Very lush and tranquil setting with a small but very pleasant pool that we swam in every day. Rooms were nicely furnished and had extra little touches like spotlight reading lamps. Owners Raelene and Anil were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Some guests wonder why I ask for a contact number and email address. This is why- on holdiay it is easy to forget a few things and sometimes they are important. When a guest checks out at Moonstone Villas, our staff immediately do a thorough check of the room for left items - and luckily we found your camera and...

Would definitely recommend this plays if you go to Tangalle. It's close to a more private beach than the main beach. Our room was big, nice and clean. The owner was very helpful and cared about her guests. Tangalle itself was not my favorite (would not recommend), therefore I was very happy that we lived at such a nice place...

Thank you for your comments. I am happy that you enjoyed the beach just 100 meters across the road from us. It is a nice quiet beach and I see in another review that the snorkeling is now good again as the coral has regrown after the tsunami. Small local towns are not for everyone, so i am also pleased...
