10.0 Excellent
Pros: Buckingham Place is a Palace and the nicest place I have ever stayed!! All the food at Buckingham Place was exceptional and beautifully served.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Start to finish pure class. Nick is the ultimate host and he has built an exceptional team who are on hand for your every need. A cut above the rest. Don't visit Sri Lanka without staying at Buckingam Place.
Cons: Having to leave heaven
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing place, attention to detail was impressive. Fantastic food. Highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka. Even went kayaking on the lagoon! Really enjoyed meeting Nick the owner who makes the stay feel personal. Staff were also amazing, and we’d love to stay there again.
Cons: That we were only there for one night! Too short!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed here at the end of our trip around Sri Lanka. Good choice, if we have booked this at the beginning of our trip we would have been disappointed with our other choice of accommodation. This was the best place we stayed in whole Sri Lanka. Very spacious rooms. Great pool area. Absolutely the best food we had on our trip. A fusion of Sri Lanka food and western food, a big variety of tasteful dishes. We loved everything. Perfect in every possible way. Stunning sunset on the beach. A good opportunity to watch sea turtles. We will definitely be back. Mr. Nick and his staff made our stay very memorable in every way possible.
Cons: We had to leave.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great hotel with fantastic staff. Amazing breakfast included which is available anytime of the day - perfect for someone like me who prefers brunch to breakfast. Our room was lovely and the outdoor shower with it's own palm tree was a great feature! Buckingham Place was the perfect way to end our holiday in Sri Lanka - lots of R&R. They also organised a lovely birthday celebration with decorations and a cake that was much appreciated.
Cons: Not a big issue and not something that would ever discourage me from recommending or visiting again, but communication could have been better at times, particularly around dinner options. They have a veggie menu which we weren't told about until our second day, despite making it clear one of us was a vegetarian. They are very helpful and will do all they can to accommodate but If you are veggie, I'd recommend asking for a copy of that menu when you arrive to make things easier.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved our stay. Everything was above and beyond. The staff were beautiful, food excellent and facilities spot on. Would highly recommend anyone to stay. So impressed with the kindness and the beautiful little extras. Full credit to Nic the owner for creating such a wonderful boutique resort
Cons: Absolutely nothing

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Extremely friendly staff Breathtaking views Great food
Cons: Distance from Colombo airport
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is stunning. Beautiful beach with all that you could want for a restful, getaway from it all stay. The staff are incredible, their main aim is to meet guests needs and to ensure that each guest feels ‘special’. ‘The only downside for us is that it is isolated. There is nothing but the hotel. Wonderful for a few nights, perhaps a week to totally unwind.
Cons: The rooms are spacious but do need updating with more modern touches , particularly the bathrooms. Lighting and mirrors that have demister properties would be useful. Bedroom furniture is clunky and needs to be of better quality.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location and facilities. Shisha was good.
Cons: Bed was noisy and squeaking
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Such a lovely place to stay, so relaxing. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who were all amazing!
Cons: Some limitations on shared spaces outside the rooms (but this was not a major concern.)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Having booked to stay in Mirissa for three nights as part of our honeymoon, once we had gotten to that property, we didn't really like it much. So, we stayed there for two nights and looked around Tangalle (halfway between where we were, and our next stop at Hambantota) for a replacement stay for what would have been our third night in Mirissa. Taru Villas Mawella popped up, and looked great, so we booked. We're very very pleased we did. The grounds in which the villa is set are so beautiful, and right on the quiet, lovely beach. The room we stayed in (the master deluxe) was absolutely stunning, our nicest room of the trip so far. We had our own private plunge pool and access to the main shared pool. The food was absolutely exceptional. Best we'd had on our trip so far also. The vibe is very peaceful, very relaxing, very exclusive. We had a private dinner outside our room, overlooking the beach, which was very special. Sad we only got to stay for one night (although delighted we found it by accident, as we hadn't planned to stay here) - we'd very happily come back in future for longer.
Cons: Small gripe, but on the day of arrival we went next door to Tangalle Social to eat lunch (I think Tangalle Social and Taru Villas Mawella share a kitchen). We ordered at 1.45 and didn't get our lunch until gone 3.15, despite chasing several times, which felt an inordinately long wait. It seemed the kitchen was operating on a system whereby they cooked orders for people that had phoned in earlier, hence a backlog, but this wasn't made clear to us. Should say that the service next door in Taru Villas Mawella was excellent in contrast.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place is magic! If you are looking for relax, privacy,exclusivity and beauty, this is the place. Our room with a private pool was huge! You can have a private dinner or go to the Taru Tangalle Social restaurant, the other property just next to Taru Mawella. Every single detail is just perfect! The food is so good!!!! The garden, the flowers the huge trees are unbelievable! Congratulation to Heshan, the manager, for his kindness and smile. Congratulation to all the staff because each one of you are doing a great job for caring so well of this place and make it a small paradise. Thank you! This was for sure one of the best moment that we had in Sri Lanka.
Cons: Nothing!
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: From check in to checkout we had a fantastic stay at this property. This property embodies a very relaxed boutique feel which leads to 100% relaxation.
Cons: There are several small things that can be improved upon. For example, when I was sitting in the sun chairs at the beach, no staff bothered to ask me if I wanted water or other refreshments.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything about this accommodation was perfect. The service was impeccable, the food was amazing, the rooms were beautifully decorated and looked after. We did not have t ask for a thing.

