10/10 Exceptional

Loved this property. The reception was so friendly and welcoming. The pool is lovely. The food and drinks (aside from one mistake) was good and reasonably priced. We often had the beach to ourselves. A few things, such as the gym and probably do with a bit of an update/clean but it was the end of the season and there were very few people to use it. The TV was good for English speakers, should you want news or movies. The hair dryer and mirror were outside of the shower and toilet area, allowing 2 people to get ready much more quickly. We had room 202, which also had a decent size mini fridge and nice balcony area. Plug sockets were also compatible with British plugs. Excellent news for us, as we had already lost one adapter. Overall, this place exceeded expectations.

Modern rooms, stylish decor, funky showers, quality linens, comfortable king size bed and great views. Great pool, comfortable lounge chairs and beautiful gardens. A beautiful ocean front property with lots of options for sun beds by the pool or in the garden under the shade of the palm trees and views of the ocean. The staff were outstanding and very accommodating.

Lovely hotel, great service
This is a brilliant place to unwind and explore this part of Sri Lanka. Great service from a friendly staff and wonderful food, especially the breakfasts. The beach below hotel is not great but the pool is good, and there are some good beaches nearby. This hotel would suit someone after something quiet and low-key.

An excellent boutique hotel ideal for couples
My wife and I spent 4 days in the excellent R Degrees in Ambalangoda on full board basis recently. We were greeted by Mr Perera (the General Manager) and his front office team on arrival and check in was a breeze. R Degrees is a small boutique hotel (c.10 rooms) and you get a very personalized service. For example, Mr Perera made sure that our lunch and dinner menu was different for each day of our stay. Our room (the beach facing suite with a balcony) was very spacious and came with a large LED TV/satellite channels, a BOSE wireless speaker, separate shower room, jacuzzi bath and a separate WC. The food was good and restaurant/catering team was professional. A special mention goes to the brilliant Mr SUDATH who waited on us during our stay. The hotel grounds (excluding the public beach) were very well kept. A big thank you to Mr Perera and his team for making our stay comfortable and enjoyable!!!

Service at it´s best
R Degrees was our last stop before flying home. It was a great destination for a couple of relaxed last days with just sea, pool and reading a book. The service was far beyond everything we experienced in Sri Lanka. The hotel manager did everything in his power to make our stay great.
