Unfortunately we were disappointed with this establishment. We understand it’s rated 3 stars therefore not the Ritz however I had to ask for clean pillow cases as the ones on the bed were dirty. The young man who escorted us into the room quickly wiped down the toilet while we were standing there. Room was dirty and needed a proper clean. Food and customer service was average. At best this is 2 star accommodation.

Dear MagicCave We are not a star rated accommodation. However, regardless of ratings we always maintain our hotel and the rooms are clean. The linen in your room was clean, however when you requested for the pillow case to be changed we did so immediately. You statement regarding our staff wiping the toilet while you were standing there is not true. We clean the rooms daily. Our staff are always helpful and will assist the guest to ensure their holiday is a wonderful one. We will look into your suggestions. Best Regards Pratheepkanth

We stayed here for four nights. The rooms are small but they have all the basic necessities. Only bad thing is that there is no room cleaning or changing the sheets or towels - only every five days. Also rooms don’t have a safety locker. Internet is very limited - only 1 GB per room per day. With no TV in the rooms there isn’t much to do when it’s for example raining if you run out of your data. Also rooms don’t come with a fridge or water cooker. You do get a complimentary water bottle every day though. Bed was comfortable and AC very powerful. Toilet is half outdoors which is a nice thing. Swimming pool is quite small and the water looked a bit dirty/murky. Beach is right behind the property but unfortunately we couldn’t swim in the ocean due to big waves. But this time

Dear SatuJonna Thank you for your feedback. We will look into you suggestions. Just to clarify a few things, we do provide housekeeping on a daily basis. We wish you had spoken to our staff, they would have definitely cleaned the room for you. The pool is cleaned daily, the colour changed due to the rain but that has been rectified. This is the first time that it has happened because generally it does not rain during this time. Broadband has not yet been provided to Arugambay/Whisky Point hence there is a limitation on the daily usage of wifi. But we want our guests to experience the area than remain indoors. Yes, for all beverage and meal requirements the guests can visit our restaurant, which is fully equipped. We do not provide fridges or kettles in the room and we have not mentioned anywhere that we do. We have provided all the information on the facilities and services provided at the hotel online. Our staff are generally very friendly and interact with the guests. Thank you for staying with us and we do hope you will come again. Best Regards Pratheepkanth

My sister in Law offerd me two night here in your " hôtel " . I AM SO DISAPPOINTED!!!!!! It's the worst hotel i have ever Seen in my entire life. Even in Sri Lanka for 300 Rs i had a much better experience ans services ( much much better !!!! ). We arrived Yesterday morning, the bed was dirty and not done. And the rooms are not as the pictures on booking.com at all!! There's definitely no rules or hygiène over this " hôtel " !!! Dirty and Silly Homeless dogs for sure having a few ilnesses are enjoying the swimming pool or the papermoonkudils " hôtel " !!! I even Saw one of these disgusting dogs having a pie on the swimming pool lying beds. Personal of the hôtel doesn't Care about anything they just are chatting on their phones. For sure i'll write you the worst advies ever

Dear Nicolas We are surprised with your feedback. After our manager came and spoke to you and sorted all your issues, you were happy with what we offered. We offered you a complimentary dinner but you declined stating you had prior plans for dinner else where. Therefore, instead, we offered you complimentary beverages. Our guests love the dogs on the property because they are well behaved. They do not litter everywhere as you have stated. You did mention to our staff in fact that you do not like dogs. Therefore your comments are very subjective. All our staff are friendly and do their best to make our guests happy. You are the first to make such statements and we cannot accept your claims. The information and photographs provided online are accurate. Please do not make false statements. Bes Regards Pratheepkanth

We came here for lunch in very low season- there was NO one else staying there or eating. They refused to let us use the pool unless we bought a burger! We wanted to eat lunch but not a burger. The staff weren’t helpful and didn’t seem interested in having us there at all!
