We booked for 2 nights and stayed for 5! The location is fantastic, yes it was expensive compared to everywhere else we stayed in Sri Lanka but at the end of our holiday it was the perfect location to relax. The hosts Jo and Claire are friendly, the meals in the restaurant are great, only a few metres to the...

I have mixed feelings about this stay. First the good things: - Owners are great, helpful and very friendly; - The Cottages are beach front in a beautiful place in Uppuvelli; - The food in the bar is good and has a good selection of national and international dishes; - Big room with AC and decent wifi. Now, the not...

Fantastic place to stay, we had 4 nights there whilst following the cricket around and it was a highlight of our 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. As everyone has mentioned Jo and Clare could not have been better hosts, great sense of humor. Sorry we did not top the 96 pots of tea. Kidneys may have given out. Fantastic value...

We were staying in another hotel, but from the first time we came to have lunch here, Jo and Claire made us feel like home! Their friendly approach and excellent food made us come back every day. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, you have a big range of choices and all served with a big smile! At night you have diner...

This place is absolutely awesome. The views on the quiet beach are wonderful, either from the restaurant or from (most of the) cottages. The rooms are clean and, although a bit 'no frills', have everything you need: ac, good bathroom, clothes rack, etc. Jo manages the property with passion and attention, with a lot of care for the (domesticated) wildlife...

This is not a super fancy place. But if you are like me, and appreciate the romantic, sort of hippy vibe of beach side shacks, but desparately need clean sealed, bug free interiors with continuous impervious surfacing, then this is for you. the location, directly on the beach, cant be beaten. The ocean is wonderfully swimmable. The cafe does a...

Great location on the beach, had a lovely stay. Owners are warm and friendly. Food in restaurant good, can recommend the samosas. Pricey compared to other options but it does have one of the best specs on the beach, not far from the more upmarket trinco blue hotel.

The golden beach cottages are top! Lovely cottages, very nice design and equipped with handy extras (beach towels, bucket for cleaning sandy feet etc!). We had the family room which had front sea view. Large room for 5 with a sitting area and a nice terrace. The restaurant Tonic's is a great place to sit and have breakfast, lunch or...
