The hotel is well away from the restaurants, town area and any night life. A narrow lane leads to the front of the hotel. There is no beach. The room could not be darkened and the wind was noisy all night. The air conditioning was not adjustable. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was limited but well cooked. The...

Like others have said it's not a beach hotel but it is only a short walk to Unawatuna beach. The rooms are spacious, we had 2 storey accommodation with 2 bathrooms for 3 adults. The hotel itself is coming to the end of its life as a newer version of the hotel is currently being constructed next door. The greatest...

Right, so this place isn't perfect and if there were half-stars, they'd get 4.5. But I'd like to give them a 5 as their staff deserve it. We stayed here for just under a week in April 2017 when it was scorching hot - even for the locals. We had 2 room moves - the first because the room they...

I guess when I read "beach hotel" I imagined that the hotel had a beach access but it does not have one; well it does have one but its piled up with rocks so its useless to be there. The beach is walking distance away; I guess that the hotel is in building process.

The team at the hotel are really courteous and go out of their way to make it a pleasant and comfortable stay. It was our son's birthday and Nuwani was very helpful in making required arrangements. Our room was spacious and clean with a fantastic seaview. Although, the private beach is just a small area, not what we were hoping...

Our family stayed at Thaproban Pavillion for the last 4 nights of our fortnight holiday in Sri Lanka. After touring the country it was a lovely place to relax and unwind. We stayed in a large room over looking the pool and the sea. It was wonderful to watch the sunset and go to sleep to the sounds of waves...

We stayed at Thaproban Pavilion for four nights in April and could not have been happier with our time there. The staff were wonderful, and could not have been more helpful, particularly with our children - they were terrific. Special mentions go to Roshan for his relentless cheerfulness and friendly nature, but also to Suresh for his help when our...

This hotel was nice. The rooms could be updated. The staff are helpful and the breakfast is tasty. There really isn't an area for swimming and the private beach is a small area. It's not exactly the beachside oasis I was hoping for, but still charming.
