In the Room
the room was facing the pool and the beach was just a 5 min walk from the room
the rooms needs to be renovated, the room was too dark at night, the hotel did not provide enough toiletries
the music behind the swimming pool
the location is extremely bad, the area is not safe i was really scared on the way to the hotel, its in the middle of no ware,nothing close to you no shops no supermarkets, you have to arrange your trip to airport early coz there is no taxi in the area,the food is not what i expect.
The outdoor is marvellous
The night manager was untrustworthy, asking for tips to be given to him for distributing to the staff. I gave directly to the staff and not to him. The hotel insisted on settling the bill even when it was way after midnite when I checked in. The administration was inefficient, I put up with bill settlement 5 different occassions during my stay.
The staff are very friendly, the room is quit. the hotel has nice garden, nice pool
the value for money is poor, the hotel is far away from town center, No shopping places around the hotel, there is nothing to do after 6:00 pm. you cannot get out of the hotel once it is dark.
The choice came down to Palm Village Hotel due to it's reason of being close to the airport, only 15/20km's away. With a taxi ride for 2500/3000 rupees to the airport, you will be there in 45/1hr, since the roads are horrible, and speeds slow; so plan your excursion ahead of time. The hotel has a very nice feel to it, it's like walking into an old movie, where you find old men in brown safari suits smoking pipes and cigars. The room, very comfortable, and has all utilizes needed to spend there. At night, if your the type of person that has to sleep in silence, you might not, due to the roughness of the ocean hitting the shore.
You could'nt swim in the ocean, the water is way to rough at times. The place could use an upgrade tecnologicly, by providing high-speed wifi to it's customers throughout out the hotel, since local service providers would only provide you with Edge and not 3G outside of Colombo and major cities/destinations. This place can use some garden/pool side lights to illuminate the palm trees, and give a more luxurious/romantic feel at night. Since this place is out of the way, you are majorly dependent on hotel, prices are not avreage to Colombo or Kandy hotels, and the buffet selection is very small, so be prepared with food selections and what to eat. always ask ahead of time what are the selections for the next day.
The swimming pool
Value for money very poor.You can find hotels for.less than 30euros much cleaner and nicer
The staff was polite and accommodating. It was a short (30 min) ride to the airport. The bar/restaurant was a nice accent.
There was only cold water showers.
Location, food, all good
Rooms needREfrigerator and tv - no internet but tidy rooms, beds definately need to improve - a double should not be two seperate bed together - but still acceptable
You can find mach clean and nice hotel and location by the same value of the money @the rooms are not clean@ the food and the restorant are veary dirty many flys over the open food like saulad and sweet@the location is veary bad @the tv is old no remote you must change the tv channel manually @ the manager and his staff are very bad you smil for them but the show anger you give them tip they ask more @I wish from booking .com not show this hotel any more allhotel iwas booking via booking .com are good except this hotel
This is the worst hotel I ever seen
nice pool and friendly staff, close to airport.
room is clean but everything is quite basic. food are ok.
ontbijt buffet/lunch prima, personeel goed. kamers, vnl badkamer wel wat aan te verbeteren; wat armoedige badkamer, locatie/garden/pool heerlijk, al om al prima
Ik heb genoten van de relaxte, beetje oud koloniale sfeer. Het is een relatief klein hotel met een mooie palmentuin en daarachter direct de zee. Vanuit je kamer (als je boven zit) een balkon met uitzicht op tuin en zee. Vanuit je bed kun je het ruisen van de zee horen :)! Een rustig en eenvoudig hotel met mooi zwembad; leuk voor een paar dagen nabij de airport.
Het strand is hier niet zo mooi als elders. Zwemmen in de zee kan niet; veel rotsen voor de kust en sterke stroming.
goed verzorgde maaltijd tijdens de jaarwisseling (prijs/kwaliteit verhouding)
een aantal andere hotelklanten (all incluisief gasten)
Goede service, goed eten, mooie lokatie
Meningsverschil over de boeking. Ik: hebben geboekt met Half Board (slapen, ontbijt, diner) Hotel: Bed en Breakfast.
Hotel agréable, avec des chambres confortables. Très bon ambiance et restauration très correcte.
