Known as Shanthi when we stayed there (August 2014), not sure if under new management or not. We arrived late at night after a long drive through the rain from Colombo. We checked into the first room and were greeted by an overbearing smell of mildew. They moved us to the room next door and the smell was less but...

The staff was very nice and friendly. They are always there. The rooms were nice and clean with enough space. Some rooms even have a new bathroom. Some have a shared balcony. Beautiful seaview and breakfast on a nice terras.

We were booked here by our driver that we hired to tour us around the country. We had one of the cabanas and it did not have AC. It was very hot, humid and stuffy when we arrived and this didnt change. There was a mosquito net, which was good because there were bugs. It was clean but no one...

We stayed here for one night in May when our plans unexpectedly changed and we opted to spend a night near Galle. Our driver recommended this place to us, saying it was in Unawatuna. We wish we'd stopped at an internet cafe before staying here so that we would have known to avoid it! The positives were that the room...

I stayed with my friend in this garbage house. I didnt realize till I reached Colombo that they had stolen my money. There is a big cabana which has a front and back door. You get the keys to the front door only. You can understand what that means. I didnt have time to lodge a compliant since I had...

It did not help that we were there during the rainy season. BUT: rooms are depressing and dump -it started raining inside the room, which became half flooded AND the bed was infested with flees!! We had had itchy marks for one week afterwards. The owner added insult to injury by telling us to "come again"!! Bear in mind that...

We stayed here for a couple of nights; we had a big room with a fan and it was reasonably cheap. The bathroom was small and stuffy, the shower dripped (and had a precarious looking plug in the wall directly under it) but was OK for the price. Other rooms, including smaller, cheaper ones and some with air con were...

Well, for $26 per night, it's tough to expect a lot. We got: * great views * on the beach access to lovely beach * breakfast included in price * smiles and a friendly manner * threadbare towels - just ask and they will give you more : ) We didn't get: * housekeeping * AC * any kind of...
