Mixed feelings”
Location, View, Breakfast
While I found the hotel easily (right on the main street by a bus stop!) there was a wedding going on when I arrived, and guests tried to scam me by telling me it wasn't the right hotel and offering to drive me, drunk, for Rp. 400, to the hotel. The owner came out, and ushered me in to see the wedding. While it was great to get to see a Sri Lankan wedding, it was massively uncomfortable to feel like I was crashing the party, and I stood around with my backpack on for probably ten minutes while the owner loudly explained to me what was going on, getting glares for wedding guests. Finally someone let me use the toilet and checked me in (I had just gotten off a bus from Colombo and really wanted to rest and pee and wash my face!) The owner upgraded me for free since it was low season, which was wonderful The owner was friendly and helpful- arranging the manager to take me on his motorbike to the beach, helping me with bus times, upgrading my room, but overall my experience was scary and negative.

Great place, but we felt sometimes uncomfortable”
Positive: beautiful beachcottages and rooms maked out of palmleeves, very good food
The location and rooms were simple but had that special adventure/beach/budget style and the food they served us was delicious. Though we felt very uncomfortable sometimes: we arrived there in the evening, it was dark and rainy, there were only men in the reception/restaurant area who did not speak english and did not expect our arriving. After we organised everything we got into our room, which was actually beautiful, but as it was dark, raining and the electriciy fell of all the time and we were barely the only guests it was a scary for the two girls of us. Especially when some guys of the staff came late in the evening to our rooms and wanted to sit around with us - but without speaking english and in the dark, maybe we overreacted, but we felt very very uncomfortable, especially as the were sleeping in the room next to us which was actually supposed to be for hotel guests and which was just seperated from our room through a wall of palmleeves. Well, maybe we overreacted as it was in the beginning of our trip. Additionally I am convinced there was a flew in my matrass which showed me the bites on my arm the next morning. Well all in all we got this place recommended from some male friends, they loved it, but though the place was bautiful and food very good, the staff and people hanging around there mase us feeld uncomfortable.

Disappointing”
Lovely location, my budget room had a beautiful outdoor seating area overlooking a lovely lagoon
I was very disappointed by my stay here. The staff were very rude. One member lied about the bus times to avoid having to make my breakfast at 7.30 (breakfast was over-priced, and I had already paid for it). I was under time pressure to get a bus to take me to the airport, and the staff rudely demanded payment for a drink they had forgotten to add to my bill two days previously (and left it until the very last minute to tell me about this). A very horrible end to my stay, and I left the hotel in tears, though thankfully I made my flight. A nice hotel, and the room is cheap compared to other places in the area, but the horrible rudeness of the staff definitely had a very negative impact on my stay. I would be slow to recommend this hotel.

cabane sur pilotis un peu au bout du monde. ”
accueil, bon restaurant et personnel sympa.
Dépaysement total par cette cabane sur pilotis, confort spartiate inclus. Restaurant de bonne qualité et pas cher. Personnel sympa. Dommage de ne pas pouvoir se baigner devant la cabane. Ville de Kalpitiya sale et sans grand intérêt. Vent fort permanent. Bel océan, rageur à souhait et paradis du kite surf.

abenteuer- hotel, im endeffekt aber ein reinfall”
das freiluftbadezimmer
bei unserer ankunft war man zunächst nicht auf uns vorbereitet, wusste nichts von unserer ankunft. da wir keinen ausdruck vorbereiten konnten, gab man uns zunächst eines der kleinen zimmer, welche wirklich winzig sind mit sehr kleinem (für zwei größere personen zu kleinem) bett und die gemeinschaftstoilette war auch "nicht der hit". nachdem wir aber abklären konnten, dass wir eine der hütten geordert hatten, durften wir dorthin umziehen. diese sind schon sehr cool, wenngleich ebenfalls sehr spartanisch. das freiluftbad ist super. das personal (ein angestellter) ist ja grundsätzlich sehr bemüht, macht aber nur wenig richtig: der unterschied zwischen kaffee und tee war für ihn nicht ersichtlich. der vorgeschlagene strandabschnitt war total abgelegen und ebenfalls ein reinfall. die angaben zu busverbindungen waren alle total falsch, sodass wir den direkten (schnell-)bus verpast haben. anstalten uns ein frühes frühstück zu ermöglichen machte man nicht (das personal kommt dann "immer so ab 9uhr"). das essen ist generell ganz ok, aber nichts wirklich besonderes. internet funktionierte durchweg nicht, stromausfälle mit wasserausfällen kamen regelmäßig. negativer höhepunkt war, dass die matratze, die mit schaumstoffresten auf 2m ergänzt wurde und auf stein liegt, an einigen stellen leicht angeschimmelt und ich darin offensichtlich wanzenähnliche tiere befinden wie zahlreiche bisse an den auflagestellen bezeugen. das hotel ist eigentlich ein abenteuer wert, aber preis- leistungstechnisch sind wir doch sehr enttäuscht gewesen, zumal kalpitiya auch nicht ganz so das geboten hatte, was wir uns erhofften. ps: dies ist die erste und einzige negative rezension in unserem 4-wöchigen sri lanka rucksackurlaub. mit lokalen gästehäusern waren wir sonst meist sehr zufrieden.

Ночевка в Кальпитии, только не здесь”
Не было воды, точнее была, но ржавая, очень ржавая. Горячая вообще не предусмотрена. Душ-это три торчащие из стены трубы без леек . Простыни грязные, балдахин(без него спать невозможно, съедят) весь в пыли, дышать под ним тяжело. Приходилось просить дополнительные простыни, чтобы укрыться, с утра было холодно. Полотенца рваные и тоже не первой свежести. Гигиены ни какой. Завтрак средний, но большой, тосты, масло, джем, чай, жареные яйца, ребёнку принесли йогурт. С утра хозяева более гостеприимные, чем с вечера.
