                          9.6

                          As soon as we walked through the large wooden doors we caught our breath as the view was spectacular! Staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and well priced. We were happy to eat in the hotel restuarant for all 3 meals across our 4-day stay. The hotel was luxurious and had a beautiful beach view. The pool is amazing! We were very happy to spend all of our time in the hotel, by the pool or at the spa.

                        • Couple
                          8.8

                          The relaxed atmosphere and the service provided by the hotel staff. Also the restaurant serves excellent food with a elaborated wine suggestion.

                          Some problems with payments with Mastercard and pin code with their terminals. Also the prices of food and beverages at the pool are a bit expensive.

                          7.8

                          Quality of food was excellent - obviously good chefs The room was very stylish and always spotlessly clean and well cared for Great watching turtles in the waves Very chic hotel Would recommend it

                          Decking work was being undertaken and seemed extremely slow to progress Service in the restaurant could do with a lot of improvement - it did not match the quality of the food, nor the rest of the hotel Generally the majority of the staff seemed to lack confidence and not have sufficient training or abilities to properly manage a top class hotel - lack in leadership

                        • Couple
                          9.2

                          The Fortress is amazing, very luxurious and spacious, a great end to our holiday!

                        • Couple

                          Stunning hotel with staff who will pander to your every need. The food is fantastic and there was some light entertainment some evenings. The hotel itself is stunning and situated right on the beach; the views are perfect. You will relax at this hotel.

                          It's a little far out from Galleries city centre and hikkaduwa (it will take you an hour at least to get to the latter).

                          The Fortress ist noch ein Hotel wo einfach alles stimmt. Es ist nicht billig, aber dafür kriegt man auch etwas und man trifft dementsprechen auch ein Publikum das ein gewisses Niveau hat. Wir fühlten uns einfach rundum wohl und bedauerten, dass wir nicht noch 2 Tage mehr gebucht hatten. Aber auf jeden Fall werden wir schon im Januar wieder zurückgehen.Das

                          Das einzige was ich ändern würde, wäre, dass man keinen Kaffee mehr aus Amerika imortiert, da es in Sri Lanka den besten Kaffee der Welt gibt. Marke Hansa! Aber das wirklich nur am Rande erwähnt.

                          Very comfortable. Beautiful location. Just one excellent restaurant - not too much choice, and the hotel was not too big.

                          It would have been nice to have a beach for when our grandchildren visited us.

                          I liked everything about The Fortress. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, it was wonderful. The staff was very attentive, friendly and polite. Our room was large, clean, and comfortable. Dining at the hotel was very good with a nice variety of foods on the menu and an extensive wine list. Lounging by the pool was fabulous, along with the poolside service. I felt like a princess. I look forward to going back.

                          Location, camere molto spaziose, piscina molto grande, spa attrezzata

                          Servizio molto approssimativo. Piscina tenuta male e senza servizio. Cibo normale ma estremamente caro per sri lanka. Troppo staff, poco servizio

                          This is really 5 stars hotel. In compaire to other hotels near, I think this is best choice (taken note the price). Really nice rooms. All rooms to the beach, nice deisign and really good personal. Beautiful swiming pool as well at night time (led lights on the bottom!). Ifyou like wines - this is the best hotel for you :)))). One evening there was Sri Lanka show and small cocatil party. Very comfortable and beatuful spa. Many options If you would like to try other food - 400 metrs from the hotel there is small restaurant with red mark "Sea Food". Really simple, but absolutly best prices and best tastes :)))

                          Food actually wasn't so high class even good looking. And very expensive. Quit expensive spa. No restaurants or shops near hotel (except good and chip one).

                          The design and the swiming pool,SPA are very nice and the nature and alos beach

                          As the location is best for swiming and beach but when it started to rain the staff asked us dont swim even in the pool which is not fair ,we paid a lot of money but we could not use the facility . the staff are not very kind and polite. they charged also morethan the rate that we expected!
