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.

We were staying in Dilena hotel for 10 days in October 2013. Recommend a room behind the kitchen on the second floor. Nice ocean view. Very friendly personnel and nice food in restaurant. Rooms are very clean and homely. Prices are lower than in hotels/restaurants around. Excelent location, 10 meters to the beach and 10 minutes to Tangalle centre or... More

Stayed the nights of 12 and 13 Sep 2013 at Dilena Beach Inn and paid LKR2,000 per night for 2 adults and a 6-year-old in a spacious triple room with three single beds, private bathroom, towels and nets. Good location about 10 metres from the beach and about a 20-minute walk from the centre of Tangalle and the bus station.... More

I was here during the off season when there weren't many guests, but that is no excuse for the rubbish service I received. I originally planned to stay here for two nights but it was so bad I escaped to mirissa after one. Right from when I arrived, I knew I wasn't going to enjoy this place. I was greeted... More

Dilena Inn is an absolutely awesome place to stay and I really recommend it! It is situated two meters from the beach where you can relax all day in a hammock admiring palm trees and Indian Ocean and feeling just like in Paradise. The place itself offers nice and cozy rooms at very reasonable price; the restaurant menu is very... More

What can I say, at Dilena you have all you need. A few rooms, all with private bathrooms and (at least partial) sea views. Great intimate atmosphere. Fantastic staff, friendly and helpful, always prepared to go the extra mile for you (a big shout out to Kasun and Shami!!). Great food in the bar at all times of day and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, in the top floor apartment with a beautiful sea view. We really enjoyed our time here, the food was delicious and the staff were very friendly- but not over friendly or pushy, which seemed common elsewhere. The guys there just wanted us to have a good time rather than overcharge us for their services.... More

This is one of the best guesthouses I’ve ever stayed in, and it was really affordable too. We made a booking for one night and ended up staying for six. The men working there are friendly, funny, and go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable. Our room was spacious and clean, with a good fan and... More

Stayed here for 6 days with my best friend and couldn't have asked for a better welcome! Left with new friends, new loves, new memories.
