Ok so we looked at most of the places on this strip of beach. We payed 3000rp walk in rate for room with fan, which was okay. We couldn't find any nicer looking at comparable prices. The staff tries to be friendly, but quite often fail at it. We stayed for 5 nights, and they never cleaned our room or... More

We didn't stay at Shiva's, only had lunch there a couple of times. The food was very good and the location is quite nice as it is located directly at the beach. We had 5 different dishes and all very excellent. The best were the grilled big prawns. Make sure to ask for them as they don't have them every... More

We stayed 1 night here and left. The staff were very unfriendly and sometimes rude. The room was filthy and very small although quite expensive (Rs3000), good location on the beach but gardens and beach huts very poorly maintained and the man just took our money and walked away as we left. Much better places next door and along the... More

Stayed 3 nights here, and was good value for money 2000rs for a fan room walk in rate. However I would recommend paying extra to get the A/C room, it says very hot at night. The staff are friendly and helpful, but I felt they weren't at the front desk often enough. Has WIFI, but only by front desk, and... More

Really good guesthouse right on the beach, basic rooms but very clean and good aircon. Only 2000 rupees walk in rate which was way better than any of the other hotels on the same street. Good service also.

AC room cost Rs 3000/day which is a good deal. room is spacious and reasonably furnished. Direct access to the beach. Restaurant is expensive though easy. Recommended for a law end traveler. Beach is sandy and long, not clean. Diving tours are available.

After sheeking every places in Uppuvelli Beach, This was the best we found. There are better places but more expensive. It's located just in front of the sea., The rooms are clean and comfortable and the restaurant is pretty good. Breakfast is not included. Wi-Fi yes but the coverage is in the reception. Ideal place to pass some quietful days... More

We arrived at the beach without pre-booking accommodation. Even though we were visiting during the shoulder season it was bit of a rude shock to find out everything was booked out for weeks in advanced - so we were very lucky to find a room at Shivas! We found the staff to be very helpful. We arrived by tuk tuk... More
