Great place to spend a few days and relax after travelling around Sri Lanka.The owner , Nalin , manages to keep a relaxed feel and along with fantastic staff he achieves a very comfortable atmosphere.His enthusiasm for all things Sri Lankan is infectious and the place itself has a lovely beach house feel .My wife and I also enjoyed the...

The highlight of this hotel is that you are literally on the beach....you wake up to the sound of the waves which is lovely. The staff are attentive that's for sure but it doesn't have the same sense of Sri Lankan hospitality that I have felt so far. The ground floor rooms do not have a sea view (unless you... More

Wonderful location with a fantastic cafe/ restaurant area on a lovely part of the beach, right beside the sea. Very kind and attentive staff, who made a special effort with guests. The food was also excellent with fresh seafood, wonderfully prepared. Overall great value for money!

Pros: incredible chilled out and beautiful location (best beach ever seen), very friendly staff (although sometimes sloOoOoW :), very clean, well equipped, great food Cons: a little overprized, we didnt know that they actually have 3 buildings (only one directly at the beach - here rooms even more expensive), make sure you know what you book, NO MOSQUITO NET (but...

A recurrent problem of our vacations in Sri Lanka is that innkeepers believe that foreign tourist are willing to pay disproportionate amount of money, often even higher than back home in Europe for no or bad service. This is so persistent that I am quite sure many visitors will never go back to Sri Lanka and the locals project of... More

Stayed one night here with family including children. Unfriendly reception, sloppy service and nobody cared. Booked for dinner and breakfast, both meals totally bland and boring, lack of choice, especially for vegetarians. Left the next morning feeling that we wished we hadn't bothered with this place.

I can't believe these other reviews here on tripadvisor. We chose this hotel because of the good reviews we read here but I just can't understand how somebody could like this place! We haven't even unpacked our stuff from the car and the lady at so called "reception" already wanted us to pay for the whole stay. I'm sorry I... More

This place is shambolic and has very low standards. We paid $120 per night for a 'deluxe' room and this is crazily overpriced! I would liken this place to a 'reggae reggae type' hostel where nothing happens efficiently, hygiene is poor and service is terrible. The check in with a lady called Lisa was impersonal and uninformative. She has an... More

Me and my mom spent two wonderful days at Frangipani. The room was very clean and we had fantastic dinners and drinks at the restaurant right on the beach. At night the restaurant area is beautifully decorated with candles and the atmosphere is super relaxing. We had breakfast with our feet in the sand, watching the waves of the ocean.... More
