- nice big room with sea view - clean - nice Jacuzzi - great food
- restaurant staff should be better trained
We enjoyed our stay and accessed the restaurant each evening for either buffet or a la carte. The resort is lacking a beach having been washed away after the building of a breakwater and the strong currents from the monsoon. However, good site and good for getting to places e.g. Mirissa for whale watching.
The challenge of getting to the local beach now but that isn't the fault of the hotel!
We love this Hotel, the it was our best so far while traveling around Sri Lanka. The staff were so friendly in all the areas from the restaurant, managers, bars, room maintenance, and reception. We enjoyed the dinning area overlooking the sea, with a lovely selection of food for breakfast and evening meals. There was nothing bad to say our stay here, looking forward to returning.
The Food Quality to be improved.
Good location, excellent staff and bed was big and comfortable!! Would recommend!
Generally every thing was above average
No shower enclosure was in the bath room. A shower cubicle or a shower curtain would have prevented the other area in the bath room getting wet
Very little.. the view is nice from the man made beach. The staff in the bars were very friendly. That is it really
This is a difficult hotel to review since what they say is there is not, but clearly was once a far better venue. There is no beach at all despite boasting of the best beach in Sri Lanka. The Hotel feels like a package holiday hotel. The staff were appalling on reception. I had to ask for three room changes before I got anything like what I had booked and even then was looking at the car park..! The food in the restaurant was very mediocre. After my friend observed them cooking bacon from frozen, they gave up on eating there. Even the orange juice was concentrate. This is a pretty simple thing to amend and at £175 a night it should be far better than this. The front of house staff are in short useless. I genuinely have nothing great to say about the place. Its a real shame as the place has great potential, but is let down by a very low rent service and a website that needs to be more honest of the actuals of the hotel
The scenic view from the Restaurant
The bathroom...No shower curtain and luggage has to dragged up by porters
The property was clean and close to the sea and the sea was lovely to swim in.
Very disappointed with the beach, which was non existent beside the hotel. The phots showed chairs and table on the beach, but the beach had been washed away by the tsunami. There was beach nearby, but the area is very unkept with makeshift restaurants nearby and hawkers selling their wares constantly
food is excellent, property facilities very much comfortable, nice staffs, kindly help for taxi service.
close to the beach, but rocks instead of sands. small swimming pool.
Didn't like the atmosphere. Huge noisy hotel, constructions around the pool every day (the whole day). There is no beach, just rocks and a lot of rubbish. You cannot access the water because of the sharp - full of trash - rocks, which you see basically from everywhere around the hotel. Would not book this hotel again.
Hotel itself was very clean and done to a very high standard. Location was superb and pool bar ideally situated for drinks, snacks and watching the sunset.
The majority of the sun loungers are shaded by palm tree's not ideal for sunbathing. Although there was a large selection for breakfast the quality available was not what you expect for the price of the hotel, especially if you are looking for a healthy option.
all facilities along with its location.
breakfast could have been better. They could have offered limited choice within its continental and local food selection. I think they were lost in their breakfast choice trying to please everyone. the walk to the beach could be more secure with stable pavement with some lights in the dark.
We only stayed here 1 night so can't really comment to much but it was a great hotel in a fab location and excellent value for money. Would def return.
Beautiful beach and tasty breakfast ,and the staffs in the dining room are very kind: )
1.The reception didn't arrange the rooms with windows for us,but the answer of our request on booking is "Yes". 2.Strange smell in the room.
everything... Staff were polite and really helpful. The breakfast had different choices and loved the food..Can enjoy the sea view..beach is nearby..pleasant environment.....
Great and really big room. Good restaurant. Especially grilled grab. Nice bar.
No direct passage to sand beach.
100m boulders stretch leading to he town. A local government attempt to save the beach after the tsunami, only the hotel have made no attempt to make a safe path back to the town, this really is only option to get to town. I saw several young couples carrying push chairs as they tried to navigate the rough and sharp boulders. A conctrte paths is all that is required.
the facilites and location is the best when you visited unawatuna beach resort,and the breakfast is the best meal when we taking journey in Sri Lanka,it is the best experience we had in Sri lanka and we are invited for their cocktail party which really impressed me
A/C water leaking,no HSKP attendants doing turndown services
restaurant live music
wifi view people trying to extort money by hiking up the rates of the existing guests delay in service by hotel staff
Location and food
Stunning views, extremely polite and helpful staff, gorgeous food... Absolute paradise!
WiFi in the room was hit and miss but my partner and I both agreed, that was the only issue. Besides, the WiFi in the lobby was more than sufficient. We will definitely be returning to the Calamander!
Staffs are very helpful
Located on the shore but the beach is cover by massive stones as it erodes Food is excellent, nice breakfast Beds are comfy Pool is great Free parking
Wifi is poor (going up and down) Staff is sometimes not attentive Gym machines are outdated Took a day to find my pair of socks at the laundry
