We booked and paid a room from Agoda threr days earlier but when we arrived at the hotel it was fully booked. We had to wait an hour for the manager to arrive. When he arrived he told that he didn't confirm the reservation with Agoda and said he is not working with Agoda any more. We tried reason with...

The manager was outside selling fish so we picked our fish and went inside. The fish comes with chips salad and rice. Rice was stone cold and chips were old and cold too. As soon as they came out I told the clueless Waiter they were cold and can he get some fresh ones. He looked at me like I...

One night before check-out one of the managers came to us and wanted a deposit for one night. We were a little suspicious and demanded a receipt which he gave us. Next day at check-out they said we have to pay the full price as they simply said they didn't know what we were talking about and the receipt was...

Me and a friend stayed here in May 2015. Rooms are as expected for the price which was not the problem here. The problem was how rude the owner and his staff were. I also was unfortunate enough to take a look in the kitchen, it was the most disgusting state you could imagine it to be in. Raw meat...

Hate writing bad things about people or places, but we had a terrible experience with the owner, and wanted to warn others to prevent getting ripped off. I had booked and paid through bookings.com. Stayed there a few nights which was fine (even though i think there some other places with better value for money), then on the final night...

had to fight for towels. answer was they had run out of them, period. And it goes downhill from here. If you need to stay try to stay in the last cabanas towards the end of the row. Restaurant has poor service, Wifi is very very patchy.

Room was comfortable and clean (same about the bathroom) and we loved a huge terasse. Location was good, close to the beach and close to main road where u have a lot of bars and...

We stayed at Hang loose with a big group of people and I think for the price we paid, it was a little poor. The matresses are saggy and smelly and we had to ask for everything: Towels, Blankets, Toiletpaper. The guys seem a little annoyed when you ask things. The rooms are quite big though and the food is...

Spent 3 nights (couple + 2 teenagers) in a family room with A/C and balcony on the 1st floor, at the end of a 3-weeks tour of Sri Lanka. The room was nice and clean, with a pleasant balcony. The (huge) bathroom deserved some repairs and was of the “inundatable” type. It has proved impossible to obtain stain-free towels, but,...
