Pros: We had the most amazing stay! The genuine and kind hospitality of the staff and owner Nick was so nice. The hotel oozes personality and style, with little touches that makes it special and memorable. I don't think the photos online do it justice, its much nicer. And the food both local and international is great :). We wished we could have stayed longer, two days just wasn't enough!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Stunning hotel, we were blown away from when we arrived to our gorgeous huge villa covered with flower petals, with an outdoor bathroom/shower. Although out of town, the privacy and scenery is worth it, located directly on the beach, with ocean views during meal times. Two pools to enjoy, one with swim up bar. Food is delicious with rotating menu every few days, plus all day breakfast is a bonus. Service is impeccable and staff are very attentive. Best hotel I've stayed at.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Excellent service. Amazing facilities and accommodation. Felt like a home away from home. Nick, Bella, gracie and all the team were fantastic. I would highly recommend staying at Buckingham place.
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: This place was amazing! We enjoyed our last 6 nights there and it was as relaxing as it could be. The staff is super friendly and takes such great care of its customers. The food was delicious, the room beautiful and clean, the surroundings awesome, the spa super relaxing, the beach stunning, the pool and restaurant great.
Cons: The place is perfect. There was not one thing to complain about. About the surroundings: you have to be aware that the beach is not for swimming (obviously not the hotels fault and they communicate it openly on their website). Not much within walking distance (for us it was what we were looking for; if you need to get around the staff will happily arrange any transport or activities for you).

Pros: Staff were fantastic especially our room host Shanakya, everything we needed was taken care of with minimum of fuss! Food was also superb, especially the breakfast. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any traveler.
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location is stunning, beautiful beach and lovely garden. You do feel like you're in paradise. It is worthwhile to choose the Ocean View room and enjoy the great view. The rooms are nicely decorated, very spacious and clean and you can even watch the waves crush from your bathtub :) Nice and fast check in / check out process, you get all the info you need. Everyone at the hotel is very nice and welcoming, trying to make your stay as nice as possible. My hostesses, Sayuri, was extremely nice and helpful, always there for any questions or support. I thoroughly enjoyed the garden tour by the hotel naturalist, Sudheera, that I found very informative and interesting, so recommended. Nice Yoga classes with a view. Breakfast is great, lovely pool area and service. Everything is clean and well maintained.
Cons: 1. The services were very expensive. I understand it is a 5 stars exclusive hotel but perhaps the strategy can be revised and more guests would consume more and be happier. $ 135 for the spa treatment or $ 75 for a one course + desert for one person is pretty pricey... 2. Everyone in the hotel is very nice and helpful but sometimes it can be a bit too much. You are asked at least 5 times if you like the food or if you want coffee, etc. Sometimes you prefer to just enjoy without being interrupted that often. So just look for the right balance in terms of customer service. 3. I would've liked to have a bar by the beach. Perhaps that was not available due to the off season? ... 4. The pool should be opened later than 18.30 since there are no other activities to be done (other than eat and drink) after this hour. 5. There was some refurbishing activity going on right next to the pool. I did not mind that as I preferred to spend the time by the ocean but this information should've been made available prior to booking as it can be disturbing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The amazing view from the luxury bedroom, the exquisite service of the staff, highly professional and kind, ready to satisfy any request. Once you arrived a typical welcoming ritual is waiting for you, and you are followed by a personal concierge during all the staying. The food at the buffet is delicious, higher than standard
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had such a great, peaceful holiday at Anantara. We were treated like royals, the service in this hotel is beyond excellent, and the guest relation manager is very professional and good at her job. We had a villa with a pool (highly recommended) which comes with its own butler. You feel at one with nature here, walking up to peacocks knocking at the window, and there were monkeys on our roof from time to time, the resort is built in perfect harmony with nature. The breakfast was the highlight of the day, and the spa is also really wonderful. The resort is big so you can have a nice walk, with several restaurants (the Japanese one was our favourite). There are also gym/yoga classes every day. We had our honeymoon/baby moon here, which this place was perfect for. Thank you Anantara for the lovely stay.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff - especially our host Madu and the driver Dinnish - was really special to us. We had a birthday at the hotel and Madu did everything to make it perfect. + 10 people made a birthday card and they sang a song and they decorated the room with flowers and everything - so nice! Dinnish got up in the middle of the night to drive us to the local hospital to get medicine to an infection. He did everything in his power to help.
Cons: If you want alcoholic drinks - do not go there in Binara full moon poya day. They do not serve it (but you can find wine in the minibar in the room).
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Cleaning
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: As per previous reviews I read, this place is amazing. So relaxing and all you can hear are the crashing sounds of the waves which drown out all unwanted sounds (i.e. sound of children in the pool!). The view from our hotel room was amazing and I could have spent all day looking out at the sea. The nature walk with the hotel’s nature expert was super interesting, even for the children. We were even invited to a rice planting ceremony! The staff are all incredible and the restaurant food exceptionally good for both breakfast and dinner. Drinking water in glass bottles was provided for free everywhere in the resort and even sun cream was provided by each deckchair. Surprise activities were provided on rainy days (it was monsoon season). On our second before last day, we had an accident in our room at night (children playing!) and I couldn’t imagine a better response from any hotel. They whisked my husband and son off to a nearby hospital to get our son’s head checked and were so thoughtful to call me in my room (I had to stay with our toddler) to give me updates. They even covered the hospital bill! Exceptional care and service in every way.
Cons: I loved everything, but if we hadn’t had the half board offer included in our 7 night stay, we would have found the food very expensive, though the quality is indeed fantastic. The pool bar was quite expensive for lunch, but we ate so much at breakfast and dinner, so we didn’t have to order much for lunch - just for the kids.

