The hotel has a good location but that's about it. The service is really very bad. Except for 2 staff members, most of them are lost, don't care or don't register what you are saying. I asked for a massage appointment and was kept waiting for 45 minutes to hear about the where and when which I never did. We... More

We stayed for one night at Frangipani and enjoyed our day there using the facilities and beach-front bar. The hotel is well located a short walk from town and the place is clean enough. However, we had a terrible experience when paying the bill. We booked a double room with an extra matress, and were assured it would be in... More

We were in a new section which had lovely rooms with a really nice balcony. The food was average and and wait staff pushy and unfriendly because we didn't want to organise any trips. Overall it was an ok place to stay and the beach area in front a good place to relax

Our stay at Frangipani was a mixture of great, good and bad. The location is beautiful right on the beach, lovely breakfast freshly cooked and served with a smile. Also enjoyed dinner there one night and could not fault the food. The prices are also very competitive with all the other places in Tangalle where we went and you are... More

Staying at Frangipani as we speak, location is perfect right on the beach and great spot to chill out, our double room is massive and the food is excellent - great to have a beer in the evening listen the waves hit the beach! Can't fault it and staff are friendly, loads of cricket fans around Tangalle at the moment... More

We stayed one night at Frangipani and that is something we regret. They had a new set of rooms and while the room was OK (nothing special and a lot of concrete), the view was mediocre (could not see the ocean) but the main thing for its poor rating was the staff. Nowhere were pleasant enough to say hi or... More

I want to give Frangipani a break by saying that appear to have built a whole suite of new rooms, and that probably accounts for some of our problems. The inside of our room was all concrete, which was a little bit grating when you're walking around barefoot all the time. The room was clean and comfortable, so no complaints... More

Our stay in Frangipani Beach Villas was just amazing. The room is very spacious and super clean,and the bathroom is just the same. It feels very comfortable in the room,but the location just next to the beach is so great you won't be in the room for too long. The beach is great to chill out,swim,use the bodyboard or the...
