Buffet food was very good. Staff very helpful. Room clean. The decor at the Goldi Sands has an understated elegance which enhances the leisure experience. The beach is beautiful. Good location; beach, nearby shops, restaurants etc. Good buffet b'fast and dinner.Beachside hotels could make more of an effort to keep beach clean.

My wife and I stayed for two nights in August 2014 on arrival in Sri Lanka. It is close to the airport with beach access. The room was comfortable but basic. The food was tasty but selection limited compared to what the higher grade hotels have on offer. The staff were friendly and helpful. The WiFi was a bit limited.

We stayed here for the last 2 nights of our holiday. The rooms are spacious and cool with great views of the ocean. The breakfast is a buffet and incredibly tasty. There are plentiful loungers around the pool and on the beach with plenty of shade if you need it. Be warned there are hundreds of crows which are very... More

This beach hotel provided a very comfortable night before our flight out at the end of the holiday. Lovely outlook (beach front), good WiFi, comfortable rooms. Didn't eat evening meal there (it was an English themed buffet!) although breakfast was good and this was the only hotel to question me about requirements of my gluten free diet. Check in was...

From our room we had a great view of the ocean. It is very close to the sea and there are plenty of beds on the beach. Towels are provided at the pool. The room looks a little bit dated and it was not cleaned very well upon arrival. The bed and the shower were good and there is also... More

Without any other option we booked this hotel to stay in Negombo. We were terribly tired after driving for more than 4 hours from Nuwara eliya, we reached this hotel around 5.45 PM. The whole area of the main reception looked gloomy with less lighting. We could see some construction work going on and so there was lots of dust... More

Nice location. Having breakfast just in front of the ocean and coconut trees is very pastoralic. Team is helpful. The rooms requires some improvements - sleep quality, noisy air-condition, we were missing towels, and overall decoration is probably 30 years old.

breakfasts were good if you wanted to Stoke up you could have a much food as you wanted with a huge variety including freshly cooked omelettes . The room was always clean with nice touches from the staff including elephants made from towels. Hotel arrange a taxi to airport for reasonable price. Recommended
