Came here as a big group for a family holiday, and the hotel was just beautiful, peaceful, picturesque, clean and the staff were very helpful and attentive. Breakfast on the veranda overlooking the beach was worth waking up for and the hotel is a bargain for the price. Will definitely be back and have recommended to family and friends

We have just returned from a five night stay at the Sun 'n' Sea. We stayed in one of the ground floor rooms which was basic but had a good, clean, comfortable bed with mosquito net, air-conditioning, fan, good shower and we were able to get Wi Fi in our room. The inclusive bed and breakfast option was limited but... More

The hotel is situated on what feels like its own private stretch of Unawatuna beach. All the rooms front onto the beach with direct access from the outside lounging area onto the beach and their sun loungers. The staff are friendly, there is a very decent on site restaurant and the rooms are large and simply yet very tastefully finished.... More

friendly and helpful staff made this stay very chilled and relaxing. Food was lovely and if you wanted anything off menu or done differently they would accommodate. Good location at the end of the beach because the centre can be a bit loud in the evenings. Would stay here again.

We stayed at Sun 'n' Sea with a group of friends over New Year and had an excellent 7 nights. The hotel is set at the quiet end of Unawatuna Beach, but still only a 5 minute walk (or 150 rupee tuc tuc) to the main 'strip' of restaurants and bars. Being a bit further out, we were able to... More

We stayed here for 1 night during our SriLanka roundtrip and it was one of our best stays. The property and rooms are very tasteful designed. We had a ground-floor unit which was big and accommodated the 3 of us. Unfortunately the single bed didn't have a mosquito-net, which was a no go since I got bitten like crazy. Breakfast... More

I stayed here with 7 others during Christmas and New Year 2014 - 2015. We had 3 of the top level rooms and 1 of the lower level rooms and all the rooms were beautiful! They are basic, but clean and tidy and have all the amenities that you need while on holiday! The top rooms have a gorgeous balcony... More

Me, my husband and our two boys, aged 8 and 10, stayed at Sun N Sea for 7 nights during Christmas Holiday. We stayed in the family room on the second floor; a rather spacious room, wonderful view of the sea and a private balcony. One double bed and two single beds, both with mosquito-net. The bathroom is a bit... More

My husband and I came here for dinner twice whilst staying in Sri Lanka. The pizzas are amazing! The service is really great and the restaurant has a view all the way down Unawatuna beach to the temple on the headland. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Based at the far end of Unawatuna Beach, this hotel is well-known for its restaurant - especially the pizzas. It does have a little beach out the front of it, but it is a short walk, or about 200SLD in a tuk tuk, to the larger ones with bars and restaurants. Our room was great with a table and chairs...
