Booked well in advanced and communication was great and fast. They even arranged transport for us from hotel to dive school. Did a two bottle boat dive. Sites where not great lots of pretty fish but no corals. A shame they rushed everything to much above and under water and that made us feel stressed so did not enjoyed as...

We were able to book a triple room for only one night as the hotel was full. The girls at the reception were extremely helpful in trying to get us another days stay but unfortunately there were no cancellations. The room was basic. A television would have been most welcome. It was nice to hear the waves dashing on the...

The reviews we read of Ypsylon were fair and honest - lovely location on a small, clean beach, situated right by the hotel with really excellent food and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. On arrival, this was all true. Our room was clean and a good size, minimal decoration but homely. We had a balcony which overlooked the...

We stayed at Ypsylon for 10 days, and were really happy with it. The location is the best, and the hotel has the nicest stretch of beach than any other fancier hotels in the nearby beaches south to Ypsylon. You can also access those beaches easily by walking along the beach if you want to go to another restaurant for...

We had to cancel our booking due to the pool being worked on. Because th children weren't able to go into the ocean the pool was a must. Was off season in July but the whole property did not look like in the photos.

In Sri Lanka for a week, with two days' diving on the front end. Found Ypsylon through TripAdvisor and made arrangements in advance with a deposit up front via bank wire and the balance after our 2nd days' dive was complete. All in all a solid operation. While my wife and I are already certified and had our own gear,...

The hotel must change the furniture and bathroom sink and toilet for a new one because its already old and smelly. The room was smelly and covered with dust, the only good thing about this hotel is that the beach is right in front of the hotel!

Location: Very good location with nice view over ocean. Rooms: Basic but clean. For that price I would expect fridge or warm water at least. Food: Good but overpriced. Services: I had the feeling that staff was a little bit overworked but I think they were doing what they can. Diving: Very good but bring your own equipment if you...
