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

We were 2 families staying in 2 chalets for 6 nights around Christmas. The service was very good, the chalet confortable. Being in a quiet place just on the beach is really great. The restaurant provides good food. We were with our driver that was provided with bed and food for free. Why not 5 stars? Well, we were unlucky... More

We had a lovely relaxing stay in cabanas for 3 days over Christmas. The location is great if you want to get away from it all for a while, it's a quiet beach (bliss after Unawatuna and Mirissa) and really beautiful. It's about a 300R tuk tuk into Tangalle itself. The cabana is lovely, very simple but beautifully designed. I... More

We were staying at a cabana a little further down the beach called Eagles nest (would really recommend staying there) but during the day when we wanted to chill at the beach, these guys made us feel more than welcome! We ate lunch here three times and one dinner- all our meals were great! Would really recommend eating here, or... More

Cannot comment on accommodation as we stayed at the nearby Coconut Island Cabanas however we ate here a few times during our stay in Tangalle. We can highly recommend their fresh seafood. We had calamari and butter fish, both were excellent. Staff is also very friendly. The place is very relaxed and has stunning views of the ocean.

After relying on trip advisor to make all of our bookings in the past five years, this one let us down. Mangrove beach chalets was a beautiful location and an overall amazing property, it was not however a good place for a family with young children. We had three main issues - 1) the chalets all open with no screens... More

We stayed in one of the beach cabanas - really clean, no aircon, but mesh over all the windows allowed for the cool sea breezes to pass through without the addition of mosquitos. Lovely big room and outside terrace. Excellent food at the beach bar and main restaurant - we saw our lunch being caught then cooked! If you need... More
