Very welcoming staff, attentive to make the stay of guests as comfortable as possible. Staff were anxious to provide good services, from the excellent breakfasts available till noon to refreshment throughout the day, and the weekly party ensured everyone got to know each other. You were given the opportunity to relax - totally - and could engage with the activities... More

I loved every minute I spent at Dickman Resort from the moment I walked in the entrance to the moment I left. All the staff are genuinely beautiful and caring. No request is too much and every need is offered before you even have the chance to think about it. The rooms are excellent and well appointed. The central pool... More

Just returned from my 12th visit to DIckman Resort, and I have to say, after all my previous stays of minimum 2 weeks each, that it's getting better every time! Beautiful grounds, lovely staff who know how to entertain the guests, and always surprising new additions.

We chose Dickman Resort for three reasons: the 'no children policy ', the fact that it is a small boutique resort and the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. We were here in every area a fantastic experience. From the pickup to the airport with impeccable car until the last second this resort makes the promise. The small scale makes you feel... More

We were the first in Sri Lanka and Dickman Resort was the best option to stay. This is a truly boutique hotel with small rooms, furnished very tastefully, elegantly and comfortably. It's not a glamorous luxury, it is a unique and very personal style that makes you feel at home. The owner ensures a pleasant, unobtrusive atmosphere, staff is professionally... More

We stayed in Dickman Resort for 11 days and these days were one of the most relaxing and wonderful days we ever had in our Holidays - and we travel a lot. We felt like in Paradise from the moment as we did our first step into the Resort. The architecture and decor is designed down to the details and... More

Everything down from the greeting on arrival to the breakfasts was perfect and Dick and his staff make charming hosts. The Rooms are spotless and spacious and the pool fantastic.

I find it difficult to write a comprehensive review of this property simply because I found it to be flawless in all regards. Operating and Managing a small boutique property is a challenge anywhere in the world, however I can imagine Sri Lanka takes it to another level at times. When issues with door locks and water did arise during... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed there over new years eve and it was wonderful. I´m pretty sure this resort is the nicest place to stay in Negombo. Dick is lovely as well as the staff.
