Terribly dirty place! Totally disgusting! I never been so dirty hotel like this. Pillow smells, ants in the room, dust is everywhere. No warm water. Poor breakfest and coffee is terrible. I dont recommend this hotel.

Visited cool beach hotel in 2015, when still partially under construction. Best experience within the serene location. Good food with a beer. No rush by employees. Great beach and nice shady areas to relax. Many small crabs going around the beach at night. Extremely clean and spacious rooms. A good getaway place. Not for those seeking luxury but those looking for adventure...

We had planned on staying for two nights but left a few hours after arriving. Pool very dirty, dangerous cables everywhere, construction noise. Overall it is still a construction site! No reception, difficult to find staff, smelly fish covered in flies out on the counter without any cooling for fat too long. Beach smaller than it seems, view onto a busy road. Wouldn’t recommend staying. This was the worst place during our stay and we visited lots of other hotels during our holiday, same category but much better! We left once we finally food someone. Had to pay for one night. The owners are nice, I am sure they mean well but the hotel is just not very well maintained. Mattresses placed in the breakfast/ dinner area, work tools everywhere and dirt

This hotel has a perfect location where both people who can swim well and not really will feel comfortable and enjoy swimming. There is an area on the beach where a small water section is surrounded by stones that break waves, allowing you to just lay down in the water and relax... The place is perfect for relaxation and slowing down from your daily race before and after your vacation. The hotel rooms are big, air-conditioned and clean, with big ceiling fans that will shuffle cool air from the air conditioner nicely. Hint - do not bring food to your room, even leaving it inside the fridge won’t save you from ants that will find the way to enjoy that food or at least its crumbs. Breakfasts are simple - omelets, bread, butter, jam, pot of coffee / tee, bananas, pancakes with coconuts & honey. You can also buy yourself a meal for lunch and dinner and for that the place offers quite extensive choice of dishes. Hint: always ask (in all restaurants in Sri Lanka) do not add spicy to your meal, actually saying “zero spicy, please”. Please don’t get me wrong - it is not a complain, I do realize that adding species is a local way of making sure food will last longer in such hot and humid conditions, but for people outside Sri Lanka having so much species in the meals maybe not really what they want to experience-:)) I saw some people posted a picture of a lizard in a room, well it’s not s lizard but Gecko, which never grows bigger than 5-6 cm and actually very shy and helpful as it helps to get rid off some occasional insects in the room. We actually liked that fellow that loved in our room. We miss him / her already :-) Our suggestion for a room, ask for a one on the third or fourth floor to enjoy the view on the Indian Ocean, which I guarantee you will be missing the day you’ll leave the country. The hotel owner offers a tuk-tuk with a driver that was extremely helpful and polite. He can gets you to Hikkaduwa place that is the nearest relatively big towns nearby (~4 km or 2 miles away) or to drive you a feee tour that the host offers. On that tour you’ll see a turtle farm, tea plant and Tsunami museum (such s devastating page of Sri Lanka history that it brings tears to my eyes as I’m typing this review, make sure you visit this place).

Positives: - Beautiful View - lovely clean beach - had a mini fridge in room Negatives: - unfriendly staff: Pressured to leave early by staff members I.e at 8:00am in the morning!! We came down for breakfast for them to pressure us into leaving when breakfast was running late, we never ended up having breakfast! - Poor first room: the first room we were put in had no AC working so we were moved - Toilet of our 2nd room: was broken so everytime you sat in jt you almost died - Hot Water doesn’t work - plug didn’t work: used plug once and then it was stuck from that moment on - has no feel like a proper hotel - the foyer is so dark and creepy, it’s not comfortable. - At 10:00 the breakfast wasn’t ready and the milk given to us for our tea had gone sour with bits in. - unfortunately would not recommend this hotel as it is sooooooo overpriced for what you actually get, it’s appalling!
