often and goal is to be on a budget.

    Great Hotel”

    First we booked a hotel for one night, then we found a green tour downstairs and stayed one more night. Clean and comfortable, the swimming pool is great, the beach sand is very delicate, it's just a private beach! perfect.By the way, the front desk draws very well. Tell me if it's a coconut tree? hahah~

    A place with potential... ”

    Despite making the booking confirmation, the hotel was not able to locate the booking on their system and promised to call us back (within minutes) to which we mentioned that we will be going for some site seeing but will be expecting the call. 2 hours later, I called Warren Bock who was not helpful and said that they didnt receive the booking confirmation (I had already sent themthe booking confirmation while I was at the hotel) hence unable to do anything as this is not an issue with the hotel and to call Agoda directly. Called the hotel and inquired why I was informed and they said because they dont have the booking. Had to call Agoda directly to resolve the issue and evidently it was an issue with the hotel and they had not received the emails/booking details. This itself is pretty negative for the hotel and poor customer care according to me. But the hotel and location is absolutely marvelous. Food, not that great either but I still would go just to enjoy the location. The pool guys, life guards and security guards were always with a warm smile which was great. And I must say, during my stay the pool was thoroughly cleaned...Something you dont see often. My advise: a) Always take the Fuc'n Amazing View rooms (FAV) b) Once you book, call the hotel and get it confirmed (Since they're crap in managing their own bookings) c) Probably its best to have your meals at another hotel/location but Ill leave this to the other folks to decide. My taste buds might be different d) If you want room service after 10Pm...well that's not gonna happen. Order up and stock up or suffer the consequence

    Cleanliness and the facilities were terrible. ”

    The cleanliness of the place was terrible. Balcony was full with dust. TV was not working. We booked two rooms and one room ac and phone was not working. Management requested to pay more in order to move into another room. Anyway finally provided another room without pay. Not worth for the money

    Clean Hotel without character”

    1. Pool

    First of all, the hotel is not in Hikkaduwa, but in Ambalangoda, which is a 20 min Tuktuk ride up the coast. It would have been nice to know that before. The Hotel is freshly renovated, which is nice, Other than that, it lacks character. It's simply a white bunker on the coast, with no pictures on the walls and an absence of the typical Sri Lankan architecture or charm.

    ホテル自体は小奇麗で非常に良かったです。スタッフの対応も良かった。一つだけ残念だったのは、お酒の販売ライセンスが無い事。無理を言ってハイネケンを買って来てもらいましたが、ショップの4倍の価格で800lkr。ちょっと高いです。機会があればまた使用すると思います。
