The hotel is good. The cabanas are old and small, but fair. The only things that we didn't like was the noise at night of the sea (the rooms are very open) we had the honeymoon cabana. The toilet at the pool was broken down. The waves where very high, you couldn't have a nice swim. And the food, we... More

This place is super chilled. The villas are amazing and very spacious with modern bathroom and air con. The staff are so friendly and always smiling. Food is pretty good and also cheap. There isn't much to do here apart from relax on the beach or by the pool which was just what I wanted!

We stayed in one of the villas which was quite well organized and new. The resort is situated just on the beach near Tangalle. It could be just great except for some things: The construction site next to the villas: It's noisy from early in the morning tip late in the evening. And it's quite dusty as well. The sea... More

My partner and I enjoyed our two night stay at the cabanas. It was part of a tour of Sri Lanka. Although the decor and furnishings of our cabana were a bit tired the location was great ... yards away from a small, sandy beach. It was a great place to relax being some distance from the town. Food was... More

After two weeks spent here my experience with this place was overall positive. Still, there some things that could be done better: 1. Food. It's not exactly bad, still they could do much better. By far. First of all - you have no actual choice at all, they offer fixed menu for breakfast and dinner, posted on a board in... More

Surly office staff, pool was out of order, slightly overbearing signage with lots of rules. Nice enough beach though. Typical of a badly run and poorly planned resort. Stay somewhere smaller and more relaxed! The family run guest houses are far better on all fronts.
