I stayed for two nights at the Unawatuna Beach Resort. We had a lovely new modern room, with a spa, and balcony with a beautiful view of the ocean.
The staff were friendly and very accommodating.
I highly recommend half board, the breakfast and dinner buffet was absolutely delicious, one of the best I have ever had.
The location is good, right in the middle of everything.
Please note that you are not able to sit on the beach in front of the hotel, it is rapidly disappearing and there are sandbags holding the beach together!
It is a great location to stay, and easy to do a day trip to Galle, which is only 15 mins tuk tuk ride away.
