Had a visit during november weekend. Very good location by the sea. Rooms are quiet ok. But didnt have lock for bathroom and the main door lock was a real hastle. Beds are quiet comfortable. Restaurant prices are very high though the food served is delicious. Variety is not enough. Friendly staff. Great location. Enjoyed the stay.

Beautiful room with a huge comfy bed and a view from the shared balcony area over the beach. Location excellent, right on the beach. Staff very helpful and the seafood we had in the evening - King prawns and the fish was the best we had in a 2 week stay to Sri Lanka (the King prawns were so huge...

We only had dinner here several time. Not a room but the food was great and the waiter, an older man, was so kind, funny and helpful. The ckicken cordonblue was great and the fresh pina colada was to die for. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

My wife and I recently spent 5 very enjoyable days at The Villa at Unawatuna Beach. The position of the villa is on the beach in the centre of the bay so very convenient to explore the area. Basic but clean accomodation and the staff are all happy and attentive to your needs. Hire a scooter up the road and...

We stayed for two nights and we had lots of fun here. The food was tasty. Like the way they have set the tables by the beach. Looked very romantic in the night. This is by the famous Unawatuna beach. Will definitely go there again.

Perfect place just on the beach, small place with only six rooms and extremely nice and friendly staff and a very good kitchen. Nice and clean and very nice interior design good value for money. I recommend this place as a base in Sri Lanka and go on tour or two or one tour for a couple of days and...

I stayed here two nights with 3 friends. We walked in to ask about availabilities and reception was more than happy to help us out. Good sized rooms. Not super clean. We paid $75 USD a night, which looking at it now was maybe a bit too expensive for what it is. Great breakfast though! Super thick, white crusty toast...

We booked his place last minute and when we got here, we were a bit disappointed as it doesn't really look like the photos. They advertise the room with a balcony and terrace and it has neither . The balcony is the corridor that leads to your room . Breakfast every morning is also quite disappointing and they ask you...

The Villa Hotel is located in Unawatuna close to Galle. One time Unawatuna was one of the best beaches in the world until Tsunami came and spoilt it. However it is still a nice place to stay and The Villa make it possible. Good seafood with a seafood market at The Villa beach where you can pick fresh fish, prawns...
