8.0 Excellent
Pros: As we were traveling on our honeymoon, of course we didn’t mention it online as we are also here for national reserve animal study... Due to a reason the management made it full board for us. And they made our holiday a great experience.
Cons: Calling me 2 hours before arrival to say that our rooms are not confirmed as I called one day before and they mentioned nothing. Don’t do that.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The pool, the food and the staff were great.
Cons: We couldn't stay longer.
7.0 Good
Pros: Perfect steaks in the restaurant.
Cons: There was no mosquito net above the bed... So it was a little uncomfortable to sleep when behind the door to bathroom are gigant cockroaches an other insects...
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great location, directly on a lovely beach.
Cons: The room was a bit dark and humid.
6.0 Good
Pros: The location and hotel itself was lovely. We did provide feedback to the hotel and they gave us a bottle of wine by way of apology but we have been to all the Uga resorts and this was not to the same standard.
Cons: Service was slow at the restaurant. The beach bar was closed even though everyday you are handed a note telling you that there is 25% off drinks at Happy Hour at the beach bar! Cocktails were not great for the prices and food was a bit tasteless and not worth the price.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Excellent staff, good food and cocktails
Cons: Massive problem with Ocean plastics being washed up on the beach (not their fault), but even great problem with being able (willing?) to clean it up. Plastics come up twice a day with high tide, all they needed was a concerted effort for 2 hours or so after to collect. On our first day no one collected and it was shocking, so so sad- like a landfill site on a would be beautiful beach. They claimed not enough staff to pick up which is so unacceptable in a country of low cost labour where 2% of our nightly room fee alone- not counting anyone elses- would have been all it took to hire someone to clean up (high prices I suppose as we were staying just after new year). Really hypocritically there were cards on the bed saying save the planet by not washing your towels, and signs on the beach saying how much they do on cleaning up the beach. Walking down the beach, seeing birds and cows pick through the garbage was heartbreaking, you can’t imagine how many bottles collected there. On the plus side, I will always avoid single use plastics forever now- first time I experienced it in person. Unacceptable to be charging 5* rates and custodians of a beautiful stretch of sand and not investing in this when it’s such a tiny fragment on in takings. So we complained (which I hate doing), they offered us 100usd off the room price for first night- we said no need but please but the money towards getting it really clean for the rest of our stay (and going forwards)... Needless to say, they did not. Day 2 they cleaned up the 7am dump with 2 people only over 4 hrs. Not the evening plastic dump. Came and asked for praise, we offered to take them for a walk and show them all the plastic still around. Day 3 they apparently did their monthly sweep of a larger stretch of the beach.

6.7 Good
Pros: Our rooms were comfortable and we had everything we needed, but the design is uninspiring and lacks character. Food in the main restaurant was delicious, especially breakfast which had a good variety of Sri Lankan and European options. The beach bar was useful traveling with children, if we didn’t want to wait till 7:30pm for the buffet to open.

Pros: The buffet was well run and had a decent amount of options. The service at the restaurants were great and the staff are really friendly. The room views and access were very convenient.

Pros: Upon arrival, we received an upgrade to a suite for a small increase of the room rate, as it was off-season.

All the staff was always very friendly and helpful; the manager Sri gave us plenty of great advices for our travels.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved the relaxing vibe at Nilaveli Beach Hotel. It was beautiful and serene, thoughtfully designed in keeping with its natural surrounding and run by the loveliest, most attentive staff who were had an excellent knowledge of the local and surrounding areas and provided really useful guidance on everything from tourist attractions to onward travel options. The breakfast was outstanding. Really beautiful Sri Lankan curries and condiments and an excellent selection of the freshest fruit. There was also a good spread of western breakfast options as well. Lunch and dinner were just as great -- you must try the crab curry, it is to die for. The hotel is right on a lovely, long stretch of coastline, perfect for walking, taking photographs and just generally marveling at the gorgeous location. There were more active options as well, but we were there to slow down and enjoy the coastline.
7.9 Good
Pros: The pool and food were amazing. The location the beach perfect. It was low season so i took a chance and it was indeed dead. Imagine the vibe is ok there. The staff seemed nice though. Just avoid at all costs the budget rooms.
Cons: I knew i booked a budget room but wasn't prepared for how bad the fan only was. The room was so big so it made no impact. I tried to find someone on the '24hr reception' desk but noone around. Eventually the security guard got someone and they did change me to an AC room in the middle of the night. I have stayed in fan rooms before but this was unbearable, a lesson learnt for me. The wifi only in a very uncomfortable lobby, forna 3 star thats not great.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: nice beach, clean hotel, around not to shabby
Cons: the basic room does not have hot water or aircon .... check your room details thoroughly, its not such a good deal if you cant have a warm shower in the morning

Cons: Service was slow at the restaurant. The beach bar was closed even though everyday you are handed a note telling you that there is 25% off drinks at Happy Hour at the beach bar! Cocktails were not great for the prices and food was a bit tasteless and not worth the price.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Excellent staff, good food and cocktails
Cons: Massive problem with Ocean plastics being washed up on the beach (not their fault), but even great problem with being able (willing?) to clean it up. Plastics come up twice a day with high tide, all they needed was a concerted effort for 2 hours or so after to collect. On our first day no one collected and it was shocking, so so sad- like a landfill site on a would be beautiful beach. They claimed not enough staff to pick up which is so unacceptable in a country of low cost labour where 2% of our nightly room fee alone- not counting anyone elses- would have been all it took to hire someone to clean up (high prices I suppose as we were staying just after new year). Really hypocritically there were cards on the bed saying save the planet by not washing your towels, and signs on the beach saying how much they do on cleaning up the beach. Walking down the beach, seeing birds and cows pick through the garbage was heartbreaking, you can’t imagine how many bottles collected there. On the plus side, I will always avoid single use plastics forever now- first time I experienced it in person. Unacceptable to be charging 5* rates and custodians of a beautiful stretch of sand and not investing in this when it’s such a tiny fragment on in takings. So we complained (which I hate doing), they offered us 100usd off the room price for first night- we said no need but please but the money towards getting it really clean for the rest of our stay (and going forwards)... Needless to say, they did not. Day 2 they cleaned up the 7am dump with 2 people only over 4 hrs. Not the evening plastic dump. Came and asked for praise, we offered to take them for a walk and show them all the plastic still around. Day 3 they apparently did their monthly sweep of a larger stretch of the beach.

6.7 Good
Pros: Our rooms were comfortable and we had everything we needed, but the design is uninspiring and lacks character. Food in the main restaurant was delicious, especially breakfast which had a good variety of Sri Lankan and European options. The beach bar was useful traveling with children, if we didn’t want to wait till 7:30pm for the buffet to open.
Cons: The lobby and bar are functional but not places you want to hang out. Visiting in low season meant not all services were on offer.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing hospitality. Awesome location. Great amenities. Wide range of food offered in breakfast and dinner buffets.
Cons: Not a lot of places to eat outside during the off season. Coffee is served in pots, not made to order. Action station made hoppers wasn't tasty.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The buffet was well run and had a decent amount of options. The service at the restaurants were great and the staff are really friendly. The room views and access were very convenient.
Cons: I booked a room for triple occupancy and felt like the room was rather small for three people. It would have been good if a larger room was provided specially as we spent two nights there.