Cons: It is quite quiet, which is great if you want a secluded break but not many other restaurants close by. It is however only a 15 minute Tuk Tuk from hirikitya which has lots of restaurants and a relaxed surfer vibe

Pros: The property was beyond our expectations! we had an amazing time in Taru Villa and will definitely go back. The place was simply beautiful, clean, and the service was beyond excellent! specifically sanjeeva and sujeeva made it feel more than a five star hotel stay! And the food was fantastic! Better than any other place we ate at in Sri Lanka. The owners really know what it takes to make a guest happy. Thank you Taru for making our trip to Sri Lanka one for the books

10.0 Excellent
Pros: There is nothing we did not like about this place. The staff is extremely helpful, friendly and attentive. Our room had a breathtaking view over the garden beach area. The room itself is light, spacious and clean. The beach is one of the most tranquil places we have ever seen, there is hardly anyone there, it is clean, wide and bordered by tall coconut trees - it is perfect for long walks. Even though it is a very quiet place, there is still a lot to do, whether it is nature or culture you want to experience, so complete relaxation and activity can be very well mixed there. You can always ask the manager to help you organize day trips or tours. Both breakfast and dinner were delicious and varied, they have a great selection of drinks as well. The property is very well maintained and designed with care.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, very clean rooms with nice view to the ocean. Food though a little less spicy than elsewhere in Sri Lanka. Endless beaches.
Cons: Unfortunately the ocean was too rough for a safe swim. But this is something we knew it could happen. So, no big deal.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: During construction of Seven Turtles in 2013, there were seven sea turtles that visited the beach. And that's where it gets its name. The property is at the end of the world. It is right on the sea side, and you will have the beach (mostly) to yourselves. We loved the design. The architect spent a couple of years in Japan, and it shows, the property is elegant and thoughtfully made. The staff is very warm. During our stay, Kirill and Alexander were very helpful. They had some great recommendations about things to do, in and around Tangalle. Outside: Beautiful fountains and gardens that are well maintained. Lounging areas away from the sea with chairs, books, and hammocks, next to the pool, and on the beach - with deck chairs and pool side loungers. They have a sea side bar. At night we would sit at the beach and look at the night sky strewn with stars. We had the beach to ourselves. If you are lucky you may spot some dolphins or whales. The pool is magnificent, we spent hours there. The sea is a bit rough. Rooms: Comfortable rooms, with all modern amenities - AC, Fridge, Safe, and Hot Water, and depending on your choice, a view of the sea or the garden.. Location: It is a little away from the city. That gives you privacy. You can get bicycles from them to explore the nearby beaches, or rent scooters to go into town. Tuk Tuk is also available. Food: Food selection is very good. You eat by the beach. We enjoyed our meals. They have both local and continental food. Ask for kitchen timings. Food is made fresh, so you need to order before hand.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The friendly and helpfull staff, The food, Peaceful and quiet place

