“Great, uncomplicated, clean place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2011

This is probably the type of accommodation I like best. Small, personal, clean and uncomplicated. It is directly on the beach, you'll have breakfast with a great view.
The rooms are quite modern, they seem to have renovated recently, and everything is in order. Breakfast is good, and staff is very friendly. There is really nothing to complain about.
Although the Galle-Matara road passes right behind the hotel (this is the case in many hotels in Unawatuna), you don't hear any traffic because the sea is much louder. So the road didn't bother us at all. We had a nice experience in this hotel, because the cook showed us how to cook real Sri Lankan rice&curry.

A friend of mine recommended this hotel to me. We booked in to it for 2 nights last March. I have fond memories of it so thought I would capture them in a Tripadviser review. The hotel is between the main Galle Road and the beach. Once you are in to the hotel you wouldn' t know you were so near the main road. We stayed in one of the 1st floor (cheaper) rooms. It was a simple room facing onto a terrace over the rocks of the sea. The rooms have slatted doors so they are airy. There is a large fan thing on the wall which stops the room getting too hot and no doubt confuses any insects. I loved lying in bed listening to the sea. It was so much more pleasant than being in a sealed room with air conditioning on. There is a fanstastic view of the bay from the shared Terrace in front of the room. We spent a long time there watching the comings and goings on the beach. To get to the main drag there is no need to go via the road, you can stroll there via the beach. I hope to be back.

This a pleasant small hotel situated on a small headland right at the end of Unawatuna beach. 2 storeys high, the ground floor rooms are supposedly better than 1st floor but couldn't see why. We stayed on ground floor so you do step right out onto the small tree shaded terrace overlooking the bay. First floor rooms open onto a large wooden balcony and appear to have been recently refurbished. Room had decent air con and mozzie net around bed. Bathroom is shared with unenclosed shower area which is fine, although the separate shower head for hot water supply had no wall mounted holder so thats kind of stupid. Breakfast a simple affair of fresh fruit, bread and eggs. Step right out onto the beach and you can walk around the bay to the "main" strip of beach bars/restaurants where a good choice of food and a cold Lion beer is available, and a bit more life than exists at Sun n Sea. Walking from hotel to centre of bay area along the main road not so much fun due to the manic traffic - speeding crazy buses race by at dangerous speeds. When you hear the diesel growl and the honking horn, step onto the verge quick. Lots of Bajaj 3 wheelers available nearby to take you into Galle (which was a bit of a let down).
Hotel does not take credit cards so have cash.
