Laid back stay

We stayed at this lovely hotel in October. We were group of 4 adults. The sea view rooms were lovely and kept clean by smiling and helpful staff. It is a nice size hotel on the beach, and so relaxing laying underneath the trees on a sunbed. Food was good and we never had a problem finding a nice meal. We were all inclusive and with tea and snacks available between meals we never went hungry. The gardens and pool are well maintained, there was plenty of activities to keep you occupied, we went on a couple of tours booked through Asya Tours on TripAdvisor ,can be found them on Google. Prasad who we met on the day tour ,he went above and beyond our expectations and reasonable prices..we visited elephant sanctuary then safari, then next day we set off to Galle. Excellent tours we had with Asya Tours. The real treasure of this hotel is the staff ,always smiling, always helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The Sri Lankan people are warm welcoming and genuine. We all agreed that we would gladly return to sri lanka.

Lovely stay at Centara

We had a great time at Centara. The highlights were the pool (it’s large, a nice temperature and kept the kids amused), the high quality and variety of good at Cafe Bem, the beautiful beach and the friendly staff (particularly the ladies at kids club, who treated my children so kindly). The room was fine, no complaints. We had an all inclusive package, which made things easy as food options outside of the hotel are limited for foreigners. The cocktail selection was a bit limited, but this is a minor thing. We had a great stay and would return if we are back in Sri Lanka.
