“Marble Beach, Air Force Resort”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Stayed at, the "Tamarind Bungalow" Air Force Resort Marble Beach, Trincomalee for 3 nights. Food was excellent. The rooms were air conditioned, with hot and cold water, tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge. Although a bit small, mattresses are provided for up to 2 adults and 2 kids to sleep in a room. Two of the rooms in the bungalow had ensuite toilets and the room down stairs had a separate toilet. The view is out of this world !. A bit of a walk to the dining hall so would not recommend travelling for a holiday during the rainy season. The staff were very helpful and friendly, starting from the two Mr. Bandara's at the reception to Sanjeeve our Airforce Life guard who stood guard by us while we had sea baths and took us snorkeling. This Bungalow is ideal for 2-3 families with kids. However, double rooms are also available.

“secluded beach with character”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

The beach are is controlled by the Air Force ( from memory) and has beach front accomodation, an excellent restaurant and a separate bar . Unlike the beach at Trincomalee this is really a bay with bush down to the waters edge and is reasonably sheltered with good swimming and snorkeling ( so we were told)

“Lovely, Scenic”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

You can wade into the water for a kilometer or more and still the water will only be up to about your waist or lower depending on the time of year. Waves are very mild - it really does not evoke the full sense of the sea. Strangely the water is not as salty either - possibly because the great Mahaweli River flows into the sea close by. But still - superb experience!

“lovely beach!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Food was excellent loved the crab curry lunch! We stayed a couple of days at Marble Beach. The staff was very nice and friendly, it is run by the Airforce so it is very efficient.

Reviewed January 9, 2013

Supper food and service at Airforce resort, Loved the Crab curry Lunch. Plan to go back to stay at least 2 days at the chalet. They are very basic but good for a beach holiday. ALso need to do it during the Season from March onwards. We visited last week and it was over cast and rainy.
