              Very good and small (this is our preference) hotel managed by a very friendly and hospitable local guy. Location is awesome especially for a high seasons as you stay aside of "people soup" but you have everything in a walking distance: - Beach - The road (to take a transport to go anywhere) - Wine shop :) Hotel has it's own private beach with a family of sea turtles living there! In the morning you can enjoy by a sort of breakfasts. Chandana (the owner) is always ready to help you with any kind of activities, local trips and so on. Definitely a place we'd like to return to. Thanks Chandana :)

              Chandana could not have done more to make our stay perfect. Everything was clean and well serviced, breakfasts were delicious. My friends were sick during our stay and Chandana assisted with getting them to private hospital in Galle, organising medicines from the pharmacy etc. The power plugs were the older circular type and when I mentioned I had the UK plugs he organised for it to be charged over for me. One of his staff even stopped my young child from running on to the road. We couldn't have been made more welcome and they couldn't have done any more to make our stay perfect. Definitely recommend staying at Hotel Veranda Di Serena

              Amazing little hotel, great location even better service”
              We had a wonderful time visiting La Veranda Di Serena. I was researching where to stay in Unuwatuna for about 2 weeks and couldn't decide SO HAPPY I went with this place! It's walking distance from the main beach and all the excitement of Unuwatuna. Even better, you have your own little beach right outside your door! The breakfast was lovely, and the service remarkable. We were so dissapointed we didn't book for longer! We did a day trip to Marissa with a scooter they booked for us, they had a tuk tuk ready for us the day we left, they even made us an authentic Sri Lankan breakfast! Definitely going back!

              The location is right on the beach, the view is awesome and the staff super friendly and helpful
              We stayed for four days and were in room one The view is amazing ( pics attached ) The room quality is good for the cost, nice ensuite and nice balcony with chairs to have a sundowner The beach is right in front of the building and it's a five minute walk to the main Unawatuna beach and the partying if that is what you like The food was great a fisherman caught an octopus in front of the building and when we suggested that we should buy it and have it for supper ... No sooner said than done ... And excellent it was two There is a hole in the wall bottle store and a small grocery store that sells ice 200m if you turn left Great place to stay and ten minutes to Galle Old Town We will be back 👍👍👍👍👍

              clean and afforable
              I think it is too close to the sea. Beach area is quite small esp when tide is coming,there is no actually place for putting beache chairs. Our night is super noisy, one hotet next door played super loud clubbing music till mid night. In the whole night, you can hear the sound that waves lapping against the rocks. I did not sleep good at all.

              The View from our room, the breakfast, watching the turtles swimming in the sea.
              On arrival at this hotel we were so pleased when we seen our view and we could finally relax for a few days after travelling around Sri Lanka for the previous two weeks non stop. Unfortunately the peace and quite did not last long. The beach bar next door started blasting out dance music at 5am and this continued until 6pm in the evening. I complained to the manager on several occasions and he kept saying he could do nothing about it. Again it was not until I informed the manager at about 5:30pm that I had contacted Agoda and asked them to cancel my booking so I could book somewhere else for the following 2 nights that the manager seemed take notice. 30 minutes later the music stopped. All the reviews stated how peaceful this hotel was in its proximity away from the bars at Unawatuna but it was completely the opposite. Unawatuna beach was really quite when we went up there to eat and we had wear earplugs for over 12 hours. Unfortunately it ruined our stay at this hotel and Agoda were not much help either.

              Staff, location, breakfast
              My husband and I stayed 6 nights at La Veranda. The owner and his family live on the grounds and provide excellent service, every question or concern we had was heard and they made sure our needs were met all the time. Breakfast was wonderful, with loving touches and smiling faces! We only ate dinner once at the hotel and it was good and reasonably priced. The room we stayed in was basic, one should choose the superior rooms, not standard, which would also have a sea view. The location was good, easily within walking distance or by tuctuc into Unawatuna, where you have a variety of shops and restaurants, or to beautiful surrounding beaches closeby.

              Spacious top floor apartment; great owner; on private beach
              We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Chandana, the owner, is very helpful and is an outstanding person that we will always remember. There are small problems that come with staying in a small hotel in a developing country such as brief power outages and the hot water not always available. However, the friendliness & helpfulness of the staff caused us to quickly forget these issues and get back to enjoying our vacation, which we certainly did. The beachfront location and the sound of breaking surf made this a very pleasant stay. If you want to avoid mass market tourism & get off the beaten path you will thoroughly enjoy this hotel.

              What a 'Gem' of a place we discovered through Agoda! From the minute we arrived at ' La Verandah Di Serena' to the minute we left we were treated special! The owner (Chandran) his family and staff could not do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble! The welcome fruit juice was pretty amazing! We stayed in the 'Penthouse Apartment' which had amazing facilities and an awesome view of the sea and Unawatuna! We went to sleep and awoke to the sound of waves crashing! Nothing was too much trouble for the owner, from booking us a Tuk-Tuk, organising our full jeep safari trip to even taking us to the bank in Galle! It was our Anniversary whilst we were there and the owners wife cooked us an authentic Sri Lankan curry, it was probably the best meal we had in Unawatuna! We felt totally and utterly spoilt and are planning our next trip there in 2015!