Cons: I cannot fault this property.

Seven Turtles Resort - Tangalla - Building

Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, luggage storage, and laundry facilities.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The restaurant and bar area are right on the secluded beach. Great atmosphere in the evening for drinks and dinner. Wonderful and friendly staff and on a private section of beach with not many people at all.
Cons: Nothing! I would mention to ask for a sea view room or bungalow as some views at the side garden are building works. Bungalow was fantastic and rooms are lovely
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast and food were incredible. I loved the local cuisine and the number of options for such a small place. The design, location, staff, and hospitality were excellent. People were kind, helpful, and seemed to really care about the patrons, staff, and the local environment. Everything in the room worked and the balcony was super spacious and nice. The distance to the beach was so close that we could hear the waves and the beach itself was beautiful, vast, but still not crowded, just right. We found a little swimming hole and a restaurant that was very local, but still clean and was nearby and which was fun. Our son loved playing in the pool and on the beach.
Cons: I wish the breakfast and dinner could be a little earlier/later as we wake up fairly early but that was not a big deal. The road is pretty bumpy and I wish there was an on-site tuk-tuk but again, the fact that the resort is more remote makes up for this. The wi-fi was spotty at times, but that is fine with me on a vacation. The waves are intense, so swimming was a challenge, but do-able for us.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great place, small but very comfortable and quiet, hotel on the beach. The staff is very nice and the restaurant, on the beach, is excellent ! We just want to come back soon !
10.0 Excellent
Pros: My mum and I stayed here for two nights and we absolutely loved it. from check in to check out we had a very pleasant experience. Staff are extremely polite and helpful and even the management are fully hands-on. they responded to each our question and request, however busy they were. The food is also great. The breakfast was nice and to my mother's delight there was a cinnamon and fruit oatmeal porridge - that was definitely welcome. The location is superb if you look for a quiet relaxing place. The road to the hotel has a lot of potholes and isn't great but that did not bother us, as once in the property everything was perfect. Thank you to everyone who made our stay brilliant. We would definitely come back, if we are even in Sri Lanka again.
Cons: Nothing really, everything was great.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location at a tranquil stretch of beach is amazing. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the staff has been very helpful and friendly. Also the breakfast and dinner menu are fantastic!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed the very calm and peaceful environment. Stunning beach location. The staff is very kind and helpful. Also the owner is very involved and always available when we had a question or needed something (Thank you Konstantine!) Rooms are spacious and very clean. The taste of food is awesome and the variety of options to choose from is also perfect, if you stay a couple of days.
Cons: There is actually nothing to not like...(maybe the sea is a bit too rough to swim at times, but that’s not something that can be changed ;-))
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A very nice place! We enjoyed every day!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The place is located on a long stretch of an amazing, almost wild beach with barely any people around. We stayed in the bungalow which was good. The food was nice and there was a decent choice though the service was rather slow. It's a very nice, relaxing and secluded place. The owner goes out of his way to help and meet the expectations.
Cons: It's really not a fault of the property but next door there are building works so we were woken up on the New Year's Day at 8:00 by drilling which could carry out through the day. However, you don't hear it if you move away from the pool.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Thus place was like paradise. Couldn't recommend it more highly. The beach was perfect, the room lovely, the staff brilliant and the whole experience was the dream

