    Concept is great but poor experience”
    The beach is stunningly beautiful. You will be like the only one's there. The tents are impressively clean although you are still in the jungle. They're not as amazing though as in the photos. The photos are quite staged. There was also only a few other people there and everyone is doing a safari. So there's zero vibe to the place. The staff on site are nice but there's no services available at the beach camp. You need to go to the Elephant Reach Hotel that this is like a satellite operation of. We really didn't like the hotel. It's a 10 minute tuktuk ride from the beach camp. We had the impression it was within walking distance. It is not. The hotel is very expensive. Dinner was $20 each and it was cold and just not good. Thewhole place has a very colonial vibe to it which we didn't really like. The staff are very nice curtious and helpful. They're almosttoo curtious and helpful. It felt weird. If you're in town to safari which you probably are I would probably try elsewhere.

    Beautiful Location but disappointing service ”
    We stayed here on dec 11 & 12 this was beach stay . The camps are overlooking the sea . really beautiful place . Unfortunate part was food isnt available & for any small thing we had to go to hotel which was 1.5 miles , staff was not courteous to look after the guest . We were offer to move to hotel on second day as the tents were empty & apart from us there was no one . However we only stayed back due to beautiful location , we went to jetwing yala for dinner which was awesome.

    The highlight of our Sri Lanka trip”
    Just idyllic. A fantastic, solid feeling tent right on the beach. We absolutely loved everything about this place but you should be aware of the following: there is electricity and a fan but no air conditioning or wi fi. The beach is immaculate and beautiful however it is totally natural and so it can be dangerous and is not the kind of beach where you can leave kids to swim alone. Perfect for walks though. The Elephant Reach hotel will arrange dinner under the stars if you ask them..

    Changed instead to Elephant Reach Hotel which was excellent experience!!”
    The Beach Camp Yala appears not to be a good choice, so understandably we switched in that moment to the nearby Elephant Reach Hotel and it was a superb experience. The manager and staff were wonderful. We even took pictures with them at the end of our stay! They tried to make us as comfortable as possible, and the grounds were very natural and exotic yet clean and safe. Not as expensive as the other luxury hotels. Beautiful pool and sitting bar all situated among low hanging trees and many shaded lounge chairs. Like a well-kept secret. One of our favorite places !!

    Nothing compared to what the websites shows!”
    If you like camping in a damp tent on a piece of land surrounded by rubbish tips then this is your place. It's a far fetch from the 'luxury' camping experience... I could go on but I certainly wouldn't recommend it and hope they stop putting people there.

    Lovely setting, little else”
    Pretty coastal setting.
    Mixed. Firstly the address is wrong, making it very hard for drivers to find - it's in Kirinda, not Tissa. Tent fine and large with huge bed but damp and unaired. Cold water only. Great view from viewing platform, nice place for an evening drink but you'd have to travel for half an hour for supplies first. Absolutely nothing close by and nothing at beach camp but tents, relies on sister hotel for meals, pool, bar and transport between is provided. Good safari organised at reasonable price. Main hotel a bit tired but pleasant enough EXCEPT for some reason keeps 6 or so rabbits in a tiny cage in appalling conditions - build a run or send them to better home!

    Unique experience at a Great Location”
    Experience, Location, Concept
    We stayed a night at the camp which is about 13km away from the Yala sanctuary. The staff there will organise a tour on request. The only qualm about this place is the meals. as there are only 3 tents here, there is no onsite kitchen so our dinner was delivered to us and we had to go to a near by 4-star hotel for breakfast. check in and check out was also done at the same hotel (which is about a couple km's away) Other than that we had a great time on this beach setting. Also watch out for the mosquitoes!

    Merci pour l'accueil, un séjour très agréable ou nous avons eu la chance de faire un safari avec le responsable du camp qui est guide naturaliste. Il est très compétent et passionné. Nous avons eu la chance de voir beaucoup d'animaux dont un léopard. Les tentes étaient parfaites et le lit très confortable. L'emplacement près de la plage est magnifique. On est bercé par les vagues de la mer toute la nuit. Je conseille de manger sur le camps le très bon "Rice and Curry" et surtout ne mangé pas à l'autre hôtel même si le déplacement en tuk tuk est offerte car c'est vraiment tout le contraire : un buffet trop chère dans une ambiance de resort trop bruyante nous n'avons pas apprécié.

    Das Beach Camp gehört mit zum Elephant Resort Hotel, was ein sehr schönes Restaurant mit ausgezeichnetem Buffet hat. Ein Shuttel Service steht zur Verfügung. Der Chef Koch /Manager vom Elephant Resort Hotel ist sehr gut und freundlich. Der Service hervorragend. Auch das Personal vom Beach Camp Resort. Nur leider sind die Zelte älter und die Badezimmer nicht sehr angenehm. Keine Abstellmöglichkeiten in unserem Zelt, wo man mal Kleidung hätte aufhängen können, und auch nicht so sauber. Aber der Ausblick und das Meeresrauschen haben vieles wieder entschädigt.

    Voordelen: super ligging en erg vriendelijke en behulpzame staf ; vanuit je tent heb je zicht op de zee en ook het strand is prachtig ( in laag seizoen kan je er wel niet zwemmen omdat de zee te wild is) Nadelen: gaten in de tent aan de kant van de badkamer; muizenstrontjes in de badkamer en zelfs op de kussens in bed ( wij waren er wel in low season en het blijft natuurlijk wel kamperen) Kussens op ligbedden voor de tent plakkerig en beschimmeld

    Fantastische plek om te verblijven. Prachtig ingerichte tenten. Heerlijke locatie buiten het dorp.”
    De locatie is goed te bereiken. Op de camping is echter verder niets qua voorzieningen, hiervoor kun je terecht bij het bijbehorende hotel. Hier kun je lekker eten en een duik nemen in het zwembad. De gastheer op de camping is erg aardig en wil alles voor je doen. Hij zorgt goed voor zijn gasten en houdt toezicht. Ook is er snachts iemand aanwezig voor het toezicht. Dit geeft een veilig gevoel. Je hebt vanuit de tent uitzicht op zee. Ook kun je een wandeling maken over het strand. De zee was erg wild, het was niet mogelijk om hier in te zwemmen.
