We were told it's gonna be a buffet under the full-board but when we checked in it was set menu even on the weekends. We don't mind having proper set menu but this was totally below start hotel standard. Make sure your guys don't book...More

The snorkeling at Unawatuna is not horrible. At least not for this novice and his family. You can book a boat for about 40$ for three hours. This included equipment for 2 adults and 2 children. I think the going rate is 15... More
The snorkeling at Unawatuna is not horrible. At least not for this novice and his family. You can book a boat for about 40$ for three hours. This included equipment for 2 adults and 2 children. I think the going rate is 15$ per person. You can negotiate to bring you to Jungle beach, the ship wreck and the rocks.
The coral is non existent, but the rocks/reef has abundant fish. You can see a variety of fish, but of course the visibility all depends on the wind/current. I can't even start naming all the fish, because I don't know their names, but there are a variety and they are numerous. I would say that I say at least 20 different types of fish, and more than I can count in total.