Pros: The House, the Staff, the Food, the Beach - everything was perfect and absolut relaxing.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Staff was amazing, always available to fulfill every request. Position, right on the beach. Cleanliness and room design. For NYE the staff organized a lovey seafood dinner with live music for all the guests, ending with firework and a glass of champagne on the beach. Th staff has been also extremely helpful to rent a scooter and to arrange for transport back to Colombo airport.
Cons: Only one small suggestion, the garden could be used and presented in a much better way
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice boutique hotel in Japanese style. Fronts on to a glorious clean strolling beach. Not much hassle from locals. No loud noises from neighbours. Food is prepared and presented well. Staff are quiet but always there when you need them.
Cons: Prices were a bit expensive by Sri Lankan prices. If you want busy bars and restaurants don't come here. It's quiet here.
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.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Incredibly good value for money, Isana is a real gem.
Cons: nothing!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very cool hotel Japanese design in every detail, Nice indoor space fot eating or reading. Very nice breakfast served in a nice way. We recommend end local bread and curry.

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: We stayed here the second time, we enjoyed everyday. You can relax in the garden right next to the beach, grab a bodyboard and have fun in the waves, enjoy the great food (try the seafood barbeque). Dont expect parties- its a place to relax and enjoy stillness. The staff is wonderfull, the manager very nice and kind and helps you wherever he cans :) thank you and hopefully See you next year again!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were welcomed by the owner and the manager (and delicious drinks :)). The atmosphere in the hotel is familiar. The stuff helped us with organising transport. We were able to stay till the departure to the airport with no extra charge. In summary, I highly recommend Green Parrot Resort.
Cons: The food at the property could be better. Breakfast was the same every day.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely tranquil resort with high standard rooms, nice pool, helpful staff & close to amazing beach.
Cons: The food and service in the restaurant was not living up to expectations. Also very few options to visit other restaurants nearby.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Very beautiful hotel close to Tangalle beach. The rooms are huge and very nice. You have everything you need like pool towels, safe, etc. The swimming pool was also very nice. The owner was very friendly, always asking if we have everything we need.
Cons: Breakfast was a bit monotone. It would have been nice to have more variation. The restaurant of the hotel was quite expensive, same for breakfast. We paid 8$ and average would be 4$ for the same. Due to the bad weather the road of the hotel was flooded because of the lake next to it. So it was a challenge to get out of the hotel and visit the neighbourhood.
7.5 Good
Pros: Spacious, modern rooms, newly refurbished. Nice, big swimming pool. Close to a lovely, empty and clean beach, a bit dangerous for swimming but nice for a quick dip in the ocean.
Cons: The restaurant is just not good enough. Food was mediocre, we had to wait 1hr almost every time for food to arrive (including breakfast), despite us being almost alone in the restaurant. Many items on the menu were not available. Service needs improvement as well, the overall feeling was that the hotel/restaurant staff did their first day at work - a bit confused and inexperienced.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice and quiet place. Big and clean rooms. Large beach without people. Good place for chilling. Friendly staff, always ready to help.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice place. Very kind staff. Spacious rooms and well designed. Breakfast was tasty, lot of dishes, i couldn't finish all of them =) And the best thing - beach. So nice, big and almost empty, just a few people walking around. Best stay in South of Sri-Lanka. Thanks to manager Chamika and owner Ilia for all help!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is amazing. The people are lovely. We saw a big improvement in the speed of service and offering at the restaurant in the short time we were there. They were working really hard to put things right. The quality of the food was good. Next time I would ask for an upstairs room for nice views.
Cons: There were some problems with the restaurant at first, and it was explained several staff had just left. In this location you really are relying on the hotel to provide a good working restaurant. Though there are some small places nearby which other guests told us were excellent such as Fishermans Lodge.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very green, surrounded by the nature

