I stayed in Kingfisher while I was in Tangalle. Beach was just next to rooms and area was quiet. If you want a simple and cheap accommodation next to the beach, go to Pretty's rooms. The owner Pretty, so adorable, friendly and warm woman who will make your stay really comfortable. She gives really nice massage also, she has "healing"... More

My wife and I ate dinner the other nite at Kfishers. It was very good. We had a craving for Thai and ordered the green curry prawns and the red curry yellow fin. They were both outstanding. We also ordered the avocado salad which was very good....lettuce, tomato, and lots of slices of avocado. The prices are a bit more... More

I was there with my son (16 months) and husband and we just loveeeee the place. It has a hart and that is the most important for us. Definitely place would need renovation, but it is a fare price, really nice owners, good food and great location. Also for my little one I needed always something and the kitchen doors... More

I haven't been staying at the Kingfisher guest house, but I have discovered, that they have very nice, always smiling and more languages speaking female owner. Priyanthi is also giving massage and her 30 minutes neck and shoulder and back massage was a great start of day.

The place has a very friendly owner and is a good location right on the beach. Unfortunately the room we stayed had a very low working fan, for that reason it was very hot and we didn´t sleep very comfortable. The food we had was not bad, but nothing special. To us it seemed a little bit overpriced. Also the... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. The service was very friendly and the location was just perfect. I can definately recommand this place. Its direct a beautiful beach and you can walk to the very lonely beaches easy. The food quality was also good. Price-Value was absolutely ok!

I don't know how everybody else got this accomodation so cheap, we paid 2500 rupees + service charge and that is the price we paid for some much nicer places. (We moved up to Marakolyia beach and got a brand new cabana on a lovely beach for only a slightly higher price). Yes, it was top season (we came on... More

Hands down the cheapest accommodation in my trip for 800 rupees. It was basic, in front of the beach and bit dark. The bed was comfortable and the shower similar to what I got for beach huts in Thailand. The guy was very nice and helpful especially with my safety. He wouldn't sleep until I got back to the place!... More

This is a basic guesthouse that is cheap and convenient. We paid 1200Rs a night for a large fan room with en-suite. The bathroom was interestingly decorated but functional and although the shower was cold it was lovely and powerful and refreshing. We were staying in low season so it was room only, no restaurant services or wifi but there... More
