Very big room. Nice balcony (a little small for the room). The air conditioning is very strong which is great because it is so hot outside. The pool is quite small but the hotel is on the beach front so it didn't bother us. Breakfast is quite limited but the lunch and dinner menu is so good. I definitely recommend... More

This was our hotel for the week. We really enjoyed having this at our doorstep each day. Spent most of our lunches here and enjoyed the chill out zone a few afternoons. A wide range on the menu. The BBQ seemed smaller pickens from what we observed at the others but still had the same stuff. Highly recommended.

Nice little spot for some lunch on the beach. Great views and good value for money. The lion brewery is shut down for flooding though so there was no beer available

Our tuk-tuk driver recommended this place and it was a hit. The food was fantastic, really good value for money and you just can't beat the view of sitting on the beach at sunset! Owner is super nice and friendly!

Laid back and very good setup with different seating options. We had a open sea view seating and food was very good. Had two meals here. Only the first time we felt the rice was a bit uncooked but not much complaints. Their srilankan curry with rice is very good

Tartaruga is one of the most budget friendly restaurants in Unawatuna. You get your moneys value and has free beach facilities. Prawns and the beer are cheaper than most of the restaurants, the portions are satisfying enough that you want to come back again.

we have ordered seafood pasta and pizza, the pasta was extremely good and the pizza also. i have tried pasta around many places in sri lanka and this is one of the best. price is bit high, but the place is really nice for a candle light dinner.

We ordered the Grilled Sliced Tuna with boiled vegetables. We were very dissapointed. The fish was dry, did not have a good colour and didn't taste good at all. It probably was Bonito instead of Tuna. The vegetables and potatoes that came with it weren't tasty either. Good WiFi, nice location on the beach and the staff were very friendly.... More
