We stayed here out of season but the view and location were fantastic. It's a short tuk-tuk ride into Tangalle but we stayed at the beach for the most part.
We stayed in a large room (with two double beds) at the top of the hotel, the rooms were clean, the beds comfortable and did I mention the view of the beach and sea were lovely! ;-)
We also ate dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and had some delicious lobster at a very good price for our dinner. We certainly had none of the bad experiences described by other reviewers.
We also tried to do the turtle watch at night on a stretch of the beach not too far away (9 km). Unfortunately August was not the best time so we didn't see anything but also didn't have to pay anything. I think it was the only time in Sri Lanka where something didn't work out so can't complain too much.
Anyway we enjoyed the Blue Horizon and would go back again.
