Stayed at Dickman resort for two nights and we enjoyed every minut of our stay. We arrived with our flight in the middle of the night and had a pick up arranged by the hotel for a small fee, very smooth. This is a beautiful place with a lovely garden, awesome pool and truly great staff. Very cosy and colorful... More

This was my second time at Dickman. Still the best what I have seen so far in Negombo. Still very caring for Details, still a nice retreat. But Little things happened which not need to happen. Cloth of mine did not return from the washing and disappeared. Did not get it back, but no offer to give me a refund... More

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

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

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.
