“Best Vacation !!!!”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Family of 9 spent 3 nights/4 days here. Almost did not go as there were no reviews on TripAdvisor. This is the first review but don't let that steer you away from a quality place!

Location:
2.5 hours from Colombo airport and about 20-30 minutes away from Galle. Right on the beach. During high tide, the waves touch the wall of the villa. Absolutely beautiful and stunning location, setting and views. Located on the main road, occasional sound of train/car. Not a bother.

Beach:
Not ideal for swimming as it is quite rocky. Good for surfing (surfing school is a 5 min walk on the beach from the villa). There are a couple of spots for swimming in the sea. Safe, clean, tidy, gorgeous. Villa to beach is a few feet!

Staff:
Kumar and his team are what make Iyla Villa special. Fantastic service and personal attention and care. They knew what we wanted before we knew we wanted it! Always smiling, ever happy to serve and never trying to fleece you for money! Probably the best service we have had in a long time.

Villa:
Beautiful 5 bedroom villa with expansive sea views. Lovely breeze. Went in April when Sri Lanka was hot but it was fine with the breeze. Lovely large pool. Books, DVDS, TV, music system, board games, pool floats, etc. All possible things are provided for at Iyla Villa.

Lovely place for a family trip or one with friends. The staff at the villa took the effort of organizing a great barbecue for us and always served us with a smiling face! Will certainly visit again!
