Pros: Liked everything about the property. Architecture, rooms, staff, location and cleaniness - all just perfect! The ambience of the place during the day and night are just perfect and makes the holiday very memorable. Will definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

Pros: Very high service standards & safety measures The food was great 25 m swimming pool A lot of nice small cosy sitting areas Staff woke up at 2.30 in the morning to do check out
Cons: We had 3 great rooms, in one of the rooms shower was not really very new but
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We couldn't ask for more. The place is fantastic with great facilities, beach 1 minute walking, pool, great food and more. The installations are clean and pristine, decorated with very good taste. The staff was awesome, very friendly, professional and efficient and that is a priceless asset. The way that ALL the staff performed their duties exceed anything I we were expecting. For example, we planned to go to the World Heritage Sigiriya and was necessary to leave the facilities at 04:00am in order to get there around 09:00 but that meant to miss the breakfast on that day. As soon as our plans were known, Mishara, a staff member, organized the preparation of two breakfast packs to be ready for us in the morning to take on the journey. Pro-activity and a job well done at its best. A word of appreciation for a great job as well for Chaminda at the reception and to Numesh and Sanjeewa and for all the great people with no exception working there. A big thanks very much.
Cons: To leave.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: A delightful boutique property, beautifully appointed. It was wonderful to be so close to such a magnificent stretch of beach and still have the option of 2 lovely swimming pools. The grounds are plush, large and relaxing. (The train line that runs behind the property was really quite a thrill - waving to the passengers as they trundled past.) The staff were most accommodating and the dining options were superb. Very happy to recommend this property.
Cons: It was a terrible shame that so many people had decided to cancel their bookings because of the recent unrest. We spent 3 weeks in Sri Lanka and at no time did we feel threatened or unsafe. Please consider travelling to Sri Lanka.
6.7 Good
Cons: Service was a little haphazard. Our ac kept cutting off for a while in the afternoon. It was eventually fixed. We ordered some room service and the dishes were not cleared, there was no turndown service and when we returned to room late in the night the plates were still there

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Absolute must, upon entering, you get an explanation of the influence of Geoffrey Bawa, the architect who also determines was at our previous hotel Marissa Hills. Spacious layout and a lot of art makes you feel in a museum rather than a hotel. Room, restaurant and swimming pools. The whole outdoor happen to the last detail with the beautiful white beach to cap it. A must if you are in this area.
Cons: Nothing not to like

Pros: The stay at your bungalow was really amazing. Your family was so friendly, kind and let me feel like a familymember. I only booked with breakfast. But when you first cooked for us it was like a tastexplosion - really really good. Thanks for giving me the chance to try your cooking! The location by itself I think can't be better.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Calm and quite , 3 minutes walk to beach ,
Cons: Some staff mainly room service guys a bit awkward in response , bath kit not refilled for 2 days . Beach side Some chair or recliners should have been placed by hotel as that’s USP .
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The property is beautiful, both the building and the grounds. We had an enormous bed and a private courtyard area that opened onto the main garden/pool. Lovely mature trees and colourful flowers. The train line runs across the end of the garden and you walk over that straight onto the quiet beach. It was entertaining to watch the train chug along the single track as you lay by the pool. They aren't very frequent so are not disturbing. Staff very attentive. Pool towels carefully folded with flowers, and extras brought without being asked. A dish of nuts brought when it was noticed we were having a beer from the mini bar on our patio.
Cons: Location is fairly remote so not for long stays unless you just want to relax by the beach and pool.
9.2 Excellent

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The view from my balcony was phenomenal. My room was spacious and cozy.
Cons: I had an Ayurvedic body massage there but the therapist was sexually harassing me that he tried to go down on me.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Located in a quiet lane which has many other luxury villas. This had a very colonial feel , right from the moment we stepped in. We were welcomed with a glass of fresh papaya juice. Welcoming staff, especially Chaman who helped us find a good local taxi driver. All other staff people were very courteous & wanting to serve us well. And always with a smile on their faces. The room.... superb! Honestly, I didn’t expect it to turn out so good! It was huge!! With an added floor which had a kids bed. The bed was good & the chairs overlooking the garden were perfect for sipping ur Ceylon tea while doing nothing! The Sri Lankan food was very good; must try. You need to tell them a night before if u wish to have SL breakfast. The beach was just across the villa gardens. Only adventure was the railway line which u need to cross to reach to the beach. But the beach was good with not many people. I enjoyed my evening walks with my wife watching a lovely sunset. Lastly, A GREAT PLACE TO UNWIND AWAY FROM THE CITY CHAOS!!
Cons: I guess the bathroom needs to be updated a bit. Though kept very clean, just feels a little worn out! And the positioning of air con in the room. In the afternoon, It takes a long time to cool the room.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was friendly. The breakfast spread was delicious. The room was clean

