My family and I had a reunion almost after 5 five years and we decided to travel to the Eastern province and Nilaveli Beach hotel as the obvious choice . However we changed our idea of staying 02 nights at Nilaveli beach hotel and stayed one night at the Sober Island Navy hotel , if you can call it one... More

This hotel is set in a very treed location right on the beach near Trincomalee. It is set out well and all the trees around mean it is lovely and cool and you can see the ocean through the trees which is nice. Our room was large but tired and no ocean view unfortunately. The pool is awesome and very... More

We were a group of six adults. We were given a chalet and a delux double room. The chalet was better than the double room. But I think it was ok for the price. The rooms had all the facilities that a good hotel would offer. W had breakfast at the buffet and it was good. The hotel is at... More

Went to visit hotel for the beach and snorkeling which did not disappoint. Food was overall good with good selection of western and Sri Lankan food. Staff was overall friendly and helpful. Bathrooms a bit basic and needs upgrade, no proper shampoo etc provided, only 10 channels on TV and WiFi only in reception area.

The Nilaveli Beach Hotel is lucky that it has Pigeon Island staring at it across the sea. If not for its location this hotel would not rate more than a two. The rooms are average and in many senses dilapidated, the food mediocre and the the service is lousy. Though the hotels key attraction is its proximity to Pigeon Island... More

My partner and I had spent 3 days in Nilaveli and stayed here for 1 of the nights. The hotel is on a good location facing a gorgeous part of the beach. The beach front area was really pretty and well-stocked with deck chairs under the trees. I had spent the entire day just veging out, enjoying the beautiful beach.... More

We stayed here for 3 days and loved every minute of it! The rooms are quite basic but clean and have AC, a fridge and a kettle with tea and coffee. The beach was amazing - as close as you can get to a private beach with white sand and clear waters. The pool was great and offered shade if... More

This is an ideal location for a family holiday. A minute walk from a lovely sandy beach. Fantastic swimming pool. Accommodation in rooms or in chalets. Buffet meal with so many varieties including Sri Lankan, English & continental meals. Found it difficult to choose the right kind of food as there were so many to choose from. There were some...

I am honestly at a loss as to how this place gets such good reviews. The beach is very nice, but there are only a very small number of places to sit - and these are terrorised by crows. The main problem being the staff are not clearing plate and instead sitting around not doing anything. The service in general... More
