We enjoyed the stay at Cocobay very much. This is a great hotel with amazing staff looking after you all the way and making you feel like a special guest at home. Location is super between noisy Unawatuna and Galle. The food is delicious and you need to try the private BBQ.

We seemed to arrive here all of a sudden, having driven from Colombo and given the hotel approach we were unsure of our choice. Of course any misgivings were totally unfounded. Our reception was excellent and although the room was not ready we had a pizza for lunch while we waited. Our room was an Ocean Privilege and it certainly... More

This is a beautiful hotel set on its own beach. The sea can be a little rough but we had no problem, its always sensible to take advice of the life guard on duty each day. The rooms all look out to sea which means you are able to sit on your balcany and watch the sunset. The rooms are... More

I just spent five nights at this hotel and enjoyed every second. It was close enough to Unawatuna to enjoy the facilities there, but far enough away that it seemed quiet and relaxing.

The hotel was great and located in a quiet nook between the busy and touristy Unawatuna Beach and the city of Galle. A tuktuk ride to either location is very simple, but you have the luxury of a quiet pool and beach spot, as well! The staff here could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. I had a very...

A small hotel with a (virtually) private beach, Coco Bay was a revelation. Not super fancy and better for it. Staff was excellent and service was impeccable - it probably helped that the hotel was not super full and so they actually seemed to know the guests personally and remembered drink and cuisine preferences. The property is literally on the... More
