You have to the country be aware-if you're looking for comfort and nice decorated ambience sets, was no pleasure. Generous plant with bungalows and main hotel. Nice big pool, as well as a large sunbathing area with palm trees toward the sea. Reception and restaurant plain. Plant altogether worn, reonnovierungsbedürftig (some bungalows are currently again been set-no renewal visible, only repair work) and facilities altogether very old-partly uncomfortable …  read hotel review

We had a beautiful, quiet holiday, the hotel is already a bit older, but for a 3 star hotel very good. Other highlights include the waiter in the restaurant, who is always very friendly and accommodating. The food in the restaurant was always sufficient, well seasoned and very well presented. That the other reviews criticized dogs and cattle egret in the dining area are only due to the fact, that there were always tourists gives it great the animals at the table to feed. The pool area is good and the pool boys are very helpful. We were already 4 ... times in Sri Lanka in different resorts, here we come gladly again next year. Finally, i must say once again: if you want a 3 star hotel, you should not 5 stars expect. read hotel review

We had a 2 week holiday in this hotel. We would not be at the beginning 2 days on inlandsreise in other hotels, we would have probably at night no sleep found. Each night we had to pathetic hundegeheule (as the wolves) bear, bloody revierkämpfe of animals and begattungen with loud bark and fight (2 the female were randy). Always again rügten this problem and again and again it was remedy accepted, that the dogs at least at night from the property be removed, so that night's sleep is guaranteed. But nothing happened. A girl, which under us stayed, at ... night difficult one of the dogs biting. Then we requested another room on the beach or threatened departure. We stayed at the restaurant, and in barnähe is no sleep possible, as here (the 'feeding') the dogs. Also during the meals you had to the animals suffer not only in the bar, but also in the closed restaurant area have all animals entrance. Dogs, cats, large birds. It is disgusting. In the property there were 8 adults dogs, in addition, at present, more 7 juveniles through the staff raised. We do not want than tierfeindlich designate, no not at all, but there are now once hygienic borders, degrees in such countries. The animals are very neglected and sick. Wounds of the animals are not treated, blood-smeared, you can sit on the table and beg with large black eyes. Their skins have large holes and ausfallzeichen, shameful. If i animals have, i am responsible and must maintain and provide, but this condition does not go at all. The specifications of our organizer was the meals contain wine. This we received only after major complaints on 6. days. On the last days there were no more, with the statement, our organizers (show insland ) the bill the day before not yet settled. The management at this hotel in absolutely inadequate. You understand, laugh, say everything and nothing happens, the employees have no knowledge of alleged instructions. We have locally with a native a 3 - tages-trip agreed. This was wunderwunderschön. Thank you dear indi, you saved our vacation. The sea was always very high waves and a very strong lateral stream, absolutely unsuitable for small children. But there is also a pool. Those waves like, loved it, but we have strong adults men as the matches twirl see and 2 people are during our time locally drowned. We were much swimming, but with the highest respect for these waves. By the way were 30 °c water temperature ☺ We do not know however, if at any time of the year it is. The country, we will gladly come again, but the hotel, we can't recommend. read hotel review

The Hotel Villa Ocean View is a very nice and with 148 rooms quite well arranged area, the a bit older is, in which you but a great 'relax' among palm trees to spend can. Price-performance ratio is definitely correct. We love to stay there again. Here are some tips, right in the hotel. Hotel area: The facility is old, but very very green and despite minor flaws (for example at the pool) - very nice and well maintained. At the moment they renovated at some spots. The but you could also stayed in many older reviews read. It looked ... at the work in such a way, as if none of the parties to a real interest, ever to be ready. Animals in the area: There are great many mostly trusting animals in the area. Next to Frechen ravens, from the hand-guzzling mini storks nesting (cattle egret), chipmunks, dogs, puppies and cats there are flying foxes, small geckos and even a wild mob monkeys (langurs), often in the morning by the trees of the area hit. The hotel elephant Monika we are divided on. At least found girls the eli great and even against an intermediate payment on the haarigen animal five minutes ridden and could it also scrub. Tip: the staff is very fond of animals and went with all animals friendly. We had no problems (or said nothing) if the dogs at the food fed have. Wi-fi network in the hotel: In the hotel there were four free wi-fi networks, but not very stable. The most reliable network you will find in the lobby of the hotel, you got the password problem-free at the reception. The lobbynetz has a private password, the passwords of the other three networks are the same. The networks are vov lobby, vov -new wing, vov-cabana-1 and cabana 2. read hotel review

