Great Accomodation, clean, well located, staff is hit and miss”
Would recommend and return: location (just 5 min away from the beach), spacious rooms (bathrooms are not ventilated/ book room w AC!), dont eat in (food is just soso), staff can be super friendly (not the men with the glasses, around 28 years old!), but the rest are great and a asset.

Beautiful and well-run guest house very close to beach, fab food and hospitality!! ”
This was one of our favourite stays in the 7 places we visited in Sri Lanka - the guesthouse is less than a 5 min walk to beach and is set in beautifully maintained gardens with a pool (which sadly didn't seem to get much of the sun when we were there in February). The staff were lovely, and served up some of the best breakfast we had - plenty of fresh fruit, eggs, toast and hot drinks. We ate there in the evening once too and had delicious prawns and noodles. We stayed for 4 nights in the aircon rooms, and our linen was changed whilst there. I'd definitely go for the aircon and fan rooms! They overlook the pool and gardens and had a lovely private outdoor seating area. You have to have a wander to 'silent beach' which is about 10-15 min walk away - the staff will help you, but we were disappointed with the lunch we had there - maybe eat at the Goyambokka guesthouse instead!

Highlight of Sri Lanka! ”
Wow! Our favourite spot on the south coast by far! Lal and his team absolutely spolied us. We were lucky, stayed for 3 days before the high season started. It was nice and quiet. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms and had everything we needed. The pool and the grounds were very well maintained. Breakfast was yummy, very good strong coffee. A two minute walk to goyambokka beach and 10 minutes to (stunning) silent beach. I recommend going to silent beach and eating at a very small restaurant there, run by a guy called Kevin. We had two lovely meals there - a highlight of our two weeks in Sri Lanka.

Lovely little hotel on great beach”
Really lovely hotel with beautiful pool in lush surroundings, only 2 minute walk to the beach where you find some beach shack restaurants. Breakfast at the hotel was plenty and delicious, including tea or coffee (with real milk!), fresh juice, thick cut toast, eggs, and jam. We stayed in the older style room which was perfectly fine, especially the bed was very large and comfortable with good pillows. We missed a mini fridge and tea/coffee making facilities but no big deal. Perhaps the only drawback if you stay in the older rooms would be the bathroom which wasn't great (shower is open so everything gets wet), and it could have been a bit cleaner. The staff were friendly and cooked us a nice meal on our second night as we didn't feel like doing the small hike into town. All in all, we can recommend this place in low season as it was very good value for money.

Bed bugs - beware!”
When we arrived the room we had booked (in the older bit), had a really old, rusty and weak ceiling fan which wasn't doing anything to help the sweltering heat. Because of this we decided to pay a bit extra to upgrade to one of the newer rooms with air con. This was lovely at first - until we went to sleep and woke up covered in welts/bites. We knew it couldn't have been mosquitos (there was a net and we were covered in deet!) We checked underneath the bedsheets and discovered a load of signs of nesting (faeces, small blood stains and loads of shell like objects crammed into the corners of the mattress) . We slept another night there and were both itching all night and woke up with even more bites. We alerted the staff on the morning we left, and asked if we could get a discount on the room, but the owner refused. We felt this was unfair as the bedbugs could've been avoided with a bit more customer care and maintenance from his staff. We wouldn't stay here again as result. We now have to face the possibility of having an infestation at home.

Fantastic”
Beautiful place, super close to a beautiful and quiet beach. The room was very comfortable and the garden around was beautiful and very well kept. The restaurant was great. There is no much around so it's perfect to spend a couple of days in total relax. The pool is a bit small but so relaxing as well. Perfect!

Close to the beach & friendly staff”
We stayed here during low season so probably didn't see the hotel at it's best, but the staff were always friendly and the hotel is very close to the beach. The cleanliness of the room and pool area was average, and the wifi was unreliable but there was a nice hot shower.

Lovely pool and near the beach. ”
Upon check in they tried to give me a double room when I'd booked and paid for a triple. They then showed me a triple without AC. However, showing them I'd paid for a triple with AC they told me Agoda had made a mistake. Anyhow they did make up for it by refunding the difference. The pool is delightful and it's walking distance to the beach.

Simply superb”
We stayed in the new villas. They are indeed luxury. Pool is gorgeous. Grounds are tropical and well kept. The amazing beach is about a 200m walk down a small path. There are a half dozen shacks and bars along the small beach. You can use their palapas for free if you eat lunch there. The most interesting thing that happen to me is that my ankle 'popped' while I was playing in the waves. Went to the hospital. No broken bone but a severe strain. I could not put my weight on it. The guesthouse staff were incredibly helpful. They helped me up and down the stairs - and served us our meals on our patio so I would not have do the stairs. Special thanks to the staff member, Lal, who took care of my needs. Cant recommend this place highly enough

We had a very pleasant stay at Gyombokka Guesthouse where we stayed for 6 nights. We enjoyed the beaches close by and the pool in the nice garden. It had a little basin for our children which was perfect. Our room in one of the new villas was nice and clean and had a very nice bathroom and a perfect terace with shadow. The staff was very friendly. The restaurant was good though we sometimes had to wait a while for our food. We can definitely recommend this beautiful and calm Guest house.
