We loved this place! We had two nights here and revelled in the quiet informal atmosphere, good breakfasts, delicious dinners, comfortable room with sea view, a friendly manager and, most particularly, the superb swimming area in a coral lagoon a five minute walk along the beach, complete with stilt fishermen. We'd definitely come back!

Thanks to the guys at Dalawella Beach Resort. We stayed in April 2012 and we so well looked after. Its a good value for money place, with all the things you need on holiday - good food, comfortable rooms, attentive staff, beach location and wifi :). The food was always freshly prepared and great.

I would never normally write a negative review on here of a property but having just returned from SL after staying here (well, we booked for 6 days but left after 1) we felt we must share our experiences. It seems that the photos of this place on various sites such as Agoda or other booking sites are quite out...

My husband, son and myself stayed in Dallawella Beach Resort over the last Christmas break. It is an interesting property- most of the rooms were faced towards the ocean. We enjoyed the hospitality and friendly atmosphere in Dallawella Beach Resort. I would say the hotel was a good value for money we spent. I will definitely recommend the rooms in...

Its a smallish resort. The beach in front of the resort is not very nice and is full of reefs. The rooms are very big and clean but the Air conditioner wasn't working. The bathroom door was also broken. On pointing out our room was changed, but then we went in a low season. I am not sure if you...

The room of this hotel was quite good, spacious and comfortable compare to what I was expecting. The hotel is right in front of the ocean but not really a good beach in front to take a deep and have a good swim. It is rocky/corals beach with big waves though. Only limited things are provided in the room like...

I am a tour leader and this place was the first one where we stayed and they were welcoming. It was a quiet place, very secure and the experience of a sri lankan cooking class was a great time.

“There aren't many, only two floors, but all have a balcony. You need to say if you want clean sheets, towels etc. This is not the place for luxury seekers just simple and typical of the country.”
