I've read some of the reviews and it seems to be a little bit hit and miss which if we had read them before we might have been put off from staying there
However we stayed there for the one night and we had a really enjoyable stay. The hotels in Uda walawe as stated in the Lonley planet are of shocking value. In some respects it might be better off travelling from Mirrisa or tangalle and making a day of it like that.
We spent an hr in a jeep looking for a place to stay because they were all terrible. This was the only one that was clean (very important to my girlfriend). The rooms were of a good standard and the beds were really comfortable. If you want real value for money then I would suggest you get the food included in the price. The owner was flexible on the price as well. They arranged the safari for us at 4000 rupees and the best times to go are at 6am or in the evening
In a nutshell... Superb food, extremely friendly and helpful staff, most definitely better than the other hotels there, a little expensive but you have a pool and excellent service from staff. I would definitely recommend this place!!!
Btw don't use the jeeps to go to the hotels and whatever you do, DONT got to the THIEVES at the Eco resort hotel
