Friendly family run guest house on magnificent Hikkaduwa beach. A short stroll to the A-Frame surfing break, and on a quiet stretch of beach that feels like paradise! The food service is excellent and Talin's specialises in succulent local Sri Lankan Dishes. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom and toilet, and there is an indoor sitting area with television, and an open-air covered dining area by the beach.

Stayed here for 4 weeks and loved it. The location at the quieter end of the beach is so peaceful but a ten minute walk will take you to the busier end with bars and restaurants.Train station nearby for trips to Galle etc. The room spacious, the bed large and very comfortable and the bathroom has an electric shower that works every time! Our room had no ac but a good ceiling fan and the breeze from the sea was lovely. Talin and his family are so friendly and helpful, I even learned a little Sri Lankan language. For a peaceful base this is the place to stay.

Tamaro Beach Resort is the perfect spot to stay if you're visiting Hikkaduwa. Talin and his family are incredible hosts, the accommodation is great value for money, the beds are super comfy, air conditioner is a lifesaver after a hot day on the beach and the breakfasts are second to none. We were even lucky enough to watch a sea turtle lay eggs at the front of the hotel with no one in sight!!! Thank you Talin, we will visit again and if you're travelling from the airport make sure you message Talin, he is much cheaper than the Taxi's on offer and drives a brand new hybrid. 5 stars!!!!

Fooled by positive reviews on Tripadvisor and Booking, we booked worst and most expensive night in whole trip. Room was smelly, stuffy, dark, cluttered, and noisy. Balcony was a joke. Food was overpriced and drowned in ...ketchup. ! You arrive there just to be milked out of cash, and cash is only thing that they care for. Place is poor even for Sri Lanka standards. There are better and cheeper places around. Room was 60$ per night.

At our three week trip to Sri Lanka, Tamaro was the best place we stayed. Room was very clean, AC worked and the breakfast was good (bread, eggs, fresh fruits, tea). Owners were very friendly and helpfull. The beach is quiet and you can just relax and enjoy life under palm trees :-).

We stayed hear for 2 nights towards the end of a 3 week stay in Sri Lanka and were delighted with this beach side accommodation. Having read the previous review we find it hard to believe - the couple who run the guest house were kind and very accommodating, they were both of a gentle disposition. We had a room at the front without a sea view but with A/C - the room and bathroom were spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. We could hear the road and the sea neither of which disturbed us. The sound of waves was a delight to hear. We didn't need a sea view as there was ample seating on the beach and under cover as part of their guest house. There was plenty of shaded areas, with loungers and parasols for guests use. The sea was a little rough at times but definitely my favourite swims of our trip. I went in at least 10 times in the few days we stayed there and felt safe. The accommodation is approx 3km from the Hikkadura - however we much preferred this quiet part of the beach. We walked along the shore line and back a couple of times and although this was nice to do - the main part of the tourist area was very busy. We had a good breakfast both mornings - on the last morning they were happy to provide this earlier normal due to our departure time. We had lunch on two occasions which was well prepared. We would definitely recommend this as a place to relax and enjoy the beautiful beach and sea.
