The rooms at this place are great as is the location but these young punks need to learn a few things about service. I'd also warn women travelling either alone or with other women that you will attract attention from these guys that couples or men staying there werent subjected to. It's nothing too dramatic but it is noticeable, eg when my friend and I arrived the guys turned on a bunch of random pimpin tunes and leered around us while we ate our lunch. Perhaps they've had guests who were into this kind of thing but we weren't. So if that kind of behaviour might upset your lunch, you might want to consider one of the many other establishments in the area.

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The food is delicious and well priced. The location is second to none. The restaurant is practically on the beach, which is delightful. You can hear the waves as you fall asleep which is very relaxing. Nalin, Chaluk and all the team were so friendly and welcoming. they couldn't do enough to help us and they really made our stay special. Thank you! Really hope we can return some day.

Top: nice owners want to make sure you have a nice stay. Spacious rooms are clean (when arriving) with nice views and you cannot ignore the tropical sound of the see, also while asleep.
Great food all day long straight at or next to the beach.
Tip: a female touch will make this place even nicer. I missed daily clean and nice-smelling towels and room. Staying for 3 night we had to ask ourselves for some toiletpaper, for example. This did not bother us but it can help in making this an even nice spot in Tangalle!

the best part of this place is Fasloon, the driver. we contacted him, while planning our trip and he drove us around everywhere in Sri Lanka. he is safe and reliable. he knew when to propose things and when to leave us alone. he is very open-minded and fun to be with. i can say that he became a friend.

for the guesthouse, the location is perfect, right on the beach. a very nice spot. coconut trees provide a little bit of shade.
people at the guesthouse are very friendly. and the food is very good with fresh fish directly out of the sea.
the room was very cute, comfy and clean.
we left with some regrets, we would have like to stay a bit more.

This was heaven. It exceeded our expectations. So close to the beach and the bathrooms and rooms are spotless. Nalin and his team were great and the food was excellent. I especially loved my hammock. I will be back next year!

Room Tip: Take a bottom floor room.

I have been there before, (2 years ago)and it was a good place to stay but it changed.
Prices have increased so much, it's not very clean. They put fridge in rooms ans it's noisy. The sea view desappeared, and the food is not so fresch : frozen fish.
I was really desappointed.
