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

The hotel is good in many ways. Everything is environment friendly. Staff is polite and efficient. The premises are open but safe. The driver stayed free. Only thing that I found lacking is a pen or pencil in the stationery folder. A pair of slipper would have made it complete. On the whole, it is good value for money. Tarik... More
