We stayed here right before the start of the season and practically had the beach to ourselves. The hotel was situated on the beach with a lovely little open resturaunt that had magnificent views of the ocean. Staff were super friendly, helpful and provided us with a very relaxing stay. Basic hotel rooms, no hot water for shower in our... More

We stayed at Shiva's beach resort in Jan 2015. IT was off season so it was really quiet. Accommodation was clean, cheap and location was great. It is actually on the beach. Gardens are nice and the food was good. Stuff was very helpful. When we arrived they were just getting ready to open for the season yet they did... More

Just next to the sea with laying chairs on the beach. We were here off season when they just started to renovate the rooms, since a new owner leads that resort. We got a good room with a cozy and soft mattrace for a good price. The restaurant is under palm trees directly next to the beach. The food was... More

The new owner and the whole staff of the hotel is very friendly, its very clean and the beach is only a few footsteps away. There is also a restaurant where you can take some food. The rooms are clean and big. They have hot water and a fan inside (and AC). All in all it was a very nice... More

The engineers to this building must have not been educated to facilitating any form of insulation or cooling whilst building this structure. The concrete just keeps in an exacerbates the heat. Its actually hotter in the room than outside. Turning on the fan doesn't quite help. Rather it makes it into a fan forced oven to which you be slow... More

I think that for the price of 2500 rs/night per 2 was OK. In Trincomale we found everything (for a budget traveller) more expensive than elsewhere in Sri Lanka. The staff was nice, room was clean. It was way better than their neighbours, French divers, who have really bad rooms for 2000 rs. When we came from their place to... More

First we had a look at the "coconut lounge" but this was much too expensive for what you get. So we tried it in "shivas guesthouse" where the stuff was nice. The price was okay (3000 rs without breakfast) the room was clean, the sheets were okay to sleep in and the bathroom was big (only cold water but ist... More

The rooms are big and fairly clean. For one night it was ok. Anyway the not at all negotiable 3500 rupees for the AC room were too much for the standard. The staff was not too friendly but you got what you need. Especially in the attached restaurant with a nice view along the beach the service was pretty unfriendly... More

Wanted to stay at Coconut Beach Lodge next door, which was full so we settled with three nights at this hotel. In general average hotel with clean spacious room. We did not have any bad experience with staff, even though their English was very bad. Location is perfect right at the Beach front. We loved that so much. On a... More

Stayed here rather unexpectedly because all the other places in Uppuveli were full. Basic room with fans and mosquito net but the mosquito net was too small to fit over the bed so we had to install our own... Comfortable beds though, bathroom clean and functional. Price was okay, not dirt cheap but just okay. We did catch a cockroach... More
