It wasn't as nice as we expected”
Okay so it depends what you're looking for. We were expecting it to be nicer but it does look nicer in the dark. The food was nice, big portions. The tents are ragged and ours came with a couple of rats. We, to be fair were fine with this but if you're expecting luxury this is not for you. Limited facilities, okay for a one nighter.

Amazing experience ”
Our stay at Eco island was our favourite experience in Sri Lanka. Priyashantha and his team made us feel like we were family, the service was on a par with a five star facility and the food was also the best we have had on our visit to Sri Lanka. The location is so close to the park that it only takes a few minutes to enter the gate. We would highly recommend a stay at Eco island and are looking forward to our next visit already.

Amazing place”
Having never gone on safari before I'm not quite sure what I expected but this place was amazing. Very rustic and remote but great service and food. The tents are very comfortable the adjoining bathroom is clean, well equipped and quirky. The stars at night were like you were in an outdoor planatarium, has to be seen to be believed.

Great experience, nice staff”
location, staff, nature
Our best stay in Sri Lanka. This place is different from what you can experience in the city, It's basically a tent camp where you get to sleep in a conformable tent at the border of Yala National Park. The staff was extremely nice and the food was incredibly good! They've organized a barbecue diner and it was really nice under the starry sky. We organized the safari with the hotel and it went well. They even came to pick us and drop us in the closest town when we arrived/departed. If you're in Yala for the National Park and Safari, I would definitely recommend you this hotel.

Worst stay of our trip to Sri Lanka”
We only stayed 1 night left the next morning, we had booked for 4 nights, could not face another night .Electricity only from 6pm till 10pm, we were the only ones there, tent was pushed into a bush, no fan, absolutely hated it. Nothing there, it seems to me they have just put 3 tents in a field no camp fire, had dinner and went to bed, as we had no electric after 10pm, did the safari the next morning and left, the taxi he ordered for us charged us 10,000 rupees which was 3,000 to 4,000 over the normal rate for that journey to Tangalle from Yala only cost us 17,000 from Colombo to Yala. Total rip off all round. Will request a refund.

couldn't sleep”
as represented.
Due to the location of the tents, there was no airflow. Without AC or fans, this made sleeping very difficult. The staff was good. The location was poor.

Lack of transparency re pricing”
Location, dining under stars and tent
Up until the bill and trying to leave we had a great stay in a idyllic setting. Sadly due to poor English and no information regarding prices of food and drink we were shocked at the bill for two dinners and some beer and wine. There was a distinct impression staff have been told to try and flog as many extras as possible and as you are a captive audience you are easy prey. Most annoying of all was agreeing on a time to leave to catch a bus they kept us waiting so long for the bill then put us in a tuttuk that promptly run out of petrol we missed it. The overpriced food and drink left us feeling ripped off and spoilt our stay considerably which is a shame as up until then it had been truly magical
