I have to echo the other reviews - Matthew IS Coco Bay hotel. He took great care of us, preparing delicious meals for us and ensuring we had everything we needed - nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are clean and the air conditioning is brilliant. The wifi worked well. As I mentioned to Matthew at the time, I'd... More

He even makes... More

We stayed one week at Coco Bay Hotel in Arugam Bay and we enjoyed it very very much!! The rooms are very modern, well-kept, and very clean. The location's side is perfect for surfing and chilling at the not-crowded parts of Arugam Bay. The manager Matthew is very helpful in anything and a very good cook. Food is very recommendable...

I stayed 3 nights at this hotel and everything was amazing. The hotel manager Matthew was unbelivable in providing the best service as possible. Matthew was also cooking amazingly tasty Sri Lankan food for guests on request. The room was big and perfectly clean with good air conditioning and very nice bathroom with hot water. Cheap laundry service was also... More

Coco bay has very new rooms. The place is very clean and air-conditioned. It's a two minute walk from the beach and three minutes from the main road. My deal included free breakfast, which was excellent. Matthew makes a man omelet. I think I may actually miss the rooms! Their rates are a bit on the high end for ABay,... More

Well, after trying to sleep in other two places (one at Adam's Peak and the other in Arugam Bay), our friends found this place and this saved our vacation there. I was... More
