My conclusion for this hotel (after i comfort rooms show have): Bay definitely a comfort room! These are on a level you for a 3 star hotel expected or even a little better. The standard rooms are for three stars in Sri Lanka also good, but a german tourists only very partially happy. ; ) Otherwise there was about the hotel …  read hotel review

    The hotel is right on the beach, but not large can be used, since a reef davorliegt. 5 minutes to the right or to the left, however, the possibility for swimming or snorkeling. Shopping is right in front of the hotel was possible, larger supermarket, small local shops, cafes and restaurants. Desk etc. Directly in front of the hotel (with Tuk-tuk drivers) bookable. The transfer from the airport to the hotel takes approximately 3-4 hour

    The transfer from the airport to the hotel took 3.5 hours. By the newly built highway, this but reduce. The hotel is right on the beach. Left and right of it you had the opportunity to baden. The place hikkaduwa is very lively but still comfortable. Restaurants, supermarket and shops are located in the immediate vicinity. The main street is right behind the hotel, as at the other hotels on the coast. Bus, train and tuk-tuk are also in direct proximity.

The hotel has a manageable location. I think for sri lankan circumstances is the cleanness ok. In the hotel there were many young people. About 50% russian guests, but also many dutchmen, asians and on weekends also some local (was very interesting), but unfortunately not german. read hotel review

    We had a standard room and were content thereby. But there were also room in the lowest floor with a terrace and rooms with a direct view of the restaurant. The furniture was nice, dark wood and the mattresses were relatively hard.

    There were no activities. There were hardly any kids at the area. The pool and the garden area were in the morning and regularly cleaned. There were always enough beach chairs and enough shade. The cushions were quite thin, sometimes we got also 2 cushions!

  • Location

    The hotel is located directly on the sea. One has a wonderful view from the hotel and garden on the sea. To the right and on the left you can directly at the sea to the beautiful beaches are. Just towel from the hotel along. A relatively large supermarket is directly opposite the hotel. The bus stop is a few more meters away. The train station is within a few minutes to reach. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. We dared with the regular bus after galle to drive. It costs 35 Rupees and takes about 40 minutes. The bus ends in galle right office away at the bus station. Nearby you will find also a tsunami museum and 2 smaller lakes. As we had a tour, we only with a local leaders the actual village with its fruits, animals, and so on. Looked at. On sunday morning always with the station a worth seeing market.

    The staff was very friendly. Some spoke german, even our 'cleaner'. Our first room had a good location-direct view of the see -, but smelled very unpleasantly and was a little dingy, we were immediately a new room promised. We had however to the first night in the room, as we also only around 9:30 a. m. arrived at the hotel. Our 2. room was in the 2, floor and we had an even better view. , the bathroom had a window. The air conditioning was even, if we were not in the room. The cups were however only with a cloth wiped out. We have the cups then rather after use itself ausgwischt.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    The restaurant was after three sides to be desired, but with strong wind or rain (we were in september as) with plastic tarpaulins closed. The meals were very varied and tasteful. If the local cuisine tastes not so good, could also different potatoes and vegetables to choose. However, there were no real Cola, only a ' kik -Cola'. The soft drinks such as Cola, Sprite or soda costs 150 Rupees. A small bottle of water 50 Rupees. It was always swept and wiped the tables, the placemat material were only shook out and used several times. Many men in shorts, partly even with swimming trunks, for dinner.

    Airport approximately if you leave the highway drives about 2,5 hours. Shopping directly in front of the hotel but low quality products. Excursions are all far away, so that you only as 2-4 days are offered. Kandy told, is about each way 5 hours away, so 10 hours travel time and 2 hours look at. To stressful. Tuk tuk directly in front of the hotel. Beach is for swimming not convenient, as very strong waves there is. For surfers optimal. After galle dangers with the taxi and there it is still dirtier than in hikkaduwa

    Chairs should times looked so also the cushions. Beach not ideal for swimming, as strong waves. Entertainment not available. Pool was very warm and the hooks should be repaired, as all loose. Reef directly at the beach, to into the water to go, you have to approximately 200 meters to the left
