We stayed for three nights at Sam’s and were very pleased by the family’s friendly greeting and service mind. Everything was very clean and they also had very good breakfast. We would not hesitate to stay at this house again! ☺️

I visited this place for a research with my friends and the owner was being very very supportive and hospitable. He took time from his busy schedule and spent almost the whole day with us contacting the responsible authorities and treating us well. We got all the information we wanted. And it is a very clean and peaceful place to spend your vacation with no interruptions or unnecessary problems

Very friendly staff trying to help with everything, breakfast and dinner are optional (pre-booking the day before required). Clean/large size room with mosquito cover over the bed, luckily we were further in the back of the house because the road in front is very busy/loud with lots of traffic. It can be a bit of a challenge getting over the street to the nearby beach depending on the time of the day. The local bus stops nearby and costs 25 rupees pP to/ and from Galle. TukTuk for the same distance was offered at 400. A number of nice breakfast/lunch/dinner options nearby in Unawatuna opposite the busy road. We enjoyed our stay with the super friendly hosts!
