We stayed here for 3 nights and it was awesome. We arrived late one night after 7 hours driving and we were exhausted. There was a mix up with our agoda booking however the management handled it immediately with a few phone calls. We were starving and there was nothing open near by and the manager offered to get us... More

Was here for one night over the weekend. The place is nice cuz it has direct beach access. Rooms are very basic but then again its about US$ 55-60 so you can't really expect the world. Decent breakfast and the staff are nice. If you want a nice small quite place to relax and enjoy the beach this is it,... More

The location of this small hotel is execellent. If you want to spend the day at the beach or lay on a sunbed/hammock listening to the waves, this place will deliver. The room was spacious, clean and had a comfortable large bed. The bathroom was also clean and tidy. The food was good and staff, attentive. Overall, a very comfortable... More

We stayed at this resort and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is superb, the ocean waves are lashing the resort boundary walls and you find total peace and tranquility here. It's a small place and very we'll run with most efficient staff serving good food and attending to all your needs. I strongly recommend this plcace.

Had a Wonderful four days stay here, the hotel is small but extremely clean and welcoming! We took a room upstairs, and it had a exceptional view of the sunset. All in all it was classy, had everything we needed and also it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Although the hotel is situated just off a main road there... More

We stayed for only one night because everywhere else near Una seemed to be booked (it is Chinese New Year when we went). I will preface my rating of 3 stars as 3 stars for a 2 star lodge. As is typical for a 2 star lodge, the room is sparse, linens were old, towels were thread bare. But, everything... More

Nice spacious room with a/c, free water, tea and coffee in the room. Room at first floor with balcony overviewing the beach, free wifi and beach beds in the shade. Normal breakfast and good service. No noice except the waves - I slept like an angel in heaven. Fully recommended.

We stayed at Dalawella Beach Resort for a night and were extremely impressed! Considering the low price we paid we had an amazing, spacious and clean room with a gorgeous ocean view balcony and one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in throughout all of Asia! The staff were amazing at all times and were also really helpful... More

This tiny hotel (8 rooms) is about a mile from the "town" and, when full, holds 18 people. No pool just straight onto a deserted beach. Very simple, clean and friendly. We only had a week there but it was perfect. Incredibly helpful staff but take a hair drier!

Hotel is directly on the beach and that's great. Warm Indian Ocean waters. Fantastic. But that is all you can say in a positive sense. A very basic room. Not even a TV in the room. All very basic and about 2 star category if generous. Yet it was an expensive rate coming with it. Be warned. This isn't a... More
