The staff are very helpful. The hotel is perfect for if you want total chill out. The pool was lovely as the beach is not soft sand and the current is strong. The view is lovely. The diving school is really good

I staid in Ypsylon Resort Last January. It was a nice hotel - very good for the value i paid - and comfortable. Right on a nice beach, with a pool on the back..not bad at all. Manager (Dagmar) is very nice, kind and welcoming, I also did some dives in the Dive Center, that was cool and quite cheep... More

Stayed here for 10 days in January 2015. I'd eaten at the hotel during a previous visit but not stayed there however based on it's location I decided to book my stay when I came back on my own. I'd contacted the hotel beforehand and requested a room on the first floor just for peace of mind and that's what... More

Was planning a two night stay here but the whole place felt soulless. On two separate occasions I sat in the restaurant and beachside and no one came take me order. Few staff passed by buy couldn't take a hint I was after something. Aircon is a must. Rooms are sweltering hot without. Sheets felt dirty and I didn't want... More

This is a seaside property. On the side of a beach! Not very friendly reception. Very matter of fact but not really knowledgeable. Rooms are very average to put it mildly. But good thing they face the beach. Many do not have air conditioning. It can get hot, and ceiling fan is of no use inside mosquito net. There was... More

This resort was by far the worst resort I have ever visited in my life. In a country like Sri Lanka where all other locations you feel like home, this place will be a reference to my worst experience ever. I was treated as if they were paying me for staying there. I had an experience with one of my... More

Recently back from a stay at Beruwala where I was able to enjoy the multi dive package at Ypsylon dive school. Staff were really knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The school was well organised and I was really well looked after. The dive guides always found the best stops with plenty of fish life. I would really recommend using this school... More

Not only is the price right, but so is the proximity to the ocean. Why pay double and more at the nearby larger resorts that are farther from the sea? The employees are helpful and guided tours to area attractions are available.

We travelled all around Sri Lanka and this hotel was by far the best of the lot (at the same cost as all the others). The beach is pristine (unlike many other Sri Lankan beaches)and the rooms modern & clean. My only slight gripe is that there are not quite enough sun loungers to go round and, this hotel having...
