Could use some updating in the pool area. Becareful what room you get. On the first part of our trip we had an older room with a poorly working air con that leaked water in our room and a rather tired looking bathroom. On the end part of our trip we had a deluxe room and it was much better.... More

This hotel is quite decent - linens were clean, rooms were renovated; has a beach at the back. Breakfast has variety, even for vegetarians. Generally a decent hotel. Rooms are quite spacious and beds are clean.

Stayed here the first two nights via an Intrepid tour. It is an old hotel, not well maintained, but it works. The paint is falling off the walls, and it probably hasn't been updated in a few years, at least this is what struck me upon arrival. The rooms are basic with fan/AC and small fridge/kettle. Beds are okay, with... More

This hotel was a very good deal. They had the best breakfast buffet of all hotels we stayed at during our two week trip. The dinner was also high standard and a la carte as well. Pool is clean and nice, maybe a bit too much chloric but I guess it´s necessary. The bar, located in front of the sea... More

Got stuck staying here at the beginning of an Intrepid trip. They put me in a room directly above the pool where they were having a live band. When I complained that I couldn't sleep because of the unbelievably loud noise, I was basically told that it was Christmas time in Sri Lanka and to deal with it. The hotel... More

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. It is located at the start of Negombo Beach road as you arrive from Colombo International Airport to Negombo. Everything... More
