            The Hotel itself is quiet but not far from beach. Wonderful dining location by the beach and we loved particularly the floating bridge to the beach. We also spotted a water lizzard under the bridge , a pleasant surprise! Room facilities are a bit simple

            Super value for money. An unusual resort that allows both lagoon viewing/kayaking as well as ocean front dining/bar. Spread out over a many acres, quite diverse, many choices for room style. We enjoyed the simple cabanas by the lagoon- clean, satellite TV, hot water, peaceful. Nice pool. Stayed there hoping to walk to the turtle spotting area but we had a rain storm. Only downside is the distance from town IF you want to go exploring or eat elsewhere. We've been there twice and will go again.

            Good facilities but worst customer service”

            Fisrt the good stuff... the pool is great and the cleaners do a good job. However customers service is a joke. They took 3 hours to check me in. Tried to give me a room full of damp. Underchanged me then tried to charge me more than the room rate on the internet. The manager was absolutely useless and blamed his poor staff. The breakfast was poor and there is nothing much nearby. Plus it is in an area with something of a shady reputation. If you are thinking of staying here save you money and stay elsewhere.

            Nice stay, enjoyed”

            Stunning scenery! We stayed in the basic but spacious beach cabana, loved it. Nature is lush, make good use of the kayaks as the lagoon is a must! The beach is lovely. At the spot the sea is too rough to swim in, however 300m away there's a natural pool surrounded by rocks. Staff were friendly and everything was clean (cleaned many times throughout the day). Pool is relaxing and long enough to swim laps. The wifi is weak and you can only connect at certain spots but TBH you're better off enjoying the view of either the beach or the nice garden and listening to the sounds of nature. There are 2 restaurants, but during our stay only the beach restaurant functioned. Prepaid breakfast was nice, we loved the option to choose from different cuisines. A la cart food could be improved, though. Along the beach you'll find a couple of restaurants worth checking out. Town center is a bit far, need a tuk tuk to get there. Rekawa is nearby and well worth it, if you're into turtle watch (in season).

            Fantastic beach ambience; the bar/restaurant on the beach (Big Crocodile Bar); decent money value proposition

            Excellent. The only problem was the internet, which is unavailable in the rooms and accessible only in the hotel lobby (and once you're in the lobby, the connection was incredibly slow). Beautiful pool, lovely place to walk around. Rooms however are a bit dark and old-fashioned but were comfortable. I would happily come back again

            Staff friendliness, proximity between ocean and lagoon

            We stayed at the only beach front cabana. Whilst location and room itself was great, everything had a bit of a shabby touch - the door to the bathroom didn't close, the toilet was not the youngest, etc. Nonetheless it was clean and we enjoyed being almost the only guests. Be aware of the strong currents - in rainy season it's almost impossible to swim.

            Modern, Nice beach

            I have to say this hotel looked very clean and modern, like a proper holiday resort. If you want to relax, lie down in the sun, nice sandy beach, this is perfect place to be. In regards to location, it's a bit away from Tangalle, have to take taxi or Tuk Tuk, too far to walk. So if you like walking, not much to see around. We stayed in one of the bungalows, that was really nice, independent from other guests, views were perfect. Staff were very friend and polite.

            Location, pool area, serenity

            A bit pricy compared to other places nearby, but it has a clean ja spacious pool are which is a definite plus. Tangalle is still very relaxed and lacks touristy feeling. Just sand, ocean ja palm trees. We had a wonderful time at Paradise Beach just hanging out at the beach during daytime and relaxing by the pool afterwards. Staff is very friendly and quick to reply to emails before our arrival. Resort grounds are very quiet and serene at the time we were there - you could hang out by the pool all by yourself most of the evenings. And the nature surrounding Tangalle is just beautiful... We saw peacocks, iguanas, chipmuncks, monkeys and all sorts of birds. Oh and turtles too! The restaurant is not the best on the beach, but reasonably priced. Rice and curry and grilled fish are a safe bet.

