We did not stay at the hotel, but we ate several wonderful meals at the beachfront restaurant. wonderful food, much better and more authentic than at our hotel which was 30 meters away. This is where you should go if you want a good massage or a honest and caring TukTuk drivers. Jeewana, the owner's brother, administers these two things... More

Nice restaurant just in front of one of the best wild beaches of Sri Lanka. The owners are very polite and make everything which is in their hands, to make their clients happy. I will definately go back and highly recommend it.

Janu's Paradise rest is decent place to enjoy beach and nice food. The only problem is noise from the main road and railway passing just behind the house (except two new rooms in the courtyard). The rest is worth the money you pay. You can also enjoy sea food from different fish, prawns, lobster... depending on the avaialbility of fresh... More

We passed along this not very appealing front of this guesthouse, but were surprised in a very positive way about the people coordinating the place and the food that was served. Maybe a bit pricy, but it was worth it!

We stayed at another place a few steps from it that doesn't serve lunch, so we ate at Janus'. The food was great, especially the grilled fish and the calamari. It did take quite some time to cook, but it's all fresh and we could use the pool while waiting. The staff is very nice and the hotel looks small... More

Let me start out by setting expectations. There is no hot water and the cold water pressure leaves a lot to be desired. There is no air conditioning unless you get Room 3, no WIFI and no complimentary bottle of water each day. (Fortunately there is an internet cafe across the road, although I didn't use it so I don't... More
