We booked this place last minute and only for a night. We regretted booking only one night immediately as soon as we pulled up. It is right on the beach with hammocks and lounge chairs to relax in. The water near the resort is not swimmable as the current is so strong. But there is a spot 2 minute walk...

We booked the top room which is on top of a three storey building (one room x floor) and it's well worth the extra money. All 3 rooms comes with an large balconies with comfortable wooden chairs. The plus for the top floor is that you have absolute privacy as no one can see into. Also, as you are high...

We return to this place year after year and never get tired of the view from our first floor room. Although there has been a massive increase in the number of B&B's in the area this place is still Number One as It has the best position on this beach. The rooms are large, and airy, En suite with H&C....

We booked a room at this place 2 days in advance and got a booking confirmation from the owner directly via telephone. Upon arrival we were told he gave away the room to somebody else who booked afterwards. We had to search for a new place, which is especially annoying if you take into account the remote location of this...

Rooms don't get cleaned each night but this seems to be a common theme throughout Sri Lanka. The breakfasts also aren't anything to write home about( 1 egg fried egg per person!) so we skipped breakfast on the second day. We ate at the hotel in the evening on the first night and the devilled dishes were really tasty and...

We spent 4 nights here and it was beautifully relaxing. They have one building with 3 floors and 3 rooms at the front and I think 2 or 3 more at the back. The room was not the best equipped, decorated or cleaned. There were about 4 times as many light switches as lights! We did get 3 times a...

We came as a group as my friend wanted to get married on the beach. I was recommended to come to this place. I was not disappointed.

This accommodation is just by the Marakolliya Beach. There are palms in the garden and then after, the pure, stunning beach spreads. Additionally, just right where the place is, the Lagoon joins the sea! There is nothing more to desire. The staff of the hotel was really friendly and helped us organize a small party for our friends and even...

We loved Tangalle and were happy with our stay at Lonely Beach. The rooms are very basic but are clean and made up for by the proximity of the beautiful empty beach. It's right next to a lagoon that you can't swim in but is very picturesque. We really liked the breakfasts; we were keen to try the rice and...

A bit of a wobbly start as when our driver called for directions he was told the place was closed for refurbishment and we couldn't stay there. We had a booking through booking.com so went to check it out first hand. We arrived and were able to stay and showed a lovely clean room. Resort was empty. No restaurant open...
