We stayed longer than expected, because we had such a great time there. The rooms are quite big, with large beds (for tall people) and clean bathrooms (for sri lankan standards). You can eat breakfast and dinner by the ocean or you can sit in front of your bungalow on lovely porches :) The owner is really nice, gets you... More

We arrived to half empty Panorama Rock, staff looked suprised and not welcoming from the begining. We were 2 couples and I asked for upper rooms (I asked for it in email after I made my reservation). They said: Not today. Next morning, I asked again 3 times, but got rejected every time. At noon staff told me they are... More

We stayed here three nights and were very happy with everything. Nice and clean room and bathroom. There is no hot water, but in the heat, it is not a problem. We highly appreciated the terrace which was attached to the room with a nice and quiet sitting area, nice setting amongst palms and a beautiful restaurant's location directly facing... More

Compared to other Asian countries you get in Sri Lanka very little for your money: For this rate I 've got in Viet Nam or Indonesia (Bali) a room with a flat-screen TV, Air Con, daily cleaning and above all a minibar. Not here! The beach spans several miles, but there are many wild dogs. Take care about you stuff... More

The best spot at the beach just in front of the rocks. We continued our stay with 3 days as it was so good to feel so relaxed and at home somewhere. Thanks to the friendly staff, very caring but relaxed at the same time, and the comfortable bungalows and great Location. Thanks for the great time, hopefully we can... More

What a great place. I stayed for 3 nights, for 2 of those nights I had the entire guest house to myself. Stay in the main bungalow right at the front - you can hear the waves crashing from your bed and not a sound of a bus or a tuk tuk or anything else. Room is great - big... More

My Boyfriend and I found this place randomly and loved it so much! We did not book in advance and was able to get a private "hut" right away. We were in the room located closest to the water so it was a real treat. Room was nice and clean. The food was excellent, we ate many meals there. The... More

A very pleasant spot. Right on the beach, with chairs available, and opposite the lagoon, with possibilities of boat trips. Far enough down the beach road to be very quiet, but still close enough to be able to stroll into town, along the road or the beach. Staff friendly and helpful. Food OK, all freshly prepared ("best banana pancakes in... More

Place looked nice, tucked away under some palms, right in front of the beach. But I wasn't quite happy with the service. A young men seemed to be running the place and he was not very welcoming. He didn't seem to like his job (or our presence). Food was nothing special and breakfast actually not nice at all. The butter... More
