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.

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.

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...

Room Tip: Rooms in the beach side

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.
