We stayed here for 9 days in a sea facing room. View was amazing, you can see the turtles swimming close to the beach. Breakfast was fabulous and large enough that we didn't need to eat lunch! Staff were very good and worked hard to ensure that everybody was happy. Large beach a short stroll away with lots of sunbeds,...

The staff were super friendly. Especially the owner Chandana. Our room was clean, nice and cool with the combination of both aircon and fan. Bathroom was clean and spacious, and rain shower had excellent water pressure even on the 2nd floor - important if you have long hair and want to wash it every time after going into the sea!...

We spend six nights at the hotel. You cannot live any closer to the sea than this. We loved the view and placement of the hotel… which is just outside the larger beach area. The staff is outstanding and very helpful. The hotel offers some of the best food we have had during our stay in Sri Lanka.

We booked this place based on the reviews and were a bit disappointed when we arrived. I'd booked a basic room as it was the last room. It is a basic room!! Though it did have AC and a fan it didn't have any outside space really and it opened on to the road. It also smelled quite damp. Even...

Our stay at the hotel was excellent , We arrived at the resort unplanned but they made sure we were given a great room and taken care of. The access to the water and ocean is to die for and nearly a personal natural infinity pool. The hotel is very close to the buzzing beach but yet not too close...

Mr. Chandana, the proprietor at La Veranda di Serena, handled every aspect of our week in the sun with grace and efficiency. From arrival in Colombo to taking off again 8 days later he delivered an attention to detail that inspired confidence and made the foibles of Sri Lanka charming rather than irritating. The Hotel is Boutique and beautifully located...

A lovely hotel with all the family around. Suitable for families and couples. Right on the beach. 5 mins walk into the village. 2 mins walk from the nearest good restaurant. Having said that the food here is very good. Great local food. The sea is noisy, very noisy. Getting used to it now. The odd bus and horn wakes...

Slightly off the main strip, this hotel is a great little gem in one corner of Unawatuna beach, perfect little hotel for couples in a quiet spot right next to the ocean. Resident turtles swim right under your balcony! The hotel staff were extremely helpful and really go out of their way to assist you even after we left the...
