My wife and myself spent a week at the Thaproban Beach House. I found our room to be clean and the hotel to be tidy and neat. The General Manager was very much on top of things and did not hesitate to address any complain we had. The only thing I would advise the readers not to do, is to...

We've just returned from a fabulous trip in Sri Lanka, one of the best holidays ever! We were travelling around the country and then spent 10 days in Thaproban Beach House 3*, which was the best part of the whole trip! We loved absolutely everything. The hotel is really tiny and has only 14 rooms, which is good for a...

We cannot say enough about this place! The Thaproban Beach House is everything you could possibly want in a vacation beach house. We (a family of 4) vacationed here with another family and had the absolute BEST time possible. We stayed in the two beachfront rooms on the lower level. I highly recommend these rooms to anyone looking to stay...

This hotel doesn´t deserve such a good score. It is definitely overpriced. We paid 110 EUR per night and it was not worthy. We found too late (booking from home) that there are many hotels with much higher standard and quality in Sri Lanka for that, or even lower price. We had the penthouse suite, but used only one room....

Thaproban Beach House is a gem of a guest house. It's not perfect but that's all part of it's charm! We had the Penthouse suite which had 2 queen sized beds on 2 floors with a large baclony looking out to the ocean. the beds were incredibly comfortable. The only drawback is the water pressure on the shower, but that's...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location was great right on the beach in the main hub of Unawatuna. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We used the hotel car service and a lovely driver called Diaz picked us up from the airport. We then decided to use...

We stayed here for three nights in October 2013. The hotel was average with plus points! It was clean, the people were friendly and helpful, it served good food, provided mosquito nets and plug (not that we saw any), a comfy bed, tea and coffee facilities, free water and there was a fridge in the room. It also provided a...

I have read the previous reviews and now doubt their legitimacy. I have just stayed here and found Thaproban Beach House to be an over priced, over managed and under resourced property. Firstly the staff are welcoming and friendly, in all areas. They strive to make you feel comfortable and at home but the property itself could be good if...

Located right on the beachfront, we had 4 nights here. I think this hotel is overpriced but the friendly staff help to make up for that. Breakfast was only ok, we had both the western and Sri Lankan. The Sri Lankan breakfast was very small and you could not get it until 8.30 am. We booked a deluxe room and...
