Clean and big rooms, with a great shower. Food in the restaurant is delicious, possibly the best pizza in town. Friendly and welcoming host with happy staff who always have a smile on their face. Beautiful beach on your doorstep. Highly recommend. Also located 10-15min walk from the most beautiful surfing beach: Hiriketiya, and a short bus ride to the...

Quiet and excellent beach resort. Best quality/price ratio we have seen. Very friendly people, good airco'd room, nice garden and patio, fantastic beach with nice shade roofs and beds. Good food at low price (go for the daily set menu.)

One of the worst hotels that we spent a night. Dirty smelly room. You cant offer room like that for more than 50,- EUR. We travel all around the world but this room was really bad. Toilet full od cockroaches. The wall and bed were really dirty. Sorry but this hotel/room never ever recomended.

This hotel is the best place in Sri Lanka. Wonderful beach, nice and clean rooms with best bed linen and towels, polite personal. The owner is very helpful and doing everything for guests. The cook is the best- the food is perfect, delicious and tasty. Recommend for all.

We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in and saw our rooms and the common areas. This is for sure the best value for money in Dickwella. This is a basic hotel but they have everything you need to relax and have a great holiday! The front garden near the beach provides a lot of shade and creates relaxing armosphere....

Very nice accomodation. Room and bathroom cleaned on a daily basis by staff. Few meters far from the beach. Beach kept clean, really quiet place as there were only us during a day, only few locals walked through.Staff is available whole day if necessary. Restaurant is providing local foods. 5 minutes walking distance from the city center. Quiet place. Regular...

perfect place if you find a nice and quiet beach. We had a room just in front of the beach and was the best room that I had on the beach area in Sri Lanka. They offer italian food, not so tasty but the garden and the people here makes the difference :). Very friendly and helpfull staff. Good prices.

We, my wife and I have lived in Sri Lanka for quite some time. As a matter of fact travelling there few times every year as we are currently living in Bangalore, India but still thouroughly in love with the country (www.hermiens.waarbenjij.nu). Quality has a price, that is for sure. Having stayed in Dikwella Resort (next door) for several years...

The main plus point about Villa Jayananda is that the rooms are very clean and comfortable, with a good size bathroom and powerful shower. Also, the hotel is located directly on a very, very quiet beach. Following on from that last point, Dikwella is a very quiet town with very little to see or do! We made the mistake of...

Villa Jayananda is more a hotel than a B&B. It's located right on the beach, which is very pretty, but unfortunately quite dirty next to the hotel as lots of garbage washes up from the ocean and they only clean the beach right infront of the hotel. The sea here is very rough and it's impossible to have a real...
