Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here for 4 nights during our stay in Sri Lanka and found the staff to be incredibly helpful and welcoming. The hotel is in a great location beside the beach. The rooms have air conditioning and are a great size with a good ensuite bathroom. Breakfast was good and we were well looked after here with fruits, fruit juice, eggs, omelettes, toast with butter and jam and tea and coffee. I would stay here again for sure

Unawatuna Beach Bungalows made our stay in Unawatuna! Such hospitable staff who made us feel incredibly welcome. Really clean rooms - not high end luxury but that’s more than made up for in the level of service, convenience for the beach and delicious breakfasts. Would highly recommend!

The rooms are simple, clean and comfortable. The hotel is located right on the beach with many bars and restaurants in short walking distance.
The staff were very welcoming and made us feel at home.
If you a looking for an easy going, no fuss hotel I would recommend a stay here.

My husband and I stayed four nights and loved everything about beach bungalow. The four brothers are all delightful and the ladies cleaning rooms and in the kitchen always a smile and eager to please.
All the staff and management are all very attentive to all their guests. Friendly and helpful for any information you might need of the area, places to visit, transport making your stay very enjoyable.
Loved the breakfasts and the fresh bread toasted delicious.
Our room was very comfortable and spotless. Lots of hot water, air conditioning and ceiling fan worked very well.
Lots places to eat, the beach is two minutes away. Very safe and would recommend staying here .
We are certainly hoping to re visit next year. Big thank you for everything.

Went back for our 3rd visit and wouldn’t stay anywhere else! The road is a little tricky to find, but this quaint little Hotel is snuggled within a 30 second walk to the beach. Clean, great breakfast, and the owner and staff have always been accommodating and kind. You’ll feel like family!

Very clean and well equipped rooms of the hotel with breakfast served daily. On arrival we were welcomed by friendly owners. The hotel is located in convenient place close to the beach, restaurants, little shops and spas. Only 20 minutes away from Galle Fort.
We can only recommend it for your next destination.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. We had a lovely welcome. The room was nice. The bed was comfortable. It was clean. There was a lovely area to sit outside your room. The bathroom was nice and the water was hot. Wi-Fi wasn’t too good. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Location was good. Plenty of restaurants nearby and close to the beach

Very bad surprise at the end of the trip when we paid the room.

We gave the money to the owner (who was drunk), he counted in front of us and it was fine. He went to kitchen few minutes and he came back saying that we did not give enough.... he was telling a lie !!

And he started to be very agressive and we felt scared ... so we paid 30 dollars more ... but we were honest and he was a stealer ...... VERY BAD EXPERIENCE
Don t go to this place !!!

Responded 20 Apr 2011
Dear Sir, I am very sorry, this have never happen before. I apologize for what have been happen. I'm not a stealer. Off cause it is me who have done the wrong thing here. When you did the counting for the bill in the restaurant I was a little bit confused. At that time I also should been counting. Unfortunately I took the amount and counting when I came to my kitchen. What I find out when I count, was that it was Rupees 3000 less than the bill. Anyway it was my fold not to count there and then in the restaurant. Again I'm very sorry and feel very uncomfortable when our guest leave us in leaving us with this opinion. Hope you can come back at a later date and that we can do it good for you again! Sarath Owner

Booked this for family of four- assuming a bungalow on the beach. Sorry, once again blatant misrepresentation of the facts by the advert on booking.com. Only double rooms overlooking the spread of the pool from the Unawatuna Beach Resort. Not even a beach as rocks and totally unsuitable for our 10/13 year olds. Ended up cancelling and getting charged 110 USD for the privilege- the rooms were then booked by other people walking in off the street.
Once again let down by the blurb from a pre booked website and having to pay as well. No chance of a refund even though a complete misrepresentation of the accommodation. Owner was nice- so would I be for getting paid for lying and doing nothing.
We ended up paying out again to move to the proper Unawatuna Beach- real sand etc. Avoid this place if you want "beachside bungalows" as the accommodation certainly is not that- reminded me of my backpacker days.

We had heard that some of the hotels in this resort can be pricey and not too clean. This was reccommended to us. We found it clean and comfortable. Only 30 seconds from the beach but far enough away from the all night beach party that was going on at the other end of the beach!
Some of the staff didnt speak english and couldnt understand our breakfast order (even when we pointed to it on the menu!) - we had to wait for an english speaking member to come to help. Other than that, we were very happy. They even let us keep our room until later in the day so that we could enjoy our last day at the beach and shower before travelling home.
