    Nice stay. ”
    This hotel was nice. A bit expensive. Says it has a private beach. It’s literally a patch of sand with a rock pool. Can’t swim. Very noisy at night time. Especially the dogs. Ask for a room away from all the barking.

    The hotel is definitely not a resort or spa as advertised in Agoda. ”
    The beach is not accessible from the hotel as advertised by Agoda. One has to walk out to a street to reach the beach and it is a public beach. No amenities. Walking was unsafe as there were stray dogs around and we were hassled by locals and by the rum-tubs. Not a pleasant stay and we cut our vacation short. Even lost some money. However the staff were very friendly and service was good. Food was also good. Problem was the location and expectations were not as advertised on the website.

    Lovely modern hotel”
    We traveled with our 1 year old and overall really enjoyed our stay. The staff are extremely accommodating and friendly and they really go the extra mile. Food was great and the breakfast buffet was varied. The only two things that were disappointing were that the kids playroom smelt very bad (musty and wet) and there is a dangerous slippery ledge all around the edge of the pool. This is obviously not ideal with children entering and exiting the pool. The pool is stunning tho and the view is lovely. The massage service offered is absolutely wonderful and a must-do. We would stay again.

    Ideal Recovery Location”
    I always try to have a couple of days to recover after a long flight and many hours to get to my destination. We had decided to settle first near Galle and although we didn't realise this hotel was a few kms from the city it didn't matter. The arrival was a warm greeting and easy. The room was very comfortable and well proportioned with a view of the sea over roof tops. For us all we really wanted was somewhere to gather ourselves in comfort and this place suited our needs perfectly, friendly staff, nice grounds, big pool, good food. The hotel arranged a car for us on our second day to take us to Galle and the driver showed us the sights, was very helpful and charming. In retrospect I think I might have chosen to stay actually in Galle as the hotel is out of the way a bit but for the 2 days we had there it was ideal.

    Thaproban Pavilion Resort & Spa is brilliant. The view from our room overlooked the pool and the sea. There were two swimming pools we spent most of our time in. The resort has a nicely stocked bar and a great restaurant with amazing breakfast and lunch. The spa has a good collection of massage therapies. The staff was friendly and helpful. Beaches in the neighborhood were just a tuk tuk ride away. The resort is peaceful and far away from the chaos. A great getaway for the family as well as for couples or friends.

    Nice hotel. No sandy beach but superb views of rocky beaches from the rooms and balcony.”
    Staff was extremely courteous and catered to our request for Srilankan egg hopper and string hopper breakfast. My son enjoyed the pool thoroughly. The only small drawback is access to sandy beach is from the outside and is a small 15 minute walk...but room sizes are great... bathrooms are clean... room service is fantastic 😊

    nice and comfortable hotel stay ”
    Good service. Rooms are huge and clean .
    We had a very comfortable stay at Thaproban. Our room and bathroom was spacious; clean and bed was comfortable and nice. We had a nice balcony- just that it is a shame we were not seaview facing and had a construction building in front instead. Service staff were also polite and patient. The hotel isn't exactly at the Unawatuna beach-- it is about ten minutes walk away; which is okay in the day but by night; the way back gets a little too dark as there are almost no street lamps along the way.

    Staff were very friendly and helpfull, the room, lobby, pool area and restaurant
    I had a fabulous stay over New Years eve 2014/15. I cannot fault the attentive service nor 90% of the facilities. I also liked the location which was 5 mins easy straight walk to the beach in one direction and 7 minute meander to the village in the other. It was peak season but I felt the room rate was rather ambitious, additionally the gym facilities are in desperate need of maintenance or better still, replacement. They are old and rusty and pull down the overall score for this hotel. Toilet flush also very poor. I would return and would recommend but I would not pay peak season prices again and also due to the gym I would call this a 4.5 star product

    We were transported from city to a quiet, romantic setting with a fantastic view. Staff at the dining, reception areas were friendly, out to please their guests. We liked the huge room, high ceiling and the comfortable bed. Certainly will recommend to our friends. A short walk to the beach, and to other restaurants made it a perfect getaway for us - away from the bustle but near enough if we wanted it!

Our location is away from the main beach like you said 10 - 15 minute short walk, which is actually a good thing as our guests are in a complete privacy location away from the hustle and bustle of the main beach :) Our swimming pool is a eye catcher and our guests enjoy it very much.

    Dreadful NYE stay and definitely not worth USD240 per night that we paid”
    We expected room rates to be higher for NYE but this was a ripoff. Pictures looked good online but felt like we were sleeping in a dusty construction site. Most decent hotels would at least highlight the construction to guests before booking. I'm allergic to dust and wouldn't have booked this. - Room was recently completed and was extremely dusty - ongoing construction in the hotel, so there was a wave of bad odor from the site every time we opened our door - floor was coated with some layer of residue / oil from disinfectant / chemical so there were prints when we walked around the room and bottom of bedroom slippers turned brown. The white bathroom floor also turned brown when wet. - Despite asking for the room to be cleaned thoroughly, it remained very dirty throughout our 2 night stay - bathroom had construction dust on the towel racks, walls, glass divider, etc so towels became dusty - to top it all, there was no phone in the room to call for assistance!!

    We are sad to hear the hotel did not work for you. Yes we had construction occurring in our new wing however all this is now complete, due to bad weather in the country during September / October 2017 our targeted date was dragged further and due to this we had this issue, However the hotel is fully operational now with 0% construction. Again, everyone here is working hard to deliver seamless interactions. For having failed you we are very sorry.

    Hotel room and food was way way way overpriced for this level of cleanliness and staff were slow and construction work so noisy. I can’t believe we paid this much for this kind of room - the bathroom was dirty, towels not replaced, housekeeping slow, breakfast selection very average and food was over priced - I will never stay again and in fact complained to the manager but not much was done

    Closer to sea, however it is rocky and there is no beach. Need to walk approximately for 10 minutes to reach Unawatuna beach. Hotel is new and architecture is nice and the view from room was nice. Those are the only plus points. I felt it is over priced for the service provided. I experienced following issues during my stay: a) hot water supply was not regular, even though I informed the staff, it was not rectified b) there was no phone inside the room, had to go down to lobby for room service c) staff lacks professionalism - Day 1: it was raining when I reached hotel and I had to go inside and ask for an umbrella Day 2 : I was woken up at 5.30 am one staff member knocking the door to ask whether I requested a towel d) lift was not working e) swimming pool was not clean f) part of the hotel is still under construction - therefore it is noisy
