This place is great lush beach but made so much better if you walk 300 mtr to the end of the road to eat at pavi restaurant. Suba the owner is an amazing women who's cooking you will love and to top it off it's served at local prices. A must go if your staying in uppuvli.

I stayed there exactly for two hours, after taxidriver brought me there directly from Trincomalee railway station. I searched for half an hour until finally the cleaning lady appeared who allegedly was in charge of renting out the room. An extremely unfriendly person without manners and without a smile. She showed me a 3-bed room and said it would cost... More

Accommodation was basic but sufficient. There was a big party going on about 7 or 8 sri lankan guys drunk (one of them the... More

A big fatty manager, useless and being a real thief... A good location on the beach (but dirty rooms and sheets...), but be aware of dreary drink party during night with loud music protected by the manager because 'it makes money' !!!

We were in a high season, so a lot of accommodations in Trincomalee were already fully booked. A reason for French Garden to almost triple their prices. Since we arrived pretty late, we took it. The room is not good, but for me it was good enough (simple bed + bathroom, not very clean but that's in most cheap places... More

It is extremely basic but has everything you need. A bed, a mosquito net, a verandah with a table, windows and a bathroom. It is also directly on the beach which is the reason everybody loves it! The staff are great and do a fabulous grilled fish! If you go up the path to the main road you'll find a... More

Well, I got one of these rooms that was straight on the beach. That is the first big plus about this hotel. And the room was rather basic with a comfortable bed, fan, and mosquito net. I just wanted to be close to the beach without having to pay and arm and a leg included. The price was fair. The... More

we turned up to uppuveli without a booking and this was the only (cheap) place left. The room was seriously bad, the bathroom was unusable and the bed was missing slats so you fell in during the night. but despite this, the location was perfect, the staff were amazing (friendly, relaxed and happy to chat over a beer) and the...

Great place to stay if you're on a budget. Room was cleaned to a reasonable standard. In all honesty, I spent hardly any time in the room. You're on one of the nicest beaches in Sri Lanka so why would you. It was very basic though. The only annoying thing about this place is that there is quite a nice... More

So close to nature as possible. Small rooms with slate roof good for staying there at night. After sunrise You have to spend whole day outside (cause it's to warm inside). And that's perfect! There are shady palm trees with hammocks and white sandy beach behind. Clear water with small fishes jumping in waves. Sometimes, swimming after sanset, you can... More
