          When we checked into our room we immediately noticed there were some issues & it did seem to be very welcoming. We alerted the front office team & management with our concerns. They immediately acted to ensure the issues were rectified quickly. From the Owner, Management, Front Office, Restaurant & Housekeeping all without exception ensure the rest of our staff was excellent.

          Very friendly staff that passed on lots of useful information, breakfast is really nice. It is on a hill so tuktuk sometimes charged a bit more to get here. Don’t really like the floor plan for the room as the toilet and shower is not in a separate room. In all very pleasant stay.

          Loved the views from my room looking out into the beach. My room was on ground floor so I had the swimming pool attached to my room. Bathroom was unique ok, open from top ( you will understand when you stay here) for anyone in swimming pool hearing you are in washroom. Really enjoyed staying here and will return.

          Birthday weekend”
          Booked the penthouse for my family for a weekend. The penthouse is fantastic – lots of space, clean, great features like a rain shower, Jacuzzi, flatscreen TV, sunbeds and large balcony area. The view was great as well. Unfortunately, the weather was not kind so we didn’t explore much. All staff we dealt with were courteous and friendly. The food tasted great but a little more variety or creativity would have been good. And as this is a seaside destination, it was odd that such little seafood featured on the menu.

          Worst Hotel Ever”
          Do not stay here...be warned. I stayed 2 nights and there is only one thing that is any good...The view..However it is now blocked a bit by a new high rise hotel being constructed. The location is not close to the beach as they state but a 10 minute walk down a hill... The rooms are very sparse and industrial...The bed is a nightmare..The mattress is on a pedestal and is very low and difficult to get in and out...( I am fit and practice yoga so it was still a challenge for me) The breakfast food is terrible and always COLD...I arrived when they opened for breakfast...Cold food .... The staff are friendly but that is the end of any service you may need I have travelled for over 35 years and experienced many many hotels...this is the worse hotel

          Great place but.....”
          Amazing location with 2 big pools. It takes 10mins steep down hill to get to the beach. The staff were great too. But... the room could do with a bit of tlc as could the pool area and the rooms as others have mentioned are not well thought out. I stayed in a swim up room and you do compromise on privacy but now able to step off your balcony into the pool is super. I would stay here again at the massively reduced rate we got booking on agoda. Wouldn't pay the rack rate though.

          Villa thawthisa , value for money!”
          1 the view 2 the pool 3 the open air bathroom
          The hotel was great and the location offers spectacular views of rhe ocean , however the lighting inside the rooms are a little too white in colour , it gives you the feeling as though you're in an office! The restaurant upstairs doesnt have a very wide array of food to choose from and what is available is very highly priced in comparison to other hotels of the same standard or better. Also the rooms need more curtain coverage or blinds to block out the morning sun, but these are are all minor issues as most people looking to stay at this hotel would most probably spend more time outside sightseeing than i aide the hotel. All in all great place to stay!

          NOT RECOMMENDED DO NOT STAY HERE ”
          The moment we checked in we could see the hotel was unfinished THIS IS NOT A FIVE STAR HOTEL , it was dirty & disgusting, everything was dirty including our room, Sunbed, chairs, towels, sheets very disappointing. The staff spoke little English so when your ordered food & drinks this became a problem. We had booked a nine night stay to watch the cricket in Galle but we left as soon as we could as soon as the cricket was over then we checked out. Overall disappointed and would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

          Everything is brilliant apart from half broken toilet flusher we had our room. Their staff is very friendly. Chef Duminda added some items to breakfast menu just for my 1 year old daughter. No other hotel would go to that extent to serve a customer. F&B Manager was going table to table askimg about food quality, and its great to see such care for Locals as Sri Lankan hotels are known for treating local guests badly. Would visit this place again for sure.

          Pros and Cons”
          I will start with the best thing about the hotel, its staff! They are amazing, friendly and quite helpful and attentive. For the price I paid I expected a room with amenities that were maintained. The bidet was temperamental, the appliances were a bit rusty. Every time we showered, the water would leak into the room floor through the glass separator. The Sri Lankan breakfast was good in the buffet but the waffles, pancakes and other western style food were bland and dry. Because it was the festival weekend all guests had to arrive through the downtrodden, broken, and a much much longer route. This was not really the hotel's fault, but they should have communicated this to us prior to arrival.

          pictures don’t show the truth. Coming to the hotel was challenging. Cleanness was awful. Ants and lizards were over all the place. Restaurant is okay! Over all the view of the sea from up there was the best. Don’t recommend booking at this place. You can find a place worths your money.

          Lovely location but...”
          Rather than boutique they should be marketing themselves as more rustic. The location is beautiful and the views amazing. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Even the food was really enjoyable. Beautiful, clean swimming pools and the rooms themselves were more than generous in size. However, the room finishings were very disappointing. Balcony chairs were grubby, the bed while huge is based on a pedestal that you almost have to climb down off of and the floor of the shower is covered in stones that really only makes showering almost impossible. The jacuzzi baths not only take an eternity to fill but by the time the water jets are covered with water the tank has run out of hot water. The chromed faucets and other accessories are pitted with corrosion, the wi-fi is pretty much useless with very poor download speeds and the TV choice is very limited.

          The hotel is located on a hill in an eco resort. Every day i walked at least 2 times up and down and saw birds, a snake, a porcupine, monkeys, and various other. Exciting walk. The hill is not too dark and not too steep. The hotel is due to its location absolutely quite, very good for relaxing. Rooms are clean with morning and evening cleaning service. I had breakfast included and this was a blast with a stunning view on the rooftop. The pools were amazing and clean as well. The staff was absolutely friendly and helping. We wanted to have a room with natural stones in the shower and the staff showed us several rooms among which we could choose. Funny thing, the bath was built within a room and separated by a glass wall. The milky glass was not high enough and so you could always see the upper body. The bathroom door could not be closed completely and the walls did not meet with the ceiling so you could hear everything. For us it was less disturbing than a door in another room that made noise when closing. The light is white, yes, but we only switched on the balcony light and only for grooming the white lights. I would come back.

          Great honeymoon location.”
          We were welcomed on a special transport "a buggy car" in which the hotel arranged to pick us up from Gall. The hotel staff always welcomed us warmly every time we met... And the breakfast was extremely good specially with the view to blow your mind.... There were few minor issues with the second wash basin at the room(Superior) But it's worth the money anyway... So I recommend it to all specially to enjoy on your honeymoon. Thank you team at Villa Thawthisa. Will be back again soon... Cheers...
