The place is perfect for backpackers who want a payable hotel with a pool (especially recommended in the off season when the beach is dirty). Most of the rooms have just been renovated and are really nice and clean. The resort has been family owned for over 30 years. The only exception negative point is that the pool seems dirty,...

Such a nice hotel and the perfect distance from the beach and a short walk to the restaurants. An ideal place to go as it has a pool so great if the see is too rough, great place to relax after a day out on the beach

When you are traveling all around Sri Lanka it's great to find a place like this. Here you have peace and quiet because the place is just enough away from the kaos which is rulling on the streets. They have nice, clean rooms. They have their own pool where you can just relax. Very nice stuff.

I had such a relaxing stay here. The staff were lovely, the room was good, the pool was amazing! Huge and had it to myself. Short stroll from the beach, train and restaurants. Great place to lie in the sun for a few days, and really reasonably priced. Very tranquil and a sweet pet dog to play with. There were...

This hotel has a lovely pool. It's like getting into a bath. Couple of loungers and chairs around to use. Rooms were typical Sri Lankan budget guesthouse style. Showers are hot and the place is clean (as clean as these older places can get anyway). Breakfast wasn't included in the price and this hotel was expensive compared to the neighbours,...

For the price this place is fantastic! The rooms are clean and the air con is amazing, it was a great place to escape the heat for a while. I spent my nights cooling off in the pool. There was a line to hang out my swimmers which was a bonus. The staff are helpful and friendly and I enjoyed...

A fantastic place to stay. Peace and quiet while only a 5 minute downhill walk to the beach! The pool at the end of the day was just incredible. The room was spacious with a nice balcony. Wifi worked very well in the common areas but did not reach the room. Run by friendly people, always wth a smile on...

One of the best places I stayed in Sri Lankan tour. Family owned place, so atmosphere is very warm and you can leave your valuables safe in their hands while you go snorkeling on the beach. They have owned the place for 40 years I think. Swimming pool is also nice.
