The location is great, majority of staff friendly. Very bland food, extremely overpriced. And worst of all, you have to wait forever fir the food to be served. Go out, take the first restaurant you see and you will have a better deal. Not recommended.

Hotels exists out of 2 buildings. One at the beach, one other side of small road. We had room at beach and was really relaxed with hammock and beds for us at our balcony.

Everyone working here is happy! The food was fresh and reasonably priced. We enjoyed a pizza here (although the large is not very big and can be easily eaten by one person) Highly recommend

We stayed here for 3 nights. The restaurant is located on the beach but the food is overpriced , serving small portions of snack bar style eats. Service is hit and miss . There are better options in the area.

Probably the worst rotti in Sri Lanka. It looked more like a pancake with a little filling and it was cold. The seafood noodles and rice were without any taste and the fish was hard and very dry. The service was friendly but that's it. We wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

Place is just great for us. Close to beach, fishermans taking nets out from sea. This hotel in middle of everything is just wonderful way to get known of Tangalle. Hotel rooms are clean and quiet, only wawes can be hear at night time. Enjoy ;)

Thank teemu a
