I spent a few days here and it was almost perfect. Let's get the one moan out of the way. The WiFi wasn't working throughout the few days I was there (3 or 4, I can't remember exactly) and though it was always "Maybe tomorrow", it never happened and not a lot seemed to be being done about it. Next door hotels apparently had WiFi working, so it was limited to the Ibis.
OK, moan out of the way. The location is perfect: right on the beach a couple of km east of Tangalle town, palm trees, hammocks, large "four poster beds" and recliners. The shore right outside the Ibis is sandy, but also has rocks. The big waves mean you need to choose your swimming spot with care but the staff will help here.
The food is good with some excellent seafood. The rooms are a mix of cabins under the palms or in one of the larger structures, all of which blend in well with the environment.
Perhaps the best thing about the Ibis is that the German Anjelika and her Sri Lankan husband Ranjith run an orphanage nearby and your stay at the Ibis will help support that worthwhile project.More
