The Pigeon Island Beach resort is perfectly placed near the beautiful north east beach of Sri Lanka. The room are nice and the service and hospitality is great. The pool is nice and clean. We had two times dinner in the hotel and this was very good. The lunch was not that good. Surely a place to recommend.

My wife was 5.5 months pregnant and she had no issues (besides a bouncing baby). Visibility is mediocre at best, apparently we are in off-season (Tip: mind you they didn't...

Apart from couple of meals, I loved the meals there, specially breakfasts. But the dessert should be improved. The room was...
