I stayed for four nights with my husband at the beginning of a three week trip to Sri Lanka. We arrived late at night and were greeted warmly and taken to a second floor room overlooking the beach. The roaring sea was a lovely noise to fall asleep to and to wake up the next morning and see the view... More

Recently returned from a 4/5 night stay in this friendly but unpretentious hotel. Firstly I would like to say how friendly the staff are. We arrived late from our Male transfer and they had arranged for a Supper Box for us as the Restauant had already closed. A nice touch considering we were quite hungry having travelled most of her...

I wanted a hotel near galle so that I can go early to join the whale watching trip and this place was available on the long weekend... Gave a discount too. However the place is not well maintained and the roo doors did not open easily and also they were not fitting properly. The rooms were not sound proof and... More

The only thing great about the hotel is its location and the beach. Koggala beach is one of the nicest beaches in Sri Lanka at present. The sea is very shallow and is safe for kids even though the sea was a bit rough during this season. The hotel, on the other hand, leaves much to be desired. It is... More

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.

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