Cons: Not much. It is not a hi-lux place but great value, and relaxing.
4.6 Okay
Pros: Staff were friendly. The beach is nice.
Cons: Location is very isolated down a long bumpy dirt track. There is nothing around, so when it rains there is nothing to do. Pool was dirty with worms. The handrail leading into the pool was loose and unsafe. Food selection was very minimal and with nothing near by so you're stuck. Food service ends at 8 and you have to pre order before 5 if you want to eat anything that isn't pasta. Shower was cold with no hot water. Room wasn't cleaned/towels not replaced. First room we were given the door wouldn't lock and we were asked if we actually needed a locking door... Partial sea view from the room, however little privacy anyway so you have to close the curtains. No atmosphere. Didn't live up to expectations which was a shame as we were really looking forward to this part of our trip. Booked for 4 nights but left after 2.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lanka Beach Bungalows undoubtedly was the best stay we had in Sri Lanka - wonderful accommodation, fabulous staff, the best pool ever and a lovely beach. A special thanks to the staff who made the stay so memorable - so friendly and attentive.
Cons: The road to the hotel is challenging - more so if it’s rained. Of course not the resorts responsibility but something to be aware of...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hans has thought of everything when he planned the bungalows at Lanka Beach. The most comfortable four poster beds with luxurious white soft cotton sheets and a mosquito net. Air conditioning as well as a ceiling fan not only in the room but also on the spacious verandah where we could seek shelter from the odd shower on a comfortable double recliner or at the little outdoor table. Great bathroom with lots of space to put things, also a drying rack. Good storage in the room and a safe. The staff were friendly and looked after us very well. The infinity swimming pool is gorgeous and so refreshing, the grounds well looked after and full of tropical flowering trees and shrubs. The beach is simply beautiful in its wildness. The food was great and fresh seafood was offered as well as traditional Sri Lankan curry and rice. Turtle watch is only a short tuktuk ride away. The WiFi was the best we had in all of Sri Lanka. We didn’t want to leave and hope we can come back here one day!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It is the BEST place to stay I've seen in all of Sri Lanka - both homey/cosy and boutique/with great architecture. Part of the staff is family, so I guess this also helps to maintain the feeling of home. Food is very, very good and the beach is a gem - very secluded (almost private), clean, with awesome waves (good for swimming), and real working people going into the ocean to fish at 4am. AMAZING EXPERIENCE for people to want to get away from it all and really relax. 9.9/10.
Cons: Not bad things, but rather something to take into account before going: 1. Free breakfast is great but basic - eggs, toast, some fruit and coffee - it's not a breakfast bar. You need to pre-order lunch and dinner in the morning at a separate cost to get the best food experience. Budget ~15 USD/day for the two meals with beer - will be more than enough. 2. This is a beach to relax. Look elsewhere for jet skis, scuba diving, etc.

