I stayed here for 3 months and it was the perfect place to be. The owners have been running the place for many years and are very friendly. They are always there to help with any questions or problems. The hotel is amidst palm trees with lots of squirrels, colourful parrots and monkeys to watch. You can choose from cheaper,... More

We booked a basic room which we were very happy with. There are newer, bigger rooms, some with sea views but we preferred being at ground level in the garden. The beach is so close and we enjoyed having the cool shade of our patio available too. Our hosts were wonderful. Helpful in every way but in no way imposing.... More

After reading all the good reviews of this place on tripadvisor we were shocked to see the place. The non-AC room was extremely basic; the walls full of gaps for bugs to fly in; the bathroom dirty and the toilet had no flushing water. We moved to an AC room which was slightly more pleasant (still not totally clean) but... More

We had a pleasant stay in the sea view ac deluxe room. Sam was very helpful and organised a great value whale watching trip where we saw a blue whale. He also had friendly trust worthy Tuk Tuk drivers on hand with local rates and I'm sure he'd be able to help organise anything else you'd like. A note of... More

Ok, quite near the beach, you just cross the road and reasonable prices for Sri Lanka that is. I lived quite high up i a sort of bungalow where the view was good.

We stayed in a room with fan only (regretted not taking the air-Con one considering how hot it got during our stay), the room was spacious and clean, same thing for the... More