            Cheap room rates, reasonably priced food, friendly staffs

            I will never regret that I chose lagoon paradise resort. My 2 nights' stay was great. Before checking in to this hotel I was a little worried that the food would be pricy, however, it was not expensive at all and the food tasted good. I decided to stay at this resort because I planned to make my way from Yala National Park to Galle, while Tangalle beach is in the middle of my trip so it would not make my bus journey too exhausting if I stayed here. Well, everything about this hotel was great but, the only thing I dislike is that there are too many bugs inside my room, especially at night they all gathered around the lights. Anyway, Tangalle beach is beautiful and sandy but too rough to swim, it wasn't a problem for me because there's a large clean swimming pool in this resort.

            The location. The views. The house keeping staff

            Apart from the building works which woke me at 7am every morning and went on through the day i enjoyed the rest of my stay. I would of thought the hotel of this size would of had wifi which reached the rooms. The pool is huge and lovely surrounded by gardens. The beach is secluded and the resort is generally beautiful. The house keeping staff are really nice and polite. I do however think the menu is slightly overpriced for the limited food they offer. It seemed that everytime i paid for drinks the price changed with it. If you want a relaxing holiday then this is for you.

            Spotless, great location, relaxing

            We had such a wonderful stay at this resort and so value for money. The owner, his friends and the staff and whole team were excellent. Rooms were beautifully decorated with complimentary water, kettle, tea and coffee. The gardens are lovely, calm with a great swimming pool. The food, both breakfast and dinner was amazing. Buffet food served both local and western food, spotless and attentive waiters. We celebrated Sri Lankan new year there and the owner invited us to the morning ceremony which was wonderful. We were offered blessings and a light snack. They even gave us money for good luck which we thought was very sweet. The resort is in the beach front with beautiful sand and the sea. There are two restaurants which do nice food. It is also 10 mins tuk tuk drive to the town centre which is very sweet to walk around in. The small downside was trying to get internet in the room, you can only access internet in the lobby which I failed to but the owners were sooo pleasant and helpful that they let me use their computer from the reception desk... Thank you to everyone who made our stay very very very special! We will be back soon!

            Free sunbeds by the sea, delicious seafood, the possibility to stay in a cabana.

            We lived in a lagoon cabana close to the pool. The room was nice and spacious. It had a calm surrounding and the only thing you could hear during night was the sound of waves from the ocean. We only had a small problem with some ants that loved to spend time in our bathroom. The staff made their best to get rid of them. The pool was clean and nice swimming in. There was a buffé as breakfast where you could get a freshly made omelet and fresh fruit as well as typical sri lankan breakfast dishes. This hotel is not situated in the centre of Tangalle which means that there was almost none on the beach (only 2 salesmen). Along the beach there was also other nice places to eat lunch and dinner. The beach is very nice but not the ideal place to bring children, because of high waves and strong currents, if you don't want to spend a lot of time by the pool. A place we strongly recommend!

            We have stayed six nights in the hotel and would stay much longer if we had more time. We have occupied two different rooms because of all our four kids with us. We have all enjoyed nice and large pool most of the time. We have also spent some time on canoe in surrounding lagoon. Sand beach was almost empty as it was low season (August) which was very relaxing. However due high waves it was difficult to swim. We have to find nearby area with some rock in sea which broke the waves and made swimming possible.

            The beach cabana was the best room I've ever stayed in. Literally on the beach we almost couldn't stay because it had nearly been swept into the ocean. No aircon or hot water - not missed at all. In fact the water is quite often warm as it comes through the pipes. Room cooled by ocean breeze. It was often a bit too windy - but we loved it nonetheless. 2 restaurants at the resort. One right next to the beach cabana, great for drinks, room service. Lagoon cabanas look lovely too and the whole resort is bright sparkly and clean. Fantastic,clean, 25m swimming pool, plenty of space for serious laps. Massages available, very relaxing. The ocean was not swimmable while we were there - not even for body surfing the waves - too dangerous. There is a natural ocean pool about 100m away which was lovely especially for sunsets on the beach.

            quiet place with nice pool”

            quietness, pool, nature

            We have stayed six nights in this hotel and then moved to Unawatuna for another four nights. However I would return immediately back to Lagoon Paradise for its empty beaches, big swimming pool, quietness and peacefulness. We have enjoyed canoe in the adjacent lagoon very much. But the hotel is far from shops and closest can be found in Tangalle city 6-8 minutes by tuk tuk.
