Perfect location, beautiful staff. Idealic place to totally relax

2/10 Poor

Old tired hotel probably OK for back packers but they can get similar for much less money. Room was dark even with all lights on - low watt bulbs. Air-con unit would not go under 24C and was less than efficient with grills open to the outside both front and back of the room which no doubt let the mosquitos in which ate me alive. The bathroom smelt of vomit and was basic beyond belief with no hot water - just the temperature the cold had reached in the pipes outside. There were wires poking through the walls just loosely taped up; a health and safety nightmare. Booked for 6 nights stayed 1 and transferred to another hotel.

The Anstey Nomad
Great location for the beach, bars and local restaurants, staff were very friendly and helpful, room service cleaning, fresh towels,bed made and changed, this only appeared to be done only if you left the key in reception and told them you wanted your room serviced. Overall hotel appears tired and could be better if spruced up with new bed linen and towels. Always pay for hotels in advance saves arguing about fluctuations in exchange rates. No doubt I’ll be back 😎

Nice stay close to the beach
We had a lovely stay, the hotel I right next to the beach. All the rooms have a big balcony which is really nice in the morning. The people who run this place is really nice and helpful. However the hotel is not in the best condition, but it’s fine, and everything is working.

Nice hotel at the sheltered end of the beach
If you want to stay in Unawatuna, this is a great option. I stayed there 3 nights and had a lovely time. The bed was comfortable and the mosquito net a great addition, though I didn’t see many mosquitos around. The balcony was lovely and spacious with different seating options. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the breakfast delicious. The location is at the end of the stretch of beach where it is more sheltered from the waves so it is great for people who are not overly comfortable in the water. Overall, I enjoyed myself and would stay there again

Lovely stay at The Sea View
Had a lovely stay at the Sea View. The staff was very kind and attentive, the room was quite spacious and the breakfast was very good. The rooms are across the path from the beach with the restaurant right on the water. I found the beach chairs to be a bit uncomfortable and there is a large hotel going up nearby but the sound of the fan in the room drowned out any construction :) The manager went out of his way to make for a very pleasant experience.

Excellent value
I am wrapping up 15 day stay here. I am a world traveler.. an American ex pat..retired... . educated and have been around SE Asia, India OZ etc I was looking for a relaxing time... and got just what I was looking for. The manager of hotel was totally attentive to my needs. Before I arrived I called to confirm some things.. he arranged airport pickup etc. Sanjeewa is his name.. provided answers, and always followed up promptly with an email. Got off plane and driver he sent was there with my name... as it was off season and I arrived early morning, had no problem with me checking in early and told me so in email. Always nice to know you do not have to arrive, and wait some hours to get in your room (if high season might not be able to). Having manager like this was priceless... filled me in on everything I needed to know locally. He gets high marks... owner lucky to have him Breakfast provided. Fabulous fruit plate served with... coffee, toast, eggs etc and in addition a Sri Lankan dal curry served over hoppers a chapati like pancake or fine noodles. And again... staff friendly and ALWAYS greeted with a smile. Even before I gave a tip after day 4.. will tip again happily upon leaving even tough I am sure most do not. (I am originally from NYC, and we learned to tip) Wi fi worked fine.. AC as well. This is not a 5 star hotel, but for the price, considering the beach if that is what you want... perfect. I would stay here again
