I really loved this place: It's right on the beach and it got a tranquil vibe which made me stay double as long as intended. The food was good and the beer cold, the room was clean and cost R2000/night, so it was really the perfect place to spend a lot of days in the hammock

The rooms were lovely and clean and we had our own balcony. The rooms itself are steps away from the beach which is great as the view is stunning. The owner was very helpful and organised our safari tour.

The location is nice, although you can't swim right in front of the hotel. The area is nice and clean, and the rooms are OK. No ac and hot water in most rooms. No cleaning of the rooms (2nights). We paid via hotels.com, but the person managing the place claims they have no account at this site, and that He...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
