This resort is near perfect! Great location where you can enjoy golden sandy beach and watch green sea turtle most of the time, nice place to surf, very reasonably price, attractive public rooms, comfortable and spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, attentive service, good breakfasts and probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Well done to all concerned!

Excellent location, 10-min walk from the lagoon where you can actually swim in the ocean. 10 minutes by car from Galle. The restaurant in the hotel offers tasty meals for dinner, but if you like changing restaurants they are all nearby. Spacious rooms, balcony with the view of the ocean, hospitable staff. Definitely value for money.

Stayed here for 5 nights and the staff were absolutely brilliant and accommodating. The accommodation is very basic, but to a good standard. Overlooking the beach and hearing the waves all day is fantastic! It is a great location and close to Unawatuna town, without all the noise. Would definitely return

I stayed here 3 nights. Rooms are good and have air con and fan. The air con came in handy for hot days. Has cable TV which I watched late at night. Breakfast was great and evening meals good. It has direct beach access and can walk along to other beaches. It is about a 15min walk to the tourist...

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was awesome. We arrived late one night after 7 hours driving and we were exhausted. There was a mix up with our agoda booking however the management handled it immediately with a few phone calls. We were starving and there was nothing open near by and the manager offered to get us...

Was here for one night over the weekend. The place is nice cuz it has direct beach access. Rooms are very basic but then again its about US$ 55-60 so you can't really expect the world. Decent breakfast and the staff are nice. If you want a nice small quite place to relax and enjoy the beach this is it,...

The location of this small hotel is execellent. If you want to spend the day at the beach or lay on a sunbed/hammock listening to the waves, this place will deliver. The room was spacious, clean and had a comfortable large bed. The bathroom was also clean and tidy. The food was good and staff, attentive. Overall, a very comfortable...

We stayed at this resort and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is superb, the ocean waves are lashing the resort boundary walls and you find total peace and tranquility here. It's a small place and very we'll run with most efficient staff serving good food and attending to all your needs. I strongly recommend this plcace.

Had a Wonderful four days stay here, the hotel is small but extremely clean and welcoming! We took a room upstairs, and it had a exceptional view of the sunset. All in all it was classy, had everything we needed and also it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Although the hotel is situated just off a main road there...

We stayed for only one night because everywhere else near Una seemed to be booked (it is Chinese New Year when we went). I will preface my rating of 3 stars as 3 stars for a 2 star lodge. As is typical for a 2 star lodge, the room is sparse, linens were old, towels were thread bare. But, everything...
