Excellent staff, food and location. We were lucky enough to stay in the King Coco room with a balcony overlooking the pool and a bit more room which was very welcome. Great to be able to walk down to the beach and just relax by the pool.

Coco Tangalla is a 5 minute walk from the fairly shabby centre of Tangalle. It's located on a busy road, but once inside the grounds are nice and the sound of wind and waves masks much of the road noise. Fairly often sounds of barking dogs from the neighbours and strays on the street. There's a pool and pleasant sea...

We were a couple and two lady friends who stayed 3 nights in King Coco and adjoining Arica. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The breakfasts were brilliant and likewise the dinners. They have a great team working here willing to help whenever they can. Highly recommended

What a wonderful 5 night break after travelling around Sri Lanka. It's so relaxing looking out to sea and, while the beach immediately in front is not good for swimming, the pool is lovely and there's a good swimming beach just up the road with a couple of good beach restaurants. However what makes it so special is the friendliness...

This is a fantastic boutique hotel in what really is a pretty scruffy and busy town. The staff are brilliant the food lovely. We booked early so had the big room with private balcony, great. The guy who wrote that it was very like other five star hotels is talking rubbish, this place only has five rooms and you get...

So dear reader you have been round the Cultural Triangle, visited a tea factory and perhaps seen a leopard in the Yala National Park. You are now on the hunt for a cool, laid back hotel on the Indian Ocean where you can chill out with a Lion beer under the hotel's magestic palms. Look no further than the Coco...

We stayed at Coco after a gushing recommendation from a friend. Thanks Peter, you were spot on. Coco is situated on a fairly dangerous section of the busy Tangalle road. Have no fear, once inside the property you are unaware of the hustle and bustle outside. An attentive door keeper allows cars in to Coco, and also assists when you...

Coco Tangalle was by far the best place we stayed in Sri Lanka. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Fantastic food. Pool side candlelit dinner and a perfect sea view. Total bliss. Been raving about it to everyone!

This was a stunning hotel with impeccable service. We came and stayed for 2 nights and were really impressed even beyond the reviews. The hotel is set right on the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean and immaculate gardens surrounding the property. It was the perfect retreat after a week on the roads driving around Sri Lanka.
