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.

We stayed here just after new year. I wouldn't recommend either the accommodation or the food. The room (apparently we had the best) was stuffy and dark (because the windows were stain glass!) without any space inside because they had put two double beds in although it did have a great view!

The family who run the place are superficially friendly but seemed really just interested in what money they could make from us.

The food was appalling- no variety, no vegetables, very small portions, no flavour, rubbery cold fried fish . This is a shame because the location of the restaurant is lovely. One night they had a barbecue (which was disappointing) and pumped out music from a radio until 11pm- which is late somewhere like Tangalle- and showed no consideration for their paying guests, just again, a desire to make some money.

It's a shame, if they concentrated on their service and food rather than how they could make money they would actually have a good place.

I wouldn't recommend this place unless as a last resort.

we stayed here for nights, had ground floor room 1st night 1000 LNR, then moved to top floor the next 3 nights, it has an entrance to the room and also a balcony looking right out to the beach and sea, this room I would recommend it is 1500, best thing to do is first thing in the morning open the double doors and lie in bed and you can see the sea,
thw owners are friendly and very helpful,
the rooms are basic but clean, the wifi is fast,
food ok, cheap the fish very tasty.

We stayed just the one night and paid LNR 1 000.

The property is right on the sandy seafront and it’s ideal for walking out of your room and directly into the Indian Ocean within 10 seconds.

Our room was a walk in and we probably got the litter of the runt. It was small, dingy and not particularly clean. The double bed was OK, the pillows were not, but the ceiling fan did keep the room cool.
No TV, fridge, safe, hot water or wi-fi, but they do have an internet cafe on site at LNR 100/hour. It works fine.
Restaurant food is averagely priced but poor quality, cold and uninspiring, the beer is just over room temperature but if you send it back, it does return much colder.
Go for the beach and water, stay a night or two but don’t expect much more for your fiver per night.
As ever, more information, photos and candid comments on our Blog (see profile for the address or Google “ktelontour”) or drop us a line directly.
