The Surf hotel is a nice property, located right on the beach. It has 2 swimming pools and the beach right in front of the rooms. The food is good and the spa is also worth a visit. We stayed here for 3 nights and wish we could spend a few more days here.

Beautiful property at a reasonable price. However, staff is terribly untrained and have no clue about service and how to manage an emergency.
We were at the hotel with family and unfortunately my 2 year old daughter had a severe stomach infection with continuous vomiting. I asked for some medical help from the Hotel front office and they were completely clueless of the situation and how to manage the crisis. Eventually I had to browse google to figure out a Hospital and called my own driver at 3 am because Hotel does not even have a car for an emergency.

Staff at the restaurant are very casual and start eating at the buffet like guests even during the formal breakfast timing. They had no knowledge about service. If you ask for something, they will pat your back casually and even ask you to get up and self serve at the buffet, even for the tea

I visited this place with MY family. The hotel is just by the sea and shares a common beach area. There is a sprawling garden at the front and in between the beach and the hotel. Overall, the place is clean and well maintained. Food options are plenty and we got some good taste of local, and international food platters

Recently i have visited Sri Lanka and stayed for one night at "The Surf". The property is nice and beach facing.. Rooms are good with nice sea view but lack few basics when it come to washrooms. Food is over priced and lack with much options especially if you are thinking of in room dinning. Room service is ok but not great.
