Lovely little place. Just don't go on a Friday. The place next door (happy banana) had the loudest late night parties, with unnecessarily loud music, thumping bass that shakes the windows and people shouting and slamming doors. This lasts until about 4:30 am!!! Didn't sleep a wink, ruined the rest of my stay. Unfortunate really.

Friendly staff, good location

We enjoyed our stay at full moon, as the staff was friendly and its in the middle of the action at unawatuna beach.
Unfortunatly on our first night we did have a lot of noise by drunk russian tourists until very, very, deep into the night.

Nice friendly restauarant

This review only covers the restaurant as we did not stay at the hotel.
The staff here are attentive without being overly pushy and the menu is great for both snacks and meals. They provide sunbeds, on the beach, which are free of charge to residents and non-residents. They would like people who use the sunbeds to pay for them by buying drinks and/or food from the restaurant. However they do not insist! We ate here several times for lunch and found the location to be perfect with a nice breeze and lots of shade – from both trees and the very high quality beach umbrellas. With a great beach location I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Perfect location and perfect price/quality

The rooms are very charmfull, clean, spacious, quiet at night (excerpt from the wind and the sea :) and literally almost on the beach. Fantastic. The staff, reception lady and manager are very gentle and helpfull. The food is great and due to a little Italian heritage, they even have an italian espressomachine etc,..After a hectic roadtrip, we ended up staying here five days..Recommended and would come back any time..

Loved it

Fabulous girl on the front desk, great service and few steps from the beach. Lovely terrace with the view on beach, where we were having breakfast every day. The rooms are ok, but be aware of bedbugs. We couldn't sleep at night so had to use talk or apple cider vinigear. Bed bugs all around the beach in Unawatuna. We had a great deal for longer stay with breakfast included. Manager is a very decent, helpful man. We only ate breakfasts here as there are so many great assortment of local cafes on the beach to eat at and we love Sri Lankan food.

Great place

2nd time here. Great place. Rooms are basic but clean, hot water, mosquito net over bed,fan and aircon. Breakfast included in room rate was tea/coffee, fresh juice, toast Jam eggs and bacon /sausage. The main gem about this place is you step right into the beach and sunloungers. The best part .... The staff are so friendly and welcoming. Go to the beach bar .... Happy hour all day... Happy prices same as all prices it's just happy hour because everyone is happy.

Great fresh fish

We didn't stay here but did eat one evening and camara was a great host! We had the butter fish and it came with the perfect sauce, a proper salad with pineapple and perfectly salted chips with rice. Full moon has a Wonderful white light setting on the beach perfect for a romantic evening meal.

A very nice place to stay, friendly staff and still reasonable prices. Well located at the beach. The rooms are a bit older but that doesn't spoil the fun. I can recommend the place to anybody who likes a relaxed stay at Unawatana.

Poor service

I'm am sat here at the restaurant writing this review. We ordered lunch over an hour ago. There are three other tables of couple here. All arrived after us, two received food before us. We order d grilled chicken for my wife and a chicken salad for me. After 1 hour my wife's chicken arrived but they forgot my salad. Can be bothered waiting. Cancel the salad.

Full Moon is one of the places that remains loyal to the beach and to Unawatuna.

First time when I went to Sri Lanka, 4 of us, girls, we flew from Doha to the beach in Sri Lanka for a long weekend in 2012. It was late November, beginning of the season.
I found Unawatuna as one of the most beautiful golfs, a fishermen's village with a bit of touch of modernism...The beach wasn't that big, there were only 3-4 terraces on the beach, but without covering it completely, you could hear Led Zeppelin and drink Leon beer in a very chilling mood. It looked undeveloped and wild. It was a place for contemplation and yoga during the day and a nice place to walk on the beach and stop in a bar and find nice people to talk with, during night. A perfect mix& match.

I went back with the biggest desire to stay longer, and this time I took 2 weeks. 9 days out of this holiday were planned for Unawatuna. I found this place, this time, more developed, eager to become a resort full of people, eclectic and at the border of being totally different from the past. I accept, maybe I like to much wild places with less lights and lightbulbs and loud music...and will take some more years to become too modern.

Full Moon is one of the places that remains loyal to the beach and to Unawatuna. The owner grew up here, knows this place since he was a boy and he understands what is this place's heritage: peace, nature, simplicity. Is the only place which has a minimal number of tables and sunbeams on the beach, the only place where the music doesn't sound loud and where the rooms are decorated fully in a local manner...We encouraged him to stay loyal to the concept, even the tourism attracted by the other places might change his perspective...but time will prove its meaning.

Full Moon used to belong to some Italian owners,thats why the cuisine is fully influenced by this, they still serve pizza (the only place in Unawatuna, btw. The pizza is very good, but more expensive compering with other dishes and with the price of an european pizza, because mozzarella is a cheese very hard to get in a tropical country...and surpisingly they have Italian salami, very good one!), probably that is why they attract young couples with kids at lunch time.
They serve nice banana pancakes for breakfast, ask to make the slim version:-).
Good wi-fi, try to use it only for emergencies and to enjoy your staying.

We found nice people, good to talk with, open and relaxed...We even asked to change the recipe for the salads...and they adapted really fast, smiling.
This is a country where you can negotiate, people really enjoy this part and is nothing wrong about it. So, you are free to try this habit here as well, it is a natural thing to do.

If you don't find that the service is perfect or really fast, well, this place is not about Ritz performance.. at 10 dollars bill.... This country(and this place) is about negotiation, enjoying the rhythm and style. I founded charming the way they act and talk, they do their best and this is all it counts.

But this place is not for everybody, is for people with a big soul and wide eyes, ready to hug the world, to love differences and smile back.

Room Tip: The wooden bungalow with sea view is a masterpiece. Rooms on the back yard are quieter.
