I travelled to this hotel a while ago, but whilst I stayed there it was fantastic. The staff were fantastic and the food was pretty good too. The Tamil Tigers did have a little battle with the army and airforce but there was nothing to worry about.

We visited Club Hotel Dolphin for the second time and this visit was even better than the first. We qualified for the repeaters programme, which gave us a free meal at the Waves restaurant, Mango Village, trip to Negombo, glass of wine with your meal at the Buffet every evening and a free massage. Checking in was very quick and... More

We stayed here for a week in April 2015. Everything about this hotel was great. The staff are incredibly friendly. The rooms are lovely and cleaned to a very high standard. The food was excellent. We would not hesitate in booking another holiday to this hotel. Hopefully very soon!