Pros: Incredibly good value for money, Isana is a real gem.
Cons: nothing!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Isana is located right on the beach, so our room had an ocean view, balcony with a hammock and our shower had an open ocean view. The staff were amazing, friendly, helpful and we always got individual attention. I was so impressed by the food, I only had Sri Lankan dishes but they were all tasty and flavourful. The house was large, beautiful, peaceful with a large hammock in the garden and lots of deck chairs for relaxing. It’s a quiet beach so at times we had the beach all to ourselves. Would def recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful ocean front get away
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is amazing for a complete switch off! Amazing, almost private beaches, one after another. The house itself is really nice and spacious. And super clean and all the staff is sooooo nice! I had a really nice room upstairs with a balcony and a huuuge bed. Oh and a hammock!!
Cons: I would work a bit on the menu. Me, personally, I would prefer more local dishes in the menu. Coconut roti was amazing, though!! Thank you for that!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Amazing room with sea view Clean and very confortable Good breakfast I had a fish barbecue one night and it was really good Possibility to rent a scooter for 1500rps a day Very friendly staff!
Cons: Location a bit far from city centre
10.0 Excellent
Pros: One piece of heaven! The beach house is on a breathtaking empty beach, with an amazing garden. We stayed in room 3 and had a great terrace and slept with the sound of the waves. Staff is very nice, breakfast and dinner were very good.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The main draw card of this property is the beautiful stretch of beach at the end of the garden. We saw less than 10 people every day - it’s practically deserted and private. Clean white sand, clear warm water, although the current is quite strong. Rooms are spacious and clean, albeit a little dark, but the little outdoor balcony with your own hammock more than made up for it. Good water pressure in the shower, courteous and helpful staff. Breakfast was a little basic for a room at this price category, but overall quality of food was decent.
Cons: Would’ve loved to have some insect spray in the room. Given the design of the room (there are little holes for ventilation in the doors), there is no way to keep mosquitoes out so we were eaten alive despite the netting over the bed. Wifi signal strength from our room was just okay. You pay a price for having such a long stretch of beach pretty much all to yourself - there is nothing that is within walking distance. Tangalle itself is about 10 minutes away by tuk tuk. You can rent a scooter from the guest house for 1500 rupees/day which i would recommend - makes it easier for seeing the local sights (handy tip - don’t go to the reputed 2nd biggest blowhole in the world that is nearby - it’s probably the second biggest disappointment in the world). Given it’s remoteness, for those who don’t want to eat 3 meals a day at the guest house, there is a small shack on the beach about 30m away called Muthu’s - they do a killer grilled fish for a killer price.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Awsome accomodation. Beach for ourselves! They also lent us bodyboards for free and arranged all the transport around. Very friendly and helpful staff!

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly and welcoming staff. We visited during the Sri Lankan New Year days, so some things were a bit scetchy, e.g. the pool had not been cleaned but this was explained and therefore not an issue. Anyway with two lovely beaches to choose from close-by we did not need the pool, really. Located between the two and close to harbour and mainstreet too, yet very quiet. Awoken by sounds of peacocks in the morning. Breakfast was lovely - very friendly service. The staff was always very helpful in every way. Would definitely stay again.
Cons: Not a very good WiFi at least in our room
7.9 Good
Pros: Loved so much about this place. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location. So close to the beach but quiet. Our room looked fairly new and was a pleasure to stay in. Comfortable beds and it was private.
Cons: The pool could do with more regular cleaning. It looked murky. We did see staff cleaning this as we were leaving but we were unable to use during our stay. The bathroom was stuffy and had an odor.

4.2 Okay
Pros: Good water pressure
Cons: Location is not as good as led to believe. About 10 minute walk to beach via a filthy jungle track. Swimming pool water level was about 40mm below gutter meaning it was not filtering and had scum floating on top. No TV no phone in room bed was matteress on a concrete slab. Bathroom was adjoining with only mosquito mesh over shower for roof. View from left side of bed is the back of a wardrobe and fridge motor.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff was great - super helpful and very friendly. It‘s location is also great - close to the beach at Mirissa but also near the whale watching at Weligama too.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were lovely at this hotel. We were made to feel so welcome and actually extended our stay by a further 2 days. Nice rooms with air con/ fridge and modern bathrooms. Nice pool with a snack bar also. Close enough walk to the beach and restaurants and far enough away to chill in the pool and watch the chipmunks running around. The breakfast was lovely each morning, mix of continental and Sri Lankan- missing the hoppers and sambol! We will return for sure
Cons: Nothing - all lovely and had a true Sri Lankan atmosphere.

