This is a nice place if you want to be near the beach, but otherwise, avoid this place. They charge 1500 rps for a room full of flies and mosquitoes, not good cleaned, price is really too high for this place. I stayed already right on the beach in other places in Sri Lanka for much less and much nicer... More

Our stay in French Garden was the worst night we spent in Sri Lanka. It is dirty everywhere, the staff is rude and you pay a lot for this hole. We read the reviews but it was even worse than expected. Even 100 Rp. Would be too much for this place. So better take some of the closeby options for... More

If u haven't been to india u'll get a good taste of it staying at the french garden. The only nice thing is the beach. It's downright dirty. The price is ridiculous for what they offer. I don't think they ever clean the bathrooms. ..beware.. You were told so...

This is an ideal place to stay if you are looking for somewhere with a view of the ocean from the bed! Not being an early riser I have to admit I have never seen a sunrise, however with a friendly poke in the ribs from my girlfriend I summoned the energy to open my eyes and lift my head... More

dive master was the first in sri lanka. very environmentally minded. activist and paying for it with all sorts of threats. clean and very security conscious. loved the dives. hotel rooms are humble but excellent value for money for the area. wifi is very slow to non existent and it is not due to provider. other hotels have better wifi....

This place is a nice place to stay if your here for the beach and are looking for an afforable room. The staff is really friendly, the rooms very simple and as clean as could be for the old state they're in. All the other places we looked at were more expensive and not particulary cleaner. We had a pleasant... More

A Tuk Tuk Driver brought us here, that was the first and the last time we did that. The rooms look ok on the first sight, not to cheap (2500 for a really basic double) but we thought the sight is worth it. After one night lying in the bed we realized how filthy the beds are, how thin and... More

Close to the beach, relaxed atmosphere but mosquitos in the bathroom. (pay attention if you come by tuk-tuk: the driver might claim a provision from the owner, forcing him to add it up to your bill; better exit at the blue building at the main road)

This place has so much potential! We were stoked when we found a beachfront room for 3000 rupees with what looked to be a good vibe. But the staff were absolutely useless. They all bummed cigarettes off my partner the whole time we were there and were just generally unhelpful. The first night the staff had a big party which... More
