Rooms are functional, quiet and well maintained. Washrooms are small. The pool is nice and the beach is spacious. Good service, but the waiting time for the room preparation was too much. All in all, recommended. Food is awesome by the way!

During our Srilanka vacation, the first Hotel we checked in on 18th August was Goldi Sands, Check in was done 5 minutes, the rooms were comfortable, however found that the linen were worn out, "time for replacement". The toilet had a unpleasant smell ( even though it was clean- probably the smell was returning from drain) called HK, they placed... More

Rooms are functional but old and shabby. Washrooms are small, old & worn out. Get a room with a beach front view if you don't mind the very loud late night music and guests. The staff is extremely helpful and the best feature of this hotel. The breakfast has a great variety of items. Good place in terms of location... More

My partner and I recently stayed at the Goldi Sands for our last night on our tour of Sri Lanka - the whole experience from start to finish was atrocious! After arriving at the hotel at check in time 12pm we were told our room wouldn't be ready for another 20 minutes. During this time we filled out our registration... More

This hotel is good for just a night or two as it is very budget and basic rooms. We had a room next to the pool. Room was clean and comfortable enough. Awful smell in the bathroom smelt like sewage. Not a very good night sleep as hotel next door had a party on until half 1 people shouting and... More

We had a b'day party on 6th September and everything was organised on time, the Regency room where we had the party was clean and the Aircons worked well, the Manager F&B has looked after us by showing professional customer service which reflected from other staff members too, the buffet was fantastic and authentic Sri Lankan dishes may be too...

We stayed at the Goldi Sands for 6 nights in total, 3 at the start and 3 at the end of our trip to Sri Lanka. By Sri Lankan standards a very good hotel, airconditioned, spacious, our first room was overlooking the service driveway, so not the best, but the second time we had a lovely room with balcony overlooking...

Good hotel surrounded by a good beach. Lot of activites to do around. Buffet was not up to the expected standards and lacks variety in it. (limited amount of food were there) also service staff were not up to the expected level. Even though the hotel was good and worth for the amount paying.

We stayed at goldi sands for one night at the start of our trip. When we arrived they had a room with two beds so we asked for one king bed, no beds available and the manager said 'your only staying for one night' so basically they didn't care. He gave us a fruit bowl for our trouble. The location... More
