We don't have too high standards, but this place is just terrible. Consider other options nearby.
The good: The owner, Satesh, is actually very nice and the dinners are not expensive, however this places doesn't worth even paying 1000 rupee. I also think it was a mistake that he added in the bill an extra 500 rupee more than agreed at first, as he changed it after we noticed.
The bad: We got a room with draining from the ceiling that continued all night long. Certain times it was flowing. We had to go and ask for towels to absorb the water on the floor, where we couldn't put our bags.
It was actually funny, during the night - a few nice mushrooms grew from this water and some mold. It was caused from the sudden rain and some excuses about monkeys doing things.
It might happen, true, but the way it was dealt was bad. We had a similar problem in Polonnaruwa, where we got another room and a lowered price that we didn't even ask for.
The worst: My girlfriend didn't agree to take a shower (you might disagree as well!), because of a stinky smell of fish and seaweed. You can see the algae coming out of the shower head. Of course there's no toilet paper or towels, but it might be acceptable in Sri Lanka.
Another bad: on TripAdvisor and LonelyPlanet people hail the food in the place. I respect them having that opinion but don't respect their taste buds! Very average food. The only pro is the cheap sea food.
If you like to eat tasty food, lower your expectations! They barely use local spices, to make it for the western taste they think westerners like. The big a perfect king prawns had no extra taste enhancers (such as... salt, pepper, lemon).
Our mild and watery pineapple juice (though cheap) was cut with the same knife for the onion, tastes like pineapple-onion juice. Yummi?
Another worse: It is said to have internet in the place, but it didn't work when we arrived, and seems nothing was done to fix the problem (just written in other reviews here). However, the owner found a solution, sending us to use the internet at the hotel nearby.
Overall, this was the worst place we encountered in Sri Lanka, and made us leave Passikudah.
Your visit to that place, which some people call guesthouse, is at your own risk...
