the hotel is very getting old. A renovation would be urgently necessary! Service staff perpetrates his work rather listless and indifferent (without tips is nothing at all ). Food was good. Spa offer professional but very expensive! Beach partly very dirty. For children and older people, the sea too dangerous. On a board at the beach will special stressed, that this beach section is dangerous, the red flag depends on! My husband and I have beach vacation …  read hotel review

    The hotel is located at the end of a promontory overlooking the flusslagune and the sea. No other hotel is in the immediate vicinity, and there is no traffic or noise. Occasionally a train departs on the opposite side of the lagoon, and we do not in any way disturbing. With the tuc tuc left it for a bit of money everywhere. Outside of the hotel are a few small stores, but in about 2 kilometer away from the hustle and bustle, and plenty of shopping are. Nearby is a supermarket are, in which the prices for both locals as well as tourists are equal.

    All rooms are very modern, fashionable and with its own air conditioning and ceiling fan. The room has about 20-25 square meter. The bed was about 1.60 m wide and with plenty of pillows. The bathroom and the big shower, ground level, and with rainfall showerhead. There is also a built-in closet with a light, chest of drawers, work desk, a large tv, hair dryer, free safe, kettle (instant coffee, tea) and for a fee, a telephone. Our terrace had 20 square meter and garden furniture. The room was cleaned every day.

    The whole hotel staff was very nice and courteous. They spoke english, sometimes even some german. The room cleaning was spotless and with a little tip to the room service you can get an even more beautiful decoration of the beds with figures and flowers. Complaints or wishes are immediately accepted and implemented. If the food, because from excursions not can be used, it is possible at any time a lunch package to provide it.

    The hotel has no entertainment, disco or kids club. table tennis, billiards, kayak, board games (mill, lady, chess), water polo and fitness center with a treadmill, stationary bike, and stair machines are available. The hotel also has its own library with books in various languages and a private spa. The pool is always warm, as well as the sea. The beach chairs were in sufficient number (early in the morning you have the best selection). An employee of the hotel, distributed mats (for the beach chairs) and the hotels own towels. In addition it helps the aligning rollbaren beach chairs and at the opening of the sun umbrellas. At the pool there were 3 wasserfallduschen. On the beach there is no shade, the sand is very hot and the waves are high. The current not to be underestimated, so the red flag. With a little caution, but of the waves float. Because the beach was public, scrimmage there many beachboys the excursion possibilities and trips offer. They can under circumstances strongly a friend.

    Large buffet is served in the 1st floor, 3 times a day, the air-conditioned restaurant. There is plenty of choice of: local dishes with rice, curry, fish, often also fresh, salads, dessertkreationen and also european dishes such as noodles or pizza. There is at each dish a sign with the appropriate name. The food was very delicious. In the restaurant it was always clean and empty eaten plates immediately collected. We tipped not here, but we had never the feeling that these normal or required. In the ground floor there is an à-la-carte-restaurant, but we had never visited.

A beautiful hotel, tastefully decorated, and very clean. The staff was very friendly and fulfilled our request for possible immediately. The beach is clean but the sea is not very badefreundlich as the sea very wild and the waves unshattered on the beach shell. The buffet in the morning and evening are very varied and there was something for every taste. Overall, a highly recommended hotel! read hotel review

After our trip in the country we experienced Avani hotel beautiful relaxing and enjoyable days with a sensational new year's eve party. Could not have been better and the hotel is highly recommendable for those seeking peace without children. The service, the cleanliness and the food were very good. The sea is wild and rough with high waves, the partly against the rocks of individual ramparts break. Long lonely beach walks were possible, but because of the sloping beach also strenuous. But open other wonderful possibilities with the friendly locals in contact or the fishermen in the einhohlen your networks ... to watch. Contrary to some opinions on the net, seemed the pool is not too small. Daily fresh large pool towels comfortable cushions on beautiful wooden beach chairs. Enough pool chairs in the sun or shade available. Romantic candelight dinner at the beach for lovers with fire, torches, hussen etc. Here, every wish was fulfilled. All inclusive was worth it, both from the food and the drinks was. Thoroughly friendly, lovely staff. Guests from all countries. Many from the german-speaking countries, but also different Europa and Russia. read hotel review

