We are only at the 'quiet pool' defendendo, if we were in the hotel. It was really relaxing, only the first 2 days annoying the crow, you hear not really. Problems were immediately sorted out otherwise, service and cleanliness was super. Everything good :-) read hotel review

We were 2 weeks in this hotel and we can only further-recommend it. The hotel staff are all very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is really great, you always found something good to eat Animation is very nice and not pushy. Went on two excursions, once over Alltours and once over the much-quoted Harald booked.

We are a couple (43&46) in december. 13 to 2 time in the club Dolphin arrived and were very curious, because the hotel 6 months because of renovation was closed. It is still a comfortable hotel with very frdl. Staff. We thought our dream destination to have found. Unfortunately the leader responsible of the hotel (a german) partly from lack of equipment, partly from not understandable reasons decided everywhere rules. For example, the beach. Fenced off (circa 80 centimeter high) so that a passage must seek, at the too few chairs signs attached which a prescribed as you are in ... and this does, it is the actual bar just after outside shifted so that any smokers the otherwise completely open lobby not vollqualmen and thus the guests with rains in their room must, etc. It is very sad for us this backdrop! In a local very nice hotel have rules from good old Germany nothing to find. All in all still a very highly recommended hotel in which the staff don't mind the charm. J&m read hotel review

The hotel has double room with sea view, double room without sea view and bungalows everywhere on the property (partially with view of the beach). The double room with sea view are spacious and have a balcony or a terrace. The rooms are cleaned once a day, the room boys did their job really good. There are the weekend a lot of locals there, but also many germans, russians, french, english, dutch, so something of everything. read hotel review

    Our room was huge and recently renovated. The bed was huge (about 2.50 times 2.00). Millions of pillows on the bed, a sufficiently large tv, the bathroom was also spacious. All rooms have a balcony or a terrace.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    There were 2 small restaurants where one to noon can take little things to itself, a buffet restaurant, an à la carte restaurant (where you have to pay). The selection of the meals is varied, one always finds something. There are european food, but also local. Unfortunately the food could be warmer. The inklusivgetränkeauswahl is big, but you can other drinks, which you will have to pay. Unfortunately, the atmosphere in the buffet not very comfortable, feels a bit like a large mensasaal. You have to the staff would not automatically tip, only one was served, you also so, but of course you have a small attention in between.

  • Service
    5.0

    The staff is very friendly and courteous, even if you didn't tip (but not damage may). Understand all patch english, sometimes also german, is always on the employees at. The room cleaning was good, towels could be changed daily. Towels for the pool or the beach are with arrival on the room ready, could also be changed every day, but you need to be dirty towel from the pool/beach with room and his boy search, the then new towels, small point of minus for it. In other hotels is the problem better.

    The entertainment was very discreet, not annoying. There is a quiet pool, where no entertainment was, and a large pool, where regularly various activities will. There is a children's playground and a kids' club, but we didn't use it. At the pools there were enough beach chairs, one must in the morning no reserve. Initially hanging on the couches signs, that the reservation is forbidden by couches and the things after a certain period of time away (but were still reserved). Apparently there were some 'corrupt' and then a eye examined. Note but we were over the time taken, as some guests had complained about it. Umbrellas are on request set up, you should definitely make, but since the sun very much power has. As mentioned above, the beach was not kept clean, it is a lot of trash around it and no kümmerts, it's a pity. Showers are available at both pools available. Unfortunately the pools are not enough geclohrt, thus drink the many raben the pool water and it is floating a lot of small bugs in the pool. The only really annoying in the area are the vast quantities of ravens, really hard, steal food etc. As the hotel management should something companies.

    The beach lies directly before the hotel, but unfortunately very neglected, as it gemeindeigentum is, worries also no one from the hotel about, the beach is kept clean, which i personally very sad to find. It runs as a lot of staff in the hotel, so it should be possible, the beach to take care of it, if it was not the municipality does, to the well-being of the guests just. The surf was very strong, red flags are the whole time, although you can go in the water, but only at the margin remain, because of the current. To the airport there is depending upon traffic conditions 30-45 minutes. The hotel was located very remote, no shopping possibilities in the proximity (right shops, supermarket). To the next town it was about 5 kilometer. before the hotel one could however with a taxi or a tuk-tuk, but we didn't use it.

