The owner is very friendly and he has international experience and knows many languages, especially German. He is so entertaining and the staff as well. The sea view rooms and the beach restaurant gives the complete ocean recreational easy stay.

You can even order icecream, very nice and everyone is so friendly and sweet and make you feel at home. We have been here...

The room was nice, good price/quality ratio for the area (Tangalle). The place is very chilled out, right at the beach, with hammocks. Nice food options like Sri Lanka breakfast and roti. This is one of the places to chill out at the beach for a good price. Recommended!

The best location in Tangalle / Medaketiya! Walkable into town but far enough along the beach that it enjoys it's own beach area. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgable about the surrounding area and onward trips. The kitchen serves up great food and drinks throughout the day, and what better place to enjoy it that the seating area...

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!
