Comparing with several others hotels (it's not my 1st time in Sri Lanka), i was pleasently surprise of quality of services, delicious food and great portions for adequate price. Top 5 points you want to come back to this hotel: - the most amazing view in Unawatuna - close enough to the entertainment part of beach, but not to much...

Overall, this hotel is a good place to stay but I am sure there are better places in Unawatuna (you just need to book in advance). Advantages - The view is amazing because the hotel is literally located on the beach. - You can have breakfast, lunch and beers while lying on the sunbeds. - The sea is clear and...

Banana Garden Restaurant and hotel seemed to be a new spot. Not all light fixtures and decorations are in place but the rooms are large, clean and surprisingly quiet (despite its distance to the main road). We were on third floor and really enjoyed our view to the ocean. Rooms were nice too (no AC). We very much enjoyed our...

I was here in March & April of 2012. My rating is for the restaurant that is on the bottom floor & the beach. I have to say the food and the service were fantastic. The staff made me feel at home, & were very attentive. We ended up skipping the meals at our hotel, & eating mostly here. I...

A nice place to stay for a day or two. We was staying there for one night. The room was small, the aircondition was partly out of order, There was a fan in the roof, an a refrigerator at the room, so it was ok. The best with this place is the location. Directly at the beach. But be aware...

Great place to stay. We had a room that was literally on the beach, which was amazing. It was the perfect start to our week on the south coast. The rooms don’t include breakfast, unlike many others stays in Sri Lanka, so be conscious of that; however, it didn’t matter as we found a very cheap and delicious rotti place...

Stayed here 2 nights, reception did the old switch-a-roo on the room shown (suddenly it was booked), so we were stuck with a lower room, and literally had to walk through the water to get onto the stairs. The upper rooms with balconies and space for chairs are better. Our room bordered the restaurant as well as the storage room...

So fist off the beach! If ur looking to get drunk with tatto british thugs on a dirty badly managed beach this is the place for you! Non authentic sri lankin beach and very over rated and over priced hotels! Hotel: located 20 meters from the big night club, right on the main road so forget about a good rest!...
