Beach front rooms with nice views over the beach. Rooms tastefully designed. A/c TV. Nice bathroom. Friendly staff. Family run and we met numerous other guests who have come back over many years. Restaurant is great also. Seafood bbq delicious.

Do not go here. We asked to be seated in beach chairs and the staff said yes as long as you buy drinks. So we did and then the male staff harassed us to leave as soon as we bought drinks demanding we order food straight away. Really rude and aggressive and yelled that at us that he had to...

Me and some friends stayed here for almost a week. The rooms are pretty and clean. Service and staff is amazing. Would definitely go back to this place. The staff was at our service right away. Had a great stay. We ate some great seafood at the hotel. I really recommend this hotel.

I had a couple of cocktails here and we had dinner here once. I had mojitos and unfortunately all of them had a whole bunch of lime seeds in them, not very tasteful when they pop in your mouth through the straw. Dinner was not so nice. Pasta was poorly cooked and the cuttlefish in the pasta was extremely dry....

We went to Lucky Tuna a number of times during our 4 day stay. Cocktails are good and coffee is pod coffee. The highlight is evening dining on the beach with the sand under your feet. There was plenty of fresh seafood to select from (on ice on the beach). We love whole fish, bbq prawns and squid. We were...

We stayed here for one night in Unawatuna. We went from hotel to hotel to decide where to stay and decided on the Lucky Tuna for one main reason- the beachfront rooms with big balconies overlooking the ocean!

Clean, sunny, modern room, easy access to the beach and in the middle of the action in Unawatuna. There were some tasty noodle dishes on the menu and the bar/restuarant gets quite lively at nite. Waking up in that room and watching the sunrise is what dreams are made of.

“The 4 rooms are all up a quite steep and narrow winding staircase so children might find it a bit of a challenge! Also the sea can be rough with a very sudden shelf on the beach- watch over the little ones!”
