This place is in a beautiful location, just out of the main part of town so really quiet. We stayed in one of the cabanas. They are fun, but really dark, dingy and to be honest a bit dirty. All night we could hear rustling, which is understandable because the room was made from bamboo leaves but we didn't sleep... More

Good things Quiet location, friendly service, and a really awesome food buffet. Bad things Even their better cabanas are severely overpriced; for 55€ + tax they are a very bad deal for Sri Lankan standards, as they are quite basic.I don't mind basic, but come'on.The cheapest cabana is like 25€ + tax, and a little less of a bad deal,...

We have got the last cabana available for that night (the farthest left end facing the sea) and we had the worst experience ever. We have lived three years in Asia but we have never faced such a awful experience. As soon as we have inspected the room in the afternoon we found droppings almost everywhere but we thought they...

We walked by Sandy's one afternoon and stopped for a drink. We watched a guy prepare seafood grill with such care that we were sure it has to be good. The next evening, we came to have a dinner there. I don't know if they do it ever night, but thay had buffet dinner, either rice &curry only (for 750... More

This place is where we've rented a first-row beach cabana for a day, staying in paradise 10m from the sea. Which seemed great during the day, but the waves were too noisy to sleep well (the bedroom is open, without windows). We've spent a lot of money on the cabana, but had amazing fish dinner which was very cheap (we've... More

The place is beautiful , but that is where it ends for me. Was there last week on a solo trip, had just checked in and was sitting by the beach. Shortly, a few other guests of the hotel too joined in outside. Apparently as a result of an earlier argument with these other guests over accomodating an extra bed... More

We loved this relaxing, beautiful place. It is very quite, perfect for lazing on the beach. The guest house had very nice 2 floored cabanas with ocean view. The restaurant is directly on the beach and serves excellent food, also the breakfast is very rich. You can also rent canoes and go paddling aroud the lagoon.

Perfect and awesome stay! Good food, really nice beach cabans, clean and big and modern combined with nature. We just loved it. Unfortunanly no swimming becuase the current was too strong...but nice walks on the lonely beach, not so many tourist like on the whole coast before.5 stars!

I came to Sandys with the thought of only staying for a couple of nights, I ended up staying until the end of my holidays. That says it all. Runned by a very welcoming family. Located in a perfect, quiet spot in Tangalla. The food is excellent, the decoration is exquisite. I loved it. Elsa
