We stayed at Sea rock villa for three daysin april 2012. The villa is quite new and is located right on the Bentota beach, just few meters from the sea, and has also a pool. The garden is green and well equipped with some sun decks. It's all well managed, by the owner Ravindra. The rooms are clean and the food is good. The staff, made by the locals is very friendly. They have also a tuk tuk, so it is possible to hire a driver for short rides to Bentota or Aluthgama. It is one of the best solution for those, who want to spend some days very close to the sea. Compliments to the staff. THey are doing very well.

we spent 2 nights at the sea rock villa and were happily surprised. we stayed there with our 3 children age 2,3 and 7. it is value for money and no big deal that it is not bentota downtown, since this is not the point of going to bentota anyway. actually, we found the beach right outside the property nicer than in bentota where the big hotels are placed. it was simply more suitable for our kids. amazing small garden with pool and plenty of shadow and sand to play with inside the garden. and it is placed right on the beach - so lovely!!! room was ok - nothing fancy but we felt comfortable and would definitely recommed this place. staff nice and friendly and food also ok!

Very fine location, Induruwa, far from the overcrowded beaches more south and far from the brown waters of the more northerly situated beaches. Directly at an almost deserted beach, nice swimming pool and very relaxing atmosphere and very clean and big rooms are the main advantages. Staff do their best and are very friendly. Food is ok but for Sri Lanka it could be better. Very good sleep in very big beds, airco and free wireless in the rooms and lobby area.
Flatscreen in room but never used it as it is such a beautiful island and such friendly people.
Newly built house with only two floors and four rooms. Very nice sea and pool views from all rooms. Manager always present and looking after its hotel. My stay could not have been better, especially because of the relatively cheap rates and cheap food and drinks prices.
So to be short a lot of comfort for a very fine price. There are many other small hotels and guesthouses along Galle Road but this one looks the nicest and is the newest and cleanest.

Room Tip: the three rooms on the first floor are the most spacious one, they have a smaller room on the ground...

We organised our stay at Sea Rock Villa through a guide, so were a little nervous as to what to expect.
We needn't have been.
The villa was spotless, new built and the rooms were very large and spacious. Good sized balconies to sit out on overlooking a very clean, pleasant pool.
The chef hadn't arrived, so we ate at a nearby restaurant, but that was not an issue as the food was scrumptios and he was in place for the last night of our stay. Ravi, the manager provided delicious breakfasts for us and whipped up a sandwich whenever we felt peckish, plus the beer was 250 rupees and no service charge/tax. That's cheap for a hotel/villa!
The gardens were lovely, with sun-shelter and beds for everyone. Right on the beach, so you could choose between the pool or the sea - and the beach was very safe, with wonderful waves, something our 8 year old appreciated.
Lying in the hammock or on a sunbed, with a cold beer in hand, listening to the waves crash gently on the beach was heaven. Mind you, we come from a dry country so a beer anywhere is heaven.
The place seems set up for couples (old or young) and young children may find little to entertain themselves.
Ravi will organise tuk-tuks for you to visit local attrractions such as elephant rides or turtle hatcheries, as well as the Brief Garden or even water skiing at Bentota (we used Siggi's - next to the German bakery). You can catch the bus to Bentota for 15 rupees each (children free). Tuk-tuks will get you there for 150 rupees if you bargain hard.

Directions?
If you want to get here, you can catch the train from Colombo Fort. Sea Rock Villa is no more than 100m from Induruwa station and you can walk South to it or take a 50 rupee tuk-tuk.
This'll save you the tortuous 2 1/2 hour car drive down and save $50 each way.
I think you could also catch a bus from Colombo to Inuruwa, but I don't think I'd recommend it.

Couple of slight cons:
Noise from the road can be loud.
No TV in the rooms.
Apparently both of these issues are being "fixed". Windows along the road-facing corridor balcony to cut out the road noise. TVs being put in rooms. Read future reviews from others to see if these have been addressed.

Overall a super place. Really I'd like to keep it to myself, but then no-one else would patronise it, it would go out of business and I wouldn't have it there to go to again.
Highly recommended.
