Stayed at Portofino, Tangalle with friends and family for 4 days. The resort is actually about 15km from Tangalle. Though the staff at the resort are friendly, the property is not the best. Makes sense to checkin with a half board or full board at the hotel since there aren't any good restaurants nearby. However, the quality of the food...

We visited this hotel after booking through their Head office. We asked for a suit with a nice view when making the booking. We got an early check in and we were very happy with the welcome we received. Once we went to our suit, we realised that the a.c was not working. We informed the reception and a maintenance...

Visited this place recently and have to say this is a great location for a vacation. Friendly and attentive staff. Good food and all other facilities are awesome too! Rooms are well kept and clean. Air conditioner was a little noisier but it was okay I guess. Keep it up! cheers!

1) Poor food - restaurant buffet for dinner served lukewarm food and it took over half an hour to be asked if we wanted a drink. 2) Multiple problems in the room - woken up on several occasions by the electricity going off/on; constant dripping from the air conditioning unit (at times buckets of water pouring out); and lamp shades...

Our holiday was made so special by the staff at the hotel. Food was excellent and the rooms were clean and up to standards. Chef and F&B manager should be credited for their services and most importantly the front office staff who welcomed us and did our check in and the checkout very efficiently.

The Resort is located very remotely in Ranna, and even though it says Tangalle in its address, Tangalle which is a small town with many eateries, is 15 Km away....so not reachable unless you have a vehicle with you! If one's intention is to spend time looking at the blue sea, a clean beach, and watching the fishermen return with...

Good hotel. Food is good. Rooms were clean. Very calm environment. Staff is helpful. Only negative point was there were no shops near by. How ever liquor was expensive and they include tax also. But had good time.
