Unawatuna Beach Resort Reviews
poor hotel, great location, friendly staff Jan 07, 2010
At the end of our round trip we booked a week ‘relaxing at the beach’.
Unawatuna Beach Resort was advertised as a ‘good middle class tourist hotel’.
Arriving at the hotel we were welcomed with a drink.
At once we noticed that the maintenance of the building was very poor….. the standard rooms… the same story. Not just basic, but poor. The room was reasonable clean, accept the terrace…. to dirty to sit. Who wants to sit underneath a leaking a/c?
Mini bar in the room. And a small old television (we never turned it on).
No mosquito repellent appliance…. plenty of mosquito’s. Bathroom basic to poor (reasonable clean).
Our booking included half board. Maintenance of the restaurant was poor. The breakfast buffet was okay. The dinner buffet was average to poor. Hot dishes were mostly cold. A good thing was the grill (where food was prepared at question).
We had some a la carte lunches which were good! At fair prices. Drinks (accept wine) at fair prices too.
The hotel offers as well luxury suites. Talked to people who booked one, they were very satisfied about their room. Same thoughts about the food and the main building.
Nice pool (in front of the building with the luxury suites).
Have to say that the beach, right in front of the hotel, and the views on the bay are fantastic! See photo's at my blog (Jan. 8).
Very friendly staff.
The beach and the staff made our stay at this hotel! The hotel itself wasn’t worth staying at.
