    Nice beach hotel

    We arrived in the quiet season and don't think there was anyone else staying there. The restaurant was also closed. so I can't comment on that. The rooms were large and were really nice. Mosquito net over the bed was more than adequate and for once was free of dust and holes. Good location and right on the beach. The staff are also very attentive. I would stay here again.

    Biggest, cheapest, badest, bestest rooms on the beach

    We scoured the beach, up and down for a relatively cheap A/c room, ensuite too. This place had the best sized rooms, all with four poster beds and the staff / family are really friendly, unlike a few other places nearby.

    As it is off-peak, the restaurant was closed so can't comment on the food, but the menu had the standard fare of Sri Lankan and Western. The beachfront here is also where the sea is at it's calmest, although it is about 1-2kms from town, so no ATMs nearby!

    Good stay

    We enjoyed our stay at Neelas. It is low season so it is a bit like a deserted beach but the staff were really friendly.
    Watch out for the guys giving massages on the beach. They look pretty seedy to me but I saw some girls having one which they seemed to enjoy?
    Unfortunately they didn't have curry and rice so we can't really say the food was that spectacular, next door they had string hoppers for breaky which we opted for.
    Bathrooms could do with an update and the mozzies are pretty annoying so be warned. We had to ask for a mozzie net as our room didn't have one.
    All in all, a good place to stay.

    ... into bed with anything that moves. I'm not going to say that this view isn't perpetuated by the few women that do come here and go home with a different guy every night cause it is but like home we need to overcome the “she wanted it- by her behavior” attitude. Men here like most in Asian nations cannot handle their alcohol and are so sexually repressed that they behave in substantially inappropriate ways. As a foreign woman you ...

    Borscht and Curry

    ... The curry sauces are hot and spiced with cardomom, clove, garlic, curry leaves and god knows what else, and all taste incredible. Meals so good you never want to finish them, and all rounded of with small glass dishes of silky buffolo curd laced with honey the colour of mahogany.

    The other thing you can't fail to notice around here is the upcoming general election. As soon as you leave the airport, you notice entire house walls, and practically every ...

    Rachel's summary: Phew! What an incredible few days it's been since we left Colombo where we spent a few nights recovering from our speedy tour of this rich land, or resplendent island to give it's correct translation. We've been whisked from here to there by Ashoka and now the Archbolds have taken over as we spend our last few days in Sri Lanka enjoying their company and celebrating Helen's engagement to Dennis. Yes, he is Sri ...

    ... before, this is a Buddhist thing that I learned many years ago in Nepal. I fully understand that this is not a religious site, indeed it is apparently 80% Muslim, but I just have a natural inclination now to go that way. It is odd as that formed no part of my religious instruction in the Christian church (which I no longer subscribe to) and certainly was not a cultural thing where I grew up, but I still do it. Indeed, in Sri Lanka, I have noticed local people walking happily ...

    Drunk and disorderly!

    Our night at the YMCA was hilarious! As soon as we entered we were ushered to three seats and we shared our table with a guy from India. He took a quick liking to Jenna and was soon sharing his bottle of white wine with her (despite our best efforts, she is still not drinking beer!) he affectionately named her 'tomato', then went on to call George 'cucumber' and I was called 'chicken leg'!!! I think it is fair to say he was pretty drunk! He even offered us ...
