We booked 2 rooms at this hotel. One was upstairs and one downstairs, both close to the pool.
By Sri Lankan standards both rooms were clean, with good beds, good air conditioning, reliable hot water, clean towels. Internet worked most of the time. The upstairs rooms may be newer as ours was slightly nicer with a better bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel fronts directly onto a very nice beach and is close to the best snorkeling, swimming and surfing locations. It's also a short walk to a swimming beach where the sea turtles come in to feed each day... a truly amazing experience. Pool was a bit dirty, but who needs a pool on such a nice beach. For the price, this hotel was a pleasant relief after a long list of terrible experiences and scams at most of our other Sri Lankan hotels in earlier weeks.
