The hotel is located at the beach, perfect! It has a fantastic atmosphere, big comfortable rooms, nice music, relaxing chairs, hammocks at the beach. But most of all the staff is really nice and enthusiastic. Thanks to Nalin and his staff we felt part of the big Sri Lankan family. We visited the hotel in Mai 2015 and stayed for... More

This hotel right on the beach I visited with friends in April. This hotel is one of the best hotels we visited Sri Lanka. Nalin and his staff approach us with his beloved sure one of the best holiday experiences. The hotel is very nice, large and clean rooms. Everywhere smells of incense and citronella. Definitely I recommend to all... More

We booked Frangipani in January 2015 for a holiday at the end of April to coincide with my husband’s birthday. We did the usual checking the reviews etc and they all appeared really good. Communication with the hotel through booking.com was frequent and a driver was sent to Matara train station to collect us. We arrived on my husband’s birthday... More

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
