Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First, let me begin this review with the service that we got from the staff. It was absolutely amazing to see such hospitality given by the staff who was very friendly and very helpful. The hotel was constantly clean as they were cleaning the place and kept it the same until we left the place. The hotel view was absolutely splendid and amazing. A morning walk in the sea made my stay truly special. Also, about 200m away is a surf poin were you will be able to keep your self active. The food was also great and I really enjoied it. This place is highly recomended by me and I sure you will have a great time at this place. Also I belive for the service and the value the price is deffintly a winner. P.s: Please dont walk in the coreles baer feet as there might be sea erges that might spike your leg so please be carefull and happy stay

This hotel was such a relief after out last one in SriLanka, we stayed three nights and I wish it were more. The owner and staff did everything they could for us and nothing was to much trouble. The room and hotel we very clean with all the necessary services. The garden and room had magnificent sea views, the pool was large and new. A real treat.

We recently spent 10 days at Ocean crest and what a fabulous 10 days it was. Kushantha and his team were wonderful, they made us feel very special "like family" I mentioned it was my wife's birthday at breakfast and they surprised her after dinner with a beautiful cake and a happy birthday song. The hotel itself was in a great location, Waters edge a 5 min stroll into Ahangama and resident Tuk Tuk driver Newn always on hand or 2 min away ready to take us any place we cared to go, for a very reasonable price and safe every time. Brekky everyday was beautiful juice, fresh fruit and yoghurt toast and eggs and a couple of days sri lankan breakfast all tasty + coffee and tea. We had dinner in a few times including a complimentary dinner, always tasty, and there are plenty of other options close by both local and more tourist style pizza, seafood and more all good especially the local. We didn't do much sightseeing this trip as we were quite happy to stay local as everything we wanted was close by. The couple of times we did go adventuring, train into Galle and the tea plantation kushantha organised whatever we needed. We stayed in the suite on level 2 big bedroom with a bed sit area and a massive balcony as I said we didn't need to go anywhere sunsets on the balcony ocean at the door step with plenty of waves and a nice swimming beach 100 yards walk. I would stay again in a second and have already recommended to a couple of friends, I think any one would be hard pressed not to enjoy this place.

We had a large comfortable room on the second floor with a lovely balcony and an amazing view of the sea and stilt fishermen. the air con worked really well and it was super clean. Breakfast was delicious. The pool was lovely and it was great to be able to step from the hotel garden straight onto the beach. We ate in one night and the food was good. There are several other great choices within a few minutes walk. We were very glad we were based on Ahangama rather than Mirissa as it was much quieter which suited us better.

We stayed two nights in a Deluxe Room. We had a stonning view on the ocean from a nice balcony. Room was very clean and spacoius. You do not hear the noise from the street, only the ocean. Breakfast is served in the garden close to the Pool and the ocean. Breakfast is usual way we got breakfast in Sri lanka. I would recommend the omelette. The manager and the staff were friendly and helpfull. We can recommand the Hotel.

This hotel has everything you need if you're looking for a relaxing, high quality place to enjoy your holiday. Small hotel run by Sanath (manager) and his team of very friendly colleagues. We had a room on the first floor with a beautiful sea view. Ocean Crest also has a great pool, high quality lunch and dinner options and a location right on the beach. In the near are there are plenty of local / more Western restaurants available (also within walking distance; some nice places on the beach). We ended up staying here for 9 nights (planned for 2 in the beginning!). Don't miss Ocean Crest if you're in Ahangama!

Our family spent the last few days of our Sri Lankan holiday at the Ocean Crest which is well located at the other end of the beach right in front of a reef break good for intermediate to good surfers. Beginner will find their spot 400m away. The rooms are well designed and the pool are works well. This is a tiny hotel so when looking to socialise with people or get food in minutes look elsewhere. The main waiter did not talk much but was very efficient, the manager talked mostly when asking us to leave a review on tripadvisor... All rooms face the sea and should prove fine. The rooms by the pool lack a bit of privacy.

A real gem of a hotel. Small, only 8 rooms, with the most perfect location on the ocean, with steps down to the beautiful, long, uncrowded beach. Staying here for a week was a real highlight of our three week tour of Sri Lanka. The manager, Sanath, and his wonderful staff could not do enough for us and organised private transfers from and to Colombo airport and tuktuks to take us to (and bring us back from) Galle, the local tea plantation and Mirissa. (Mirissa a huge disappointment, by the way – crowded, dirty beach – and we were glad to get back “home” to Ahangama). We ate wonderful, fresh meals in the hotel most evenings, under palm trees, at a table in the garden down by the sea. Magic! Breakfast was also delicious – freshly squeezed juices, large pots of coffee or tea, plates of fresh fruits, eggs, toast and marmalade. Our room was cleaned and freshened up every day, with fresh towels and pool towels, flip flops and bathrobes; the air con was quiet and easy to adjust; a large comfortable bed with good linen and a good shower; and a huge private terrace with sunbeds and a view over the pool and the ocean. We slept like babies, lulled to sleep by the waves. Fishermen’s stilts (though empty as the fishing season had just finished) right outside the hotel and the surfers were out by 6.30 every morning opposite our terrace. The beach is soft, golden sand and the sea shallow enough to enjoy jumping around in the big waves. Great for surfing, families and all ages and for a lovely quiet walk while enjoying the sunset. We were really sad to leave and we would recommend this hotel to anyone who loves simple, good quality hotels with an emphasis on comfort, relaxation and 5 star service.
