Thaproban Pavilion Resort & Spa, Unawatuna
Beautiful hotel, but we checked out early...
The hotel is beautiful, there are two good pools, the breakfast buffet is terrific, and the staff is friendly. I was traveling as a solo parent with two young kids and chose this hotel to take advantage of the children’s club and beach access. The children’s club was not what I had in mind: it’s an unattended indoor play room, so I wasn’t able to leave my kids there for any period of time. The beach access is disappointing: there is no swimmable area, just some lounge chairs set up by the rocky shore. Since it’s not a smoke-free hotel, there were plenty of smokers around the pool and I found this obnoxious. The dinner doesn’t start until 7:30pm which is too late for my young kids. During our stay I asked about the turtle hatcheries and the woman who helped me suggested I set up a tour and also see the stilt fishing. It would be Rs5k for the tour for the 3 of us. In actuality, I was only paying for the driver (entry fees are extra), and he took us to the hatchery and was gone when we had finished! I couldn’t figure out where he went so I tried to get an Uber but then he came back—he had needed gas (I think?). Then he took us to the stilt fishing which was an extra Rs6k! I paid the driver Rs5k and the whole ordeal took 90 mins—I should have just hired my own Uber. At checkout the hotel didn’t let me leave because I was supposed to pay *them* the Rs5k and they had to sort it out with the driver. Overall, leave the kids at home or get a hotel on the beach, and book your own rides

My wife and I stayed a couple of nights at the end of April. We had a great time. The hotel is absolutely perfect. The pictures do justice to the hotel.. they were exactly as we had seen on the website. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. A special mention goes out to Nipuna (Front desk Manager) - Anything we needed, be it information or help he was always ready with the answers. He even helped us out getting a booking in Hikkaduwa when the room was sold out on the website. I’d definitely recommend the place. It’s nice and quite at the end of the road. Just perfect for couples or families. Sit by the pool all day & enjoy some neat cocktails

An excellent hotel to relax, with tasty breakfast.
Beautiful hotel, very attentive staff. Decor outstanding downstairs. Room spacious and comfy with all amenities. Sea view relaxing. Loungers by pool comfy. Not able to swim in the sea as access rocky. 10 minute walk to a delightful beach, tasty restaurants with free loungers.
