Pros: We got the forest dwelling which came with a full sized pool. Its beautiful and very private. The property has beautiful surroundings with birds and natural habitat. Food was delicious and breakfast was generous.
Cons: The layout of the forest dwelling is rather awkward as the bathroom is on a different floor frm the bedroom. There was also a stain at the bottom of the pool which needs to be looked at. Maybe the hotel need to rearrange some of the furniture and also the minibar facilities so that its more convenient for the guests.

Pros: The facility is very well decorated with the concept of 'elephants.' The staff is super-friendly and very knowledgeable; whenever I had questions they were happy to respond to them. When I need tuk-tuk or safari ride they immediately satisfied my needs.

Pros: We had 3 nights in this hotel in October 2019.The location is excellent with amazing views of Lion Rock which is 10 minutes away by car. The staff in the restaurant,front of house and the room boy were very friendly and provided and excellent service. The food was buffet style with a tremendous choice of Sri Lankan,Chinese and Western dishes.The swimming pool is a good size and a good temperature with fresh bathing towels provided and plenty of sun loungers. The main reason for coming to this hotel is to visit Lion Rock or Pidurangala (a must for great views of Lion Rock) or a day exploring the ancient city of Polonnaruwa. The rooms were very clean with a warm orange decor as was the bathroom.The hotel is surrounded by mature trees and has a very tranquil feel to it. Sigiriya is a tiny hamlet with a few stores (no ATM) and that is about it.Having said this it is a good base to visit the sites mentioned above.

The restaurant, particularly the Sri Lankan food was authentic and delicious, you couldn't ever starve here. Secluded and quiet. We stayed in room #1 which was very clean, tidy and had a comfortable bed.
Cons: There was almost nothing to dislike. The location could make it a little bit tricky for some because you're probably 2km from nearest restaurant (if you wanted to find outside the hotel), but given we had a driver it was no issue. There were some power outages but nothing significant. Didn't like having to order my food so far in advance.

Really added to a great experience in Sigiriya and felt like you were surrounded by wildlife (monkeys playing by the pool etc) - would definitely recommend staying here.
Cons: Very misleading when booking a superior cottage. This is advertised as a double bed but this is actually two singles pushed together which felt pretty sneaky & the room was very small/dark. We complained and were upgraded for free but be aware of this. Especially due to the price.

2.5 Mediocre
Cons: It was in an isolated location. Full of mosquitos, rooms smelt dank and cupboards smelt of cockroaches. There was a frog in the bathroom. And when we decided to move somewhere else for the next 2 nights the hotel refused to refund the payment for the days we did not stay there. Terrible!

6.3 Good
Cons: Quality of food was not good, instead of a buffet, why not cooking fresh meals? Then you have less foodwaste and fresh food.
7.1 Good
Pros: We spent two nights over New Years Eve at Amaara. The hotel can best be summed up as almost... The rooms were clean and spacious, but not with any level of luxury. The grounds were really quite lovely, however when the property describes the villas as set in the forest, what they mean is villas all in a row, backing onto forest. And the food - we surprisingly had one of the best Sri Lankan fish curries we’ve had so far on the trip. But the buffet (including the NYE gala buffet) features several mediocre attempts at Western food. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and we have no complaints there. All in all, this place was almost excellent. There is certainly nothing wrong with the hotel, it just isn’t to the standard we expected for the price paid.

Pros: The tree house with music and barbeque night..
Cons: Everything was fine but we were alone.. people should come back to their normal life style to enjoy such a lovely places like amaara..
7.9 Good
Pros: Breakfast was excellent and was made available extra early to leave early to Sirigyia.
Cons: Only stayed one night, dinner (beafsteak and tiramisu) was not so good.
7.9 Good
Pros: New hotel, very clean, beautiful entrance and Swimming pool Staff were very nice and kind, some stuff were forgotten in our room, they were quite fast getting back (1st night no towels, second night no refill of soap) Facilities are great with the pool and we took a massage, very good!
Cons: Disappointment was the location. We stayed 3 nights and we were isolated, nothing to see nor walk around once you are back to the hotel. But for 1 or 2 nights should be fine as the place is quiet. Last thing was the food. Again I think for 3 nights because of the location, we had to eat at the hotel, and honestly for this type of hotel food quality could be much better. And quality is one thing, but the rates applied were really too expensive. Some dish were invoices 2500/2700 Rp and were not nice. So my feeling is because we were “blocked” in the hotel, price applied were high because anyway you can’t go anywhere else. So effort on the food or price to be applied.

