We had to cancel our booking due to the pool being worked on. Because th children weren't able to go into the ocean the pool was a must. Was off season in July but the whole property did not look like in the photos.

In Sri Lanka for a week, with two days' diving on the front end. Found Ypsylon through TripAdvisor and made arrangements in advance with a deposit up front via bank wire and the balance after our 2nd days' dive was complete. All in all a solid operation. While my wife and I are already certified and had our own gear,... More

The hotel must change the furniture and bathroom sink and toilet for a new one because its already old and smelly. The room was smelly and covered with dust, the only good thing about this hotel is that the beach is right in front of the hotel!

Services: I had the feeling that staff was a little bit overworked but I think they were doing what they can. Diving: Very good but bring your own equipment if you... More

The location of this hotel was really good, beach was very pretty indeed . In terms of rooms and services, the hotel is pretty average, they dont have phones, coffee/tea ,water nothing in room. so i found this place little over priced. Hones stays where i stayed in Sri Lanka at other locations were much better in terms of services.

I visited this guesthouse for two weeks in March 2015 with my friend and my 4 years old daughter. ROOMS: very simple but spacious enough and clean.