The internet was very slow, The electricity was disconnected 2-3 times everyday. Spa service was so so and not worth the price. The access to the beach is tight and risky with too many rocky steps. And no beach beds at all..!! Overall, this resort will cost you triple price of much better resorts in srilanka.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Excellent service by staff. Well behaved, well trained, and extremely courteous staff. Beautiful cruise. Cruise will simply take your breath away. Rooms are spacious for a houseboat and are clean. Rooms are 24*7 Air conditioned even when cruising. Stunning scenery. Overall value for money.
Cons: The bathtub was extremely small and it was leaking. No electric kettle for warm water or tea. The food options are limited and extremely overpriced.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice boat trip and lovely night sleeping on the boat
Cons: Good Dinner but too expensive and Booking.com says it’s included in the price which afterwards we had to pay extra 25$ per person
7.9 Good
Pros: The whole concept was amazing. Peacefull and quiet. Perfect for a romantic weekend getaway. I recommend booking both rooms of the boat so that you can have complete privacy. It should be good for fishing enthusiasts as well.
Cons: The junior staff was ok, they should learn not to interfere during dinner. A senior staff member was trying to hoodwink me into paying for a cruise that was already booked by the other couple. He told me that we would be confined to our room during the cruise if we didn't pay this extra charge, which was not acceptable as I rightly pointed out that we had paid to use not only the room but all other common areas for the duration of our stay. Needless to say, this interaction led to diminish the overall experience of the trip as I had to get into arguments in my leisure time.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: amazing experience! great staff and food. Book with friends to get the whole boat!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: A truly magical experience. Words are not enough! The houseboat, the location, the food, the Captain and his crew truly fabulous. I travelled for 3 weeks in Sri Lanka, and this was the highlight. The captain helped with excursions and all my travel arrangements, providing transport whenever required. Morning and evening cruises were truly awesome, with nothing but the sound of nature (the houseboat has almost soundless engines). An experience I will never forget, and I will return! Do not miss a visit to Geoffrey Bawa's country estate "Lunuganga", and Bevis Bawa's "Brief Garden". Great empty beaches 10 minutes away by Tuk Tuk.
Cons: Nothing could have improved my stay, it was perfect!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location was super good. Rooms are also very beautiful and clean. It is one of the best place to stay for a day. Bit costly so when you tired and wanted to rest in your trip then this is the best and romantic stay in Srilanka
Cons: No reason

Pros: great location with wonderful beach very friendly staff away from city noise excellent place to relax
Cons: prices of food and beverages are bit high
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff made the stay. They are so welcoming and friendly and were very professional compared to other hotels we stayed in. We stayed here twice during our trip, once at the beginning and then again at the end as it was just a lovely atmosphere to stay in. Pool is half inside outside so is good when it rains. There is a security guard all night at the back and front of the hotel so belt really safe. Lovely beach views from the high rooms.
Cons: It was more basic than super luxury hotels so you tell it’s 4 star. But the price reflect this and it had everything we needed. No complaints!
6.7 Good
Pros: This place is "nice" for a 3 star hotel. The food is decent, the pool is nice, the beach in front of the hotel is clean.
Cons: It just lacks any character or X-factor to justify it's 5* rating & price tag. Essentially, it's a bit basic & over-priced. The spa is just a room with a massage table in, no ambience. The bedrooms are clean & spacious, but a bit like a Premier Inn, very spartan. There's a garden full of sunbeds that leads onto the beach, and all day, every day there was a big group of men who stood there, staring at the tourists on the sun beds (I mean, for hours, it's very uncomfortable), and if anyone set foot on the beach, they were accosted. The hotel do nothing about this. The bar service is incredibly slow, actually, non-existent, at one point we had ordered drinks but after 20min, checked to see where they were & all of the bar staff were watching cricket. Repeat daily. I almost never write negative reviews, but I wouldn't recommend this place - save your money for somewhere with more spark.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: the suite was fantastic and bath tub was excellent. loved the patio and breeze was relaxing with the waves. loved the living room set up. PM turndown service was nice with waters and food was good. will come back and do more. next time I will upgrade from b&b to half board.

