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

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
