Sharing a Room in Sri Lanka

I have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to some pretty exotic locales and have stayed in some out of the way places, but I must share one particular hotel experience, which I will always remember. I have had my share of surprises when I travel, but this one is near the top of my list of 'why did I do that?'

It was the one night, a few weeks ago, because of a few itinerary changes; I had to change hotels. An hour before I arrived I learned it was an Eco hotel, which is something I am not big on. We arrived and checked in just before sunset and they offered two types of rooms, one was a cabana, the other a solid room. I asked to look at both.
