Stayed here for 2 nights in February 2015. Review: The room: Cramped bathrooms, twin beds only given, probably they dont have a king size bed. Dining : Fishermans wharf (Available for a-la-carte during lunch/dinner) and Golden Palms (For Buffet breakfast and lunch/dinner for full board bookings). First day we were late for lunch around 2:15 pm and were sent to... More

For our tenth trip to Sri Lanka we stayed at The Palms Hotel for the first time. It's position on the beach is tremendous as only a short walk up the beach are bars, cafes and shops The beach itself is great for swimming as it shelves gently and predictably for at least 100 Metres and is than only chest...

I have visited this place twice and the experience was great. Both the times i was there on the weekend. The weekend buffet was wonderful. Rooms were average and not the modern type. However it had all the general items. Their pool was great and the beach was good. The place can improve and needs to be more promoted.

This was the 3rd location that we visited on our trip. The rooms and view was a pleasant change. The bathroom is not at all in line with the rooms. It's really small and doesn't and inconvenient. The live performance in the evening is a pleasant change. The food is generally the same over the meals and the chefs at... More

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