Pros: Very nice pool! And very close to the beach. The rooms are bigger than average room. Also first room on our trip that wasn't smelling humid.
Cons: Wifi on the room was very weak. To get a bit stronger you really needed to be in the lobby.
7.9 Good
Pros: Swimming pool is very big and nice Breakfasts are very good
Cons: Poor WiFi connection No privacy in the toilets and bathrooms as they are either transparent or without separation at all. Very noisy in the rooms especially in the morning from the streets because sound isolation of the rooms is very poor.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The bathroom seemed clean. There was instant hot water in the rainforest shower. The aircon was new. Owner seemed nice and was very apologetic about the cockroaches in our room.
Cons: We were put in a room right near reception which was very noisy when staff came to work early in the morning. The room had a slight damp smell. I moved a pillow and found LOTS of cockroach poo on the fitted sheet (pic below) I then moved another pillow to discover a HUGE cockroach. My husband went out to find staff to deal with it. The staff were really nice, moved the bed and killed TWO huge cockroaches and some baby ones... always a problem when there are babies, it means there are hundreds around!! I asked them to change the bedding, they changed the fitted sheet. They didn’t want to at first and I insisted that they needed to. They left us with the can of insect spray which i then used to kill another large cockroach (pic below) We slept uneasy that night and got out of there asap! The owner gave us a partial discount, but the room should have been free in my opinion!
5.8 Okay
Pros: Good ac. Big room
Cons: Generally untidy. Old towels used for cleaning up: left in hallways. Behind the breakfast buffet. Only one hand towel in the room, even after asking; no bath towel. Room not ready upon arrival at 4.45 pm!!

Pros: The hotel room and in particular the pool area were excellent. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was pretty good. There was also parking for our tuktuk.
Cons: We didnt get a great nights sleep due to been woke up by dogs howling right outside our patio door. Im pretty sure the dog that was howling belonged to the hotel so maybe the could keep a better watch of it in future for guests comfort
10.0 Excellent

Cons: Don't think I disliked anything
7.5 Good
Pros: Hard to complain, the room was pretty clean, bed was comfortable, we had all facilities claimed for room to have, so everything was good. Staff was very nice and helpful, pool isn’t big but it’s enough and what’s more important it’s clean. Breakfast was very nice, some eggs (of choice), fruits, toasts - pretty standard, only downside is lack of milk in liquid form, just “creamer” powder. Big advantage is WiFi - there was separate router for each floor so connection was awesome. Te beach across the street it’s definitely not the best it the city, but it’s an easy access to some sunbathing opportunities :)
7.9 Good
Pros: Bed comfy and clean white linen Room was clean could of done with a lick of paint Staff friendly Internet very good

5.4 Okay
Pros: Looked nice bathroom good
Cons: If you want to go there please pay when you leave! We wanted to go out at 11 pm cause I had to go to the ATM and go back. the Owner shouted at us that a apartment with 11 dollar is not a 5 star hotel and we couldn’t let him sleep.. the hole conversation took 20 minutes cause he wanted us to stay like a prisoner. BTW. The atm is like 10 min. Away so he took his sleep by hisself. I wanted to give him a handshake for everything is good but he just looked at me and laught.. he seems nice but when he get his money he was a crazy guy. He wanted me to leave without having a night there..
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner of the Guest House is super super friendly, helpful and communicative. We had Dinner two times in his Restaurant and it was so far the really best food we had in Sri Lanka!! The veg Kottu is Amazing as well as the veg Curry! You should Not miss it!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very nice and helpful - you can get whatever you need! Pretty, clean and spacious room. Tasty food in the restaurant.
Cons: Poor internet connection in the deluxe room (it was great in the economy room near the reception) - I hope it will be fixed before our next visit! ;) Bad quality towels in the standard room.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: From start to finish the attentive, friendly and professional service was outstanding. Our room was clean and the air conditioning was very effective. The breakfast was delicious, as was the wonderful Sri Lankan curry (lovingly home cooked) most definitely the best we’ve had on our 3 weeks of travelling. The location is perfect, just minutes from the beach one side and the centre the other side (took us 5 minutes to walk from the bus station). All the information you could possibly want is provided and arranging trips/tuk tuk is no problem (you can also hire scooters from this base). We really could not rate this place more highly - we will go back without hesitation.

