Old and worn out
A.c.. doesn't work, room not cleaned, very old place, bar not functioning, pool was green, no lights on beach, does not look clean, room not what asked for. No sea views from rooms, inward facing. Mosquitos in the rooms, only two old style power outlets, not enough for lights, charging and insect repellant. And much more....choose another place as value for money is not here

the beach could not be used as apparently the waves were too strong (there was a sign of the municipal authority next street over banning swimming)

2/10 Poor

Stay somewhere else. Jetwing HOTEL is nicer.
Not for the location, pretty far off from the main area. Sewer smell from the bathroom, mosquitoes and flies in the room with no mosquito nets. Truly an outdated hotel. Thin walls you hear local residents living in the hotel playing in the hallways and babies crying all night long. Pool picture misrepresents reality. Truly an EEEK factor. They are a bit further from the airport than they state.

Backs on to the beach and close to the airport
The hotel is definitely below 3 star/motel. Very dated and hot. The rooms however were clean and confortable except for the water presure in shower. No hair dryer boxes tissues. The bar is hot and humid without even a fan which really does not invite guests to use it. The pool area had only limited banana lounges and had limited space for all the chairs and guests. We were constantly hassled by the street vendors who came up to the pool to sell their wares. The beach near the hotel was dirty with rubbish strewn everywhere.

Sri Lanka 1st stop
Nice hotel, friendly staff, always helpful. Pool area is perfect for chilling out after a long flight. Close to airport and good restaurants, it was the ideal spot to start the holiday.

VERY GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY
We stayed here for 5 nights awaiting the start of a tour of Sri Lanka. Very good value, breakfasts were good, nice location on beach, large pool just next to beach. Lots of reasonable small restaurants within walking distance but not much else of interest in the area.
