Beautiful Beach view, for dinner. Our room, bathroom was big, clean, good beds. New airco and good fan. We asked if there was a drivers accomodation. The owner Said he had an driver accomodation. Our friend/driver got a Tiny storage room and half his bed was wet in the night from the heavy rain and they closed the door in... More

The beach and beachrestaurant/-bar of Janus Paradise Rest are fantastic! We loved dining right on the beach. The rooms are just fine. The sea is quite rough, so it's great that they also have a pool to relax in. There's a bit of noise from the street and railroads behind the hotel, but that's something every hotel on the beach...

Love the layout of this small but beautiful place. Rooms very clean, decorated lovely. Beach bar and restaurant have wonderful views and right on the sand. Staff were friendly as was Janus, we were the only guests and felt right at home. Only downside was you have to pay cash for your stay and we were caught out.

During my 4 month stay in Sri Lanka I've been at this restaurant countless times. Good food and not expensive. The staff is very friendly and most of the staff speak good English. The menu is simple, the food is freshly prepared and tastes great. I recommend the sweet and sour chicken or prawns. Beautiful location, right on the beach.

Surely not cheap+sevice tax. Nice place on the beach. Service is slow-at least they told me i have to wait. Fried calamaries-just average.probably cooking oil was not warm enough so was a bit oily.. Rice curry seems to be ok and quite good. Have not tried other food ..

My husband and I are Canadian and live in Dubai. When we go on Asian Beach holidays we love to embrace the cheap & cheerful, feet in the sand, casual beach restaurants for good seafood. We stayed near by at Thejan Beach Cabanas but the food there was not good so we tried most things on the beach. We soon... More

The restaurant was empty when I arrived and I was seated next to the beach with a nice view. Unfortunately it went downhill from there. The service was extremely slow, but then my main course was brought out before I was even half way through my starter. Also the dogs, which were very friendly, were also a nuisance. In fact... More
