Lovely boutique hotel right in-front of the beach. Room was spacious and unique. It was 2 storey room with the bed on the upper layer. The food was good. The property needed some maintenance, it looks a bit old. Overall I had an enjoyable stay.
We stayed here late January/ February for about 10 days; certainly alot longer than most of the other guests who only seemed to stay for a few days at most. I have to admit to being a little disappointed when we first arrived; it is in need of some TLC etc. BUT the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff soon made up for the initial disappointment. They are what made our stay special, we did a number of trip (Yala, sea turtles, lagoon trip, galle fort etc) our driver and guide was superb, learnt so much from him about life and culture in Sri Lanka. One of the bar staff (so sorry, can't remember his name!) even came to the hotel to pick my husband up on his motorcycle and take him to a local festival one evening on his day off! The beach is to die for, definitely one of my happy places. Goes on for miles and hardly anyone on it. It is a bit of a scramble to get to it, but not too bad. There are a few places in each direction along the beach to get good food and a drink (recommend Jungle Beach bar) Enjoyed seeing the new 'towel art' daily too! When all this virus madness is over I really really hope to be able to visit again.…
We originally booked to watch the test match in Galle, but this was called offf the day before we travelled. We discussed the current situation and decided to go based on the fact there had been only 1 recorded case of the virus on the island and that had been in January. The place is aa little tired and not as big as pictures seem it to be, bt that does not matter one bit. The location is great, right on the beach and the stafff are fantastic. Rooms are spacious and cleaned every day. The food is very good with a reasonable choice for breakfast and evening meal,, we stayed half board as we tend to eat a snack at lunchtime. Around 20 minutes by tuk tuk to the fort and lighthouse in Galle. We had to cut the holiday short by 5 days due to thwe ongoing situation and the last 3 days we were curfewed in the hotel. This was very traumatic, 32 degreee heat, unbroken sunshine, on the beach and they had r-stocked the bar before we went into lockdown. We cant wait to go back :)…
A quaint boutique resort, about 30 mins away from Galle town. Loved the quiet location, very peaceful and serene. The rooms are spacious, beautiful, overlooking the sea. Excellent service, very friendly and helpful. May not be ideal for families who need activities for kids, but great for people who want to just unwind. Had an awesome stay.
This was an amazing trip! There were so many highlights, to start with the accommodation was great and the view was amazing from the rooms, the food served at the hotel restaurant was lip smacking and the price was very low when compared to other restaurants near by. The crab curry served at the hotel was fantastic. The people at the hotel were really generous depicting Sri Lanka culture. To mention few employees at Cantaloupe Ranjit was an AMAZING host, he took care of us and was very attentive to the group and had us laughing always. It was an amazing experience that we as a family would always cherish. This hotel is highly recommended to families who want some personal space and there is no much crowd. The hotel is beautiful and the view from the room are breath taking. Must visit place.…
My husband and I stayed here for a wedding and it’s a lovely hotel right on the beach. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable - the only downside is the low shower pressure (not a deal breaker at all but something we noticed). The staff were friendly and helpful, always available to answer our questions. Would stay here again!
Stayed here for a night on tour round Sri Lanka and it was prob the least favourite. Smallest room we had, the decor is in need of some tlc, especially the bathroom. Strange set up with the toilet position and shower was just ok. They serve lunch and dinner here as well, but we only had breakfast, which was nice. The barman that was working on the night also served us breakfast and he was very helpful and friendly. Right on the beach, but not really accessible because of the rocks outside. It’s about 5k outside the nearest town but there are always tuk tuks outside which are very cheap. Maybe $2 each way.
This is a lovely hotel, not the best we stayed in in Sri Lanka but it was lovely. The staff made up for that though as they were so helpful & friendly & couldn’t do enough for us. Breakfast was good here.
What a wonderful find, the most lovely room with mezzanine floor bedroom! So happy we decided to eat on the balcony of our room as the view is beautiful! The food is incredible and the staff are fantastic! enjoying our stay! Thank you!
We stayed here for our anniversary / engagement celebration as a special occasion and Mirshad went above and beyond to ensure our stay was very special. He deserves a huge special mention for his kindness and he always puts guests first, which was very much appreciated. Thank you Mirshad. The food and drink was also delicious at this hotel. The fish tacos and prawn tagliatelle were particularly good.
