We are 3 adults who booked for 2 weeks at the tangerine beach hotel in November, the hotel put us in adjoining rooms overlooking the pool and very close to the sea and as with other reviews the waves at night can sound like noisy heavy rain on the roof. The rooms are spacious and clean the towels and mosquito repellent plug ins are replaced every day. We could not fault the food,plenty of choice,a curry corner,10 hot plates with veg,pasta,meat and fish dishes,salad table and a lovely choice of deserts.On most evenings there would chefs serving a carvery or BBQ.The restaurant staff are very attentive and friendly, if you get to know a few of them they will treat you very well and will talk about family and Sri Lanka(one even offered to take me on his motorbike to Galle to see a cricket test match,but it was against New Zealand so i declined),but if others know you are leaving soon more and more will try to "attend" to you for the chance of a tip, we tried to keep to 3 waiters who served us from the start.The water gardens are lovely and must admit we did feed the fish who will greedily take bread out of your hands.Never had a problem finding a sun bed,watched the chipmunks play,the water monitor stroll around and the very large fruit bats soaring.The beach is small and the sea rough there are plenty of annoying vendors trying to sell you trips,we booked a day trip with buddy tours at the green bamboo just over the railway lines. Cost £25 each to go to Galle via a Buddhist temple,a excellent boat trip,a turtle sanctuary,a moonstone mine and a tsunami memorial .Dulan the driver was very good and the trip was built around what we wanted to do as we could add on places to see and miss others as the day went on. Last couple of tips buy souvenirs from the shop on the street and haggle, there is a large shop set back and modern looking which well worth a look and for jewelry the Blue rose gems near the main road very.reasonable.
