We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our trip. We had booked a king room with balcony, however when we turned up we were put into the budget room with no balcony. When we went outside to ask why we didn’t have the room we booked, they called the manager. When the manager arrived he just said that there was a problem with the bathroom so we couldn’t have our room (but that it would definitely be fixed by checkout time the next day, but not before, which we thought was a bit odd). The manager didn’t apologise at all, and only after we said repeatedly that we were obviously not paying the price for the king room for the night that we stayed in the budget room, did he accept that we could pay less. Very poor service, as they put us in a budget room and just hoped that we wouldn’t notice and pay the full price. The hotel itself was lovely, and when we finally went to the king room, it was fabulous and very spacious! The breakfast was good and location was great for the beach. The rest of the staff were lovely (especially the gentleman who greeted us and served breakfast), it’s just such a shame that they are let down by a bad manger.

I can't recommend this guest house enough - beautifully clean and the staff are so lovely. Great location within easy walking distance to the beach, bars and local restaurants. All staff were very obliging and more than willing to arrange local currency, excursions and offer advice on things to do. Great breakfast and all round very good value for money. We were very well looked after - Thank you for making our holiday!

Room Tip: 1st floor and above

The villa was exceptionally clean with a nice staff of people who went out of their way to make us comfortable and answer our many questions. The breakfast on the porch each morning was exactly as we ordered. Location of the hotel was perfect for walking to the beach and town.

Red Lobster Villas

The beautiful villa is more like a home stay with a nice breakfast included. Our room was a nice size with a comfortable bed, even for my tall boyfriend. The bathroom was nice as well. Our room was on the second floor and led out to a wrap around porch. Directly outside our room was a sitting area and another common balcony with a table. We ate breakfast each morning on the lower level patios. We were served a European breakfast of coffee, fruit, bread and choice of eggs. It was a clean place to stay, with a good air conditioner. The villa is a good value.

The staff was always friendly and kind. One staff member offered to take me to buy small supplies on his scooter.

Unfortunately, we were visiting in August and the ocean water was too choppy to snorkel. We were also staying at the villa during a time of construction and so workers were present throughout the day and the construction sounds began at 8:30AM.

Overall, I recommend Villa Red Lobster, but be sure to research the best season to visit and contact the villa ahead of time to be sure the construction is complete.

This family run villa is great value for money. The rooms are comfortable and clean. They offer a good breakfast which is cooked to order. Freshly squeezed juices or a fruit plate plus the cooked eggs and toast.
The owner is very friendly. Wifi is sporadic but we have found this across Sri Lanka. The owner has just installed a new router when we were there which might help.
Mosquitos are an issue but all the beds have excellent nets.
Great, quiet location with easy walking access to restaurants and the beach.
To be recommended.
