Fantastic stay in beautiful hotel!

The garden is AMAZING. The staff outstanding. Real value for money.

The hotel is beautiful with a garden to die for! Sun loungers to sit in all day with fabulous staff helping to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as can possibly be! The breakfast was great as well! Brilliant location on a quieter beach away from the noise of Unawatuna, but with easy access by tuk tuk or bus to places like Galle and Unawatuna. We really loved our stay and would definitely come back!

9.7
We were in Thalpe for only one night for a friend's bday party so we only needed somewhere cheap and clean. We were very pleasantly surprised to find that Rockside Cabanas was not only reasonably priced and clean, but very well looked after with great attention to the maintenance of the hotel grounds, a simple but comfy room (with a clean bathroom!) and very friendly service. The owner Renata was very friendly and welcoming and it was wonderful to see her put so much of her own effort into taking care of the place. We even saw her on her hands and knees meticulously de-weeding the lawn in the morning. It just goes to show that extra effort pays off. We would definitely stay here again when we are back in town. For breakfast, we personally would have preferred Sri Lankan, like string hoppers and kiri hoddy but it was our own fault for not having ordered it ahead of time. What we had was fine and they even made us an onion and chili sambal to accompany our eggs. Thanks for the lovely stay, Rockside and see you again soon! -Adrian & Chris

nice house, nice staff and food. but the beach is not as good as mirissa, not many people on the beach
Margaret D. Couples Ireland, June 29, 2014
Loved the location. It is relaxation heaven

The beach, location ( next to Wijaya Beach Restaurant) and the quality of the cabanas
8.3
Very good and we will definitely go back there, Renate ( the owner ) went to great efforts to service us well. Ensure you inform her if you are a late arrival as it is a small premises and not open late. And we were there in "low season" - it would even be more fabulous Dec-April!
Jatin S. Couples Canada, June 22, 2014
Excellent location and beautiful View

The View, The staff and the owner
8.3
It was a very pleasant surprise when the owner greeted us and showed us to the cabana. The view from the cabana was unbelievable and it was like staying right on the ocean. We then moved to Cabana no.1 which had even a better view and even though the seas were rough, there was a nice spot to safely enter the water. We checked out to go to Galle fort, but returned to Rockside again for another night and this time booked the Sea Side room B1 which had AC. The AC makes a big difference and it still had a beautiful view of the ocean. The breakfast was very nice and the owner lives right there and is extremely helpful for any kind of help required. A tuk tuk driver called Samba helps out whenever needed. Highly recommend this place.
Debra N. Couples New Zealand, April 23, 2014
Very clean, big room.

Cleanliness and proximity to beach
8.3
We had an upstairs apartment which was very big and spotlessly clean. Fresh towels, and beach towels everyday. In Thalpe itself, there is no shopping/markets. However Unawatuna is about a 5 minute tuktuk ride away. Beach infront of the hotel is very calm, and resembles a man made pool due to the reef. Only down point was the train track runs very close to all the hotels along Thalpe beach.
