      Comfortable and spacious

      Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ideal Beach Resort! Comfortable and spacious rooms, great service and delicious food during both breakfast and dinner. Mosquitoes are naturally present given the location, so be sure to pack something to deter them. Wifi is not great, so if you need a connection for whatever reason, perhaps plan ahead.

      Nice beach resort, short rickshaw ride from temple

      We were lucky to get a nice room with view of sea. Our only disappointment was that the restaurant wasn't better located, as it was set back so far from sea & all under cover.

      Extremely attentive staff and fantastic restaurant. We went for the Sri Lanka theme, and enjoyed the live music at dinner as well as the excellent Sri Lankan food at breakfast. Very clean beach. They need to check the plumbing to avoid bathroom odors.

      The perfect place to relax.

      Our 3 night stay was lovely. The beach is clean and well serviced by staff. I really enjoyed our first day on the beach, it was picturesque and relaxing. On the second day it was not. There was a large conference at the resort and the beach was packed with loud people who had no concept of personal space. It was really unpleasant, but not much could be done about it other than leaving the beach. Just hope that others get to experience a day like our first, though it is out of guests control. There was some dust on the bedroom furniture, but everything else was great and the bed was amazingly comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The food was very good and the live music entertainment was enjoyable. The staff were very attentive to our needs. Just ask, and they make it happen.