Pros: Lovely modern hotel and facilities. Amazing restaurant staff. The New Year’s Eve event was fabulous. Thank you Mr Gihan Perera and team. We will most certainly recommend this hotel to family and friends.
Cons: Nothing
7.5 Good
Pros: The large room, air con and swimming pool. There were a lot of staff who were fairly attentive
Cons: I’m it’s just because it was the off season but they couldn’t do our laundry, the restaurant (while right on the beach) didn’t have any airflow and there were no fans. The hotel is a fair way from most of the other restaurants and shops so it’s either a long walk in the heat or a tuk tuk to go out of the resort. There was a big unfinished building that blocks the view of one of the balconies and another area near reception that was empty and had an unfinished roof.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: I loved the beach location! One of the best in the whole if Sri Lanka. Room was clean, light & airy. Good bed!
Cons: The website should explain that there are two properties and that the room I booked was far away from the main house and a bit of a walk from the restaurant, especially at night as I was travelling alone. But still I felt safe. Food at restaurant was fairly average. I did leave a cotton scarf behind and contacted the hotel but was told it was not there.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: I stayed 2 nights at this hotel which was nice but I expected it to have a little bit more quality For example: the bathroom interior was quite rusty, WiFi was only available at reception and at the restaurant and at breakfast in the morning they had just instant coffe that you had to prepare by yourself. But besides that: everything was clean, very nice empty beach, and communication (I needed a pick up from the trainstation) was super

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The beach in front of the hotel is amazing! Almost no people, big waves (what makes it hard to swim)... It's also called the lonely beach. The room (we had the cottage room) was very spacious.
Cons: There were some works going on while we were staying there... And the swimming pool could use a bit of an upgrade. Bugs in the bathroom

7.9 Good
Pros: - Great location near quiet and beautiful goyambokka beach - Great atmosphere in the hotel area, greenery, flowers and small animals. Feels like you live in a jungle - Authentic interior of cabanas - Security - Food is delicious - perfect for romantic holidays
Cons: - Cabanas are a little bit outdated, same with the bed linen - Small animals like lizards and mosquitoes can get inside through the holes between roof and walls - Please, don’t close gates to the beach at night. People from hotel sometimes can not find a way to local bars at the beach - no A/C (ventilator only) - no fridge in the room - Deposit to get beach towels - You need to remind daily to refresh water bottles
7.1 Good
Pros: The location, right next to the beach.
Cons: The beds were smelling musty and the room was not as clean as we were used to in other places we stayed. Of course the beach brings sand, but the beds were not ok. The dogs at night were so loud barking, ear plugs were not enough.... At last, we just didnt feel as nicely welcomed as how we were introduced to other places in the country in the weeks before during our trip. For the high price I would consider another place to go to where staff and owners do show there passion and enthousiasm for their guests.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed our cabana by the sea and the constant sound of the waves at night. Although the beach is public, it is a lovely bay with some delicious huts to eat in. Our teens stayed in a AC Villa which they loved and had lots of space. The staff was very friendly.
Cons: As in many places in Sri Lanka, service is slow so plan your meals before you start feeling hungry!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We stayed 4 nights in a family villa. Beautiful, spacious house with a modern style. Very close to the pool and pavilion where breakfast was served, as well as lunch and dinner, if chosen. The beach was just down the hill and was serving the hotel, making it more or less private to the guests. Waves a bit strong for smaller children. Sunbeds available and som smaller kiosks serving food and drinks. We really enjoyed our stay.
Cons: The pool area could have some more sunbeds, the few available got quickly occupied.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Staff is so friendly,they try to do the best for you! They made a stay here even better,because you really have no worries about room. Also service is good and the food. On the property are animals and if you love animals you will enjoy, if you dont no worries they are nice.
Cons: The office people,they almost gave us wrong bills for the room and food,so I recommend to check everything twice,just to be sure. Maybe they should learn from the staff(in grey shirts)

Pros: Very secure place with 24h security service.Nice green environment.Nice beach

