Overall good but they have a lot to learn.
Overall good. They have a lot to learn regarding food selection compared to other all inclusive holidays we have taken especially Turkey. We booked B&B but were informed that we should take all inclusive as it represented good value. We don’t agree £70 each per day wasn’t good value at all unless you wanted to snuff yourself or get outrageously drunk!

Very nice
+ Very nice resort. Wonderful huge pool and great pool area on the lawn. Beautiful beach too - and swimmable :). Animation team active. Nice main restaurant, lots of food choices. And tasty. Live music at times nice touch. Close to the airport, very good choice for a first or last stop in Sri Lanka. - Very large resort, not for those who prefer more privacy. Sometimes loud too. They take day guests (probably there for a meeting or something), so that at one point there were no more sun umbrellas left for us - which should not happen. A bit complicated to get around. Could have more of a local touch.
