We stayed here for two nights. The room was clean and simple. The cook was very kind, helpful and she served an amazing food. What we really liked about this place was a beautiful and almost empty beach. They also provided a free sunbeds and umbrella. The sea was without any rocks and dirt but unfortunately the water wasn't really... More

Spent two nights in this place, the staff was friendly and rooms OK. Unfortunately, no mosquito nets in windows, lot of insect in the area, fan that runs only on one speed, cockroach in bathroom and wifi only in on part of the hotel. On the other side, the wonderful beach is quite near and the hotel provides free sunbeds.

Despite being a small property with very basic rooms, Palm Beach Inn lacks nowhere in quality or facilities.. It's right on Galle road so you can get off right in front of the hotel on the main Colombo-Galle/Matara route.. Very friendly and courteous staff, has direct access to the beach and has a lovely garden.. It appeared to be very... More

We booked 2 rooms for 2 nights in 2 bungalows. This inn offers basic amenities:A/C, king sized bed, hot water and towels. Perhaps it would be better if blankets and toiletries were provided. Also, the bathing area was very tiny and the water pressure was not stable. Once, water stopped flowing while my husband was showering and he had to... More

This isnt a very big hotel so if you are looking for very classy well equipped rooms palm beach inn maybe a bit of a let down. However, since I am a budget traveller, I really loved the place. Even though I reached the guest house at 5 in the morning, the staff was awake to welcome us with tea... More

We staid 5 nights and didn't regret our choise. To begin with, the location is great, only 2 minuts to the Indian Ocean. You reach it by walking on a beautiful path where tropical butterfly and flowers are waiting for you. The beach with its golden sand is really incredible, there were almost no people there and you can easily... More

Very good value for money, the rooms are basic but very cosy and come with the all important mosquito net. One minute walk and you are at the beach which is really impressive. It was very quiet and relaxing. The lady at the resort was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. She gave us information on the local market and the... More

This is one of the best places to stay on the west coast. Among big hotel resorts this hotel offers more private and relaxed vacations. Its very quiet and peaceful here and cabanas are very very clean. The beach is a minute away from the hotel, you can actually hear the ocean when sitting on the balcony. Food is very... More
