I've been to Sri Lanka twice and each time I've travelled to Unawatuna, this place ticks the boxes. I love it because its cheap, the boy who manages it is super friendly and its in a great spot, across the road from the beach. Our room was around 1200 rupees and it was really spacious with a double bed with mosquito net, a wardrobe, clean bathroom, ceiling fan and its own balcony with partial sea views! The rooms are old and maybe due for a paint job but they are clean and have character. It's up the end of the beach, close to the Stupa, restaurants and shops. I would definitely recommend this place to the easy going, budget conscience traveller!
