Enjoyed 2 nights here- found the rooms comfortable and clean. The fellas working the restaurant and bar are really friendly and helpful. It was a Pleasant stay after a few days touring tea country and yala. Thought they may have been a bit protectionist with signs warning visitors they should only drink safely there. Lots of other similar cabanas and... More

They have expanded considerably in size by buying and doing up adjacent buildings since LP last write about them. Now they are asking for more money for their rooms and staff are becoming arrogant. The beach in front is actually very narrow and the sea is too rough to swim.

Perfect place to while away the days with a book on the long open beach with the surf as background and plenty of activites during the day in the surrounding area if you prefer. Lovely location on the beach. Friendly and helpful staff and as female solo traveller felt very safe and looked after. My favourite stay in this trip... More

Room 5 on the first floor: inadequate ventilation, no mosquito netting, dirty, most of the bathroom fittings (toothbrush-holder, towel-rail etc) were hanging loose, the rubber shower hose kept falling off. A well-worn thin sheet on the bed.The room wasn't cleaned in the five nights we were there. We had to ask for clean towels and toilet papir. Because it was... More

I've been there 2 times, it's clean, calm with reliable price. Foods were delicious but a little expensive for Budget travellers. The Staff are kind and hospitable.You can relax just in front of the Hotel nad enjoy the beach.

This was one of my last stops in Sri Lanka and it didn't disappoint. As a single female traveller - I wanted to book somewhere with good reviews and good location. This was spot on to my expectation. The icing on the cake was the friendliness of the staff - which the previous comments also state - make you feel... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Frangipani. The staff really go out of their way to make sure you're happy and comfortable, without being the over the top. It's a beautiful part of the country and one of the best spots on Tangalla bay. I particularly want to thank Rangana, Namal and Fasloon, really great guys and made my stay... More

If you are travelling in a budget this is a nice place to stay. We got a big room with nice balcony and super clean! We had half board included, but the dinner and the breakfast were very poorly. Anyway staff was friendly and as I said if you re travelling in a budget I do recommend this guesthouse otherwise... More

We stayed here two nights. We had a nice clean room (cleanest room in Sri Lanka) in a new building I think. The food in the restaurant: we had half board and I have to say I was disappointed. For breakfast we didn't have anything special or good and we had to wait once for about two hours before we... More

Ended up at this place for a night as a stop over on my way to Tissa. The friendly owner showed me a couple of rooms and I opted for the nicer of the two. The room was spacious with decoration and nice touches which you'd expect to find in a more expensive place. The price was 4000 rupees. I... More
