Like the title says, it’s a 5-star property. The hotel grounds are amazing with direct access to the beach. The buffet breakfast is large and varied with an omelette, pancake, and waffle station. The staff are friendly and helpful. I’m afraid that’s where the 5-star rating ends. The quality of the rooms are definitely 3-star. The locking mechanism on the room doors make it so you have to pull the door in hard to ensure it’s closed. This means you hear lots of slamming throughout the day. In the bathroom you have old frayed towels and mold in the shower grout. The beds are moderately comfortable. The air-con in my room was only warm to cool. The thermostat never got below 23 although I turned it to 20. There’s an empty fridge in the room; no minibar. I spent two nights at the hotel and ate at Charters bar the first evening. The food was completely tasteless. Afterwards, I had lunch and dinner outside of the hotel. Try Rana seafood or Wunder bar I would not recommend this hotel. There are many other accommodations on the beach for half the price.

gorgous room. Fabulous pool and ocean access and view. service and as outstanding from the minute i arrived I was treated like a vlued guest. Very short walk to Bentota train station.

Excellent attentive service! On a fantastic beach. Wonderful pool. Easy walk to Bentota train station and 5 min tuk tuk ride to Other station, this experience is why we love SRI Lanka.
