Having spent a week in the Maldives we wanted a hotel close to the airport and this hotel was suggested by the call centre at Hayes & Jarvis. I always read hotel reviews but this was not open when we booked as undergoing a major refit. The girl at H&J had just returned from an educational in Sri Lanka and said it would be lovely once complete.

It was very nice, our room had a large bathroom, very oddly it was built with glass walls and blinds could be closed for privacy? The bath was huge and large walk in shower. The rooms have TV with DVD/CD player and you can borrow films.

The pool was large and warm and we never had a problem finding a beach bed. Beach sellers were ok and did take no for an answer. We bought a wood tuk tuk car for our son and my husband haggled 2/3's off the price.

The hotel has other guests which we loved, the delightful chipmunks. They were everywhere. If you left the room door open they were in! I know some people so not like animals but we fell in love with these little creatures. I apologise to all other guests, I know some got fed up with us feeding them. We could have 6 or more sat with us all day on the beach as we took bread from the dining room. The chipmunks just sat on our beds all day feeding. This was fine and harmless you might think but it was the birds who followed who caused the problem. They tried to pinch the bread and made horrible noise. We did also give the birds some food as all animals but they were a pain. If I could I would have brought those chipmunks home.

The hotel arranged for us to have a private driver and we went to the elephant orphanage. 2 hour drive but worth it. The car/driver cost
