This is a lovely spot to hangout on the beach in Tangalle. There are a few sun loungers and hammocks that they seemed to be more than happy for people not staying in the chalets to use. There's also a sheltered (ish) rockpool in front where it's safe to swim. Food and drinks were amazing, we went every day we... More

This place is extremely beautiful. Hidden and private with a spectacular view and a nice restaurant with delicious food. I just feel sorry we didn't get to spend more time here, we just spent one afternoon.

Our party of 4 adults stayed here for 2 nights. Our expectations were exceeded in that the location is beautiful and so relaxing with very welcoming and helpful staff. Turtle watching is close by and the hotel has kayaks available for the free use of guests in the lagoon at the back. Be warned that the beach cabanas have fairly... More

Well built beach chalets about 100 yards from the sea edge with sand and Palm trees in front. Very quiet with a good beach cafe serving meals and drinks all day. All staff are very helpful and conscientious. I gather that only 2 of the chalets have air-con. and we had one. It was essential..... The 2 large beds sit... More

We stayed in the chalets part of the hotel and love the setting. It's the only place you can swim in tangalle and it really is very beautiful on the beach. Rooms big, clean and good balcony etc! The only reason we didn't give it 5 star was that the food (at the chalets only) wasn't as good as we... More

You can book trips to the national parks like Uda Walawe & Yala. Easly to do 1 one day. Restaurant has good food and drinks plus very nice views... More

The setting for Mangrove Beach Cabanas & Chalets is second to none, just by the ocean in a lovely palm tree garden with sand covering the ground. And just as good as the setting are the family chalet bungalows. The owner has designed them himself and the choice to construct them in polished concrete has paid off in the best... More

What an idyllic place to spend a few days. The villas are dotted among the palm trees, it feels very tropical and private. They are fairly basic with bath areas, a/c and beds. We had a large veranda with huge daybed. All really clean and serviced everyday. Food is served at the cafe/bar on the beach, surrounded by lounge chairs... More

We upgraded to the deluxe cabana on half board basis, which was very spacious and had a fantastic open air shower area. A large double bed enclosed with a mosquito net (necessary) and a double day bed in the shade at the front of the cabana . Breakfast was very good and the evening meals were adequate. The setting on... More

Mangrove Beach Cabanas & Chalets has wonderful cottages with loads of sand around right next to the scenic Tangalle beach. The rooms are spacious enough and right next to the lagoon. The hotel offers facilities for kayaking. All in all, one of my most memorable stays in Sri Lanka :) :)
