This was the only real hotel we stayed in in Sri Lanka (the rest were guest houses). You would definitely find cheaper (way cheaper) places around, but we were pleased to have hotel standard for a change - rooms were very clean, huge bed, towels changed daily, room cleaned daily etc. The hotel has two parts - there is a restaurant + sun beds right on the beach, and across a narrow road there is the reception and the rooms and also a pool they seem to be very proud of (it is true it was the only one we saw in Sri Lanka, but why would you get into a pool when there is a gorgeous beach right there). The room was big, there was a wardrobe so no complaints,
The service was ok but it was sort of like they were trying to be professional but still in training :) Breakfast quite nice, my friend was tired of eggs that they seem to serve everywhere for breakfast so she asked for curd which wasn't on the menu and it was no problem.
Unawatuna beach is beautiful but quite small, good place for swimming though as there are only tiny waves compared to other places. The village itself is quite charming - lots of beach restaurants and also cafes along the road, it is one of the livelier places. A bus to Galle takes only 20-30 mins and it is definitely worth the visit.
