The web site of this "resort" shows quite promising pictures of the building itself and of its surroundings. But really, if you have any option of staying somewhere else in Unawatuna - or why not in Galle - do it! Try to avoid Miltons at all costs. And definitely never ever book a so called "standard room" like my parents did - although it is super cheap, it is very filthy and nasty, and you will be surrounded by mosquitos all night long. The only nice thing about this place is the view of the ocean - but it seems to be constructed dangerously close to the water, into a cliff - probably not legal, and definitely not environmentally sustainable. The owner was all smiley and kind, but most of the staff were really creepy I find - they were often staring at you for minutes from the other end of the room, some of them did not seem to understand English (even such a simple thing as ordering a tea!!) and then there was a whole other bunch that seem to just be "hanging around" on the premises (staff? relatives of the hotel owner?) no idea who they were and what their function was. But made me feel very uncomfortable anyway. We got a so called "deluxe room" and it was ok - or should I say, it will be ok, once it is finished. The staff were literally moving in our furnitures as we arrived. The bathroom zink was not yet painted (e.g grey and rough concrete) and the TV was not connected and had no channels. This is not what I would call a deluxe room!! But of course the owner had no problems to charge a full deluxe room rate - what a joke! A scam actually. Besides this, since there is a major and heavily trafficked road running just at the back of the hotel, it literally felt like we were sleeping on a high way! Extremely noisy! The doors to the "deluxe rooms" are paper thin, and you could easily open them with a gentle kick - the security is non-existant. I am still angry that they made us pay so much for such a crappy room. Very disappointing! Next time I will definitely head for some cosy and well kept place with good service inside of the Fort Galle instead.
