Positives: small, clean, well run, quiet*, great access to the beach, reasonable price, good location away from the noisy main beach*
Negatives: peculiar food and drink policies (as noted above) but in-house restaurant and drinks are not expensive , not on Unawatuna proper (this can be a downside for those requiring easy access to Unawatuna's restaurants and nightlife but was actually an advantage to us - Unawatuna is in 5min tuk-tuk ride anyway), *yes, trains can be heard but this didn't bother us at all (although we usually sensitive to such things) We stayed in a cabana 20m from the ocean where any noise is well masked by the waves - i would never call this place "noisy"
Overall: would return, would recommend. (see also our photos)
