I don't know why this place has low reviews, the location was the best in all of arugam! You literally walk out and there's the beach. Was great having the grassy area to relax in the hammock or deck chair. The staff were just so so kind and couldn't do enough for us. The breakfast was fresh fruit, toast and... More

You could find a flasher hotel but not a better location. Staff friendly and we only found this place by chance after leaving another unsatisfactory hotel. Air con works well and beach view is great. Breakfast is also included. The rooms are a little dated but we all thought it was great value for money

We booked and paid for this hotel online. On arrival they tried to get us to pay cash which we refused. We were later told this was an attempt to scam tourists. We were given a lower standard room than we payed for (very unclean with no working toilet), at which stage we left immediately. Do not visit this hotel... More

While not the most luxurious hotel in the world we enjoyed our stay here. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and insisted on trying to overfeed us throughout our stay. Since we all opted for Sri Lankan food (fish curry for breakfast - mmm) the quality was excellent. Every time we finished a dish we were asked, indeed pressed,... More

Just a thought to share with you guys after reading all the comments... It's crazy how you guys say that you went and saw the place, agreed with the tariffs and stayed there for a week or so and then say the place is horrible, dirty, unclean etc... You could have checked out of the hotel the very next day... More