Cons: Air conditioner is in front of the bed and the cold air is blowing at the guests. I saw the stuff cleaning the floors and the roof and the dirty water was falling into the pool. Towels were
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Amazing view from the hotel and room. Security on guard all night watching the beachfront and the hotel so felt very safe. The staff were lovely and welcoming and made the stay very special. The pool is outside but slightly under cover from the hotel which was a nice change from a classic pool. It provided a cooler area to relax on really hot days. The food was extremely tasty and we enjoyed everything we ordered. It felt clean and hygienic.
Cons: Hotel taxi service was very expensive but seemed to be a local taxi company so not worth the additional cost. Driver was not safe on the roads, very risky. Same length journey elsewhere cost less than half of price.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location is perfect, nice beach, not many people/tourists, no hotels nearby, great pool with sea view, all rooms have a glorious sea view, bed was comfy, good breakfast (had both a la carte and buffet, good variety, they had choices for everyone), we also tried their pizza and curry, both were very tasty, the staff was very friendly, always helpful and they have guards 24/7
Cons: 1. The bathroom was a bit smelly :/ Unfortunately the bathroom door would not stay open, the door was too heavy so it was closing itself all the time - the air in the bathrooms was stuck inside all the time and it was not possible to bring fresh air inside. Sometimes we did not get all towels renewed, we had to ask several times to get small towels for example. But the staff was friendly, so not a big deal. 2. Another big problem are the guys that are standing on the beach in front of the hotel - they are waiting for hotel guests to go out on the beach and then they start offering tuk tuk rides, trips and clothes. They keep standing there the entire day, which is quite annoying as people want to relax and not be bothered all the time. The hotel cant tell them off, as they are standing on the beach which is not a private beach but public. Plus, a lot of the hotel staff seems to be friends with those guys, which is another reason why the hotel wont send them away. 3. Food & drinks at the hotel are rather expensive (western prices), plus they charge you automatically an additional 10% service charge & another 10% taxes. A pizza for example costs 1100 LKR + service charge and taxes. You can get a meal for 150-400 LRK in sri lanka so that is rather expensive. Most of the meals were however even more expensive (1500-3000 LKR). 4. Not many food options outside the hotel as the hotel is not located in a big city but rather a small village - on one hand its good because the beach is not crowded at all, on the other hand its not really possible to go out for a walk, have a drink and dinner somewhere. also if you go out on the street, local people will approach you often and offer you tuk tuk drives etc. If you plan to eat street food and spend a lot of time outside the hotel, get a tuktuk driver that will take you around and show you some places (we met a lovely guy that was showing us around and showed us some local restaurants).

Cons: Due to the sinhala and tamil new year, most of the staff had gone on holiday so the service was a bit slow. The food options for dinner could be improved by adding more ingredients to each dish which would make it worth the for the price we pay.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is in a good location set just back from the beautiful Bentota beach with its huge sweep of golden sand. It is low rise and comfortable, with a large pool. I may say that in the general facilities are quite good. In its earlier years this hotel must have been truly a 5* hotel. You can imagine its days of glory. Now 5* are overrated. It's no luxury here and the hotel needs a complete overhaul. The stuff is the only one who is 5*: very helpful and kind. Although we checked out at 12, they let us linger 3 hours more at the pool( our train to Colombo arrived at 3.40) and we were given towels and beach beds. It was very nice taking into consideration that on our arrival day we could not enjoy the pool entirely because of some kind of "event". Also we were welcomed with cold drinks. The breakfast was very good too but I only ate fresh, on the spot made food: delicious egg hoppers ( you should try it), omelette and gaufre. I'll give that to this hotel. WIFI is very good and the bed very comfortable.
Cons: We had a basic room booked last minute but still even a basic room in a 5* should be impeccable. Our room reflected a lack of maintenance. The room was clean but the bathroom not so much. No complimentary water in the room. I don't want freebies but our minibar was empty too and I was thirsty. Also we arrived during the weekend and an 'event' was held outside the hotel witch lasted almost all afternoon and was incredibly loud. I was told by reception that during weekend many locals come to enjoy here. I do not have a problem if they behave properly. But they took up the entire pool, bumping and tossing so I could swim only after they left. Some people entered the water with their travelling clothes on although you should shower before entering the pool or if your religion says otherwise at least to slip into new cleaned clothes before entering the pool.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Stayed with my wife, the hotel was fantastic and i would like to thank to the management ( Mr. David ) for the room arrangements with all VIP amenities in the room.

