I stayed at Dickman Resort for my last two nights in Sri Lanka as I wanted a peaceful, relaxing haven away from the noise of Negombo and I wasn't disappointed! Nothing beats fantastic service and every staff member at Dickman, including the owner himself goes to great lengths to ensure your stay is superlative. I stayed in the Green Room... More

This is a wonderful hotel that will stay in your memories for long time. My husband and I stayed here for 3 days very recently and it soon became clear that it was mainly a heterosexual-friendly hotel. Not a problem at all for us - we have heterosexual friends, male and female, so it wasn't really an issue for us,... More

Stayed at this great resort for 3 days in December. All the staff were so pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. We stayed in the Purple room, which is very roomy and has a great "open air" shower. The cleaning staff were great and the bar staff were particularly helpful! I would definitely stay here again, hopefully very soon... More

Booked in for 5 days & barely left the resort because we stayed in the mango suite which is massive with all modern conveniences (feels like your own apartment) & the staff totally pampered us during our stay. If you're in Negombo, I highly recommend Dickman resort... Gorgeous place & people!!

This hotel was very conveniently close to airport, which was partly the reason why I booked it. The other reason was that it was the number 1 hotel in Negombo on Tripadvisor. As the previous poster has stated, it does appeal to a particular kind of people. My wife and I (we are a retired couple) stayed here for 1... More

Unfortunately we only spent 1 night here before we left Sri Lanka. Airport pick up is easy to organise and every one is very friendly and service oriented. The breakfast was the best I had in Sri Lanka. Fresh tea, fruits, jam, omelettes and toast! Very tasty! The hotel has a very obvious guest type which is a bit special.... More

We took a taxi from and paid only $10 to get to the resort. It was a 20 minutes drive from the airport. The location of resort is brilliant.
