      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.

      ... seen such small dorados and small tunas I felt very sad.

      As the days in Sri Lanka were coming to the end of this amazing trip we were bit hungry for some activities and new adventures and tomorrow we are off to Malaysia.

      Must see: whales watching, turtle farm, Kannnelyia rain forest

      Things to bring: panty liners - it is very hard to find them, tampons - mission impossible in Hikkaduwa, good suns ...

      ... took the scenic train ride about 45 minutes south. First stop was the lighthouse which is on the southern most point of Sri Lanka. Really beautiful beach. There was a clear inlet with little waves where the kids were surfing on big squares of cardboard left by the fishermen. From there the 3 of us piled in the tuk tuk and headed to the temple that has one of the biggest Buddhas in the country. The tour started with a maze of underground walkway lines with painting of the ...

      ... was a bit better and made it out in the afternoon to have a look around. We went to a market that is popular in Mumbai, there was a lot of fresh fruit, veg and meat, we saw fresh chicken for sale but was just on a warm side with flies all over it which makes you realise why you have to be careful where you eat! The next day we both felt better and wanted to make the most of the day, some things were closed due to a navy patrol but we got a real deal on ...

      ... that I would wish for, that little torch was not going to help with, oh I don't know, getting a shower for example. Right, let's think, I thought. My mother has always encouraged me to do that by saying: "thinking has a future, my son" every time I started the sentence from "I was thinking…". Contacting the main guest house was my top priority. I felt like if I was in the middle of military training exercises and I had to contact "the base". Mayday, mayday, all systems ...