    Rooms and cleanliness: We stayed in the bungalows, very nice right on the ocean. The rooms were clean and functional, the beds were comfortable. New hand towels daily, but the bathroom in the near future be renovated. Tip 1: plug adapters you don't need, the german plugs in the outlets. But you have to at the putting in a small verrieglungsschalter above the plug unlock, for example with a ballpoint pen. Tip 2: unfortunately there is no coffee machine or kettle in the room. So if you wake up early and to the breakfast or snacks coffee or tea slurp would like, should a small travel kettle with you. Tip 3: hair dryer (if needed) is also even with you. Mosquitoes and other critters: Mosquitoes, there were quite a few. The closing we, that we little bites were and the animals also at night not buzz. However we at night always with Anti Brumm sprayed (really is and in Germany to buy). There is also in the evening a hotel boy past, next to 2 bottles of water a chemiekeule in the spray at hand. Except two half dead cockroaches, which we in the morning in the bathroom have found, was the threat of vermin quite clearly. Tip: if you every evening the chemiekeule in the room, you can decide for yourself. The hotel boy always ask for, whether he spray or not. I only always the feeling: what mosquitoes and cockroaches from doubletalk, can also not so super healthy with the sleep in the room.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    Dining/food/drinks: We had 'all inclusive' stay. Even, if you from time to time in one of the small restaurants around the corner to eat, one as' all-inclusive 'guest for the tiny difference between the' all inclusive 'price and' breakfast only ' price many benefits and always delicious food & drinks. Food: the food at the breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet was plentiful and there was something for everyone. The choice was quite well arranged, so if you want a culinary tour through the indonesian cuisine, he should choose a different hotel. The dishes repeated with the time, there was a lot of chicken and fish in different variations. On the duration is the buffet was a bit monotonous, for two weeks the choice was but ok. Drinks: at 'all-inclusive' you always till about 23 hours the possibility anchor beer (ok as long as the beer cold), water, Pepsi, 7 up, tonic, juices and mixed drinks with: Gin, Brandy, whisky, arak, red rum, white rum or Wodka (everything cheap brands, but drinkable) to order. There is still some more drinks (for example, malibu orange) and a variety of cocktails, between 450 and 1000 Rupees (circa 3-6 Euro) costs, but mostly also very good. Wine despite 'all in' to be paid extra (about 7 00 lkr) and didn't taste especially. Tip 1: arak relaxation on ice cream try with a Pepsi in separate, small glass of Tip 2: the sunset with a drink ' arak -Sun down 'enjoy (there are' all in ' free of charge). Annoying: for each drink (whether free of charge or not) must one the waiter a note sign. The supposed to serve, that the 'all inclusive' guests not as beverage service for the 'not all inclusive' guests are being abused. Russian: This cute asian man, which each year for 2-3 weeks on the continent unfoldings, were also in the complex to find. Mostly they were quite loud, drink a lot and had smaller deficit which the approach when the fill a commercial piled up with food from the buffet are concerned. The usually somewhat picky male specimen is often accompanied by a female, in large tuchbahnen gehüllten, female copy, the male in the waist measurement is at least equivalent, but often the weight of the male for a multiple matches. A few, selected male russians were - in the comparison to the standard russian male - but also with blutjungen female in the grounds of the hotel to see. This female were nice to look at and fell by a striking hrastovlje in the face (lips and eyes) and sparse clothes on. In general, but the whole tribe learned, through massive physical exertion a prominent place in the buffet queue to secure. Is it, in the twinkling with skillful movements the last hänchenkeulchen so precisely on the already about 2 kilogram heavy, overloaded plates placed. This will be in the greatest effort and without too much loss on the own table spent, on the already 5 other plates of the same size are. After further 3 self-started the essensritual at, the very exotic tooth. The meal of the russian citizen begun, that firstly the waiter snapped at is. The reason is immaterial - something is always. Next begins the actual food. Loud smacking and slurping a small quantity of every plate try. Here, meticulous attention, that at least 80% of the food on the plate remains, so that the waiters enough to clear has. Any russian, which respects itself, should also not forget, the anblaffen of endeavored waiter during the feeding at least 5 times to repeat. Important for good russian behavior: should definitely 2 drinks at the same time be ordered. The waiters 6 times has much more possibilities, about the quality of the food, the drinks, the hot coffee, or whatever... , to complain. Also here: the reason of complaint is actually no matter, they must only very loud and mutually incomprehensible way. Summary: unlike our last holidays in Egypt, where the russian barbarenhorden the buffet in the attack daily niederplaniert have, behaved the russians in the hotel area as the petting zoo. In the villa Ocean View there were about 60% russians, the, except for a few exceptions, our holiday happiness but not spoil things with thier.

