Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for being such a great host and a wonderful tour in the Hotel. exotic location of our vacation became even more beautiful
Staffs are very friendly and good service. Thank you so much for everything.
I was at GoldiSands with my friend for two weeks quarantined. We felt so much at ease from the time we checked in thanks to them being well organised handling the whole process. Everything was absolutely great from spacious rooms, clean linens, beautiful views and delicious food. Super service from the hotel staff and the team from forces on duty, always made sure our stay was peaceful, safe and comfortable. Thank you!
I was at Hotel Goldi Sands for my mandatory quarantine period.
Although I was confined to a room, the hotel’s staff (each and every one of them that I’ve encountered) definitely walked an extra mile to make the guest’s stay as comfortable as possible.
Due to Covid, the hotel was short-staffed, but that didn’t mean there was any compromise in the level of service offered. The staff cared for all of my needs, from extra water bottles, tea bags, milk, special meal requests and even herbal drinks!
Food was offered in the room with desert and there was a very good variety of main meals and deserts, bought to the room on time and in significantly large (too large for me) packets. Meals were mainly carbohydrates (rice, milk rice, bread, roast bread, stringhoppers) with either chicken or tuna. A good selection of vegetables were served too!
I’ve got a Deluxe ground floor room on the new wing with partial sea view. Being on a ground floor room helps create an illusion that you can walk out (but you are not allowed to leave the room). So, if you are going for mandatory quarantine, may be consider asking for a ground floor room.
In terms of ensuring that every need of the guest is met, I must mention the F&B Manager, Mr Adrian De Zilva, who ALWAYS ensured that all of my needs were looked after, called me once or twice every day, offering a chance to discuss and ensure that 100% of my requirements were met during this time of isolation.
The staff member (Fonseka) who bought my food everyday was polite, professional and prompt, tending to every extra need, always with a smile. I am sure it is an extreme challenge for you to be serving while wearing something that looks like a spacesuit!
I wish every staff member all the best and hope they will be able serve regular guests soon. I will be back one day, as a tourist.
Maintenance staff was very helpful in sorting out my broadband,as I worked remotely. The speed was sufficient for Teams meetings and file uploads.
One thing I would avoid is the PCR test from Nawaloka, it was an absolute disaster, kept me awake and had to make many expensive phone calls to all departments within Nawaloka just to get the PCR results after 2 days although it was advertised as being available within 36 hrs.
