I strongly feel that our enjoyable stay at Club Palm Bay (CPB) is not complete if I do not applaud the top-class service, food and facilities offered during my nine-day stay with 125 other colleagues from USA, Italy, Spain, Malta, Mexico, Costa Rica, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. A big thank you goes to all CPB staff members especially to... More

Stayed for 2 weeks on all inclusive, very nice,clean and comfortable accommodation. The service was at a very high standard by all staff from the start of the holiday till the day I left, also there was no lack of choice in the food provided in the restaurant and enjoyed all my meals even though I'm not a curry lover....

The day outing organized was superb!!! The support provided by helping us to create a jungle atmosphere was outstanding. The service levels were great and staff went out of their way to accommodate our requests and make us feel special.

Good accommodation, food and friendly staff. Best to stay on site as beach is small and the sea whilst we were staying was too rough for the fishermen to go out let alone swim. Be prepared for long journeys to see any sites 4 hours to Kandy, 2 hours to the Elephant Orphanage.

Stayed here for 2 weeks with friends. Off season so the hotel occupancy was minimal. It was on an all inclusive basis. I must point out that I have been on many all inclusive holidays and am fully aware that certain items one has to pay for such as imported spirits. However at Palm Bay you will be required to...

We stayed for two weeks at the beginning of May. During the time we were there the hotel had quiet periods as well as busy times. During the quiet times, evening meals were taken in the a la carte restaurant and on one evening a special and excellent meal was arranged for us with the meal being prepared by the... More

I have just spent 10 excellent nights on an “all inclusive” basis at the Club Palm Bay Hotel; this being my second visit. The hotel is an hours car journey from Colombo airport and you are welcomed with nice cold flannel to freshen up and a colourful delicious cold cocktail, also the booking process is very quick and efficient.

Had a wonderful holiday here but not what expected. This is definitely not a four star hotel. The food was on the most part very good but the a la carte rrestaurant was closed for the duration of our stay which was disappointing. The hotel was dirty and in need of a good refurb, the same goes for the pool,... More
