This place is just tremendous. Great rooms, great location, great food, great staff. Beach is smallish and rocky but pool is great and there is a better beach within 10 minute walk. So is town. Other food options are good and close but do not underestimate the CoCo kitchen. Service, service and more service !!!!

Excellent in all aspects - location, staff, food, all was perfect - even down to the coconut palm growing through the room in our bathroom. The perfect place to unwind and relax after spending 2 weeks touring around the beautiful island of Sri Lanka

This is a small boutique property on a lovely beach with a simple but picturesque pool overlooking the ocean. We stayed in the King Coco room which was the best with its own balcony and unique bathroom. We loved the staff and service. Had an awsm there!

Beautiful property. The staff has an amazing attention to detail - they were very kind. The food was also amazing. The pool was great too. Only downside is that it is not very walkable. It's on a busy street which is dangerous to walk on. Also - the beach outside the hotel is rocky and not good for swimming.

My family and I spent 4 fabulous days in this wonderful hotel. We felt at home, something unusual in hotels. Excellent food, rooms and swimming pool, but the most important, excellent service!!! If you are going to Sri Lanka i strongly recommend you to stop in Coco Tangalla!