Pros: Everything was perfect! Beautiful room, nice pool, very tasty and fresh breakfast, perfect location. Wonderful owners!!! We recommend this place and definitely come back in the future!

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Quaint little family-run homestay a few minutes from the better beaches in Tangalle. Great location not even 5 minutes walk from the bus station. Owner was very helpful and informed us of a direct bus to Udawalawe which everyone else had told us didn't exist (it's once a day at 9:20am for the record!)
Cons: The mosquito net impedes the bed space quite a lot so the queen size bed isn't as big as you'd expect
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Good location right next to the bus station in Tangalle, but still in a quiet street. Also walking distance next to very good restaurants and beaches. Damith was very pleasant person always ready to help. Breakfast was good and in good quantity. Room was basic but was very good value for money. we enjoyed our stayed there
Cons: Bathroom ceiling had spider webs so could be cleaned more
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were only passing through Tangalle, but staying at Damith’s made us sad we didn’t plan a longer trip! The room was clean and dinner and breakfast were excellent. Absolutely the best place to stay while traveling on a budget. Damith even personally drove us to our next destination! Thank you again!

He helped me organise a trip to Udawalawe and kayaking in the nearby lagoon. Beds were comfy, breakfast was good and bedroom and bathroom was clean. Also, great central location, only 5 minute (maximum) walk to the bus station and nearby shops, but also 10 minute walk to the beach and a range of restaurants.

7.5 Good
Pros: Good location. Big pool
Cons: The waiter had proposed cheese omelete, but "forgot" to inform, that It is not included in breakferst cost. It is not a big expenses for me, but I don't like this style.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great location, beach within 1 minute walk of the cabana. The cabana and the bed was very comfy! People where very friendly and the pool is realy amazing. The ambiance and the quality of the food in the restaurant is realy good! The prices of the menu are quiete expensive compared to other restaurants in sri lanka. I realy enjoyed my stay and would definetely come back!
Cons: The menu card of the pool restaurant was not very extensive. The italian dish was very small portion for the price. The taste and quality was great! The beach is quiete small and surrounded by rocks. In september the waves where quiete high and strong stream. Not very safe for swimming
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed the fact that it was quiet and the cabanas were placed well apart giving enough privacy. It felt like you were in a jungle by the sea. Direct beach access was truly convenient. Everything about this place was just too great for a 3-star property. We are definitely going back there. I would highly recommend this place for families with children too.
Cons: Some Sausage / Bacon would have been good for the Western breakfast. My Husband enjoyed his Sri Lankan breakfast very much. Also, tea/ coffee in-room would have been very helpful.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The beach is amazing, the staff super friendly, and villas are very luxury
Cons: Nothing! Our staying was awesome and the staff really made the extra mile to welcome us
6.3 Good
Pros: It was ok. Not as nice as I had hoped for. The bathroom was clean at least
Cons: Considering the time of year we arrived and the fact that the air was quite damp, nothing dried - it would have been great to have fresh linen every day during our stay. Get some new matches for your mosquito coil!!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's the 2nd time we've stayed there and it was exactly what we were hoping for and wanted. Relaxed, chilled out and perfect little cabana in a great setting. Very friendly and helpful staff and great food and beers!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Quiet and beautiful
Cons: Loved it all
7.1 Good
Pros: The cabana is pretty nice, we had it 25 mt for a good beach. The swimming pool is nice and the bar close to it is fine.
Cons: Resturant Is just basic level, however the breakfast is ok. The light in the night is limited and there is no protection from the coconut falling. There are several wild dogs around as all Sri Lanka. Nice dogs actually and not danger but looking for attention and this turn to undesired visit in the private space. A better fence would help. Restaurant/bar on the beach are not best deal.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Such a nice and quiet place to relax, we didn't even leave the hotel area for our whole stay of five nights, because everything you need is right there. Two nice restaurants, a very nice pool area and a beautiful beach. The cabins are looking very good and have generous sizes. The villas also looked great from the outside. One of the coolest things: it's like a wildlife park. We have seen peacocks, bunnies, one big lizard and heard many exotic birds.
Cons: Nothing to complain about.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: I booked a room for the cabin, however when we arrived there we found that the cabin was too open and didn't match the photos very much (in terms of decoration and maintenance). So we asked for an upgrade to the village rooms and they easily did us that favor! The room was super spacious, very clean and comfortable! The pool is very nice, big and clean and the beach is right in front of the rooms.
Cons: The cabins could take some maintenance (but the Villa rooms are the best!)

