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.

My girlfriend and I stayed here on the last night of our trip as it's a lot closer to the airport than Colombo. The location is great as it's right on the beach and the road it is on has lots of restaurants to choose from within walking distance. We did not have a reservation and were able to check-in...

Stayed at this hotel for 1 night on the 19th of February, 2015 as we reached Colombo late night. The hotel is a 20 minutes drive from Colombo International airport. We chose a Deluxe Double/Twin Room with Breakfast included for 82 USD, which I felt is reasonable. Although the hotel is relatively old, the rooms in this hotel are decent... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights 15th - 18th Feb 2015. The reception staff, porters and room maids were all very friendly. Some of the waiting staff were surly and unfriendly, they were short staffed on the 17th and this put one staff member in a particularly bad mood. They didn't seem happy when we wanted to order...

We only stayed here for one night before flying home again. Our reservation on booking.com didn't go through for some reason so although we had booked the night for £31, the best price they would give us at 11pm was $90, room only which for that price without breakfast was too expensive. They were very pleasant though. The room wasn't... More
