Score from 39 reviews Excellent
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
Being by the sea.
I only had one night to relax at the hotel. It was my week end and I had a hard week of work in Colombo. There was a horrible loud kind of night club music as there was a private party in the public area. Did not expect this in a 4 star hotel and wished it had been mentioned somewhere. My only evening with my friends was just spoilt and no one seem to get it.
Staff are so kind & good. Hotel & room design & style is perfect for beach side. Great Location. I like everything in this hotel. Variety of food choices for breakfast. I love the juice that's been given on arrival time. Sitting area on the hotel loopy is magnificent with sound of the sea waves. There is no bugs at all in the room. Bathroom & shower area are so pleasant.
You need to know that you can't swim in the beach at all. There is no beach & it's very dangerous to go their. You only can enjoy the view. They didn't gave me a free accommodation for the driver because driver place is full. But they told me by the telephone if you book the room by the hotel which cost 133 $ (& by booking it costing 66.50$ ) . They will proved my stay with the free driver accommodation which I feel very bad. & I book for my driver a nearby hotel.
Beautiful hotel with great service and food. The staff was really helpful and we got an early check-in with out paying any extra for that. They have a lot of activities; yoga, badminton, games etc. Their breakfast buffet is very deliceous and the whole setting of the hotel is very nice.
The hotel is not really on the beach. They do have sand but there are a lot of rocks in between the sand and water. Instead of swimming in front of the hotel you have to 'walk' 5 min through the rocks to get to the actually beach.
upgraded for free. very helpful staff. full wifi coverage over the resort.
They dont have a proper beach, have to go somewhere else.
The staff was friendly and accommodating. The lady of the spa (I took a foot massage) also. Upon arrival you get a nice drink and a small, cold towel to freshen up a bit. The rooms have a nice decoration and are quite big. The shower was great. Wifi was just ok (as in: not very fast but it did exist) Swimming pool is very nice. We got a late check out at no extra cost. The beach is close by. When sitting at the breakfast table you of course see the beach, but it's too wild and too rocky here. Just ten minutes (max.) away there's a nice beach to relax and to surf. Galle fort is some 7 km's away, within easy reach of a tuk tuk for 300- 350r. Galle has a nice atmosphere and great lunch- or dining options. It looks better preserved than most places in Sri Lanka so you pay for this in ways of (more)expensive food and souvenirs. But hey, the food was great there, so no complaints here! If you leave Galle for say Colombo or Negombo, be smart and do take a (local)bus or taxi that takes the faster highway/shortcut. This can save you a lot of time. I m writing this since we did not do this obviously ;-)
The bed was nice but had some sleeping-holes in it (....?)(I mean holes or dents that heavyweight people make by just laying in the bed with their weight) (at least that would be my explanation for the 2 dents in our bed)(feel free to work your imagination on this)(...)
modern facilicity, good service,
It was a nice experience with the excellent staff. Nice restaurant and variety of food during breakfast (include the tradisional food).
Swimming Pool still under constructions.
The Food, comfort and staff make up for the disappointment that one can't step out anymore onto the beach that used to be. Still, beautifull views, tastefully decorated, extremely helpful staff, fabulous food and creative bartender. Hope very much the rates won't skyrocket and turn the place into a socalled "Boutique Hotel" once the pool is restored.
Through no fault of theirs, Unawatuna beach has washed away, leaving an ugly mass of rocks on the west side of the bay.
Great food, excellent staff and an attitude that made you feel totally relaxed.
Shame about the beach being washed away.
The bed was comfortable TV with many channels Nice shower Beach towels Breakfast The owner tried to clear up some of the bad experiences when we left
No beach outside the hotel, so have to walk on either bad and stoney path, or on a road with lots of Sri-Lankan traffic. Pool was closed. Service was bad. E.g. one day one of our beach towels was stolen at noon, and we had to pay for a new one (that is ok), but could not get a new one before 7 pm in the evening. Cleaning personel entered the room up to three times a day, also without knocking first.
