I stayed here for one night with my friends and the first impression was little bad. Our check-in time was at 13:00 and we were asked to wait until 14:00 and even at 14:00 the receptionist gave us the key to one room only and asked us to wait little while longer as the room was not ready. This was... More

Greetings from CORAL SANDS Dear Guest, Your review was read with much concern. As you rightly state, this was a long weekend with full occupancy. Our check-in time is 1 pm & the check-out time is 12 noon. Most guests graciously comply with this check out time. All guests need to be aware that any delay on their part will... More

I've been to Sri Lanka twice and stayed at many places but Coral Sands has been my favourite. Two pools with an attentive and helpful lifeguard, nice ocean swimming area right outside on the beach, and beautiful sunsets every night. We even had someone in our group with a dietary requirement and the management bought the ingredients to cook them... More

Our party of 4 people stayed for 5 nights from March 28th this year before moving on too the Maldives. We stayed in a very clean Deluxe room, overlooking the fabulous beach!
