“comfortable & clean”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

modern and clean, we stayed in a family room which was great- best shower of the holiday! The staff were great especially restaurant staff. Great having a cup of tea in early evening watching birds and bats come into roost on the lagoon, the lagoon was a bit smelly though and dirty further upstream near town. The pool was very welcome and clean. the manager arranged great trips which were reasonably priced. Not the classic Sri Lankan experience but overall a good stay if you don't mind paying a bit more for comfort

Planning our trip to Sri Lanka we were going to spend our time in relaxation, and a little bit sightseeing. And Villa Tangalle Lagoon is a good place for this activities.

The hotel is located in the city center, in 5 minutes walk from the market and shops and in 200 meters from the ocean.

We were living in honeymoon suite, a large room with a balcony facing the swimming pool. I believe, this is the best choice for couples at this place. Our room was neat and clean. The personnel of the hotel does not disturb with a scheduled cleanings, but if you ask, they'll come and clean the room immediately.

The food in the hotel's restaurant is very good. We loved our full breakfasts: fruit plate or freshly squeezed juice with fried eggs or omelet with toasts, butter and jam and a cup of freshly brewed aromatic coffee. And for dinner we certainly preferred seafood. If you come and stay there, you should at least once order coconut soup with prawns. It is delicious!

At the hotel we met the mayor of Tangalle, who is a friend of the hotel owners, and often comes to this place. And even established an informal contact with him with a bottle of brandy, paid by the major :).

The swimming pool of the hotel is clean. It is comfortable for grown ups and not too deep for children (water level is about 1,2 meters high).

The personnel of the hotel is very friendly. They really tried to do their best to make our vacation pleasant and carefree. During our stay in the hotel we had 2 birthday parties and the hotel administration each time presented a cake.

We booked and paid for three rooms through agoda and when we arrived there were only two rooms available - and not the rooms that we had booked. We were offered a triple room and a another room as a replacement and a refund on one of the rooms we had booked (less the 17% that agoda charges!) I wasn't happy with this, as I felt it was their error so why should I have to pay for their mistake (greed?)? Anyway after a bit banter they did agree to refund the full amount for one room and they did offer us 2 dinners complimentary as compensation. That aside, I do agree that the rooms are somewhat overpriced. I booked based on previous positive reviews thinking it was value for money, but having visited there I don't agree with them. I wouldn't stay there again.

Personally I thought the rooms were fine - certainly to call them grotty is a bit harsh - but otherwise this place doesn't make the grade. There are a lot of little things that don't work or are substandard: no mosquito net; some light fittings missing; safe broken; rooms not cleaned - I could go on - the point is that at this price you'd expect things to be better. The pool is fine, but if you want to swim before breakfast forget it - you have to fit in with when they want to clean the pool, even though most of the time it's empty. And I couldn't work out the manager/owner Sergei -sometimes friendly and helpful, sometimes pretty damn rude. Sri Lanka has so much more charm and much better value to offer than this place.

I want to wish good luck to the owner and staff of this hotel. Very friendly and welcoming and the photos they show demonstrate that they have a guest house with some elements to be proud of. However, the rooms both basic and 'luxury' are really quite grim and nowhere near the calibre of the pool and indeed all communal areas of the guest house. If you stay here you're paying for the pool alone. The grotty rooms make this an overpriced guest house and definitely not something that for 2014 at least can be referred to as a hotel. The owner needs to either invest in the rooms or show more photos of what the rooms and bathrooms look like in reality, as at the moment it's misleading to say the least.

Room Tip: Other reviews suggesting that rooms aren't cleaned are unfair. Yes you have to ask for it but th...

Booked 4 nights here from the UK. Really wish I had booked the first night only then looked around locally for somewhere else. There are so many more places that are nicer, cheaper and closer to the beach. It is trying to be a boutique hotel but has none of the charm or service that you would expect for something in this price range. Rooms were nice and large but were not cleaned for the whole of our stay. When we complained about this we were told we had to ask ask to have the room cleaned - funny, I thought this was part of the normal service at a hotel! The manager was quite friendly and helpful but the service in general left a lot to be desired - very slow and half-hearted. When we complained about this the manager was decent enough to offer us a discount, however, I would not recommend this place. Go somewhere else and save your money!
