good location
ambience beach food
A very comfortable stay with our room overlooking the the Indian ocean. Our children enjoyed the beach and food. The saefood is reasonably priced and very fresh.The staff very pleasant. They should have a swimming pool on this premise. That was the only setback. Elizabeth, Malaysia

Great location, friendly staff
Great spot right on the beach, penthouse suite was terrific- no pool but could use one at their other property- a regular shuttle between would be great. All staff very helpful smiling & friendly - would recommend to couples

Definitely not value for money
Only the location and the beach
The hotel looks good but a few things make the stay not enjoyable, not sure whether they are applicable to all rooms though. However, they should be applicable to none of the rooms for that price. 1. Came back to my room at night to find there was no hot water. After a wait of 10 minutes to get someone to come to my room I was told that they were working on it and that it would take 2 or 3 hours to solve. Next morning, still no hot water so I ended up taking a cold shower because I was in a hurry. Other customers did not seem bothered so I'm guessing some rooms did have hot water, I guess you just have to be lucky. 2. Internet in the room is cr*p. Not because the internet provider is bad (although it is, but it's the same everywhere in Sri Lanka) but just because they didn't think it was necessary to have coverage in every room. So you basically have a very weak signal and you're lucky if you can send one email per hour. 3. TV is cr*p as well. Nobody goes to Unawatuna to watch movies, however still good to catch a movie after a long day. You'll definitely not be able to do that with 2 and a half channels and the worst reception on the island. 4. Staff is very long as they have something in mind to sell you. When you start asking simple questions like "Can I smoke here?" or "Are you sure Agoda did not charge me yet for this room?" you start getting inappropriate or even slightly aggressive comments.

Fabulous service and lovely hotel
Staff, service, location
We stayed here for 5 nights on our honeymoon. The best thing was the exceptional service. Staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and willing to do anything to accommodate.The location is sensational- right on the beach and minutes walk to nearby restaurants, shops etc. Stayed in deluxe room with spacious balcony, but sadly overlooked a car park. Room was clean and comfortable and bathroom was surprisingly luxurious, although the shower temperature was very unstable- cool one second and scalding the next. Basic toiletries provided. Food in restaurant was pretty good. The 'pasta Sri Lankan style' was very tasty. Breakfast was comprehensive- Western style had a range of fruit or juices, toast, cereal/porridge and eggs. We requested the Sri Lankan breakfast (you need to ask for this the day before) which came with string hoppers or roti, curry, sambal and dahl. Delicious! Overall, we loved staying here and there wasn't much to fault. It would have been nice for them to do something to make our stay particularly special as we were on our honeymoon, but we were very happy nonetheless!