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Amazing view from the room Nice property with a fellow peacock in the garden Welcoming staff Great location in-between two beautiful beaches (in a walking distance)
Cons: Despite asking, the room was not tidy during our 3-day stay as it should be expected from this price range accommodation. Food is not good value for money (ie breakfast).Go having a breakfast at Fisherman beach ! (;
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We spent amazing eight days in Little Tamarind. It is an amazing place! We had very taste breakfasts and dinners Very friendly staff took care about us for all time Sophia's yoga lessons were very useful. We are sure we will come back again.
Cons: I would recommend improving the building and interior maintenance. For example, the toilet door could not be closed. A drain stank occasionally. The fan was quite noisy at a high frequency. In my experience, these deficiencies are typical for these countries like Sri Lanka, and so I have a great understanding of them.
5.8 Okay
Pros: We really liked the setting, with lots of gardens and a beautiful view. It’s a bit out of Tangalle itself in a mini-fishing community. Walking distance to a few ok beaches (Silent/Silence Beach - not really swimable - and the multi-bayed Fisherman’s Bay - ok for swimming but lots of rubbish on sand). There’s also a beautiful ‘secret’ beach nearby (again, not great swimming due to waves. Locals will be helpful or yell insults depending on who you bump into on the way). It’s a quick 15minute tuk tuk to Hiriketiya and Pehebhiya/Dikwella Beach, both of which we loved. Food good but expensive. Breakfast was ok, papaya heavy fruit salad. We really enjoyed dinner. A bit pricey, but seems to be the way of it along the south coast.
Cons: The intro has a lot of information. Would benefit from having it written down. Also preempted any feedback on bugs etc by mentioning that you’ll get them. Recommend they get bug screens for doors and windows. There is no liquor licence but the hosts will happily get you things you need or want from town when they do the dinner ingredient run. They will then charge you restaurant prices rather than just the cost of the item (we’d be ok if it was plus a little extra for their time/admin/service but it’s a bit rough to charge 200lkr per glass of coke when you asked for a bottle. A bottle coke ended up costing us $7AUD (800lkr). The RRP on the bottle was 220lkr). It’s a bit of a rort. Bring your own beers and drinks from town yourself. The rooms don’t have aircon which is fine we knew that and half our group live in Brisbane so we’re used to the heat. In saying that, the place would benefit from a pedestal fan or two. Of the three ceiling fans, one was great, the other only worked on the slowest setting and the third was rendered ineffectual for sleeping due to the mosquito net over the bed having a nylon top which meant none of the air was circulated through. Air con would be a welcome addition at the price. The wifi was also rubbish with a pass-agg name and password. Found English was an issue when convenient. We asked for taxi to Mirissa with a stop in Talalla for a swim (given beaches by hotel were gross or unswimmable). This was not communicated to the driver who didn’t understand us. So we missed out on this. Unfortunately we left headphones behind so we had to go back for them. We couldn’t work out what it would cost for the hotel to bring to us. We figured it would be easier for us to pay to have them delivered to us by tuk tuk. The driver didn’t understand our question and this was when we realised he wasn’t going to do our requested stop at Talalla.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was spot on a little hard to find but a little paradise behind the green gate. Really close to two unspoilt beaches which is hard to find now in Sri Lanka.Silent beach is perfect! The accommodation is raised on the hill side so probably not very good if you have any mobility issues but the rooms view and food are all top class! The wildlife is amazing monkeys running over the roof tops in the morning plenty of birds reptiles and frogs even saw fireflies in the evenings The host Eli and his team are very helpful. Eli advises me where to go and which times would be best to see the areas. I got up at 5 to go to the Rock Buddhist Temple.Eli arranged transportation and there was only me there fantastic exploring the place without the tourist lol! Overall this is one of the nicest places in Sri Lanka keep up the good work because I know there’s move expansion in the process with your yoga and paddle board activities.
Cons: Every thing was cool
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The view over the ocean from the room was absolutely stunning. This is one of the best value for money places we stayed in Sri Lanka. The host was extremely helpful with providing restaurant and beach tips and organising transport, to both me and my friends (who did not even stay here). In a 5 minutes walk you are down at a beautiful and quiet beach and with a 15 min tuktuk drive you are in the heart of a busy restaurant area.
Cons: Nothing to dislike!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was great!! The style of the hotel is like a traditional design beach house. 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.
Cons: Nothing!!! Everything was just amazing.

Pros: The room was clean and in good conditions. Is on the beach, but there are a lot of currents on that beach.
Cons: They always wanted to do business with us instead of helping. They charges us a scooter 1500LKR when the price is 1000LKR. Same with the TUK TUK, and you are not able to rent it on other place because of the location.

Pros: Fantastic location right on the beach, beautiful views and the sounds of the sea when you wake up in the morning. Fantastic food, the breakfast was one of the best we’ve had in Sri Lanka and we had dinner there one night, very fresh fish, tasty. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond.
Cons: The room itself wasn’t very clean, some sand to be expected in beach side cabana but it was very dusty. There were a few lights in the room but the wooden lampshades made it very dim. You could not read in bed at night.

