Off season stay at Anilana
The stay was really nice and the staff were super friendly. I got a good deal because of the off-season stay, but the rain did dampen the fun. But haveing a non crowded hotel was great as well :)

Great staff and warm welcome
A lovely warm welcome from the staff at Anilana -beautiful pool and clean beach area ,poolside rooms spacious and fabulous bathroom. Delicious buffet breakfast with a great variety of Sr Lankan and Western choices. You will need to let them know if you want alcohol with your meals as they do not have a bar on site -staff were very accomodating and nothing was too much trouble.
