The bungalow is terrible. No light, very basic and next to a disco. So no sleeping till 3.30 AM ”
With 2 children, this is not a good place. But also without, if you like to sleep at night. Behind the reggae bar is a shed with a disco. Horrible techno, no isolation. As the windows have no glass, you have to keep the blinds close. So it's dark. Electricity failed several times. Bathroom very basic, no nice outside place. One positive point: AC is working (but is too noisy)
Good hotel ”
The hotel has just been renovated. The rooms are spacious, with air conditioning. This is the best value for money we found in Arugam Bay. The staff is friendly and always available. The hotel offers cheap safari and surf days . You can eat cheap and yummy local food.
it was a very bad experience”
, we got what they call banglow, its not a banglow its jus a room with small room which is separated to thee partitions with three beds and horrible smelling toilet, the power was going out around 20 times because of a short and I had to keep the main switch turning on till 9 pm, when we asked for a another room they sid rooms are full and they cant find a person to repair the issue, how ever we had to argue with them and they gave us two separate roons one with no attach bathroom, very dissapointed plse dont go there its not the place what u see on the picture...
Community beats Comfort”
Nicest Staff I met during my travels. Tuktuk driver, good advise and nice company during your stay. Simple rooms and beds but good aircon and wifi worked well. Excellent location in the heart of Arugam bay but nice and quite at night compared to the party backpacker locations at the beachfront. 1 minute walk to the beach and surfspot.
It is the dirtiest place I 've ever been. They did not clean the room in a long time. The bathroom was disgusting, the water flush didn't work and the shower ran dirty water. The staff said they would fix it but did nothing. For the same money there are much better places in Arugam Bay.
Good value for money, wifi didn't work though. But good location and from was clean
Had a lovely stay here very close to the beach and right in the centre of the town. Room was basic bunk beds and shared toilet. Unfortunately ours didn't work so ended up having to share with about 8 people but was okay.
Low budget with perfect location”
Yeah, this hostel is exactly what i expected to be for the price. Has a fantastic location, but.... Dirty bathroom and a stinky rooms, the smell disappeared after two nights. Girls were a bit disappointed, so we moved to another hotel.
This ain't paradise !”
This place wasnt the paradise for us. We used to travel and its the first time we saw a dirty place like this. There were sands on the bed, the shared bathroom was disgusting(the water couldn't evacuate, dirty toiletS). I told the manager about the shower problem, he told me to go to the other one but it was worst... Before leaving i told Him What i think About it but he doesNt really care. The only advantages : near the beach and free wifi to book an other place.
Good location! Bathroom could have been cleaner. There was problems with water, but The staff made everything they could to fix that, even took us to take a shower elsewhere!
More bad than good.”
The location is good, the cost is fine, under 3000 a night. We had an AC room, but it only blew hot air. The water from the tap and shower smells bad, like mud, or worse. The room was quite dirty. I had to scrape a layer of dust off the top of the mosquito net in order to get a little air flow from the fan. We stayed 1 night and then left.
Close to the beach and right on the main road with shops and restaurants
Great adventure and great stay!”
We really had a good time here! The food was great and the staff helped us in every way possible! I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Arugambay that likes a quieter and Prague stay. Great place to relax and spend your time! Greets from Canada!
Really good people run this place and they cook amazing food. Washed our clothes, cleaned our room twice and took care of any request. Sad to leave this place but I'm glad I made so many friends. Would most definitely recommend this place to anyone staying or surfing in Arugambay
No wonder they resort to insider deals- don't be tempted”
We booked a family bungalow as an 'deal'. When we arrived there was a carpentry workshop outside and it was right beside the main road. The bungalow is crammed with furniture with no room to swing a cat- a huge 4 poster bed fills a tiny bedroom so that its a squeeze to get into the bathroom. We opted to move to a family room in the main building- refused to refund any money. Staff helpful when aircon stopped working but sticking a carney into the socket is maybe not the safest way to find out what the problem is. The rooftop restaurant is no longer there. The music is on a loop of 7 songs , one of which is hotel california by panpipes. As we had paid we stayed for 2 days then left to a much nicer family bungalow up the road- it was cheaper too.
It was great deal. All staff were very nice and friendly. Location is bit far from the main point of surf. about 5-10min on foot.
Great room for the money”
Has air condition, warm water, and suitable beds at a cheap price. Plus the staff is amazing. Definitely recommended
Good value for money”
I booked triple room with air conditioning for two days. But on the first day itself we noticed the air conditioner was not working properly. I informed the management and they were eager to give another room.But we decided to stay in the same room because the alternative rooms which were offered did not have enough space. Though we had a good sleep in our first day for some reason , the second day was kind of a nightmare. It was very hot and sweaty and we could not have a good sleep. I suggest everyone should check the room before taking one. Regardless of this problem the staff was very friendly and gave a good service. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who needs a decent place at a reasonable price.
