We quite enjoyed our stay at Club Villa, but in comparison with other resorts we stayed in whilst in Sri Lanka, it is overpriced and run down.
The location is nice, next to the train tracks and near the beach, the yards are lovely and well maintained, and the pool is lovely. We especially loved the complimentary afternoon tea by the pool! The food we ordered from the restaurant was all lovely and reasonably priced. We also loved the art made from our pyjamas in the mornings!
The bathroom is incredibly run down with rust stained benches and an icky little shower. A television and bar fridge would very much be appreciated in the room. We were supplied with one water bottle per person per day and were charged when we asked for additional water, which I find to be outrageous considering the heat in Sri Lanka.
Also - avoid the spa at all costs. I paid $25 AUD for the worst manicure of my life! There was a choice of two awful paint colours, and the end product was almost comical - this sounds so mean, but is honest - I did a better job painting my dogs nails as a five year old! More
