Rather try another place in Arugam Bay”
We stayed for 2 nights and we were really disappointed by the staff, I have to say the worst service provided during our whole stay in Sri Lanka. When we came the guy took us to the room and in next half an hour three other people came to ask us if we are in the correct room we paid for (how we could know if we are in the right room?), the way they ask was also not very nice. The other thing was breakfast (included in price) as well the worst we had in Sri Lanka. We` ve got just little toast with vegetable and omelet, and cup of coffe and tea which were undrinkable due to too much sugar in it (it was already served sweetened) when we told the guy that it is too sweet, he just told us he didnt know, no effort to prepare us another one or apologize, moreover, the breakfast were ordered for 8 am, and we had wait almost until 8:30 to get something. The rooms had also big spidernets with a lot of died insects and were not very clean, the only advantage was th A/C.

6 days in River Corner”
Solid rooms with AC and fan
We have stayed six nights in River Corner. Some other reviews wrote that the hotel is far away from the center attention, which we cannot confirm: The main road of Arugam Bay is 2-3 minutes walk away and one is at the beach within 5 minutes, so this is perfectly fine Pros: - Solid rooms with AC and fan - WIFI - helpful but busy owner that can arrange things easily and has good connections to drivers and tours - water can be bought - decent but basic breakfast Cons: - staff a bit annoying when it comes to asking what our plans are (they try to arrange overprized tours and want to make some extra money) - a strange incident: WIthout making false accusations: my sunglasses that I had left near the breakfast table were gone all of a sudden and after searching for them for quite a while the young guy working there (who noticed that I had searched) told me that the dog had taken them and he found them on the streets 15 meters away. My tip: Just use the hotel as your stay and don't get involved in tours they try to organize for you.

Nice bungalowstyle hotel”
Recently refurbished main room with ac. Quiet location. Helpfull staff.
I've stayed here 12 nights and had a pleasant stay. I payed a little extra for the ac what was well worth the money considering the heat in the afternoon and at night. The hotel manager could arrange a tuktukdriver and taxi. The only downside was the presence of a muslim mosque in town where early in the morning a muezzin waked many up.

Rude owner, regret spending money on this.”
Secure room, room wifi, nothing else
The owner was extremely rude to me and to my friend. I left this hotel feeling humiliated and regretting sinking into this hotel, which is far more than it's worth: The hotel had no hot water or air conditioning, which could be found in other hotels in A-bay for a fraction of the price. Also, this hotel is quite far from the main street of Arugam. You will need a toktok to go anywhere. There is a school next on the opposite side of the dirt road, so a lot of children there and some cattle as well.

Great Hotel, Friendly Staff and atmosphere”
Comfortable rooms, Friendly Staff and Great Breakfast.
I stayed at at River Corner initially for 2 days however afterwards i decided to stay for another week. Haroon the hotel manager/owner was very helpful with everything from breakfast service, transportation right through to helping organise surfboard rentals. The main rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. River Corner also has a number of options, I eventually moved into a smaller room for the longer stay , it was good value for money for the budget traveller. Free Wifi works and it is fast. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall a good atmosphere and a great stay.

Pleasant and away from the Buzz”
Friendly staff, nice bread, peaceful
This is a pleasant, modern place to stay. It is away from the main strip where you can get rooms for equal or less, but the conditions here are good.

Freindly atmosphere and clean rooms”
Friendly staff, delicious homemade bread, cute kitten
We had come to RC for 4 nights and decided to stay for more 5, thanx to clean rooms, clean washroom and tasty breakfast with homemade bread. We are happy to meet the owner of the place Haroon (hi, there!), who took all chargers of arranging safari, tuktuk, car renting etc. Be prepared to be loved by small and tender kitten and please buy it some cat food in the nearest shop, it loves it sooo much ;)
