              Restaurant food very good

              we had a very nice time in tangerine hotel. the swimming pool was lovely and warm. it is right on the beach so really nice for long walks. we had the dinner buffet and the variety was very varied. we had a nice room overlooking the beach. there was renovations going on during our stay so if you are booking ask for a room away from the work in progress. you can't hear the noise from the pool so that is nice and relaxing. they will probably have the renovations finished for the high season!! overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend tour friends and family

              We are repeat visitors to Tangerine. As always, the stay was excellent! The staff are extremely friendly and caring & go out of their way to help. The rooms are very attractive. The breakfast is superb with an enormous buffet! It’s a warm and friendly place that we thoroughly enjoyed. Just sitting & having tea while watching the sunset was so relaxing! Absolutely a place to visit!

              Friendly staff, clean rooms, peaceful place”

              Clean place, sprawling--enough room to move around. Kids love the small pool and garden.

              we live in colombo and have now gone twice to tangerine for a small break, once with the kids and once just as a couple--it's certainly suitable for both. we appreciate the attention the staff give to caring for the place. if you want really nice, soft sand beaches, go further south, but otherwise the beach is fine. our only discomfort was the litter on the beach and the locals who hang around on the beach looking for hand-outs or offering "services"

              Beautiful hotel, overlooking the beach”

              Beautiful view of gardens and beach from balcony

              the hotel was simply beautiful in every way. water surrounding inside the hotel, with huge fish, and birds. the gardens were surrounded by coconut trees, with a walk straight out of the back gate, onto the beach. the sea was not safe to swim, this time of the year. there was a huge swimming pool, right near the beach, with a bar right next to it, so it was not so bad, that we could not swim in the sea!

              Lovely beach, comfy room & excellent service

              Tangerine is just 45 mins away from Colombo - so, a quick getaway. The hotel has recently been redecorated & looks very nice. The pool too is under renovation but we were able to use the extremely large pool of their sister hotel just a walk away. Excellent staff & service.

              1) Staff was very helpful and friendly. 2) Hotel was absolutely beautiful 3) Rooms were marvelous.

              The stay was great and the kids enjoyed there stay. When we were there the pool was under construction and we had to use the pool in Royal Palms beach hotel which was amazing. The food could improve tremendously other than that our stay was superb and would definitely visit again.

              Lovely grounds and pool area

              Overall a nice experience. A few too many restrictions, no playing with a ball in the pool, game room closed at 7pm. Breakfast buffet was plentiful but same day after day. Close by are a few resturants and shops so that made it nice to leave hotel grounds and explore. Not much beach side to see or do but overall a great budget experience

              Good Hotel to stay. I got my room at a promotional price (B&B) and when I asked for the Buffet Dinner they quote me a higher price (USD 88 per person). Then I went with Al-a-Cart at a cheaper price (USD 10-12 per person)

              It was clean, minimalist and value for money. We got a room on the ground floor, by the side of the pool and the beach was less than 50 meters away.

              Breakfast was reasonably good, had a continental and Sri Lankan spread. However, the Sri Lankan spread had boiled rice and noodles and coconut roti. It would have been great if they had string hoppers or milk rice instead of rice and noodles. The curries were excellent, the dhal curry in particular was delicious and wend well even with the roti. There was a party going on when we returned to the hotel at about 11 pm and thought it might disturb our sleep. But where we were located, did not hear a thing. The bathrooms are a reasonable size with a bathtub shower. The mini bar was empty. That was ok though, who needs those expensive drinks when there is a long line of shops and restaurants just outside the hotel.

              Interior

              Stayed in Tangerine for 4 days in July 2011. Hotel is average, can't say anything's special or outstanding. It's located in a village with a very poor choice of eating places or shops. Our deluxe room included breakfast that was everyday the same. By the end of our stay we were completely fed up with the same food offers without any variety. Unfortunately, we weren't able to swim in the ocean due to dirty water and extremely huge waves. The beach by the hotel was full of rubbish and trash. Rooms of the hotel were ok, air conditioned and clean. Can't say rooms were stylish or beautiful: old furniture, old bathroom and toilet. Hotel's staff wasn't friendly as expected.

              Definitely recommend to family and friends. Hotel is great and the seaview is fantastic. The breakfast has limited choice and not really value for money. Room service was very slow and choices are limited. The ayurvedic spa was great and staff was very friendly. Kids really enjoyed their stay.

              We were here for 8 day vacation. This is a great resort hotel in Kalutara with plenty of things to do. Rooms are in great conditions and the staff is so friendly. I would recommend this to anyone who would like to visit sril lanka and relax. The ocean front is great. The breakfast and dinner are really good with so many varities everyday. The hotel lobby is such a nice place to be. The pool is actually very nice with the bar around it. You would have such a great time walking by the ocean.

              overrated budget hotel”

              weather

              The transfer from the airport after midnight worked well, very expensive though (50% more expensive than the taxi when we returned). The next day we asked to change the room to a better level and paid for the additional cost, just to have a nicer week and not having to climb 3 flights of stairs every time we wanted to leave the room. That worked out well. Maybe our expectations were too high, having heard about the "most beautiful beaches on earth" in that area. Well, we have seen much, much nicer beaches elsewhere, but tastes might differ. There were some annoying issues though: - an employee several times trying to get a peek into our room through the window when we were changing - the fight we had to pick with the guy responsible for the pool towels to get a second set of towels after we had returned the first one before going on a tour - the difficulties they create with paying the bills. Overall we have staid in much nicer hotels for much less money. Even the local taxi driver told us on the way back to the airport that this hotel is not good and too expensive (I don't know where his expertise comes from, but it fit our own experience).
