When you try to access the hotel from the gall road, you will think twice to use the road but when you reach the hotel , you will not mind taking this road. The staff are very friendly and will go out of the way to make your holiday a joyful one. the rooms are ok. The sea front is... More

Nice Location directly on the beach - but to go out is very difficult, because there are many beachboys and they only want to get a "white lady" - any age :-) The hotelmanagement is not happy to get complains from ladies, they dont take care for the beachboy-problem - so I never was swimming in the ocean!

I am really surprised by some of the reviews for this hotel. We stayed here over the Christmas/New Year period and we cannot praise the hotel and it's staff highly enough. On our arrival, our luggage was collected by the hotel porters and we were lead inside through wonderful manicured gardens where we were greeted with drinks and our luggage... More

We booked here at the last minute due to being bumped by another hotel on New Years Eve. Nowhere on Agoda's boking info was it stated that there was a "compulsory Gala Dinner" for an extra $250, but it ended up being charged to our credit card anyway. When we arrived, we queeried this and asked to be refunded for... More

Perfect beach Location! Read on to see why. An aesthetic pleasure. This hotel is beautifully designed. From the covered walkway as you enter through arches and beside small pools with lilies and goldfish. Lovely views created in all the public spaces. Fresh flowers and the Christmas and New Year decorations were magical and tasteful. The dining room is covered and... More

Stayed at The Palms Hotel on our last night in Sri Lanka. The drive onto the hotel property is interesting because the road leading into the hotel goes through a small town. The hotel is surprisingly big and is right on a nice stretch of beach. Our room on the second floor looked onto the beach (with some trees in... More

My wife and I booked a suite at The Palms for our week long honeymoon mostly because other hotels in the vicinity like Taj and Saman Vilas were way past our budget (New Year rush), excellent location and the reviews here. We reached the hotel at around 1130 in the night and after a little confusion over rooms, we missed... More

The Palrms Hotel Beruwala, Sri Lanka Our choice for this hotel was made, because this is one of the few hotels with direct access to the Beach The Suite: The Suite was on the 2nd floor. It included all the amenities one can expect from a 4-star hotel.The room was very bright, the air-cnnditionin working fine without any noise. Unfortunately... More
