Lovely family who run this place made us feel right at home and Pearly cooks delicious and filling meals. A friend recommended it to us as otherwise would not have found out about it. Right on beautiful Dalawella beach, we saw a sea turtle come and lay eggs on the beach thanks to the son coming to get us! They... More

Amazing place by the ocean!! The family is the best you can find in Sri Lanka! I really felt at home! Pearly and all her boys are lovely! They make you feel so nice! Food is amazing, Pearly makes the best curry and lentils! And how amazing is it to wake up and go to sleep with the sound of... More

We arrived in Galle and was disappointed with our first accommodation and therefore took a stroll along the beach at night. We accidentally came across this fantastic cabana and spoke to Banti (son of Pearly). Lucky enough a room was available and we chose to cancel our accommodation and move there. In the end we spent all of our remaining... More

We have stayed one night at pearly's, February 8th 2015. Points which were disappointing, ask if solved then real nice place! Pearly's is in a big construction, no noise of this but it looks like a construction site, they SHOULD have said this while booking.. Shower / water in one of the buildings is a surprise as the water tank... More

Initially we booked just two nights at Pearly and Sunil's and found ourselves staying for our whole two weeks! The location is amazing, right on the beach where you can see turtles popping their heads up out of the sea and not far from Galle, Unawatuna, Midigama and Mirissa. The upstairs cabana is definitely the best room, with your own... More

Firstly, it is important to say that Pearly and her family could not be more welcoming and helpful. Unfortunately, as they are in the middle of extending and adding more rooms, you are staying on a building site. There is a half finished building beside the two original beach cabanas. Three of the rooms are finished and accessed by the... More

What can we say but wow! Pearly, Sunil and the family were simply amazing and so hospitable! The perfect end to a very busy tour of Sri Lanka. They could not do enough for us to make our stay comfortable and unforgettable, even saying that this was our home, which it truly felt like. It was almost like were long... More

It is a nice and beautiful place with a nice cabana right at the beach, especially the one upstairs has a beatiful view and nice atmosphere. The last time we really also enjoyed the great breakfast. BUT it is now the second time (out of 2) that she massed up our booking. The last time we were 4 and she... More

We arrived at Pearly's in time for her signature breakfast having been picked up from the airport by her nephew Amila and son ,Eranga. What a great way to start our first time in Sri Lanka. Pearly and family are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble. As other reviewers have already mentioned, Pearly is a wonderful cook and... More

Four of us ended our tour of the country here and it was close enough to PERFECT! We stayed 3 nights, loving the location, the food and the hospitality of Pearly and her family. Breakfasts were amazing, especially the coconut pancakes. We were thrilled to see turtles in the water out front each afternoon. If you are looking for somewhere... More
