Excellent four night stay
Vtavvy1 [TA], ,

We had a great four night stay towards the end of the season.

The staff were all fantastic - great personalities and great service (particularly when my camera broke and they gave us a bag of rice to salvage it, and when I got attacked by caterpillars on a sunbed on another part of the beach!)

The rooms are spacious, clean and the beds are very comfortable. It is also great being so close to the beach.

Would recommend a stay at the thaproban beach house to anyone travelling to unawatuna.

Friendly staff and good service

We stayed several times in this hotel ,which we appreciate very much, for its location, friendly staff and good catering. All the staff members satisfied our wishes ,when we requested special dishes. We recommand in particular Indu, a very friendly guy, always keen of satisfying his clients. Nuwani was always there to give us good advises when we needed. Thanks to everybody !

Beautiful hotel

We stayed 4 nights with our children at Thaproban Beach House. The beautiful hotel is located right on the beach. The staff is very, very friendly and helpfull. The seafood market in the evening is excellent. We specially say many thanks to our waiter Indu´nil. We would definitely recommand Thaproban Beach House.

"Perfect destination for beach holiday…."

Amazing place in front of the unawatuna bay. Many tourists and many facilities on the beach. The hotel is very nice and nicely decorated. Room is really good with all facilities for a relaxation. Just few steps to the beach. On the beach restaurant is with good DJ music at night. Excellent fresh seafood display, everyday as your choice. You must taste the delicious food there. Much appreciate all the staff doing their job with smile at a very rush and busy time too. I show they are happy and enjoy their job when the restaurant is over crowed without fear and fed up. Great cocktails in the area. Nice beach, nice people, nice place, nice food. What else you need….i had a great time there.

Fantastic hotel on a not so fantastic beach
Christie... [TA], , Melbourne, Australia

We (family of 2 adults and 2 young children) stayed at Thaproban Beach House for two nights in early April. We stayed in the penthouse (room 11), which enjoys that spectacular view you see in all the marketing photos.

Check in - Excellent, Nuwani was extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. The entire check in process was completed in just a few minutes and we enjoyed a welcome drink before being escorted to our room.

Room - Nicely decorated, the balcony and the view are beautiful. Bear in mind the balcony is shared with the room next door (there is a small screen partially dividing the balcony space). The AC worked well and the beds were comfortable. I must point out that the stairs up to the second bedroom are extremely steep and narrow. Not so much a problem on the way up, but walking down them is treacherous and you find yourself having to side step. This isn’t ideal when carrying a toddler and we certainly didn’t allow the kids to tackle the stairs by themselves.

The bathroom was well equipped but there was quite a bit of mould in the shower. All in all though, a lovely room.

Breakfast - The breakfast each day was lovely and offered a good variety. Note that if you wish to order Sri Lankan breakfast you need to place the order the night before.

Restaurant - We enjoyed quite a few meals in the restaurant and all were excellent. While the menu isn’t huge, the food is excellent and well priced. Nice cocktails too!

Location - Well located right on Unawatuna Beach. If you choose not to eat at the hotel, there are loads of restaurants and bars just steps away.

Beach - It is worth noting that the water at Unawatuna can be quite challenging, with a strong current. We saw a number of people pulled under at various times. It meant that we weren’t able to swim in the water with our kids, which was disappointing. The sand is also very rough as a result of the dredging which was conducted in recent years. It makes it quite uncomfortable underfoot and it is difficult to get a good footing when in the water as the sand sinks beneath you. This is such a shame as it diminishes what I understand was once a beautiful swimming beach.

Staff - It’s the staff at Thaproban that really make this place special. On the first day they knew both our children by name and all made a point of greeting them, high fiving them etc. whenever they saw them. Our five year old son became quite the local celebrity! The service provided by the staff was truly excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Thaproban Beach House and would definitely recommend the hotel. However I wouldn’t return to Unawatuna if my intention was to swim in the ocean. There are much better beaches in the vicinity of Unawatuna.

Room Tip: #11 (penthouse) is great but not for anyone who might have trouble climbing the stairs. Not an issue...

Henrik P [TA], ,

Stayed for 11 nights in March.
Nice and very clean rooms. The location is excellent on the beach and close to restaurants and bars.
Good breakfast.
But the best thing about this hotel is the staff. They are all so friendly and helpful and you are always met with a big smile.

The friendly place!!

The Friendly Thaproban Beach House!

We stayed here for 11 nights in March 2016 and had a great time!
Hotel is situated in the middle of Unawatuna Beach, just a few steps to the waterline.
Standard rooms are kept neat and tidy with comfortable beds, air con and fan working and minibar always refilled.
Breakfast served by table, just sit down and relax.
This hotel has an amazing staff, doing their outmost to serve you with smiling faces and a good sense of humour!
This is including the entire crew; drivers, reception, housekeeping and our best friends, the waiters, thanks for everything!
Keep it up!
I will gladly recommend this hotel!

no particular climat
AlexaKPL [TA], , Wroclaw, Poland

Big, clean room with air condition and big nice and fully equipped bathroom. Bads to high. Unfortunatelly, it is noisy from the morning till the late night from reception, restaurant or street (ear plugs do not helped). Unquestionsable adventage is the air condition and location in the middle of the bay on the beautiful, sundy beach. At night it there are lights from beach restaurant and torps. You may stay in decks till midnight atching the stars. Good one night. Recommend to walk on city and jungle beach and another behind. Poor breakfast.

Room Tip: take one with seaview

Lovely hotel & fab restaurant
Sophie L [TA], , London, United Kingdom

My fiancee and I stayed at Thaproban Beach House for 4 nights in March 2016. It is a lovely hotel - really welcoming and helpful staff, our sea view room was lovely, and the food in the restaurant was absolutely great - would definitely recommend staying here and order the typical 'rice and curry' dish on the menu - you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: sea view room - great view

Great restaurant
Tademero [TA], , Norway

We stayed at another beach house, but came to Thaproban most evenings for our dinner. The food was great and the staff generally very friendly. We would like to send a special "Thank You" to the waiter Indu, who took really good care of us. He catered to our every need, and made sure my wife had safe allergy friendly meals. He was one of the main reasons we kept coming back.
