Loved eating here. I am still in Sri Lanka and will definitely eat here again while around Unawatuna. Lovely food, the sweet and sour chicken was perfect. Atmosphere is lovely, sound of the waves is obviously a must. Good prices for the location on the beach and the staff are very friendly and happy. :)

It’s hard to imagine that you could taste fresh seafood and an ambiance like this at night. Given the ease of traveling from Colombo to Unawatuna beach in about 1.5 hours, you not only can experience a different setting, but could in fact enjoy some of the most pleasing service and care available from the South of the country.

The location is great and the atmosphere is fine, but service needs some improvement.There were 4 of us and we were persuaded to share a quite enormous fish. The fish was great, but we were crammed on a small table and the monster fish took up almost all the table surface and we were left very much on our own... More

We stayed at Tartaruga over new year and early January. The hotel has stunning views over the sea, it did not bother us the beach has now gone in front of Tartaruga as literally a few mins walk to rest of beach. The best things about this hotel is the service and the food. Fresh seafood daily on the BBQ... More

A nice and friendly place, but with some clear hickups. We stayed at Tartaruga for 6 nights in a spacious family room. The room was clean and could be cleaned by asking. We had it cleaned every second day which was fine by us. It is a nice place with friendly staff. The place is situated right on the Beach... More

We come to Unawatuna second year in a row and Tartaruga is our choice #1 for the seafood. We tried quite much restaurants on Unawatuna beach and every time we come back to this one! Staff is progressing in service on different languages. Today they announced they have menu in Russian and they also speak different languages (not fluently, but... More

We stayed in Tartaruga hotel from 21-30August 2013. When we arrived we realized that the sea eroded the beach in front of the hotel. We were quite disappointed as we chose this hotel because of a friends recommendation and the beach in front. Next morning the GM of the hotel came to us and apologized for the situation. It's absolutely... More

We spent 2 weeks at Tartaruga with our kids. Though the beach in this part of the bay is temporarily eroding due to the changes caused by the recently built sea-defence, but in spite of the changes we spent a very nice holiday there. The location is really good! It was impressive to see how much effort is taken with... More

After a couple days in Unawatuna, staying at a different hotel, we found ourselves always parked in front of Tartaruga due to its central location, friendly staff and cold drinks! The logical choice was to stay there for the last night to maximise our time at the beach. The hotel is basic-basic to say the least, but seeing as we... More
