    Super Deluxe Room with Panoramic Sea View and Balcony

    Acceptable”
    The only thing speaking for this hotel are the views from the balcony. Otherwise, the building has seen better days. We stayed in the super deluxe room hoping it would be ok but everything was old and falling apart. The hotel staff was particularly unpleasant and did not want to believe us when we told them the WiFi was not working (the solved the problem the next day) or that the remote for the air conditioning needed new batteries. They also just laughed when we told the we couldn't sleep because the bar next door was playing techno music until 3am (this seems to happen every Wednesday). Also, be aware that if you want to pay with credit card, they'll insist on charging an extra 3%) and require that you pay upfront when you arrive. In sum, despite the view and the location, we regretted pur choice. Pity!

    I was ripped off buy Upul”
    beach view, centrally located, close to ocean
    When I booked , I booked a standard room. When I arrived, I wanted to upgrade my room. I went downstairs and spoke and he said it would cost me an extra . I returned five minutes later with my wallet and he was asking me instead. I asked him why the price was higher than what he'd told me five minutes earlier and he suddenly "lost" his ability to speak with me. He became quite and muttered something about conversion rates. When I pressed him, he whipped out a calculator and punched in some random numbers to back up what he was talking about. After a few minutes of arguing, he admitted that he'd made a mistake and told me the price . I tried to argue with him about this, but there was nothing I could to. In the end, it's only, but it's the principle of ripping people off that left a sour taste in my mouth. I later asked another hotel operator why was the only remaining structure encroaching on the beach and was told that all other tall beach structures were demolished, but Upul's remains

    Value for Money”
    Beach, View, Friendly Staff
    We got what we paid for. We booked a double without AC and a double with AC but they gave us two doubles without AC. When I pointed this out they said AC was more expensive. I then told them that we did, in fact, pay more for AC but that we would be ok with a non-AC room if it was a beach facing one. So we got the one on the top most floor and it was great. Except that the height of the building also meant that the plumping lacked pressure and taking a shower was a bit dicey. We had to rush to finish before the water ran out!

    Great view & location but overpriced”
    Right by the sea
    Service was average – they or Agoda had missed out our booking, and didn’t explain the problem clearly. They also didn’t highlight problems with water pressure for Room 7's shower, only told us of the A/C which they later fixed (but broke down in middle of night) but didn’t bother to ask about it the next morning. Rooms were in need of upgrade (esp Room 7) – Room 7's door, door knob & lock in quite a poor and fragile state. It had an unpainted wall and the bed was on a bare concrete slab (design maybe?). No water from shower head due to inadequate pressure (from the shower tap was only a trickle). Room 1's water pressure was better in that at least water comes out. Its mosquito net had big holes. View was great, right by the sea, with the waves bringing you into dreamland and greeting you in the morning. Breakfast was poor (only bread & jam), but dinner was great. In conclusion, stay only if you really want to stay right by the sea.

    Small friendly but over-priced hotel”
    Good location
    Acceptable hotel but a little run-down, friendly staff, good location, and short walk to the beach and shopping. The dinning room was open to the ocean with no railing, dangerous for kids but it had character. It was over-priced considering it's condition and breakfast was not included. Across the street is a gorgeous little bakery set in a beautiful court hard with delicious homemade food/drinks.

    Going downhill?”
    Waves lapping at doorstep
    Paid about for very simple room, with ultra thin mattress, leaking taps, and hotel staff needed to use towels to stop water coming in main door! Cockroach & a few small centipedes included. Staff seemed friendly, but service generally poor (e.g., informed me they were getting new mattress but didn't). Note: Currently construction of new motel next door. Warning: Peak time (new years) is extremely difficult to find rooms if not booked.

    Great hotel, with the most amazing view ever!!!”
    the view, yummy homely food, location.
    We were at upul's guest house on the 19th of November. So we were originally supposed to spend 1 night at upul's , but the room facing the sea was simply breath taking, so we extended our stay for another day (we were on a short vacation of just 7 days). The staff there(only 4 people)were really help full and nice. They give you proper info on what to do and what to see how much it would cost you and so on. The food there is simple but delicious. Don't expect a luxury hotel, but its definitely clean and tidy. I would recommend this place to my friends for sure.

    nice staff and nice view from the door of the room.
    i found similar hotels for same price with exit to beach. to go to the beach from this one you have to walk 50 metres on the pavement or jump to the see from the restaurant. no hot water in my non ac room. breakfast was the simplest in all the trip. i chose this one because i liked the picture of the restaurant in the beach, but you can't feel the sand with your feet. i stayed one night and moved. it was not bad but there are many options.

    basic guesthouse with perfect view”
    view from balcony, friendly and helpful manager, good location for tourists
    This guesthouse is on the beach in Unawatuna which is about 10-15 minutes from Galle. The view is amazing, and the beach is literally at the doorstep. The guesthouse is in an area with other guesthouses/hotels, restaurants, and shops, all catering to tourists. The manager was very helpful and accommodating. The room had a large bed with mosquito net, and the shower had hot water. The room itself was basic and a little worn, but overall, for a guesthouse, it was fine. I would have liked the room to have been cleaned each day and a garbage can, but other than that, it was a satisfactory stay.

    personnel sympathique, plage juste à côté, bonne restauration
    Cet hôtel est agréable car la plage d'Unuwatuna se trouve juste en bas de l'établissement. Le personnel est sympathique et souriant. La chambre cependant était petite avec une douche sans eau chaude, nous avons pas eu la chance d'avoir la chambre avec terrasse avec vue sur la plage. Le confort est minimaliste et le ventilateur ne vient pas à bout de la chaleur intense qui règne dans la chambre. L'hôtel est proche de la ville de Galle que nous vous recommandons de visiter. Pour quelques jours et pour le prix cet hôtel reste cependant convenable.
