Very friendly staff trying to help with everything, breakfast and dinner are optional (pre-booking the day before required). Clean/large size room with mosquito cover over the bed, luckily we were further in the back of the house because the road in front is very busy/loud with lots of traffic. It can be a bit of a challenge getting over the street to the nearby beach depending on the time of the day. The local bus stops nearby and costs 25 rupees pP to/ and from Galle. TukTuk for the same distance was offered at 400. A number of nice breakfast/lunch/dinner options nearby in Unawatuna opposite the busy road. We enjoyed our stay with the super friendly hosts!

Brilliant guest house, located 5 minutes from the beach. Lovely big room, air conditioned, perfect bathroom, superb big bed. The service was simply stunning! The owners and their staff were so friendly, so attentive to any needs or wants, nothing was too much trouble for them. They even saw us in the local supermarket, stopped and asked if we needed a lift back to the guest house! We would recommend Sam’s to everyone, and was sad to leave.

The family that run sam’s guest house are so lovely. We were welcomed with smiles and led to a lovely cosy room with a comfortable bed, personal balcony, great A/C & great shower. We stayed for 4 nights and had dinner there twice and breakfast every day. The dinner is cooked by the family’s mother (so orders need to go in early in the day) & the food is gorgeous - tastes like genuine home cooked food which is a relief for a couple who have been traveling for 2.5months. The breakfast is really generous and tasty aswell. What makes sam’s guesthouse special though is the family working there. Always on hand to help throughout breakfast, dinner or planning a day ahead. They really are a fab, happy bunch! The house is located 1 minute walk from the beautiful beach, which has plenty to do & eat. The house itself also has a spacious balcony area where you can sit out, play board games or just chat & chill. Thanks so much for a lovely stay!

Stayed a couple of days Sams....fantastic. A beautifully warm, genuine family run guesthouse..... The family could not do enough for you... Lovely big spacious clean rooms....and a nice big area to sit out on a night sipping cold Lion beers. Will be staying there again in the future that's for sure... P.S. Make sure you try the Sri Lankan breakfast...its amazing...never seen as much food available for breakfast....all cooked by their lovely mother. Thanks."Sams".
