Had a Wonderful four days stay here, the hotel is small but extremely clean and welcoming! We took a room upstairs, and it had a exceptional view of the sunset. All in all it was classy, had everything we needed and also it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Although the hotel is situated just off a main road there...

We stayed for only one night because everywhere else near Una seemed to be booked (it is Chinese New Year when we went). I will preface my rating of 3 stars as 3 stars for a 2 star lodge. As is typical for a 2 star lodge, the room is sparse, linens were old, towels were thread bare. But, everything...

Nice spacious room with a/c, free water, tea and coffee in the room. Room at first floor with balcony overviewing the beach, free wifi and beach beds in the shade. Normal breakfast and good service. No noice except the waves - I slept like an angel in heaven. Fully recommended.

We stayed at Dalawella Beach Resort for a night and were extremely impressed! Considering the low price we paid we had an amazing, spacious and clean room with a gorgeous ocean view balcony and one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in throughout all of Asia! The staff were amazing at all times and were also really helpful...

This tiny hotel (8 rooms) is about a mile from the "town" and, when full, holds 18 people. No pool just straight onto a deserted beach. Very simple, clean and friendly. We only had a week there but it was perfect. Incredibly helpful staff but take a hair drier!

Hotel is directly on the beach and that's great. Warm Indian Ocean waters. Fantastic. But that is all you can say in a positive sense. A very basic room. Not even a TV in the room. All very basic and about 2 star category if generous. Yet it was an expensive rate coming with it. Be warned. This isn't a...

Usually when booking a hotel, the majority of us search for a place smack dab in the middle of the action, a location that is central to all the attractions. Dalawella has the benefit of being removed from the hub-bub of overcrowded beaches, dangerously narrow streets and the never-ending sounds of the notorious Tuk-Tuk bird, but close enough to dive...

This hotel is really bad! We booked and paid for a room with a balcony with booking.com. We stayed on 19th and 20th February 2014. The manager was unable to provide a room with a balcony so we had to stay in a ground floor room with no privacy. As others have commented the room was dingy, the towels and...

Great location on a beautiful quiet beach but this place was the pits. My husband and I stayed here recently. The staff were rude and didn't care. The rooms were very dated. I think the pictures on the website are very cleverly taken with good light. They were very dark and dingy. The first room offered was downstairs but there...
