Wonderful place to stay
Craig1986 [TA], , London, United Kingdom

We had a wonderful stay in Palm Grove, the staff are wonderful and attentive, the location is great; there is a huge roof terrace where you can sit and just chill out; and the owners are lovely and always willing to help out. And all of this just a stones throw from Unawatuna Beach (about a 5 minute stroll).

The rooms themselves are basic, but they are very comfortable and clean, and to be honest, if you are spending time in your room, then you are not making the most of Sri Lanka. The breakfast is basic, mainly consisting of fruit and coffee, but it is also very nice.

If you are planning to visit Galle, then staying here would be far better than staying in the town itself.

Highly recommended.

Good place
Sandstorm... [TA], , Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Very welcoming and helpful staff, Paul and Lorraine are great at sorting things out. Breakfast tasty, roof terraces awesome but better to be in an upstairs room. There is wifi and a fridge stocked with cold drinks all day long if you want to lounge around, otherwise grab a tuk-tuk and you'll be on the beach in no time.

We stayed in Palm Grove for 2 nights and it was our favorite guesthouse while we were in Sri Lanka!
I just loved the place, the nature, the people. Everybody is very kind and that makes it is very relaxing to stay there!
Great breakfast, near the beach, but off the main road, so it's quiet!
We loved it!

amazing hospitality
Vickylr [TA], , Durham, United Kingdom

Amazing...Paul and Lorraine are very welcoming and their bed and breakfast is beautiful. The room was very comfortable, we had a family room, very comfy with mossy nest and air con. Breakfast is simple fruit, bread and eggs (anyway you wish) and so tasty. A short walk from Unawatuna's beach and they will order transport for you so you wont get overcharged.

Room Tip: all rooms amazing!

The Palm Grove experience.
ian s [TA], , Durham, United Kingdom

I would have to advise anyone travelling to the Galle area, to stay at Palm Grove. The warmth and friendliness of the place is unbelievable.
I have visited on several occasions and it felt like I was like returning home when arriving in January 16 .
The service provided by Lorraine, Paul and their excellent staff is just amazing really.
Nothing is too much trouble and they are always willing to help,organise or advise anyone who needs help.
The breakfast at Palm Grove is Ideal and can be taken on the upper terrace which is basically in the canopy where you will see monkeys,birds and Chipmunks in the trees around you.
I have stayed in all the rooms at Palm Grove and can say that they are all of a very good standard, being cleaned everyday.
The location is outstanding really, set in the small village of Unawatuna, surrounded by trees and is a quiet retreat close to the beach, shops and restaurants .
Anyone who visits Palm Grove will instantly know what I mean about the overall friendliness and good feeling of the place.
You will be looked after and I wouldn't even think about staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: All rooms are very good.

I visited Palm Grove last year and wanted to come back as it was really awesome. This year it was as great as the last one.The place is so peaceful with beatiful garden.Rooms very clean , beds are made every day. Very friendly staff. We were allowed to use the kitchen in the evenings so I could cook fish and shrimps from the fish market in Galle. Lorrain and Paul are so friendly that you really feel yourself at home.Great breakfast . Terrace on the top floor is perfect place to chill in the evning and watch monkeys playing on the trees.I want to come back again. Thank you for making my stay so memorable.

Our favorite B&B in Sri Lanka

We loved Palm Groves. Lorraine is a fantastic inn keepers and the staff always quick to help. The rooms are in tip-top shape and they always have cold water/soft drinks available.

Don't bother looking elsewhere. This is where you should be staying!

Our favourite guesthouse in Sri Lanka
Renata V [TA], , Kalamaki, Greece

After travelling for nearly 3 weeks in Sri Lanka, we chose the Palm Grove guesthouse for our last 5 days. This was the perfect choice, it was the best guesthouse we had during our holiday in Sri Lanka. Everything was perfect: very spacious bedroom (shelfs, hooks etc), airy large bathroom, lovely garden, delicious breakfast, central and quiet. Lorraine was very helpful, always present. Some other guests and we had a problem with a taxi driver and Lorraine sorted it out - everybody was happy in the end! Lorraine recommended us some delicious restaurants, the best restaurants in Unawatuna! We definitely stay again in Palm Grove when we come back to Sri Lanka!

A little gem in a jungle setting near the beach
Angiolina... [TA], , London, United Kingdom

We've just spent 5 nights here and had the best time. Perfect location near the beach (5 mins via a back route) but peaceful and quiet nestled amongst trees and lush greenery with an abundance of wildlife to watch from the gorgeous rooftop terrace where I spent many a happy hour swinging in the hammock transfixed by monkeys! Also a nice spot to have a chat with other guests who also were all lovely. The owners Paul and Lorraine can't do enough for you and are kind and thoughtful hosts even washing my husband's towel for him when it got a bit grubby. Breakfast is the standard fruit and eggs fare and lovely Melanie will cook them to perfection for you. All the staff are super sweet, the rooms are basic but spotless and we seemed to have an endless supply of clean towels placed in our rooms. Fantastic place to stay in Unawatuna and right next to the amazing Bedspace restaurant next door and the new but promising Razmatazz rooftop cafe. Thanks for a lovely time. Angiolina and Chris x
