Unawatuna was hit badly by the tsunami one half of the beach virtually ceased to exist, this place is on the wrong side but the other side is only 200m. away, nonetheless there is a difference.Cool,tiled, standard room with mosquito net, shower etc. As per usual, no fridge, no TV or what was probably an oversight soap,nice building and gardens....

We had a sublime stay here at the Beach Bungalow. We stumbled across it when shifting from another guesthouse and planned to stay one night - we stayed for the rest of our trip! The owner was exceptionally kind and welcoming and made us feel like part of the family. Our room had a stunning view of the ocean and... More

Cleanest place we stayed, great location and great value. Lovely breakfast and man who cleans and makes the breakfasts does excellent job. A little bit of noise from building in hotel beside but that's not the beach bungalows fault. Lovely view and very comfortable room. Very impressed with the breakfast and cleanliness. Great location too for price.

Great spot, close to everything in Gaulle. Very cozy and right at the beach! Good buffet breakfast/lunch/dinner, friendly staff always tried to be helpful. There is foot rub massage place and rent-a-scooter place attached to UBR. We rented scooters and went all around the city centre, Mrissa beach and other places.

Overall pleasant experience at this place. Food was amazing.the beach is nice, but a short walk. Service at the property was very decent. Something for them to improve is the bathroom and toiletries which they provide.

The hotel is clean and quiet, you can hear the Waves to my delight and it`s a minute away from the Beach. Breakfast is delicious With good toast, egg of Your choice always freshly made, and well made! And of course fresh... More

Returned to the flower garden after 4 years. This time we stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor over the restaurant rather than a cabana. There has been some additional cabanas built since 2009 and far more guests. However the high standards have been more than maintained. Prices are reasonable for Unawatuna and the location at the...
