Just returned from Sri Lanka where we ended our trip with a 4 night stay at Coco bay hotel. I have stayed at numerous hotels in over 20 countries & have never come across such a helpful & friendly staff as those at this hotel. Everyone would stop & have a chat. On occasions we

Hotel's Favorite
This is an absolutely wonderful place, from the moment you walk in the door you are treated beautifully. About 6 Km from the old town, in a perfect setting. Rooms are beautiful, sitting on the balcony having a drink and watching the sunset 100 metres from the sea is brilliant.

My partner and I stayed end of December and absolutely loved it. The hotel has such a tranquil feel and boasts a stunning position overlooking a private beach. Our room was large and comfortable and we could have sat looking at the sea from our balcony forever. What makes this

We (me and my two daughters aged 5 and 11) stayed at CoCoBay for four nights in early Janaury 2019. My initial impression of the hotel wasn't perfect. The room wasn't set up with a bed for my younger daughter and the room decor was tired. However the handling of this, and our

A resort tucked away from the hustle-bustle of the major road. With Indian Ocean in sight right outside the room, one can sleep listening to the gentle lapping of the waves. Warm currents can be an issue if you want to dip into that inviting water. Just be careful. Rooms are

My reply would be exactly what the previous person stated. Repeat that there are 3 ground room floors. Dining room and bar are also at ground level. Do not recall but I believe access to lounge are on beach have something other than sand on the walkways, As suggested, check with the hotel directly for exact answers to your relevant questions. If you go, do enjoy.

Tuktuks are the easiest way to get about. 5 mins to Unawatuna and 10 mins to Galle. You could walk but the roads are not that well lit everywhere and the tuktuks cost about 1 to 2 pounds. Both have plenty of restaurants although Galle is more expensive but not prohibitive and fairly varied. The hotel dining is really good with lots of lovely fresh seafood and good western food if that is your thing. It is obviously more expensive than some local restaurants but 10 pounds would buy you some great seafood. The John Dory in banana leaf was one of the best things we ate and it was about 5 pounds. Hope that helps, it is a lovely hotel in a great country. Have a great time.

Is there an All Inclusive option at this hotel please?
We stayed there in January 2017 and as far as I am aware there is no fully inclusive. We were on half board which was a good choice. We were there to relax so it was a late breakfast at 11am which would see us through to dinner. There is also afternoon tea served in the room. Hth
