We enjoyed the nice service and lunch buffet in the hotel's restaurant during our stay in Unawatuna. The service was really good and the food fairly good.
A pasta, soup and grilled meat/fish corners are available together with local Sri Lankan dishes and other Asian...More

With this place, it really depends on what you are looking for and what your budget is. I'd suggest that its probably the largest and best hotel on Unawatuna beach? But there are some accomodations on the beach that are awful (Although to be fair...More

The snorkeling at Unawatuna is not horrible. At least not for this novice and his family. You can book a boat for about 40$ for three hours. This included equipment for 2 adults and 2 children. I think the going rate is 15... More
The snorkeling at Unawatuna is not horrible. At least not for this novice and his family. You can book a boat for about 40$ for three hours. This included equipment for 2 adults and 2 children. I think the going rate is 15$ per person. You can negotiate to bring you to Jungle beach, the ship wreck and the rocks.
The coral is non existent, but the rocks/reef has abundant fish. You can see a variety of fish, but of course the visibility all depends on the wind/current. I can't even start naming all the fish, because I don't know their names, but there are a variety and they are numerous. I would say that I say at least 20 different types of fish, and more than I can count in total.
