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.

The location is perfect, at the end of the Unawatuna bay, calm and pitoresque, with the waves crushing against the slightly rocky shore just steps away. The sound of the waves works like a buffer against the street noise as one may think this could be an issue, do not worry about it. The room si clean, not very big, but one does not need much when one travels. It has a great bad, hot water, ac, very clean towels!😊

The food is excellent! We had the rice and curry which they recommended and it was perfect, you should deffinitely try it while there, as well as the fresh sea food.

The part i liked most was the service! The staff is very friendly and professional, always ready to help. I am sorry i do not remember names, but from the young lady at reception to the restaurant staff, the cleaning and security officer, everyone was nice and concerned about the well being of their guests. The owner, Cassy, is a very nice lady as well, always among her guests.

I loved my stay at the Sun n sea hotel. It was clean and maintained. The staff was friendly and efficient. The room had hot water shower, AC ,mosquito net, wiifii and tables and chairs outside your door on the balcony. Great sea view. One night I saw a big turtle on the beach. The food was excellent. A nice mix of Sri Lankan and european food. Their coffee is the best I had in all of sri lanka and I travelled around the whole country. Sri lanka is TEA country.... most of their coffee taste like dirty water but sun n sea made it correctly :) Their breakfast menu was excellent, they even had French toast. I highly recommend it and will book again if I go to Sri lanka again.

Perfect place to stay when visiting Sri Lanka. Short distanse to everything, If you really need to go somewhere else... you fall asleep with the sound of wawes, they have complementary sunbeds... and the food is great! The curries are magnificent. All staff are friendly and helpful, the manager even took extra care of us with inviting us to his home for lunch and arranged the most wonderful safari at Udewallala. The hotel have great, very clean rooms with comfortable beds. You feel safe and pampered. I really reccomend this place for everyone that want value for money and a great holiday. Thank you Sun N Sea, we’ll be back🌴🐘😍
Love, Christin & Ola

Great location, decent food. That's on the positive side.
Dirty and stained bedsheets, bugs, lizards, spiders and spider webs in the room, including in the bathroom. We stayed around 1 hour in the room, while I took the fastest shower of my life, constantly checking if the lizard who disappeared somewhere in the walls would decide to return.
Mould on the bathroom walls and the towels had a funky smell.
We left for another hotel and we paid 4000 lkr for that 1 hour we spent in the room.

Stayed here one night and was so happy with the place that we wanted to book again but they were booked but that did not stop us from going there for our meals. This place has a beautiful view, on the beach in short everything. The food is excellent from local to western. Not forgetting the staff n the owners who are super friendly, very helpful and people who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I recommend this place to anyone looking to have an super holiday down south.

This Hotel is perfectly located on the calm side of the bay. I stayed 3 nights and loved it to jump into the sea in the morning without taking anything with me, just 20 steps from the hotel to the sea. Until midday, there is a shadowed place in the Sand & you can always find a deckchair in the shadow of the gardenarea. Breakfast was included & very delicious with several options like pancake or eggs in different styles. Also for lunch or dinner I can highly recommend the restaurant!

You feel like you are in the sea! I was so relaxed hearing the waves just outside my door. the location is unbelievable and walking along the beach and back every morning was delightful. It is very near to all sorts as well and I was able to have a variety of tours etc arranged for me. Also the best food in unawatuna by a mile. I could not imagine staying anywhere else!

This boutique hotel is located right on the beach and you couldn't ask fora better spot. The hospitality of the staff is second to none, polite, courteous and helpful. The food in the restaurant is delicious and varied enough for most tastes. The views are to die for and the location is within easy distance of the main town and on the doorstep of the BBC featured programme The Good Karma Hospital which we managed to visit. We spent 3 nights here and enjoyed every moment. The price is really good value for both rooms and meals.

It’s a lovely property adjoining the great ocean. While the architecture offers a very homely feeling , all the amenities and food offers great value for money.

It’s ideal for beach lovers and it’s away from the busy Unawattuna area, therefore it’s a great place to chill and have a quiet time too!

We returned to Sun n Sea after 6+ years. It felt like coming home. The room was very comfortable, and we loved hearing the sound of the waves. The food was fantastic and the staff warm and welcoming. They went out of their way to be helpful and to make sure our 2 children enjoyed their meals.

We highly recommend this small, cozy hotel and can't wait to stay here on our next visit to Sri Lanka.
