Very helpful staff and courteous manager Mr. Reny De Silva. Every thing in nearly perfect natural setting. All day breakfast was great option so no rush to get up early for breakfast :)...

We loved this small boutique hotel with a very friendly staff under manager Reny D'silva. Especially the breakfast upto 2 pm policy and the happy hour cocktails. They suggested trips to Galle, arranged surfing lessons for our son and were generally very pleasant to be around.

We splurged for our last couple of days in Sri Lanka and stayed at this amazing hotel. Beautiful private beach and excellent pool. Lots of open spaces to hang out at. We booked "half-board" which included breakfasts and dinners, these turned out to be spectacular. The staff are incredibly well trained and were accommodating to our every need.

This hotel is small and not right in Unawatuna, but is located on a bay looking back to Galle which is safe for swimming with ideal surf for beginners. The Ocean privilege suite was a massive room which was perfect for us with 2 adults and 2 kids - the best family sized room in our entire visit to Sri...

The hotel is well located at the far end of the beach and a great place to stay to explore the coast from Galle Fort to Mirissa. Just order a tuk-tuk, and go!

We had a lovely and relaxing week at Coco Bay Unawatuna. Beautiful and scenic ocean-front location that is safe for young children. Great room, great service and outstanding food. Without exceptions, staff members were all a pleasure to deal with, accommodating, attentive and courteous. Thank you all at Coco Bay and we look forwards to returning.

Small boutique hotel with great rooms and fabulous staff. We loved everything about it. The small pool is in the shade most of the time, perfect for the kids but a little cool for me. But hey who uses the pool when you have the Indian Ocean on the other side of the sun lounger!
