I only stayed a night from the airport. This was my least favourite hotel on my trip. I wasn't expecting much but even the cold hand towels on arrival smelt bad, and the local fruit juice wasn't something I liked. Wifi didn't work on my iPhone, hate when that happens. The service was a little sloppy, the only chap I... More

We stayed here on our last night in Sri Lanka as part of our honeymoon before leaving for the Maldives the following day. As we had to be up at 3:30 am we were hoping for a few hours of decent sleep before leaving very early for our flight. Unfortunately we had one of the worst nights sleep of our... More

I am just back from Sri Lanka where I stayed at the Jetwing Sea Hotel for 8 nights, the hotel has 3 types of rooms - standard which I stayed in, it was very comfortable and very clean, house keeping for the room was excellent and they even came back in the evening to turn down the bed, change towels...

Another pleasant hotel with excellent rooms. We overlooked the beach with a spacious balcony. The food was good and the service was friendly and efficient. Less than 30 minutes from the airport, made it an ideal stopping off place for an early flight.

We really enjoyed our stay at Jetwing Sea. The food was good and the beach was beautiful. The rooms too were quite luxurious. The only downside was that when we were down by the pool 3 vendors were constantly around bothering us trying to make a sale. The security guards too did not seem to do anything about it. And...

We chose this hotel as a station before our departure from Sri Lanka. As we were coming from the other side of the island, and the road conditions require a six-hour drive to cover 270 Km (not to mention the train that, for the same distance, needs a 7,30-hour ride), we chose to arrive the night before even if our...

Jetwing Sea is ok, has nice swimming pools,ok rooms (but in need of a refurb and ac sorting!) and food is passable. Only 20mins to Colombo airport so served as a stop over before onward travel to the Maldives. Rooms near main bar noisy due to loud singer provided as entertainment. Cocktails were nice and reasonably priced. We have previously... More

We stayed here just to get our bearings after a night flight. The rooms we had were very spacious with gorgeous bathrooms. Staff were helpful and friendly. Food was lovely. I wouldn't have wanted to stay more than a night as there didn't seem to be much going on in the immediate area, but for what we wanted it for,... More

This was the last hotel on our tour of Sri Lanka booked because of its close proximity to the airport.
