I went to Moonstone for dinner as I was visiting Tangalle for a few days. The selection on the menu was so good I went back the following night. The owner is Canadian, a lovely woman who kindly gave myself and my friend clippings from her Aloe plant to help with our sunburn! Although I didn't stay at the villas...

Moonstone Villas is well located across the road from the beach . The very safe swimming beach of Goyambokka is close by . Villas are well appointed , spacious and very clean Excellent food is available in the restaurant. The Canadian owner ensures standards are very high Recommend as excellent value for money and a relaxed informal vibe.

A small and neat hotel with a welcoming lady owner who made us feel at home right away. Our room on the second floor was large, clean, and well-maintained, and the attached bathroom adequately stocked with basic toiletries. Two stand-outs about the place were the sparkling clean swimming pool and neat grounds; most 3/4-star villas we've been to tend to...

The room was quiet, very clean and spacious with large comfortable beds. The private, spacious balcony had comfortable furnishings including a day bed. The very clean, refreshing pool is set amid tranquil, lush grounds. We ate a number of meals in the restaurant (mostly western, but Sri Lankan available), all excellent quality and reasonably priced. The pizza was fabulous. The...

Hello and thank you for your review. Although the beach across the road from Moonstone is a safe beach for swimming and is very quiet with often few people, you are correct that there are some lovely beaches just a few minutes ride away. We think we are well positioned to see and do just about everything you can in...

The villa room was lovely- spacious, comfortable, very clean, nicely decorated and thoughtfully equipped! We didn't make use of our balcony terrace but it was nice to have it there. We loved the plentiful breakfast especially the French toast and the fresh fruit. The staff were attentive and very kind allowing us to check out late to suit our needs....
