Reviewed March 25, 2012

We are a German Couple having our second home in Sri Lanka. Most of the birthdays of myself and my husband are celebrated at Point De Galle with the help of the honest and committed staff. We have many good memories there, which we share with our loved ones in Germany.

We have stayed at Point de Galle on many an occassion with our 2 young shildren. Always we have received excellent hospitality form the staff and management. This boutique beach resort is always clean and very well looked after and the staff are always keen to help you in any way they can. The rooms are beautifully set up with lovely antique furniture which make s it feel vey cosy. The beach is equisite and perfect and safe swimming and enjoyment for the whole family. We will always go back to Point de Galle to enjoy the fantastc service and enjoy the peaceful and beatiful settings.

Room Tip: Feel free to talk to the management about what sort of rooms you need to meet the needs of your fami...

Point de Galle - a small nice Sri Lanka family hotel with a beautiful garden, and perfect location right on the beach.
Now we have had our second long stay at the hotel and we can warmly recommend Point de Galle to people that prefers a nice, clean and quite place. The hotel lies on the beach and there is a natural "pool" in the sea outside the hotel greated by the coral reef.
We have enjoyed our stays very much and plan to visit the hotel again next year because of the location, the very kindly and helpfull staff and the good atmosphere.
What to expect:
Rooms: Almost all rooms are very spacious and all have a terrace or balcony. The rooms have toilet and shower and the beds are comfortable.

Food: very nice Sri Lankan food. it is also possible to order western food, but we did not try this.

Staff and service: Allways very helpfull and friendly. They helped us arranging tours and were very well informed about the area. They helped us with all our questions.

We will definately visit this hotel again

While asleep we were burgled of our jewellery, money, and cell phone. Regrettably, there were no safety deposit boxes. Sadly, there was not much help or concern from owners. Location was perfect for those who like the beach and swimming, and staff were very obliging and helpful, but sadly some rooms (like ours) had not much security as the windows had no bars and was easily broken into.
Went for the galle Literary festival. As such we did not stay in the hotel much but left in the morning and came late at night.

Room Tip: Room was big but no a\c. Occasional noise of the train.

The holiday was rudely interrupted by a theif which broke into the next room, and a visit by the Police the next morning. We were spared but this frightened the family. Value for money hotel in an excellent location though.

PointDeGalle, Owner at Point De Galle, responded to this reviewResponded April 18, 2012

The particular guests occupied a room on the first floor. Having gone out on the particular day, they had returned past midnight. The loss reported the following morning, around 7 - 8 was Rs. 3000/-, out of a larger sum of money they had.
The management wishes to state that the guests have wrongfully accused the staff of stealing money when the guests are themselves unaware if the money was lost when they were out to dinner.
On being informed, the management took steps to make a police complaint which was investigated by the local police.
