Clean sheets, clean bathroom, tea and coffee :) we stayed here for three nights and explored Negombo. the beach was quite dirty,however the sunset around the pool was a great way to end the day.

Delightful place for a quick stopover with welcoming kind staff! Good value for money too and lovely setting. Excellent welcome and quick checkin with a very good show around our room. We had no towels but they brought them when we asked. The beach has some uncomfortable hawkers, and the sea didn't look overly Inviting, but we didn't want to... More

Visited this hotel for a swim and lunch while visiting Sri Lanka.The pool was great and the beach was very clean, though the sea was a bit rough on the day. Very helpful staff. The menu was a la carte but very reasonable before the 14% tax and 10% service that turned the total quite expensive. Enjoyed the stay.

Certainly it's a value for money hotel. Food very tasty and not expensive. Rooms are large and makes you very comfortable. Air conditioning and hot water was good. Staff are very friendly. I will go there again.

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
