Two rooms for two nights and booked on the Internet , so we couldn't change our minds when we arrived. It is low season and some hotels are closed for building work or until surf season again. This hotel wants to have its cake and eat it- carpenters working , concreting being done - our bedroom floors and verandas a... More

This hotel very near to the beach. The rooms were very comfortable. Bathrooms were also very clean. The staff was also very helpful and kind. Food was also very tasty. The view of the sea is excellent.

We think we found the best place to stay in Arugam Bay. Right in the middle of the bay, with a triple room overlooking the beautiful sea and action of the fishermen, at a small off season price. The ocean in front was the best for swimming. The staff were fantastic! A little paradise, literally.

We spent our night in a cabana in front of the beach. It was good airy and comfortable. Bathroom was little but good. The food is good. The staff has a smile on their faces and work very long hours. The view is excellent. Nice place to stay.

We choose this place on a spur of the moment whim whilst walking down the main street drag and were so happy we did. We stayed here 6 nights and loved it. By the end we felt a part of the furniture, as if we had been there months and on leaving had a long friendly chat with the manager,... More

I was here, while it was still under construction but the guys working were super nice and helpful. The food was good and it is one of the nicer spots in town for the price. Not too long of a walk to the point and across the street from the beach.
