Myself and boyfriend stayed here for a week and we absolutley loved it. It is in the most beautiful location, overlooking the ocean, golden beaches and palm trees. After a tiresome journey we arrived and met with a warm welcome by the lovely, funny friendly staff and a refreshing complimentry drink. Our room was an Ocean veiw balcony room and... More

I like the Sunbeach, I did not love it. Maybe it being the end of the season and the staff were taking it easy. The rooms are nice in a minimal beach kind of way. They are not the most clean, but being on a backpack vacation, nor was I. It does have a great view and nice breeze from... More

A fantastic week-long stay, we would definitely come back. Our downstairs room was basic but with everything you would need and was clean. To wake up and walk straight out on to the beach was a complete luxury and, coupled with the helpful and friendly staff and excellent Sri Lankan food (remember to order string hoppers the night before for...

We stayed here three nights as an older couple plus a brother so went for an upstairs 2 bedrooms suite. Very reasonable.The rooms were clean and adequate just the bathroom could have done with a good pressure washing but bearable. Room servicing was not daily which was fine for us and was offered. Had a lovely balcony with seating area... More

We stayed at Sunbeach in January and found it a very average hotel. If you are staying on the lower floor beware of the echoing noise that travels along the corridor. Throughout the night we were woken by doors slamming, people knocking on each other's doors and loud talking. The TV is located at the front where the corridor begins... More

There are several issues raised in this letter. In terms of noise i the corridor to the rooms downstairs – usually our guests are very considerate and we have few complaints of people enjoying themselves. There are rarely are noise issues at Sunbeach and if we are told we are happy to have a diplomatic word with the other guests... More

Very good food and you cant get any closer to the surfspots on the beach whitout getting wet. The staff is very friendly and you feel more invited to someones home instead of a room at a hotel. Our son (9) learned more english from the friendly staff in one week than he would have done in school home in... More

The location is just perfect: right in front of the surf spots! It is really ideal for surfers. We had the standard room with Fan which might be a bit overpriced. It was almost clean as they should get rid off the spider webs in the ceiling once in a while... it is the only hotel in that area with... More

Beautiful beachside retreat. I'd only recommend the beach front rooms as the others are very basic and don't get much light. Very nice cocktails on the beach and friendly staff. No real reception however so don't expect too many travel tips etc.

My partner and I shared the most delicious feast of local curries at this restaurant. By far the best food we have experienced in Sri Lanka. It is clear that the happy chef is an expert. We encourage everyone to try it...you will be so impressed.

Came straight here after touching down in Colombo, lovely hotel which wasn't busy as we were there at the end of the season. Room was fine, nice view through the palm leaves of the sea, the sound of the ocean as you fall asleep. Air conditioning and hot water in the shower, only point would be that we needed to... More
