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.

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.

A pigsty”

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.

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.

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.

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.

Good value for money”

Value for money, friendly staff, ample parking facility

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.
