The beach at the hotel is too wavy to swim and can only bask in the sun. But not far away, there is another public beach more than 100 meters, where you can swim. There are many choices for buffet breakfast and dinner, and the taste is good. Of course, there are occasional mistakes, such as grilled too raw beef shoulder. There are very few things for children to entertain. There is a game room where you can draw, watch TV, play games, etc., but the maintenance is not very good. The service is generally good, ushered in. However, there are more ingredients for the show, and some details need attention. Overall, the price / performance ratio is average, and it should be done.

We stayed here for two nights keen to enjoy some beach time after touring inland. We stayed in a first floor villa with a balcony overlooking the beautiful grounds. Each morning we were woken by curt banging on the glass door which turned out to be the local pair of grey hornbills fighting their reflection! Great time on the beach but rough sea made swimming challenging/inadvisable and no lifeguard, There was a good sized pool. WE tended to patronise the Pavilion restaurant by the pool. The food was delicious. All the staff were efficient and friendly. We highly recommend this place.

We booked 1 night but ended up staying 4. Breakfast is huge and buffet style with daily additions like pakora, noodles or dhal by the nice lady who also cleans around. At the breakfast table you can enjoy the lush nature around and cute chipmunks hopping around the palm trees. Definitely a great value for money. Host and family are very kind and helpful. While there check out cactus restaurant at the beach: best prawns with chips and salad we had in a loooong while! (200Rs by Tuk tuk) Only drawback: the towels at this place, like in many other guest houses we stayed in Sri Lanka, don’t feel as fresh and start smelling when wet. Also the shower had a certain odor on some days. Still, all in all, we would definitely come back!

Во время поездки по Шри Ланке не планировали ехать в Тангалле и отель предварительно не бронировали. Эллу затянуло дождями и туманом, поэтому поехали к морю, но добраться до Унаватуны или Хиккадувы за пару часов из Эллы нереально, навигатор показал 3,5 часа, приняли решение ехать в Тангалле. Добрались в город в 7 вечера, по темноте. Выбрали отель через сайт бронирования, посмотрели номер и остались на 1 день. В отеле, кроме нас были всего одни постояльцы. Понравилась зеленая территория у отеля, пальмы. Территория ухожена и чиста. Бетонный забор частично защищает от шумной дороги. Номер выбрали маленький, высокий потолок не добавил ему объема. Кондиционер работал очень шумно, как и вентилятор. Окно в номере маленькое и узкое, шторы открыть сложно, света попадает мало. Оставив вещи, поехали искать место, где можно покушать. Выбор остановили на ресторане с видом на море, в темноте разобраться сложно и выбор, если честно небольшой. Недалеко отеля на трассе есть супермаркет. Котту в ресторане оказался так себе, ну покормили собак хотя бы и отправились спать. Кондиционер в номере морозит хорошо, замерзли ночью. Утром порадовались первой встрече с морем, удивились сумасшедшему прибою на пляже напротив отеля и пошли на завтрак. Пляж через дорогу от отеля, на которой иногда очень оживленное движение. Завтрак накрывают в беседке прямо на лужайке под пальмами. Завтрак понравился, приносят много-много тарелочек, заставляют весь стол) Были блинчики, омлет, фрукты (манго, папайя, ананас), тосты, сок, кофе. Еды хватило, все вкусно. Когда кушали с пальмы на лужайке рухнул кокос! Звук незабываемый. Кокос большой, мне бы очень не понравилось, если он попал в меня! А возможно я бы и не понял, что случилось. Под деревянным зонтиком, где был накрыт завтрак безопасно. У отеля есть парковка на несколько машин. Отель понравился, остановился бы еще раз, но взял бы номер с видом на море и балконом.

