    Very good

    Atmosphere was relaxed and staff were helpful and friendly. The situation between the sea and the lagoon is good as it provides two distinctly different aspects, one is beach and pool, the other is wildlife and more natural. The room was good although it could do with a little updating and more space - no real issue though. The option of outdoor/indoor dining is nice as is the simple pool/bar/lounging area next to the beach. After we had booked the hotel we read several bad reports and made sure that we had an alternative if they turned out to be true. Fortunatly they were not true to our stay and we had a very plesant time so thank you Kani Lanka.

    The buffet meals were repetitive and after a few days we were looking for an alternative. Quality was fair though and there was a reasonable variety of choice for grownups but not for children. Watersports equipment is basic and unpowered but ok for some gentle fun. Powered equipment, although desirable, would destroy the tranquility.

    Very good

    A very comfortable place with an easy going lifestyle

    The food was bland and overpriced. The service in the restaurant was ill-mannered (e.g. asking for a Lions beer, getting an Anchor beer with the comment it is the same company, while they have a good Lions on the tap)

    Superb

    Hotel staff were very helpful and location of the Hotel is great! Hotel located exactly where Bentota river goes into Ocean, in my opinion best place to spend honeymoons.

    food variety in the hotel restaurants are poor, there are only 2 restaurants and 2 bars only.

    The pictures on their website and Booked.net is nothing like what the hotel is like and the room is a lot smaller and alot older than the pictures. The staff are so slow in getting your orders. I would have definitly stayed in an another hotel had I known. Certainly not value for money and it shouldn't be 4 stars.

    My fiance and I were traveling to be married at the hotel. The staff arranged our wedding perfectly, and far exceeded our expectations in their professional and polite manner. We felt well taken care of, with our happiness their primary concern. I would recommend this venue to any couples, as the areas was beautiful, the staff amazing, and the rooms clean and comfortable.

    We have no complaints regarding our stay.

    the staff sometimes appeared to have conversations in their own language in the middke if dealing with guest queries or complaints. No diet cole available in the hotel.

    The Spa was outstanding. The massage I had was the best I have had anywhere in the world and it took place overlooking the river. Absolutely beautiful and very good value. The breakfasts were good including freshly cooked omelettes.

    There was limited space to eat meals, including breakfast, outside. The sunbeds and towels were old and showing signs of wear. There was no a la carte menu available and only a buffet which I hate!

    Resort and if you like that with no places to go other than the hotel then fine. Check in and stay in....only thing you can do,,

    Food was to much catering international taste...

    Good

    Very professional SPA. Try the massage. New architecture and interior. There are worse hotels in Sri Lanka.

    All in all the level of service is not comparable to international standards. If you complain to the manager about it, you now why this hotel is bad managed. He does not take you serious and you cant not take him serious. If you don´t expect too much for your money and if you are not used to high standard it is a good hotel. btw the pool is sieged by dozen of black raven.

    اخترته لبعده عن الزحام والأماكن العامة، إطلالته على المحيط مذهلة بهدير الأمواج.. وفي الخلف إطلالة على البحيرة رائعة بهدوء الماء، وكان حجزي إطلالة بحيرة ولم يوفوا بوعدهم وفي اليوم التالي عرضوا علي إطلالة على المسبح فلم أرغب بها وأحببت البقاء على إطلالة البحيرة الرائعة،أشكر المدير "جانيتا" لمحاولته علاج الموقف بطرق مختلفة مقدرة. يوجد خارج الفندق بعشرات الأمتار مطاعم جيدة بأسعار معقولة..لست مضطرا لدفع الكلفة الباهضة في الفندق. توجد أماكن متعددة للاسترخاء وممارسة بعض الهوايات.. استمتعت وقد أعود! يبعد عن المطار ساعتين إلى ساعتين ونصف !! فتنبه

    بعض فريق الخدمة كان مزعجا بتجمعاتهم وكلامهم المرتفع ليلا وصباحا بجوار الغرف.. اضطررت لإسكاتهم وتحذيرهم. تعجبت من وجود أصغر صالة جيم رأيتها في الفنادق.. حيث لم تتجاوز مساحتها 4×3 بأحسن الأحوال

    Расположение отеля, его дизайн и инфраструктура. Красивое место. Хорошие завтраки, особенно выпечка!

    Кухня ресторана очень средняя (иногда просто не вкусно). Wi-Fi постоянно «отваливается», скорость его крайне низкая.

    Very good

    In dit hotel betaal je veel te veel voor een taxi of toektoek. Personeel is opdringerig en durft aan gasten sigaretten dan wel drank te vragen. Sigaretten betaal je veel te veel voor. Ze lichten je op. Rekening wordt als je niet oplet dubbel gerekend.

    mooi hotel met name design

    Het zwenbad gebruik is niet mijn stijl. Veel "Sport" en activiteiten. 's morgens vroeg al de bedden met haddoeken beleggen en de hele dag liggen en braden,Bederft het uitzicht voor mij. zelfs het gras en de bomen vallen niet meer op. De zonnenbrandlucht hangt de hele dag in de omgeving. In tegenstelling tot de mooie desingn hotel vind ik dit stijlloos.

    Fabulous

    Ruhige Oase im Süden von Kalutara.

    Die Serviceorientierung ist meist sehr Sri Lanka geprägt. wenn man etwas möchte, muss man fragen. Dies wird auch meist sofort umgesetzt. Das bewusste Hinschauen fehlt hier manchmal. Aber, wie gesagt: Wohl eher landestypisch.

    Superb

    Hotel selber ist neu und luxuriös. Wenn man von der Karte Essen bestellt, dieses ist leider unteres Niveu.

    Essen a la card sehr schlecht und wenig. Lage zwar am Strand, aber kein schöner und sehr viele lästige Beach Boys.
