Had a delicious fish curry with rice for dinner at this spot. Tables were beautifully lit and the service was great! It's location is right by the beach as well. One of the best places for food in Tangalle for sure!

We had an amazing time while staying in Tangalle. We wanted to stay only one night, it turned to be 4. One of the reasons were definitely the friendly staff of Dilena Beach, also the fantastic seafood (go for the mullet fish) and the comfy room close to the beach. The guys arranged a cheap motobike and brought me on... More

The rooms here are clean and spacious, with showers that have high pressure and hot water. Great location, with beach views from the balcony. The friendly staff are a highlight, in particular, Wasantha was very welcoming and helpful. We had a candle lit dinner of a fresh grilled fish right on the beach and it was fantastic. We had an...

We liked this place so much we ended up staying twice as long as planned. Rooms are spacious, in good condition and clean. The hotel is located direcly on the beach, with a small road (driveway) running by. You can take your meals either directly on the beautiful beach or in the roofed restaurant. The food is fresh, tasty and... More

Wonderfull place at the beach, clean big rooms, superb customer care. Very friendly! We stayed at another hotel 3times as expensive as here and we recommend this Inn to everybody. You get more than you pay for. Also try their restaurant, we had some delicious, day fresh seafood.

Warmly welcome by Sussu, we had a very good Sri Lankan breakfast. The terrace have a nice sea view for the sunny mornings. I recommend the egg hoppers, they were really good before the long road to Haputale. Prices were very correct regarding some spots around.
