The best part of the hotel is the friendly, kind and helpful owner, Sunil and his family! It was a very pleasure to meet them. The hotel is in a quiet and calm area close to the beach, clean room with mosquito net, and delicious food(eating outside may be cheaper but I highly recommend eating at the hotel, worth it...

We were sent by Tropi Turtle to Sunil Rest. It is a quiet and clean place with a small breakfast.Sunil was friendly and helpful if we had a question or request. Basic but nice - maybe a little overpayed.

Tiled floors, clean beds, mosquito net - the room was bright and comfortable. The area is nice for leasurely strolls, the beach is 2mins walk. No issues with Wi-Fi until the last day when it simply needed a top-up. Sunil is very friendly, so is the rest of his family.

We came across Sunil Rest by chance as it was recommended by our Tuk Tuk driver. The place is really cheap - we paid 2500 rupees per room per night (£12) and is great for that price. The family are lovely and always happy to help. Just like all Sri Lankans, they offered to make lots of travelling arrangements and...

A family run place who manage multiple properties in Polhena. A helpful and smiling lot which re-energizes you. The rooms are basic and clean which is what they are projecting, so we were happy with that. Sunil's parents stay close by and have a few rooms there as well, his mother has a beautiful smile like his wife and his...