Cons: Nothing at all
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Good location, 2 minutes to the beach. Provided with a good breakfast, eggs, toast, fresh juice and tea and coffee Hosts were very friendly and helpful and gave good advice on the surrounding area. The host also met us in his Tuk tuk at the bus station and took us to the property, which was nice. Property is 2 minutes into the main town and a small grocery shop a minute away.

8.3 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lady was really lovely she let me stay 2 extra nights. Room was nice
Cons: Wifi was sometimes abit weak but most of time it worked
4.2 Okay
Pros: AC room, close to the beach and nice restaurants.
Cons: Basic services missing : no hot water at the shower, no sheets at the bed. Everything looked much older than the pictures at booking. The room was extremely humid, almost impossible for me to breathe without the AC on. After being in many different rooms in Sri Lanka, I consider this is completely overpriced.
7.1 Good
Pros: Well sized bedroom with private bathroom at the property of a lovely family. The room has a ceiling fan and a mosquito net. There is no hot water in the shower but as it's so warm in Tangalle you don't really miss it :)
Cons: Bring your own locker if you want to lock your room when you are outside. I was not provided toilet paper and the night when I wanted to ask for some everybody seemed to be sleeping...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was very comfortable, new and clean. It was really nice to have a private area in front of the room. It's few minutes walk to the beach and the restaurants. We can totally recommend this place.
Cons: There were no wifi connection in our room (problem almost everywhere in Sri Lanka)
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice and quite comfortable rooms, balcony with chairs in the upper rooms, few minutes to the beach! One of a few places in Srí Lanka where the wifi is actually working! Owner and his mother are both very nice and helpful. We even got tasty sandwiches instead of breakfast when we needed to leave early.
Cons: There could be some clothes hangers in the room, maybe a chair or small closet. Also could be a little more cleaner from spider nets and so, but nothing crucial.

Pros: Fabulous beach, friendly staff and great value for money. Would recommend the sea view deluxe rooms
Cons: Initially we had a standard room which was a little basic - we upgraded & the room we were given is probably one of the nicest rooms I've ever stayed in

Pros: Beachfront location
Cons: Air conditioner in the room blew directly onto the bed. Too strong even on low. Would have been better positioned elsewhere within the room.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very nice pool area and located right on the beach. The restaurant is right on the beach which is lovely. The staff at the restaurant were very friendly and helpful.
Cons: The wifi is only available in public areas and even here it seemed to drop out a lot. There is no wifi available in rooms.
7.9 Good
Pros: The location is amazing, by the most beautiful, endless beaches and wonderful lagoon. The pool is peaceful and there's plenty of space to chill. The restaurant offered good choice and fair value given that there were few outside options. Peaceful location within a 10 min tuk tuk ride from tangalle.
Cons: We were given rooms opposite reception within the car park area, which wasn't what we expected. I suspect they weren't often used as the room was a little musty at first and there were a lot of mosquitos initially, presumably from the drain as we didn't have issues after the first night.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location feels like you’re in a jungle.
Cons: Ants can go inside your room so it woke us up early in the morning.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The pool was fantastic, the staff were very nice, we were able to rent a motor scooter which made seeing the sights very good. Good AC but the room is a bit dark and lighting is not bright enough, but we would recommend this property as we enjoyed a quiet night's stay and it is located right on the beach.
Cons: Brighter lighting in the room & a chair for the desk, these are suggestions not a complaint.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Calmness of the place
Cons: Hot water wasn't that hot

All super clean with a nice fresh smell, breathtaking view of the sea from balcony, lots of privacy and space in the room. The location is perfect, only 2-min walk from the nicest Sri Lankan beach called Silent beach. The hotel staff are nice and help you organise different activities, including yoga (they have a dedicated open space room at the hotel balcony with a sea view), sea turtle watching, cookery class, etc. Highly recommended and looking forward to come back again.

