Property Description

TropiTurtle Guesthouse is a small guesthouse in the little village of Polhena South Sri Lanka.

We have sea-view rooms and dormitory and a balcony terrace from which you can see the turtles pop up from the water!

Polhena is great for snorkling, diving, whalewatching, surfing and beachhanging.

We have double rooms and dormitories.
We serve breakfast (150lk/350lk), but you can also use the common kitchen.

Polhena and the nearby city of Matara are both pretty unspoiled by tourism, so an excellent place to meet the locals.

and Mirissa's day and nightlife are only 9 km away.

-laundry service
-common kitchen
-scooter/surfboard/snorkeling gear for rent
-many Tours

    Nice hostel right on the beach. Lovely owner. If you are looking for something quiet this is the place for your. It's a bit out of town but there isn't that much to see in matara anyway.

    Staff were great. Rooms had all the essentials but could have been cleaner - although the air con didn't work. Used the bikes for the day for free but I don't know if that's a regular service or just because we went in off season. Cheap enough to be worth it but don't know if it's worth staying more than a night.

    Staff were nice and location was perfect literally across the road from the beach where the turtles swim. We pre booked a double room but when we arrived the lady said there was none left as they had sold them to people who walk in and book on arrival! We had to stay in a four person doorm instead. It was like a sauna!!! One fan on the roof which did nothing at all. Rooms are dirty with bugs everywhere. Bathroom was disgusting! Not worth the price at all. I wouldn’t stay here again or reccomend!
