The room is very comfortable and comes with separate verandah. The beds are made every day when you are out and towels are changed daily. But the room has no character and no attention was paid to wall decorations. I'm surprised why this place is called a resort. The place is small, no garden and no pool! I expected a... More

We did as most do, stay in Damballa to explore the cultural triangle. If at all possible, drive through Dambulla and don't stay. The Sanduras resort might be the best but it's a bad bunch! The room is large but unfinished and shabby in many places. Mosquito net provided but not clean or very useful with so many holes! We... More

First things first - the guidebooks are right about Dambulla, it's a dusty frontier town with limited amenity beyond tourists passing through for 1 night for Sigiriya and the Cave Temples. At this budget, Sundaras is the best you can do in Dambulla - perfectly comfortable, one of the better places we stayed in Sri Lanka, but not quite the... More

Great location and stuff is very friendly. We stayed there for three nights while traveling through sri lanka and were very pleased with this hotel. Rooms are quite clean and spacious. Bathroom is average. Location is great as it is right next to the dambulla cave temples. You can arrange a car in the hotel which was very convenient and... More

By chance I chose this hotel on booking.com. Was very pleased when arrived. Stayed for 2 nights. The rooms are really clean, the staff is client oriented, wifi works in each corner of the hotel, HOT water)))) Three pillows per person. Breakfast was included. I liked it very much. Main advantage is location (3 minutes walk from Cave temple, 15... More

finding Sundaras was a bit tough, google maps don't have it located in the correct spot but one phone call to the front desk and that's sorted! Great place, super friendly staff. Got in at about 8 pm, clean rooms, clean sheets and bathroom. I stayed in a double room with AC and en suite bathroom for $67 for the... More

Sunduras resort is a nice and clean place to stay a couple of days. Our room was spacious and very clean, had air conditioning, warm water and was well-maintained. We had our own little porch to sit on and relax in the evening which was very nice. The staff were friendly and helpful. Somehow however, the place lacked atmosphere in... More

We loved our stay in Dambulla and we loved The Sundaras Resort. It had a laid back charm where nothing was a problem and everything we asked for was done with a big smile from the staff. We stayed two nights at the beginning of September which was a quiet time for the hotel, but it meant we had wonderful,... More

Large, clean room, as is the bathroom. Very friendly and helpfull owner and staff. The owner speaks english very well and seems to know his way around the world. He offers fair advice on planning the rest of your trip if you ask. Maybe he'll even make you a gin & tonic on the house when you arrive in the... More
