We had a fantastic stay at Villa in Paradise. The hotel is set back about 200 metres from the main road meaning that it is really quiet. It's a up a hill so there are great views from the many balconies. The pool is great and the rooms were spotlessly clean. Whilst in and around the pool we watched monkeys... More

The rooms are nice and clean. The pool in a tropical garden is an exciting experience with monkeys chasing in palms and mango trees above your head! And you can also have a chance to meet a friendly waran and squirrels on the terrace. The choice if dishes for breakfast is OK with the typical Sri Lanka breakfast being number... More

Perfect hospitality from the lovely Yorkshire couple that is Roger and Maureen. They went more than out of their way to help. (They lent us a stash of money when our bank card didn't work, took us shopping in Galle in their own suped up tuk tuk, listening to Queen en route, and drove us to the Fort). Roger in... More

Really enjoyed our 4-day family stay at the Villa in Paradise. Roger and Maureen and their staff have been very kind and helpful. The facility is as described on the websites. Well recommended! Nice rooms, nice breakfast. Facility is about 150 meters from lively beach and a short tuk-tuk ride from beautiful Galle Fort.

NIce villa set up on a hill above the main town. Lovely pool and garden, small but sunbeds and hammock to relax in. The owner kindly arranged a taxi to bring me down from where I had been staying in Colombo as I had a big heavy suitcase so the train would have been impractical. Lots of stairs but the... More

Villa is nice place with a small beautiful garden. Our room was spacious and bed was big and comfortable. But there was no promised sea view. Actually no view at all due to windows you couldn't see through. They also have the only showers in Sri Lanka that actually work. Wifi and breakfast were good. Villa is a bit far... More

Roger and Maureen and us go back 10 years as they selflessly opened up their place for us (and numerous others) to stay in during the tsunami of 2004.

Behavior of staff was Rude. The staff and the owner(Roger) make it seem like they are doing a favor doing simple service like shifting luggages.

I was surprised that one of the British managers told us not to use the Air Conditioner when the generator was running. I was also surprised how tiny the rooms were. For a similar price in Colombo, the rooms were at least double the size. The view is nice from the balcony and the property is quite small. Rooms were... More
