It was difficult to find a place to watch football in Tangalle, and finally we found a great place. This is the only place we found in to watch Premier League. Friendly people, cold beer and nice place close to the beach! I really recommend this place!

We had a lovely short stay at Starfish. The manager was friendly and helpful, and a great cook! He arranged a trip to Rekawa for us to see the turtles, and was a great host. The driver he booked for us was also great and chatty. Room was clean and tidy, and location by the sea was perfect. Would definitely...

“The rooms are really all similar, found the smaller ones to be best value but the upstairs ones would have been nice for a view. All have the wonderful sound of ocean waves crashing on the beach”
