We stayed for two nights. The villas are very nice indeed. Very well thought out with nice seating areas outside really quite a large amount of space. The onsite restaurant was nice as well. The staff were very good and helpful for which beaches to visit and how. There are some bikes which you can borrow to get to the...

Amazing stay in Sri Lanka. We stayed in a hotel for 4 days then at Moonstone for 3 days and it was definitely the highlight of our first visit to Sri Lanka. Stayed here with my 16 year old daughter and husband who was working but felt completely at ease leaving us all day as safe and peaceful. We loved...

My husband and I stayed at Moonstone for three nights (we had already been in Tangalle for a few nights before but wanted to stay in a variety of different places). The rooms are large, clean, minimal but include fresh shower and bath towels, an assortment of coffee and tea, water, basic essentials and a fridge. Also has an AC...

We stayed here for a couple of nights and we loved it! Very spacious room, comfy and wide beds, and a really cool private, outside seating area, with a day bed. The bathroom overall and the shower in particular could do with an upgrade, but just because the rest of the room is up to a very high standard in...

Nice Hotel, very good rooms, book balcony rooms. Food ok. You have to drive 10 min by bike to town Center, 10-20min to the fantastic Goyambokka beaches. The beach behind the road is ok but to loud because of the road.

Hello Meidom, we appreciate your review and thank you for commenting that you enjoyed your stay here. Soon, much of the road traffic will be using a new alternate route to Tangalle which should greatly reduce the beach noise, good thing because it really is a nice beach and only 2 minutes walk from Moonstone Villas.

We recently stayed 2 nights at Moonstone Villas - our room was great, spotlessly clean and spacious. We particularly liked the large balcony and the day bed, great for relaxing after a long day, and watching the monkeys jump from roof to roof! The pool area is compact, but lovely, and the grounds are well tended. The staff are friendly...

After reading all the excellent reviews about this hotel I thought my partner and I should check it out. I've never been to such an over rated hotel. The grounds were nothing special. Although the pool was clean. The pizza was excellent but service very slow considering there was only 2 tables occupied. The English lady running the hotel was...

Dear Mr. Barter, we always appreciate hearing our guest comments about our hotel and our service. We find it odd that you did not enjoy our gardens as most of our guests specifically comment on how lush they are and perhaps the dry season has resulted in less flowers than usual. Raelene has been training some new staff lately so...

We had several meals here and enjoyed every one. The woodfire pizza we had was very tasty and big enough for 2 to share. Our evening meals were delicious and would recommend the fish and chips. Fresh fish and light batter. The staff were friendly and the owner very courteous and a resident of Canada as well as Sri Lanka.

The pizzas have always been great at Moonstone, but the other day i ventured to have a beef burger - it was sensational! perfectly cooked, 100% quality meat and a decent price too. I haven't found much better western food in Sri lanka...

Hi Warren, thanks for your review. As a pizza lover, I am glad to hear that you also enjoyed the burger - we do make our own burger buns, burger patties from top sirloin beef, and have trained our staff in proper cooking. When you come again maybe try a Tuna burger or a Veggi burger - they are also...
