What a wonderful way to spend the last couple of days of our Sri Lankan holiday. Worth the drive from Jaffna. Beautiful beachfront room of generous proportions, lovely fluffy towels and relaxing rain shower in the bathroom. Huge selection at breakfast time, one of the best we have had so far. The pool area is fantastic, and we spent a lazy day just relaxing and swimming. Would recommend this resort.

Stayed in this hotel while being on a business trip. It is a very nice place in front of the beach. Nice rooms,big swimming pool and good restaurant. The staff is very helpfull and dedicated. Good place for family vacation

Great choice if you absolutely love the sea. Each room has access to the beach directly. There is a big swimming pool too. The sea food is to die for. You can taste the sea in the food. The breakfast spread is good too. Yummy hot appams made live. They have an excellent spa too that is not too expensive.

Awesome hotel ideally situated in front of the sea allowing you to see the sunrise. Big pool in addition. Good customer service as well. Restaurant : very nice buffet with a lot of choice Room : we had a room close to pool : clean and spacious.

Location is very accessible and easy to reach. Amenities and facilities are top notch. I have taken beach villas / bungalows which is on the beach area and its mesmerizing. The rooms are not so spacious but good and you will not have any complaint. The staffs are warm and friendly. The overall environment and atmosphere created by hotel management with the swing and chairs on beach side with nice decorations with lights and all, are so beautiful and pleasing and if you are going as couple then be ready for a beautiful romantic encounter that night as the beauty of the place will make you such romantic. The morning sunrise is must one to experience if you are there in hotel. Food is amazing and one you can get in the crab is super delicious except only the fact that you should expect to have little crab meat if you order for crab. overall, this is the best ever stay i had in entire srilanka trip.

This is a terrible hotel if you want to get some sleep. Bed is hard as a rock. But worse is there is someone playing an electric violin at very high decibels at 10 pm. I called to complain and the front desk said he doesn't stop until 11 pm. And this is a weeknight. Plus rooms are small and unimpressive. I would not recommend anyone stay here ever.

Without doubt one of the favorite hotels I stayed during my life time! Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the staff and the Assistant Front Office Manager, Mr. Mahendra. The staff was extremely friendly, the restaurant very flexible (appreciate this!). The scenery was very beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. Food was beyond good and great value for money and service in both places attentive and efficient. Room itself was well equipped and comfortable. I could go on but suffice it to say I was very pleased with my stay, and although short and sweet this time, I hope to be back for a longer visit in the future. Note, this is not a 4/5-star hotel or so, but the atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to me. All respect for the Assistant Front Office Manager who does a great job here; a true sample of excellent hospitality!

We stayed here 3 nights in a deluxe beach bungalow. Perfection! Walk straight on to the beach from your own veranda Which had chairs small table and a day bed! Room was large and airy and very clean, the buffet break fast had everything you could want. Try the Sri Lankan Hoppers made fresh for you. Eggs any way, only let down was you had to pay for fresh fruit juice they only had cordial which we found strange. Everything else was top notch. We had deserts there after eating out of the hotel. Deserts were good so would expect the rest of the nigh meals were too. Lots of restaurants along the beach and down the road to the hotel This hotel is one we won't forget

Very nice hotel. The rooms were nice and clean, the location on the beach is beautiful, the pool is great. The food at the restaurant was great with a wide selection. But best of all the staff was very helpfull and kind. We loved it

We booked this hotel for our daughters birthday weekend in June. Check in took sometime and the room we were given did not have a room service menu. Sine we checked in after lunch time our daughter wanted some food and we called 4 times to the front desk and asked for a room service menu which hey told us to look for in the room and someone on the line was really rude and asked me if I know what the room service book looks like to identify it......We have stayed at many Cinnamon resorts around the country and this is by far the worst experience we have had so far. It was very disappointing that we wasted our 2 nights at this hotel.the staff was also quite rude and unfriendly.
