When we checked in, we were served tamarind juice - how appropriate! The service was decent...the rooms were comfy, clean and spacious, the surrounding was well kept and tidy. Just one thing - the management should light up the walkways because it tends to get a bit dark at night. Otherwise, we had a relaxing stay.

The environment is very relaxing. There are birds and squirrels everywhere. Staff is very helpful. They help to decide our meal as well. Meal has a lot of varieties. We had to leave dinner before taking dessert. They kept it till we come back and they were ready to serve it to our room.

The hotel was booked by SriLankan airlines for transit stay, extremely disappointing stay- number of reasons; - rooms are not clean - no WiFi in rooms - bathrooms not very well maintained - poor food quality - multiple issues in the room This hotel is definitely not recommended for decent quality stay.

This was my second stay at Tamarind over the past two years. Sadly, the hotel is at the end of its glory days. I imagine is was once a marvelous hotel, with garden paths to wander and nice cabins. Unfortunately the hotel today is rundown. Maintenance and upgrading is sorely needed. Air conditioning, when it works, is available only in...
