We ordered food and took over an hour and a half to arrive. The food quality wasn't great and one of the orders was incorrect. The staff were fine but very young and disorganised. I wouldn't recommend!

This is a place that just makes you happy! The spacious bungalows are situated in a wild garden with coconut palm trees and a moderate level of wild life. The 5 buildings are situated right at the lagoon which conveys a very calm atmosphere. The food served for breakfast, lunch and dinner is authentic, delicious and fairly priced. Some of...

This place is a gem! Perfect price/quality. Good location, not expensive near beach. Just a short and beautiful 6 minute walk. The people (especially the cooks) how run the place are the reason we want to go back. 4 or 5 little cabanas on the mangrove but I experienced it as a lake. Really friendly people. Helpful and honest. And...

Was a nice quiet place in the outback. You need a ride to get there or it's a long walk. Especially at nights a bit scary. But a really wonderful place. Thank you for the service guys, it was a great stay over

Have been here twice the last couple of months and I have to say: brilliant accommodation! The rooms are very clean and every room has it's own charme. Beautiful scenery directly located at the lagoon, you can have breakfast and dinner on a higher platform just above the river. Only little walk (3 mins) to the Beach and it's definitely...

Had an awesome stay at the coconut island! Staff was really friendly, the Cook was amazing (what a curry!), dad-cat is the Best cat ever, canoes are available which is a nice way of Exploring the lagoon. Also the beach right next to the cabañas are definetly the Best beach in Tangalle area.

Had an absolutely lovely visit here. The cabanas are really well spaced out and so you feel really separate from everyone else. The room itself was great, with a lovely bathroom. There is lots of wildlife there which was great and we saw various lizards and a frog on the walls in our room. The hotel also served some great...

Situated 200m from the ocean, the location is great, the cabanas are clean and the kitchen is very good. Gayan is responsible and a nice person. He can arrange for you to tour Sri Lanka by chauffeur driven car or take you anywhere by tuk-tuk. You can even rent a kayak.....

“All rooms are really nice. Great privacy and with a beautiful view to the lagoon. Be aware, that if you are a light sleeper, it could be an idea to choose the 1st floor room as we had (some really cute) dogs hanging out and barking quite loud, at our terrace in the ground floor, every night.”
