4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

I stayed at this hotel last December and had a pleasant time. the staff were very nice and the balcony overlooked the sea and overall the room was pretty clean and tidy. Not luxurious but you cant expect more than that for just $40 with breakfast I suppose. I would definitely stay here next year as well. It's good to stay at a place that feels like home. Recommend the hotel to other fellow travellers

Room Tip: you can get an AC room for a more comfortable stay.I think it's $55 or $60. Upstairs rooms are m...

My wife and I originally planned on staying here for 3 nights but within 30 minutes of being here we knew right away that we would be finding another place to stay. The room was filthy when we arrived and there were no other rooms available and later in the night we would discover why. There was mold all over the place, in the bathroom, the sleeping area, every where you looked there was mold. Also at the ceiling they added plywood where the roof didn't meet the wall, which this allowed lights from the other room to come through, also you could hear everything going on in there. We settled in for the single night and left to go walk the beach and find dinner. When we got back to go to sleep we came to the realization this was going to be all but impossible. We got settled in and around 9:30pm a large group of people decided to start playing drums, and signing very loudly. I went down and spoke to the man that was working that night and he did nothing about it. They played clear into the night, around 12:30am they finally stopped playing. The next morning we woke up to pack and all of a sudden the people playing the drums decided to start playing them outside our door at 8am.

The only good thing about this place is the person that runs it, he was very kind and had no issues with letting us leave. I would highly recommend finding another place to stay in Unawatuna.

Have stayed here many times during my travels to Sri Lanka. A quiet little place just meters from the beach. Great, clean rooms, excellent service. Meals are always delicious, and the owner Mr Goonawardena is always a pleasure to talk to! Will definitely recommend for an enjoyable experience.
