Its a lovely hotel located closer distance to the Bandaranayake Airport. Lovely rooms with good view. Food was ok, the staff was good. But the rooms can be improved. It is a good place if your planning a budget trip. Surrounding town is very small and you can go and have your breakfast and lunch in local restaurants. They are... More

We have stayed in Negombo many times over the years and wanted to be on the beach for our last day. We only had 1 full night but booked Sunset Beach for 2 nights (as we had a late night flight) and paid £95 The reception looks welcoming and the reception staff are well presented,professional and friendly. We were shown... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The lobby was nice and clean and employees friendly. Our room was more than we expected, based on the reviews here. Though they should take a second look at the bathroom, which was a bit dirty. Swimming pool got cleaned up every morning and so very clean, yet no one used it. Breakfast was... More

We booked this hotel because we wanted something more luxury (ie. swimming pool) than our average stay after three weeks in Sri Lanka. In the end, this hotel was the most expensive, but the least satisfying of our stay. The hotel is shabby; it seems a long gone glory. It has no charm at all. Prices are way too high.... More

Stayed here for one night on my birthday. The restaurant is great and has a beautiful view. We enjoyed the pool and had long walks on the beach. The price we paid was high but other than that we had a relaxing time in this beautiful place.

I visited in September/October 2012. The 5 of us could all sleep in one family room and had air conditioning. We had a god experience and made use of the pool. We were close to the airport, as we were flying out the next day.

Stayed here purely for the beach view - hotel did not have too many guests. We looked at a few rooms before picking one that had a great view. Hotel feels old-ish, but comfortable enough. Staff were nice and respectful. The beds were comfortable and clean. Bathroom is quite small.

I went there with my office friends for party & we stay over there one night. Rooms little old & furniture too old, but the rooms have a nice view of Negombo beach,dinner is average & breakfast not worth for the price. This place good for arranging the office party. But not worth for the price to stay in full... More