Pros: The Coppenrath house has an incredible atmosphere and an amazing location.

The owner is extremely kind I enjoyed many conversations with him!! The area has tons of delicious restaurants, less then 500 meters in all directions!! Easily the best Hostel on the southeren coast of Sri Lanka!!
5.0 Okay
Pros: Fantastic Location. great for backpackers travelling in the south
Cons: I am sorry say this but not very comfortable beds, foam mattress on wooden boards that didn't fit the bed properly. room not cleaned, sheets and towels not changed at all during six day stay. Shower door that didn't t close, very odd designed bathroom on a platform if the floors got wet from the shower, the floor was then very slippery. Wifi intermittent downstairs, didn't work at all in my room, small breakfast that was extra, for the price of the room not very good value.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was delicious, people working there super friendly. Beach on 10 meter walking

Pros: If you travel as a low budget, young traveller, I think it is a good place. The staff speaks good English. The breakfast (extra paid) was tasty. The AC was working perfectly.
Cons: There is a pub / restaurant downstairs the hostel. They put very loud and annoying (club style) music, so we couldn't enjoy our evenings there. The shower door was broken and we hardly could close / open it. We also used a laundry service there, I strongly dont recommend it.
10.0 Excellent

8.8 Excellent
Pros: I stayed in a dorm and it was very nice and clean. Great view and great rooftop yoga area. There were hardly any guests when I stayed there as it’s off season but I am sure it has a nice vibe and easy to meet other people. High standard for a hostel and a nice owner.
Cons: The kitchen wasn’t very clean, but they want to clean it now that the season starts soon again. There are many restaurants and bars close by along the beach so this is a good alternative.

WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE! DO NOT MISS IT!!
7.9 Good
Pros: The view on the pacific ocean The beaches near the hotel even though waves were massive and swimming was dangerous. Garden of the site Safe site
Cons: We rent a chalet an was expecting 2 independent rooms but it was not the case. The site is a bit outdated (decoration look old style) and need a bit of maintenance Despite the site is in a wonderful environment it is a bit far form Tangalle and you need a tuk tuk to reach the village
4.2 Okay
Cons: My friends and I spent a week in this hotel in January 2019. I would like to provide you with a short objective description of this hotel. Let me start with the positives. The hotel has a really nice location - it is located in a very nice garden and it has a direct pathway to a really beautiful beach. That would be all the positives. The hotel rooms are very basic (comparing to the price you have to pay for the room), but you can figure it out when you review photos of the rooms. The breakfast is very poor and the hotel restaurant is overpriced. This was one of the reasons we had dinners outside of the hotel. After reading previous reviews of the hotel restaurant we did not even want to try the hotel food. But what really made our stay in this hotel miserable was the hotel management staff. I’m travelling for business and holidays for nearly 20 years and I have never encountered such attitude. They were arrogant, not friendly, and treating us with superiority, as we were there for them and not they to help us. I’m talking specifically about 2 upper management staff, a man from Sri Lanka, and a woman from Germany. There was another management staff member (a man from Italy, I guess) who helped us to resolve some burning issues we had. This was actually the only person from upper management who tried to fix issues without further escalations to booking.com. It is important to note that other staff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful – my comments is purely regarding the upper management staff. One may think that the facilities are most important and staff is not going to spoil the holidays. I thought so too, up to last month. It’s true, it can spoil your entire holidays. So please do think twice before you book this hotel.
6.3 Good
Pros: Property was well situated...good beach...good chalet
Cons: The manager Mr Manjhu...declined to give me a check out bill whilst checking out.. Whilst checking in...they kept us waiting for 1hr..saying room not ready. They put chlorine in the pool whilst we were actually swimming in it...hows that possible i mean.. No towels in pools.. No hot water in chalet...which didn't bother us much but overall the manager and receptionist didn't give me the respect i deserve as a human being.. forget me being a client coming to spend money over there
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Amazing location by a beauiful, quiet beach. Nice pools. Spacious family rooms. Good breakfast. Free yoga twice a day.
Cons: Not many restaurants within walking distance
7.9 Good
Pros: Great beach, big area not fully build, 2 Pools.
Cons: Staff compared to our stays in Sri Lanka was't great)(except manager).
5.8 Okay
Pros: Two pools, lots of space. Clean rooms and spread out resort. Beach sheets were great. Had snorkels to borrow for the day.
Cons: No blankets in rooms! Only sheets so you should bring bedding if you need it. Breakfast was okay; too many sweet cake type options. Do not do the yoga if you have any concept of what yoga is. It’s more like a series of weird, unlinked and potentially unsafe stretches from the 1900s. Better do it yourself if you need to practice!
7.5 Good
Pros: Accommodations was basic, but clean and spacious. Beach was undeveloped and felt almost exclusive to the resort. Restaurant food was good and we made regular use of the independent beach bar which served excellent seafood.
6.3 Good
Pros: The spot is wonderful really, the beach incredible, calm, powerful and the lodge peaceful in a heaven garden
Cons: We were alone in the hotel so it must be so great normaly to enjoy... There are 2 swimming pool with salt water from sea so it literally burn the kids' eyes. The washroom was broken so all the water came on the floor. The service was really poor, simple breakfast, horrible coffee and the food amazingly expensive. 200€ To feed us (3 person on 3 lunch only) and really it was not tasty or great. Sorry but the place is magic for the beach, the calm and the view, but ,accomodation really surevaluate ...
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Hotel is big, lot of space (during our stay hotel was not full so we have almost the feeling to be alone) beautiful garden, direct access to the beach, 2 swimming pools, you can rent a scooter directly on the hotel

