Great resort right on the beach

Pros: The food, the location and the atmosphere.
Cons: Staff hinting for tips.
Location: My husband enjoyed a massage. We did not feel the need to leave the resort during our stay.
We spent 3 nights here, and felt thoroughly relaxed. It is an easy 40 minute train ride from Mt Lavinia to Wadduwa Station and then a tuk tuk to the resort. . My young son found plenty to do - playing in the pool, collecting shells and coral on the beach and splashing around with the local children. The waves were a bit rough for us to spend a lot of time beach swimming. The meals are great - if you like buffets, make sure you get the all-inclusive deal as it was good value. We enjoyed the evening entertainment and everyone was made to feel like a friend. If I had one concern, it would be the staff hinting for tips - they are told not to ask, but there were many times that we felt uncomfortable as they shared with us how expensive this and that was, one even approached my four year old and asked for his shoes and toys for their kids (he did not know what to do). PS. We always make a habit of tipping, so these hints were not necessary!!
