It is quiet for a reason ... Service disgraceful.... NO other table ... Simple order 50 minutes! 2 adults 3 children .... They really didn't care ! Don't bother ... Food plain and boring ..... I need to add this to submit ... There is nothing else to say but go next door!

We booked his place last minute and when we got here, we were a bit disappointed as it doesn't really look like the photos. They advertise the room with a balcony and terrace and it has neither . The balcony is the corridor that leads to your room . Breakfast every morning is also quite disappointing and they ask you... More

The Villa Hotel is located in Unawatuna close to Galle. One time Unawatuna was one of the best beaches in the world until Tsunami came and spoilt it. However it is still a nice place to stay and The Villa make it possible. Good seafood with a seafood market at The Villa beach where you can pick fresh fish, prawns... More

The room is decent but pillows are not the greatest plus the room stays damp all the time.... The restaurant has great seafood and pizza. The pork chops are very bad and their juices are not good but many places to go all around the place.

Good location on the beach and quiet hotel with only 6 rooms, but our room was very dirty and full of mosquitos (~30) when we arrived. We had to return two bath towels, as they had brown stains all over them, and friends staying in different rooms had the same problem with the towels I asked them to clean the... More

Stayed 8 nights instead of 4 Great staff made it feel like home. Postion right on beach was perfect and cost was very reasonable. We were on the top floor with high ceiling and perfect ocean views even from the bed! Would recomend to all especially off season as it is not too busy on the beach.

Somehow I had forgotten to book a hotel for the last night of our trip in Sri Lanka. Well, last night and following day (our plane did not leave until midnight). Luckily, our amazing driver suggested we spend the night in Unawantuna. Unawanatuna had not even been on our radar. It is close to Galle so we could tour the... More

The Villa is actually in a great spot right on the beach in Unawatuna. And Unawatuna is probably the most beautiful beach on that coastal stretch of Sri Lanka. The bay is protected and provides a calm still oceanfront perfect for swimming. At the same seasonal time visited the other beaches were a little on the rough side. Unfortunately what... More

We stopped by for a sunset dinner after seeing their romantic beach setting. We ordered the seafood platter and an expensive glass of whiskey. Unfortunately from the moment the platter arrived it was a mess. Most of it was inedible. The tuna, prawns and calamari were old the only thing half salvageable was the crab legs and lobster. The only... More

The Villa is almost on the beach and is mainly a restaurant with 6 rooms. The room (101) we had was small (they are all the same size) and tired, but clean and had all basic necessities (bed, chairs and a bathroom). We stayed here for 6 nights. The staff is absolutely the key to this hotel, as they're all... More
