My mother and I stayed here at the beginning of April and I have to say that it really surprised me! The pictures on here really do not do it justice! Do the bathrooms need updating? Yes. Could the restaurant do with a better quality of food? Yes. But overall a great stay. I would not book here on an... More

I do not usually write reviews but felt I had to 'join' and write a review for this wonderful, relatively small, hotel. Which has a great position on the beach. I cannot disagree more with the comment 'Golden Jail'. The entrance from the main road is high walled. However, you are certainly not 'jailed' in or stuck there. I went... More

Koggala beach is in a beautiful location, but I am afraid the hotel is not up to much. The reception staff were inefficient and unfriendly (very unusual for Sri Lanka) everything seemed to be a problem and there was no sense of urgency. I asked 8 times at different times where my laundry was, I never got an answer. The... More

Clean sandy beach extending as far as the eye could see in both directions with no local traders or touts to harass you. Memorable sunsets and we witnessed turtles laying eggs on the beach. Hotel gardens are well manicured and kept clean. Well maintained swimming pool but personally I would have preferred it to be larger and longer. However sea... More

Golden because it is a great beach location. Jail because you are pretty much stuck there. And actually, this hotel and others nearby all have a high concrete wall, metal door, sometimes with barbwire, to separate it from the road so it really looks like a jail from the outside. Once inside the grounds are nice. The room was spacious... More

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
