We truly enjoyed our stay here. Our room was full of light, the staff was amazing, and we listened to the sound of the ocean while we slept. The bed was long with a square (not round-top) mosquito net, which is so nice for my 6'1" husband. The part of the beach safe for swimming was close by. Wonderful.

I spent three nights to Chandi Gaya Beach Guesthouse. I was already a bit disappointed by the many hostels in sri lanka. What I found in Chandi Gaya Beach Guesthouse, was the long missed Hostel life and excellent service. I was there during the second week of may (off season), so almost all shops and restaurants were closed. But I...

Went to Gayana in a desperate evening search, after being let down by another overbooked property in Tangalle. On the recommendation of my tuk tuk driver, I met the hotel manager and bartered for the only room they had left. Paid and went up to find the most shockingly filthy hotel room I've ever seen. Only had a single lamp,...

My partner & I stayed for 3 nights. We paid 3500lkr for a room with AC and sea view. Great value for what it was! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wifi wasn't great though. We didn't really eat at the hotel- Tangalle town is just a 10 minute stroll away & there are amazing cheap, local places to eat....

I stayed one night here with a friend. We got non A/C room for reasonable price. Their service was excellent. I can be happy as a Sri Lankan traveler about this hotel. Food is average. It is faced to the beach. Room was good. I can recommend this place for someone looking for a good place for reasonable price. Then...
