Just a thought to share with you guys after reading all the comments... It's crazy how you guys say that you went and saw the place, agreed with the tariffs and stayed there for a week or so and then say the place is horrible, dirty, unclean etc... You could have checked out of the hotel the very next day... More

Nice hotel. We slept in one of the bungalows at the other side of the Beach Hotel. Very nice pool with friendly and helpfull staff. Nice breakfast with choice of local or continental breakfast. Just all you need for a beach holiday.

Great location and excellent service. Any problem we had the staff would immediately come. This place will answer all your needs for a good price. Would advice to ask for a room overlooking the beach- gotta love that view in the morning!

Signs and leaflets tells about a communication centre, rooftop saunas, a bar, a restaurant etcetera, but there are simply very simple rooms with a very noisy air condition. Breakfast has to be ordered and specified the a day before and it is not really a tasty one. They didn't clean our rooms or gave us towels or toilette paper if... More

We went to this hotel last week. A group of us wanted to go for lunch at the hotel. Although the hired help said they could serve lunch, the manager took one look at us and said that lunch will take at least three hours as they have to take the food out of the freezer! What really annoyed me... More

Beachfront building only open to us. The title best describes our experience. We did however stay there 'out of season' and it was chosen by our tour company, We did not realise there was any pool, there was no restaurant available and our breakfast seemed to be carried in from somewhere else and had to be ordered in advance. There... More

Arrived here with lots of trepidation after reading some of the reviews on Tripadvisor on the way (yes, I should be checking BEFORE :-) ). However we (two families with young kids) found the place clean and tidy. Above all, service and food were excellent. Ibrahim was not just a waiter, but a fantastic host who was more than just...

Shabeer took great care of us on our stay in Arugam Bay. The pool is fantastic and very clean. We were travelling as a couple but our friends also were travelling with us. they had a 9 year old girl who was very happy with the swimming pool so if you have kids the pool is a great amenity!

We slept 2 night there. Good location but at the end they charged us more than they should! Very bad service and not welcoming staff. Avoid this place! Also the pool is very dirty and not useful at all

I was puzzeled by the mixed reviews. But it appeared there are TWO Tristar hotels; the Old and the New one. Same general manager. Our family stayed in the New one, and our guide in the Old one. The New Tristar is clean, and the local manager Shabeer and his staf are doiing an excellent job; very friendly and helpful.... More
