    The location was great all be it a little too quiet at times. The hotel was well maintained and had a wonderful breakfast ...although found the other food (lunch and dinner) to not be as good so we spent our evenings dining across the road at Mallis , Trax and happy garden . Seafood great in Mallis and the authentic Sri lankan curry was great at happy garden also a third of the price than the hotel! Nirodha the sous chef was amazing , so friendly and helpful in explaining the dishes...we looked forward to our chats with him at breakfast. Another tip, dont exchange money at the hotel. The rate is poor in comparison and they were overly fussy about the condition of the notes. I went down the road and exchanged at a much better rate and all notes were accepted regardless of pen marks!???! We were lucky enough to be there over the Sri Lankan new year and the hotel put on various games and treats which we loved. The staff also got involved and was great to interact with everyone. Pin the eye on the elephant was a particular favourite although i wasnt close!! I did notice there were some vip guests that were being fawned over during this time which to us was a bit ridiculous as if you had faith in your hotel then you wouldnt feel the need to do this and offer extra things that the other guests didnt have...provided us a chuckle and entertainment to the happenings though. Overall it was a good experience ,the reception lady was always smiling and chatty and Chadia in des cafe to.

    The location and view is just awesome. Chef was kind and gracious enough. Men at restaurant were good. Though they too forget to get water despite being asked no of times. They just forget. Don’t know how? Apart from these everything was horrible. I would never ever recommend surf to anyone. No phone, no power points, need to remind no of times for each and everything. They not even extend greeting while we checking out. Not been given any feedback too. Failed in courtesy. Overall mine was not a pleasant experience. I would give just 1 star
