At the moment of writing we're still in paradise. The most beautiful place we've ever slept. Cute, clean cabana right on the beach with a fantastic bathroom underneath the cabana. Waking up everyday morning with the sound of the ocean and a view to die for. Staff is one of the best we have experienced and the food is delicious.

Spent two nights here and they were not enough. The beach is stunning, the staff friendly and the food and cocktails were perfect. The rooms are simple and tastefully done, and there are a bevy of activities from kayaking to night walks to find sea turtles. Fresh fish cooked to order, long leisurely breakfasts--and a friend group of guys working... More

We stayed here for two nights towards the end of our trip - we spent more than our budget to stay in a chalet as we felt in need of some serious R&R. The location is simply beautiful, and we received a warm welcome, including a welcome drink and a promise to organise a trip to see turtles laying eggs... More

We stayed here for two nights during a guided tour of Sri Lanka. We had chalet number one nearest the beach. Once at the Mangrove Chalets you only require flip flops as walking from the chalet to the beach or bar/restaurant is white soft sand. Lovely beach but limited swimming. however a fantastic place to chill out and relax. Breakfast... More

We stayed at mangrove cabanas for 2 nights in May.. Despite it being the start of monsoon season in the south we went anyway and had pure blue skies to the whole time! When we arrived we had been upgraded to a luxury beach cabana as they were doing work on the room we had originally booked.. It was amazing!... More

We stayed at Mangrove beach cabanas. We really liked it here. Best location, best beach, very nice atmosphere, staff was very nice. We also enjoyed the mils shakes, appetizers and dinner. Breakfast is not included in the price. I recommend this place.

We only stayed here for one night buy were very impresed by the place. We got the room without previous reservation and soon realised we were very lucky since the place had a lot of guests! The staff was helpful and friendly. Cabanas are eco-made, mainly of wood and are very opened, so you can hear everything from outside. Bathroom... More

We stayed here for 3 nights to relax after adventuring around Sri Lanka for a week and a half. The cabana (number 3) was wonderful - the bed was comfy, the fan kept us wonderfully cool, there were hammocks and loungers on the sand directly outside our door, and a few steps out onto the beautiful beach and there were...

This review is for Mangrove Chalets. It needs to be made clear that the Mangrove Cabanas and chalets are separate accommodations along the beach from the each other. They are separated at the point at which the lagoon reaches the beach with the Chalets situated to the west. When you first arrive in Tangalle you come down the main road... More

I wondered how i would manage 4 nights but i didn't want to leave. Yes you can relax but you can also kayak the lovely lagoon behind the chalets. Visit the town and the old Dutch resthouse. Walk the beach and help Saman collect shells to make his bracelets. Stay up until after midnight waiting for the huge turtle that... More
