After some friends recommended this guest house we decided to check it out. Upon driving into town a tuk tuk driver who worked for the guest house proceeded to drive alongside our vehicle and try to sell his pitch, almost driving us off the road several times. Not fun with our child in the car. Upon arrival at the hotel... More

Thank you for your review, Aqua has 4 catergories of rooms standard AC, standard fan only, budget fan only and backpacker caves. The room you selected was a standard room, as season had not yet started it was offered at a 40% discount. This was a walk in rate only as we offer only standard rooms on Agoda. Although we... More

For me one the best place to stay in Trinco : - Uppuveli beach is the nicest beach in the area, not too far from Trinco. - The design of the tables and chairs of the bar are very good, with a very nice first floor wooden structure which gives you the best view on the beach. -Music is modern...

Don't come expecting the ritz but it's a place CLEARLY on the up. Everything was clean, bed very comfy and good mozzie nets. Nice little balcony. All staff were friendly and trust... More

We booked this place through Agoda and we went there we did not find a reception or anyone to greet us. We walked in through an extremely dirty reception area and reached a bar by the beach where we received a cold greeting from the manager who is an English woman. The room was small but clean but the bathroom... More

This place has a wonderful position on the beach, a nice little pool and a great beach bar. It could be so good. However, the rooms were neglected; dirty and poorly maintained; what was described as a balcony could fit one person standing up and the window was blocked out by a massive AC unit which meant it was always...