3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing to like. Hotel is beyond economicall repair. AC unit is split type and temperature want go below 23.5c / noisy. U can hear the train everytime it passes behind the Hotel. Hotel allows locals to access pool for small price unfortunately it cramps the pool and reciption. Rooms balcony has no privacy. Technically you are sitting with 2 neighbors. Hotel should not be rated more than 2 stars

Pros: The owner, she nice and want to help you Breakfast was good and the dinner cheap and good You can rent a bike Good place to stay with a small budget
7.9 Good
Pros: Grace the host was very helpful & accomodating. The room is basic but was clean and has everything you need, including a fridge which was a great addition. We had a local cuisine and a Western breakfast there— both were tasty and ready at the time we requested. There is a nice garden/ patio area to spend time in and the neighborhood is quiet and beautiful to walk through.
Cons: A little removed from the beaches and other sights to see... but still walkable within ~20-30min or an easy tuk-tuk ride. The buses also come frequently along the main road. Note: this is a guesthouse where a family, including a child, also lives, so there is some extra noise. It didn’t bother us- we know to expect that when you’re booking a Homestay & enjoyed getting to know the family- but if you’re not wanting that, perhaps better to look somewhere else!

Pros: Breakfast was amazing, the host is ready to cook good food for you. Quiet location.

Pros: The owner was nice and helpful. I liked the quietness of the place, the area was peaceful. It was nice to be able to rent a bike to go to the city and the beach. The breakfast was good, one of the best omelette I had in Srilanka.

Pros: The food was outstanding with Lots of varieties...tasty ... the restaurant, cafe staff was really helpful. Food was Nicely presented.. The staff Was really helpful in numerous ways. And always there for us ...specially the reception, the room serves etc. The comfort The room and the facilities were greatly appreciated. No interruptions in the given services. The kids pool was huge comparatively and our daughter enjoyed a lot. The property/ Building As designers in the field of Architecture and interior designing, we know the building is an architectural asset...the concept , the design , and the special progression, the details, the elements , the color combinations of sea green, the blue , the grey, beige , and the heritage red was perfectly blended with in the building, and the wavey tile design in black and red was merged in the design beautifully to enhance the concept . We loved it so much. And we really recommend Cinnamon Bey as a perfect holiday destination. And once again the service of the management and the staff was really appreciated.
Cons: It is not that we dislike, but as architects we are really great full if you can give a facelift to the hotel building keeping the concept and color scheme as it is . And to do a new design proposal for the landscaping to make the surrounding more attractive and to synchronize with the beach atmosphere. And to enhance the maintenance facility...to enhance The vibrant quality of a. Five stars ⭐️ hotel.

Pros: We arrived at 3 pm . Yet the room was not ready . Check in formalities taken more than 30 minutes , guys at the reception are like mad dogs attending to many guests at the same time and keep everyone hanging ! They need professional training . Finally we got the room keys around 4 pm ! Amenities in the rooms are very basic not even a shampoo or tooth brush available . Had to beg for an iron and a table , no hair dyers .. shame shame shame ! First and last stay with this hotel .
Cons: Everything about the service . Poorly managed . Full occupancy should not be an excuse to compromise the quality of service or quality of food !
9.2 Excellent
Pros: 1. The location. 2. The location. 3. The location. By all means the location tops every other aspect and every other facility on any resort in that area.