    If you want a extensive entertainment program with evening shows, is wrong in this hotel. In the evening there was a different music program ( guitar music, saxofonmusik, small bands with singing), either in the bar area or within the pool range with beach views and in. Ocean. During the day there is sometimes a sports entertainer, who tried beachvolleyball-ball, water polo or other activities to offer, but often due to the tourist structure and number of participants cannot carry out. Pool table in the bar area for free. A fitness room was available, but because of the quote (1 times treadmill, 1 times stepper, 1 times ergometer) not earn this designation. Beach chairs and umbrellas were always sufficiently available, also to excursions could the pool boys always a place to offer. Towels and mats were the pool boys immediately provided. Mats were with our stay completely renewed, the beach chairs have enough comfort for an extensive sunbathing. The pool area consists of a small children's pool and a larger pool, in addition to a small increase in 2 water are available. The pool is about 1.30 meter deep. During our stay there was always enough space for swimming and fun in the pool. At the beach there were no beach chairs, we have daily bathed in the sea (water temperature about 28 degrees), this is at their own risk, a supervision is not available and the indian ocean at several days, a strong current in the beach area.

Railway station, bus stops about 20 minutes walk away, Tuk-tuk are available at the hotel entrance ready, with tours will it be collected directly at the hotel.

The view from the balcony on the ocean is a joy. The rooms feature a large bathroom with shower (rain shower), toilet and sink with sufficient storage space, a room with a large double bed with mattress, the other room had a double bed with 2 mattresses.

    The hotel has a buffet restaurant, an à la carte restaurant and at the days over a bar with food. All ' guests have free access to the buffet restaurant to use (breakfast, lunch and dinner), every day there was a different motto, with european food as well as many local dishes. The buffet was rather often refilled, than beginning of large quantities available, thereby there were occasionally to bottlenecks (especially the salad buffet), but they were taken care of immediately, if one of the many cooks spoken. The offer of dishes was extensive and varied, local food should definitely be tried (very spicy). Wine was allowed to dance along with all ' just for lunch and dinner free of charge to be ordered, in the bar area or on the pool only against payment. Christmas and Sylvester there were galabüfetts, in which one could not try everything. The staff in the restaurant are small tips or other benefits (chocolate,...).

A chic hotel for couples (without children), quiet, and a bit off the beaten track but ideal for relaxation. The rooms were inviting and the room boy was always beautifully decorated with flowers. The pool is not very big, but there were enough beach chairs on the extensive grounds. The waves in the sea are partly wild, the sand reddish and a bit coarse, but it was but about 1 kilometer people empty idyll. A superior room with a view of the sea is recommendable, beautiful sunsets and waves from the balcony is certainly better than the noise from the ... city (train, cars and the prayers calls from the mosque). Food was good, but little variety. Local curries with bones and hot, but we enjoyed it. Festbüfett at christmas was very good, varied and beautifully presented. We only had half board, which we but completely enough for us. Drinks for the day when we food city (main road turn left, about 1 kilometer on foot) with the Tuk-tuk in/out privileges. At the beach exit vatch the beachboys in the shade and want to sell trips. They leave a but after a few days and clear words in silence. Other travelers reported but also good excursions with them.

We have been going for 4 years in this hotel and it is really nice renovated. The lobby and the rooms have a great asian style. Wi-fi, there were everywhere something is really not a matter of course in Sri Lanka. There were a lot of british and german and dutch guests in the hotel. Russians no! The cleanliness is fantastic. It is cleaned mornings and evenings and the room boys make a very creative job in the room always great decorated had. read hotel review

    With the tuk tuk one is fast in the city kalutara. Otherwise, it is very out of the way but for those seeking peace is just the ticket. Shopping possibilities such as a supermarket ( apeco ) are reachable on foot.

