This is an excellently managed resort with charming and helpful staff situated in the heart of Negombo, a short stroll from the main restaurants, shops and beach. Tucked in a quiet back street, the resort offers an excellent breakfast, colourfully decorated rooms with all facilities, AC, ceiling fan, tea and coffee, bar fridge, and airport pick up and drop off...

As a seasoned traveller I can honestly say this is one of the best hotels I have ever been to. Hotel is probably the wrong description as Dickmans Resort is more like a place of calm and a great place to relax. The hotel is a stunning piece of architecture and modern facilities blend brilliantly with outstanding Sri Lankan interior... More

A 15 minute journey from the airport is this amazing boutique Hotel for a small fee you can arrange with the hotel to be picked up from the airport which is hassle free. We believe everyone visiting Sri Lanka should stop off at Dickmans Resort even for few days to recuperate from the long haul journey and witness a truly... More

This is a very pleasant nd well kept boutique hotel. It's adults only so its a very grown up peaceful place. The rooms are large and well kept. I would splash out on a room with a balcony or a suite (The Blue suite overlooks the pool and is probably best). The rooms on the ground floor open directly onto... More

Stayed there for 3 nights. What can I say? Everone was so freindly and attentive, Staff made an attempt to speak to you. It didnt feel like a hotel at all; more like a home away from home. i can see why some guests stayed for weeks. Damith and Sehan were very kind and helped organise a day trip for... More

PERFECTION….somehow even this word seems inadequate….an oasis of calm, an amazingly warm and welcoming environment, a genuinely friendly, fun and caring staff, a beautiful, pristine swimming pool, an amazing breakfast, a difficult place to leave.

Excellent rooms, clean and large. The rooms on the top floor have balconies overlooking the pool which in itself is very inviting and kept super clean by the pool staff. Staff are very helpful and friendly; with organising trips, shopping tips and on restaurants. A definite place to re-visit.

My second time, and again the hospitality, the really warm welcome and attentiveness to all my needs are strong features of my stay. I combined this stay with a tour - really nice venues, history, culture and rest - perfect planning by the Dickman staff. But it was a real pleasure to return to the superb welcome in Negombo. I...

I had an excellent experience at the Dickman Resort. The staff was extremely professional yet at the same time very friendly. Also, the property is beautiful. There is a large garden with a pool and seating and dining areas that were great for relaxing and chatting with the staff and other guests. Finally, the owner Dick, was extremely friendly and...

This extremely well run, super friendly establishment nestled just off the main road in this beachside resort really is a home from home. Staff are very attentive and friendly. The rooms are very well appointed and decorated to a high standard. WiFi available throughout The VIP package includes a three item daily laundry service. This really is a hidden treasure
