I really loved this place. Owned by a Canadian lady. The service, rooms and grounds were perfect. There is a wonderful Golden Lab dog there to play with and keep the children company as well as a wonderful pool and garden. The food is excellent. I really recommend the pizza. Very peaceful and right across the street from the beach.... More

Hello Denise, thank you for your review. Cleo our labrador dog enjoys the guests as much as our guests enjoy her - perhaps even more. We have had a bit of rain lately so our gardens are now in bloom again. We hope that your family will visit again soon. More

Great place to stay in Tangalle. Comfortable, staff is lovely, beautiful gardens and nice pool. From there you can get in a couple of hours to Mirissa for whale watching and Udawalawe National Park for wonderful elephant watching. The hotel staff can arrange the tours for you and if you are going to ask for a driver, ask for Deepal,... More

We had a very nice stay in this hotel, the service was very good, very pleasant and polite staff, clean and big rooms. The hotel is located across the street from the beach. We highly recommended this hotel. For excellent (and cheap) seafood check out the Cactus Lounge restaurant on the beach.

Thank you for this very informative review. I am always appreciative of guests who give details of our rooms, restaurant, pool and gardens so that folks can see it all through your eyes rather than just ours. We still have the monkeys visiting and lately have a lovely Mongoose family too. Great for nature watching. Your review is much appreciated.... More

The setting here is lovely and the rooms very spacious and well presented. The Canadian owner is a delightful woman who went out of her way to help us with a medical problem. We'd have no hesitation in recommending Moonstone Villas and its great restaurant.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days. The hotel staff does everything for a comfortable stay while completely invisible. Rooms are quiet and cozy. Very good breakfasts. Also you can have dinner in hotel restaurant. And staff in the restaurant is so attentive! I sure that in Tangalle I made the best choice. My husband's mother was delighted :)

Beautifully maintained and clean properties in magnificent gardens with a good pool. The input of Raelene, the Canadian part-owner, raises this place above its competitors. The all-inclusive cost (no plus plus here) makes budgeting easier! The Staff and Restaurant are both excellent as well. If you are lucky you will see some of the local wildlife including 2 mongeese who... More
