Excellent food; good accommodation; lovely hotel staff, friendly and very efficient. Very well organised hotel - they did quite a few parties, etc. in different areas of the hotel which did not impinge on other guests.
Entertainment was pretty good.
Husband didn't like the water aerobics because of the loud music, but it only lasted for about an hour. Not a big problem.
Being a wine lover, the wine wasn't special, but you got used to it!!! All the spirits were good and the beer. Quite a lot of tipping expected, but only small amounts.
What a wonderful holiday, we went with two friends, and none of us could fault it. We loved Marawila Resort, the grounds with beautiful trees and flowering shrubs looked after on a daily basis by staff, making it easy to swim, sunbathe, be in the sun or out of it. Loads of birds and chipmunks who would feed out of your hand.
We went on an overnight trip to Elephant Orphanage and Kandy, which was wonderful - first day probably a bit long, but well worth it. We stayed in a hotel in the hills above Kandy where the views were stunning. That was our most tourist bit, as we so enjoyed the facilities at Club Palm Bay we didn't move very far.
Now torn with going somewhere different next time or back here!!! For info ages were 59 and 3 x 65.
