We liked the nice pool with its sunbeds and their cushions, plus the fact that great towels and beach towels are provided. The lovely prawns and salad. The lovely rooms and comfy beds. The smart, clean... More

Dear RB from Bristol, thank you for your detailed review of Moonstone Villas and the surrounding area. I am pleased that you enjoyed our property and the rooms met your needs in many ways.

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.
