As a group of 6 people we stayed at Palm Beach Hotel for a few nights at a time in between visits to the country during 27 March - 7 April 2014 We were using 4 ground level rooms and they issued us the same rooms after two break away sessions. They also kept our luggage in storage at no... More

Nice swimming pool, well maintained grounds. great breakfast with choice of Sri Lankan/ European hot foods, omelettes/ eggs cooked to order. Evening food not so good, cold or lukewarm, but bar snacks good. Wonderful staff and housekeeping. Always welcoming and smiling .Generally peaceful and quiet. Near beach, about 5 minutes walk away, you need to cross railway line to get... More

When my husband and I first arrived, we were not happy with the room that was given to us. After we expressed this to the staff, they were able to quickly provide a different room that was to our liking! We stayed for about 4 days before going on to the north of the Island, where we actually stayed at... More

Stayed here in February for one night before flying home. The best thing about the hotel was the swimming pool which seemed clean and well kept. The bedroom seemed good on the surface but then we discovered the floor was filthy and towels smelly. The aircon worked fine but the room smelt of cigarettes and there was no fan so... More

We stayed here after prebooking this via our travel agent from Australia. From the start everything was wrong. They must have lost our booking so kept us waiting for over an hour before we got our room. That was the best bit. All manner of things were broken in the room and despite reports, the staff did nothing to try... More

Me and my wife were there for one night in this hotel and it was a terrible experience. The room was full of mosquitos and also the restaurant. Breakfast was good. Hotel is in a good location (but no beach). I am sorry that I cannot recommend this place to anyone.

The hotel is not altogether bad. But, one must have no illusion about spending time in the hotel's beach. The beach is half a kilometer from the hotel, with several buildings and twin railway lines in between. Front of the hotel looks cramped with no open ground. Front building is modern. But rooms are housed in a colonial style low... More

My girlfriend and I were booked to stay 3 nights but we extended it to 6 nights as we found the stay pleasant. When we arrived on our first day we were not happy with the room as we were given twin beds when we had requested a double bed. The staff were able to offer us another room that... More

My wife, 2 kids and I just spent 6 days in December at this hotel. Although it is lacking in a bit of TLC, it was a comfortable and relaxing stay. I knew I had not paid for a 5 star experience, so my expectations were not high. However, I was plesantly surprised. The rooms were always fantastically cleaned each... More

To start with, this is a good property with very poor management. We saw the negative comments about this hotel on tripadvisor but decided to give it a shot.. But unfortunately the comments about this hotel is true. Pros - The breakfast was good compared to the price you pay, the location and the hotel is big so you have... More
