Avoid the “party weekends”!

United Kingdom

We stayed at the Amari for 2 nights in September 2018. In keeping with most quality hotels in Sri Lanka, we received a warm greeting with cool towels and a drink We were given a ground floor/pol level room with a small patio/private sun beds which was really nice. Large room, with good storage for clothes etc. However the wardrobes and case platform are located in the bathroom, meaning it’s very easy for your clothes to become steamy/damp. Also strange sliding glass door arrangement between the toilet and shower, meaning only one of these could be closed at any time. Also the drench shower was so powerful that the drain couldn’t cope and unless careful you would end up with a flooded bathroom floor. Restaurant was good, with a fantastic choice. Alternatively the roof top bar did a burger and beer option and also some nice small meals. Nice vibe on the roof it’s really friendly staff. Well located for central Galle. Nice private beach However our first night of the stay was a Saturday and the hotel felt pretty much full - mainly with “wealthy” locals - who took over the pool area at about 5pm with their own DJ/sound system, drowning out the pool bar’s own music with their banging dance music. This wasn’t too much of an issue initially, but when we returned to our room after dinner (say 9pm) it was still booming out, as it was as we attempted to sleep, and indeed went on until 5.30am, after which the music became singing, and loud chat around the pool table in the adjacent beach club. We complained several times, but apparently the hotel management couldn’t do anything as it was a “private booking”. This really spoilt our stay at Amari. The Sunday was much better (quieter) apart from the numerous people with hang overs who were lying on any available sofa etc. Nice hotel, but the management need to get tougher on the small number of thoughtless guests who spoil it for the majority (at weekends).

Not what you would expect from an Amari Resort

Tel Aviv, Israel

We stayed in Amari a few times in Thailand and had a good experience. This was nothing like the Amari we remembered. The hotel is only one year old and looks like a hotel that was build 15 years ago. Putting aside the decor and the style, you can easily see that the maintenance of the hotel is below average. Its a shame because it has a very nice pool and right on the beach. We were put in a room on one side of the hotel that doesn't even have an elevator to go to the pool. The main thing that put us off was the corridor to go to the room. All of the corridor had windows on the left which were open and on the other side were all the machines for the air conditions. It makes you feel like you are in a factory and not in a hotel. The good thing about the hotel was the pool and that the rooms were new and clean. That said everything about the small things made you feel like you are in a 3 star hotel. The management can easily change this by investing and keeping the hotel much more like a 5 star resort. Sorry Amari.
