We stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is only 50m away from the beach. Rooms are cute and clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful and gave us a warm welkom. They put flowers next to your room everyday and serve a good meal.

My friend and me stayed 2 nights there and had a great time! Rooms were simple, clean and at quite reasonable prices. Dinner and juices were delicious there! Since we traveled during off-season, there were almost no people there, the beach empty - so everything perfect to relax!

Stayed here in early June. Beds and pillows are very hard and there is no AC. Very friendly staff though and got food from the restaurant quickly. Close to the lovely beach. Pigeon Island is a must if you are visiting Nilaveli beach!

Not a luxury place but offers clean, basic accommodation. The room and bathroom were large. As everyone writes, Mohammed takes care of any problems. Breakfast (Western style) was good; we did not eat any other meals here.

Mohamed Sadiq did everything he could to make our stay enjoyable in Nalaveli. Nothing was too much trouble. In the evening tables and chairs were set up in the garden to make a lovely setting for dinner (which is great as not much else was around!). All food was good and freshly cooked. We were able to use towels and... More

We were here in May on 8 nights. Hotel placed near beach, and military base. No view on ocean, but nice garden with sunbeds chipmunks and lizards. Our room was without hot water (but it's not big problem) and with fan (not really help in mid day, when very hot). Room clean and big. Near the room there is a... More

We stayed for 3 nights and found the place fine. The rooms are basic but spacious and clean. We had a couple of monster cockroaches in the bathroom on the first day, not ideal, but told the manager and the very lovely staff cleared them out and put something down the drain, and we didn't have any after that. Food... More

We stayed at this nice and calm hotel for 2 nights and enjoyed it a lot. It has clean and big rooms and the building is very special. It has a great green garden, where you can hear tropical birds singing. The stuff is incredibly friendly and sweet. It's a good choice going there, when you visit nilaveli. We recommend... More
