the last resort at arrogance bay”
absolutely nothing
travelling with an 11year old i wanted to stay in sri lanka in 'ok' accommodation and know where i was going before we got there. our visit to aragum bay was at the end of the season and finding accommodation online before we left was a bit difficult. i booked aragum bay surf resort thinking it will be just 'ok', the consolation being it's right on the beach. when we arrived i was quite horrified at the room and thank god i had the wisdom to only book 2 nights.this place is so over priced, service does not exist and most staff having an air of arrogance about them and the room itself was old, unmaintained and pretty grubby. i get the fact that it's a laid back surf village but it's also a working islamic fishing village with all the action happening 10mts from the door at 4am every morning bar friday, that doesn't really matter as the beds are so old and uncomfortable you can't sleep anyway. the village itself felt a bit arogant everywhere, a place for the hard core surfer.

relaxing in arugam”
the food, the location and the AC
the deluxe room is deluxe in Arugam bay standards so don't expect much - but it is value for money compared to some other options if you're looking for an AC room...the food is good and the atmosphere is relaxing...

Uncomfortable and tiring”
Location, friendly staff, good food
Fishing boats on the beach started up their motors at 4am every morning, there were rats and frogs in the rooms. The beds only had a sheet over the mattress and weren't cleaned at all. . I was moved to an air conditioned room even though I had pre payed for my room and was told I would have the room for the same price. However I soon found out if I wanted the control to turn on the air con I had to pay an extra night so I was stuck in a hot room with no opening windows with a ceiling fan. The room had hot water but the smell of raw sewerage that came out of the plug hole when water drained was sickening.

orrible”
close to the beach - nothing more
i traveled across india and many south-asian countries and i have never encountered in such a bad guest-house. we paid for a double room. the price is absolutely meaningless. the room was crumbling. i asked to change room and the answer was no. staff was very unfriendly (compare to all the people i met in sri-lanka) and they absolutely have no idea how to manage a guest-house. restaurant service was very poor: low-quality food and it also takes ages to be served. the best happening was on the second morning: i was the only person in the restaurant and it took 20 minutes to have an hot the' served - unbelievable.

On the beach, ok, but not clean”
Beach, atmosphere
It is ok to relax, although you are next to the restaurant. The sheets were not clean and the toiletwater was leaking.. But he, you only sleep there. And the location of the cabana is great with view of the ocean and Nice restaurants nearby,
