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 conversation was quickly, the check in easy, the staff absolutely friendly, helpful and nice, everytime, thank you for that!
The house has a warm atmosphère and the room was wonderful clean with AC and Wan.
The location is only a view minutes from the beach, on the main route with lots of restaurants and small shops to buy everything you need.

It is a very nice place. The room is really beautiful and the location is not far from the beach and restaurants.
The best thing about the accommodation is the extremely friendly and helpful people there. Gamini, Dharmakeerthi and, last but not least, the ladies of the house were extremely friendly and let us take part in an important Buddhist ceremony. The friendliness that was shown to us cannot be compared with anything. we have become a small family in a short time. The accommodation is therefore more than top and a real recommendation.
We will be happy when we see our new family again

Great hotel, comfy spacious room with a very large double bed, excellent value for money. The staff are super friendly and welcoming, Sunil the manager who worked on reception is such a nice, friendly guy. He would always ask how we were/what our plans for the day were with a smile and nothing was too big of an ask. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in unawatuna, will definitely be returning.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for a few days and enjoyed it. The beds were really comfortable, WiFi excellent and the aircon was nice. There was a balcony and also room service! Few hundred meters to the beach with a couple of nice restaurants along the way! Would really recommend and stay there again if we return!

This place is by far the best budget hotel we've stayed in during our one month travels around Sri Lanka. It is spotlessly clean, everything feels new, the bed huge and comfy, the room had nice lighting (a rarity!), plenty of hot water and nice new bathroom, food very cheap and delicious, no mark up on drinks so again very cheap. White fluffy towels, I kid you not! It is very well run, feeling like a hotel, and with night security so u can get drinks late in the evening. It was quiet at night and an easy 10 min walk through the town to the beach (or 100 in a tuktuk). Really liked it here!!

Clean and well maintained rooms with hot showers, very comfortable beds and friendly helpful staff. Wifi was fast and available in rooms.

While it's on the main road there is no traffic noise in the rooms. The beach is about a 5 minute walk from the resort.

There's a bus stop right outside for transport to Galle or further east on the coast.
