We spend 4 nights and were sad to leave. The rooms are basics but very clean and big. 2 min walk from the beach. The food here is just amazing, we didn't eat anywhere else, authentic Italian food. The rooms are cleaned everyday and Luca and Dona are great hosts. We highly recommend this place.

The food was really good as long as you like Italian food (which I do).Excellent red wine too. Dona and Luca are very hospitable and helpful.They provide free wi-fi... More

I stayed in Trincomalee in September 2013 at the palm beach resort and it was an accommodational highlight of my entire Sri Lanka trip. The hotel is not only very luxurious and clean but the buffet is aaaamazing! Also the location right on the beautiful Trincomalee beach is wonderful.

Warm and friendly welcome. The owners have an exceptional idea of hospitality and know how to run the place. The food is great and rooms are comfortable. We stayed for 3 nights in February and unfortunately it was off season so no possibility to dive. Beside from that we had a great time.

Three weeks back from our holiday, I can still see why. The resort, a 2-minute-walk from the beautiful Uppuveli beach. It has about 8 bedrooms, each with its own veranda overlooking a tropical garden with exotic plants, flowers butterflies and birds, including the odd kingfisher or even more exotic birds. In the middle of the garden there is also a... More

My husband and I and our 8 year old son visited Palm Beach. We stayed for two nights and wished we had more time to stay longer. Dona and Luca are exceptional hosts. They are warm and friendly and so helpful. The food is AMAZING as is the coffee and the salads are to die for. We felt after 2... More

I spent two nights at this hotel. It has a nice garden and a good restaurant. Dona is a charming host and fine cook. However my stay was spoiled by an inflexible attitude and of abrupt manner of the other owner, Luca. Upon arrival, after a hard, hot day travelling, the first contact I with the hotel was "we have...

We totally agree with all the other enthusiastic reviews for this hotel. The hosts Dona and and Luca are very friendly and helpful. They had been really helpful and flexible when trying to book from the UK and we felt like friends by the time we got there. Dona runs a fantastic kitchen and the food is authentic Italian and...

Donna and Luca are great hosts and the Italian food in their restaurant is to die for. They always give guests first preference for dining so if you are not staying there it is very difficult to get in. The rooms are spacious with mossie nets and outside the room you have a table and chairs with a fan above... More
