Overall good but they have a lot to learn.
Overall good. They have a lot to learn regarding food selection compared to other all inclusive holidays we have taken especially Turkey. We booked B&B but were informed that we should take all inclusive as it represented good value. We don’t agree £70 each per day wasn’t good value at all unless you wanted to snuff yourself or get outrageously drunk!

Very nice
+ Very nice resort. Wonderful huge pool and great pool area on the lawn. Beautiful beach too - and swimmable :). Animation team active. Nice main restaurant, lots of food choices. And tasty. Live music at times nice touch. Close to the airport, very good choice for a first or last stop in Sri Lanka. - Very large resort, not for those who prefer more privacy. Sometimes loud too. They take day guests (probably there for a meeting or something), so that at one point there were no more sun umbrellas left for us - which should not happen. A bit complicated to get around. Could have more of a local touch.

Family hotel
Loved the hotel and food. Pool was great too. We were AL but when I asked for banana milkshake it was not on the AL. I don’t drink so this was disappointing. Staff are very friendly.

Overall nice facility layout confusing. Staff really nice. Not much entertainment on offer. A little far out to bars, shopping & to find things to do. Food was good.

Very nice hotel with character by the beach.
The staff are very helping and friendly. Always willing to help with any problems you may have. The hotel is not a modern type of hotel, but has lots of character. The two swimming pools are a bonus. The first is a large long stretched out pool with plenty of space for everyone. The other is a large quiet pool for those who want to swim or spend time in the pool with less noise. The eating areas are large and spacious. My only negative point is if you are a vegetarian. Then on some days the choice can be limited. But if you ask the head chef. They will try to make food to satisfy your vegetarian lifestyle the next time you eat. The beach can be littered with some rubbish bought in on the tide from the nearby towns. But the staff do clean it monthly. In August the tide can be a little strong.
