Not bad, well located, pricey
This is an excellent location for safaris at Yala. The facility is fine, but not luxurious. The bungalows are very nice and very comfortable. The grounds are OK - but not a place I'd want to spend many days in. The driveway into the hotel is not adequately maintained - our driver, who was excellent, would not bring the van down. The food was good, but not great. We felt that the extras - drinks, non-inclusive meals, etc, that you have to pay for, were overpriced for the Sri Lankan economy and comparable hotels, and it felt like they were taking advantage of the fact that you were stuck there. The staff was rather inflexible and not as accommodating as we've typically found in Sri Lanka

Great hotel and safari
Lovely room, great safari, buffet breakfast was great, the a la carte dinner menu was disappointing but overall a great place to stay. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Would stay again
