We just returned from four nights in the Cultural Triangle followed by four nights on the beach at Dallawella. Despite the mixed TA reviews, we chose to give them a try. <Good Call> It was a busy week and the nearby competitors were going to cost considerably more $$. Dallawella has only 8 rooms and we were hoping for some quiet beach time. The location feels remote, but the sights are easily accesible. Every morning you can view the stilt fisherman, and it's a nice stretch of semi private beach to walk or run. Dalawella is not a luxury accommodation. but it is smartly appointed, has powerful A/C, good size fridge, and not only was it CLEAN, there was always a fragrant cinnamon smell. They gave us Ritz Carlton service at a great rate. Kumada ( Sorry for spelling?) introduced himself and attended to us for the duration. He rented us motor scooters, provided maps, directions, answered questions, and gave honest advice about the area. Coffee was brought to our room promptly, and he happily honored meal requests at off hours. Laundry came back the same day, and one very large souvenir we were worried about packing was boxed up and ready for transport while we were off sight seeing. He was by far the best room/building attendant we have had to date. His interactions were non intrusive but his experience and intuition with hospitality make it a "return to" destination for us. There are more pictures of rooms and views posted on Agoda, and they ARE exactly what we saw!!!!
