Green Garden Cabanas & Resort

Friendly family-run accommodation. Cabanas are nearer the beach track and a two storey block of 8 huge rooms each with large a balcony, is just behind them - all well separated. Rooms have mosquito nets that fit, and a fan. All are very close to beach, less than 5 minutes walk along level cement path. Good and popular restaurant. Staff visit about 5 pm with menus to ask for your dinner order. The cook will talk to you about the food and bring a great chilli sambol if you ask. The beach is small, very pretty, with clean, fine sand and safe swimming in (usually) medium waves. There are several low key bars for food and drinks, which also provide sun lounges and umbrellas for their customers. The beach also has a good amount of shade.There is a small rocky headland at each side and you can walk both directions. Look for sea turtles.
General comment: 6000 slrp from Ella; 6000 slrp to Galle, by van for 4 people.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are somewhat more private than downstairs.

Stay two nights. Iam not obsessed with staying near beaches and i do not blind myself to problems or issues just because i am staying near a beach. Many people who stay and reviewed are probably not like me. Food is very good - even excellent and well priced. Kitchen might be clean, but staff toilet is foul smelling at cafe tables. Incense is burnt more for toilet smells and less for mozzies. Owners and son are lazy. Some staff efficienyt. Rooms dirty, but not filthy. Watch scam with wrong exchange rate for billing. About 5% out. No aircon. Hut has fan. Holes in floors mean mozzy nets not effective. Very hard and uncomfortable- sore back hard. Dogs and horses not too much of pest. A few shaddy characters on the way to and from beach - beware business card guy - looks a bit doggy - probably a scam
Pay no more than 200 slr to town. Hotel can organise transort to ella, but compare prices in town. Beach cafe - hygeine might be a risk as appears not to have running water. Not sure if lonely planet even visted the accommodation - their comment about huts being ski field like is bizarre. Bus to town from main road. 10 mins walk is 10 slr.

This place is definitely worth a visit and much better value for money than the palm paradise.
Great value for money including breakfast and a warm local family that greets and provides fantastic hospitality. For example local fisherman would each morning bring the restaurant owner fresh seafood which he would offer to the guests which I highly recommend.
We planned for two nights and stayed for five.
Will definitely stay here again on my return to Sri Lanka.

Travelling through Sri Lanka we heard of Goyambokka, and decided to stay at the Green Garden Cabanas. This place is great, the cabanas are in a pretty garden with plenty of space between them for privacy. The stunningly beautiful beach is a one minute walk away. The staff are attentive and will provide you with anything you need. The food was outstanding - each day the owner would come out with some fresh fish or shellfish caught that morning and offer to cook it for us for dinner, I never said no, the portions were very generous. And all this for what amounted to around £20 per day for everything - bargain!

Cabanas is a perfect little paradise to stay. We stayed here in July 2012 for four nights. The big and spacious cabanas (with 2 big beds) are situated in a beautiful garden with plenty of space between them for good privacy, the garden is home to lots of birds( kolibries), gecko's, scruels, frogs, some friendly dogs and even 2 horses, . It was lovely to be reading on the veranda in between the bird noises. Friendly owner and staff and the Wifi in the restaurant is working properly, with a generator back-up in case of power cuts and the food is delicious with big portions. 
You can hear the waves from your bed and there are several nice and secluded beaches nearby. It is a minute walk to Paradise beach which truly is a  paradise, the green and blue color of the water, nice sand,  no rocks on beach or in water, clean,  and rock formations  on the side of the bay to give shelter for both waves and current, and a nice small bar ( Rock view) to get your fresh coconut and some food.
