“Great little hotel on the beach”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

6 of us stayed in this great little hotel on the beach in a perfect position. Hotel was clean, staff were like family to us, the hotel has a bar on the beach and the staff are all amazing. if you are looking for an authentic experience in a great little hotel - this is the place for you.

Internet connectivity was a little iffy but the rest was perfect.

Perfect location you literally step out of the hotel on to the beach, excellent staff, very clean rooms, really enjoyed our stay! Cant be a wee bit noisy but nothing over the top. The town of Unawatuna is quite a charming place with friendly locals.

A perfect place to stay in Unawatuna, where nothing is too much trouble for the wonderful staff. The building is newly refurbished with a contemporary design and, whilst on the road, is quiet and with easy access in moments, to the beach, restaurants, bars, etc. I would stay again in a heartbeat!

We had a booking from the 3 - 6 january 2014. We are writing this review on the 4th because we left the hotel directly the morning after our arrival. There were stains on the (supposedly clean) sheets, ants in the bathrooom, dogs barking outside the door all night and the noise made it impossible to sleep. We were also denied any refund. Furthermore the breakfast was the worst one yet in sri-lanka.

It is the best lodging experience in Sri Lanka. we did not receive such warm and loving treatment anywhere. Janaka, the director, is undoubtedly one of the nicest people we met, always smiling and want to help. The location is great (in the central area of the beach). We took a double room with all the facilities (WI FI, LCD TV, air conditioning, mini bar and more ..). Each time we returned from the beach to the hotel we felt that the hosts just sat and waited for us. It is highly recommended!
