At night beautiful, but on the day rather average! Large spacious hotel, wi-fi worked great, cleanliness was okay, guest structure all-inclusive! Accordingly the guests, you also gladly times in bathing suits to the dinner shows, very many russian-speaking guests, accordingly, the consumption of alcohol and the table manners...

    There are two pools, a smaller pool at the front desk and a larger one with a children's pool. Both pools have a bar, but only with the larger pool usually someone there. The pools were very cloudy. A pool was apparently while we were there cleaned or changed the water, as it suddenly totally clean and clear was. Showers, couches and editions were there with two pools and on the beach. Umbrellas each day are redistributed. The beach is wonderful, only the water you can not always, since the the waves is very strong.

  • Service
    4.0

    The staff were always friendly, the foreign language skills was ok, english was mostly spoken, partly was also german understood. We were satisfied with the room cleaning, it gave to each day new towels and also the two cockroaches, which had visited, have been removed. Drinks were also than all-inclusive guest only with an indication of the room number and signature. If one evening in the restaurant not served and then to the bar at the reception was one could only wait, until all guests paying your cocktails and then only served, this is very nervit, as all-inclusive guest already before for his drinks paid. The large glasses were then for the cocktails and you got the Cola partly a 0.1 litre sektglas and had then three times instead and sign to 0.3 liter to come.

  • Room
    4.0

    The rooms are with a double bed and a seating area, towel rack and luggage rack nice and big. A balcony or terrace, each room is equipped with a seating area. wlan, telephone (which we unfortunately not worked well and also after complaint not was changed), mini bar, kettle, closet, safe and tv (didn't work) were available. The only negative was, that we had two cockroaches in the room, which in Sri Lanka flies and so about 5 centimeter large. There were no measures against mosquitos/flies met, these we were from a 3 star hotel in kalutara used. The bathroom was cramped, but a large shower, a hair dryer was also available. We were satisfied with the room cleaning, there was usually daily two small 20 millilitre shampoos.

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is right on the beach, the beach chairs are available on the beautiful gardens of the hotel. Distance to the airport is on the highway about 2.5 hours, we are return with a private transfer with the risks. Some other guests have said, that there is a coastal road, if you other hotels and the ride takes about 4 hours. With the {ent_transport_19852} the next town koggala for shopping, diving etc. in about 10 minutes for about 3 Euro per ride.

    There is a restaurant, where all food instead. An à-la-carte-restaurant there was also, this costs however. Quality of the food was good, it was always quickly refilled and it was clean in the restaurant. There were always curry and rice and otherwise salad and international cuisine, partly theme nights. There are beverages as all-inclusive. In addition, you have to but for the service were, what the drinks and refilled also not necessarily. It came a little more than you would had overlooked, since one for the drinks already had paid.

Stay away from Long Beach Resort. We can't understand how FTI such a dirty unfriendly hotel in the program can take. Staff incompetent, unfriendly one is from the first day kidded greetings to mr, samantha. Food is monotonous hardly a change. Waiters are with the simplest tasks overwhelmed for drinks you had to wait forever (never enough cutlery and everything always dirty) as all-inclusive customer is man like man 3 - ter class. Only paying customers from Russia are preferentially treated. Rooms are worn furniture is outdated musty smell and dirty. Beach is beautiful, not enough beach chairs for all ... - the sea was because of the high waves unsuitable for swimming (lethal) the pools are still dirty _während you can swim, chlorine purely tilted - just disaster stay away from Long Beach Resort this was the worst in 20 years experienced. read hotel review

The hotel is actually ok. A little renovation. But it is at all corners deleted, repaired, and, and, and. Very friendly staff, very good food (although not very varied) and a fantastic location on the most beautiful beach of sri lanka. If it weren't for the excess of russians and europeans would be! They can't behave. This is again operated, no matter where you are going on holiday. We have tried, which from the way to go we could use the two other hotels on the beach with use: koggala beach and club koggala. Hotel is a bit off the ... beaten track, but with Tuk-tuk that takes you everywhere at reasonable prices. We booked our excursions through ' chammy' from Germany booked, because of the good references! And we absolutely not disappointed. Organisation was perfect! We can 100% further recommend: www. Chammy. De. read hotel review

    Transfer to the hotel, the motorway takes 3 hours. In front of the hotel there is little. If you walk out of the hotel the left after about 1 kilometer some small shops. Right was a restaurant and further banks and kiosk.

