Very dirty and dated. Bedding had stains and felt dirty when sleeping in it and the safe in the room didn’t work. The staff didn’t speak English so communication was difficult with the staff. Beach towels looked old and dirty.

4/10 Fair

Handun Villas is in a good location, close to the beach. This is about the only positive thing I can say about it though I’m afraid. The bathrooms are outdoors, so we had cockroaches in our shower. The bed linen was not clean, and the mosquito nets were poor, although thankfully we did not have too many mosquitos. I was surprised to see how small it was and how different it looked from the pictures. I also am a bit sceptical about some of the positive reviews for this place because there is no way it gets any more than 3 stars for cleanliness... The staff were friendly, but none of them spoke very good English so it was quite difficult to make requests or ask questions. I probably would not recommend people to stay at this place right now, but if improvements are made (like putting a proper ceiling over the bathrooms!, and doing something with the land behind the pool and not just leaving it full of burned bushes and grass), then perhaps I could change my mind.

Lovely small boutique hotel near the beach with a lovely restaurant on the beach too. Staff were lovely, gorgeous breakfast, small but clean rooms. Pool we’re beautiful and the courtyard was relaxing. A real little gem and excellent value for money. Talalla is a must much quieter then other beach towns and more beautiful!

2/10 Poor

This place was nothing like the photos, it's listed as a 5 Star but is actually 2 Star at most. The Pool was dirty couldn't be used, there were no management on site. we weren't shown around the complex., we were just shown to our small room. The worst part was refused to offer me a full refund, they only offered £78 back... I use Hotels .com for work and must spend £1000's every year..and they wouldn't even give me my money back, I'm done with We refused to stay and left within 20 mins and found somewhere else to stay.. wasted day, miss advertised, this accommodation is a complete fraud.

We had a great stay at Handun Villas. We only stayed 1 night as we were breaking up a longer journey but were very pleased with the cleanliness of the room. It had good air conditioning and a lovely outside bathroom. We were greeted on arrival with a delicious fruit smoothie and the Sri Lankan breakfast my husband had for breakfast was among his favourite on our trip so far. We ate dinner at the hotels restaurant on the beach and had a local curry and grilled calamari - both delicious. The road outside the hotel is a busy and noisy road but you can’t hear this noise when you close the doors to the villa. I would recommend!

The property has been immaculately restored. It is clean, bright, quiet, beautiful and most importantly has a warmth and charm to it that is uniquely Sri Lankan. Damien, the manager, went above and beyond to take care of me and my friend. I very much appreciated his attention to detail and timeliness...a rare commodity on the SL hospitality circuit. The food was fantastic as well! I highly recommend a stay for a few nights and I certainly would love to revisit.
