I stayed at the Kingfisher for 6 nights and I think it is the best spot on the Unawatuna Beach. It is a bit more expensive than some of the others however, worth the extra for the great sea views, great balcony and attention to detail in the rooms. The beds are comfy with excellent pillows, the lovely staff are accommodating and fun. The restaurant is mainly a Thai influence with a local twist. The seafood is very fresh and tasty.
If you learn a few words in Sinhala, you will get even better service and a friendly smile for trying!
The sandy beach (no rocks, maybe a little coral, but you are on a reef!) has come back in front of the hotel and is now a lovely place to top up a tan and swim in the clean waters. Sun beds are available, and as i write this, the owners advised me new umbrellas are on their way. Worth a night or three!
