We spent here one night on our trip to south. We liked the room - very spacious, nice balcony. Very close to the beach. But we did not have the hot water sometimes. We asked for the breakfast at 8 and we had not the table ready.

The place is very nice and cozy with a beautiful garden surrounding all the rooms. But on the last day when we packed up our stuff we noticed that my credit card and around 100 Euro had been stolen from the room. It feels like a very nice, friendly, secure place but don`t trust the people that work here.

We stayed 2 nights in October 2014. The room is relatively nice but totally lacks care and maintenance. We were shocked seeing some excrements from mice or rats or some similar animal, who knows (excuse my language) in the bathroom. We asked to have that cleaned but nobody bothered during the whole stay. The wi-fi is free but does not... More

Spent 5 nights in Sea View. The first night we paid 5000 Rs for a room. The room felt a bit dirty, when it had stains on the sheets, and the bathroom was a bit worn out. The staff there gave us a new room the next day (not because we asked for it, but I guess they wanted to... More

We stayed 6 nights at Sea View and for £20 per night B&B it finished our holiday on a high! Only footsteps to the beach, staff is friendly and you feel at home! The room is basic, fab air conditioning facility, showers good and four poster bed is fitted with netting to avoid the mosquito's. No need to go to... More

Finding food and other leftovers from former guests we kept up for one night but then moved. This is not the place you would like to stay unless you are on a very low budget. There are many good alternatives in Unawatuna.

We stayed a couple of days in this resort and enjoyed it very much. The location is perfect, with a garden in front of it and next to the beach. The rooms are basic but o.k. (Incl. Muskito nets). The food was very good and the staff friendly, especially Yuko ( a very nice, polite and helpfull guy!)

The sea view hotel is under new management. The staff is friendly and willing but lack experience. The rooms are very basic, not very clean but functional. Breakfast is very simple (white toast, egg and coffee). The beach is at the other side of the road. If you are a midrange traveller without any sense for ambiance this is an... More

We spent our last 3 nights in Sri Lanka at this quaint guest house, and couldn't have been happier! The owner was away, but the acting manager and staff were very pleasant and friendly. They even helped us with learning more Sinhala before our departure! Our driver recommended the corner room overlooking the beach, but it was being renovated. We... More
