We was at Dickwella Resort with my family in February 2014. We are from Switzerland and this is our first trip to Sri Lanka. We were welcomed warmly by the hotel staff and a comfortable room was reserved for us. The room service staff was friendly and efficient. The buffet layout was mouth watering with a variety of choices given to be choose from. We enjoyed the salad bar which gave a healthy variety of salads to suit everybody. During our stay the buffet meal items changed frequently which gave us a fresh choice every day. During the breakfast times ... the staff member who was man handling the egg station was friendly and obliging to our needs. He did a good job in creating some lovely omelettes. We enjoyed the local fruits and it was a refreshing change from the every day fruits we consume. But the restaurant needs to be improved with proper furniture, deco etc will improve the overall image of the place. Overall it was a lovely stay with my family and we look forward visiting Dickwella Resort soon. read hotel review

Very nice, large, clean rooms with a sea view. The room was thoroughly cleaned every day. wi-fi was free. We had full board plus, which was very recommendable. Beach towels and cushions were free (different described by the travel agency). Guest structure: all age groups were represented. Very many guests from the Ukraine and Russia. read hotel review

    We had full board plus. Here was a drinks are free, also beer 0.66 and wine. Very large selection of food, very attractive than buffet presented. Lunch from and to a la carte. There was at every meal both european cuisine as well as local cuisine. The hotness of the meals was not always specified. The quality of the food was very high. There was also a station, on which dishes were freshly prepared.

    Animation and maintenance were hardly available. For dinner there was mostly live music, from table to table was. The quality was not especially. The rather disturbed. Very nice pool with lounge chairs. The spots in the shade were a bit tight. At the beach there was no real beach chairs, but plastic ones, the preformed were, therefore not adjustable. These were not particularly comfortable. Could however also directly on the own terrace be taken or any other place in the shade.

Great relaxing holiday in a beautiful hotel The hotel is located in a nice quiet location with beautiful view on the sea. The staff is friendly and accommodating, without being intrusive. The leisure offer is perhaps not as large as in other hotels, but there were also right in the hotel a diving centre where you can do a lot. Different one can book trips from the hotel (but not cheap). Otherwise we felt some of the sights in the vicinity with the Tuk-tuk viewed. The only drawback were the many russians, not even necessary to greet the and no ... word english (or do not want, though there english spoken). Since these however anyway only on the pool, it didn't matter to us. In the morning and in the evening at the buffet has lost everything was wonderful, there was no rush or snakes (one must also not always equal to the first and there were enough to eat). in the surroundings there are not so many restaurants, bars and shops, there is not the typical tourist dickwella, but one has its peace and a supermarket and other little shops are equipped with the Tuk-tuk within easy reach. In the vicinity of the hotel there were small bars at the beach where you can eat great fish. All in all, you can really recommend this hotel. read hotel review

The hotel was the right choice because we rest and relaxation were looking for. It is really a bit outdated however the location simply top, the beach as from the travel catalog, the staff friendly. But there was always to moan, us was noticed that only a few german speaking tourists on the complex to find, but french and russian more... A shame. Well, we still enjoyed the great excursions read hotel review
