Management incapable of solving problems! non man
The attentiveness of non management staff and chef. The ocean views, and the relaxing atmosphere.
Upon our arrival we were told our room had been given away. Normally, not a huge issue. However, since we travelled 12000 millers to get there, and paid over 1500.00 to stay at the ocean view suite, it was a huge issue. Furthermore, the manager was useless and did nothing to solve the problem. Fortunately for the hotel, we were traveling with friends who graciously agreed to give us their large garden view room.

A wonderful place to spend a few days...
It was in a beautiful location with great rooms, a fantastic restaurant and very friendly staff (including the very helpful manager Ethan).
We had a great few days at the hotel and stayed in one of the Sea View rooms.

Heaven
Room, staff, views
it was AMAZING! worth every single penny. The room was ridiculously beautiful and romantic whilst the staff were the most attentive staff i've ever come across. From the minute we stepped through the doors we were treated with such warmth and friendliness. Every query we had was answered with considered detail. Our final night even had flowers scattered across the bed. I LOVE THIS PLACE!

Beautiful hotel, excellent service
Everything
Superb exclusive hotel on a picturesque stretch of beach. Service was impeccable and the restaurant excellent (and not expensive). The chef will come out and chat to you about the food and cooking techniques etc. Breakfast was fabulous - have the egg hoppers. Thalpe is a tiny village so you will have to organise some transport to get to Galle or Unawatuna. This place will make you feel like a rockstar though so you may want to stay around....

Small, stylish and quiet hotel.
Good food, friendly service, nice bathrooms
This is a small 8 room hotel and we stayed here one night with the aim of going whale watching the next day. The hotel is only a 20 minute drive from Mirissa so it was very convenient. It was very quiet. The food was very good and excellent value for money. However the room service was limited and the beach is not great, although the sea view is lovely. I'd recommend it as a base for the nearby area if you want something quiet, private and secluded.

Cute charming hotel by the beach in Taulpe
Small, cosy , quiet . Pefect for couple
We were upgraded from Lobby room to Gardern suite upon checked in since hotel was not busy. Property is cute but when first checked in, thought room smelled a bit musky. Think its from the dampness being near the beach. There are 5-6 doors to the room so you get plenty of light. Room is spacious. Enjoy the fact that you can look out to the garden whilst taking a shower. Service was good. The waiters were smiley and helpful. Rather romantic property since they only have 8 rooms so there is no lack of privacy. Quiet , serene. A good place to relax after our 12 days trip around Sri Lanka. The downside is that the beach is not ideal. Its rocky and not suitable for swimming. Unawatuna is only a 3 mins tuk tuk ride away. There is nothing around so you will have to get your driver to drive you to Galle for other dining options beside the 1 restaurant in the hotel.

Nice hotel but didn't stayed at sister hotel
Looked beautiful on arrival but cannot comment on staying there.
Unfortunately Jetwing Era Beach hotel didn't get the full details of our party therefore they couldn't accommodate us on arrival. However we were upgraded to the 5 star sister hotel - Jetwing Lighthouse hotel in Galle. This was a fantastic hotel - the rock/beach setting was dramatic and beautiful. The food was superb and staff - very friendly and accommodating. We used the Spa as well and it was again a magical experience! The children loved the pools (there are two) and the beach is so interesting with plenty to discover! The rooms were a lovely colonial style and the bathrooms really luxurious. Really you didn't want to leave this hotel!
