NUMBER OF ROOMS
We walked along the beach one afternoon and looked in at the hotel, mainly to enquire about the restaurant. What caught our eye was the seafood platter, lobster, prawns, crab etc. We talked to the manager who suggested that he could make a wonderful evening table, soft lights etc. So, we made a reservation and ordered the seafood. On arrival we were shown to our table in the upper level, it was bright, nothing on the table and we were the only people there. Maybe that should have indicated something! When the food arrived it looked fine, although not a great deal of it. We asked where was the salad etc. Gave a blank look but said he could get some. I think we ate the prawns first, I then turned over the Lobster (it is in fact Crayfish) and the shell was empty, no meat. A few more blank stares when I asked what happened to the meat. The crabs were very small but no implements to get out the meat. Another blank stare. When we tried the cuttlefish, we just could not cut into it, just like a piece of leather. At that point I said to the manager and the waiter to forget the whole thing. I told him that although it was not worth it, I would pay him half the bill. More blank stares and a reply that he could not possibly do that. We told him in that case he would get nothing. He eventually returned with the bill, which he said he had taken off 50%. If fact he had increased the bill by that amount, then taken the 50% off. I could go on, but it took us a great deal of energy to get to the point of leaving some money and walking out. In our three weeks in Sri Lanka this was our only encounter of either bad food or bad service. If you are around this area just walk further down the beach to either the shack on the beach or to the Good Karma Hotel both of which offer great food and service. The hotel did look empty and, in my opinion, should remain so.…
The hotel is situated in a quiet area between the sea and the lagoon. It has about 12 rooms, a dining area and a pool area. You have direct access to the sea. There are also some small shops where you can buy cookies or water. Otherwise there are several hotels nearby and a restaurant. The rooms are very spacious and clean. There is a menu for lunch and dinner. Often dishes on the menu are not available and sometimes dishes are served although some ingredients are missing. The menu is not very extensive and also the food was often served cold. The portions are sometimes really small. You need a lot of patience for the meals, because the preparation of the food often takes hours. What also would have been a good information for the beginning that the breakfast is served in courses. First a small fruit plate, egg dish, toast and finally a sweet dish. We partly sat for 2 hours during the breakfast. Which is definitely too long if one plans an excursion. The next mystery was that we had to change our room after the first night. We had booked 2 nights in advance and had noticed during the trip that one night was missing. Fortunately there was a room available for the missing night. We were told that guests would arrive and that we would have to move to another room. So after the first night we packed our things and moved into another room. Today, the third day, our old room was still not occupied by other guests. It is empty. All in all a nice well-kept complex but I would only recommend the hotel if you have a lot of patience. I would not come here with children…
I booked the place for the last weekend (17/12/2019). When I was there it was about 7:30pm and he welcome us and said really sorry the londry hasn't received yet and no staffing to serve. At least he should have call us and inform the situation.
We stayed at Green Parrot for three days on the way from Mirissa to Yala National Park. The hotel is situated halfway between the two near the town of Tangalle. A short taxi or tuk tuk ride gets you to a beautiful lagoon where you can see birds and buffalo. Between the beach and this lagoon is a brand new hotel with a very nice pool and a restaurant with a first floor roof terrace overlooking many palm trees and the beach. The rooms are very spacious and the bed was huge and very comfortable. Everybody who works here is very kind and hospitable. Supun and Viktoria quickly became our friends. The southeast facing beach is absolutely amazing and very quiet. The walk down the road east is very worth it as well. You'll probably see many grey langur monkeys there and you'll come by Shantha, who has a very nice establishment close to Green Parrot Hotel. All in all, everything about Green Parrot Hotel makes this a great place to relax and enjoy island life to the fullest.…
We got a welcome king count. The beach was clean and very calm. We saw a nice sunset. We had half board. The à la carte dinner was good and included a free non-alcoholic drink. The service was ok. The room was very big and included a couch. The hotel is very calm but is outlying.
