We stayed at Neela's for 3 night's and had a great time. Clean and simple rooms, and friendly and helpful straff. The hotel is situated right by the Narigama beach, which is much nicer than Hikkaduwa beach. Next door is also a nice restaurant.

Clean and spacious room, very very good service, friendly and cleaver staff and they will help you with anything you need, also good info about going to somewhere else. Rooms are a bit more expensive than few years ago, but they are worthly.

Stayed for two nights. Service was incredible and got the hotel for a good price as it is off season and we are volunteers. The rooms had aircon and very comfy beds. The hotel was about 2km away from the main part of town but was right on the beach. Wifi was adequate. Service could not have been any better... More

I stayed at Neela's with two friends for three nights in March, and we felt right at home from the moment we arrived.

Our room was comfortable and spacious with powerful air conditioning, and there were three cold bottles of water in the fridge in... More
