Calm location, and rooms reasonably equipped. That is the best that can be said. The owner was the most dishonest we found in 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. Cheated us with the price of fish (do not order any food there without having the price agreed and written!), finding excuses to not to give us wifi password (adverticed for free!)...

Dear guests, full and fresh fish has a daily price, please ask before ordering! To our guests we always give the passwort of the wifi, but sometimes the conection is not working very well in Sri Lanka, very sorry!

We stayed in this guesthouse for 3 nights. The location is nice, but you can get many other alternative places for a much cheaper price. The room was OK, but certainly not great (we only experienced hot water once and there were ants everywhere in the bathroom). Owners seem friendly atr first, but then you realize they only care about...

Dear guests! "As you call it in the forest, the call is coming back." And yes, the Ibis Restaurant is more expensive then other places, but the food is fresh and has a very good quality.

This guest house is everything you could ask for in Tangalle. The staff are incredibly friendly, the food is fantastic and the rooms are clean and comfortable. We spend two days lying on their daybeds, enjoying the sun and the sand and we could have done that for at least two more! Highly recommend.

Stayed in 2nd week of November in the first room on the upper floor of the main building. Double bed was huge and comfortable. The one snag was the one light was positioned such that reading in bed was difficult. Food was good although prices were slightly higher than places nearer town. Although swimming was not recommended except at the...

My friend and I stayed at Ibis for three nights and would have stayed longer if we could have. The rooms were clean and spacious and the food was delicious. Our days were spent walking along the beautiful beaches, reading on the sunbeds, eating fresh fruit platters in very comfy cabanas and playing table tennis - what more could you...

We spent four nights here, one more than we had planned because it was so good. We stayed in a cabana next to the guesthouse with a great view of the beach. It was very clean and well fitted out. This is a quiet spot about two kilometers from the town and the only real drawback is that swimming isn't...

We loved this guesthouse set right on a beautiful beach. We rented a beach cottage which was charming surrounded by palms. We could hear the surf all night. Bed had a mosquito net and was comfortable. There were many hammocks on the beach as well as actual beds with Canopies right on the beach. I loved these. The restaurant was...

Perfect location right on the beach, quiet place, big room with really lagre bed, very comfortable. We were able to catch Wi-Fi signal on terrace outside of our room right above restaurant. After all guests finish their dinners (usualy between 9-10 p.m.) restaurant closes, which is good because it is quiet, but it is pity they turn Wi-Fi off too....

We were meant to stay two or three nights, but ended up staying for eight nights. Friendly owners. Very good food. Yes there are room for improvments eg deckchairs and matresses for sunbeds, but why focus on the little things that are wrong, when so much is right with this place. Service with a smile from early morning to late...
