Beach view bungalow at eco friendly hotel which is well maintained and very clean. Excellent service. Quiet and intimate location. Tips included in cost as such no staff member suggested further tipping which for this country I found very refreshing. Highly recommended.

We booked through virgin holidays from 26th December- 3rd January and had a wonderful time. We are a fun, close-knit family so generally have fun wherever we go. BEWARE- WINE IS NOT INCLUDED IN ALL-INCLUSIVE. We love wine, so this meant we had a hefty room bill when we left. They have to import all wine which is why it...

The hotel setting is great... The management however will try to tap into your pocket for anything they could get their hands on. Extra charges will be invented..On my checkout I was told to pay an extra amount not mentioned in check in. The manager Mr Senaka said its because of early check in.. When I said it was pre-approved...

A little apprehensive to book The Ranweli Holiday Village after reading a few reviews, but as we were travelling with our daughter who is 20 months old, the hotel seemed to fit more of what we needed. The Ranweli is a 3 star hotel with 4/5 star reviews. Important to remember its a 3 star hotel which does things well....