7.1 Good
Pros: This is a cheap good value homestay, it is quite a basic house, but the room was good with air con and Mossi net and WiFi . It is very near Lion rock ticket office, 0.8 mile. The host arranged a good jeep safari for half a day easy to deal with and saw over 50 elephants.
Cons: There were problems with the plumbing, no water at times, took a very long time for the loo to fill, warm shower did not work properly, cold one was ok.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Located near Sigiriya, bus stop. You can take the bus from Dambulla to here. You also can walk to Sigiriya heritage on foot.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: It's within walking distance from the rock and Pidurangala, away from the main road but well signposted. First room I was shown had mold but it was changed after pointing that out (and next morning, the owner prepared to paint it).
Cons: The owner is a Tuktuk driver and would like to sell some rides - but he's OK with one not being interested. There really isn't much to complain about given the price.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic location walking distance to lion rock, just off main strip of restaurants. Very warm and friendly family, great food! Very nice homestay. Room really big with 2 double beds and mosquito nets
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location. Good AC needed in the heat! Comfy beds and a good welcome to the rooms. Filling breakfast both days after a walk!

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff were a really lovely family that were always smiling & willing to help. Their son is so cute & full of energy - although loud sometimes, as children are. The father was very helpful to us as we were staying during the Colombo bombings and he helped provide us with information and assistance, such as travel advice & taxi transfers. Location is perfect for climbing Sigiriya - just down the road. Breakfast was tasty & enough. Same for their restaurant menu.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great pool and the room was a good size with a great air conditioner
Cons: WiFi was not very good
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We had the opportunity to stay at the Hideout since we got a good deal. We absolutely loved it and admired the perseverance of the owner and the staff during a difficult tourist season. Sri Lanka is now safe and it would be a mistake to cancel your travel plan while the situation has normalised and the country needs tourism more than ever. The location is perfect to go to the Lion Rock, to Polonaruwa and Dambulla. The swimming pool and the garden are lovely. Our 3 kids loved it.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: - incredible swimming pool, clean, perfect after temple/rock visits - nice little cottage with 4 real beds - good breakfast and dinner - they can book safaris/trips with local drivers
Cons: - note that it is far from the « city » (hideout!) - our most expensive hotel in SL
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed for 2 nights at The Hideout in Sigiriya and could easily have stayed longer. The lush well designed gardens surrounding a clean pool made this a heavenly escape from the hustle and bustle... The staff were friendly and very courteous and the owner is an absolute gem of a gentleman. The treehouses were fantastic and in the evening we sat on our balcony and looked over onion fields towards Sigiriya Rock listening to peacocks calling and birds singing...
9.2 Excellent
Pros: - pool - staff - welcome drink - balcony - mosquito net around bed
6.3 Good
Pros: Really friendly staff especially the boys and girls that served us. Friendly owner and a clean accomodation. Swimmingpool was great as well as the breakfast that was served with some specialities from Sri Lanka. View was beautifull.Diner was good.
Cons: The regular price for the family tree house was way too expensive for what was offered. The owner should invest in the treehouse if he wants to continue to rent it out for the price of €450 for 2 nights for a family of 5. A rack outside for towels was unstable, the crane was loose, hot water was not really hot and wifi was insuffiencient. It really is a nice place but the cost should be much lower in comparison to other locations with same price where the interior is more luxuriuos. I understand that it is a rural place but invest to make it more nice and worth the money. So great place but too expensive.
7.1 Good
Pros: The swimming pool, very attentive staff
Cons: Rooms should be “refreshed” and not really clean
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel owner and her husband were very kind to us. Satisfying breakfast was here. Welcome drink was pretty good.

Pros: The staff was very friendly and accommodated the requests to the best of their ability. We came to the hotel early and they provided a room immediately. Few issues were there in the initial room, but they gave us a different room.
Cons: TV not working. Pool cab be cleaner. I guess the recent drop in tourists to Sri Lanka due to Easter attack may have affected their business heavily. Looks like they are just recovering from it. There was no menu for food. Limited choices available. So, we ate outside the hotel.
