Beautiful view of the ocean and two small islands. Room was spacious and all rooms overlook the sea, I presume. Occupied one of the Air conditioned rooms, where the AC did not work properly. After complaining and repairs attempted, it lowered the outside temperature only by about 1 and half degrees Celsius. (I occupied room No 8). Apart from this...

The room spacious and has light and bright colours, each with a balcony for the upstairs rooms. There are limited rooms with air-con. Fan rooms tend to feel humid with the sea breeze. There is no TV. Wi-fi is only available in the restaurant. One may find several restaurants along the beach.

Beautiful views at Ypsylon resort. Rooms were nice with balconies overlooking the ocean. A few beach chairs great to watch the sunset from. Was on halfboard, food was ok. My friend is a vegetarian and they only had rice to serve her for dinner.

The staff are very helpful. The hotel is perfect for if you want total chill out. The pool was lovely as the beach is not soft sand and the current is strong. The view is lovely. The diving school is really good

Stayed here for 10 days in January 2015. I'd eaten at the hotel during a previous visit but not stayed there however based on it's location I decided to book my stay when I came back on my own. I'd contacted the hotel beforehand and requested a room on the first floor just for peace of mind and that's what...

This is a seaside property. On the side of a beach! Not very friendly reception. Very matter of fact but not really knowledgeable. Rooms are very average to put it mildly. But good thing they face the beach. Many do not have air conditioning. It can get hot, and ceiling fan is of no use inside mosquito net. There was...

This resort was by far the worst resort I have ever visited in my life. In a country like Sri Lanka where all other locations you feel like home, this place will be a reference to my worst experience ever. I was treated as if they were paying me for staying there. I had an experience with one of my...
