My Husband and I stayed here from 28th December for 17 nights. The staff were incredible. Nothing was too much trouble. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite which was very comfortable and kept spotlessly clean. The pool, surrounding area, and gardens were immaculate. Food wise, a typical buffet. Varied but food was always lukewarm, which we found wherever we... More

Lovely gardens, mostly friendly welcoming staff with a few exceptions and a nice pool and location straight onto the beach. However, we were misled by our tour company into booking a 'dine around' package which was described totally wrongly in the brochure. There is a main restaurant, buffet style at all meals - breakfast, lunch n dinner. There is a... More

Had big hopes but this hotel is just ordinary, nothing special. Service is not great especially the ones near the pool. They were out for people who were tipping especially from foreign couples and did not care for the locals at all. They simply ignore us and attended mostly Russian tourists. Food on the other hand let us down. The... More

Stayed at The Palms Nov 23rd 2014 to Dec 8th 2014. The staff were very polite, helpful and happy. The food was very good and we were even given a course on cooking Sri Lankan style curries. The rooms were comfortable and cleaned very well every day. Thanks to everyone that made our stay so pleasurable.

We stayed at The Palms Hotel for 3 weeks, xmas and new-year. We were very pleased with the hotel,the staff and the food. The cleaning of the room was also good.The hotel is a little away from the town and other hotels, very calm in the evening. Only a little beach taverna with good seafood and small dishes just outside... More

Visited the hotel just after Christmas ,2014 and stayed with family for 2 nights. Though the hotel is old, the rooms are cosy, adequately furnished and kept clean. Ideal for relaxation as the beach is just outside the resort. Found the staff to be friendly and welcoming. Food is a tad expensive but there is a good variety.On the minus... More

Comfortable rooms, attentive staff. The meals are varied with a lot of choice. Right on the beach, but the kids preferred the pool. I recommend taking one of the three wheelers in the entrance of the hotel to show you around Beruwela, bentota and kalutera attractions. We have and we were highly satisfied: brief garden, turtle hatchery, local market, local... More

We visited during Christmas time. Rooms needs to be updated urgently. Television and furniture's are all antique. The size of bathroom is horrible. Restaurant staff were also rude. Avoid visiting such resorts

we were staying at palms to welcome our 2015, the good thing about the resort is that the hospitality of the staff is just amazing, the staff is very worm and welcoming and always at your service, food is good. It's right on the beach but very few activities take place at the beach. Resort is very big but old... More
