On arrival at Goldi Sands after a 14hr flight, there was a five hour delay booking in to the room. Room was very basic, there was traffic and machinary noise heard in the room. The hotel food was really good and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The pool area had plenty of sunbeds. Samantha (a man) will do... More

Also, rooms were decent and had good room service too. The view from the room was fantastic and the garden os neat and clean. Overall, for a hotel... More

One has to put is hotel into its local context. It is certainly one of the better places to stay when compared to the back pack travelling on a shoestring type places to be found in Negombo. For £50 a night you get an ocean view room with good air conditioning and a ceiling fan if required. It is all... More

Had a suite for one night . The hotel is in a good location on the near sea shore. Helping staff and rich breakfast. Also near to the local shopping and dining center . Standard rooms are fair enough.

They always have a genuine smile on their faces and they are all a credit to the Hotel. The standards at the Hotel are very high in every department and in our opinion... More

visited the hotel one weekend for lunch. The lunch buffet was way too basic for a 3 star hotel. offered very few options in almost all areas; only two options rice/noodles, no salads just sliced and diced vegetables, few dishes and only fruits for desert. It was not only a poor menu but also tasteless. not worth the money! would... More

We want to start by saying that this is a great hotel but they just get some things wrong. The main thing is the use of over booking to maintain their accommodation figures. We were a victim of this like many people before us (Hence the title!! as this is one of the rooms you might get if they have... More
