Very Disappointed!!
This hotel has a lot going for it but under current management it definitely won’t succeed. The manager just walks around, never actually doing anything & if asked something never really knew the answer It has a lovely looking bathroom but the water pressure is so bad it took almost an hour to half full the bath......then I gave up. They advertise a “mini bar” there’s NO mini bar, there is a small fridge & tea & coffee making facilities. Actually I don’t recall the restaurant being licensed either. The $6USD breakfast ( that you have to order on checkin) is a joke, 3 tiny chipolatas, 3 potato wedges, 2 small tomato slices, eggs didn’t even half full the plate. Did get toast & fruit but it’s an absolute rip off. The pool closes at 7pm, there is a beach opposite which you can swim at all day but at dark ( when it’s still 30 plus degrees) you can only look at the pool because it’s closed. The beach is right out the front of the hotel it’s a nice beach but there is a dirty, smelly patch of water on the sand ( drain?) that you have to walk past. There are sun loungers on the beach outside the hotel ( but aren’t operated by the hotel) so you have to pay to use them) a hotel in this price range should provide them. The internet is appalling, it took almost 3 hours on our arrival to get a connection & that kept dropping out. Our entire stay was a complete disappointment. After one night we walked 500m or so down the beach where we luckily found the “Madu Friendly Villa “

10/10 Exceptional

This hotel was perfectly located for our little family. Our pleasant room looked out over the swimming pool and across the dirt track to the beautiful beach at Dickwella. It was just a 1km walk from the stunning Hiriketiya beach where we spent much of our holiday learning to surf and chilling out. It's a short stroll into Dickwella and a little wander along the beach or through town brings you to the bustling Saturday market which we loved. The hotel staff were incredibly friendly - our 8-year-old loved them - every one of them made him feel like a VERY important guest. He also loved spotting ghekos and lizards in the hotel gardens, fruit bats at night and water monitor lizards on the beach. We went for room only, and found the hotel food was cheap and cheerful - we would have liked more authentic Sri Lankan options on the menu, but there is a wealth of amazing restaurants within walking distance in Hiriketiya. The hotel staff were happy to provide competitive rates for day trips and provide a driver at reasonable rates too. One slight downside is there was no bar on site, but again, the staff were so helpful and more than happy to nip up the road to buy in for us. Overall a brilliantly-located, small and friendly hotel with fantastic sea views and attentive staff.
