This is a great place; close to the beach (you can hear the waves from your room), but reasonably priced, unlike a lot of other beach accommodation close by. Staff member Bobi is so helpful and works so hard, he really makes the place come alive. I stayed in a great room with a big wooden terrace; very peaceful.

Do ignore all bad reviews of this place, the bad reviewers are obviously not in it for the people. Me and my partner stayed here and made great friends with Dinu and the guys! For the price we were paying for our room we had all we needed, a bed, toilet,shower and mozzy net. What more do you need? Your...

We spent 3 beautiful weeks on Sri Lanka and this was the worst place where we stayed. Dirty rooms,unfriendly, noisy people, the price was high and the owner is a terrible person !!He sent us on a whale watching trip and we almost died there. The sea was dirty and everybody was sick but the owner did not care.

I arrived with my partner and met my parents and brother there. The staff were extremely friendly and the rooms where we stayed were new, very clean and in a great location (my father, brother and I are all experienced surfers and the location is right were you paddle out). The food was delicious whether ordering authentic Sri Lankan or...

This is a lovely resort - ignore the terrible reviews, from possibly opinionated tourists looking for western styled accommodation. Great price, authentic feel - and of you suggest seafood you would like he will seek out for you. Dino is a lovely man, and the family are lovely and attentive. Consideration to culture and friendliness will always get you better...

We stayed there only for one night. Rooms were dirty and smelly, prices expensive comparing to other accommodation. Restaurant is totally overrated, dirty dishes and rancid fish. People are not friendly at all, they look only for money. Unique plus: very close to the beach

On the beach location, very good price, great dinner by the Mama of the house, friendly laid back atmosphere. We got the second floor balcony room which is probably the best room. It was all perfect accept there was no hot water (I don't mind that in a tropical climate but some people will) and the room was simply not...

We are a family of 5 (adult children). We had a most amazing stay at Dinus. The rooms were large, the food great but most of all you could not ask for a better host than Dino. Nothing was too much trouble - he helped us organize whale watching, buy gem stones, would have done cooking classes with Mama but...
