I spent a couple of nights in one of the cottages and couldn’t get any sleep because the owners’ dogs were barking incessantly right outside my door. When I spoke to the owner his response was ‘dogs bark’ and walked away. I decided to leave and go someplace else and when I told the owner he got super angry and started yelling at me. The guys is freaking crazy and scary. Not worth it. There are lots of other places to stay at!

Second evening we come to Gecko as it plays great music, has a chilled vibe, offer great selection of dessert and ice creams/ sorbets. Dinner was ok, but would rather come back here for breakfast, cakes and desserts. A must visit when In Arugam Bay.

I recnetly went to arugam bay and loved eating and relaxing at this place. Was on of the only places the understood the concept of hygiene with great clean toilets. Staff very friendly and food was great and reasonably priced for what you get. I can recommend the gecko breakfast. Will be back

Great location and has the potential to be a great place but it’s a mess. The staff are rude, stood at either end of our table yelling over to each other the whole time we were there whilst we were having a drink, we were the only people there. The food is very overpriced compared to anything in Arugam Bay and SL. We were hoping to eat there but after we saw the prices and were treated so poorly decided against it.

We stopped by Geckos a couple of times to sit and have a drink and chill out for a bit. The staff are all quite prompt and the drinks (we had a few different juices and tea) all tasted good. We had the burger and a salad. Burger was good and they had a gluten free bun too, when asked for it. The salad was okay, less good as lots of lettuce in it- guess it depends on how you like your salad really.
