We stayed here one night at the beginning of our Sri Lanka trip, and then again at the end of the trip. The hotel is good as a stopover hotel only. You wouldn't want to spend any more time here. We had problems with room configuration both times we were here, and it took an awful lot of time and... More

We stayed here during a stopover, paid for by the airline. The staff were lovely, very helpful and kind. The lunch and dinner buffets were very good, with plenty of choice. The drink proves were perfectly reasonable. The pool was perfect and situated right next to the beach. The bathrooms were a bit wet (no shower curtain) but the beds... More

Spent a day at the hotel during an extended layover, pleasantly surprised. Good clean rooms, helpful staff, good food and excellent beach location with a clean pool facing the ocean. Souvenir shops and restaurants close by, airport 30 mins away. Worth a stay.

We arrived early from our flight into Colombo, and were offered the use of a room and breakfast at the Catamaran Beach, before checking into our other hotel. Our room was at the far end closer to the swimming pool and beach. The room had a slight musty smell but this was due to the a/c. The shower was okay... More

Stayed for a couple of days here on a stop over to Europe. Wasn't expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised. While the resort is not new, the rooms are large and have airconditioning and the beachfront pool is great! Staff were very attentive. The beach out front is not quite pristine, but great for a walk and watching the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Catamaran hotel for two nights, and then a couple of weeks later, for three nights, and we both had a really great time! LSR hotels are always up to standards and this was definitely a satisfying stay. We had wifi, clean room and bathrooms, a comfy bed (and room) always made up to... More

Srilankan Air Lines Transit hotel, our flight got cancelled, airline paid for our stay. Dinner buffet was pretty good with singer singing local songs in front of your table. Located in a business area, where you can buy teas, little gifts local fruits... close to the beach with nice view! Good hotel!

Had an overnight layover here and was booked in by Sri Lankan airlines. Hotel is a but run down, but fine as a layover. I was bitten by bedbugs as the room was infested. I was moved to a second room in the early hours of the morning and promptly fell asleep as I was totally exhausted from travel. The... More
