Room A/C is not functioning properly. Only the Breakfast will be served as buffet and other meals will be Setmenu even though they say it's Buffet for Lunch and dinner. Room Service will ask to hand over the room 1Hr prior to the check out. They say New guests are arriving and they need to prepare the room. Worst Experience... More

I think this is the first stared hotel where we need to pay before we drink at the bar. I felt it was like a take away. I had 2 bottles of beer on two payments with service charges. The person called MANAGER was a crazy guy, as he can not even talk to a customer & manage even a... More

A good basic hotel a little way (10 min drive) from Galle. The views of the sea out the front are nice, and the pool out the back is peaceful and quiet, with a bar. The rooms need a bit of an upgrade though. Our fridge wasn't plugged in, didn't have the right socket adaptor and the TV remote didn't... More

Road side location on the busy noisy Matara Road over looking the beach. Not an attractive building. The new block at the back by the pool is much better looking and certainly quite , unlike the main building where traffic is passing all hours of the day and night. Pool is large in pleasant surroundings with a bar and restaurant... More

Visited here for a day out with my friends. They have a nice and clean swimming pool with clean but very small changing rooms. Rooms are quite good and spacious. One disadvantage is that the traffic noise of the Galle road which is running right in front of the hotel. You can find a nice restaurant and a bar at... More

Had a one night stay on business in the Sanmira Hotel just south of Galle in Sri Lanka in mid-August. The hotel has an idyllic location just across the main road from a lovely small beach and palm trees. That said I would suggest caution if you wanted to swim there due to the size of waves and rocky outcrops.... More

I usually book hotels waaay ahead of time, but this was the first time I made a last-minute booking. I was traveling from Adam's Peak the day before and found a good deal here from Agoda. The booking was easy and quickly confirmed, and after a 7+ hour drive with no air-con, I was pleased to arrive and discover there... More

Nice hotel in a good location but the road was rather busy at night and also quite dangerous. Staff in hotel very helpful and also had 1 of the new rooms in the new wing next to the swimming pool. Food reasonably good in hotel. Would probably stay in this hotel again if returning to Unawatuna.
