Very clean rooms and well organised. From our experience of Hotels is Germany, this was typical of such hotels and well run. The rooms are a little spartan and the "double" bed is two single beds put together, German style. We found the owners kind and responsive once we'd engaged with them. The four cabanas in the garden are not particularly private but the two beachside cabanas do have wonderful views.
It is much MUCH quieter than accommodation in downtown Unawatuna.
We did a three day dive package, which was good value for money and the dive team were terrific. The hotel and dive centre are 2.5 km apart but only five minutes by tuk tuk.
The food was good but not exceptional and the kitchen was exceptionally clean and the chef was helpful in cooking requested special diet meals.
We found all the hotel team friendly and helpful.
In summary: it is a safe place place to stay but with little ambience or character. We are certainly considering diving and staying at their new dive centre near Pigeon Island.
