It's not that expensive here for what you get. Stuff is really nice and one woman which has been to Europe takes care. You can feel her Hand!! Restaurant is the best Seafood Barbecue in Trincomalee!!! Go there!

We ate for lunch at Shiva's and we appreciated nice atmosphere on the beach, and the typical food : fried rice egg and chicken, fried noodles and it looks not too much expensive. Very good adress if you eat quick, cheap, and good food!!!!

Great place in trincomalee. Inexpensive, delightfully clean and lovely staff. Highly recommended. We initially booked 5 people for 2 nights but extended it to 4 because we were satisfied with the hotel. Very accomadating

Reception staff rude and uncaring and very unwelcoming. No hot water, bathroom was dirty and mouldy. Window wouldn't close it was tied to the bars on the window with string and the door was quite a bit smaller for the frame so always had mozzies in the room. No towels, we had to chase them up. We stayed for 4...

We booked this hotel because everything else was full. We advise you to trie something else first. This was the most basic room in our whole stay in Sri Lanka but also the most expensive stay! Price for the room was around 60 EUR per Night if you book via booking.com. If you book a room on sight it will...

This place could be amazing. The location is fantastic; a short walk to a stunning beach. There are sun beds and cabanas to use and it is really beautiful. It is possible to book snorkelling tours to Pigeon Island from the purple hut next door. The evenings were amazing; every night we ate at Shiva's. The atmosphere is perfect; candle...

This place should be so much better given its beachside location but it misses out because of the appalling service at the restaurant. The evening BBQ is good but be prepared to wait. Not exactly friendly either - ditto much of the Uppuveli beach area.

Amazing location right on the beach front in rustic Uppeveli. A great place to relax as a family with beautiful waters of the Indian Ocean. The guesthouse is welcoming and friendly and simple. Great spot to go snorkelling or dolphin tours.

Stayed here for 4 nights in a large family room. Has lots of positives: large room, good a/c, clean, friendly and helpful staff, proximity to beach with sun loungers. The negatives to be fair are fairly ubiquitous to hotels in SL in this price range: poor bathroom, noise etc. Nice restaurant on beach at night with burning lanterns but food...

The sunchairs at the beach are just great! The beach is clean and beautiful. The food in the restaurant (especially in the evening when they put the tables on the beach with candles and fresh seafood bbq) is good. The service is rather slow during the day. The rooms are simple guesthouse room with or without AC and with hot...
