The rooms here were fine for the money, with air con, hot showers and nicely decorated. The staff were however very oddly silent, this is completely different to the rest of our experience in Sri Lanka where we found staff and locals to be very friendly and chatty. It is not to say that the staff at Forcus Cabanas were unfriendly but just they didn't speak or if they did it was so quietly that you could hardly hear them. The power kept cutting out during our stay but I think this was a town problem not just the hotel due to the winds.
Breakfast was average, toast, jam, tea or coffee, juice and choice of egg options and some fruit. We had mentioned at booking that my husband had a gluten allergy but they didn't do anything about this, when we mentioned it again at the first breakfast we was only able to have the egg option and they didn't add anything else, so one more he just had two fried eggs on a plate.

We enjoyed our stay here. AC was a welcomed treat, and everything was clean and new. The mosquitoes were a bit of a pain even with the net, but not much you can do about that. Good location and friendly staff.

Nice place, good value for money. Nice clean Cabanas with huge beds. Excellent location. On the negative side: welcome could be better and the nights are noisy (dogs, party, ...). I think the place is great but has more potential.

Thanks Ranga and the friendly team at Forcus, we stayed 5 nights and enjoyed the clean rooms, quiet gardens and breakfast area, good breakfast. Close to walk to A Bay point to surf and also close to town for food and drinks.
Awesome
