We booked this as a treat to end our Si Lankan holiday and it didn't disappoint. The room was modern, clean and well equipped. While not spacious, it contained everything we needed and was well laid out. The staff were friendly, attentive and professional throughout our stay. While I was initially disappointed to see the beach at the hotel was... More

Visions of lazy days lying on the beach were shattered on arrival with less than friendly welcome & waves crashing on sandbags trying to protect a very narrow beach but only creating dangerous backwash Perhaps we got them on a bad day but although we had a spacious room & bathroom on 3rd floor with nice views of bay there...

The buffet started 7.30pm we arrived 8.20pm. There was no starters left, we asked for a for the dishes to be refilled but they just took... More

UBR is a beautiful property, with very friendly staff, from the Reservations Team to the Reception to the F&B staff. We really enjoyed our stay here, and were looked after very well. The food is great and the rooms are fabulous and comfortable, with all amenities given. They have a fantastic bar and a fantastic Barman, who really knows his... More

A lovely hotel in Unawatuna - not sure why it is so low down the review score. Stayed here on our travels - the welcome and people working here were really friendly! Stayed in room 6 which is beside reception. The breakfast on both days were perfect - first day was buffet and second day was a set menu. We... More

2 nights stay was really relaxing and refreshing. Recommend to stay in a new wing beach view room. Pool is under maintenance so only the beach is available but....... its a 10 min walk to the open beach. As the beach in front of the hotel is not accessible due to rocks placed for sea erosion. Rooms are new comfortable,... More

The hotel has a great location and is only a short bus ride to Mirissa and Galle. The food at the hotel was fantastic and the restaurant has a great view of the ocean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and had a good shower. Free wi fi in the rooms and lobby.

Great spot, close to everything in Gaulle. Very cozy and right at the beach! Good buffet breakfast/lunch/dinner, friendly staff always tried to be helpful. There is foot rub massage place and rent-a-scooter place attached to UBR. We rented scooters and went all around the city centre, Mrissa beach and other places.

Had to book UBR or Calamander Beach resort as its known after arriving in Unawatuna for the weekend. Clean hotel and room with a decent sized bathroom. Since the pool was under renovation, the room rate had been reduced for HB basis. Disappointed because the pool story was not highlighted when we called to book the hotel. Dinner buffet lacked...

Just had 10 days at the Calamander Beach Resort. I am a single senior traveller, and it was perfect for what I wanted. I had a Deluxe room, all of which have been recently renovated to a good standard. I was there for the cricket in Galle, so was not looking for a beach. I have stayed in this hotel... More
