Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

Very clean and comfortable with four poster beds with nets plus ac. Excellent location close to the beach and other restaurants and bars. Just a short walk to main road to get local buses to nearby places.
Staff here are very friendly and the service is great. Breakfast included was super, and great size again service great.

I found it a bit pricey first, but it has a very good location (2 min walk from the beack), we were offered a complimentary welcome drink and complete breakfast included (eggs, lots of toast, juice and tea). Our room was nice and despite it was right next to the front desk it was not noisy at all during all night. The owners are a local family and are very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend it.

Мы отдыхали в Унаватуне с 20 февраля по 6 марта 2014 года. Перед поездкой мы долго искали отель и,наконец, остановили свой выбор на отеле Bay Watch. Мы приехали поздно вечером, нас встретила сама хозяйка отеля Таксила. Было приятно, что после долгой дороги нам предложили охлажденные смузи. В первое время мы жили в отдельных (наши друзья в двухместном, мы - в трехместном) номерах.номера чистые и уютные. В них есть все, что нужно - кондиционер, вентиля тор, горячая вода, широкие и удобные кровати. В стоимость номера входили завтраки. Они были достаточно простыми, но очень вкусными - шри-ланкийский омлет, сосиски, тосты, джем, чай, кофе и, конечно, фрукты: папайя, бананы, арбуз, джек-фрут, ананас. Вечером мы ужинали или в кафе нашего отеля, или в каком-нибудь другом. Позже мы переселились в апартаменты на. Первом этаже с большой кухней, столовой и холлом. Иногда покупали на рынке в Галле креветки и рыбу (тунца и саргана), и готовили сами. В отеле работает очень доброжелательный персонал, который всегда готов выполнить любую вашу просьбу. Каждые два дня в отеле делали уборку и меняли постельное белье Ии полотенца. Хочется сказать несколько хороших слов о хозяйке нашего отеля. Таксила очень отзывчивый и внимательный человек. Каждое утро она общалась со всеми своими постояльцами, все ли в порядке. По нашей просьбе она покупала нам фрукты и организовала интересную экскурсию в Сигирию. Мы проехали по большей части центральной Шри-Ланки, через красивейшие горы Нувара Элии и Канди с чайными плантациями и водопадами. На ночь мы остановились в отеле Amaya Hills, недалеко от Канди, который нам забронировала Таксила и который принадлежит ее сестре. В один из вечеров Таксила пригласила нас на ужин с карри, тушеным тунцом и другими, очень вкусными блюдами шри-ланкийской кухни. Я рекомендую этот отель всем, кто хочет провести свой отпуск в. Унаватуне, в гостеприимной Шри-Ланке. Таксила, спасибо за все! Надеюсь,что мы еще вернемся! We rested in Unawatuna from February 20 to March 6, 2014. Before the trip we've been looking for a hotel, and finally chose the Hotel Bay Watch. We arrived late in the evening, we were greeted by the hostess herself Takhsila. It was pleased that after a long journey we were offered chilled smoothies. At first we lived in separate (our friends - in a double, we are in a triple) rooms, very clean and cozy. They have everything you need - air conditioning, ventilation, hot water, wide and comfortable beds. The room rate includes breakfast. They were simple enough, but very tasty - Sri Lankan omelette, sausage, toasts, jam, tea, coffee and, of course, fresh fruit: papaya, bananas, watermelon, Jack Fruit, pineapple. In the evening we had dinner in the cafe of our hotel, or some other. Later we moved to an apartments on the ground floor with a large kitchen, dining room and lounge. Sometimes we bought tiger shrimps and fish in the market in Galle and prepared ourselves. The hotel has a very friendly staff who are always ready to fulfill any of your request. Every two days they did the cleaning and changed the bed linens and towels at the hotel, I want to say a few nice words about our hotel owner. Takhsila is very responsive and attentive person. Every morning, she talked with all its lodgers, everything was in order. At our request, she bought us fruits and organized an interesting excursion to Sigiriya. We drove the most part of central Sri Lanka, through the beautiful mountains of Kandy and Nuwara Eliya with tea plantations and waterfalls. At night we stayed at the hotel Amaya Hills, near Kandy, which was reserved by Takhsila and which belongs to her sister. One evening Taxila invited us to have a dinner with curry, braised tuna and others, very delicious Sri Lankan cuisine. I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to spend their vacation in Unawatuna, in welcoming Sri Lanka. Takhsila, thanks for everything! I hope we will be back!

Came at night, couldn't find places around Unawatuna, this hotel had two rooms. We decided to stay 1 night and find a better place in the morning. But this Bay Watch hotel we found very good, so we stayed here for all our vacation. Good cuisine, good cook, the owner of hotel is very helpfull and friendly. Also very democrative price, may be one of the best around. Feels like home!

After a total 25 hour trip from London, we arrived in Unawatuna to find that our hotel booking, which was made through Agoda, was not going to be honoured.
Fortunately, Hotel Bay Watch and Thakshila, a fantastic hostess, came to our rescue, liaising with Agoda to ensure we would have somewhere pleasant to stay. We have spent three wonderful weeks here taking in Christmas and the New Year.
Thakshila has really pulled out all the stops, to ensure that our stay here would be memorable. She has even prepared a complimentary Sri Lankan meal for us. All the staff here are very willing and helpful, even though their English is a tad limited.
I don't usually take reviews very seriously, due to my mistrust of the views of others, but this is at least an honest one, and I can thoroughly recommend Hotel Bay Watch, Galle. (Actually in Unawatuna).
