Really liked this place very cute little setup. Rooms were good. Bungalow was nice with a beach front. Regular room too. The beds were comfy. The cute little stray dogs were uber friendly. Food was good as well! Didn't try the surfing lessons but have heard good things.

Our room was a bungalow, more adequate for a couple. it was clean and cozy. there is a nice little pool and also a small bar at the beach. could be a very good spot for couples who want to learn/ surf together.

This is ideal if you want to do nothing but learning to surf, the beach break is ideal for beginners and right in front of the hotel, your view though is a huge Marriott hotel flat under construction next doors. On the grounds of the hotel it all looks nice and the managers are kind people service minded. However overall...

After booking here to visit friends and make use of the pool for a couple of days, we were really disappointed it was a) out of action and b) looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. The room was comfortable , good AC and close proximity to the beach. Breakfast included was tasty and enjoyable. MASSIVE downside was the...

The good: Funky decor in communal areas with lots of places to hang and use WiFi etc. The restaurant area is particularly funky and there is a modern art/ surf theme all around. The rooms are clean and recently painted, beds large and comfortable - bathrooms functional, old fashioned and tired but I have to say spotlessly clean. The manager,...

Dear Niall! Thank you for review! Want to inform you we upgrade beach area with more sunbeds! The thing is you came at high season time, so usually our place is crowd, so that's why you think beach area so small. Your right, that was the 'last minute booking', it means you booked the last basic room. Yes, that's right,...

We've staid for 2 weeks in January 2016. We really enjoyed - accommodation, very hospital staff, and especially food, I guess the best in Sri-Lanka. It's perfect place for those who want to surf, party (a little) and spent great time. Next we'll be back for sure.
