The hotel sits well but is looking a little tired. The big, big plus is that you will not meet friendlier or more welcoming staff anywhere else in the world. The grounds are well laid out, good sized pool and the rooms are spacious. During our visit the staff were extremely attentive.

Was overall a great experience, the rooms are quite spacious and comfortable. Our room opened up to the lagoon and is a sight in the dawn and when the sun is setting. The pool was very clean and quite big. The pool staff though is not very attentive and a bit slow or distracted. The meals were great, though again... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Club Palm Bay and once again it did not disappoint. Our comfortable room was clean and kept well stocked during our stay. The spacious grounds and pool are beautifully maintained. The large lagoon is very scenic and there is always a chance to see some wildlife so it's worth taking binoculars.... More

In November thru December 2014 we stayed at the Club Palm Bay and had a most enjoyable holiday. The hotel is all that could be expected for a beach side holiday in a country like Sri Lanka. Marawila is a totally uncommercialised location approx 50km [ two hours drive ] from Colombo. The location allows guests to spend time on... More

This hotel is quite spacious. Nice swimming pool, well maintained garden so that kids can play-around. Rooms are large and well maintained. Food is ok but do not expect a big variety. Dining area is large enough to cater a big number. From the entrance, reception and outer appearance is not very attractive and nothing special (we didn't get the... More
