After having a lot of good meals (so far the best food I had by the beach in Unawatuna) and sunbathing around, decided to move to the guest house and stayed for 2 nights. Mainly because was literally on the beach (which was recently renewed, longer and with golden paradisiac color), fast wifi, friendly staff and amazing place to chill... More

Excellent time with clean, large rooms facing a new beach which was rebuilt on March 2015. Service, great food with a highly recommended seafood platter! A bar on the beach with a great ambiance. The owner is a very nice man with lots of history concerning the beach and inhabitants. The restaurant overlooks the beach with a great bar attached... More

It was nice place to stay. We bargained the price from 5000 to 4000 Rs. per room for 2 and breakfast. Hot water, wifi and mosquito nets were included. Unawatuna has a big problem with dissapearing beach, more than 1/2 of Unawatuna's former beach-hotels have no beach anymore. Full moon is the first hotel "on the beach without sand", but... More

This was our second stay at Full Moon, and what a homecoming it was. Rupa Sena and his staff welcomed us as his own family. We stayed at the corner cottage, the ocean view from where is beautiful, to stay the least. The rooms are clean, and the little knick knacks in there add a lot of character. The food... More

I found this hotel (it's not really a resort) while looking for a room at the beach in Unawatuna. The staff was exceptionally friendly from the first moment I stepped in to the last goodbye. Every person was just a pleasure to talk and be with. The rooms are a little bit dated and could see some more efficient cleaning... More

Great location by the center of Unawatuna beach, you hear the waves and you see them from the restaurant/bar, rooms are A/C, clean and functional bathroom.... The staff is very efficient and the food excellent. You have the best beach at 100 metres walk, the one of the hotel beeing a turtle reserve..... I will always come there.......I am a... More

I stayed here for a week recently. Not to say I totally loved it but Una kind of sucks you in. My room (a sort of semi detached cabin). It was pleasant enough, if a little dark. Good mosquito net on the big bed. Chest of draws, desk and chair. The blinds let in a lot of light at night... More

Perfect place to eat sleep and party. With a bar next to it I didn't have to leave the beach. Owner Rupa speaks very well English and bought us all rounds and the end of the night. Music was good. Prices were low. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The menu was colourful. A+
