"Roccos has by far the best pool beach set up in Arugam Bay. The pictures are accurate. The breakfast was the best we had in Sri Lanka. Be sure to order the Sri Lankan breakfast the day before. Our favorite staff members were Haleem and Kovy! They were so kind and knowledgeable about the area's history. "

"Fan rooms are very hot. Large spacious room. We moved to one of the back rooms after the first night which was much cleaner as we were in one of the rooms in the front of the building. There is a mosque next door with a loud 4.30am wake up call. Very frustrating. Would have liked to have an option for breakfast. Only gave us toast and egg. Friendly owners. 20 seconds to the beach. Surrounded by restaurants and shops. "

"Only planned to stay here for one night but in the end stayed for 4 nights. The hotel is right on the Mainroad only a few meters away from the beach. You can reach everything in arugam bay within a few minutes of walking. The rooms are big and all have a separate bathroom (with hot water). The rooms are well equipped with ac and fan and a big bed. From the top level you can see the beach. Very calm and relaxing place. Laundry is also available."

"We arrived and the location pin wasn't on is the right spot. On top of that the place is called wanderlust inn and not sea wind. Really annoying start of our stay in arugam bay. The room is ok but if you pay 20% more somewhere else it will definitely up your vacation opposed to this one. "

"Even though surfers can literally bump into the water with their boards (Arne’s Place offers surf lessons too), this laidback place is suited for all kind of other people too. If going to bed and waking up with the sound of the waves is exactly your thing, this must be the place. The owner family, Halim and his brothers, are of a kind sort and love to share their big knowledge of the area. “Come as a Stranger, leave as a Friend” beautifully written on their wall isn’t just an empty slogan. Go and experience it yourselves."
