We had a really nice stay here, Pritty was very helpful and helped us to get around and see more of the beautiful Tangalle region and especially the animals. :) Highly recommend this place, plus some of the staff speak German. The room was nice and clean, with a fan, mosquito net and attached bathroom.

Visited this restaurant with a group of friends all desperate for fresh seafood. Val found meals delicious and great value for money. Recommend butterfish or jumbo prawns if they have it as catch of the day. Thai red prawn curry was fab. Tables on the beach which was a great atmosphere. Would definitely go back

We only spent one night at KingFisher, but it was really great! The rooms are simple, but very clean! The owner and her sister are very (!) kind and helpful. This is a place we will definitely visit again!

My girlfriend and I got a fantastic massage here. We didn't stay but it didn't matter, 1 hr full body massage for 3,000 Rs. Would highly recommend! The lady who runs it is a charismatic person who does the massages and they certainly don't disappoint.

The location is good being right by the beach, but we booked 2 rooms at 2000LKR each and when it came to payment Priti said that as one room was large the cost would be increased to 2500LKR. We paid but felt that she should have told us upon arrival if the room price confirmed had increased. Also, the food...

Firstly the internet was not working, staff said the internet guy will came and fix it but no one showed up amd of course Internet didn't work. We didn't mind it as much.

Great location - quiet place, just by the ocean, 10 minutes from center. The manager (owner) is very friendly, caring person, excellent cook, doesn´t force you to buy any goods or services (which is elsewhere at Sri Lanka quite common). She doesn´t have any contract with tuk-tuk drivers, they have no commission here, that´s why some of them they don´t...

I stayed in Kingfisher while I was in Tangalle. Beach was just next to rooms and area was quiet. If you want a simple and cheap accommodation next to the beach, go to Pretty's rooms.

My wife and I ate dinner the other nite at Kfishers. It was very good. We had a craving for Thai and ordered the green curry prawns and the red curry yellow fin. They were both outstanding. We also ordered the avocado salad which was very good....lettuce, tomato, and lots of slices of avocado. The prices are a bit more...

I was there with my son (16 months) and husband and we just loveeeee the place. It has a hart and that is the most important for us.
