We stayed at Dancing Mango for four nights and absolutely loved it! An amazing private villa, beautiful pool big and clean room and just a short 10 minute walk to the beach/hustle and bustle. Brett was an amazing host made us feel very welcome from the word go. Would highly recommend staying at Dancing Mango! We will defiantly be back!

Had a great stay at the dancing mango! A beautiful private property with a nice pool. 7 minutes away from the beach and "party" places. Ideal for a peaceful and relaxing stay in Sri Lanka.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Dancing Mango for three lovely days. Everything was absolutely fantastic! We loved being near enough to the beach, bars and restaurants to walk easily but far enough away to feel secluded and private. Sherrylee and Brett were the perfect hosts - so gracious, friendly and helpful! The room itself is perfectly set up - the bed is absolutely massive and really comfortable, the A/C is powerful and quiet and the room and bathroom were spotless. I think Sherrylee and Brett have thought of every detail and they made our stay a relaxing and peaceful one. I'd recommend Dancing Mango!

Dancing Mango is absolutely beautiful, even better than the pictures. Nice and quiet but still close enough to all the good spots. The hosts are fantastic and we ended up staying an extra night. 10/10

Dancing Mango is the perfect place to stay in Hikkaduwa! It is stated in a quit area but very close to the beach and restaurants. When you lay down in the sun in the amazing garden by the pool it feels Like your in paradise. The rooms are clean and decorated very beautiful. We really recommended this place and if we're coming back to Sri Lanka we definitly will come back to this place!
