I want to share my experience on holidays in Sri Lanka. My husband and I had been planning the vacation on 01/11/2015 19/01/2015. We asked the travel agency in beforehand for the list of good 5 star hotels in the south-west of the island. There was hotel Blue Water Resorts & Spa 5 *, Wadduwa in this list from the host company EXOTIC HOLIDAYS INTERNATIONAL. And we have decided to choose it. We have expected to have a rest at the 5 stars hotel, but on arrival were very disappointed. The reception is whole shabby, there is dirty water in ... the pool, the restaurant is very simple furnished, it's very disgusting to sit on it because it's in spots all over; the food quality is on 3 star lever hotel. The hotel Blue Water Resorts & Spa 5 * in any case does not response the quality of five stars hotel,it's maximum 3 stars. I travel a lot and I know what I talk about. We planned to spend there nine days? But have spent only 5 and then changed the tickets and flew back home. We didn't get any refund for the remaining days in the hotel and for tickets exchange. This situation would not occur if the company EXOTIC HOLIDAYS INTERNATIONAL would provide tourists with true information about the level of hotel which they offer. The tourist has a right to know about the discrepancy of this hotel to the international standards. We are disappointed with EXOTIC HOLIDAYS INTERNATIONAL service and we do not recommend vacation in hotel The Blue Water Resorts & Spa 5 *, Wadduwa if you expect to have a rest in a five star hotel. read hotel review

Very pleasend staff, nice garden, but pool is ruined and should be immediatelly renovated. Kids are under a danger swimming in it, as tiles in the pool can fall and get hurt! one kid was taken to hospital after cutting his toe. Lack of first aid even to help him immiiatelly. Huge problem with the crowns in Sri Lanka but in this area of Wadduwa and in particullar this hotel is full of it. Beach is not safe for swimming during the monsoon. This is not a 5* hotel currently, so be aware. read hotel review

Nice hotel. Especially was constantly being cleaned everywhere. Very clean! If you are planning a day trip - {ent_person_20059} at the fence at the beach. Can good german. A very good man. Could only recommend him. With him a day trip to the south and a 2 - tagesausflag to kandy and's highlands made. Everything without stress. Very good! Across the street from the hotel the Ayurveda-doctor i can only praise. Is already 70 - but the experience of 3 generations. Swimming in the sea a bit difficult. Strong waves and current, but to splash around, the pool, A successful ... holiday! read hotel review
