This hotel is right on the beach but that's the only positive for Catamaran. The A/C doesn't work, the rooms are dirty and the staff hang around the swimming pool to drool over women in bikinis. It's a bit creepy.

Stayed at the Catamaran Beach hotel while trusting through Colombo. Least to say it is a very average hotel. Rooms are just ok, but not maintained. The toilet of our room was not even cleaned and we had to ask the hotel staff to clean it. Has direct access to the beach. Food was little on the expensive side and... More

The hotel is rather basic overall. The rooms look a bit old and are dark. It's handy for transit as close to the airport but that's it - I guess that's it main advantage. The food we had was OK overall.

I was booked by my tour operator - stating it is a 3 Star property and I had to stay only for 8 hours only (late night check-in and early morning check-out). It can not be rated to be any star hotel - stinking room - dirty toilets - no running hot water in night. We came to the restaurant... More

I have spent nearly 10hrs in this hotel during my transit in last July. Wifi is really good. Rooms are clean, good service. I had my Lunch & dinner here which is delicious. Seashore made my transit time little worthy.

We spent two nights at Catamaran Beach Resort as part of a group tour. Rooms were spacious yet basic. Showers needed a good clean and wiring of lamps unsafe. On our first night we were given a room that had a problem with its plumbing resulting in a bad smell throughout the room. When returning two weeks later our next... More

Toilet is clean and rooms OK for a beach side hotel with 2 twin and 1 single bed, Room 109. Nice sunsets though the water can be rough at high tide and not so suitable to swim. Food is OK with Sri Lankan and some Western Dishes. Will return again at the good rate that we are paying.