Cons: Nothing! I would mention to ask for a sea view room or bungalow as some views at the side garden are building works. Bungalow was fantastic and rooms are lovely
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast and food were incredible. I loved the local cuisine and the number of options for such a small place. The design, location, staff, and hospitality were excellent. People were kind, helpful, and seemed to really care about the patrons, staff, and the local environment. Everything in the room worked and the balcony was super spacious and nice. The distance to the beach was so close that we could hear the waves and the beach itself was beautiful, vast, but still not crowded, just right. We found a little swimming hole and a restaurant that was very local, but still clean and was nearby and which was fun. Our son loved playing in the pool and on the beach.
Cons: I wish the breakfast and dinner could be a little earlier/later as we wake up fairly early but that was not a big deal. The road is pretty bumpy and I wish there was an on-site tuk-tuk but again, the fact that the resort is more remote makes up for this. The wi-fi was spotty at times, but that is fine with me on a vacation. The waves are intense, so swimming was a challenge, but do-able for us.
9.6 Excellent

Pros: My mum and I stayed here for two nights and we absolutely loved it. from check in to check out we had a very pleasant experience. Staff are extremely polite and helpful and even the management are fully hands-on. they responded to each our question and request, however busy they were. The food is also great. The breakfast was nice and to my mother's delight there was a cinnamon and fruit oatmeal porridge - that was definitely welcome. The location is superb if you look for a quiet relaxing place. The road to the hotel has a lot of potholes and isn't great but that did not bother us, as once in the property everything was perfect. Thank you to everyone who made our stay brilliant. We would definitely come back, if we are even in Sri Lanka again.
Cons: Nothing really, everything was great.

The taste of food is awesome and the variety of options to choose from is also perfect, if you stay a couple of days.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: A very nice place! We enjoyed every day!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The place is located on a long stretch of an amazing, almost wild beach with barely any people around. We stayed in the bungalow which was good. The food was nice and there was a decent choice though the service was rather slow. It's a very nice, relaxing and secluded place. The owner goes out of his way to help and meet the expectations.
Cons: It's really not a fault of the property but next door there are building works so we were woken up on the New Year's Day at 8:00 by drilling which could carry out through the day. However, you don't hear it if you move away from the pool.
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed here at the end of our trip around Sri Lanka. Good choice, if we have booked this at the beginning of our trip we would have been disappointed with our other choice of accommodation. This was the best place we stayed in whole Sri Lanka. Very spacious rooms. Great pool area. Absolutely the best food we had on our trip. A fusion of Sri Lanka food and western food, a big variety of tasteful dishes. We loved everything. Perfect in every possible way. Stunning sunset on the beach. A good opportunity to watch sea turtles. We will definitely be back. Mr. Nick and his staff made our stay very memorable in every way possible.
Cons: We had to leave.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great hotel with fantastic staff. Amazing breakfast included which is available anytime of the day - perfect for someone like me who prefers brunch to breakfast. Our room was lovely and the outdoor shower with it's own palm tree was a great feature! Buckingham Place was the perfect way to end our holiday in Sri Lanka - lots of R&R. They also organised a lovely birthday celebration with decorations and a cake that was much appreciated.
Cons: Not a big issue and not something that would ever discourage me from recommending or visiting again, but communication could have been better at times, particularly around dinner options. They have a veggie menu which we weren't told about until our second day, despite making it clear one of us was a vegetarian. They are very helpful and will do all they can to accommodate but If you are veggie, I'd recommend asking for a copy of that menu when you arrive to make things easier.

Pros: We loved our stay. Everything was above and beyond. The staff were beautiful, food excellent and facilities spot on. Would highly recommend anyone to stay.

The staff are incredible, their main aim is to meet guests needs and to ensure that each guest feels ‘special’. ‘The only downside for us is that it is isolated. There is nothing but the hotel. Wonderful for a few nights, perhaps a week to totally unwind.
Cons: The rooms are spacious but do need updating with more modern touches , particularly the bathrooms. Lighting and mirrors that have demister properties would be useful. Bedroom furniture is clunky and needs to be of better quality.

Pros: Amazing staff! Fabulous location! Great food!
Cons: The beach is not for swimming but if you walk a little further to the next beach you can swim there. Other than this we could not fault the hotel.
