Pleasant stay in a lovely area.
its fabulous beach location, friendly helpful staff, shopping in the immediate surrounds.
We really enjoyed our stay, the staff were friendly and accommodating at the front desk and breakfast restaurant, service in the beach/restaurant area could have been a bit more attentive. Would have been happy to stay for a few more days. Inadequate aircon and a fan that was obstructed by the mossi net made for a bit of an uncomfortable sleep, but the bed was comfortable. Could have been a bit cleaner. Overall though a pleasant stay and I would stay here again, and recommend to others if they checked out the aircon.

Incompetant staff, who messed up our booking
Clean room with tea/coffee, AC, Hot water, Safe, mini fridge, TV.
We arrived at the hotel at 5pm to be told that they didn't have rooms and tried to move us to their sister hotel, Thambapani retreat which is further down the street and inland. When asked why they didn't inform us earlier, we were told that they couldn't find our number on Agoda!!We insisted that we wanted a beach view room as was booked for and already paid. After much confusion, they gave us a superior deluxe but on the ground floor, although we had booked for one with a balcony. The other guest who was with us who booked a deluxe room, was asked to stay in the other hotel down the road and after much argument, the staff suggested making our superior deluxe a triple for one night only as there would be rooms the following day. Apart from that they had the audacity to charge the other guest US$30 for making our superior deluxe a triple....which we didn't have a choice but to do. We suggest Agoda looks into this matter, as we didn't get what we paid for. And looking at previous reviews this seemed to have happened before as well. At the end of it, it took 4 "managers" to sort the problem out. We never got an apology or offered any form of compensation. The owner of the hotel who was there, didn't even bother to get involved. Very disappointing experience.

A great beach hotel with helpful staff
friendly staff comfortable room good dining
I have eaten here in the past but never stayed.We were greeted warmly and always asked if everything was ok.The food in the restaurant was very well presented and excellent value. The room was clean and spacious with a tv bathroom and balcony.The beachside area was clean and you could get onto the sand in seconds from your room. I would definitely stay again.

Sri Lanka. Adventure
Superb location, great food and comfortable rooms although the cost was pensive for a 3 stars hotel.
It was a great stay, no issues, wifi was slow when everyone is signed in , food was good although portions are not huge. Fabulous location b the beach, great music and good service but no pool.

An OK Hotel
Location. Food. Hotel driver.
The food was excellent if a little overpriced. The hotel is a little shabby and in need of refurbishment, which should have been reflected in the price. The bed was beautifully made and decorated every day with fresh flowers, but the room itself was a little grubby and the shower just a trickle, which we did report. The Hotel organise trips, but at a cost, it is better to organise them yourself. The hotel was not happy with us paying the bill by card which meant we were at the mercy of the Hotel´s exchange rate. Having said all this, overall we enjoyed our stay in Unawatuna very much but would not return to this Hotel.

We had an excellent 3-nights stay. Location superb, so is the level of service. Clean rooms. Slow wifi, but spend your time on the beach instead.
