Full disclaimer - I was taught to surf by Matty in Portugal. After a chat with Matty last October, he persuaded me to venture away from my usual Algarve beaches in search of warmer waves - so I booked up a trip to the Surf Camp Sri Lanka @ 7th Sky Idyll Guesthouse. On arrival after a long flight and...

Spent 3 weeks there in December - Magic place & spots! You get a good taste of Sri Lankan vibes, with great food and the locals working there - Matt & the team of surf coaches make sure everyone is looked after. The camp is literally in front of 3 surf spots :-) Rooms are nice and clean - You...

During our 2 ½ week trip through Sri Lanka, we spent one week at the Seven Sky Guesthouse for surfing. As we were both beginners with less and more experience, we participated in the surf camp. The negative noise we read upfront in Trip Advisor raised our curiosity. What will we really find on site! In a nutshell, we had...

I had a wonderful time at 7th Sky Idyll. It's not one of those generic hotels owned by a European guy, it's 100% Sri Lanka and that makes is so nice. No over polite stuff, just honest friendly people. Your room might not be cleaned automatically every day, but you just ask for it and someone will take care of...

I come here every year for a month or two to surf and to escape the European winter. The guest house is clean and the staff are very friendly. Lot's of negative reviews on here which is kind of sad. People wanting a European experience in Sri Lanka should go stay in a faceless sterile hotel somewhere. If you're looking...

We were travelling in Sri Lanka for 4 weeks but this was by far the worst experience we had! The service is (except one man on the bar) really bad! They hardly speak english and are rude too. In the room was a used razor and it wasn't cleaned at all. The mats were so dirty we thrpow them out,...

I stayed here as a last minute decision and what a regret. The door onto the balcony wouldn't lock properly, there was no bin in the room and the 2 small lights on the wall were not enough to see around the room, little own read. The bathroom was so small you had to open the door and close it...

Visited this place for lunch. It took 20 minutes to get drinks. After one hour waiting for the food, we were told its gonna be another 20 minutes to get fried noodles. After 1,5h we left without eating. Very arrogant service. Avoid this place!!!

I have never seen such a poor service in my entire life...35 minutes to get the menu (we had to leave before getting it)! The personnel is completely overwhelmed with only three tables of customers. The waiters did not care about new customers. Anyway, food seemed to be horrible. In a word, avoid this place and go to another restaurant!!
