We where chilling on the beach at the front of the Samaru while the owner of the hotel showed up and yelled us away. When we where asking why he grab a shovel wanted to fight with it.

I had a bad experience learning to surf here. The surf instructor was unreliable and dishonest. He cancelled the lesson twice (one day he was hangover and the second time he got injured). It took me 2 days to get my money back. When I complained about this situation the hotel and surf staff weren't interested in helping and turned... More

My family and I came here to surf and tour South Sri Lanka . We found everything was perfect and safe for the children. The wave out fron of the hotel is perfect for beginners to intermediate surfing. Kabalana is close if you like more power in the waves. The staff are super friendly and honest so you will not...

We spent just one night and enjoyed being close to the beach watching the surfers. We had a room which was basic but more than adequate. Comfortable bed with mosquito net and fan (also a/c) and good shower. No fridge but they happily put a few bottles in the kitchen fridge for us. The fish meal was fine but there... More

Stayed here over the weekend for one night. The rooms fared much better than expected (for USD 70 per night, BB). They were spacious and clean, with a well functioning AC, and the bathrooms were clean. Not much of a view from the room but that didn't matter because the hotel itself has a great location right on the beach... More

We stayed here for 4 nights because my friends wanted to surf - Samaru is perfectly located on the beach and they offer surfing lessons and board/equipment hire. We booked double rooms but ended up in triples which were a good size with lots of storage and surface space. Wifi was good but didn't reach our rooms which were on... More

If you are into surfing and a quiet holiday, this is a ok place to stay. Go somewhere else to eat and ask for a room in the new part of the hotel, f ex room 16. The old part has dirty, shabby bathrooms.

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week in a deluxe room at Samaru and would recommend it to anyone. The staff are some of the most hospitable we've ever come across, our deluxe room was spacious with a gorgeous four poster bed & mosquito net and the food was consistently delicious every night, the fresh fish BBQ and the...
