The staff is really friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and clean. Breakfast is simple but good. Fair price and it's located close to some of the divecenters in unawatuna. You can get to the beach fast by going on the rocks in front of the resturants and hotels or get a tuctuc.

Another blunder made by us , booking this from booking.com based on nice reviews and pictures. In reality, it's no where close to the description. Well I should ve gone by previous trip advisor reviews. Paid the price! I would call it totally worthless for families with young kids. It's nowhere close to beach, when we asked the manager how...

Well.. Rooms look really different on the picture ;). Really. We had dark room, one window wasnt able to use cause there stands wardrobe in front of him /?/. We asked the manager to change the room. He promised free room every single day - never showed us any. We also asked the manager for bike. Some guy from travel... More

Good property located just one lane from the beach. Rooms were clean and comfortable with a very helpful and friendly staff. Unawatuna Beach Resort is a stone's throw away with abundant food, drink options and activities.

This hotel claims good reviews but it is very basic. Room amenities are not satisfactory. Mosquitos and ants in the room. There are other better hotels in the area at the same or Better price. Don't just rely on the reviews. It would be best to come in the area and search for better hotel. Good Luck.

Booked this for family of four- assuming a bungalow on the beach. Sorry, once again blatant misrepresentation of the facts by the advert on booking.com. Only double rooms overlooking the spread of the pool from the Unawatuna Beach Resort. Not even a beach as rocks and totally unsuitable for our 10/13 year olds. Ended up cancelling and getting charged 110... More

Had a nice week at this place. No booking just walked in. It looked good and the rooms are nice and clean, just behind the small beach were you find Divers land Dive Club. Couldn't find them on trip advisor, but I can recommend this Dive club to every one. Small but the best between the big dive clubs. They... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, it was an average stay at best for the price. Rooms are small and very basic. Staff are friendly for the most part. The included breakfast is not as good as others we've had in Sri Lanka (no Sri Lankan option). It's quite a long walk to the main Unawatuna beach via the busy... More

We arrived here with no booking, but managed to negotiate a good deal on a ground-floor room. The white tiled floor was clean and the bed very comfortable. The air-conditioner was the quietest we've ever come across either in Sri Lanka or at home - we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were courteous, friendly and helpful, without being pushy. It...
