Best spot on the beach!
This was an amazing stay, right on the beach! The room was very nice and clean, with a big bathroom. Breakfast was really good too, and they made it to order and you eat right there on the beach. I woke up this morning and saw turtles in the ocean about 5 meters from the beach, and the view from this property is just amazing on all sides. A short walk (maybe 15 mins) to the lively part of the beach, but it's nice to stay on the quieter part so all you hear at night is the waves crashing on the shore. The owner is very helpful and will arrange transportation around town or to other areas of Sri Lanka, and the staff is very helpful and pleasant to deal with too.

Loved waking up to the sea view
Had a lovely stay in this place. It has its private beach and its 5min away from the main beacj where you find a lot of restaurants. You get to wake up and eat your breakfast with the sea view. The staff is very friendly and the food in the hotel is nice. Had an amazing time.

On the Beach - pretty well in the sea!
A very friendly small hotel located with the sea lapping at its front. Not a good beach for swimming immediately in front - you need to go 60m along the road to get a good swimming beach or a bit further to get a real broad swathe of sand. The hotel is, however, out of hearing of the noisy sections of Uwatuna beach - you are guaranteed a good night's sleep. The hotel is small, but the owner and his staff give impeccable service - nothing is too much trouble.

Friendly helpful management.
Sea view rooms directly above the water. Great view. Manager & staff really helpful. Short walk to main part of beach. Inclusive breakfast good.

Great hotel with great views and friendly staff
When we arrived the owner advised us that the room we booked was not available but we would stay in the apartment at the top of the building for the first night. He then offered us the apartment for the rest of our stay and after some negotiation on the additional cost we agreed to stay there. The apartment is very spacious and there is a four poster bed in the bedroom. The ensuite bathroom has a great view out to sea. The owner and the staff were very friendly. The free breakfast was excellent, choice of eggs (fried, scrambled or omelettes), toast and a plate of fresh fruit each plus a fresh juice drink plus coffee or tea. We sat on the sun loungers on the beach in front of the hotel. There are a lot of rocks and as the tide came in mid-afternoon it was quite difficult to go in the sea for a swim due to the force of the waves. There are some very good restaurants within 750m including Bedspace, Black and white on Unawatuna beach, and Sea and Sun about 2 minutes from our hotel. Beware of walking along the main road as it is darkly lit and the bus drivers are crazy overtaking the tuk-tuks!! Take a tuk-tuk to Fort Galle. Nice place to walk around with nice cafes, restaurants and shops. We liked the Old Dutch Hospital which has been modernised and has lots of nice eateries and shops. Would definitely go there again
