We stayed 2 nights in Ranga´s Beach Hut. The first impression was good, everything is made of wood and also the beach hut that we got was nice and worth its price.
But now lets come to the food and the service. First, there are no prices in the menu. If there would be, no one would order anything! One dish costs almost as much as a hut for two! Fish and Chips for 1200Rs is more expensive than in England... But of course, our foult, since we forgot to ask for the price. Second, even without knowing the price, the food was bad and the dishes were very small. After this experience, we avoided eating there again. The bad surprise finally came with the bill. Third, we did not like the service. Half of the food mentioned in the menu is not available and after returning a salty, disgusting coconut juice the kitchen stuff had nothing better to do than returning it after filling it up with water.
So, what to say. Not a very convincing guesthouse, but I think you can do worse in Arugam bay.
