Highly Recommended, Lovely Staff

If you are visiting Tangalle then Frangipani's is the place to stay. I thought I was only going to stop for one night on my way east but ended up staying almost a week- and only left because I had to get to Colombo to catch a flight! The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the location beautiful. Although there is litter elsewhere on Tangalle's beaches, the beach in front of Frangipani's is always impeccably clean. There is moderate to strong surf (that makes it more fun, right?) but once you get past the breaking waves the water is lovely with no currents to worry about. The food is delicious (try the pumpkin soup!) There is a slackline, hammocks, boogie boards, frisbees, balls, wooden puzzles and more.

The staff is what really makes Frangipani's stand out. The owner is very helpful- book activities through him to ensure cheap prices and trustworthy drivers. Everyone who works at Frangipani's is friendly, resapectful, and fun. I am a solo traveler and Sri Lanka is traveled mostly by couples and families. These guys always made sure I had someone to swim with, games to play, dinner partners, and good conversation. Every night they would sit up late playing karrom with me and the other guests. They even taught me to climb a palm tree for the coconuts!

I would definitely recommend staying at Frangipani's, it is worth every cent.

One of the best places

Located walking distance west of Tangalle this place is like a post card of of "Bounty Beach" with palm tress hanging over the beach. The Beach is not child friendly because it is steep with waves. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was standard. We were there slightly out of season (late April) so there were not many perople there. It was as close to perfect as you can get.

Room Tip: During the season you should get there early

ok. but overpriced laundry service and slow service
lisberta [TA], , Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar

our stay was fine - the rooms were large but quite humid, we had a nice view of the beach, and the restaurant served decent to boring food.

the place, however, lacks a proper service attitude. staff is slow and "chilled", we usually waited for quite some time to get food or drinks. in addition, it took staff more than two days to do our laundry (delaying or forgetting that we actually gave them stuff to wash) AND in the end charged us 4000 Rupees (!!!!!) for the laundry. Our clothes were neither folded nor ironed, but stuffed into plastic bags like rubbish.

Cockroaches in our room
Anouk L [TA], ,

Room 7 has cockroaches who have nested in the bed. First night we freaked out, called the staff and they laughed at us and told other guest the other day (while laughing and pointing at us) about the cockroaches in our room. 2th night we demanded another room because the cockroaches walked over us at night. We demanded a discount and were able to get 35% off. But unacceptable how they handled to whole situation.

Just as beautiful the second time around

Stayed at Frangipani for the second time since 2013. They have added more rooms since I was last there; just as clean, spacious and well-appointed. Its a beautiful place with good food and super friendly staff. The beach is great for swimming and playing in the waves; or you can sit and enjoy a drink/food and watch the local fishermen hauling in their catch. Love going to sleep listening to the waves crashing against the shore.

lovely little spot
Hotpotot [TA], , Dublin, Ireland

We stayed here for two nights and found nothing we could fault. I was surprised to read some of the other negative reviews as I thought this place to be so relaxing and comfortable. Staff were friendly and efficient, food was fresh and tasty, rooms were large and clean. The restaurant is right on the beach and its so picturesque day and night looking out. There is lovely art dotted around the buildings which add colour and creativity to the scenery also. We were made feel very welcome and happy to find this little corner of the world for our two nights in Tangalle.

Lovely place

This was my second visit to Frangipani. Again, I had a fantastic time there. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The food was really fresh and delicious. The staff were really friendly and made sure that we had everything that we needed. I would really recommend staying here if you want to chill out for a few days.

Stay away from this place
Leonida T [TA], ,

We were some friends traveling with children and we booked this place because the pictures showed a small and cosy beach villa. The place was actually lot bigger with three buildings really packed together, which gave the place a feeling of package tour hotel. We got one of the new rooms, that was spacious and looked nice on the first glance. Inside, the room smelled like mold and in the shower the mold was visible. The place did not have mosquito nets why we could not open windows during night, and there were no doors between room and bathroom, no other ventilation, which made the air really humid and unhealthy. We could not lock our room from the inside. In five days nobody from the staff ever attended the room in any way! The beach right outside the hotel was filthy and polluted by a leaking septic tank coming from the hotel. We could not let the kids play there. The breakfast was nice, and the service friendly, but so ineffective. The dinner was a disaster with burned and dry fish as an example. On the plus side was the friendly manager making no fuss about us wanting to leave earlier.

This was my 2nd stay at this hotel, my first 2 years ago was fantastic so decided to return for another stay.....
Good Point right next to beach and quiet area.
The owner is a lovely guy.

Bad Points
Room not ready by 5pm, waited ages for towels, service was appalling no plates cleaned away, all the staff seemed too busy helping build the extension.
Staff (some beach boys) not to be trusted,,, do not leave valuables near them.

Dangerous,,,, without any notice or visible information the hotel doors are looked at 11.45pm,,, so no entrance after that time,,,
Highly Dangerous if you decide to go out for dinner and are unaware of this rule,,,,

Relaxing and stunning location
paul v [TA], , Haarlem, The Netherlands

Only staid for one night, but it was very nice. During the day you will be able to walk along the complete beach, take a swim in the sea and enjoy the perfect temperature combined with a nice breeze. During the evening a nice jam session with bob marley style made the fresh grilled fish even tasted better. Good recommendation for everybody after your coming from a national park or Ella....
