Staff offered welcome drink after arriving. The building faces to the sea, panorama is beautiful, the hotel has its own beach. Room was clean and nice, unfortunately there were a lot of mould on every walls. Manager said they planned to renovate after our stay, but it was not an excuse for smelly, mouldy walls. The manager was very helpful... More

Hotel is nice and clean and location was just by the sea, so near that you can hear the waves all the time. Minus thing was that there is no beach you can sunbath and very difficult to swim. Seawiew room was nice except you don't see sea from your windows, only by opening room door its possible. Little far... More

This little family run mid-range hotel is impeccably well set out and clean. The friendly owner and his attentive staff are a credit to the place and definitely enhance the overall enjoyment of the stay here. An absolutely glorious veranda to watch the waves roll in. Reasonable place for surfing a few wave immediately out from the hotel or 3... More

I have stayed at La Veranda di Serena with a group of friends from 30th December 2014 to 2nd of January 2015. The hotel is located right on the beach, and the first morning view while stretching your legs after a good night sleep is simply glamorous. The rooms are clean, simple and airconditioned. The breakfast is good, and served... More

This hotel is great with rooms overlooking the sea and impeccably clean rooms, it is a pleasure to relax on the balcony looking at the sea. The staff is welcoming and helpful and it is a five minute walk along the beach to reach the main town. On the down sides, the bedrooms do not have mosquito nets and after... More

My girlfriend and I were Made to feel very welcome at La Veranda. The breakfast was always excellent and the fruit smoothies some of the best I have ever had. The rooms were clean and perfectly satisfactory for couples staying a few nights. The hotel has it's own private beach and a balcony which we used to enjoy reading on.... More

Generall the restaurant didn't meet expectations and was below what you would expect interms of ambience-however, the tables in the open area was a great setting. Our experience is that food is generally of poor quality around galle area, particularly non sri lankan. Food quality does not match the ambience, but may be affodarble to tourists. Boutiques (kaddes) are best... More

We booked in for four nights after checking virtually every beachside accommodation from Thalpe up to Unawatuna. As soon as we walked into the room we knew we'd found the right place for the right price. A beautiful, airy room over looking the ocean. Very clean, well thought out with modern touches. Wifi, safe, tv and the best shower we... More
