“Great location!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Just in the center of the beach 4 stores hotel very friendly and small.
Very cheap comfortable mattress
Room price 50$ don't pay more!!!
I get ripped by him when he gave me the price of 65$ and my neighbor down floor only get it for 50 with AC!!!
Tip don't take the last room on the top it's hard to receive Internet wifi signal stay in the 2nd or the 1st.
If u r early sleeper avoid this hotel, too crowdy n noisy around it at night

We loved Little Villa. We were in Unawatuna for 2 weeks and stayed here for one week - we wish we found this little gem at the very beginning.

The room was great value at 5700rupee per night including a huge breaky. The breakfast, served beach front and was always fresh and well cooked. The staff were so friendly especially Thomas the chief. The rooms all have a big balcony literally over the water and it's a beautiful view to wake up to.

I couldn't recommend this place more. We felt very at home and had a relaxing, enjoyable holiday.

there are only 3 rooms here, and we happened to be lucky as our friends snapped us up both rooms after the NY rush... what a lovely place. we paid 7,000 rupees per night (about £40) incl lovely breakfast. the owner entertained us with Arrack, the food was lovely, the room was lovely, the view amazing, clean and a great place. there was usually a party though on somewhere on the beach, so not the quietest place!!

Room Tip: all 3 rooms i think similar, top room has larger balcony and higher view, but all good!

You simply cannot beat Little Villa for its location and view. It sits right on the beach and probably has the best view on all of Unawatuna. The guest house only has 3 rooms and each is on its own floor. The rooms are basic, but have a mini fridge, hot water and balcony. We paid USD $55 a night which included breakfast (eggs, toast and fruit - basic).

Now I feel bad saying anything too bad about this place because we were there for 7 nights and we had plenty of opportunities to move - BUT be aware that in the part of the world they don't considerate it normal to service your room every day. In fact, I needed to ask them to clean my room every two days and even then they didn't replace the toilet paper. Also our overhead fan broke and then never replaced it.

Even with the above in mind, I'd still go back because there is nothing better than waking up to that view.

We had the top floor by the way. Beautiful!

Room Tip: There are only 3 rooms and all exactly the same except the balcony. We took the top floor as the ba...

We looked extensively on trip advisor before we went to Sri Lanka last week, and settled on staying at Hikkaduwa. After two nights we then came down and stayed at Unawatuna - which is heaven on earth....

Little Villas is a fantastic place to stay and we can not speak highly enough of the location and service this little 3 bedroom place offers. Each floor of the building has it's own room with sweeping balconies that have the most amazing view of the bay you could ever imagine. You can not possibly get closer to the water than this. We paid 35 USD for a room which included a great b/fast. Do not look any further - this is your place to stay. May need to book if you are looking at going in the tourist season as there are only three rooms. Worth every cent!!!!!!
