We were there during monsoon season so there were not many guests in the hotel. It was a really pleasant stay. We could hear the sound of waves in the room all day long (when it wasn’t raining). Swimming pool is small but nice to relax when you are tired of the sand. Good standard for the price we paid. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It’s a perfect place to relax. It’s not far from the coral reef where you can go snorkeling. We saw many places where you could rent a surf board or take surfing classes (due to the rain we were not able to do many activities tho). Definitely recommend the place.
Great location right on the beach. Also a lovely clean pool. Booked for two nights but stayed for eight. Sorry to leave.
Not a lot to dislike, possibly more variety in breakfast choice.
The staff was great! They were really nice and helpful. The pool and location were also a plus and the restaurant served decent food at a good price for the area.
Breakfast was not super good as they only had one of the options available. I don't eat eggs and my so it comprised of 3 semi-burnt toasts, a bit of fruit and juice and watery coffee.
The breakfast was excellent and the staff were fabulous. I had an enjoyable stay.
The rooms were small and expensive in comparison to the hotels nearby. This is because of the pool, but if you don’t need the pool usage then it’s worth going elsewhere.
My review is actually for the Serenade Beach Hotel, 500m away from Drifters Hotel & Restaurant - a newer building under Malith’s administration (a really nice young man who did the best to make our stay a very pleasant one). Unfortunately, I am unable to write a review for the Serenade Beach Hotel because we’ve booked a room at Drifters and we made this switch at location, when we’ve checked in. The owner of these two beautiful hotels was very kind to let us check in earlier (much earlier, i.e. 7 AM instead 2 PM) and let us rest after a long flight. We had an amazing experience there (amazing location - quite and relaxing as we wanted, great food, clean room with a spectacular view of the ocean, only nice people taking care of the building and our comfort, etc.) and we are dreaming to come back one day.
