I reserved this hotel and came to stay. I happened to go to 3 rooms to find a working air condition. The room cleanliness is horrible. Bed sheets were dirty, Room was dirty and no insulation to hold the air conditioning. Air conditions were very old and makes horrible grounding sounds. We did not stay here during night although we...

Stayed here as part of a tour group. Hotel is right on the beach (beach is very polluted). Balcony looks straight onto an old run down shack. Can't really see beach. Bed bugs were found to have attacked a few people in our group. Rooms weren't cleaned under beds. Very little hot water for showers. Included breakfast/pool is in hotel...

Stayed for 2 nights. Got in late and no one was at the hotel (despite being informed of my arrival time), thankfully the staff at the main hotel next door were able to help. All 'facilities' (pool, restaurant, etc) are at the hotel next door. Left with bed bug bites.

The room was great, so much better than we expected for the price. It was spotlessly clean and the only hotel we stayed in the whole of Sri Lanka where they had thoughtfully provided a plug-in mosquito repellent. I can't recommend it highly enough, largely because the staff could not have been more kind or friendly. We had expected it...

We stayed in this hotel two weeks and liked it a lot! First we were a bit spectical because we had red bad comments about this hotel, but when we came to hotel, we were really positively surprised! Room was clean and a cleaning lady did her job well everyday. Location of the hotel was amazing, exactly near the beach!...

Extremely basic hotel. Big gaps under doors allowing flies and mosquitoes in. Doors and windows by communal balcony area didn’t feel that secure either. You get what you pay for and this was only going to be for an overnight stop before starting a few days travelling north….but I thought it was very overpriced for what it was. Due to...

This hotel is OK if all you want is a bed for the night- there is no proper reception area and no other facilities apart from a bed, shower, WC and that's it. You can use the hotel next door for the swimming pool and breakfast though. I cant comment on service provided, as its just a base really. I...

We chose Don's for one night in order to be close to the airport for an early morning flight the next day. But it came close to ruining our holiday. Having had some amazing experiences in a beautiful island our party of 8 ended up having a sleepless night and taking home hundreds of mosquito bites as souvenirs! Overall impression...
