Koggala Beach Hotel is a little tired, a little dated, a little rundown in most areas, itsa patchwork of patches to keep it running. Stayed here as part of a southern tour of Sri Lanka, 2 nights was enough for us to find alternative accommodation. The breakfast is fine, plenty of choice, buffet style, but sometimes you have to be... More

We booked the Koggala beach hotel for deluxe rooms. Upon arrival we were slightly disappointed to see the reception area. There were some drinks left in the open with flies swarming over it. However the reception was quick to clean it up. The ladies at the reception were lovley and upgraded us to their sister hotel, the Beach cabanas resort.... More

The hotel is awesome, normally the prices would be much higher for what you get at this place. They upgraded our room, because we missed a night when arriving one day later. The restaurant is very good too, you get all you can eat buffets for around 14 € per person or you eat cheaper a la carte. The beach... More

And everyday there is another theme. The pools and gardens are well maintained and cleaned everyday. They even provide you with free pool towels. I... More

We were on our office trip on 20th June. Location was superb, facing the sea. Hotel buildings are very closer to the sea (25 meters). Rooms were average, bed was comfortable. Swimming pool is small. We were in a ground floor room (Room No : S616) which had direct access to the sea, swimming pool and it was the closest... More

We stayed here for a short night as final destination of our round trip before we left for Colombo and our flight home. Horrible hotel. Loud, crowded, bad food. Food is served in a buffet restaurant, unorganised, no plates available etc. Tourist trap. Don't go there.
