Location: excellent with a nice beach . We choose a ground floor room so that we can use the garden too. Room : small with all amenities. The bed was small even though they mention it to me a king size. We you have younger kids opt for a triple room Food : the meals are on a set menu however not tasty. The hotel really needs to improve this aspect. Special it is not kids friendly Staff : friendly and very helpful

This was the first time we stayed at this hotel. It's right on the Unawatuna Beach with a substantial private beach front. The rooms were cosy and had all the basic necessary amnesties. More than anything the staff and service of the able staff under Manageress Devika was exceptional. They were very accommodating and the food was the most delicious we had for some time from a resort hotel. The servings were also plenty full even for the adult children. Ideal location for a family or group holiday specially if your need is for tasty Sri Lankan dishes.
