Charm and Character
Morganity... [TA], , Newcastle

We stayed for 3 nights. Greeted by 2 lovely boys who made us a delicious welcome drink. They gave us information about the surrounding area. The service they gave us was fantastic. They even gave us fresh aloe for our bites. Pool area good. Rooms clean and comfortable. This guest house is full of charm and character in a really beautiful setting . Close to beach and lots of bars and places to eat. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful experience
Elise M [TA], , Paris, France

We had an amazing time at this guesthouse. Rooms are clean, people working there very very nice and welcoming. Feeling like home. The manager could be a little bit nicer, but the swimming pool is helping to forget ;) Best place to stay at if you go to Unawatuna

A very nice place to relax. Friendly and smiling staff.
Isawaro [TA], , Madrid, Spain

A lot of smart details: rooms with elegant decorations, flowers on the table of our private terrace, marvellous tropical garden, fresh fruit juice as a welcoming drink, staff lighting the antimosquitos spiral on your terrace, real cleaning up of the swimming pool, very friendly guys working at the bar and kitchen, it's a very enjoyable place, and I would recommend it if you're willing to relax at the end if your journey. Bus stop is nearby, so if you like to spend some hours in Galle Fort, you'll do it very easily.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the second floor. Nicest views to the sea.

We arrived back home today from a three week stay in Sri Lanka. We stayed two weeks at Black Beauty Guesthouse and we liked it really much.
The staff is nice and helpful, especially Samir who helped us to arrange various activities and transports.
The surroundings are beautiful, you get the feeling you are living in the jungle. The guesthouse is a little off from the main Unawatuna beach, but we liked that, because it's more quiet. You must cross the main road to get to the beach, and that's a pity because the traffic is kind of wild. But that is hardly Black Beauty's fault...
Don't walk along the main road, instead you should walk along the beach, it's a shorter distance and a lot nicer. If you don't want to walk, take a tuk-tuk down to the beach and restaurants.
You eat your breakfast at the top floor, and from there you have a fantastic ocean view.
We never suspected to spot as many animals as we did: big and small lizards everywhere, monkeys jumping in the palm trees, even saw a couple of mungos and parrots.
The pool is small but fresh and clean. It is partly in the shadow, which can be nice sometimes.
Thank you from Lexelius family!

Quiet location, well appointed
Peter H [TA], , Woodend, Australia

We checked in as a family of 6. Black Beauty is way from the resorts but still well located in terms of self food and drink supplies.
It offers a simple menu from the roof top restaurant, has a nice pool and friendly staff.

Nice place!
laurence... [TA], , Stroud, United Kingdom

I liked it here, our room was pretty good and the Sri Lankan breakfast was tasty. It's in the perfect place just apposite and quiet stretch of beach and only a 15 minute walk away from the main drag. My wife loved the pool and I found the whole place tranquil and relaxing. A great place for chilling out and reading a book.

Clean and cozy guesthouse in a paradise garden
Helenafro... [TA], , Prague, Czech Republic

The Black Beauty guesthouse is a great option for those who want to enjoy the beaches of the South-West of Sri Lanka. Located in Unawatuna but outside of the main too-touristy core of the resort, it is located merely 30 meters from a smaller beach, which offers clean sea with easy access and a bit of authentic taste, at the difference of the main Una beach, which is a bit too globalised - it could be anywhere in Mallorca, the Canary Islands, or else. Jungle beach, the local greek-style beach is at 5 mins by tuk-tuk. The beautiful beach of Mirissa is some 30 minutes by bus. Galle, a beautiful picturesque Unesco town is 10 mins away by tuk-tuk.
If you love animals, you will be amazed every morning at breakfast, as you will be able to watch a great variety of birds, lots of chipmunks, smaller models of varans and monkeys having good time in the beautiful and neatly maintained garden with banana trees, coconut palmtrees, mango, papaya trees, orchids, jasmin, oleanders and lots more.
The service at Black Beauty is impeccable. A crew of local English-speaking employees is always there to help with anything, and always with a smile on their face. They are at the heart of success of the guesthouse. Our room was simple but clean, the beds were reasonably comfy for the local standards. Every room has a terrace or a balcony with a table and armchairs, much appreciated for an evening chillout.
Black Beauty is definitely a great address for travellers on budget who are not expecting great luxury but require cleanliness, good services and friendly atmosphere.

My daughter hasn't stopped asking when we will go back to Black Beauty
Steve G [TA], , Shanghai, China

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Sri Lanka, during which time, we stayed at the Paradise Beach hotel in Negombo, Hilton Residence in Colombo and Black Beauty in Unawatuna. But it is our time at Black Beauty that the whole family enjoyed the most and will remember for a long time.
This place is great for kids - the gardens are wonderful and totally enclosed, there is a small play area with a swing and a slide, the pool is small but very nice (no separate baby pool, so parent supervision is required for younger kids) and whole area is full of wildlife (Monkeys, Squirrels, Frogs, Birds etc.). The kids loved having breakfast in the 3rd floor restaurant, so that they could watch all the animals.
The staff were very friendly and provided great service, even providing toys for our kids to play with while in the pool or gardens.
The rooms are basic, but comfortable. The restaurant has a limited menu, but what we did eat there was freshly prepared and tasty. The "English Breakfast" was certainly the highlight, with a great fruit plate, some egg and lots of toast which was always good.
There are some issues you need to know - The property is set back from the beach and some 10 - 15 minutes walk from main beach / restaurant / bar area. You also need to cross a busy road, which is a little intimidating the first time. However, there are plenty of Tuk Tuks that will be happy to take you to the village center for about 150 Rupia (US$1.20). Also, they provide a full room cleaning service every 3 days and you need to give the staff the room key each time you want the room cleaned. Additional toiletries and towels were provided as requested (outside normal cleaning days).
There is a liquor store (turn left and walk 20m along main road) and small supermarket (Turn right and walk 60m along main road) very close by.
All in all Black Beauty is a great place to stay, with wonderful staff and great value for money. We will certainly return.

Perfect Place To Stay
Hendrik S [TA], , Hamburg, Germany

This guesthouse is a fantastic place to stay and relax.
The place is beautiful, quiet, relaxed and exceptionally friendly.
The pool is always good for a refreshment, chairs and umbrella right at the
beach are provided. The rooms are nice, with good beds and a cabinet which
is lockable. Food is delicious and reasonybly priced, its great to have dinner here
on your own balcony !
The staff is ALWAYS helpful in any way, and their sincere smile keeps you always in
a good atmosphere.
We can only recommend the Black Beauty highly !

Nice pool, good location, comfortable rooms
[TA], ,

Lovely hotel in a peaceful area within a walking distance from the Unawatuna "center". Nice and clean pool, comfortable rooms. This place can be recommended for a longer stay as well, although the rooms could be cleaned more often. The friendly staff was also super helpful with our further traveling arrangements and organized transportations, guides etc.
