I should have looked online and read the reviews before booking this place! What an absolute joke! It's so grubby, and dirty, feels like it's about to crumble to pieces all around you and is somehow surviving. After seeing the rooms, I could see why they wanted payment upfront. There were 3 of us staying, so we were given a quadruple room. One bathroom to share, one double up the steps in the open loft area and two single beds in front of the bathroom, one under the staircase, the other in front of the door. There were water marks all over the wall between the bathroom and the bedroom. The wooden floors were so thin there were holes in the ground in some places and you could see the ground underneath. There was a spider crawling on the bed already when we came in. The bathroom was filthy, with an awful mouldy shower curtain, dusty broken fixtures, grubby tiles..the place looked like it hadn't seen a cleaning agent for years! As we were only staying one night, we decided to just grin and bear, and went out for lunch. We had food in their cafe, which was ok, overlooking the sea. I was surprised that there was an opening on the balcony with a sheer drop into the rocks and sea below, and was wondering what it was used for. Later I discovered that there should have been a beach there! And the opening must have once had steps leading down to it. How very sad.
Later is started raining so we had to retreat into our rooms, and only then started realising what a dump it was..There were cockroaches in the bathroom, and lizards running around everywhere! We decided to use the public toilet outside, which was surprisingly the cleanest bit of this 'resort'. We had to call in the reception man to sort out the cockroaches, and he just sprayed them and picked them up with a tissue, acting like we've bothered him greatly for no reason! He was sleeping on the tables we'd been eating at the previous morning.
We decided to forgo showering that night because we couldn't face the prospect of more cockroaches, and just got into bed and tucked ourselves into our nets waiting for the morning so we could leave. Then things got worse. At night there was a storm, and I was woken up by the building shaking. It was swaying from side to side in the wind, and for a terrifying few hours in the middle of the night I thought the place was going to collapse..I was frantically trying to work out the direction of the sea and what the chances were of us being washed out into it. I managed to fall back asleep, only to be woken up by next door neighbours coming in and turning on their lights, which shone right into our room through the gap between the wall and the roof.. We were finally woken up by a lot of shouting going on outside, which following the night's events my exhausted brain interpreted as an alarm to evacuate! Suffice to say I was wide awake in no time, and was relieved to see the sun was coming up and we were all still alive with the building in one piece.
We couldn't leave soon enough.
We had a really nice stay on Unawatuna. The staff was helpful and always in a good mood. The breakfast was a decent value they had hot shower, nothing fancy, but all in good taste and right on the beach. They are located on this stretch of the beach that has some rocks so it was a very pretty view from the balcony, and just a couple of meters from the good swimming spots.
Also their bar had the best music on the whole beach. No techno eletronic whatever. They where always playing some oldies, reggae and nice beach songs. Great place to relax right in the middle of the beach.
Yes!!! OK there is no longer a beach within spitting distance Doh!!!, however, there is a lovely beach within a stone's throw. The local Government in their wisdom constructed a sea barrage without thorough research on the impact to the landscape or local business. I stay at this hotel regular and it requires vision and imagination, this hotel is for a more adventuerous traveller who is not seeking a 4 star rating. Yes it is basic, but it is the experience and atmosphere of the local area, the sound of the water lapping on the shore, the hot sun, interesting people.
The staff are very helpful and the food is satisfactory, the beds are comfortable and the hotel location is near plenty of shops. I would not like to see the beach front looking like Benidorm because tourists are too fussy. "Its and adventure" a chance of a lifetime for some, tourists often overlook the poverty of such countries and how the locals live.
There are a few top hotels in the vicinity, which cost more, much more, as long as I have a bed, food, sun and alcohol I'm happy.
The Hotel is Ok
Do not expect too much, Rooms are quite small
Position is Ok in the village center but there is no more beach in Front of the Hotel
So do not expect to wake up and relax in front of your room....
Web site pics don't reflect the reality!!!!
Restaurant is Ok a little bit pricey
I stayed at this resort during the first week of October 2013. My friends had stayed here back in August 2013 and recommended the Full Moon Resort to me. However, my experience during my October stay is vastly different from my friends!
Firstly, they had a nice time basking at the beach right in front of the resort. When I was there, THERE WAS NO BEACH! The beach has been eroded by the sea, it's gone totally missing in front of this resort and now the sea crashes into the front wall of the resort each hour of the day.
Since the beach has been eroded, all the resorts suntanning chairs, beach loungers, umbrellas, were all stored away and can't be used.
If you want to relax at the beach, you have to leave the resort by the front entrance and walk to the neighboring resort's beaches.
The crashing waves were very loud and it disturbed me from my sleep, and my room was not even facing the sea!
Speaking of room, the shower curtain in my room was mildewed and had grimes on the edges. When I was showering, I had to be extra careful not to let the shower curtain touch me. Oh, I stayed there for 3 nights and they didn't even replenish my little bar of soap. By the morning of day 3, my bath soap was reduced to the size of a pencil eraser! Laugh you may, but I had to endure that. (Well, I blame myself for not calling Housekeeping to ask for a new bar, but isn't Housekeeping supposed to replenish your little bar of soap daily without being asked?)
Speaking of housekeeping, they also failed to make up the bed for the entire 3 days that I was there. That is despite me NOT hanging out the "Do Not Disturb" sign.
At the restaurant, the sea-sprays from the crashing waves entered the dining area, and kept the area wet. A quarter of all the chairs and tables in the dining area were unable to be used for they were too wet by the ocean-spray.
The owner showed me a large picture of the beach that the resort had back in August. It was indeed beautiful. Unfortunately, the resort is now a full-on victim of sea erosion, and guests would not have an enjoyable time here anytime.
Eat here on a regular basis as it is so good, carbonara, spaghetti al pomodor, steaks. Hearty large servings of great pasta. Mixed salad couple of cold beers makes for a good meal with good service located right next to the beach friendly service, consistent quality food.
If you love your seafood and want to be right on the beach there isn't much closer than these little bungalows. I was in Room No1 and this was absolutely right on the water, Ranga the experienced chef asked me at breakfast what I would like for dinner that night and I would say Lobster, crabs, and in the afternoon he would come over with the fresh live lobster and get me to pick out what I wanted, he would also bring the hugest prawns you have ever seen and show you all the fresh seafood caught that day, the beach out in front and all the staff would go out of there way to be helpful, Harris was our absolutely wonderful waiter who worked breakfast through to dinner always helping, and getting me drinks or ice, loved Sri Lanka loved Full Moon Resort and what a way to cap of our fantastic honeymoon will be back that's for sure.

Really nice little hotel right on the beach, rooms are nice, clean and good service. Only downfall is there is a huge amount of noise from party goers on the beach at night, well into the early hours, playing very loud music. But over all a lovely resort and good value for money.
As a group of students on a medical elective in Sri Lanka we are naturally keen to have a great time on our weekend travels but for a reasonable price, this was just the answer! The location is stunning, literally being three paces from room to sand. The staff are extremely friendly and approachable and will do everything they can to help whatever time of day.
Whilst staying we encountered a problem with our room (a fuse or similar went causing a lack of electricity to the bathroom), after reporting it we were moved within ten minutes - great service. Food is also excellent and for a reasonable price. The beach has a thriving nightlife so may not be ideal for people looking for an early night - however sleeping in the sun is fun anyhow!
We enjoyed a great 4 day stay at the Full Moon Resort in early june and often chose to eat here in the evenings due to the very friendly staff and good food. There is a great bar attached run by Raj, who was extremely kind, making special cocktails for me on my birthday and giving us great service. A great beach resort to relax in.
