I stayed in January and decided to extend my stay by one week. The hotel is in a fantastic location and has a super lovely and clean beach. The whole place feels relaxing and safe and the staff is friendly and helpful. The Residence Manager and his staff (Restaurant Supervisor) were always ready to accommodate special requests regarding food, rooms,... More

We stayed for 10 nights in February with Mercury. We found hotel very relaxed with good food, nice rooms and pleasant staff. The only drawbacks were the busy Galle-Matara road outside the front gates where rush hour traffic started at 6.00 am - which is a shame because the other side of the hotel is a stunning beach. Also we... More

The location and value for this hotel is excellent. The staff were friendly enough, but the service was painfully slow at times. The rooms are small and simple, some with good views of the beach and ocean. We made our booking on the Koggala Beach Hotel website, but there was confusion when we arrived about the booking. Several in our... More

We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a beach cabana and this massively affected our experience at this hotel. The hotel's location is generally good but the cabanas have the edge. We cannot praise them enough. The rooms themselves, their bar and restaurant, all the staff - supervisory, waiting staff, cleaners, gardeners, beach staff - all are excellent. The... More

We don't usually write reviews as very much believe that 'one man's meat is another man's poison' however having spent 6 weeks at the Koggala Beach Hotel felt that on this occasion we were qualified to provide some feedback. The hotel is a 3 star however in terms of style and design we found it utterly charming and have stayed... More

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.

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
