We stayed there only one night in a family room facing the see and kind of open rooftop so you feel the real nature with palm trees meanwhile you hear the ocean. Very nice views and great and quiet beach. We had dinner included and was very good with a wide buffet selection and fish BBQ in the beach. Also... More

The following post describes what happened to me on Nov 16, 2014. I returned to the hotel at approximately 23:30 after eating dinner elsewhere. The gate was locked and all the lights in the hotel complex were turned off so I called out for someone to open the gate. The manager (recognizable by his bald head and big muscles) appeared...

Evenings with curry bufet/all you can eat for 750 Rup. is great deal. Huge selection, one soup and dessert included. For 1500 Rup., you can have grilled fish/chicken as well. We recommend sitting on the beach when available.

We initially booked in for 2 nights at the Sandy beachfront Cabanas, having walked a few km from the main road and then along the beach looking for some beachfront accommodation, and spoken to some guests on the beach who recommended Sandy's. The room we stayed in had 3 walls, the 4th side being exposed to the sea and beachfront.... More

We stayed 2 nights in a cabana by the sea. The room is very basic but only a few meters from the sea and it's why we chose it. There is a space betwen the roof made of palm tree leaves and the walls, for a good ventilation. Unfortunatly through this way rodents use to come ( squirels at day... More

I really regret it not having paid attention to the warning reviews regarding this place, here at tripadvisor. The manager has a violent behaviour and has apparently a big problem with Sri Lankan guests. The manager molested my Sri Lankan friend, saying to him that he should stop speaking to the foreign guests. After talking to him, indicating that he... More

We loved this place right from arrival. We treated ourselves to a cabana right at the front looking out to the beach...what a view! The beach was beautiful, the staff were friendly and the evening buffet BBQ was incredible. Great vibe and a fab place to stay.

Stayed here for one night in August with some friends. We had a nice clean but basic room on the second floor of a cabana. The outside shower was a nice touch. The Saturday night Sri Lankan BBQ and all you can eat buffet is not to be missed! Location is perfect and the beach is stunning!

Very nice place to stay in Tangalle. We had one of the cabanas next to the beach and heard the waves while sleeping. The beach is beautiful and food was also good. Sometimes the fish was a little bit too dry, but the evenings BBQ was very good. I would go there again.

If only I had read the reviews before staying here! I stayed with a group of friends here for two nights. The second night after dinner the owner insulted my Sri Lankan friend (because the owner is completely racist) and then told us to leave his hotel. It was shocking to have someone tell us to get the out of... More
