About
Description
A great place to stay. The staff give you anything you might need and they are friendly. The guy that runs the place has a great sense of humour and their is an older lady who does a great job of your laundry. The More huts a rustic yet comfortable. They are not dirty - but they could be a bit cleaner. However, this place is miles cleaner than many other places in Arugam Bay. There were no rats and the plumbing was good - which is more than can be said for other places. I will stay there again when I return to Arugam bay. Less
