I enjoyed a fantastic stay at Golden Beach Cottages in early March. Clare and Jo were terrific hosts and the room was clean and comfortable with an amazing view. If that weren't enough, there is also a talented chef running the kitchen and the seafood was super-fresh and delicious. I highly recommend the grilled prawns if they're among the day's...

My stay at Golden Beach cottages could not have been better. The owners are amazing and kept me laughing the whole time I was there. They are absolutely lovely. Between the two of them, I felt like I was right at home and could not have asked for better service. The restaurant has great food and they are super accommodating...

Awesome place to stay, family friendly and a relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely go back. The beach is beautiful and the staff and locals were helpful and generous with advice. The kids loved helping the local fishermen bring in the catch and feeding the dogs little fish that fell out of the net. Also want to say thanks for getting us...

Great place on the beach and the food is excellent, best curry I've had in 3 weeks! Clare, one of the hosts, is fantastic, even organised and let us watch the Six Nations rugby on her iPad! We booked 2 nights but stayed for 3, definitely the best place on the beach. Thank you.

An amazing guesthouse, right on the best part of Uppuveli beach, run by two British ladies and a friendly dog. Bungalow-style rooms, decorated with gusto, highly comfortable and clean, a combination of Sri Lankan hospitality and English attention to detail. Wifi has good signal even on the beach deck chairs. Excellent value for money. Many places to eat around, plus...

We had a normal room with 2 extra beds in it for the children but is was OK (the rooms are quite large). The bathroom is very simple and may need a refreshing... The situation is amazing: you are directly on the postcard beach of Uppuveli! The restaurant (Tonic's) is very good as well. We really enjoyed our stay there....

We booked for 2 nights and stayed for 5! The location is fantastic, yes it was expensive compared to everywhere else we stayed in Sri Lanka but at the end of our holiday it was the perfect location to relax. The hosts Jo and Claire are friendly, the meals in the restaurant are great, only a few metres to the...

I have mixed feelings about this stay. First the good things: - Owners are great, helpful and very friendly; - The Cottages are beach front in a beautiful place in Uppuvelli; - The food in the bar is good and has a good selection of national and international dishes; - Big room with AC and decent wifi. Now, the not...

Fantastic place to stay, we had 4 nights there whilst following the cricket around and it was a highlight of our 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. As everyone has mentioned Jo and Clare could not have been better hosts, great sense of humor. Sorry we did not top the 96 pots of tea. Kidneys may have given out. Fantastic value...
