  • Great hotel, close to the beach. The hotel is a little old-fashioned. Not large rooms. Shower and toilet at medium level a bit of squeaky bed (try to arrange it) the staff is charming. Help with everything. Large, spacious dining room. Delicious European and Sri Lankan food in the style of a charming waiter-Hassan. That helped us organize a birthday for our daughter.
