Chamara, Jayantha and Shantha were so welcoming and kind - nothing was too much trouble. Our room was comfortable and spacious with powerful air conditioning, and there were three cold bottles of water in the fridge in... More

Everything is perfect here! Great rooms with lovely modern bathrooms, great location right on the beach, delicious food and very friendly helpful staff. I felt very safe as a lone female and very welcomed. I extended my stay from 5 to 8 nights it was so good!

We lived Neela's from the moment we arrived, there is a warm friendly atmosphere especially from the manager who is the owners son. The room we had was large, comfortable and great air-conditioning. The restaurant food is well priced and tasty. The breakfast is included which is great and the sun loungers outside are perfect. You can put all food... More
