Overrated and not service driven manager ”
- nice aircon rooms - good location in arugam - friendly staff
Got there just because of the Name irritation with the surf resort, which is in purpose. For the Price we would have expected a better standard i.e. No rats in our room or at least help or an excuse for the inconvenience. The manager was just After the money and couldn't wait us to leave. Location is good and offers all opportunity to be a great hotel. Unfortunately the beach and site is dirty and not welcoming. I Arugam bay there are definitely better places available for half the price.

Beach side resort”
The cabins were large, verandah was a great place to sit and relax and watch the waves roll in.
It was right on the beach. Refreshing sea breezes. Numerous good restaurants within walking distance. I was the only guest during my three day stay. The young guy who cooked breakfast was enthusiastic, if a little inexperienced. I did much reading and writing while I was there and wifi was good. I would encourage people to investigate Arugam Bay SURFING Resort. (Don't get it mixed up with Arugam Bay SURF Resort. During low season do bargain as there was a lot of accommodation available. My only criticism was that the signage was very poor. It took me some time to find.

Basic but good location”
Location, Size of resort, and staff
This is basic accommodation in a good location but could be so much more. The room was of average cleanliness and the shower was on its last legs. The breakfast was ok and the staff were a nice enough bunch. The resort itself is in a good location..5 mins from all the restaurants and bars etc. but on it's own was quiet. They have a good little area out the front with a good view of the beach and a couple of hammocks but nobody was really using it as it looked run down. I generally go with the traveller reviews as the best rule of thumb but felt it was a little overrated here.

This is not deluxe”
The cooks dried fish curry, Cooks other curries, location
We were disappointed with the standard of the room. There was no kettle or tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The water pressure was poor making having a shower difficult. Bottled water was not supplied to the room each day. The breakfast was very ordinary. The toaster had broken ( probably for a long time ) and toast was bread warmed up in a sandwich maker. It was advertised as deluxe. For this price we expected a much higher standard. The owner had no idea what is expected by travellers like my wife and myself. I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

Great fun by the beach”
Friendly staff, flexibility of meals
Since this was the off season there were no activities anywhere in the surroundings. Arugambay is more of a medium level holiday resort. The first impressions for someone coming from a high end hotel like the Chaya wild at Yala, it is a little bit of a dissapointment. However, considering that the rating is 3 star, it did fulfill all the requirements.

Great chill out on the beach.”
Good location, comfortable chalet and great food.
We liked it very much and stayed on for an extra day. It was so relaxing and we had everything we wanted: a/c chalet with front porch overlooking the ocean. Staff were very helpful and the cook is excellent. They helped us find a guide to take us to the nearby Kumana N.P. where we saw aboundant wildlife. Other guests came here to surf.
