    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.

    Beaches, turtles and whales

    ... probably 10 times a day so the next morning we were ready for the beach again. We are early risers and at 8am we were already strolling on the beach enjoying the light breeze and lack of people. What immediately caught our attention however were small marks in the sand that we identified as baby turtle tracks. We were quite disappointed to miss this happening as there were no sight of any baby turtles but later we noticed that our guy with the sea weed for the turtles collected few of ...

    This place is amazing! Main surf spot in Sri Lanka, it's just a long beach and plenty of beach side bars and rotti shops. Today was all about relaxing and sitting in the sun! At least until the evening where we met two Aussies and had a few ...

    I met an artist who had come in to commission a piece for an exhibition at NIMH... He had used art as his own therapy when going through depression and now does workshops at institutions around SL - his stuff was beautiful and I've bought some postcard versions of it. It was great to see and openness to self help and an understanding of mental health, much more like in the western world.

    ... of the windows. No monkeys on the roof just now, but you can hear something in the trees. Outside we see families of macaques active in the trees, bigger than we imagined. Later on when we're walking to jungle beach, taking a short cut with our guide we hear a louder howl of a monkey, 'gorilla?', but he's just walking on. He does pause to explain about the ant hills, and checking with our friendly host we understand that the huge mounds we've seen, do house ants, but also ...

    Today is the day that we say goodbye to all you can eat and drink buffet, warm and friendly staff and most importantly of all air con! Our family tour of Sri Lanka has come to an end and it's time for Anita and me to hit the road and start thinking for ourselves again – AAARGH!!!! How will we cope without people telling us what time to breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea time and dinner? Who’s going to mix my drinks for me and call me Sir? Who’s going ...