    All the staff were super friendly and at any time accessible Tip Waiters, beach boy, guard and cleaning we talked with all about the same: about 10000 to 12000 Sri Lanka Rupees (lkr ) per month (6 days a week/10 hours a day). Sounds like a lot - but it is not. About was about 72 Euro monthly salary. Tip 1: the staff is very friendly, even without being tipped. We have tips but gladly and distributed. Usually we have 100 Rupees (about 60 cents) given, for class use already times 500 Rupees (€3,00 ). Large notes are available at the reception 100 Rupees notes be exchanged. Tip 2: individual cigarettes are gladly taken Tip 3:a few sweets for the kids (for example small Haribo sachets) charms kinderlachen out.

    Beach and pool: The beach was quite nice, clean and with palm trees equipped. However during our 2 weeks stay because of the strong waves a about 1 meters wide beach bit worn. Also at least 3 palms were undercut and stayed over night at the sea had disappeared. If anything here regarding strandbefestigung happens, is the beach end of 2014 down the drain. The pool areas in the pictures bigger, as they are. For a schwimmerchen or rumlümmeln in about 25 degrees warm swimming pool water is the pool okay. Tip 1: for a small tip, we had every morning the beach chairs at the beach from the pool boys reserved. Basically, but always enough beach chairs at the beach free, so you no longer the top places gets, but always place. Tip 2: the waves was to our travel time very rough. Also inexperienced swimmers should the waves and the current take care of. Entertainment in the hotel: Since we prefer the type: 'stand-in-the-bar and a stupid-run' and ' pan-fried at the beach-to-the-tan-to-the-shoes-fits' types are, we had with the animation in the hotel nothing on the hut. Two entertainment boys were during the day tried hard, the guests to so exciting actions such as Bocce, darts, water aerobics, Midget Golf or Volleyball to persuade. Then in the evenings it was a tv evening, a magic show, karaoke and a disco evening offered. Since we were not there, we can't say anything about it. Definitely was the two boys not pushy, which already means a lot.

    The hotel is located right on the steep sloping beach. By the rainy season in september was the sea very wild and the waves correspondingly high. We would have rather a gently sloping beach desired, but we didn't from swimming in the sea was held. There were enough beach chairs available and the palm trees on the beach offer enough shade. The beachboys are also every day on the beach, should not, however, more than to first palmenreihe. This means, if you're in the 2. series sets, one there also nice its peace and quiet. We have the presence of the beachboys never disturbing. Around the hotel is unfortunately not very much was offered, for those who love action and wants party, is here at the wrong address. For quiescentlooking for the hotel is ideal.

    There were daily animations such as aqua aerobics, darts, beach volleyball, and every evening different activities. For example there was a snake show, a magician or a disco. We have once the aqua-aerobics participated, which was really funny. Otherwise we had however no animation deals in use, but us every evening with the other 8 german at the pool bar and our own entertainment organized ☺

    The whole staff was very friendly and accommodating, many even german spoken. A rough handling of the dogs for me was not at all noticeable, on the contrary. After the food for 22 hours the dogs the leftovers from the staff, otherwise only in the trash would. We found that very positive. The dogs were also never disturbing, they often only the proximity to the people and oneself simply beside the chair to them. The pool boy were very friendly and were immediately with towels and mats run, as soon as they saw us. They also very on one or another arrack, the you secretly to the pool house is ☺

    The food was really good and various. Every day there were different theme evenings, for example thai, grill, chinese, italian, Sri Lanka. In addition there was always a chef on the terrace, the certain food freshly prepared. For the drinks you have to each time sign, this but we didn't particularly bother me. The waiters are very friendly and clear immediately empty plates away and constantly then, that everything is clean. Reductions must one with the coffee, as it was only nescafe is. However Sri Lanka well known for his tea, which i for the two weeks of coffee on tea transferred ☺

    As i said, the rooms are a bit dated. We found this not too bad, but the rooms were at least clean, which for us the most important. Every day the towels and bedding changed, in addition, evenings someone spray for the mosquitoes in the rooms. My tip: take a bungalow, the rooms here are fresher than in the main building. We booked directly with the check in after a bungalow was asked and this worked without problems.
