Loved rococo s. great location. Central to everything, nice and quiet,very comfortable large beds, we stayed in room 3. Staff friendly, excellent laundry service. Clean rooms, just don't try the 'special fish barbecue. It's a total rip off. They don't have a proper chef working in the kitchen , better off eating out in other places. But would still stay...

We stayed at Roccos for 5 nights and had an amazing holiday. It was the first time we travelled to Sri Lanka and we will return there for sure. The staffs are very friendly. The rooms are clean and spacious enough.

The three of us (2 Australian's & 1 English) stayed at Rocco's for 8-10 days and by far it was easily the most memorable time of our travels in Sri Lanka. Asam & Raheem were the most extremely hospitable staff members one could ask for offering breakfast & dinner's and conversing with us on a regular basis, treating us like... More

We stayed 6 nights in this hotel and had really good time, mainly thanks to staff which created atmosphere almost like at home. Firstly, Manager Hashim made the best effort to get us a room in busy season. Secondly, during our stay, whatever we asked for was solved above expectations and staff was permanently doing their best. Pros Staff (Hashim... More

We stayed in Arugam for four nights and initially booked a double room in advance at Sandy Beach Hotel (4500Rs without breakfast). Unfortunately they had only one room left (room 6), which was just a little bit bigger than the bed, also the bathroom was outside the room. We were very sorry, but decided to leave and look for some... More

We stayed at Roccos for 8 nights, and really enjoyed it. We had a garden view cabana-style room. It was clean and with a nice big bed. They cleaned the room when we asked for it. The price was a bit high compared to other places we stayed though. But the staff was really friendly and helpfull, and the hangout... More

Upon arrival it is a lush view. The hotel is right on the beach and there is a hammock (finally I found one). But my excitement was soon diminished as I was told on my booking through email with the manager that we had room 3 and 4. Well this was not the case as they had let someone stay... More
