We ate dinner here 3 times during our 2 week stay in Galle. I had read the excellent reviews and we were not disappointed.

My husband enjoyed the jumbo tiger prawns twice and a fillet steak on another occasion. Both dishes were very good. One of the starters was a taster plate consisting of marlin, prawns and chicken all lightly coated with crumb and fried, absolutely delicious. I had a Sri Lankan curry which consisted of 9 curries plus poppadoms etc. It arrived on a huge tray and was enough for about 3 people. The beer was cold and the arrack cocktails (sunrise I think) was amazing.

We were waited on by Dileepa who took very good care of us. We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff and the manager showed us some of the rooms as we expressed interest in staying there another time. It’s a beautiful hotel and the rooms look gorgeous and spotlessly clean.

Thank you for the great experience.

Good location close to Galle Fort and right on the beach. Wonderful staff. Room large and spacious. Perk: Two slices of cake or fruit every day left for me in the room after the daily cleaning. Such a nice touch. The only issue was the smell in the bathroom, which I seem to find in most all Asian hotels I have traveled to.

We stayed in cocobay for one night in August 2018. They gave us very refreshing welcome drink. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They got decent choices in the food menu and it was average. We really enjoyed the ocean view. They also got a spa which provide you in room service. There were some yoga sessions for those who are interesting to try. The room we stayed was clean, spacious and love the deco in the room as well as in the hotel. WiFi connection is really good and they got international TV channels to enjoy and relax while watching TV. Nice balcony area where you can enjoy a cup of tea just outside the room. I really enjoyed the jacuzzi in the bathroom as well. Overall we had a good time there with comfort. Only draw back was there is no elevator for the top floor rooms. You have to use the stairs to go to the top floor. I stayed there with my parents and they both had difficulties to clim up the stairs. If they had elevator it would be the perfect place for any age people to stay. However, I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for comfort and relaxation.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for the encouraging review which is sincerely appreciated.
We have not installed an elevator since the resort consists of the ground floor and 2 other floors. We will however consider your comments and perhaps install an elevator in the future.

We stayed for 4 nights and loved it! Prageeth (operations manager) Dileepa and Dilip were amazing and made our stay so special. We stayed in Colombo, Kandy and Pinnawalla but we fell in love with Sri Lanka because of our time at Coco Bay. Unawatuna is our favourite place here. La Mer restaurant is super but we ate way tooooo much, about 5kgs heavier now! Thanks for an amazing stay we will be back!

Room Tip: Loved the private pool

This was my 2nd visit to Cocobay and it is a lovely quiet hotel in a beautiful setting with excellent staff. The food is excellent and there is a wide choice for all palates, and is very reasonably priced.
