Have stayed here 2yrs in a row & this place just can't be beaten. Great staff jeevan, niranja (right spelling?) Suli & all the other boys are just great. We left tangalle to go to Mirissa & wish we'd stayed at tangalle a bit longer. Keep up the good work guys, we'll be back again for sure. 1st class

Stayed for 4 nights, next time will be longer. The only sound at night is the sea crashing in, 20 metres from our front door. We stayed in No.10 chalet which is one of 2 large chalets with an outdoor bathroom the size of a small house. Our verandah was the envy of the other guests, coming complete with a... More

We stayed at the Mangrove Beach Chalets and loved every second of our stay. We would have stayed longer if the place was not completely booked up. The rooms are a little dark but the location is perfect. The staff super friendly and the restauant right on site has beautiful views and serves some of the best food we sampled... More

We stayed 3 nights. After staying in great places all around Sri Lanka we approached the beach Cabana with some trepidation, but fell in love with it immediatly. The beach is exceptional as is seeing anyone else on it! The sea is magnificent but highly dangerous with 3 metre crashing waves- not safe to swim. The Cabana is basic with... More

Absolute best place to stay in Tangalle. Beach Cabana's were amazing (and cheap). Cabana's had everything you need, service was excellent, strong wifi and on a beautiful part of the beach! We booked for 3 nights but loved it so much we stayed for 5!

I don't think it's a secret that this place is a little piece of heaven. In mid-October we tried to book a place for Christmas week and it was already fully booked. Instinct told us to change our travel itinerary to stay here instead of picking another hotel. I am so glad we did!! We stayed in a beach villa... More

We spend there 2 nights, to relax a bit after visiting the inland of Sri Lanka. It must be a taste of heaven : a beautiful beach, very clean, with coconut trees bringing some shadow, fine sand, great sunsets. You may lay on long chairs or hamacs. The sea is warm, just know that you can only bath before a... More

We pre booked 4 nights at the simple beach cabanas for 50€ a night. The place is wonderful set, right by the beach, surrounded by palm trees and hammocks, we felt like Robinson Crusoe. We decided to change our plans and skip 2 nights. We did not accept a refund for the 2 nights, but without a question the management... More

The cabanas are a great place for relaxing and just enjoying a piece of almost empty tropical beach. The sea is too rough for swimming, but luckily there's a natural pool close by. It's also possible to use kayaks for free in order to explore the lagoon. Nice! Staff and food is also top notch :-)

We stayed in the Mangrove Cabana for 3 nights and it exceeded expectations. It was the perfect way to finish our fantastic holiday in Sri Lanka. It is incredibly chilled out, quiet and we often felt like we had the run of the place and the beach to ourselves. The food was great and the service was fantastic although unobtrusive.... More