The staff is always friendly and helpful always had a smile. The plant is large pool landscape large only with the cleanliness lacking many pigeons and raben dirty and verscheisen the children's pool. From the lunch it wimmelt from ravens as many tourists you feed of which you should know if you get this problem never handle. Cocktails rather boring (not with the Karibik to compare) The room boys give themselves very much trouble know it but not better. German cleanliness you should not expect. right outside 3 small shops in 3. one finds leela very nice helpful german speaking ... woman there one gets cigarettes ayurvedaöle, massages clothes. Outside of the area, one was constantly occupied by irgendwechen tourenverkäufern approached the are cheaper than the tour operator but also with a lower standard. The 2 day trip from the tour operator was well worth the money but it felt like a kaffeefaht Herb garden ends in a store. Jewelry and tea factory as well. Country and people were very interesting and nice the impressions are very large Russians from january very many some could behave and a few give the familiar picture. Conduct zero. Food will after a week rather boring! Conclusion hotel area good, interesting country and people but the paradise for us. read hotel review

    The hotel is right on the beach, to the next shopping you have to 10 minutes walk, or a tuck tuck walkest, directly at the hotel are offered. Excursions we booked with our travel agent. You can also with Harald make, the after 3 days quite on the nerves. Swimming in the sea is not for timid guests.

The hotel is all in all a nice hotel with small mistakes. The staff is always helpful and friendly. All are very much forestalling. The food is plentiful and delicious. Was problematic in some evenings the service at the bar, the mostly is understaffed. The wine is basically not in the all-inclusive benefits included. The cleanliness was good, with small drawbacks. But they were always impeccably cared for, if you wish (but there were really minimum points). Great was the bungalow (mansion) in the first row at the beach. Here you should definitely in the evening with the great sunsets ... a camera ready. The pool area was clean. There were always enough beach chairs and umbrellas for everyone. Even, if all the beach chairs were occupied, the service took care of the problem immediately and immediately more loungers. The gym is adequate, though not extensive. Otherwise beach volleyball, water polo, aerobics, table tennis, Tennis and various smaller mirror-image moose are offered. A further sport offer but there was not. The entertainment was good, without pushy and annoying. It was a lot offered, but very decent. The sea is quite rough, from swimming because of the very strong current discouraged. Snorkelling, diving or surfing is not offered. For this you have to go further south or on the east coast. In the south the beach is optically also nice, since he is white and the sea crystal clear. This is because of the waves and the some shingly red sand on the west coast is not the case. Around the hotel there was actually hardly any shopping possibilities, you have to a Tuk-tuk or take the taxi to the next city. The desk, which we did were really nice. Next to the hotel, if you are at the quiet pool the outcome on the beach set, there is a small shop. Before it sits on your terrace leela. They organized next to the usual suppliers and the beach boys, the already on the beach try customers for their tours to a friend, also tours. Leela has 4 years Germany lived and therefore speaks fluent german. It runs on every personally and discusses desired tours individually. It takes account of the individual wishes. Moreover, the tour with other guests joined together, that means it's very private with her and in large groups. If you want, you can also with other together drive, but you can only as a couple with her and the driver of the tour. The costs for this are similar to the other tour operator. But you really should be aware, that many place about 100 kilometer away from the hotel (example bile, kandy). For these 100 kilometer in sri lanke 3.5-4 hour easy drive. Tours are therefore very early rise and quite strenuous, as you during the day then 8 hours in the bus to spend. Told us, that the rooms to the pool and the animationsstätte for the evening because of the music and the guests are very noisy. I would therefore to the bungalows rates. These are bigger, quiet and very nice lined up with a great view of the ocean and access to the beach (if you are in the first row is). All in all you can be at this hotel as a good mittelklassenhotel recommend it. read hotel review

Very large and spacious area, so that even when fully booked, as Sylvester, no feeling of narrow arises. Some other holiday-makers one sees 14 days not at all. Everything is very clean and nicely decorated, for example, two koi pools available. Many guests come from Germany, England and even the locals make time a weekend vacation in Dolphin. Shortly after christmas will then also a few russians and Poland. Often the locals the Dolphin, your wedding to celebrate, there one sees then beautifully dressed engaged couple and their guests with the fabulous.

Up to 10 different curry variants, partly prior to the guest prepared grill specialities and also the fries tasted amazingly good. A vegetarian diet is extremely varied possible. The drinks were served. Only the coffee drinkers must make reductions, because except for the breakfast, there were only nescafe. Everything is very clean.

