Great location
Abbieshar... [TA], , Billericay, United Kingdom

This place was nice, great location. The room we had was very modern, but didn't have AC so we hardly got any sleep it was like a sauna. The food was ok. Service was good. I did find it a little pushy to try and make us stay longer when for us it was just a pitstop.

Great spot

We received a warm welcome from the attentive staff. There is a lovely little private beach adjoining the hotel where there are plenty of turtles and natural rock pools. We had dinner here and we were quite impressed, the tuna steak could have been cooked a little less.

Would have been 5 stars but the rooms need updating in our opinion. Fixtures and fittings, a paint job and maybe some updates to the bathrooms (toilet seats, light shades etc). Also the mosquito net in the twin rooms only fit one of the beds properly.

Apart from that we will likely visit here again as the location and service we perfect.

Quite place on the beach

Great view, ocean view rooms, private beach, nice staff. Place is at really quite area, if you want just to sit on the beach or terasse and relax - it is for you. Also good if you are surfer.

Meals are overpriced to what you get, extreme long waiting time at dinner (owner warned us it takes time). The rooms reqiure some conservation and paint. Internet barely working- get your own 3G

Absolutely wonderful!!!!

This place is amazing. The picture doesn't do it justice. After they picked us up at the airport at 3am and then drove us the 3 hours, we crashed in a lovely a/c room with a hot shower and comfy bed. When I woke up and looked out the window......paradise, the ocean was just there, crashing waves next to the outdoor restaurant.
The food and service was fantastic and so cheap!. They organised us to go on a safari, lots of fun! We snorkelled right in front of the resort and saw fish, coral and turtles. We caught the local bus to Marissa and Galle but I just couldn't wait to get back to the Beach Inns. Thanks Indika and Fiona, our friends are coming!!!!

Room Tip: Wifi was available in the lobby and restaurant. Ask for a beach view, fantastic.

All you need, really.

That is to say:

- two beautiful owners, inside and out
- clean, spacious rooms and facilities
- an almost private beach!
- wifi (okay, that was not too stable but that's more of an overall problem on Sri Lanka)
- super duper food at a reasonable price
- and I'm sure if we had stayed there during high season plenty of good ppl to hang with :)

Decent place to have lunch, compared to most places in this area (which are sabby and run down) this one stands out. Nice seafront seating. Clean tables. Curry was very basic with just one dish included plus a small condiment.

We have been here for the last 10 days, only 2 left!! It has been the best place we have stayed in Sri Lanka. The staff are very friendly and helpful and Indika and Fiona will help you out with any questions, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are very clean, we have an a/c room in the new build with a private balcony, which is beautifully appointed and spacious for our needs. The food has been great, and has even received approval from our exceptionally fussy son! The beach is stunning and very safe to swim in, the snorkling has been a highlight, plus the daily turtle spotting. We saw a green turtle laying eggs on the 23rd!! I would recommend this place to everyone, especially families. (I do not agree with the review posted earlier this week (1 star) we were here at the same time as them, and I think it is more of a reflection on the people who wrote it, than Beach Inns!!!) We will definitely be coming back.

amazing place - don't want to leave!

I don’t normally write reviews but wanted to write about the amazing time I spending at beach inns. I here over Christmas and my experience of the place is very different to the other review made recently.
I agree that the staff are very friendly however I disagree on every other point. The food was great and well worth the money esp the bbq on Christmas eve when the whole restaurant was completely packed. A highlight of my time here was watching a turtle lay her eggs on the beach on the night of the 23rd – The turtles are certainly still around. The ocean is great. Spent most of my time snorkeling.
The wifi was slow when I first arrived but has now been sorted as promised by the management.
I wish I could stay longer but unfortunately they are fully booked I have to leave. I have left them my number to call me as soon as a room becomes available.

Expensive, Dirty but friendly
qwertzuij... [TA], ,

They had a drastic price increase in the last months!!!!
Obviously they make us pay for the replacement of the discusting old tables and plastic chairs on the terrass and the enormous new building startet beside the one on the picture.
Restaurant is extremly expensive compared to the provided quality standard.
Aints all over the tables and even in the sugar.
Last year fried calamarie were fresh for 650Rps, this year they are deep frozen for 1100Rps!!!!
Ginger beer changed from 100 to 150!
Airport transfer increased from 12000 to 15000
and so on ....

Non existing WLAN but they continuously promise that tomorrow or in the next days they get a very fast one - it is already paid just the work somewhere else needs to be finished.(since last summer)
And only limited to the indoor area and a small part of the terrass definitely in non of the rooms!
Lots of very friendly staff, but they are definitely not here to clean the rooms.

I think many people already found out because now(22.12.2015) the place is nearly empty and thouse which are still coming move on asap.
It seems also the turtles move because the water is not as clean any more as it used to be.
Plastic everywhere - dustbins do bot exist.

Move on...

Quirky but nice

I spent 13 nights here, if I was to review it as a conventional resort, it would not rate very highly. Rooms are only serviced on request, air conditioned rooms do not provide anything more than a bed sheet and service tends to be rather slow.

However despite these critical comments, I have to say, the experience of staying there was really delightful. The location is simply stunning, while the owners and staff treat you more like family members than guests.

Anything I requested was done, always with a smile, the owners Indika and his delightful wife Fiona work very hard to ensure all guests feel welcome and no matter what time of day were always available to assist us.

Room Tip: Wifi is available in the restaurant, but not very reliable, however this is being fixed.
