For 5-Star paradise check into the Fortress at 600$ a night, alternatively check-in to 7th Sky Idyll for a clean, friendly, atmospheric stay at a reasonable price. This is Sri Lanka; adapt.
The staff will go out of their way to help you; the owner has local knowledge and genuinely wants his guests to have a great time - but of course he is trying to make a profit at the same time, be realistic.The rooms are very basic but clean; the trick is getting to know the cleaner and he will confirm with you whether you need your room serviced - and if necessary he will do this every day, The guest house also has a 24 hr security patrol.
Breakfast is included and is a good spread of fruit, bread and eggs. The menu in the restaurant is however limited and food takes quite some time to arrive.
The guest house is right on the beach, you can hear and see the sea from your room, and apparently the surf is great (I don't know anything about surfing).
The Christmas eve party is great fun and really well organised - BBQ, DJs and photographer and all the staff get involved.
7th Sky is undergoing constant upgrading also, so the standard is likely only to improve and returning guests were complimenting all the changes that had been made in just the past year since their last visit.
