The Long Beach is a new hotel and extention to the Kogalla Beach Hotel. The rooms are large and comfortable with sea views . Nice restaurant with good choice of food. The location is quiet but in my opinion very well placed 20 mins to Unawatuna and 30 mins to Mirissa bus stop outside hotel. Friendly helpful staff. The bar area I feel lacks character but is a nice place to chill and take in the beautiful views.
There is a bank with ATM a 5 min walk away.

Room Tip: Large hotel so pick a room near reception

Our group occupied 06 rooms and the accommodation was very good though the rooms were a little bit damp since the beach was just 15-20 meters away. There were like 03 swimming pools and was not at all crowdy. I had made reservations at Koggala Beach initially but since part of the hotel was under renovations we were told that we had to check-in straight away to Long Beach which was a much better hotel as per my view.

The food was good but the service in the restaurant was really discouraging where at times we were left with empty food containers at the time of serving.

A real thank you should go to Mr. Kushan from Koggala Beach hotel for the wonderful hospitality shown and also Ms Benisha for the support given in making all arrangements for 06 rooms and keeping me informed of all the needful matters.

The beach is splendid, and an early morning walk on the beach is very much recommended. You could find stilt fisherman just a few KM away towards Ahangama and could have some good lunch at the Catalina restaurant just 100 M north of the hotel.

All in all we had an enjoyable stay at the hotel and would truly recommend same to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Beach are good but always keep the beach side entrance closed since the sea breeze...

I have been the second time in this hotel and i would come here always again. I cannot understand why some people are talking badly about this hotel, maybe they found everywhere something what is not exactly like they want to have it. I can promise that this hotel is really the best place in Sri Lanka to stay. The view is fantastic. All rooms have sea view. The beach is really long and silent. On this really long Beach are only 3 hotels, so you can walk at beach in every direction several kilometers. The hotel has two pools, one big pool with some animation and a smaller pool with relaxing music. The Animator Mr. Thilina mendis offers in a kindly and friendly way some sport-activities and is always close to the guests! In the evening is a nice and light animation with folklore shows or dancing music. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The towels have been changed every day. The room boy are friendly and correct and did a good job. Special Thanks goes to the housekeeping manager Mr. Anjana! The Service in the hotel is absolutely friendly, the reception is always helpful in every way. The hotel offers drinks on two pool bars and a main bar. The staff is really friendly and kindly! In the restaurant you can always decide between a sri lankan corner and a international corner with a lot of different meals. The food is fantastic, you can choice every day between fish, different kinds of meat, pasta, rice, potato's and vegetable, soup,fruits and dessert, coffee and tea. The restaurant is clean and the food tastes fantastic! The staff is really friendly, kindly and fast, so you never have to wait for your drink. Miss Sasheka. Miss Sushimi, Mr. Nimal and Mr. Ruvan are always really friendly and kindly so you can enjoy every meal. A special Thanks goes also to the Food- and beverage Manager Mr. Upeksha, he is always kindly and friendly to the guest an he managed every question or problem very quickly! Last but not least goes a very special thanks to the lifeguards Mr. Yoshan and Mr. Nilantha, they did a really great job and take me out from the deep sea to the land, with out them i cant write this commends!!!!
So, if you want to relax on wonderful place, come to Long Beach Resort, enjoy and feel at home!

Room Tip: All rooms have sea view!!!!

We will pass 2 weeks with our parents here. After a long but comfortable flight, we landed in Colombo and were brought with a van to the hotel. The ride was very funny because they have got a completely different street stem and kind of drive. In the resort they received us very friendly with a soft drink. The check-in was very fast and simple. they brought our package to our room and introduce us to everything. A nice thing is that our parents are in the room next to us. We have got a fantastic view to the sea from our room and are near to the restaurant. The rooms are very clean and cooled down. They employees can answer all our questions and are very kindly.
The food is very great because they got typical traditional food (spicy curry,...) and normal food (jacket potatoes,...).
All in all its a great location and a nice service.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor to reach the sea fast.

Just returned after spending 4 weeks at the long beach hotel, the hotel is situated on the beach with amazing views. The rooms are very spacious and clean and are kept to a very high standard, the restaurant is of buffet style and the food is of very high quality, the staff from managers to even the gardeners are very friendly and this makes your stay a pleasant one. I have stayed at this hotel several times and each visit just gets better, if you travel to Sri Lanka i would recommend this hotel to anyone.
