Quiet location if you are looking for a relaxed time. Beach in front of you. The resort consists of several cabanas. You can hear the sound of the waves from your bed. Helpful staff. Difficult access from the main road. Good swimming pool.
Thank you Sir for your comment. hope to see you nex time
Maybe in a few years....”
When we arrived at the Hotel the manager had no record of our reservation, although we had the receipt of payment which we showed to him. He then proceeded to tell us that this same issue had happened 3 times already that day with 3 different guests. We were pretty unhappy but eventually the manager agreed to send us to a different hotel for the night at which point we could come back the next day and complete our stay in the ocean view we had booked. The manager arranged for a tuk tuk to pick us up the next morning and bring us back to Darwin’s. We had a lovely see view and the room was big and clean. The bathroom is a bit old and the floors never dry, so every time you enter the bathroom you are walking on a wet, sandy floor. There was a mosquito netting over the bed that help keep the bugs out which was nice. Darwin’s is located on a nice quite beach; you can walk for hours and not see anyone. If this is what you are looking for then it is a great place to just relax and read or do whatever. The real tragedy of this Resort however is the food. The food is awful in a way that I can’t even explain! The first day we arrived I ordered eggs and French fries, because I thought there is no way you can mess that up, wrong. The eggs tasted like they had been made in a dirty pan, the fries were burnt and the ketchup tasted old and weird. Breakfast was included but you had to get there early before the uncovered food items got swarmed with flies. Every night we had to walk out on the pitch black dirt road to find a restaurant that would serve us. Some of the resorts would not because not, because they only catered to their guests. There was a couple nice placed to eat but it was pretty inconvenient to have to go out every night, but the food really was that bad.

Peaceful Oasis in Tangalle”
We stayed here prior to the main "season" so it might be different experience during season time. There were hardly any other guests during our stay. The hotel is quite far from the main road but this in turn, made its location very peaceful and calm. Very picturesque amongst swaying coconut trees. You can really relax. Our cabanas were very comfortable, although the bathrooms could have been better. Best recommended meal at the hotel would be its fish & chips - fresh and good portions. Another must try is the fresh coconuts. The sea is pretty rough for swimming but the hotel has a quite nice swimming pool that we spent most of our time in. Recommended for a relaxing, peaceful time by the sea.
Peut mieux faire...”
En présentant le voucher de réservation à notre arrivée le manager nous a dit qu'il n'était pas conforme (le prix de l'hotel avait pourtant était déjà débité de notre carte de crédit quelques jours plus tôt). Selon lui le problème venait d'Agoda qui ne transmet pas correctement les informations à l'hotel. Pour la première nuit, ils nous ont donné un bungalow provisoire en mauvaises conditions avec un lit d'appoint(pour quatre personnes, deux adultes et deux ados) qu'ils ont promis de ne pas nous facturer. Dès le 2eme jour ils nous ont transféré à un autre bungalow, en bonnes conditions et face à la mer, en nous fournissant deux lits d'appoint. A la fin du sejour ils nous ont donc remboursé la totalité de la première nuit plus un des bungalows pour les trois nuits suivantes. C'est qui était tout à fait correct de leur part. Pour le repas du soir on a été forcé de prendre le buffet, qui est plutôt cher et pas très varié. A midi non plus, ils n'ont pas toujours accepté de nous servir des repas chauds (pourtant simples) qu'ils proposent dans leur carte, sous pretexte que la cuisine était fermé(à 13h30!)quand le jour précédent ils nous avaient servi plus tard. Bref, le service en général n'est pas très bon et en tout cas pas au niveau du prix par bungalow demandé par cet hotel.
