The Ibis was a great place to relax after a hectic ten days in Sri Lanka. Overlooking a sandy beach and crashing surf the front of the property is dotted with sunbeds, umbrellas and hammocks The verandah contained a number of tables and most were occupied at various points during the day. Pleasantly busy, but not crowded with a mix...

We quickly felt at home at this nice guesthouse. The service was very friendly and efficient. The room we had in a bungalow was spacious and clean except for a dead gecko and ants, though I did not imagine a bungalow being a two-story concrete building. The location directly on the beach is very nice, though it is dangerous to...

This agreeable mid-price guesthouse is situated in a quiet location about 30 minutes walk from Tangalle, beyond the strip of budget accommodations along Medaketiya beach and close to where the long, beautiful and less developed Marakolliya beach begins. A variety of rooms, with and without AC, are available in villas and bungalows, set in a shady garden. There is wi-fi...

We only had one night booked at Ibis, but were so impressed by this relaxed place next to a beautiful uncrowded beach that we asked to stay longer. Unsurprisingly they were fully booked (this was around new year so high season), but luckily someone cancelled so we ended up staying a week. The food was great and cooked in an...

After being presented with slop for a meal at Guyana hotel and restaurant we went by tuk tuk to the Ibis. The meal was excellent and the welcome we received from the owners and staff very warm.We wished that we had stayed here rather than at the Guyana. It has an excellent location right on the beach and appeared perfect...

The low point of my trip to Sri Lanka was having to climb in and out of the greasy mosquito nets at Ibis that looked as if they had never been washed and had the god knows what of many a traveller on them. The bed sheets, towels and pillows smelt musty and damp. The rooms were dark and dingy....

Dear Guests, I think there was a misunderstanding in the price for the taxi. The Ibis Guesthouse is not cheating their guests. The bedsheets and the towels are washed after every check out of guests – don´t worry! Also the mosquito-nets are washed regularly.

I went to this place based and good reviews I had in guide books. I had a room for 4500Rps without breakfast. Room was ideal with a great view. Place is ideally located and everything has been made so that you just want to stay there. Staff is nice BUT I had a bad experience. They arranged a driver for...

It is run by a sri lankan man and his german wife. The best feature of this resort is the surroundings - it is right on the beach but there are palms everywhere so when you look out of your room you feel secluded. The food was delicious - we at at other places on the beach but ended up...

Under the surface of a lovely decorated beach hotel we unfortunately experienced an unhelpful and aggressive hotel owner. On our first night at 11 pm we thought we had lost our room key. We had to wake up the owner. At first he refused to provide any assistance. When we finally found the key he completely freaked out and his...
