Best places to stay for kids in Galle

We have been invited to a wedding in Galle in October and need to find the best value place to stay with an 11 and a 13 year old. Has anyone any suggestions? I assume we would go for 7 nights, unless someone has a better suggestion for a 2 centre alternative?

Hi there,

I'd do 2 centres, as any beach town is too far from most of the inland sights. Assuming the kids are fond of wildlife, the Cultural Triangle could be a good 2nd location with e.g. Sigiriya; on your way can visit Pinawela elephant orphanage and MEF, and also spend some time with Kandy on the return trip.

Best value: anything in Unuwatuna with a pool, e.g. U'tuna Beach Resort or Flower Garden (last one only at a discount). Best beach hotel nearby, at a price: Lighthouse Galle.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Dear Erik

Thank you very much for your suggestions - I will do further research. It's a question of balancing a "once in a lifetime" opportunity with the cost for a cash-strapped family!
