Beautiful rooms, excellent staff, great food, awesome spa treatments, safe, & impeccably clean. We spent 2 nights here in April 2014, I wish we'd stayed longer. We will definitely return. The only downside was that sometimes bar service was slow for mixed drinks.

We stayed here for two nights before going on a tour with two children. It was great being so close to the airport as we were on the beach that afternoon. Our rooms were interconnecting and very spacious, very clean and the beds were lovely. The buffet food was fine but perhaps could have done with a little more choice... More

We stayed here on the last night of our Sri Lankan stay, before flying to the Maldives. We were only in the hotel for about 16 hours, but it didn't make a great impression. I will start by saying that the location, right on the beach in Negombo, is lovely. When we arrived after a long car journey, the reception... More

We stayed here for one night after our flight and was the first of our seven hotels. I had read in previous reviews a mixed bag stating some of the rooms are poor,and if you go of to the left side of the hotel you will find these rooms. My first impression was that it was poorly maintained,dirty,and mouldy. But... More

We stayed here for one night at as it was so close to the Colombo Airport. Fantastic location right on the beach in Negombo, which is a lovely alternative to Colombo.

My wife & I have just returned from a 13 day holiday in Sri Lanka, during which we stayed at four hotels. The Jetwing Sea in Negombo was our first hotel, where we stayed for two nights. Kuoni had recommended the Jetwing Sea as our first hotel as it was a relatively short journey after our flight. Our room was... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a tour of Sri Lanka, we were due to returner the end of the tour but changed hotels - couldn't face a second stay! Room was fine, we were in the new block, the corridors resembled prison but I could live with that. Breakfast - sweaty fly infested buffet with some dubious mouldy... More

March 2014 booked through kuoni. Right on beach. Restaurant open to beach complete with guards scaring off birds whilst you eat. Fabulous service throughout our stay. All the staff without exception couldnt do enough for us and always smiling. Stayed in deluxe room overlooking beach which had a wonderful view of the ocean and boats. Looked like paradise.

Used this hotel twice flying in and out of Colombo, as it is not far from the Airport. Agree with others that the Buffet Restaurant offered a good choice of food, but the rooms in the South Block need urgent updating.. The Bathrooms are very small, the extractor fan wasn't working, and we had to be moved to another room... More
