This resort is a perfect location to go see the dolphins. Right on the beach, for a swimm and a walk. The sea is safe . Cabana simple but ok. Something different. The lady owner is a good host. 3 course dinner was fresh and taste full, fish directly from the boat. Freshly made bread from wood oven. Wine and... More

A great place to get away from it all for a few days. The economy rooms are basic, just a bed, mosquito net, and cold water shower in the bathroom. But the view from the room makes up for it, straight out over the beach. Dinner was freshly cooked every night, and a great choice of fish and vegetable Sri... More

We originally booked here to go diving, and then decided to try out kite surfing instead. The owner is amazing, offering great advice and acting as everyone's temporary mother. The food was excellent, with a daily change of ideas. The accommodation we chose was basic, although there are rooms with aircon etc offering more comfort. We didn't have hot water,... More

Very nice place. Very friendly staff. The woman, who is apparently the head of the hotel, speaks excellent English. She can organize various excursions. Not 5 stars, because there is a lack of tables in the Restaurant where there is less wind. And in the rooms for 45 USD there was no hot water :'( Normally you get it in... More

Thanks for your review. We appreciate your time. The $25 rooms are our Economy rooms which is a Hybrid between a room and a camping tent. The security of a room is there, and yes (only at night), if the lights are turned on you may see in. But on the positive side, it's a very popular room because the... More

The place look ok, we visited two rooms and this was ok too, but when we asked about lodging our driver this became difficult. They could provide a room closeby but refused to give him a plate of rice while there is no way to eat around. The person who receptioned us was just ok, not friendly as most places... More

It's very difficult to respond to this since the reviewer didn't actually stay at Diyamba. What I can say is that many drivers and tour guides in Sri Lanka are looking to get a commission from each place of lodging that they take travelers to. We refuse to falsely increase our prices and pay a commission to the drive/guide at... More
