Stayed 3 nights In Catamaran. Good location on beach. Small pool with sunbeds. They have a good located restaurant, but sadly no people use it. Breacfast basic, terrible coffe. Rooms big, but bathrooms needs a good scrub. Negombo beach , where we stayed, is very quiet. There is no ATM around the hotel, 1 km to the nearest.

We booked this hotel for our arrival and preparation to start our 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. Our flight arrived at 04:35 so needed an early check-in arranged. We arranged a car to pick us up at the airport though the Catamaran Hotel website (pre-paid). First of all, the car never arrived. We had the cell phone number of the... More

There is no provision in our website to book a car. This could be through a private company. Many guests arriving early morning book a room for the previous night so... More

We stayed at the Catamaran Beach Hotel for one night mainly as it's close to Colombo airport (we were flying out the next day). The Hotel is in a good location. There are restaurants and souvenir shops close by. The rooms are roomy. The balcony is in fact the walk way to all the rooms, so there's no privacy and... More

The Catamaran Beach Hotel is located right on the beach and as a place to stay on our first night I couldn't think of many places better.
