We stayed at the suggestion of a friend. The hotel is not large but it is well suited. The breakfasts were large and had tons of fresh fruit to offer. The restaurant has multiple options to suit many tastes. I would loved to have seen the hotel take a bit more effort to insulate and make the rooms more energy efficient. The hotels is well suited in the street it is on as you can walk along the street or along the beach to get to it. The hotel was able to book all of our excursions though our guides did not all speak very fluent English. We enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: There are only a few rooms with a beach view so it is worth asking if that is important.

This is a lovely small Hotel right on the beach. All of the staff are friendly and helpful and this all stems from Deva who manages everything with a smile. Preantha who waited table on the beach was brilliant - always happy to find us some shade or a bit of sun and kept us well fed and watered. We struggled with his name on the first day, so just called him 'Perfect !' - mainly becuase he had the knack of knowing exactly when to leave you alone, or indeed when you wanted something. On our first day Deva announced 'we have the best Tuna in the area' - after dinner that night we were convinced he was right ! You know those occasions when you talk about 'the best steak you ever had' or 'the best pasta dish in italy' ..... well this is the best Tuna steak we have ever tasted anywhere in the world and it will live long in our memory ! ..... and what a perfect setting; sitting at a table on the beach, near the sea and by candlelight. We were here for 3 nights and would have happily stayed longer - maybe next time !

Dear Martin and Sue C It is our great pleasure to have brought a smile to your face and happiness to your spirit. As you mentioned beach side waiter Priyantha will be commended for his thoughtfulness. This is the kind of spirit that we like to see in our staff. Hope you come again and try out other Tuna recipes apart from the brilliant steak you enjoyed!

The guesthouse is located directly on the beach which is a big plus. Too bad you hear a lot of noise from the stairway inside some rooms on the first floor. I checked out the restaurant once and it did not convince me but there are enough other restaurants on the beach to go to. Most of the stuff is super friendly!

We really loved to stay at Thaproban Beach House. The staff and the manger were very kind and helpful. They were attentive and did their best to give us a good experience. And they succeeded. The location is the best. And the restaurant is in the top. We had practically all our meals at the restaurant. Sri Lankan food and fresh fish.
