            relaxing stay”

            spacious and clean rooms

            my wife and i wanted a 5 day stay in or around Unawatuna as have enjoyed the area many times before in various hotels but a premium cost, so this year we decided to lower our budget as to enable us to travel across Sri Lanka, and we were pleasantly surprised with the Comoran, it had a spacious room which was very well kept by the room service boys, all the staff were very helpful, to cut it short we had no complaints at all, even the so called maizey steps were not a problem, and would have to disagree with previous reports of very noisy with the traffic as we could barely hear any outside noise,the location of the hotel is very close to the main beach and resturants, the room we had was #211. To sum it all up we would happily stay at the Cormoron again in the future.

            Hotel with two names”

            Helpful staff, nice room, very near the beach

            This hotel goes under two names, which is a bit odd. It comes up on Agoda as 'the Lavendish' but the sign outside actually says 'Comoran Beach'. We were told it was in process of changing name but it made it hard for our taxi to find - the driver had to phone for directions. It is directly across the road from a quiet stretch of beach and about 10 minutes walk along the beach into the centre of Unawatuna. The hotel is a labyrinth - several buildings joined together. it has a pleasant and clean swimming pool and a restaurant with a view over the bay, through breakfast service was inexplicably slow. We had a good room in one of the external blocks, clean, good sized bathroom, aircon and fan and the managers kindly allowed us to keep it on until the evening on the day of departure. However there were repeated power cuts (to our block, not the whole town) though these were promptly and politely attended to.

            Service Was Surprisingly Excellent, Much Better Than Mentioned in Those Negative Reviews

            well, i was lil apprehensive about booking in this hotel after reading average reviews on agoda and other website. when, i reached there, i was offered a complimentary drink with a water bottle..the room i got was pool facing and it looked pretty from room,,room was dot clean and overall at that price it was a great room...specially when breakfast was also free with the room....i liked the hotel and shall recommend it to others considering that other side hotels were charging double than this hotel..just 2 mins walk from the beach add icing on the cake...they even let me stay 2 hours extra than check-out time....

            Friendly staff, good service and a nice pool.

            OK, but for me walking with a stick there were to many stairs to the best rooms on the top floor. Nice wiev. You have to cross the main road to get to a small beach. I moved after two night to Unawatuna beach as I wanted more puls and a more restaurants. My room were not wey clean when I arrived as my feet got all black underneeth. Also to veranda facing the sea were very Dirty. I told the manager the next morning and they quickly cleaned the room. Nice breakfast and ok meny. The pool were clean and big enough for watertraining and swimming. Good value for Money.

            View out back of the forest, price, breakfast

            beach hotel cormaran wasn't bad. our room was clean and bright with a comfortable bed, i think we were fortunate because some rooms at the front would face the busy main road. there was a nice pool and generally chilled out vibe at the place. we were a little further from unawatuna shops and bars than we'd hoped but the beach was just across that main road so on the whole not bad. there were a few niggles like the ac being stuck on once and then off twice and also no towels in the room twice etc. but usually a quick call to reception would fix that. the included breakfast wasn't bad and set us up for day. cheers!

            Nice clean friendly hotel”

            pool

            this place is probably a better option for families as it is a great pool at the back where the families tended to hangout. the staff are friendly and rooms are clean and spacious. it is better to get a room poolside as it is on the main road (a few mins walking to the beach) which can be loud.

            Pool

            The poolside rooms are best as beachside is close to the road. I stayed only briefly but they were very friendly & accommodating. Is a short 2 min stroll to the beach.

            Nice hotel ”

            Nice pool, good size rooms

            he name of the hotel is slightly misleading as it is on the otherside of a main road from the beach. The hotel does not have a beach front. The room was a good size with air conditioning and a large shower room. There were no coat hangers in the wardrode. The staff were pleasant and were helpful. There is a nice bar/restaurant with good views across the bay. The restaurant was very limited. Breakfasts were good with a cooked meal available if required.

            Totally Misrepresented”

            Super Helpful Staff

            alright let's get the cons out of the way: it's on galle road (i'd suggest being on devala rd in unawatuna) and about 10-15 mins walk from the restaurants/shops of una. the standard room was way below standard and we immediately complained and were upgraded. however even the "new" room had issues. the ac leaked water all night long. no stations came through on the mini tv. at one point i was locked into the room as my friend had taken the key and locked the door from the outside and there was no way to get out of the room as you need the key on the inside of the room as well. the breakfast took ages and tasted poorly, so we most often opted out of breakfast and went to town for an early lunch. no bottled water was provided with the room and we had to purchase water to even brush our teeth with. the wifi was down for the entire time we were at the hotel though it showed a signal. now after having complained to management about the hotel conditions, they regularly apologized and suggested we contact agoda. they offered $15 discount per room when we had to extend our stay by 1 night due to one of our travel companions going into the hospital. the managers accompanied our travel companion to the hospital and were incredibly helpful with her treatment. we were given a fruit plate and a bottle of wine per room as a concession gift for being unable to assist us with our agoda reservation. we regularly had to request for our rooms to be cleaned; otherwise we were not given new towels, trash wasn't taken out and toliet paper wasn't refreshed.

            Close to beach, Good Breakfast, Friendly Staff

            Pros: Comfortable stay for a honeymoon couple. Staff was kind enough to upgrade our room to the only available suite due to some issues with the room that was provided. Nice Breakfast Spread. Easily accessible to the beach. Hotel was quite spacious. Cons: The downside of the upgrade was that we had to pay the extra fee. Pool was not maintained well. (Too crowded & small) Lunch & Dinner was not good. Rooms were not very clean. No lifts available.

            walking distance to downtown unawatuna

            We stayed in this hotel in off season so it was fairly quiet. The rooms were small. Breakfast was tasty and included every morning. Several nights the kitchen was closed since it was quiet but there are many delicious restaurants nearby. They have a very nice swimming pool.

            The hotel is new and still being finished in parts, so was a little noisy at times. We were there at a very quiet time so there weren't any other guests, but we found the staff helpful at all times. The room was spacious.

            relatively cheap

            The looked nice but after close inspection i found a cockroach under the pillow and a few coackroaches' eggs under the bed. Quite disgusting! I think the room had not been used for a long time. The A/C was not working properly so it was boiling hot. The staff tried to sort it out but with little success. But overall the staff did try their best. I bought a botle of water from the restaurant and I'm pretty sure they doubled the price! lol

            staffmembers made moves on us (no policy against staff hitting on guests) after a shower i found several members from the staff at the balconny (shared between several rooms) staring in through our window. meaningless knocking on door when we were sleeping, like 20min knocking then 5 members from the hotellstaff came in with a telephone they absolutely needed to try in our room. in 2 days we had four different knockings like that, early mornings and when we were in showering after a day on the beach. to far away from the beach. expensive, much cheaper and better hotels can be found. no roomcleaning. no toiletpaper och garbagebag on arrival. summary: ok hotel but the staff made us feel harassed.
