“good place for a rest!”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Frangipani offers a cosy and friendly place to stay for more than just short break of your trip- I really felt like I wanted to come back soon! Nice decorated rooms with comfortable beds, fridge, warm water, a/c, yummy food and just one step to the sea!
I enjoyed a lot!

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found it really nice. Ask if they have some games to show you, we got so frustrated with something called "how many holes, how many polar bears" if you ask the owner he will gladly show you.

Otherwise the rooms are nice and clean and it's right on the beach. Water is not that nice but it doesn't matter, cause they have some beach activities(like volleyball, frisbee and bodyboarding) and they have a cold shower outside which we used a lot.

An extra plus to the chef who cooked delicious food for us! He even let me in the kitchen one night to cook some Swedish food.

Stayed here for 2nights with friends. Rooms were 4,000-5,000Rs per night. Reasonably priced and comfortable rooms with nice seating area outside each room and sea views.

The beach itself is nice but there are far better resorts in Sri Lanka, especially if you plan to spend a lot of time on the beach. Mirissa resort has a superior beach and more choices for food etc.

We ate in the restaurant two nights and found the food good. However, We were slightly disappointed in how expensive some of the fish was when presented with the final bill. They failed to mention the price of the fish until the final day but we should have asked when ordering.

Overall, This place is ok and kept clean.Can become
Slightly boring after a few days..

Stayed at this great hotel this past October and really enjoyed myself. The staff are very friendly (try a game of carrom with them), food is great, and the rooms are very clean with lots of hot water (one of my main requirements). If you want a lovely place to stay, right on the beach, with great people, don't miss Frangipani. Almost missed this fantastic hotel due to previous negative reviews on TripAdvisor. I don't know what is wrong with some people. This place is great.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the rooms facing the beach, most of them do. Forget the room with the a/c, you don...

The first room we stayed in was gorgeous. In the main house. Room was cool and pretty but we then had to move to room 6, above the kitchen which was a lot stuffier and had a Godzilla cockroach keeping us company. But it was still nice. Big double bed, private balcony for our morning yoga.

The restaurant was nice. Good food. Especially prawn curry and coconut pancakes.

Enjoy.

I went there for 1 night but I spent 3!
The rooms are big and clean, with balconies few meters from the beach.
It was so relaxing to fall asleep with the sound of the waves as a background!!!
And you do not need a tuk tuk to go to the city, it is just few minutes far by walking!

I went there in low season, so I was almost alone in the hostel, this was perfect to get to know Nalin (the owner), his team and some of his friends, they showed me some cards games and spent 3 evenings playing and talking. All of them were really friendly and helpful giving me a lot of tips about where to go, how and when, I even could enjoy a nice road trip by motorbike with Nalin visiting nice beaches and hidden spots! Thanks Nalin!! It was amazing!! :))

The food in the restaurant is really testy! try fresh fish, they cook it amazingly good!!

It is a place where I definitely will come back during my next trip to Sri Lanka (hope soon!)

:)

We loved the place! The beach and the ocean in this place are fantastic!
The hotel was really good: spacy rooms, good shower, fridge - everything was neat and tidy. Stuff that were reading our mind - we did have to ask for anything :) very helpful and interesting to talk to.
The restaurant was good too, but a little too expensive. The food was always freshly prepared and tasted very good.
If we stay in Tangalle some day in the future, we'll choose Frangipani Beach Villas again :)
