The room was just the bed. Nothing else. Small window, but too little for some fresh air, as the room was super hot and the ventilator almost useless. We had to ask for sheets. Toilet "bathroom" wasn't clean. also no paper nor basket, not even a roof. Also under the bed still things from the guests before. Worst stay in...

Was good value for Arugam Bay and the room was simple but suited us fine as we were there mainly for the beach. Good bathroom facilities although they are open roofed so very hot during the day and could be slightly frustrating if it was rainy as no place to put clothes/towel to keep dry while you shower. The sheet...

Moon Eyes is actually two places in one. Part of the site is actually the Crescent Bay hotel too. Both handle each other's bookings and help each other out so nothing massively has change since previous reviews aside from the tragedy that led to the changes. We stayed in two en suite air conditioned rooms and found them clean, comfortable,...

Not only Moon Eyes Beach Hotel is a nice place to stay, with rooms and cabanas but his owner is the best cooker around. Ask him for fish dishes, prawns, kohthu prawms whatever you have in mind besides the dishes on the Menu, he will cooke it for you. The rooms are traditional with verandas. This is a surfing spot...

Nothing fancy here, but the rooms were clean, very well located and staff were good. Back packer surf vibe but goes for the rest of the town. Not too noisy either as its on the edge where the town begins.

We stayed at moon eyes for 2 weeks whilst travelling. Unfortunately during my travels I got appendicitis! As you can imagine not many people speak fluent English and was a very scary experience, Thaseem and his family were amazing to both me and my boyfriend! They organised all my Hospital trips and dealt with all my doctors, drivers etc. They...

Hi, four of us stayed there for three nights last August. Location was very good, beach near by, market with fresh fruit just out the street. Host was FANTASTIC, he was even so kind to prepare us lunch, with fresh tuna that he caught that morning. I was really one of the most delicious lunches that we have through out...

The guys who run this place are relaxed and accommodating, sort everything out for you. A 1 minute walk to the beach. Good food as well. The highlight is having showers with no roof, very cool. Thanks a lot!

This is a good place to stay if you are looking for a budget room. The restaurant attached is also very tasty and good value for money. The guesthouse is the opposite end of the road to the main bars but that is no problem- it is just a 10 minute walk along the beach/road. Lots of shops around. The...
