This hotel was one of the places we stayed longer than we had planned. After one night we got offered a different room, that was upstairs in the building closer to the beach - this room just blow us away. Windows in every direction, a huge balcony with the BEST sunset-view, a comfortable bed and nice bathroom with hot water.... More

We came across this hotel by chance on Tripadvisor. It is a brand new hotel by the ocean with a few standard rooms and deluxe rooms. The deluxe rooms are great and very clean. The aircon worked fine and most of all it was very peaceful. One of the nicest weekends we had after a long time. We even saw... More

Great pool, very nice location. Perfect place to stay with young children. If possible and you have the budget book the chalet. The food and service at the restaurant needs improvement. With a tuktuk you can easily go to other restaurants and places.

Pool is clean and nice. Place is clean staff friendly Owner and some staff speak very good English. Interesting watching the fishermen come in with their night catch in the morning while having coffee and breakfast. Restaurant is ok. There are better up the beach. They have a tuktuk so you can get other places. It is out of the... More

The hotel as it self is okay with a big good pool. The better rooms are spacious and spotless. The service was okay, the breakfast poor. For what was offered the total price was overpriced. Only go there if you want an average to good quality hotel with seaview and full service which you don't want to leave for your... More

I don't understand why there is such a high rating for this hotel. Are previous reviewers sure they stayed in Marawila?? We stayed at this hotel for three nights - the service was terrible, the food was inedible, and the beach was a fishing beach - gross. The photos and description of the hotel also showed a pool - which... More

Thank you for reviewing our Motel and we sincerely apologies for inconvenience caused during your stay with us. I have of course organized even a special welcoming fruit basket and some flowers in to your room as the lady has mentioned it was a surprise for her boyfriend and we do not provide this complementary service normally, as we run...

Booked this for 2 nights after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. There are 2 good double rooms with sea views and then 4 others that are not as good. I was in one of these, room 3 and I could smell the kitchen and hear everything so my stay wasn't that good. My Mum stayed in a delux room that... More

we were happy to arrive in Room #1 - which is the best and even stayed one day longer than planned. It is a good place to relax - absolutely no night life, but super-friendly staff, clean nice rooms and good atmosphere around. The food was quite enjoyable and extra-wishes (e.g. Sri Lanka breakfast instead of continental breakfast) were granted.... More

Stayed our very first night at the Sunset Beach Motel. We arrived early straight from the airport and were allowed to check-in early with no problems. The motel was a bit tough for our tuk tuk driver to find as it is a ways north of Negombo. The hotel room was large and stylishly decorated. The room had a/c and... More

We stay at few hotels when we were traveling. But Sunset Beach Motel was the best. We had booked this hotel first for one week and came back after traveling for last two days before our flights. This place far from touristic area but the same time its easy to get to Airport, Kandy, Colombo, Negombo, Galle etc. Taxi, tuc-tuc... More
