We stayed here with our daughter, son and his girlfriend in 3 villas between us. The villas are clean and comfortable with a lovely daybed on each veranda to take in the wonderful sea views. The pool is set in the most beautifully manicured gardens with sunbeds and clean towels replenished after each use. I was struck by the attention... More

The perfect Moonstone Villas - location walking distance to town, ocean across the street and our plans in place. From pick-up at the Columbo Airport and transportation to many sites – we were well taken care of. The restaurant staff spoilt us, menu variety was truly appreciated – hot and hotter if you requested it, or not at all. Then... More

I stayed at Moonstone with my family in the month of May for a couple of weeks. I was delighted by the spacious rooms, fantastic pool, and extremely courteous staff. I also never ran out of things to try on the fantastic menu at the restaurant. I would definitely return to Moonstone on my next trip to Tangalle!

It was a well maintained clean and tidy place with 8 villas, the service was excellent and so was the food, as it was off season the sea was not as one would expect, may be during season it would be welcoming.

We stayed here because we wanted to be in walking distance from our favourite little beach and restaurants as well as the bigger town, shops and markets. We loved our room and the outdoor areas - as we had front and back patio sitting areas. Breakfast was always great and we enjoyed a full Sri Lankan breakfast on our last... More

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
