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

Dear guest, Thank You for taking your valuable time to review us on Trip Advisor. As we have a little information we are unable to investigate on the transport. 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

We stayed as family with two children aged 2 & 5 years old for one week. The staff was so friendly and playful with our children from the start and our girls really enjoyed their stay. This was their favourite hotel during our stay (we stayed at three hotels in total). We were a bit unlucky with our rooms 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. After your arrival we were greeted with a cold drink and told we could wait by the pool until our room was ready. After checking in we relaxed on sun loungers looking out... More

Nothing special. Slow and redundant check-in service and staff. Rooms okay but view to ocean a bit of a stretch on the imagination. Beds compfy, bathrooms good. Pool not as good as on the pictures (the usual), no staff in the bar, overall a bit lost.

We booked this hotel last minute and only stayed here last night, but it was a really nice stay. The hotel was very clean with large room and relatively nice bathroom. The only surprise was that the breakfast was not included in the price for the hotel and we were not aware of it.
