A very brief stay before flying home

Deal, United Kingdom

A stunning location on the beach with beautiful views out to sea. Lovely rooms. The staff however were not as friendly as all the other hotels on the tour which was disappointing and there was a buffet for dinner with no other options available - not easy for the vegetarian visitors.

Great start to our holiday

Bristol, United Kingdom

We stayed here as part of a tour of Sri Lanka, very comfortable room, friendly staff and excellent food. Lovely pool, very relaxing, even spotted otters in the lagoon! A great start to our 2 week tour, would recommend for a couple of nights but a bit remote for a longer stay.
