It's marketed as a five star property but it's not quite there. More like a good western standard four star property. I would recommend this property in Unawatuna. Pros: Good location (a little bit away from the noisy part of Unatuwana) , spacious rooms and decent food. "Cons": The level of house cleaning varied.

The property was lovely -.the staff are excellent at customer service. The beach is very small and it’s mainly a rocky peak in front of the hotel but it’s not far to walk to the main beach. The food is very good snd you felt nothing was too much trouble. The fact it has a gym was a winner for me- some new equipment and stronger air con would make this even better

This is a very nice hotel, with two beautiful pools. Our room was quite spacious, with plenty of room for luggage and moving around. The bathroom is also nicely sized, though we did have a good deal of lukewarm showers. Plenty of outlets in convenient locations. The balcony was a nice place to sit and relax. We stayed here 3 nights, and had breakfast here twice -- a good buffet with lots of options and eggs made to order. We also ordered food from the bar on 2 separate occasions -- service was the biggest downfall, as it took quite some time to: receive menus. have our orders taken, receive our food. (The hotel seemed understaffed, as the people working there always seemed busy. Perhaps this was due to it being the shoulder season?) The staff did seem very polite and eager to help (Chathura in particular is excellent and personable, good at what he does.) In any case, when the food did arrive, it was very good, expertly prepared. Drinks were also well-made. One of our biggest frustrations, however, was the inability to get beach towels. This was probably a fluke, one-off incident, but when we tried to get some in the lobby, we were told that the towel delivery from the laundry service was delayed. We ended up using our room towels (& couldn't even replace those, as those were delayed as well.) We finally received them the day before we left. This hotel is probably best for families, as we saw many extended families enjoying the facilities.

We really liked the location and the hotel is really nice. The pools are great and the shared areas are very nice. Our room was large and comfortable. The restaurant is great and the food was really tasty. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. There were a few things that wouldn't as good as we'd expect - - when it rained heavily, water came under our room's door. staff mopped it quickly but needed to be fixed. - The bathroom wasn't as clean as I would expect. - The tap in our bathroom was loose, and small tile on bathroom floor. - The towels weren't great and not always changed or replaced when they had been taken. Had to ask for fresh ones a couple of times. - Too much plastic - bottles of water for room and with meal, butter in individual plastic packets, packed lunch with cling-film on orange, banana and apples! Given how Sri Lanka seems to be struggling to cope with its plastic waste we would have liked to hotel to be bit more proactive with reducing theirs. Overall, we would defiantly stay here again, but it'd be great to see those few things improved.
