Can't even sleep on the bed and use the bathroom. It's so dusty and full of lizards poops. bad dinner which costs unbelievable price from the owner. The room electric fan was even broken. Not recommend for solo travelers especially girls.

Wow!! I came back to Little Dream after 16years. I'm so happy to say it is still the beautiful paradise I remember. I've traveled a lot since, but for 16years I've been telling friend this is my favorite place, and especially the food is awesome. The great news is the food is still prepared by the owners sister and is... More

I stayed in this place for 5 days last summer and it was amazing! The owner and his wife are lovely. They made me feel like home and the food was just amazing. The vibe is just so relaxed and the area is just gorgeous. There are some bad comments on this site about this place a few years ago.... More

After we took our baggage on our own to the rooms, we saw how dirty everything is. In The bathroom were dead Insects, everywhere... More

Really good location near the lake into the jungle, but for 2 night we spent really too much (not like the owner said) and the room was really unconfortable. It's been a shame because the location is amazing and food are so good, but not the price and the accomodation.

Nice place, but the cleaning should be better. We stay for two night and we was planning to have a dinner. After the breakfast, because of the poor cleaning of the dishes, we decide different, and we said it to the manager. Morover, when we checked out, they billed us a price higher than what they said us when we... More

Please do not stay here if you are a lone female traveller or group of girls. I stayed here with my boyfriend for 4 nights, the owners son Ravi is the biggest creep ever, he was constantly hassling my boyfriend for smokes and made us feel very uncomfortable by sitting and staring at us from the hammock outside our room...

this could be a perfect place to stay if it weren't for the horrible guy who runs this place. his wife is very sweet and caring and also a delicious cook. but unfortunately her husband has no sense of respectful hospitality. he sat next to us for the bigger part of the evening without saying anything but only staring at...

The place looks nice from outside, but the bathroom was very dirty, and the location is not convenient at all. My friend and I were planning to stay two nights, but did not like the place and decided to move on.

We spent 7 nights at little dream and it was our best stay in sri lanka. Ac rooms are very nice, with a beautiful garden and relaxing areas. The location is wonderful: about 8 kms from chaotic dambulla and easyly reachable by bus (60 rps - stop just in front of the guest house) or by tuk tuk (the guesthouse... More
