Clean, neat and comfortable room. Had air conditioning, fan and mini-fridge. Staff very friendly. A few solo travellers staying there longer term to chat with. Brilliant breakfast served everyday. A short walk from the beach (less than 5 minutes) and the main strip of restaurants can be reached in about 5 minutes too, however this does involve walking along an...

Everything was alright. The room was big and spacious and clean. It's a small walk to the Main Street where you can find lots of restaurants. We didn't go to the beach since it was raining in the afternoon, but it's only a short walk away. We really enjoyed eating breakfast in the open cabana/hut! :)

About 200 metres down an alley to Arugam Bay this hotel was far enough away from the main road but very close to the beach. The rooms were very good. Clean and everything worked. The staff were helpful. Kannan our tuk tuk driver who lives nearby took us on a lagoon safari and tuk tuk safari which were very good....

We found the web descriptions deceptive in that the location isn't good. Located behind and within a local residential area where the roads are simple tracks. There are just four rooms. Rooms just ok. Complete but sparse. Staff are very nice, and reasonable food was simple acceptable local fare, nicely served in palapa. Worst thing is location, walk to beach...

We arrived at Coco Bay and we greeted by very helpful staff. We were shown to our room which was lovely and modern, a/c and very clean. Little table and chairs outside for us to sit at. We walked 2 mins to the beach which was amazing! One of the best beach resorts I've ever been to. We decided to...

Beautiful surroundings, quiet and only a few minutes walk from the beach. Most things on the main street are 5-10 minutes away. The staff is super helpful and friendly and the breakfast is one of the best I had while travelling in Sri Lanka. Rooms are large and clean. The only minor issue I had was with the metal rooms,...

We stayed at the Coco Bay Hotel during off season were not many people are at Arugam. We enjoyed our stay there very much! The rooms are very comfortable and AC is also available. Bathroom is standard and the breakfast is also good. The beach is a 5-10 min walking distance. Recommended!

This small hotel is an oasis close to the beach (2 mins walk). The rooms are big, comfortable and very clean with A/C (noisy, but absolutely no problem with ear-plugs). You have a porch to sit and relax in front of the rooms with a view into the gardens. The owner and staff are very friendly and offer help with...

We stayed at this place for one night. We were mainly focused on the safari to Kumana National Park and we just wanted a tidy place to spend the night. Overall the place is great. It is a small hotel with just five rooms but the rooms are in excellent condition compared to the money they charge. The rooms are...
