I am more disappointed with Sri Lankan Airlines for having dumped me at this hotel after flight delays had caused me to missed my connecting flight to Japan. The hotel is a very old and outdated. The property to me is below most of the international standards we know. I would rate it a 1-star. Arriving at the hotel late... More

We stayed at Hotel Sunset Beach during the weekend. The hotel is located on a nice beach. The rooms are average and can be improved. The pool is good. The restaurants are good and offer a good variety of local and international food. The upstairs rooms are ideal for a fantastic view of the sunset

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in March 2015, having already stayed there for a few nights in 2012. I was given the same room on the ground floor, with patio doors opening on to the garden and the beach. The room was comfortable and cool, with good AC. There is a safe in the room too, which...

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
