Beautiful surroundings, quiet and only a few minutes walk from the beach. Most things on the main street are 5-10 minutes away. The staff is super helpful and friendly and the breakfast is one of the best I had while travelling in Sri Lanka. Rooms are large and clean. The only minor issue I had was with the metal rooms,...

We stayed at the Coco Bay Hotel during off season were not many people are at Arugam. We enjoyed our stay there very much! The rooms are very comfortable and AC is also available. Bathroom is standard and the breakfast is also good. The beach is a 5-10 min walking distance. Recommended!

This small hotel is an oasis close to the beach (2 mins walk). The rooms are big, comfortable and very clean with A/C (noisy, but absolutely no problem with ear-plugs). You have a porch to sit and relax in front of the rooms with a view into the gardens. The owner and staff are very friendly and offer help with...

We stayed at this place for one night. We were mainly focused on the safari to Kumana National Park and we just wanted a tidy place to spend the night. Overall the place is great. It is a small hotel with just five rooms but the rooms are in excellent condition compared to the money they charge. The rooms are...

Good accommodation. Yes it does not have as many facilities but you're mainly here just to sleep. Tea & coffee can be ordered if needed, rooms have an excellent AC and there's a mini fridge, no tv. It's close to everything and hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Main Street. Staff are very helpful and accommodating. I would...

Stayed here with my boyfriend for 7 nights and thought the location was perfect. The accommodation was clean, the breakfast great and the staff very helpful. The hotel is located in a little village just off of the Main Street but is actually much closer than lots of the other accommodation to the part of the beach with sun beds...
