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

Am I repeating what others have already said? Am I being biased? Have I been before? Do i intend returning? The answer to all four questions is yes! There may be more luxurious resorts elsewhere but I doubt if the welcome, attentive staff and overall ambience of the place can be equalled. Breakfast fruit plate puts other more expensive establishments... More

As three married women traveling without our husbands, we were not the typical guests of Dickmans. But, that did not stop them from welcoming us with open arms and making the Resort feel like our home away from home. We choose this resort because it looked like it had character and style with modern amenities and we were not wrong.... More

We loved this small, specialty boutique hotel in Negombo. It is discretely located on a small yet safe side street. When you enter the hotel you feel as if you've entered a private little sanctuary. The vibe here is great with very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are enormous and air conditioned! A big plus in Sri Lanka. I... More

Stayed there 3 weeks mid September/early October 2014 after 3 previous visits 2006,2010,2014.This has been a much appreciated venue over the past 10 years - original and secure, but one wonders whether it is now reaching its 'sell-by' date, and whether the owner may be reaching the same conclusion - for whatever reason. Off season, but several other previous customers... More