This is a nice clean hotel with comfortable beds and something as unusual in Lanka as a fast Wi-Fi. The front rooms have a terrace, but some will be disturbed by the traffic passing at night. If so, ask for a room in the back. Breakfast was as always in Sri Lanka, toast, jam, butter, coffee or tea, eggs and fruit platter. To get into Tangalle you will have to get a tuk-tuk which will set you back 250 rupees :-). The beach is marvellous and almost remote. You have to walk down, turn left when you get to a fork to avoid getting into the 5-star hotel grounds. Just before reaching the beach itself you will pass Sea Breeze Garden *Guesthouse* and restaurant. They serve nice fresh food and cold beers. Recommended for seafood! There is also a small restaurant in the far end when you get down to the beach. They will serve beers and food. This is a rather primitive place, but nice. There is also possible to buy prawns from the locals at the beach. There are beds with sunshade to use here. The beach, Silent Beach, is clean and water crystal clear. To the internet generation: Turn your mobile into a Wi-Fi hotspot There’s nothing handier than turning your telephone into a mobile hotspot so that all your gadgets can get on the internet when a router isn’t available. Gone are the days of searching for a public Wi-Fi hotspot just to connect your laptop or tablet to the Internet. Today most telephones have a built-in mobile hotspot function—allowing you to work on the go and browse the Internet anytime. After a few quick steps, the phone creates its own secure Wi-Fi network, which your devices can join. There’s no need for a USB cable, and multiple users can share your phone’s mobile data plan. I bought a 5,5 Gb internet and a SIM-card (Dialog) for 1 050 rupees, or about 5,5 Euro. This we used for our two laptops with a secured connection. The telephone shop salesman in Hikkaduwa installed this on my phone in no time, and VOILA! We were online with 4G on telephone and our computers. No more stress with slow and overloaded Wi-Fi connections which is the norm in Sri Lanka.

Myself and My Husband visited Coco Tangalle for the 4th time. We visited for 3 Nights and stayed in King Coco room. our dates were 21st -24th December and at this time we were the only guests... People are missing a treat. From the moment we arrive we are made to feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble. We arrange through Dinuka (The manager of the property) for a Private Masseur to come to the property where our balcony is used... This is so good. The Food is as good as any Top Restaurant and each day we are consulted on what we would like and how we would like it cooked. The entire Staff team are what makes this property so welcoming. Any trips that you care to go on Dinuka will do his best to arrange safely. A big Thank you to : Dinuka Isura Sudara Hemintha Dilshan Chandrapala Rasitha Sirinsadana and Jinaajansa We will return to Sri Lanka and when we do will go back to Coco Tangalle. There wasn't a guest Comment Book available at the time so I suggest this is put in place so that Guests can make their valuable comments.

We have just spent ten days here. The place has had a substantial upgrade since our last visit a bit over two years ago. The rooms have been repainted and the bathrooms fitted with new fixtures. Electrical points have been changed and so on. The rooms are large, clean and have a good view to the ocean. I would mention at this point that Suwaya Villa is set in substantial grounds ... considerably bigger than this stretch of the beach which roughly starts at Ibis and carries on to Ganesh Gardens. The new manager is keen to make a success of this place: breakfast is excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended!

We arrived to a warm welcome from our hosts. The accommodation is 30 seconds walk from the beach in a really nice part of Tangalla. We had a nice room with a little terrace outside. It was practical and clean, with ceiling fan. We opted to eat at the Guesthouse in the evenings as we love Sri Lankan food and wanted an authentic experience as much as possible during our time in the country. A bonus are little tables outside by the sea where you can eat your meal. There is also a Roti Shack (run by the family- an awesome place for a cheap and tasty snack) Nethu is a fabulous cook and host and she works tirelessly to ensure that you have a great stay. For what we wanted, Sadika Guest House fitted the bill perfectly, Lovely family, great location, good price and delicious food. Thankyou so much for a lovely stay.

We enjoyed our stay at Frangipani. We were well looked after and the location was amazing. The site has three buildings, set back behind each other. We had a deluxe family room in the middle block, so a large room with two big beds on its own floor with a balcony and a good view of the sea off to the side of the front building. The room was comfortable and had what we needed. Not all the lights worked and things like towel hooks fell off but the shower worked as did the fan and ac and we had a fridge with all the water we needed. There were blankets instead of sheets - which was a bit odd - and I don’t think they’d been washed. We didn’t ask for sheets and may have been given them if we had. The site is at the southern end of Tangalle beach and the restaurant is on the beach. It felt very uncrowded and was a fantastic place to be. We didn’t really go anywhere. A wander down the beach and into town was about it. The swimming pool is about 200m down the beach from the hotel. It was literally in a building site as they are building a new, swankier place. It was a pleasant pool and was shady in the afternoon. The kids loved it. We spent most time on the beach, on the loungers and deck chairs in front of the restaurant. The restaurant itself served a good range of Sri Lankan and western food. We had fish one night which was overcooked and not great. The western food was on the whole better although the Rottis were amazing! Breakfast was good, lots of choice and good. The drinks seemed to vary each time depending who was making them... The staff were very friendly and eager to please, and we felt looked after. We’d go back but spend more time eating elsewhere as there’s a lot of choice and some amazing places further down and behind the beach. The most annoying thing was a Christmas Eve party at the place next door where the music carried on until 2.30am.

