Friendly staff, great value.
kpaynie5 [TA], , Melbourne, Australia

My partner & I stayed for 3 nights. We paid 3500lkr for a room with AC and sea view. Great value for what it was! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wifi wasn't great though. We didn't really eat at the hotel- Tangalle town is just a 10 minute stroll away & there are amazing cheap, local places to eat. Lots of nice places along the beach for a drink too. Enjoy!

Good place to stay with satisfactory service
nir0sh [TA], , Colombo, Sri Lanka

I stayed one night here with a friend. We got non A/C room for reasonable price. Their service was excellent. I can be happy as a Sri Lankan traveler about this hotel. Food is average. It is faced to the beach. Room was good. I can recommend this place for someone looking for a good place for reasonable price. Then it is situated close to Tangalle city (only 500m walking). If you need can get food from out side for lesser price.

pleasant alternative
rinabohland [TA], , Wien, Österreich

everything is clean, spacious and nice. You will have everything you need, evan hot water - which is not available in general in Tangalle. BUT it is old fashioned. The hotel itself is not beautiful, but very old fashioned. But you face the beach, and - as others wrote - the boys that work there are very, very nice. We did not eat there, as we only stayed one night, but the fresh mixed fruit juice was very good. If you're not up for luxury, absolutely stay there.

Nice young staff
[TA], , Ljubljana, Slovenia

We stayed here for 4 nights. We were traveling in a group of 5 and me and my partner needed a room for two. The other 3 booked a room in the hotel building by the sea on the condition that we can get a room in the road side hotel building (owned by the same person) for 1000 Rs without A/C and breakfast, also no hot water and very basic accommodation with a kingsize bed and very old bathroom. Breakfast was 500 Rs per and was ok. The usual toast buyer and jam, juice, tea/cofee. It was funny that in the menu it said 5 toasts and when you ordered 1 breakfast you got 4 toasts, when ordering 2 you got 9 toast. What was nice is that we could eat directly on the beach, priceless. The staff were all boys of very young age looked around about 16-21. They were all very kind boys. Carried our bags and such. The beach is very pretty but with big waves which was very fun but probably a no no for older people and small children.

Positive experience
[TA], ,

We originally stayed in a nearby hotel but left because we were dissatisfied. We came across Gayana while walking along the beach at night and the staff were incredibly helpful and the price of the room was half of what we paying a few hotels down. The room was basic but had everything we required and it was very clean, with a view of the beach. The staff organised tuctuc drivers and tours as we required and always for a reasonable price. The food produced by the restaurant was good and served right on the beach which was lovely setting to dine.

beautiful setting
rangyhulu [TA], , West Chester, Pennsylvania

i had the pleasure of staying at gayana hotel on and off from february until end of may 2013. The rooms are large with fantastic scenes-lush,colorful variety of stunning tropical plants, the ocean and a short walk to town for food-although their food is excellent as well! The beach is large with fantastic waves-fun place to be. And the family is great- fun having the 2 forever smiling boys/young man around-they treat you like family.

I visited here with my wife for only one day. This is really good place with nice location. Just with the beach and with the sound of the waves it is a good place to stay with a minimum price. Room and bath rooms were clean and AC and fans were good. They had hot water also. There is a balcony with good space that see the blue Indian ocean. Even it is in the south coast of the country you can really enjoy the sun rise with sea view on your balcony. The staff is really friendly with good manners. They came many times when I called by room phone which I haven't seen from many sri lankan middle priced hotels. The food also good for dinner and breakfast hot and spice sri lankan food. I enjoyed very much the stay...

Nunca elijas el primero que encuentres ..
lara s [TA], , Madrid, Spain

Es el primer guesthouse en la línea de la playa y los tuk tuk te dejan primero allí porque son sus amigos .
Te intentan dar un precio que parece adecuado para la zona pero si sigues más adelante en el paseo hay alojamientos más baratos y mejores .
En éste te cobran impuestos sobre el precio que negocies con ellos y las botellas de agua de la habitación .
La habitación y vistas no está en malas condiciones .

Deserted Island (in a good way)
Rachael A [TA], , Cape Town Central, South Africa

If you have ever wondered what it would feel like to be on a deserted island, stay here! We were transfered here from another Hotel after they double booked us and we are so pleased they did and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was beautiful, clean and serene! The staff were friendly and our room was well priced. Im not sure the food in Tangalle in general was the best but it was fine.

All in all a beautiful location, i would recommend this to anyone.

That was pretty alright
sireviltom [TA], , Montreal, Canada

We don't usually stay in the hotel type of places but by the time we passed in front of it and since we have checked a couple of places before (one overpriced, the other smaller place had no one around to answer), we gave it a try and got an airy double fan room with balcony and sea view in the new wing for 2500. Hot water worked fine, mosquito net was in good shape, some long chairs were available for sunbathing on the beach front.

It was low season and I don't think there were more than 3-4 rooms occupied at the busiest day we were there. There's no light fixtures anywhere, that's weird considering someone took the time to paint the wall in three different colors following the junction with the ceiling... Anyway we weren't there for aesthetics.

Location wasn't bad, I needed to go to the bank and such, it was only a few minutes walk away. The beach isn't that wide at high tide though. We went for a walk further out and it gets bigger but windier as well.

They do receptions and banquet in there, so be aware of that. Nothing was going on during our stay so it was quiet and we slept well with the sea breeze coming in. There's the main building with restaurant across the street, seems older, no idea what the rooms are like in there.

We ordered breakfast on our last morning, it was pretty good but took a long time. Western style, 400 Rs per person.

And yeah, that bottle of water in the room wasn't complimentary, like someone else said. They'll charge restaurant price for it, 100 Rs.
