Our room was ground floor with two chairs and a table outside which was nice as wi fi didn't reach inside the rooms. The pool and children's pool were both fantastic, small but open to the beach and ocean. All in all very relaxing after the hustle and bustle of Sri Lanka. We stayed one night for its location close... More

The price of the hotel is quite expensive in this area, and it's quite a big hotel, but the food served in this hotel is very disappointing, especially the breakfast and lunch. The rooms are not well equipped and quite old. If you don't need a swimming pool, you can find much better valued guesthouses or hotels across the road.

This hotel is in a lively location and v convenient for the airport. Whilst it is cheap it is also very tired and desperately in need of refurbishing, which i believe they are starting. It is bearable for a one night transit to airport but that's it. Staff are friendly and helpful

First up Negombo is really only a transit stop tourist spot for the International airport, 'the beach ' is technically a beach as it has sand (which is great as it allows all the rubbish to rest). The hotel is old and showing its age, room was clean and everything worked and staff very friendly enough . Close to the... More

Dropped into a quick lunch. The pasta was bad. The tuna was overcooked. The restaurant was not so clean. Bad experience overall. The website shows beautiful pictures of a very large pool but reality is quite a contrast. The pool is quite small.

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.