Overall, facilities for families and children were just too good. Even if you dont wish to go out and just relax , its a one stop pace for your holiday.
Cons: The bathrooms, not very fascinating and the room amenities. This feed back is not to sound negative but just to inform a great property to improve.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The receptionist lady was so nice with us, she upgraded our stay for free.
Cons: The restaurant staff were not nice with us. They kept ignoring us when we ordered coffee. This continued for 3 days. When they brought coffee, it was cold. They said if I wanted to get it hot, I had to find it somewhere else. I already had another booking in September, after this experience, I cancelled my booking.
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Everything was great
Cons: The potter took to long to pick up the luggage from the room. Also to promote your beautiful location the should be little bit more on the ball. I mean the staff at the entrance where we board the vehicle. There was no goodbye and hope to see you again approach.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very clean, lovely resort, good spacious rooms, pool was delightful, and staff were quick to put down the towels and mattresses for the sun beds. Food was good.
Cons: Food inside the resort was expensive, although good. People would try to sell you things from the road whilst you’re at the pool, not the hotels fault, but something to note, as soon as they see you leave the hotel to go to the beach, they are behind you like wild fire trying to sell
6.3 Good
Pros: Location of the property
Cons: The service was below the standard that we expected. The breakfast was ok but the other restaurants at the property are not serviced properly.

Pros: The property is beautiful with really well kept gardens and a nice swimming pool to enjoy. The room was very clean, good facilities, great shower and very comfy bed. Location is also very good, not far from the beach and restaurants. It’s in a remote area which is great if you like peace and quiet.
Cons: The WiFi was pretty poor to be honest, it got slightly better towards the end of our stay. I have to say I got a weird vibe from the place, the staff were nice but seemed oddly nerved. The owner seemed nice when we arrived but after we told him we didn’t want to rent a bike for 1,700 p/d (v. Expensive for Sri Lanka) and we didn’t want the breakfast ($7 p/p, again v. Expensive! I paid just $4 for two people down on the main road) he seemed not be too pleased. When we checked out I said thank you to all the female staff and he didn’t even say goodbye or thank you. Anyway, great place overall! Highly recommend and the room is great value for money.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The rooms were great. The beds really comfortable. We hade the pool right outside the door. The food was good too. The best thing was the staf. They were really friendly and helped us whit everything we needed and gave advise.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The nice and lushious garden and house, spacious room and very friendly staff, arranged extra bed and later check out for us. Very calm and green surroundings. Excellent breakfast! Thanks for having us!
Cons: The location is a bit far, but no problem with tuktuk or scooter.
5.4 Okay
Pros: It had a swimming pool
Cons: The staff were not polite and made us feel uncomfortable. We were traveling as a big group. They canceled one of our rooms without advising us. They refused to clean the bath room after 1 day stating they only did it every 3 days. There weren't enough towels in the room. Refused to give the kids breakfast since we ordered at 10 and last orders were at 10. The place is decent, the road to get there is a bit remote but we had a van so it was fine. Mainly the owner had a really bad attitude and left us who are fun. Loving group with a sour taste in our mouth.
7.5 Good
Pros: Decent rooms, far from the beach (but that's something that you anyways see when you decide to make the booking). Good breakfast and most of the staff were really nice.
Cons: - The only place in Sri Lanka which asked us to take a full meal when we asked if we could have a small bowl of rice and curd for our 1year old toddler. At some places they gave it as complimentary, at other places they charged us, but nowhere anyone said no and asked to take full-meal instead when the requirement was just a bowl for a kid !! But anyways that's not a complaint as they were well within their right to say so but this certainly doesn't come under good hospitality that we had come to see all across our stay in Sri Lanka. - The initial room that was allocated was a completely different one from the one booked online. Not sure if that was intentional or a genuine error from booking.com/hotel, but was however resolved in some time.
7.9 Good
Pros: Accommodation was clean and comfortable Staff were first class Breakfast was excellent Grounds were lovely well maintained with plenty of seating areas including an excellent balcony area

Pros: The staff here were excellent. Very friendly and we enjoyed their company.
Cons: Quite cooped up and even though they said daily maid service we didn’t have anyone clean our rooms during our 2 night stay. There’s no fridge or kettle in the room and I would have liked the basics at least.. no hair dryer or iron either which was disappointing and we didn’t get sheets to cover up on a couple of the beds... quite a distance from the beach about a 15 minute drive or 45 minute walk so not very convenient and we had to wait forever for a vehicle to take us in to the main beach strip.

Handed over 2 access cards for swmming pool at check in and said if you lose then 4000 SLR would be charged. You need to wear sweet formals when you enter restaurants. Quite weird, as it is a beachfront property and swim suites are allowed everywhere. What is special at restaurant?

Cons: Breakfast options was a bit disappointing, very few options to choose from. Egg station has queue all the time. Bread was hard but the Banana bread was lovely. Drones are flying next to the building on our last day with camera facing into the rooms.
6.7 Good
