8/10 Very good

Great beach front location, with adequate facilities. Some areas "tired" and in need of updating. Pool needs cleaning around the edges. Staff attentive and very friendly

Game Over
It is clear they are feeling the pinch from the new Marriott next door, but rather than hold the highest standards for a unique stay, things look in mild despair. The restaurant was abandoned minus one guy behind the bar on the floor. Buffet setup was half thrown around only to find out they have stopped the buffet due to low occupancy - so why not clean it up??? The front desk never answered the phone even though there was no business. & when I asked for a late check out they were more concerned with my having bought the reservation through hotels.com rather than the hotel is ENTIRELY vacant. Why rush me out when they could go out of their way to deliver superb hospitality?

Lovely location and great staff. Little disappointed that I had to pay extra for an extra bed when room was booked for 2 adults and 1 child aged 11.

Great first stop in Sri Lanka
The resort is literally on a fairly quiet stretch of beach and board rental and surf lessons were cheap. Spa is great and rooms clean and comfortable.

10/10 Exceptional

A small resort in an ideal location
We spent 5 wonderful days here and have nothing but praise for the resort, the staff and the value for money ratio. Within walking distance of Weligama and a short Tuk-tuk ride from Marissa, you are far enough out of but close enough to the hustle and bustle. Situated on the beach is perfect for decent rest and relaxation.

Ok hotel but
Hotel has a reasonable location at the beach, the staff are polite and nice but the wifi has never worked during our stay and the staff of the SPA did not show up for work during two consecutive days...Not recommended. There are much better alternatives in Mirissa.
