We stayed at Upul's guest house during the weekend. The room we stayed was the best they had to offer, with an excellent view I must say. But should note that this was only the plus point compared to the price we payed for one night. LKR 6,500 was thought be okay by us, but on top of that they... More

It was the wrong call from our side to start with. We were searching for a beach front place to stay a couple of nights in Unawatuna and that's what we got. The place is literally on top of the beach, but that's were the best part of this story ends. The rest includes cockroaches, useless air con, and loud... More

beautiful room with air condition just over the sea, with a breathless landscape under our feet. smart and kind staff, always ready to give us the right advises to move around the city. not the most cheap accomodation, but anyway with a right balance between price and quality.

perfectly placed on Unawatuna beach this small guesthouse offers spectacular views from rooms with balconies across the bay. The rooms are spacious with good bathrooms.Staff are friendly and helpful and the beach restaurant the perfect place for sundowners. excellent value for money.

We booked the 2nd floor sea view room for Valentines day. We stayed for 2 nights. The staff were useless telling us upon arrival that the hotel was full. We showed them the email confirmations and the several emails we had exchanged whilst booking the room from England. With 6 members of staff scratching their heads the decided that yes... More

Upuls is a very small inn, that's right on the Unawatuna beach. The beach was beautiful! But like most hotels in that area, its small and very very basic, but since you end up spending most of your time on the beach, it's ideal. The food is great! we recommend the pizza We also noticed a lot of guests from... More

We were lucky enough to get room number 6 I guess which had a terrace facing the beach with a beautiful view of the unawatuna beach which is quite good for such low price. We slept to the sound of the shore luckily didn't get enough noise of the overnight playing band right next to the hotel. AC worked fine,shower... More

This place may suit some people but not us! It was right on the beach which was nice but the room was very hot as the air conditioner was very old and not functioning properly. The noise from the adjoining bar kept us up for most of the night. To get to the room we had to climb some stairs... More

Upul's guest house is right on the beach, next to Hot Rock bar. We stayed in a room upstairs with no view, but a wonderful sea breeze. Fall asleep listening to the waves. It's clean and inexpensive. I think we paid less than $20, which is super-cheap for the otherwise overpriced Unawatuna. Restaurant downstairs is not the best, but OK... More

Confirmed booking & yet no reservation! We booked via Agoda.com, but few days after a message came from guest house, that we may cancel our booking at Agoda.com and book direct, getting better rate. We did it, but upon arrival we were told we have no reservation. After a phone call to owner we were offered another villa far -far... More
