Booked for two nights but stayed for one night only. Dark, damp and full of fungus. The musquitos keep you company at night. Food at the restaurant is poor. It was the rainy season during our stay but doubt whether things are better during dry season.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The room was clean and of a good size, the only down would be lack of mosquito nets, I highly recommend that they invest in these. Food was very good and staff very attentive and helpful. We could walk to the temple and we used this hotel as our base to go... More

I Recommend it. The room is great, the staff are awesome! Very close to the temple also. You can walk easily or take a tuktuk. Food is also good. You will enjoy it for sure. If you book in the resort it will. Cost you 5$ less than booking.com

We spent three lovely nights at Sundaras Resort and would recommend it to anyone seeking a clean, comfortable and spacious mid-range place to relax in Dambulla. The staff were all very warm and accommodating, with a complimentary tuk tuk ride, delicious 'rice and curry' dinners, and lovely surrounds in which to relax. We found it a very convenient place for... More

The Sundaras is a very lovely bungalow-styled hotel. It is just a 5-10 minute walking distance to the golden and cave temple and with a Tuk Tuk the city center can be reached within a couple of minutes also. It is a great location to start day trips in the cultural triangle. The staff is very friendly and also helps... More

Our stay in Sundaras Resort was very nice. We stayed in an outside room which was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The food in the Restaurant is very good and the staff is very friendly. The daytrip they organized for us was really nice and impressive. Highly recommended!

The location of Sindaras Resort is great, but the lady at the reception was not really polite and professional. We were eaten by mosquitoes since they do not provide any mosquitoes net or any other protection. The food in the restaurant was nice but I would not recommend this place. The price you pay is too high for the service... More

It is a gorgeous place to stay in Dambulla. Great location for daily trips. The staff was kind snd helpful any time of the day. Room was big, bright and spotless clean. Dinner was served in the backyard, tasteful and freshly prepared. Really enjoyed staying at Sundaras resort.

This was my worst stay in Sri Lanka by a long shot. Not only did I pay more than 17 USD for a single dorm bed in a mosquito-ridden room, but the managing lady was unprofessional, nasty and got up and walked off during a conversation. In its one salvation, many of the other workers were smiley, friendly and did... More
