Me and a few friends stayed in a triple room, which was a great value for money. The 'Certificate of Excellence for 2012' given by TripAdvisor (along with other awards) is proudly displayed at the entrance. The staff were friendly, the room was modern, clean and had a small balcony at the back which gives a view to the forest. It's very quiet and green around the resort. Lunch and dinner is available a la carte at reasonable prices.No alcohol is served, so you might find the alcohol shop down the street useful. Although it is not right next to the beach, it is only 3-4 minutes of walking from the resort. As for negative points, I felt the breakfast variety could be improved, since it is a bed/breakfast place. There are two swimming pools and Ayurveda services(for a fee). If you are thinking about getting dinner from the resort, you will have to place your order by 6pm. If you are a late eater, good luck as there are no restaurants around the area and most shops close by 9:30pm-10:00pm. Overall, we found the place nice, and we enjoyed our stay in Unawatuna. A definite recommendation to anyone who is finding a difficult time picking a place, as it is one of the best deals you can get around the seaside town.
