Very well managed property with professional and welcoming staff. The restaurant staff were amazing and was always available for assistance. It was a pleasant and a safe stay overall, also one of the best experiences I have ever had.
The staff were friendly but with limited, sometimes no, English. There were no amenities except a pool. And I mean none, not even a pack of cards...
There were no waiting staff in the garden/pool area though this was as mentioned the only place to be in a quarantine hotel. On top of that, despite the fact the Government had changed the requirement to one test on arrival for vaccinated persons and having to stay for only one night, they made us do a second test and had us stay for 7 nights. I get we had booked that but they acted like we were never free to leave and they had us in a quarantine space for 6 additional days at cost. It felt duplicitous after we discovered the reality of the law change. It was a 7 day prison by the pool which we needn't have done. I get times are tough in the tourist industry but keeping people unnecessarily amongst people in quarantine makes no sense at all. Food was tasty but very limited choice. This might be a tired 4 star hotel but is never a 5 star hotel in a month of Sundays. I love Sri Lanka and this could have been a much better stay but it wasn't much but four walls, a pool and regular food.
The beach by the way is littered, but not too badly and the sea in April is extremely rough. You wouldn't want to swim here.
Above room 46 on the roof is an aircon unit with a faulty compressor which bangs loudly every 6 to 8 seconds 24 hours a day, and I mean loudly. They switched the unit off after I complained which I appreciated but you'd need to tel them.
The balcony baths look romantic but in truth they were pretty dirty.
we visited Taprobana a week ago and checked into a suite, the rooms were tidy and spacious with extra comfy beds and a Jacuzzi. the service and food was amazing, hospitality at it's best! if anyone is looking for quite getaway this is the place to be.🙂
