On arrival at the hotel we were pleased to be told we were being upgraded to the Beach Cabanas so this review reflects them rather than the main hotel. These are the luxury part of the hotel, right on the beach on the eastern side of the main hotel and are only a year old. Koggala beach is a very... More

We arrived only to find that they wanted to put us in another resort due to (after much deduction and not much communication on their part) we were half-board meal plan. We travel a great deal so we did not want to move to another resort (substandard pool, broken furniture) and after much discussion, the manager made this happen for... More

Perfect beach location and wonderful views and sunsets from our balcony.The hotel connects with the Long Beach Hotel and is also next door to Koggala village hotel so all 3 amenieties can be used with several swimming pools to choose from. Word of warning there are lots of steps throughout the hotel and not always with handrails. The tiled floors... More

This was our first trip to Sri Lanka, and we loved every minute of the 4 weeks we were there. The food was fantastic, it ranged from very bland to super spicy and everything in between, every night had a different theme. The breakfast buffet was the best I have seen anywhere. The room was kept spotless, and the location... More

Stayed 5 nights. We booked at last minute on Expedia whilst in Sri Lanka, when our plans had to change, this was pretty much the only place with a room available to check in on New Years Eve. I know it's peak season, I know it's a busy night...but we basically got charged £200 for a very basic room that... More

Galle is a picturesque location in the southern province of sri lanka. With its huge unspoilt coastline, broad roads, sparse population and clean air, this is undoubtedly one of the best coastal getaways of sri lanka. Hence, with high hopes on our heads and good expectations(after a splendid stay at dambulla), we arrived at koggala beach hotel... 1) Hotel service... More

I had planned to write a nice review of this hotel as it was one of the cleanest and well run we had seen on our journey, however, I ran into a hiccup. I booked two rooms on booking.com and was charged $773 at booking. This was fine, as it's common to hold funds at booking. HOWEVER, upon check out,... More

The pool was fab, the beach was sublime....... and the specialness all ended right about there. The rooms were clean and spacious but I would expect that at those prices. The showers were pathetic, no water pressure and just a trickle for the poor excuse for hot water. No hot water whatsoever on our last morning (spent three nights). We... More

Ups: Great location, beautiful estate and rooms, very friendly and helpful staff (Sam is the nicest Barman in the world) Downs: It's mostly an all inclusive hotel, so slightly out of place if your traveling, the food wasn't the best we had in Sri Lanka

Let's start with something positive. The hotel has a great beachfront property so you sleep and wake up right on the sea, with your soundtrack the monster waves crashing ashore. Sadly the food is very basic and not tasty. It gets the job done if just fully your belly is the goal. But it's really cheaply done and quite disappointing... More
