“Great Place”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

We had 3 nights in one of the cabanas next to the beach. We couldn't hear the beach bar at all but it was just at the start of the season, and the waves were very loud! The sea was great but the current seemed pretty strong but we were warned to be careful swimming. The cabana was not new but perfectly clean and airy. Ample room and we had a resident dog who guarded our cabana at night.....and followed us to the beach, on walks, to the restaurant!
The food in the restaurant we found beautiful and there was no problem asking for something specific as long as you do it by 2pm.

Room Tip: We loved our cabana close to the beach but if you are a light sleeper the sound of the crashing wave...

This is a sweet escape from the city. The cabanas were not exactly new, but well-kept. My cabana is Nr1, very close to the beach. I could sit at the porch on the super comfortable chairs for the whole day. When I wanted to swim, all I had to do is walk to the ocean and enjoy the water. The beach front restaurant outside of the hotel are loud and noisy and expensive. They play awful music until very late. Annoying. But the nights in the cabana were so nice and cool. A good place to relax.

Beautiful secluded beach with clear, clear water and great, fun surf to enjoy.

A true hide-away feeling with no noice from road or bars nearby - except for small shack on beach that plays a little eletronic vibe some night until midnight only. (NB: Serve great fresh fish always for lunch and dinner while having fire at night - genuine romantic :-)

BUT #1: Owned and run by old European couple who is really not that serviceminded hence most staff are impacted by their indifference towards guest that are not from their own country (Germany). Found it difficult to get service beyond the mere basics.
BUT #2: Food seems adjusted to German taste thus no local flavour and variety.
BUT #3: Unless you accept to go with set menu every evening, you would have to order your a la carte dinner meal already during breakfast. Again no attempt to provide individual service was offered.

Room Tip: Go for the new rooms if you want a boutique feeling and need a mosquito free and A/C room to sleep i...

Palm Paradise Cabanas is a real hidden paradis and a great place to spent a few relaxing days.
The wooden cabanas are located in a beautiful big garden between palm trees and just a footstep away from the beach.
The spot is perfect. Quite and private beach where two beach huts offer deckchairs, drinks and food. The water is swallow but waves are big and its fun to use the boggie boards for a surf.
On both sides of the property you can walk to other quiet beaches. So its nice to go for a stroll and enjoy the wonderful views.
The huts are open (so bring Oropax for a good nights sleep since the waves can be quit noisy) and all have a big veranda. The are basiclly furnished but very spacoius.
The hotel offers a lovely restaurant with local food, massages and wifi at the reception. Staff are very friendly and helpful!
We had great days and it was the perfect spot for us in Sri Lanka!

Friendly staff, who provided all we needed, with superb English.
Rooms were spotless; did not encounter any problems with any of the services provided except the WIFI which out due to severe weather the day of our arrival and took 2 days to repair
Beds comfortable and the setting fantastic palm garden with the sound of the surf to nod off to sleep.
TIP: use hotel services for cars etc, they are cheaper than other options nearby, and use a table to calculate rates/distances/times.
BYO Coffee - this is the one let down of things offered.

We arrived after a stressfull day at 6am after a night in dubai airport in Sri Lanka (new airport near tangalle).
We met a nice cabdriver who brought us to the mainroad to get a bus and offered us to take us straight to tangalle cause he has to drop off some customers there anywhere (when They agree).
We searched before for cheap places but everthing was closed or we didn't find it.
After some places The driver showed us this places and we falled in love even if it is not our price range we decided to stay 1 night and take some rest.

Pros: - really nice surrounding (lovely beach and awesome area)
- friendly stuff
- nice cabanas
- nice food (only breakfast tested)
- friendly locals on The beach

Cons: - if you go back late don't forget a flashlight
- wifi only in a seperated area and really bad (at this price i expect that it works also in the bungalows)
- too expensive for us

Fazit: with my Budget i wouldn't stay there again (~13€ a day) but with a bigger bankaccount i would like to rest there for a couple of days

We stayed in one of the new villas. They are really spacious and feel very comfortable. Balcony view is spectacular where you see the ocean and it opens out to a outdoor garden. You wake up each morning when the birds sing.Thushara was very helpful. The food was o.k and you cannot complain.
The sea was rough but the pool which is well set out in the open garden compensated. We will return to this villa again in 2014.
