Staying here again after a gap of ten years. We normally use another one quite near by but came here when that one was damaged by the tsunami. That one was unavailable this time so reverted to the Rock House and it really is excellent. As others have said it is fairly basic so if you are looking for memory...

This is where I want to be again and again. I've been there once for seven days, there is a restaurant in front of the hotels. I love everything about this hotel. A family own this hotel, they also live there but of course there is a separate living place for them. Hotel rooms are so beautiful and comfortable. We...

We stayed here as a group of 6 and got 2 rooms between us. The rooms we were were given were extremely spacious and we also got big outside areas with them on the balcony. The hotel itself is very large so i guess there are lots of different rooms hence the differing reviews but the rooms we got were...

I saw much better rooms in this place, because of group we were with (13 people). This place has 4 buildings with very different quality of rooms. Some rooms were average and...

It was a wonderful experience staying in Rock House, with very spacious rooms and bathroom which have been maintained neatly. Our stay was very peaceful and relaxing. Not far from the Jungle Beach. 5 min walk to the center of Unawatuna. It's highly recommended. We felt very homely and comfortable staying over there and would definitely go there once again...

Very elegant and clean place, hospitality of the owners is very attractive. Had been served very well. It is an unforgettable view of the Unawatuna beach from the terrace of the room we had. The honesty of the owners was amazing and had a great time in the bathing place. It was very convenient for us that the Rock House...

I visited Unawatuna 2 times in this year. Rock House is located 100 meters from the beach. It is very comfortable, because it is not noisy (impotant!). Marcus, the lord of Rock House, is honest, quite and hospitable owner. There is the green garden in the yard of guest house (monkyes live inside).
