I found some insects in my bed and sweated like hell because the fan was not enough

Dear Ann-Kathrin, thanks for your review, sorry for this inconvenience and for this hot weather at the period you came - but are you sure that ceiling fan was not turned off (maybe occasionally by another guest)? Also, if you would just tell the staff about this, we would easily move you to another room and bed (if you want) and provide you with additional stand fan :) Hope you enjoyed Sri Lanka, wish you happy travels!
