Positive Reviews

Excellent Honeymoon Destination

Located on the shore, with a spacious swimming pool, Amethyst Resort Passikuddah is an ideal destination for a romantic honeymoon. The spacious guest rooms are air-conditioned, bright and cheerful, with all the amenities required for an enjoyable and memorable stay. Guests note that the resort provides plenty of sun loungers and parasols and the view of the bay and golden sand beach is magnificent.

Happy, Helpful Staff

Friendly, helpful, accommodating and attentive are comments guest note about the outstanding service at the resort. Guests note that requests are processed promptly and that the entire staff went out of their way to make guests feel comfortable and welcome. All requests are met with a big smile and the staff in the restaurant is happy to prepare special diet requests. Guest remark that they had a fabulous time and will recommend the venue to family and friends.

Close To The Action

Guests advise the resort is quiet and laid back, relaxing and restful but easily accessible to public transportation and just feet from the beach and the town centre with unique shops, local points of interest, fine dining and nightly entertainment. Guests especially enjoy the swim-up pool bar.

Negative Reviews

Food Uninspired

Although the food was fresh and tasty, presentation was uninspired and the buffet featured the same dishes daily. Guest said they would like a bit more variety in the menu but that the food choices did not detract for their overall enjoyment of the resort.

Room For Improvement

Guests remark that they had a fine time, but note that the waiters in the restaurant were not as friendly as they could be and seemed rushed and overly worked. The food is described as adequate but not outstanding.

Crowded Beach

Guests remark that they enjoyed the private sun-terrace and swimming pool, but that the waters on the beach were crowded as the resort adjoins a heavily used public beach.
