The staff are friendly,the sea and beach is fine..The breakfast is up to the best standards for your health.The staff are interested in your enjoyment. Things are run to a high standard comparatively.Torism,sights are negligible .If you are going for peace,rest,health then great!The menu for supper is ok not amazing but sustainable for a few days.

Stay at Kalpitiya Resort”
Best is the staff courtesy & help fullness. Understanding of customer Needs & Wants, Surrounding.
Excellent & enjoyable. definitely re-visit. My family & my daughter's family with 10 months old were staying in 2 cottages, where it was so spacious we could have stayed even in one. It was so homely even the small one enjoyed the stay tremendously. Only thing they could do little better with the mosquitoes in the evenings.

Little paradise”
Tranquility, accomodation, food
Very Nice resort, little but in the same time a lot of space. Beautifull and luxery tents, superb pool, lovely restaurant with great food (especially the local breakfast). The hotel has a great manager and very friendly and efficiënt staff.

Perfect start to Sri Lanka”
Curries, Pool, Tents
Dolphin Beach Resort was the perfect start to our Sri Lanka tour. Very relaxed atmosphere, nice sandy resort, beautiful, spacious and air conditioned tents to sleep in. We enjoyed staying at the pool reading all day. Special thanks to Dean and his team, who served us perfectly. We had wonderful Sri Lankan food, the curries were just perfect – the best we enjoyed in Sri Lanka! Unluckily we were too late for dolphin watching, as it was quite windy and the sea too rough. We’ll be back in the right season next time!

The perfect start to our holiday!”
Pool, Food, Friendliness
Dolphin Beach was the first stop on our 10 day tour of Sri Lanka and we spent 4 amazing nights here. The rooms were beautiful with some great quirky features - only complain I would have is that you cannot lock the tents. Not too much of an issue for us but may be concerning if you had young children or anything super valuable? Dean the manager was very friendly and easy to talk to - I don't think our stay would have been the same without him. He goes above and beyond and nothing is too much trouble. The food was some of the best we had in Sri Lanka and we really liked the flexibility. When we arrived it was pizza night, but Dean correctly assumed we would want some Sri Lankan food on our first night in Sri Lanka, so he had the kitchen make us a great lamb curry dish which was delicious! One day for lunch Dean had his mother cook up a squid ink risotto with fresh cuttlefish - another amazing dish! Another highlight was the 7 week old puppy. Nero who lives in the resort. I absolutely fell in love! The next resort we stayed at was 5 star hotel chain and had no where near the service and uniqueness that we experienced at Dolphin Beach.

Dolphin boat trip and beach hotel”
Beautiful setting, manager Dean was super helpful, Terrific food
Awesome setting, but hard to find. No signs on road. You need to call to get directions. Super helpful staff. We saw 1000 dolphins on the boat trip, amazing. The BIG disappointment was that the reef was dead and no snorkeling was available.

Lifestyle of the rich and famous”
Private, attentive staff, fabulous concept
We had a wonderful time at Dolphin Beach Resort. If you need a break from the city, this is the perfect place to unwind. Staffed by the most attentive and friendly team, your stay will definitely be memorable. We spent plenty of time just reading in the sun. The concept of the resort is also really novel - the tents took our breaths away. There's also a great deal of privacy so once you step into the resort, it feels like you're transported to a separate world. Would definitely be back if I visit Sri Lanka again!
