We stayed her for 2 nights after reading good reviews about the hospitality.
When we checked in we were given 2 prices: 3200 for the room and 4000 incl breakfast for 2 persons (so 400each).
We accepted and booked the whale watching tour for the next day via Praneeth. He told us about his new tuk tuk and said he would bring us to the harbour for free the next morning. We thoughed that was very nice of him. As the whale watching tour included breakfast (all tours do)we didnt take this at the Guesthouse.
When we checked out he wanted to charge us 4000 per night. We said we didnt have the breakfast the first night because we went whale watching and that the price for that night should be 3200 as said before. The host got really frustrated and changed the bill to 3200+4000 and then made us pay for the ride to the harbour too (200 rupees). Very strange... this guy has a strange vibe and really bad temper.. one second you're his best friend and he wants to share his arrak next thing you're a horrible guest (in his eyes) and he's picking a fight. We just paid and left.
Location wise the place is ok at a secluded beach. To walk to the main beach you have to follow quite a dangerous road for 10 min. Seriously the busses pass you at 100km an hour. The last night a guy on a scooter tried to steal my purse. Praneeth then told this had happend before... well thanks for the warning. So here: whatch your bags or take a tuk tuk back..
Wouldnt stay here again because of our bad experiences..
