Fabulous 8.6 From 32 reviews

Very good 8.0
On the Beach - pretty well in the sea!
A very friendly small hotel located with the sea lapping at its front. Not a good beach for swimming immediately in front - you need to go 60m along the road to get a good swimming beach or a bit further to get a real broad swathe of sand. The hotel is, however, out of hearing of the noisy sections of Uwatuna beach - you are guaranteed a good night's sleep. The hotel is small, but the owner and his staff give impeccable service - nothing is too much trouble.

Lovely for a holiday by the sea
It’s a really lovely, very clean property. The staff is lovely and the manager went above and beyond to help us find a room at another hotel when we wanted to extend but were not able to stay at La Veranda because it was booked solid. The breakfast patio opens up to a private beach. We stayed in the “basic” room, which didn’t have a sea view (we knew ahead of time) but as it was partially underground it was a very cool retreat from the very hot sun. WiFi was excellent in our room, only thing I would change it a slightly larger sheet as the one provided was a bit small for two to share. Im sure if we had asked the staff would have provided either a second sheet or a larger sheet, but it wasn’t much of a problem so we didn’t say anything. :) A perfect little getaway spot. We look forward to staying again.

Amazing Views
Nice small family hotel at the end of the beach. It’s a bit away from the main beach area, but that was a positive for me. There is a small private beach in front of the hotel. Only 3-5 people I saw at any given time. The outdoor breakfast area is fantastic. It’s shaded by large palm trees overlooking the ocean with amazing sunsets. I had a sea view room. Only heard the street noise if someone honked their horn because the sound of the waves was louder than the street :). Do note that Mother Nature doesn’t observe nighttime quiet hours and the crashing waves were very loud at night. Amazing staff, very kind, service with a smile everyday. The room is tiny for the price, but neat and has traditional British colonial decor. WiFi was spotty, but that is common in Sri Lanka. 4 stars because there was a power outage for several hours. Totally, understand that things happen (I experienced outages at multiple hotels) but the owners should have the generator and gas ready to go for these instances vs. having to procure needed items during an outage. Yes, I would stay again.

The hotel was amazing, very comfortable, great view from the verandah of the sunsets. Right on the beach which was safe to swim and turtles to be seen swimming by. The breakfast was also great and the staff eager to please even helped negotiate a great fare with the Tuk Turks. Lots of good restaurants to walk to.

Loved waking up to the sea view
Had a lovely stay in this place. It has its private beach and its 5min away from the main beacj where you find a lot of restaurants. You get to wake up and eat your breakfast with the sea view. The staff is very friendly and the food in the hotel is nice. Had an amazing time.
