Warm welcome from the hotel manager when we arrived. The room was big enough and very clean. As it’s a beach resort we asked about sun beds but were told that they were broken and they needed to order some more. Overall the stay was fine but it seemed as though they could have done a few simple things to improve the experience. They have a large garden area which is not used, instead the tables are crammed into the ‘restaurant’ area, it would be very simple to move some tables outside for breakfast service and lunch. Breakfast consisted of eggs (poached, scrambled or fried) along with half a tomato and 2 ‘sausages’, there were no questions asking if we were vegetarian (we are) they were just plonked there on the plate Perhaps a ‘happy hour’, so that everyone doesn’t go to the neighbouring bars that offer this. A few simple changes could make this a really nice place on a beautiful beach. A thank you to the hotel manager and especially Dinesh for their hospitality.

What a fantastic spot, just far enough from the central area of Unawatuna to be tranquil and close enough to walk down. If you like the simple things on holiday this is the place for you, a nice breakfast in the morning before you find your spot on the reasonably secluded beach to swim and sunbathe. The sea here is a bit rocky but you soon figure out where to swim to avoid them. The staff are absolutely fantastic, shout out to Dinesh and Mal who are beautiful human beings and very helpful should you need anything. The accommodation is sufficient for the great price they offer. We want to return before we leave Sri Lanka just to see them smile again!

One of the most beautiful locations we stayed at in Sri Lanka . The property is situated just by the beach and has spectacular views from the dining area . We had a very nice time just looking out into the vast ocean and hearing the waves pounding away . The waves come right upto the steps leading to the property . However some maps show this property to be on unawatuna beach but it isn’t . Which was for us a good thing because it’s a little away from the main tourist crowd and rush and beach party so you can relax peacefully if you want to. But it’s also just 5 mins away by tuk tuk or bike to the main tourist area unawatuna beach making it easily accessible when you want to making sure you don’t feel isolated. Rooms are basic but clean and nothing to complain about . Manager was very friendly and helpful too

This is our 2 time visited this hotel ,its nice place and good for family would give 5/5 for the service given by Mr.Pushpamal his a nice and attending, serving drinks and refreshments without asking or extra cost. Also the breakfast is better than in more expensive places. The location is on quieter part of the beach and the hotel has its own queit spot there. It is not the most perfect and housekeeping service and bedding towels are old and rust stain also the service wasn't not like the first visit how ever we love the place we will be back soon ! I believe that staying in the beachfront room would be nicer and overall the place would be total perfection , and thank you Lal for your extra care and professional services Thanks

We stayed here for 3 nights. The second floor room was big, clean, had everything we needed ( fridge, air con,safe, etc) plus had a patio with an Ocean view. Breakfast was great. Staff very friendly and helpful. It’s on a quiet and in my opinion the prettiest part of the beach, right next to the rope swing. It was a very nice and relaxing 3 days, would definitely stay here again!

This message for Tour Operators / Tourists drivers. The staff cheat on guest ..The price showed 6800 Rupees ( Included highway toll) from Unawatuna to Colombo airport .But this is not actual price ..Tour operators, tourists drivers think about it before going to this hotel with your clients ..මේ guest house එක කරන උන් අපි එක්ක යන clients ට අඩු ගනන් කියලා අපිව කපනවා....මේ වගෙ බල්ලන්ගේ තැන් වලට යද්දි පරිස්සමින් .

We cannot comment on the accommodation as we only had lunch here. Positives: - great spot right on the beach front - great curry! One of our favourite rice & curries from our trip in Sri Lanka. - while we were eating we saw giant sea turtles swimming in the beach, if the weather/waves had have been better you could have swam to them Negatives: - We were the only patrons in the restaurant when we went and staff were not really interested in serving us, we had to seek service many times when we wanted something instead of them coming over. If service had have been better, this would have been an excellent review instead of very good.
