        Has seen better days, though not much much better”

        Good things first, the location is very nice, you have a great view of the sea and can indeed watch the turtles right from your balcony. It's not super expensive and staff was friendly. But then...it's just not a pretty building. The roof terrace looks downright desolate with withered plants and cracked glass panes in the floor that seem ready to let you plunge two floors down should you step on them. The lobby doubles as a parking area for motorbikes and tuktuks - literally, a meter a way from the sofa. Rooms are ok looking, stuff is a bit worn but generally works and the mattresses are not bad, it's just that boring look of room #3827 in any city hotel anywhere, and either they don't clean the salt off the floors or do so with far too much detergent, so the floors all have this strange greasy feel to them. It's not like we hated it but there's not much to love either, and for $70 a night there should be.

        Everything perfect”

        Hotel is highly recommended. The rooms and toilet are nice, like on the photos. The view is stunning and breathtaking. Ask for a room on 5th floor! Rooms are rather quite, no noise from the road (my main request was to find a quite hotel without noise). All.rooms have seaview. Breakfast is standard...nice choice of fruits everyday. On the left side (in front of Wijaya hotel) you will find natural pool. It is not deep and you may see small colourful fish there. On the right side near the big rock there is a place where turtles sometimes come. I.ve seen it one day. But the place is not very safe to swill all the time -rip current. 5 min tuk tuk to unawatuna. We also went to jundle beach and saw monkeys. You can swim there. And in Talpe natural swimming area

        Stinks of Sewage”

        We checked in for a 2 nights on 20th Dec. and left first thing in the morning the next day before breakfast disgusted with the place. Upon arrival there was a certain foul odor wafting in the air ... The A/c in our room (Room 32) was only working 50/50 and was full of mold spores. Of course, the Wifi also didn't work ... ! The smell of sewage in the bathroom was overpowering... coming from the drain of the shower stall cubicle. My girlfriend and I were lounging on the sun beds watching the sunset, when a SEWAGE SMELL overpowered us again. I felt something cool on my foot, looked down, and noticed a foul-smelling water bubbling up from under my sunbed, through the sand. Upon questioning the duty manager, he confirmed that the hotel had indeed buried sewage tanks/waste tanks of some sort under the beach in front of the hotel and that they were currently overflowing due to the hotel being at full capacity!! Gross! DO NOT STAY HERE!!

        We stayed at Sayura Beach Hotel from 19th to 21st March 2018. The place was very good, the view from the room was fantastic. You basically wake up with sound and view of the sea. Buffet breakfast was simple but delicious. Location was good and 15 minutes to Galle. Staff was friendly and very helpful. They should improve on their driver's accommodation. Other than that all are good.

        Wonderful hotel, Amazing beach and great restaurant.”

        Easily reached from Galle. We spent 2 nights but next time we'll stay for 4, as we had such a relaxing time. We fell in love with the beach, just metres from stepping out of the hotel building. The restaurant is located on the 2nd floor with great views of the ocean. Chef's kitchen is adjacent (glass partitioned) which added to the experience. We feel that we had the best Rice and Curry in Sri Lanka and ensured that chef knew it. Our 4th floor room was great. Spacious, clean and well equipped. Chris Hall February 2018

        Loved our room on the 5th floor overlooking the beach where we could watch the turtles swimming in the sea. Our room was very clean and the staff were always friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner at the restaurant were yummy. Only a short tuk tuk ride away from all the bars/restaurants on the beach. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

        Exceeded expectations ”

        After much searching thru agoda n reading reviews going to Sayura we found it value for the money we paid. As it was off season we got a good rate but also there were cons. The sea was too rough the days we were so no swimming in the sea , but my little one enjoyed the pool and the beach sand. Its not 4 or 5 star but a small hotel which caters the basic.Rooms big and spacious, bed comfy and away from the street noise. We saw the turtles from our balcony. About the hotel resturent i was hesitent to go and eat there as most of the reviews mentioned that there were no guests having meals and all but as we had a little one with us we opted to try the food out and i can say that what we had was surprisingly good. Value for.money too. Pool was small but enough for our little one to splash around but careful of the surrounding tile floor as the pool water splashes on them and they could be slippery and as a small hotel less crowd, the way we like. Service is a bit slow. Overall would visit

        Modern hotel on the beach”

        Sayura Beach hotel is right on the beach with a outdoor/indoor pool in one. The rooms are big and comfortable with modern furnishings. The staff is very helpful and hardworking except for one waitress during breakfast. The beach in front is not kid/swim friendly due to large rocks and coral but just a few steps away has a nice area to swim. The view is gorgeous from the rooms with incredible sunsets. The AC, TV and wifi are good. The wifi got iffy once in a while but when it works, it's super fast. The AC is big and powerful, the only bad thing is that every time you open the balcony door it would shut off due to the sensor. There's plenty of other hotels and restaurants on the path so there's many choices for meals. We ate at the hotel 2 nights out of 3 and the food is pretty good with fast service. A bit pricey but not outrageous compared to the other restaurants in the area but convenient since we just had to go downstairs. The breakfast was average. We ate at 8:30 and 9am so not too late but the food would be cold and low. But upon request they made new eggs etc. The fruit sat out a bit too long for my liking with flies but other dishes were covered. My only complaint was that my room was directly in front of the stairs so it was loud during breakfast with the clanging dishes since all the bathrooms have OPENED windows. I also requested that both our rooms be next to each other and quiet rooms 2 months prior to arrival which was not provided but the management gave us an upgrade the first night and a 10% discount for the inconvenience. Overall it was good.

        Lovely brand new hotel right on beachfront”

        We were so excited to find this hotel after traveling for 10 days around Sri Lanka. Brand new hotel right on beachfront. Beachfront location is superb in small town of Unawatuna. Beautiful comfortable rooms and beds. Lovely balcony looking over the ocean. Cheap compared to other hotels of this standard in Sri Lanka. The staff are friendly. It's new so everything is very 'shiny' however there are a few kinks to iron out. Restaurant service is slow and complicated where it should be fast and easy. Food was just OK. Other things: In order for the air con to work, the balcony doors needed to be shut in a special way (which we couldn't work out) so we slept the night in a stuffy sweaty room at 2.30am we were able to go downstairs and find the night manager to close the doors for us and get the air turned on however immediately upon opening the doors in the morning we lost air con. And we were not able to close the doors properly to turn back on. Therefore the room remained a sweat box. They need to tell guests that the hot water needs to be turned on 5 minutes before showering as we couldn't figure out how to turn it on. Had to get dressed and go downstairs and ask for help. Note I say, go downstairs, as the telephone in the room does not dial reception.

        Das Personal ist freundlich, sehr hilfsbereit und ein späterer Check out war auch möglich. Das Abendessen war gut, aber zu teuer mit knapp 50€. Wir leben in Sri Lanka und können es daher beurteilen. Das Frühstück war um halb 9 schon ziemlich ausgesucht. Es gab keinerlei Currys und überhaupt...für ein Buffet nicht überzeugend leider. Die Lage am Strand ist ziemlich gut, man muss nur 20m gehen, dann ist man in der Lagune bei den Schildkröten.
