II stayed at the Curry Bowl several years running before the tsunami. It was a great place to stay; right by the beach, friendly staff, reasonable prices and great food. I thought the tsunami had been particularly bad on that part of the coast, and that this charming hotel must have been swept away; but I saw someone else's review from 2010, and I am so pleased it is still going. They may have had to do extensive repairs, but it was lovely then and is probably nicer now, so I would recommend it to anyone except those who insist on soulless 'international'' standards.
