Dear all, please be AWARE of this hotel. 1. The pictures of nice beach hotel is no more valid, because of the sand was fully washed away by waves, actually hotels stands on the ocean. 2. Manager is money-oriented only and makes travelers pay in advance. If you want to leave this place already paid for the room, you’ll never... More

I stayed here with a group of friends in upper floor rooms overlooking the ocean. The rooms were clean, the staff were friendly and for a budget Asian hotel, the beds were comfortable enough. This is not a luxury hotel. I don't understand why there have been such negative previous reviews. The owners made us feel comfortable and were polite... More

Am currently staying at the Peacock with my husband and 2 daughters (9 and 2). First stayed at owner Sunil's place, à bamboo cabin on the same spot, 15 years ago. It was à great place then and still is. Rooms are fine, not luxury, but this is reflected in the price. The views over the ocean and bay are... More

The peacock hotel is a nice clean guesthouse/hotel that charges fair prices, for rooms as well for the food. The food was ok/quite good, sometimes they have seafood barbecue - the menu doesnt differ from all the other restaurants. The owner and staff were very nice, one time they did a firework for us. rooms were clean and cosy, but... More

Peacock Hotel is located on the eastern side of Unawatuna Beach. It was obviously built too close to the ocean because the sea comes right up to the ground floor restaurant and sometimes splashes you. There is a small sliver of beach and lounges to use. There are three levels of balcony and it's great to sit there in the... More

We checked into this guesthouse after having spent a week and a half in the more northern parts of the country. Our driver did mention that this particular hotel is not on the main drag - Temple Rd - however we decided to book anyways as it was recommended in Lonely Planet. We were greeted by friendly staff upon our... More

This place could be nice with a spruce up and a little friendliness. As it is, it's a bit tired and run down with broken doors, dodgy showers and cobwebs on the furniture. I also found the manager to be very miserable, always scowling at us as we walked past. He also put us in the worst room when we... More

We stayed here for four nights in a top floor room with a big balcony and paid 1500Rs a night. The room was beautiful, spotlessly clean with a four poster bed and mozzie net. The bathroom was clean with a cold shower. The views from our room were amazing and the sunsets were stunning. Everyday we could see sea turtles... More

Clean backpacker hotel right on the water at Unawatuna - If you're looking for beachside this is it. Staff are very friendly, ensure that your fluid levels are well maintained and can arrange tuk-tuk drivers and tours to southern beaches and Galle. 10-15 rooms on offer - basic but good for backpackers. Good option and well priced. Try to "drop... More