Coming to Tangalle we originally had another place reserved but there were delays and issues that we decided to explore alternative accommodation. Harmony beach had previously caught our eye online but it was settled when we popped by to take a look at it! Not just were we warmly welcomed (with a delicious lassie in the affiliated Doctor’s Bar across the road - check separate reviews) and promptly accommodated in a comfy room with a beautiful sea view balcony and air con, but there was an immediate sense of comfort and familiarity to the whole place! All the guys working here, be it rooms, kitchen or bar are so helpful and never short of a warm smile and some nice conversation. We had only planned to stay two nights in Tangalle which promptly turned into four and even as we’re leaving on the bus today it is with a slightly heavy heart. If travelling to Sri Lanka and Tangalle you should definitely male Harmony Beach Hotel a stop on your itinerary, you won’t regret it. We’re already looking forward to our next stay! Hopefully soon! Massive thank you and much love to everyone at Harmony Beach for making our stay so special. Bella and Callum

We had the most amazing peaceful and relaxing stay at Kadju house. The room was stunning with beautiful views and a open top shower which was a real treat. The staff were discreet but attentive. Then there was the food... what a treat.. we had stunning currys made for us every evening with our choice of curry and then 5 different vegetable currys to go with it. We couldnt have asked for me it was amazing. The pool is spectacular and the sunset views out of this world. We cant wait to go back again.

We had a week here in a very spacious room with balcony from where we could see the sea. We had good Sri Lan breakfast and dinners also. Unfortunately during our stay I had a medical problem but the owners were quick to help and arrange for me to be taken to a hospital. We then had to make a hasty retreat to the airport as a curfew was imposed. Again the family were more than helpful in assisting us to get to there.

Бронируйте не задумываясь! Ребята видимо только открылись, но очень стараются! Встретили, кокосами напоили, чай кофе в любое время бесплатно. А какая зона отдыха!!! Завтрак не описать словами. Особенно его размеры. Очень вкусно, очень много,мы потом не обедали и не ужинали. Прекрасный душ с сильным напором. Отличный вайфай,что тоже редко встречали. Попросили найти для нас сафари, менеджер сразу созвонимся и уже утром мы ехали на встречу слонам за очень доступную цену! Спасибо большое персоналу! Let's book without some thinking! It's a great new guesthouse. The staff had a good job. When we came, they welcomed us with coconut juice. Moreover, you can have tea or coffee anytime free. This please also have a perfect relaxing zone. What about the breakfast, it was super delicious and super big. After that you will not need to have a lunch and, maybe, dinner too. The staff try to do all for you , but it's not noisy. When we told to manager that want to have a tour to safari, he called smb and said that we could have this one in the next morning! It was a local cheap price. Thanks this place, manager, and boys from staff!

Everyone longed to return to The Last House. Easter Sunday tragic events, whose cause can never be fathomed, left a devastating scar on Sri Lanka. Precious time at The Last House made us reset ourselves, and regain the confidence that the spirit of Lanka can never be felled. Ananda and his team excelled in spite of all the challenges they had faced in running the business subsequent to the tragic events. Hats off to the management that they had kept up the innovation on all fronts, cuisine especially with excellent local curries and seafood. The magic of Mawella Bay is that when you go from this beach you take with you the peace that you have found there.

I'm writing this review at the end of a magnificent 3 week visit to Sri Lanka. We have stayed in everything from 5 star hotels to scabby Beach huts, and hands down this was my favourite place to stay. This is a family run guest house and from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you're made to feel as if you are a long lost friend who's incredibly welcome. We arrived after a long ten hour drive through the mountains so having our bags taken care of and a cool refreshing drink was very welcome. The room was clean with a comfy bed and a modern western style bathroom. The verandah was huge with a lovely outlook on to the garden with glimpses of the sea and fireflies at night. Breakfast was lovely - simple but fresh and good price. This guesthouse has the potential to become a 5 star boutique hotel, so I'd recommend get in now while it's inexpensive and support a lovely local family.

