I'm loath to put the boot in as the staff seem very keen to please, but this is overpriced. The location is perfect, apart from not being able to swim at this beach. But the hotel needs to lifts its game to justify the price. Real coffee instead of a pot of instant and an urn, would make all the... More

Note - this hotel is now called Suwaya Villas, and e stayed for 3 relaxing nights after sightseeing all over Sri Lanka. We stayed in a beautiful bungalow with flowers clambering over the balcony, air con, and a view of the beautiful pool and beach. We had the place to ourselves, the beach was tropical, unspoilt and quiet, but there... More

Pro: Quiet Location in idyllic Beach, Perfect for those who want to relax with a view of Palm trees. Attentive and Good Service by Damith and his Friends. Food much better than in places of similar Price range. Contra: property would benefit from some Investment. Only Bar area is New. More privacy than at neighboring places however.

I wouldn't want to go back here. Almost no staff and no smiles from the ones that were left (but three managers, no one to make the room up, non functioning air con,no decent food, no beer, nowhere to walk except the beach, probably not a good place to swim with a strong undertow, lots of ants in the room,...

You like it when: - the van driver sent by your hotel rather stays in the airport parking 45 minutes instead of coming to greet you at the exit with a sign like everyone else, until finally he shows up when you least expected him. - the van driver was not given directions so you spend a half-hour around Tangalle...

This place has just changed its name to Sunawaya Villa because of the bad publicity about the murder here. They were very short-staffed and nobody cleaned the room or made the bed. Most of the items on the menu weren't available. There was an endless stream of large ants and the ones we squashed were still littering the floor when... More
