Right on the beach in Negombo and away from the vendors this is a nice place to stay if your standards re a little flexible. Rooms are dated but the price is right and staff is friendly. Breakfast is provided and it is right on the beach as well.

Although rather run down the basic needs of a stop near to the airport are here. A good pool, air conditioning, tv , good beach and food and drink. The rooms are ok but the shower tiles need re grouting. If you are paying about £33 it a fair deal and on the same stretch as many hotels four times... More

Incredible location, beauiful colonial building. Good place to land in Sri Lanka and get used to the country. Don't except any luxury. Service of the hotel is not that good and it is very noisy due to the many local parties they organize next to the pool. The dinner at the hotel is quite expensive, but the food was good.... More

We went there on 2014 January. The photos mentioned on this site as "Professional Photos" are not photos of Sunset Beach Hotel Negombo, Sri Lanka. They so not have any resemblance to the hotel or the surrounding beach. Do not get deceived by the pictures. Photos uploaded by travellers are realistic. Over priced Food poor selection, quality and taste Service... More

1. They didn't pick us up at the airport because they apparantly did not read any of the emailadresses that are listed on their website. 2. They did not have a voucher on the booking which was made through booking.com. 3. We were given a room in the neighbour hotel which had no windows and had never been cleaned. Charming... More

The Hotel is located in one of the best beaches in Negombo. Over-all service is not bad, but needs a lot of improvement. Talking about food, very poor choice, but the quality is acceptable. The room we stayed was good and everything was in order. Going thru some of the previous reviews, a considerable improvement was noticed. Comparing to the... More
