“Wonderful relaxing end to our holiday”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We had a wonderful last few days at the Frangipani, the staff were so attentive without being over powering. This has not been the cheapest stop on our travels but you get what you pay for - style. The pool was just right to dip into when the heat was a little too much and then whilst drying off on your bed chair being brought a freshly squeezed fruit juice - devine. Would go back tomorrow.

Room Tip: There are only 10 rooms and I believe they are all excellent, all face the sea.

We moved here after finding the hotels in Unawatuna itself not smart enough.
We were super happy -- this is a delightful hotel, small, and very personal. Rooms are large and nicely decorated. Food was good.
Best part is the peacefulness, and the access to miles of empty sandy beach.

A little bit of luxury only 10 minutes in a tuk tuk from the more budget options at unawatuna, I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel. The pool area lovely to look at and very relaxing, the rooms are spacious clean and offer great views of the sea. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful.

We were with a 20 months baby and the staff were great, playing with her, entertaining her when we needed a break ! She learned how to play tennis for the first time at Frangipani. Amazing swimming pool, largest room we ever had, great service from every one. The manager Angela and her assistant (i apologize for not remembering his name) were lovely and helpful. We would return there if we were to visit Sri Lanka again.

We had the last 8 days of our honeymoon at the Frangipani Tree. The staff are amazing really friendly and nothing is too much trouble for anyone. Angela the Manageress was very helpful at all times, suggesting alternative local restaurants and other activities for us to enjoy.
Saying that the food is unbelievable at Frangipani the curry's are out of this world!!! But if you have 8 nights in one place it is good to try to alternatives!
I would highly recommend staying at The Frangipani. We also had 1 night at the Fort Printers in Galle also a lovely place to stay but no-where to really sunbathe and we like sunbathing!!
We will be back - thank you to everyone there H & M

We spent 9 days here. Very helpful staff, especially the manager Angela, nothing was too much trouble for them. The food in the restaurant was excellent and they even managed to cater for a larger gathering of friends at short notice.
The accommodation is a little basic, but very clean and comfortable. The pool and beach are stunning and we will return here without hesitation.

We have just returned from spending 2 weeks at this great boutique hotel. After having read a few mixed reviews over the last few months, we were a bit unsure if we were going to get the relaxing, great quality experience that Red Dot Tours had assured us we would have.

We can honestly say that for us,this was a perfect choice and we would not hesitate to recommend to others and also to return again in the future.

The location is perfect, picture postcard views and a stunning, cleverly designed hotel. We stayed in the downstair Olive Ridley room, which was spacious, airy and very comfortable, though we did have a problem with the airconditioning, which was the only negative we experienced.
All of the staff and management are excellent, very attentive without being intrusive and they all made sure we had everything we needed at all times. The food, especially the breakfast, is really good and all freshly prepared. We ate a few evenings in the hotel and each time the dinner was very good.

All in all.....awesome!

Room Tip: Beach front room are the best.
