Isolated and Unsafe ”
Not Safe and Very Isolated Location (Pohaddaramulla, outside Wadduwa)Do NOT stay, location is not safe. This is a mild description. Going to the beach is not an option. The first day I was approached and verbally abused by one man. Than another man came, I moved, but than two men came and would not leave me alone. The next day I went walking on the beach (long skirt, baggy top) and had to return to the guest house after several men were very aggressive, tried to touch me, one of them running after me. You HAVE to stay within guest house grounds all the time. No shop, no restaurant. The pool only gets the sun between 12-3pm, a 7 floor hotel being built next to the guest house is blocking the sun. A couple I met later said a local guide warned them the beach is dangerous for tourists, someone has been attacked. Several weeks earlier a few children and a tourist drowned because of the strong currents and waves. The room was clean but the bathroom is damp, with very unpleasant smell from the drains. There was no hot water. When you take a (cold) shower dirty water comes up from the drain. Toilet overflows, unpleasant smell all the time, no window. No mosquito net, many insects. WiFi does NOT work. After asking several times it was switched on for a few minutes only. The guesthouse owner gave us a price from a ‘car company ‘, airport transfer. It was overpriced but we agreed. At the end of our stay, just before we left, he said the 'car company' had increased the price. It was too late for us to find another option. Than the driver tried to increase the price further, otherwise he would take a longer route – his boss told him the highway was not included. I asked for 'car compny' card/name and he explained that Larns Villa owner borrowed a car from his friend. Do NOT stay at Larns Villa. Unsafe beach, no alternative for foo or anything else, and for arrangements

Quiet guesthouse with nice pool and gardens.”
Friendly owners, nice pool and good place to unwind for a few days
I stayed here by myself for four nights at the end of a four week trip to Thailand and Sri Lanka. A family run guest house run by a friendly couple. Lovely gardens and nice pool. Only a few rooms so the pool does not get crowded. Although near the beach there are no cafes, bars or restaurants near by. I used a local Tuk Tuk guy to take me to the 'strip' with restaurants around 6 km away next to Tangerine Beach Hotel. The beach near by is not really for relaxing as it is a ' working beach' for the local fishing villages. A nice place to relax and unwind but not the place if you are looking for the night life! I ate a couple of times at the hotel and the local food served was OK. Breakfast was good but there is no menu only what you are given - this is common in Sri Lanka. There is a new hotel being built next to the guest house but I didn't find it intruded on my relaxation. You will need to use a Tuk Tuk if you want to get around. It is too far and too hot to walk to the restaurants and bars which are mainly in Kalatura 6 km away.The room was not clean or serviced during my stay. This also seems common in Sri Lankan guest houses. I think you need to ask and they will do it for you. The WiFi seemed to get switched off when no guests were in the common areas such as the terrace and pool. The signal is weak in the rooms. For the price it was good value. The shower had hot water, the air con was quiet and the TV had a good range of channels.

Very nice, small family hotel 50m from beach”
Very friendly owners, close to the beach, with swimming pool and showers
Perfect! :) Just one night but it was wonderful. Very good food served in the restaurant downstairs. And close to the airport as well.

Friendly family run hotel”
Welcoming owners, smiles, pool
The couple owning this guest house were delightful. They were consistently friendly and attentive; we felt very comfortable here. A local power supply problem meant our air conditioning stopped for a few hours and they made a lot of effort to help rectify the problem. The pool is very clean and provided a fun activity to get away from the heat of the sun. Breakfast was lovely and delivered with a smile. They provided a good deal of advice for our onward travel and exploring the local area. Our first night we planned to return very late (1.30am) from a friend's wedding nearby. They graciously said this would be no problem and gave us their mobile number to call to let us in. Again, they even greeted us with a smile when opening the door :)

Nice b&b ”
Breakfast and close to beach
This is a nice b&b. owners are helpful and speak good English. Hotel manager was really good, rooms are clean and have a private balcony. Beach was close by although we didn't swim there as a big building site close by and didn't want to subject my girlfriend to that. Really nice pool though so didn't matter. One of the better places we stayed in Sri Lanka

Far away from home, but at home”
The very attentive owners, cleanliness and the marvellous evening meals
We doubled our stay there! We were so impressed from the quiet friendly nature of the owners, the general cleanliness of the whole surroundings, the clean, refreshing pool, imbedded in their beautifully maintained garden. Our wish to experiment the typical Sri Lanken cuisine was absolutely no Problem for them., in fact they thoroughly enjoyed cooking their various specialities for us. We highly recommend their little haven, not only to fellow travellers who seek the uniqueness of experiencing the "real" traditions of culinary and true Sri Lanken hospitality, but also to our Friends at home. You will not regret staying there!

great place to stay”
friendly staff, large room, close to the beach,
I stayed just for one night at Larns Villa, but in this one day, I felt welcome like a family member. The owner are awesome!!! The staff is great!!! Would definitly recommend this place to stay. Nice breeze from the beach and beach view. The balcony view is into the garden area with a small pool. The hotel is new and you have everything you need. Good value for the money!

Freundliche familiäre Unterkunft ”
Freundliches Personal; Essen; Lage
Das kleine familiär geführte Hotel liegt ca. 50 Meter vom Naturstrand. Das Besitzerpaar bzw. das Personal waren sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Jeder Wunsch wurde erfüllt. Der Besitzer besorgte uns sogar ein Motorrad vom Nachbarn damit wir Touren unternehmen konnten. Das Essen war sehr lecker und günstig. In unmittelbarer Nähe wird ein neues Hotel gebaut (Fertigstellung Sommer 2015). Ab und zu war es ein wenig lauter was uns aber nicht störte. Wir würden das Hotel jederzeit wieder buchen.

Sehr empfehlenswert!”
Sehr nettes Hotel in Strandnähe, sehr gutes Essen und angenehmes Personal.
Wir haben uns wie zuhause gefühlt. Die Anlage ist recht neu und wirkt sehr gepflegt, die Zimmer sauber und gut ausgestattet. Das Managerehepaar und die Belegschaft waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit, insgesamt herrscht eine warme und familiäre Atmosphere. Das Essen war sehr gut!