    The front desk is always with at least three persons occupied and always helpful. But you have to, as everywhere in sri lnka, time, quickly it never, since the locals are very anxious, not to make mistakes. The 2. manager spoke excellent german, also some of the staff speak german. Our air conditioning was noises, was repaired directly, we had a cockroach in the room, was right away. Actually the plant is quite free from vermin, against that are sprayed, but after the sprühaktionen it could be, a weakened cockroach to see. With 300 employees are even less motivated therewithin, but prizipiell are all extremely friendly. A small tip should be compulsory, as everywhere in the gastronomy.

    Very large and spacious area, so that even when fully booked, as Sylvester, no feeling of narrow arises. Some other holiday-makers one sees 14 days not at all. Everything is very clean and nicely decorated, for example, two koi pools available. Many guests come from Germany, England and even the locals make time a weekend vacation in Dolphin. Shortly after christmas will then also a few russians and Poland. Often the locals the Dolphin, your wedding to celebrate, there one sees then beautifully dressed engaged couple and their guests with the fabulous.

    Waikkal is about 40 minutes away from the airport, a previous transfers over the travel agency is unnecessary and expensive. When we were there, the taxi ride from the airport to the hotel 1500/= Rupees (about 9, - €) cost. The hotel is right on the beach, you in the Seaside bungalow also clearly hear, since it was quite high waves is, one gets accustomed however fast to the beautiful sound. Except the shops the tour operator in the immediate vicinity, which are very expensive, and a few kioskartige shops there is nothing. Thus either in the hotel room, or by tuck tuck or taxi to other places. Fares from waikkal are clearly more expensive, than in Colombo, since just offs be applicable. Desperately take several offers catch up and always bargain! The next larger place is kochchikade, about 15 minutes drive, recommendable but is Negombo about half an hour away. There you can at the bazaar (also here act) and in numerous geshäften good shopping. In about an hour you are in Colombo.

Short travelogue Flight with qatar over Doha is pleasant, if you the flight so selects only about 2 hours to change in between. The time is enough, even though we arrived in Doha thought so many people, that we should certainly not. Short transfer to the hotel in the morning. But we could not yet in the room or villa. But you can for breakfast and at the pool to sleep in. Only about 13-14 hours the rooms were ready. Due to the fact that there is a quiet pool, it is a nice middle-class hotel for relaxing. Massage, you ... go out of the hotel, due to the lower prices. Since we were there over christmas/new year in a so-called villa stayed was the package extremely expensive. However it was a very good christmas and silvesterbüfett presented. The weather was super, and we could also go swimming in the sea. If you love waves, was lucky if you don't had to walk a few meters away in a small bay. Whether the excursions with Harald on the beach, you just outside town, in which the prices are compared. We have, for example, in Alltours for the trip to the elephant orphanage with herbal garden, a tea factory etc. from 4 participants 60, - euro per person paid. When Harald was similar and cost 55, - €. One drove over the same bad streets with a minibus and need for 120 kilometer over 3 hours. Smaller excursions were also Harald so to gnp. Tuk-tuk drive with his brother-in-law. I had concerns initially, but they were unjustified it was a nice nachmittagsausflug in the area. We individually with Harald discussed. So we were also the monument shown which for the zunami victims was built. A boat trip in the morning on the zimtkanal is for nature lovers very interesting. Paid in Dollar, Euro or Rupees. I had read Dollar exchanged, inter alia, because of the tip, that was completely unnecessary. There is 100 Rupees notes (circa €0.60) the are very good around constantly to give a tip. in the book the trip you have to make sure when the takeoff. Circa 3,5h before we were picked up from the hotel. Some people it was so, that the late evening were picked up and the lunch was the all inclusive wristband and the room also had to be removed. If you hadn't know or false bay is sour. We at alltoursx had thereby no problem. All in all a beautiful vacation. If you expect luxury but you should not in this hotel. In Germany the hotel would surely only three stars will. You are right on the ocean but on the breakfast terrace, no view of the sea. It is a shame, or? read hotel review

    The hotel is located approximately 45 minutes drive from the airport Colombo away and has a direct beach location. Unfortunately the sea is mostly a bit rough, so a harmless swimming only in the field of artificial groin is possible. The beautiful pool areas replace however everything. There were plenty of excursion possibilities through the travel agent but also about the beach boys. But attention, we as repeaters in the hotel (3. having) have unfortunately bad experiences with, because there was already accidents and without appropriate insurance coverage. You will find in the immediate location of the hotel stores, but also taxis and tuk tuks for individual investigation of the environment including waikal.
