Dear Guest, Greetings from Portofino Resort Tangalle and Thank you for taking your valuable time to write what you thought of us.

This resort is remote, the beach is extensive but dangerous for swimming. The hotel building and surrounds have seen better days with only one restaurant/bar operating.The staff especially in the restaurant show an indifferent attitude not at all typical of most of Sri Lanka. The food generally is of poor quality with little attention to replenishing buffets.

We stay in the suite room, large space, Meals are good. Friendly and helpful staff. Quiet and calm place. Good for honeymoon couples. Two night stay will be ideal. From the main road to Portofino takes 15 to 20 minutes.
