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

Place is fantastic, few bungalows on the beach, beds to sunbath, shadows to protect from burning (it gets very hot at midday), bar and restaurant with excellent food and fruit juices....hammocks, private veranda in my bungalow, very friendly people and safe for single traveller (woman)...

We went here on recommendation, but we were a little concerned after reading some of the reviews. We had no reason to be concerned this is a fantastic place where the staff will look after you very well. The food may take a little while, but it is well worth the wait. It is all cooked fresh and we agreed... More

If you are on a backpackers budget and you want beach front views, this is your place. However beware- the rooms are not the cleanest, they have parties, the staff move at a glacial pace on any order of business and are largely unfussed if they deliver bad service. But like I said, the view is good and the price... More

Great, location on the beach, can lie in a hammock and read, play volley ball, chill on the beach, swim in the 30C water. Very basic accommodation, cheap. Diving much cheaper than Nilaveii, much busier backpacker vibe. Very nice beach bar. Diving around this area was not amazing, but the instructor was a nice guy, my equipment was ok, can... More

Putting location aside I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. The rooms and bathrooms are filthy and and at night the rooms are like ovens, with the small fans not giving much relief. It's only benefit is that it is probably the cheapest place to stay. We're not fussy, and although other reviews warned this we thought it would be... More
