Had food here whilst at the beach, we didn't stay at the hotel. Two average veggie curries with the largest portion of rice you will ever see. Reasonably priced but nothing incredible. Awesome view of the beach and a lovely seating area.

The buffet was fairly expensive at 1500 rupees but there was loads of choice and it was all you can it. Very tasty indeed. Worth getting as a vege option, though the bbq fish was good (though a bit dry). Overall a great option for dinner. Candlelit by the sea.

We stayed in a beach hut above the sand with views out across the water. This was probably my favourite place in Sri Lanka. The beach here is so beautiful and unspoilt that there's hardly another soul on the sand with you. It's like something from a postcard! There's an evening buffet and BBQ on the beach that I still...

The cabanas are beautiful in their simplicity. Surrounded by coconut palm trees and flowers. You can chose your hut in front of the ocean or back in the Lagoon (perfect to sleep and relax!). We had a tree floors hut, with a nice little balcony. There is also a nice swimming pool with water from the sea. It is a... More

We moved out from Ganesh Garden Cabanas on which we were asked to pay 95$ per night. The room that we were supposed to get was given to somebody else and we were "upgraded" in a bungalow they were selling at 75$ per night. Breakfast to be paid apart (only boiled eggs, fruits, coffee and tea. Then they said that... More

It is a lovely beach setting, candlelit dinner. We chose the BBQ buffet which includes the curry selection inside. It was all very tasty, lots of flavour. The reason why it's not a 5 is because I felt they were a little stingy on the BBQ food, you pay the extra money for the BBQ and are given 3 lumps... More

We had an amazing 2 night stay at Sandys. The cabana we stayed in was on the second floor and had views of the sea. The palm leaf roof was great as it meant you could here the sound of the waves. It was just like staying in a mud hut/tree house, incredible! The staff were exceptionally friendly and assisted... More

This could have been a really fantastic place to stay at. The location is great and the bungalows and the garden are really wonderfull. Good food and so on. The problem is the manager/owner that has the worst attitude ever and a violent temper that infects the hole place. The staff seems afraid all the time and walks around like... More

Please be aware before you book this place. I stayed there only one night and it was 1 too much. Owner and manager are arogant and only nice to people who spend a lot of money there. Beach was ok but not possible to sweem as lots of giant rock in the water and waves. Dogs in the dining room... More

We had a nice cabana only 10 m from the beach. The swimming-pool was great for our small kids (2,5 and 4,5 years). The breakfast buffet and dinner buffet were great and tasty. If you walk 15 min, there is an natural swimming-pool at the beach.