We stayed at the waves for one night and had a wonderful time. It is a quiet, tranquil haven, away from the main strip of hotels and at the far end of the beach. It may be too secluded for some but having just come from the busy touristy beach town of Mirissa, we were so glad to arrive at the waves! We were met by the wonderful host and his beaming smile and shown to our lovely room. It isn’t a fancy hotel, quite basic but has charm and the rooms are spotlessly clean, with nice wooden furniture and great aircon. The bathroom was nice too and they had laid out amenities for us, even though it was the budget room. Once we had settled in, the host knocked on the door with 2 lovely fresh papaya juices for us, a very welcome treat! He then showed us the to the beach a few metres away through a few trees.We were greeted with miles of sand and hardly any people. Paradise. The sea isn’t really for swimming as the waves were huge and strong currents, but still a great spot for ultimate chilling. We had lunch at the mangroves resort next door which has amazing food and a lovely seafront seating area. We walked along the beach into the Tangalle town which took about an hour at a leisurely strolling pace. We walked back on the road most of the way. The service from the host was exceptional and he really went out of his way to give us a memorable stay. On top of the above, we had explained we were leaving early the next morning to go to Yala and so he called our driver to ensure he was ok to find the place and he got up with us at 4.30am (!) to see us off and had even made breakfast packs for us to take on the road. Amazing. Thank you waves team for a fabulous stay with you! The only thing I would suggest is to add some signage for the hotel on the roads leading up to it, we couldn’t see any and it made us a little wary when driving down the small quiet roads.. we found it a bit hard to find. just a tip! Otherwise loved it! Thank you!

This hotel looks on the first glance not as one the usual traveler can afford. And during the high season the price attracts usually better situated people although - to be honest – the hotel does not meet the expectations. During low season it’s a completely different story. Prices are affordable and the staff is doing its best to meet the standards a hotel in this category should offer. So the standard traveler is at a glance not the one standing in line for the shared bathroom but sitting at the beach being served coffee, fruits and a nice breakfast. The rooms are not very big but clean and with a hint of luxury that once was there. We preferred the ones not looking at the beach because they had a balcony while the beach-view rooms didn’t. For that we sacrificed a bath tub (standard in beach view). Bathrooms are spacious and clean. Rooms are equipped with AC, fridge, water kettle, tea and coffee and a TV which never worked during our stay. The whole building shows the detrimental effects of salt water and time limiting the feeling to be in a real „luxury“ hotel. The included breakfast is served at a nice spot directly at the beach. Staff is very friendly, special whishes are fulfilled promptly but the service was quite slow. We did not take lunch or dinner at the restaurant. If one wants to eat outside there are plenty of good spots nearby. The beach is nice and quiet (in low season) but with big waves. There was a swing hanging from a palm that our kids used abundantly. If you arrive by car, there is a (very) spacious car park on the hotel ground. Tangalle town centre is within walking distance (max 10 min), small shops or supermarkets are on the street just outside the hotel. The whole staff is very friendly. Especially the receptionist was very helpful and played a lot with our children. Summing it up we were really happy to have walked in and had the guts to ask about the price because we had really cool days in a surrounding not typical for travelers used to Hostels. If one is used to the usual standard in this category there is a good chance of disappointment.

Very disappointing. The hotel did not have a record of our reservation and started off by shouting at us to prove that we have paid or leave. The rooms were not the rooms we booked and were, to put it bluntly, dirty with old holey linen and towels.The toilets didnt flush without the aid of a bucket, water was turned off at night as was the wifi?? The chairs on the outdoor patio were broken. Beds were old with thin mattresses. The Landlady was rude and unhelpful. Two of our party decided to find alternative accommodation which they did next door for a quarter of the price. The one room had a broken toilet pipe so it reeked of sewage. This was fixed on day 2. Glass window panes were missing so there wasno way to keep out the mosquitos. Would not recommend staying here until some major maintenance has been carried out.
