I am a tour leader and this place was the first one where we stayed and they were welcoming. It was a quiet place, very secure and the experience of a sri lankan cooking class was a great time. Thank you to all the staff of this friendly hotel. The manager is a very good man too!

We booked this hotel because I needed to do something for my job and were looking for a hotel with wi-fi. Well, wi-fi did not work half of the time, the second half it was useless, since it was slower than dial-up speed.

Second, in bathroom (sink), we found hair, even pubic hair.

Third, towels were old, dirty and torn on edges. We asked for fresh towels and got pretty much the same quality - smelling of mold.

Last, but not least, the cuttlery for breakfast was dirty - not a good feeling when you're about to eat!

The only positive things were the friendly staff and nicely arranged frontyard.

I was in Dallawella Beach Resort during early June 2012. It was a pretty decent hotel by the beach and the prices are very reasonable (way cheaper than hotels in Colombo, the capital) .The staff was very polite and their service was excellent. What is more, I have to mention the wooden cabana just by the beach. I highly recommend it to any one who wants to experience the unique charm of shimmering ocean just outside your door.The restaurant has always served excellent food (should try the sri lankan MILK RICE). Over all, It may be bit difficult to reserve the cabana since they only have one, but it is definitely worth it.

Room Tip: Go for the cabana

We have been staying at The Dalawella Resort for two nights, we booked for four and have decided to stay longer. It is very quiet and the beach is beautiful. Other visitors are saying that the hotels in Galle are much more expensive and no where near as beautiful. The rooms are simple but clean, the beach cabana is very pretty, nice big shower room and nice and clean. Could do with a few more sun beds but ten minutes walk down the beach there are more on offer and a swim safe Laguna. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay here if you are on a medium budget and want to be right by the sea. As we sit on our balcony you can see turtles swimming in the sea in front of you. Beautiful and such a breath of fresh air after e travelling around India for a couple of months. The staff are very friendly, smiling all the time and so helpful serving breakfast to us way past the cut off time as we slept in....

Room Tip: There is only one cabana if you want simple log style cabin with the sea right in front of you so bo...

The hotel is located a bit away from the busy main beach in Unawatuna which suited us perfectly. The waves are a bit too high here but only a short walk on the beach away is a natural rock pool perfect for swimming and a bit of snorkelling.
The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and the food absolutely delicious as everything is prepared freshly. They go and buy the fish we order! We've been offered a range of Sri Lankan delicacies such as rare fruits.
The rooms are spacious and clean and well lit!
A perfect stay! :-)

What i liked about this place was the location, attentive staff. Small resort with 8 rooms. Only downside i saw was couple of dogs on the beach which bothering my son little bit. They have excellent view of the beach from the seabeds.
We did the right thing in choosing this resort. Thanks a lot for making for stay comfortable and memorable.
