Our stay may be summed up in tre words: staff, service, location.
Kingfisher in itself is and could have been the perfect place to stay in Unawatuna. The room is nice (not taking into account the peculiarity that there was no door between the room and the bathroom, a neighbour standing close to our veranda could actually see into the shower if they took a look into the room, which they didn't and anyway we didn't bother), the veranda even better, but there is a but: music. Music from neighbours playing into the small hours. Most nights we managed to overhear it, but some nights it was Impossible. The staff was all of them very nice, friendly, attentive, serviceminded. Still I would like to mention Ranjith, who took care of our room, and made sure we had sunbeds every day, even if we were late out. He responded immediately to all our requests, always with a smile. To the management, make sure you keep him. The wi-fi ws a problem, most of the time we had to go to reception. They tried to change the company delivering the wi-fi, but that didn't help. As for Unawatuna beach, I am more divided. I love to swim, but with the boats going back and forth all the time, trying to catch customers ( and sending out stinking petrol fumes), I was afraid to swim. There is some waves, but not to bad. I recommend tuk tuk-driver D. Prosanna (had a dark pink tuk tuk). Reliable, nice and spoke quite good english.
