The Pegasus Reef Hotel is located between the Airport and Colombo city and – depending on traffic – at least 30min, but more likely one hour away from each. If you want to visit Colombo, you are better off picking a hotel in the city. If you are just transiting, you may as well stay close to the airport. While... More

Further when we took the kids to pool we were sitting along the pool side.A doctors get together was to be started in... More

We had one night here before flying back to the UK. Perhaps it was just the night we stayed, but there were two parties going on and one of them was ridiculously loud. The hotel served its purpose as somewhere not too far from the airport to spend the last night, but I wouldn't want to stay any longer, as... More

This a nice hotel with nice facilities but when it was bed time, I could not sleep because of the loud music of the mega party in the hotel. Many people from outside came... If not food was good, people nice, clean, near the seaside, nice facilities and nice room. A lot of weddings.

This is a really terrible hotel. Avoid it at all costs. The rooms, pool are all terrible. Very poor quality . The hotel has a real cheap feel to it. Poorly trained staff with very low quality customer service. They are not trained for sift skills. Low class rooms. Unreasonable charges. food is fairly okay. Rather desert. Low quality pool...

This was the first stop for my small group tour, and it was just delightful. Our second floor room faced the beach, and although we couldn't see it, we could certainly hear it. The rooms were large and pleasant, and the staff friendly and helpful. The first time we went to breakfast we couldn't find yoghurt, and asked the staff.... More

I spent a total of 5 nights in this hotel and used it as a 'hub' hotel when we'd pass through colombo. They had a decent length pool to cool down in and also have gym and beach access. Their buffets were great catering for vegetarians as well but too many nights in a row would have made the food... More

Nice resort. pool , the beach , the gym, the greens. the food isn't so great. it is 20 mins form Colombo without traffic, so if you do not plan to go the city often then it is fine. overall a comfortable stay indeed!

I went to Pegasus Reef Hotel today to attend to a wedding. The hotel has a nice strip of beach for it's own. We were at the hotel premises since early morning. The staff were friendly. But on one occasion I had a small anguish towards one waiter who was serving in the dining area near the pool. We were... More

Good hotel for couples and families. Located on a beach although you are not allowed to enter the water as it is considered dangerous. Strong wi-fi accessibility on the beach. Lobby of hotel is very boring and staff did not seem quite welcoming. Food is decent and has live music playing in restaurant. Beware of monitor lizards crawling up to... More