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff members, the front desk officer, Shahir , the Front office manager, the restaurant staff specially Kasun and the pool attendant were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and spacious. The pool was comparatively very clean and big. There was sufficient and elegant furniture and very good lighting. The beds were comfortable. The balcony overlooking the pool and the sea made us happy. The spacious lawn was maintained well. Our baggage was taken in and out on a trolley without any hazzle or delay. There were no hidden charges.
Cons: Some stretch of the road was very bad. My front buffer hit the ground hard in several places. The beach is dangerous as the sandy stretch is insignificantly small and the sea waves are very rough. The hand shower in the bathroom did not work. The hot water system gad its own timetable. The WIFI connection was very weak. The balcony is not usually cleaned (only on request is it done) The water in the bathroom and the shower at the pool smells and tastes bad and stagnant (I felt they recycle the water). The TV channels were very limited and the PEO TV system did not operate.
6.3 Good
Pros: Nice facilities with quite a big swimming pool
Cons: We arrived in the hotel, the baggage guy helped with my husband’s bag but did not help with mine (Is it a Sri Lankan custom to help a man but not a woman?). When he took us to our room, I realized it is not what we paid for - I asked him to get us to the room we booked and he told me there’s only one such a room and it is booked already. I told him I paid for a better room. He left and came back in 3mins and got us finally to the right room (suddenly it was free! Later on we found out there were more such rooms, so he was lying). Then we had dinner there, first they messed up our order, so they came and asked again what we want to but when they finally brough it, they brought just half of it! So we had to wait again. The food was ok. In the menu, there’s written the service and tax will be added to the final bill. Which is ok but then the waiter ASKED us even for more tip! Very rude, especially when it was all so messed up. At the check-in you have to sign you agree that the hotel is not responsible for any of your values you have in your room. That would be ok BUT the safe in the room is not attached to anything so you can easily take it and leave with it, plus we had the room at the ground floor and our balcony door was not possible to lock (even though it looks at first sight it is locked). All in all, it’s nice facility but there must be some major improvements.

Pros: Everything was perfect. We got a great room with a perfect view. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It was my wife's birthday during the stay and the staff went out of their way to make her day special. Really thankful for them.
