We chose Don's for one night in order to be close to the airport for an early morning flight the next day. But it came close to ruining our holiday. Having had some amazing experiences in a beautiful island our party of 8 ended up having a sleepless night and taking home hundreds of mosquito bites as souvenirs! Overall impression... More

I read the reviews after I booked a quick recuperation from sickness weekend so I was a bit nervous what to find. With all hotels it partly depends on what you expect... for the price (Negombo - and indeed Sri Lanka is getting more and more expensive for Asian countries with less guaranteed cleanliness and comfort than many countries) this...

we ended our Sri Lanka trip in Negombo and decided that a hotel on the beach would be nice to spend our last 5 days relaxing, and we did but not without a few problems! The first room we got was on the 1st floor and the AC didnt work it was more like a fan moving the air, we... More

The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, but the rooms are fine, free wifi and it is only a few meters from the beach. Plus you can use the pool and restaurant and spa at the hotel next door.

If you love the ocean view this is wonderful but not for swimming as waves are huge. Recommend Trinco for that. The place is nice and clean and the pool next door I took advantage of several times. Just to get away and read and soak up the sun this is the place. The breakfast buffet was excellent and a... More
