        Very good”
        +: Family rooms are spacious and clean, good location/breakfast/pools, friendly staff. -: too expensive restaurant due to included service fee and extra taxes (+25% in total). Moreover, waiter insistently asked for even more tips....after this case we never returned there for lunch/dinner and highly recommend to eat at any other restaurant on the beach. Almost all of them are better than that in the hotel.

        excellent place for a beach side holiday ”
        We were upgraded to premium rooms without additional charges. large rooms with very big bathrooms I haven't seen such huge bathrooms in hotels Two pools with different ideas. One is a red tiled pool again not seen in Sri Lanka. The second one is a one sided glass pool and good for photography The sea food restaurant was fantastic at night. They grill what you show. Prices are comparable with adjacent restaurants. The manger at Sea food restaurant Mr.Anura was very good in hospitality. Overall the family enjoyed very well. The only thing I want to mention about the sea is it is too rough. so careful with kids

        The location of this hotel is fantastic. In the middle of the bay and on the beach. There are some great restaurants next door on the beach. Room is a bit basic but more than enough as you barely spend any time in the room anyway.

        clean and good facilities, the only big hotel in the main Unawatuna beach”
        There are many beaches in Unawatuna, the main one with restaurants oand bars only has one big hotel, this one. Good facilities, reasonably priced food and friendly staff. The pool was a wierd red colour which was quite off-putting but otherwise the hotel was great. I've stayed at many places in unawatuna and cleanliness can be an issue, but this hotel was great. Also the aircon works properly, sounds basic but it doesn't in many places and afternoons can get very hot and certain times of the year even evenings are very humid so a properly working aircon is real pleasure to have.

        Below average, half-hearted and disappointing”
        Balcony of the bedroom overlooked a busy street so had to keep curtains closed at all times. Phone was unhooked. Only one plug point available for charging so had to juggle 2 phones and kettle with this. The chair by the dresser was stained with brown patches. Dinner buffet on a Wednesday night costed 2800/- per person had a lot of variety but the taste was very average. Same goes for the next day breakfast. All in all the visit was rather disappointing. Also don't forget that all prices are excluding a 10% service charge, 2% NBT and 15% VAT, so when the final bill turned up there was an addition of 1713/- rupees in total for tax only. I guess this is the norm for hospitality industry but I come from a country where the prices are including taxes so it doesn't confuse/trick you into believing you pay less when you actually pay much more. I will not be visiting this hotel again. There are much better places now in Sri Lanka than this.

        This hotel has a great location on the bay in Unawatuna. As soon as you step onto the beach you have a couple really good sea food restaurants and you can swim right in front of the hotel in the Ocean. Plenty of parking as well.

        Calamander Unuwatuna Beach hotel is fantastic”
        We find the hotel and the location with a lot of different restaurants and water-sport possibilities absolutely fantastic. The pool-area was super and neccesary because of a lot of waves from the ocean. It is not children- frindley to bath in the ocean, bit their were two different pools, so no problem. It was cheap to get fantastic massage in the street nearby the hotel at Ranga Yoga School - a colonial relaxed place. We took a tuck tuck to Gaulle and we have had a super vacation and will deffinitely come back to the relaxed and carabean-styel Unuwatuna Beach

        Skip Unawatuna beach totally if possible. Other beaches are still much better. Still think Mirissa beach is by far the most all-rounded area down south.

        Tired accommodation. Poor food-inflexible hours. No show airport pickup. Expensive for what it was”
        Very comfy beds. Cleaned daily. Amazing beach and great situation. Very close to other restaurants on the beach that were MUCH better than the Calamander's. Staff were sometimes reluctant to help and unfriendly. A curtain change was scheduled for our room (no problem as we were out for the day). When we came back to draw them at the end of the day we realised there was one missing. I went to complain and they reluctantly sent in some workmen to fix a temporary one (despite us trying to put our children to bed). Not sure why the refurb wasn't done before high season... Cheeky changes in Happy Hour with no notice too. Friendly barmen on the whole and the location to other activities around was excellent. There are better placed out there. It was v expensive for what it was. We were happy to be leaving when our 8night stay was up.
