We stayed in Unawatuna a total of 5 days. We had first booked 2 days in another hotel but because it did not have a beach in front we decided to move to this hotel.
It was the best decision we made! Location was fantastic! Literally had my breakfast in front of the beach every morning. The staff are very nice and helpful and always smiling. The rooms are quite basic but they are clean.
You can lay in front of the beach with sun beds provided by the hotel. They can also give you beach towels.
After speaking to the manager, he told us 2 months back they did not have a beach in front of their hotel. Apparently something happened which moved all the sand to another side of the ocean and now they have a beach! That is why the hotel which we originally booked didn't have a beach! Manager is friendly and nice to talk to.More
