Reviewed 5 September 2016

We got the triple room upstairs. One big bed, and one small. The beds face the ocean! You are at the left corner of the Unawatuna beach stretch, so you get the full view. The windows are massive, can be opened. Small balcony, but not really an issue cos of the big window. The restaurant is downstairs on the beach. They're really friendly. They go out of the way to make your stay comfortable.

It was off season, and we were too late to find a place to find dinner. The bar guys offered to bring us dinner and when we tried to tip, they refused saying they were going anyway.

Private bathroom, but the shower is separate with just a curtain. It was fine though. Definitely the place to stay.

Cheap rooms just next to a wonderful beach , the staff was polite and the rooms okay.
The night I slept there, 4 cockroaches crept on my bed one after another , I couldn't find anyone to complain to during the night ( apparently the nightmanager was getting pissed somewhere else ) so I hadn't had the best sleep.
Left the first thing in the morning and the manager gave me 2 thirds of the room rate back.
If you stay there make sure to stay upstairs, maybe theres no cockroaches there.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my friends. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was spacious. Staff was very kind and helpful. Shared balcony had a nice view to the beach. The restaurant of the hotel was really good, allthough the staff was a bit lazy.

We stayed 2 nights in this fantastic hotel. The room is big and clean. The bed is king size and with mosquito net although it is not needed. The restaurant of the hotel offers you amazing breakfast and delicious dinners . The prices are slightly overpriced but it is really worthy . The view is absolutely paradisal !! The beach is clean and beautiful, not crowded with tourists. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I can only recommend it