    Unfortunately, the fitness centre just renovated. The tennis court was also not more. Unfortunately, the pool was too small for all the people. The animation is super. It is water polo, Volleyball and yoga. The temporary gym in the former office does not go at all!

    The service in this hotel is super. At the reception you receive a warm welcome and the guest carer manager about everything in a super english taken care of. A little german was also spoken. The room cleaning was excellent as already described. The whole staff is very friendly and accommodating. There is in the whole hotel a positive atmosphere which the personal care of the guests is concerned. The pool boys ( kahlua and nilahn and suresh ) do a great job. Always friendly and helpful.

    The chef was very good. One of the best food in Sri Lanka and we were already in many hotels. Always fresh and varied. The singhalesische food tasted very good.

We had 10 days with half board, superior room( view of the sea) on the Internet. The arrival by Qatar Airways and stopover in Doha was actually relatively relaxed. The transfer from the airport to the hotel against was after flight relatively long-drawn-out and strenuous. However, it is at the chaotic transport and street conditions on Sri Lanka. Tourist in Galle or bentota Hawk can enjoy even longer drive set. Also trips are inland (Kandy) somewhat longer. Apart from that our hotel was really nice and differed not really in a State to which other vacations. The rooms was really ... beautifully equipped and big enough, practically and equipped. From climate to beautiful bathroom everything available. Rooms without superior could have been a windowledge type balcony to inner courtyard have, where however but also the hallways are and guests pass. But apart from that even with us everything is great regarding hotel and room, area. During our visit the hotel looked not really very busy, which we felt as very entspannendd found. The guest structure was about age and nationalities very homogeneous. The described Russenproblem joined us on. There is however no credit/cash machine in the hotel. Therefore either Travelers checks, or as we just a ATM (ATM and withdraw money. (Exchange rate currently about: 1 euro = 150 rupees) read hotel review

    the beach was beautiful but just a bit coarse. It is even no coral sand like the Maldives or the Caribbean. The sand was pleasant and the beach was by angespültem unrat cleaned. The complex is located at the end of a barely so-called Headland and is therefore pleasant by water and not only a fence deferred. The transition to the city kalutara is flowing and you can for converted 2-4 euros fast times with a Tuk-Tuk in the city. But it is a city, as you in an Asian 'developing country' presents. Hectic, Exhaust, Verkehrskrieg and only a few Cultural highlights between Wellbleckständen, Tuk Tuk-parking spaces and being astonished Trinkgeldbettlern. Well... If you know and so not a problem has, then one is not surprised and have no safe in the town and this and the watch. Cultural highlights one finds then rather one of the offered excursions, the you definitely a the Touristikanbieter should do, since it otherwise really quick a promotional trip can sometimes degenerate and one in poor German a told.

    our room was as booked a superior on the first floor with a view of the sea. The room was really big enough and technically equipped. The bath was also one of the better so far. Balcony was also with it. Safe, cleanliness, TV, minibar, coffee, water, tea... And always beautifully clean. The bed was a supreme King and really top...

    At the service there was not really something to complain about. German it is almost not at all spoken, but on it you should just set. The rooms were absolutely immaculate cleaned and sometimes there was a small surprise in the crib...

    the animation team seemed rather bored and was very unobtrusive. We are not friends great entertainment and that's why this was not a problem. Apart from that one could volleyball, darts and a lot other play. Certain Wassergeräte you can borrow. The beach is absolutely okay and starts right after Hotelzaun. There is however strong waves, why not in the water dare. Snorkeling this is not possible, but with a small Bodyboard you have fun in the waves. The pool was bigger than the picture and because of our crowd absolutely appropriate and nice. There were couches also sufficient. The annoying Belegungswahnsinn is bypassed, by the pool boys simply towels and cushions upon request was given out. At the beach there is always a dozen beach boys, the however after the first contact completely harmless and discrete remained. With a we sometimes also with the small trains the Städtchn dangers. Apart from that there is access to the internet in the library and a small shop.
