This agreeable mid-price guesthouse is situated in a quiet location about 30 minutes walk from Tangalle, beyond the strip of budget accommodations along Medaketiya beach and close to where the long, beautiful and less developed Marakolliya beach begins. A variety of rooms, with and without AC, are available in villas and bungalows, set in a shady garden. There is wi-fi in the main building where meals are served. My room was clean and comfortable, with a good supply of hot water. The Sri Lankan food is tasty. Unlike the guesthouses closer to town, the beach road runs behind rather than in front of Ibis, allowing unimpeded access to the beach and adding considerably to the guesthouse's allure. The entire beachfront east of Tangalle shelves steeply and is pounded by waves with a strong undertow (and indeed there are some rocks in the sea in front of Ibis): this is not a suitable beach for young children. The management team is alert and responsive though, as other reviewers have noted, the Sri Lankan partner of the German owner is a somewhat mercurial presence. I enjoyed my 4-night stay at Ibis and would recommend it, particularly for travellers seeking a quieter beach destination than Mirissa or Unawatuna.
