We stay here 8 days, and like the hotel,staff and location. We eat dinner and breakfast at the hotel everyday. Its tuk tuk outside the hotel, if you want to take a trip to Galle. We miss it already, hope to come back soon.

Didn't sleep here but often came here to eat. Staff is very lovely and service oriented. Food is very good and fresh. Breakfast, lunch and dinner - all good. You might have to pre-order a seat during the high season for dinner.

The Thaproban Beach House was a perfect choice for our last beach days during our Sri Lanka holiday! The location is great, it is at the beach front more or less in the middle of the Unawatuna bay and the beach and water is perfect for swimming there. The staff was very friendly and attentive and took care of any...

Having booked on the basis of the great reviews on here, we were really excited about this place and unfortunately, I hate to say it failed to live up to the hype. Throughout our 2 night stay, we found the staff all very friendly and attentive. There was good food served in the hotel restaurant and Unawatuna was a lovely...

We stayed four days here and had a wonderful, unforgettable experience. First off, the location in Unawatuna is excellent, situated right on one of Sri Lanka's prettiest beaches with amazing, postcard views from the balcony. I would recommend booking a superior front facing room on an upper floor for the best experience. The room was large, comfortable and clean. However,...

I stayed here for one week in early March, with my husband and two daughters (1 and 4). I must agree with so many of the previous reviewers, that the staff is so genuinely friendly and helpful! Our oldest daughter loved playing around with the staff and she was at ease with them from the start, which is a really...

We recently stayed in the penthouse room and have nothing but praise for the amazing staff at this hotel. The room size was huge and perfect for a family but would advise better suited for older children. It was a bit of a minefield for our two year old due to the room being duplex with a precarious staircase to...

Fantastic start to our trip in Sri Lanka. A very warm welcome from the staff. Rooms were bright, with a nice big bed and lovely balconies. We went for the Deluxe room which had a balcony with beach view and was very airy. The restaurant on the beach in the evening, with lanterns hanging overhead was fantastic. The best spot...

What a great place this is - not because of the rooms which are fine but in need of a bit of a makeover and not because of the food which is really good (try the Sri Lankan breakfast for a special treat!), but because of the staff. The staff are simply wonderful and nothing is too much trouble for...
