Poor food, rice was not fresh anymore so we got stomach issues right afterwards. (We had veggy curry), one star for the nice atmosphere (dinner at the beach) and the second for the fried banana dessert.

We stopped there to have a drink and maybe to eat something because of the nice view directly at the ocean. But besides the nice location the rest was awful. You could not drink the milkshake. We just took one sip. Other guests next to us also did not drink their milkshakes. Furthermore it was the first time we experienced...

Gave them laundry in the morning; told them we needed it by 9AM the next morning as we were leaving Tangalle then. They assured us it would be ready. Checked on it that afternoon and it wasn't ready. They also seemed not to remember that we needed it by 9, as they told us to come back after 11 the...

The room was amazing, looked and felt like a tree house, both ends of the room were open to the nature and it really felt like you were in the forest somewhere! Beach was right on the doorstep and the...

The evening beach bbq/buffet is delicious and great value. This was helped by some of the best service we had during our time in Sri Lanka. The head waitress was lovely and very helpful. Also highly recommend the desserts which are huge

We were staying near Sandy's Cabanas and visited again and again. The restaurant is a long way from Tangalle town but well worth the tuk tuk ride. It's on the beach and has indoor and beach tables plus places you can lie down with your drink. The food is gorgeous. We had lunches of dhal, curry, pappadams, pol rotis and...

Ok, I'm a big eater and when I saw the lure of a buffet with lots of Sri Lankan veggie option I had to eat here. But I was beaten by this buffet... Staff serving the buffet were super friendly but the food itself, whilst varied, was pretty mediocre at best. The spinach dish tasted like the ground it was...

Perfect spot, right on the beach. Open the door from your cabana and your on the beach. Restaurant is great, the curry buffet is super. The rooms are simple but cosy. Everyone is very service minded. 😀

A Cabana at Sandy's place was the most beautiful accommodation we had during our whole vacation in Sri Lanka. Nice host, friendly staff, beautiful cabanas, stunning beaches, great breakfast and dinner with delicious Sri Lankan food. Absolutely relaxing! We can recommend this place 100%
