GOLDEN STAR BEACH HOTEL - NEGOMBO BEACH ROAD ============================================= Ok let me get to the basics first. This hotel is probably one of the oldest hotels in this area, built in 1970s and has changed hands, and names several times.

I wrote a review of the Golden Star Beach Hotel previously. I had never seen such a bad hotel. I'm not a negative person. You can see I have written many reviews and they are all positive except for this hotel. I couldn't believe the number of good reviews the hotel gets, especially from Sri Lankans so I called in...

This hotel is ok, the rooms are quite run down but served the purpose as an overnight stopover after a long flight. The pool area and bar are very nice and breakfast was excellent! It is in quite good location for shops and restaurants!

The hoteI is a bit noisy and not very comfortable but the ayurvedic spa is exceptional. Ask for Sujith who is a very nice and talented therapist and I had the best ayurvedic massages I have never had.

Wished I had bought a piece of... More
