Manahara Beach Cottage & Cabanas is about 8 kms. away from Tangalle. That means taking a three-wheeler or a bus every time you want go to Tangalle. If, like me, you have no problem in taking a bus (just Rs. 10), it's not a problem at all... But taking a bajaj can become a very expensive habit.
When I was given my room, the first thing I noticed was a big dead bug on the floor being eaten by thousands of ants... Some minutes later, as I opened the wardrobe, another group of insects was eating what seemed to be a piece of fruit. When I talked to the manager about the state of my room, he just answered me that a person would be sent to kill the bugs (nothing was said about cleaning the dead bugs or the rests of fruit).
The staff didn't seem to enjoy their job much and they only seemed to be interested in the guests at breakfast and dinner time. The menu is absolutely a rip off, as their prices are twice higher than those in any other guest house in Tangalle... I used to have dinner on the beach of Tangalle, where the prices (and the food) were much better.
