I stayed here in November 2012. The room I had was on the top floor and had a kingsize bed, ceiling fan (AC rooms available for an extra 600rps) and great balcony with a view out to the sea. Definitely request a top floor room if you go! The staff were friendly and helpful and I paid 4000LKR (plus service charge). I had a nice breakfast on the balcony in the morning, which was 400LKR and they catered to my vegan diet. The room itself was clean and had lots of storage. I only stayed one night but wouldn't hesitate to visit again and I strongly recommend it to anyone staying in Unawatuna.

Room Tip: Top floor - the ceiling fans are powerful so for me, an AC room wasn't necessary.

The hotel is situated on beach road a 10 yard walk to the beach itself. I had a top floor room where the views are the best and from where you can see all of Unawatuna beach. The room itself is a very good size with king sized bed and mosquito net and aircon as well as ceiling fan. A refrigerator is provided and there is a tv although it didnt work when i was there. Shower was hot at all times of the day. Breakfast was served on the spacious balcony and was very substantial and tasty. The hotel has wifi but this does not work in the top floor rooms and you need to go down to the reception area to use it. Staff are very helpful and I enjoyed the 7 nights i spent there

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor. Views are great.

I really enjoyed the location, most of the staff, and the rooms are very well furnished with quality wood. The prices seem to differ on where you get your info from?? I would stay there again if they would be kind enough to give out the password for you the wifi, they charge a good price for the room and yet hold back on something that doesn't really cost them any more to give out..

Room Tip: Check to see if you will be able to handle the smell of diesel that is coming from the back yard.

I can see that the prices fluctuate, but since I went in the low season in June my friend and I paid just 2500LKR (about $24) for a non-AC room with fan. Yes, this place is not right on the beach but it is a very short walk to the beach from here. Also, the views from the balcony are fantastic and most importantly, the room was clean and the bathroom was spotless. There was a little TV (we never turned it on) and a mini-fridge to keep our bevvies cool. Wouldn't hesitate to book this place again!

Room Tip: Don't hesitate to ask to see a room before you decide to book - if it's not high season.

I stayed at Hotel Dhammika for 20 days. The rooms have a great view of the ocean, at the center of the beach. I enjoyed being so close to the ocean and having my breakfast while enjoying the great scenery.

The staff are very friendly and trustworthy. You don't have to worry about getting ripped-off or losing your money at their hotel or anything like that. They are also very polite and very respectful of your privacy.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give this hotel a 7 for cleanliness.

There is no wifi, so be prepared to use mobile Internet while you're in the room (which is super cheap by the way). And the only English channels you can find on tv there are Al Jazeera English, and RT (both news channels). There is also no lounge, so it would be really difficult to interact with other people staying at the hotel. If you don't mind these things, go for it!
