We found this place had an eerie feel to it where you don't as much get service but have to go hunting for it. There is a separate business offering scuba trips in the same plot of land which is convenient. The room we had was clean and the beach was quite, allowing you to relax without hassle. This hotel...

The best part about this hotel is definitely the wonderful beach which is right next to hotel. but the hotel itself isn't anything special. The rooms has A/C and a fan. In our room we were unable to close the door to the bathroom and every time we took a shower the bathroom got totally flooded. The service is not...

When we reach their first they gave a room which A/C is not working properly, after we complained to them they upgrade it to another room with some extra money. those rooms were good and new. Rates are very cheap compared to 5 star hotels and those new rooms are closer to star hotel range. Never tried their food, so...

Potentially this place is perfect. End of nowhere, empty beach, ocean and you. Och yeah, and nice restaurant with simple, fresh and tasty food. But... Trash everywhere makes it irritating. Simple, made in stone rooms never get cleaned and hot water is a rear luxury. Beach is full of trush as well. Sunbeds fall apart at simple touch. And yes,...

We really enjoyed our 2 nights stay here. The first night we stayed in the cheaper rooms, which are pretty small and have a cold shower. Not bad for the discounted low season price of 2,500 though. The second night we opted for the newer rooms, which we also got discounted, for 5,000. Very nice, airy rooms, with good bathroom...

This hotel is located at the very end of the beach, immediately before the military base. The seclusion is nice compared to the popular spot on the beach, but the restaurant doesn't live up to bring relied on for three meals a day. However, a comfortable stay can be pieced together by using the bar or restaurants of the (relatively)...

Is a good place near the beatch and very peacefull but with a very poor service and not friendly people! Good food in the bar and not more expensive and with a good views. Very very slowly and not eficient service. In the next time we don't repeat in this place.

Good place to stay in front of the beach, clean, but with a really nasty service, not friendly, bar service slow...I think they don't mind nothing about turism because they think if it's not you it will be another one. So, why go a place where they don't care nothing about us and people who will come?? Food is good...

The room was very basic, but more or less clean and we were very happy to have A/C and to be right next to the beach (with a little garden). The beach is quite nice with turquoise warm water, although not overly clean and not as white as expected beaches in Sri Lanka to be. Therefore we went on a...

If you are a backpacker or like a bit of extreme this might be right up your alley. For a family with a little child this was quite bad. And we aren't too picky! Nothing in the room but 2 beds and a table. Only 2 things on the menu that we could eat. A really dirty beach with cows...
