Thaprobane Beach House is located on Unawatuna's main beach. It features 2 dining options and air-conditioned rooms with views of the ocean and greenery.
Score from 68 reviews Very good
Great food, excellent staff and an attitude that made you feel totally relaxed.
Shame about the beach being washed away.
Unfortunately no pool but knew that when we booked
Genral happiness of the staff and the rooms were excellent. Restaurant was very good apart from a couple of wrong meals served .
Received two wrong meals and no effort to replace and the second one he some wire in the food. Wasn't happy.
I stayed 2 nights at UBR hotel. The view is great, rooms are clean. Buffet is very good ( a bit expensive). Wifi is availaible everywhere which is quite convenient.
Pool was under renovation. Staff were supposed to help to hold our luggages, after waiting 20min, we went downstairs and learnt That staff wanted to finish their breakfast before helping us. ( at least let us Know so That we don't wait for nothing)
The location The interior design The staff The facilities
Happy hour at bar Restaurant
Wifi poor Messed some meals up Not much to do.no pool
staff was helpful value for money lunch buffet
access to beach was not good
Location- the restaurant location is too good, you can hear wave lashes while having dinner
Rooms are too small Food is average No signboards to reach the hotel
Very clean, nice hotel near Unawatuna Beach. Restaurant was very nice with direct view at the sea. Buffet was super delicious. Very friendly staff, nice big rooms.
Pool was under construction. This was the only thing missing in the hotel. I guess in about 6 months pool should be renovated.
even though this hotel was accepting AMEX payments at that time this was not accepted which was a little inconvenient and would have caused embarassment to me if I did not have any cash.
Not enough AC. Not enough TV channels. No beach or path to the beach.
Everything was superb - Will come again and highly recommended.
The hotel has a great location and is only a short bus ride to Mirissa and Galle. The food at the hotel was fantastic and the restaurant has a great view of the ocean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and had a good shower. Free wi fi in the rooms and lobby.
We visited during the off season so the pool was having a some maintenance and was out of order during our stay. Understandably maintainance should be carried out in the low season and we had no real complaints.
Restaurant service, a la carte was slow, 40 min minimum wait even when only a few people in restaurant, on 2 ocassions the meals were not what we ordered, maitre de not in control of waiters,no collaboration with kitchen. Waiter did not know difference between vegetables and salad, the most disappointing part of our stay
The beach in front of the hotel is totally inacessible which is bad because we have to walk 10 minutes to reach the beach.
Nice location near the beach.
super rooms, clean beds, towels, rooms. nice pool, lovely food,
Location of the hotel is right on the beach. Rooms are modern, clean and spacious.
We arrived at the hotel only to be told that there was no driver accommodation available. This apparently is assigned based on availability upon arrival. We had a confirmed booking and had emailed ahead of time to check on driver accommodation so surely the hotel should be aware of who is arriving with a driver and assign/advise accordingly. This was quite disappointing and caused us some inconvenience.
We were asked to pay the rooms (2 rooms, 2 nights) when we were checking in "because our booking was made at booking.com". We were charged 25$/night extra for our little daughter even though she was sleeping in our bed. After leaving the hotel we learned from our driver that the hotel had not provided him with driver accommodation (which is common in Sri Lanka) so we ended up paying him too since he had to find accommodation elsewhere. The reason was "because we made the booking through booking.com". The staff was generally very friendly and welcoming apart from one very unpleasant, arrogant, and even intimidating skinny tall guy at the reception area. The property dates from 1982 which is visible. Everything is still branded UBR even though the resort has a new name since several years.
Location - Unawatuna is one of the most beautiful beaches in SL; Staff - fantastically friendly, helpful & plenty of them; Food - excellent standard for all three meals served, big mix to suit visitors from all geographies. Local food on offer is also great (tempered from its fiery levels to suit visitor palates!)
Location and the staff
The food at best was very average.
Location and design good.
Location was good
We upgraded to a luxury suite and it was nothing but trouble. Spa worked but had some horrible smell coming from jets also no hot water for the spa when filling. We could not use it very disapointing! For some reason the toilet blocked by no fault of our own? Worst if all i was bitten by one of the stray dogs walking freely around the hotel. Needless to say a rabbies shot was next to come. When mentioned all issues Staff at reception appeared to be disinterested and handed me a complaints card to fill out? Thanks for caring Calamander. I will not be returning and i will ensure i spread the word to every person i know to stay away from this over priced budget hotel.
Very good location and rooms were superb
