Nothing fancy, service may even be a little impersonal (it doesn't bother me), but everything that is important functioned well. The owner is very hands-on, one day upgrading electricity circuit breakers, the following day teaching staff how to dry balcony floors properly after heavy rain. The room was a little cramped, but the attached bathroom was spacious. For its price... More

Stayed here with my four friends, the location is quite good, not quite on the beach as you have to walk through another hotel to get to the beach. The owners are very welcoming and the breakfast was great - lots of toast! The only real problems we had were that we had to move rooms because our aircon wasn't... More

I arranged yoga tour from Moscow to Sri Lanka and needed good hotel for 10 ladies.I found this hotel and booked rooms. I was a little bit worried because my yoga group had very different expectations and people ask me to book clean place not far from the beach with A/C and separate beds. Owner Sarath really great person, he... More

Cheap, cheerful, clean and right in the centre of the action. Short stroll to delicious eateries in the lane next to the beach and all the beach front bars are a stone throw away to duck down and watch the sun set. Staff were friendly, and although we didn't eat here the food smelt good and conditions were clean. If... More

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...

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