  • Gastronomy
    3.0

    Food is average, starved nobody. Drinks are overpriced. A half beer costs 440 Rupees. Dinner is offered from half past 8a half 10 we went however only at around half nine, if the russians/ukrainians (95%) their büfettschlacht behind itself had.

  • Sport & Leisure

    Pool was initially so dirty, the floor not looked, then he was even cleaned. Beach chairs were scarce. Little shade. In the evening is not happening, selbstunterhaltung is asked.

  • Room
    3.0

    Room sufficient with a safety box. Tv with only one german program (Deutsche Welle). Bathroom also adequate, smells but always musty, because the shower no syphon has. Cleanliness after local - standard. Ground floor is best, as you have the change to find a beach chair.

  • Service
    3.0

    Friendliness is up to a degree but if you want something or something rejects, it spreads. We were firstly, a room that was not cleaned, beds were stained etc. for us unacceptable, but it is still acceptable.

I recommend immediately upon arrival a small amount of money (about 2 Euro per day) in small bills to change. This opens the heart of the very friendly staff. Then you need not's further to take care of it. Whether room boy, beach boy, the waiters and the cooks serves the needs of the primary goal.! The beach is fantastic, fine sand, very wide and huge in the length, i still haven't better experienced. Caution is at high waves was offered, we had 2.5-3 meters high waves. This was according to the locals very rare for the january. ... The lifeguards but leaving (2 young russians have personal experience)! read hotel review

He speaks english and is open for all routes recommended. The hotel has a very good location for tours. %singlelinebreak % The beach is huge. The waves can be a hard, for children and poor swimmers not suitable (strong undercurrent on some days) %singlelinebreak % Food in the hotel is very good. There is also delicious sharp Sri Lanka fare. %singlelinebreak % The weather in december about 28-30° at high humidity. %singlelinebreak % ... Rain gave it 3 time 1 hour in the late afternoon. ( but it was still warm) so no problem. Food and drink outside of the hotel is very good and cheap. 70% the guests are russians but good behavior. No besäufnisse and from the hotel was not destroyed.

You have to keep in mind, that the hotel 4 auto-hour from the airport is, in accordance with early, you also before the return flight picked up! The room with sea view had a fantastic view. The sea was pleasantly warm, but it was on no day of our stay due to the part about 2 metres high waves suitable for swimming. You can stop in the spray ordentlich'durchwaschen' - finished. The food was to our taste great. One had constantly the choice between tasty singhalesischer kitchen or the, which we found from home - so something for everyone. The ... excursions you better not at the respective tour operators - hopelessly overpriced. After galle (provincial capital), for example, you drove for about 7 cents 30 minutes away by train. For other excursions, no matter how far, one speaks at the best with the tuck tuckfahrern, until you have a good offer will take place. Many not only speak english, we had a found, the spoke fluent german. We have for example a eldest neded really south with all the attractions that you can visit, for a total of 40 Euro made. One you should consider when the lingyistic account - the hotel is fixed in russian hand, since you will already times by the roomboy addressed in russian, until the easier, that the world but is somewhat larger. read hotel review

A beautiful stay in a very nice hotel. The size of the house and the number of about 700 guests fell through the construction of the building, the maximum three floors, not bad. Impressive were the vicinity and the cleanliness of the beach and the beautiful garden. All three big, the hotel restaurants had a very good service and the food was good.

We actually wanted to not such a long flight to take us, but we didn't regret it. The staff is very friendly and the rooms were always clean. The food was varied, but also very much sharp but since you quickly get used to it has always tasted. The best thing was the beach, one comes from the hotel and is because, cleaner and broad and hardly any people. When bathing one must however on the strong undercurrent eighth. We've also made several tours, whereas us beachboy Alex (he lacks a finger) very helpful for me. Its prices are ok ... one can trust and definitely recommend it. We have also his family met, he is a good friend defendendo. All in all a very nice holiday. The only drawback were the many russians and their behavior before all the food. One cannot have just everything. read hotel review
