After being let down by another accommodation (who just didn’t bother to show up to let us in after we’d booked in advance) we found Cozy Bay, by which time we were pretty p*ssed off and stressed as we’d had to trail up and down Aragum Bay on Xmas eve trying to find somewhere to stay.

The manager was lovely and very accommodating, they had no beer but he sent out to get us some. The hotel is clean and the rooms are nice. No hot water which was annoying.

We had breakfast once and it was barely edible.

The hotel is set back from the beach so if
Your looking for somewhere with sun loungers etc on the beach, this isn’t it.

We stayed there for seven nights while visiting Arugam. It looked promising in the beginning but turned out not to be very special. Our room was of a good size, we had enough space and the bed was very comfy. Staff is friendly.
Though I was frustrated that we didn't have warm water acess in the bathroom and the toilet seat obviously didn't fit properly, cause it would always fall down and lean against your back while sitting on the toilet - not great. Furthermore staff didn't provide roomservice without me asking for it. In my eyes that should be standard in a hotel charging prices like cozy bay. Breakfast is supposed to be fancy but they fail in providing decent food. Scrambled eggs aren't seasoned and dry, they don't offer proper bread but some sort of papadam which doesn't fit the dish. Fruit plate is 400 rupies and super small - not worth it. I wouldn't go back a second time, I think there are nicer places to stay in Arugam.

We loved this hotel! Loved the food, rooms were very clean and modern, very chilled atmosphere. Definitely reasonably priced for what you get. Staff are very helpful. Breakfast was super yummy! Beds were comfortable, would definitely stay here again! A little further down the beach but makes no difference still so close to all restaurants and beach! Also get water & amazing iced tea on arrival.

Come here for a delicious iced coffee and banana and caramel pancake THE BEST ON THE ISLAND! (The normal coffe and scrambled eggs on hard popadom style roti are nothing amazing but ok - would have been better with toast and tomato ketchup or actual chilli sauce not powder).

Thank you for the best pancake in srilanka #mademyday

Based on the reviews and room rate we expected a lot more. Rooms are clean but very small and no comfortable place to sit and no view. No special atmosphere
Overpriced If you ask us. There must be more places where you can get better value for money.
