Having just returned from our 15th holiday at Club Palm Bay yes we are biased but only because in our many travels we have never found a hotel that we feel compelled to return to so often. Starting with the spacious bedrooms either lagoon or garden facing where you can sit and watch sunsets or sunrises . Opening the curtains... More

Purchased this holiday under the illusion it was a 4 star and later found it was a 2 star. On arrival the hotel had no road but a sand track to the main gate . Reception desk was so dark you just felt you entered the reception of a hospital . Taken to the room which was clean and tidy... More

We had a very relaxing two week stay here, the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. The hotel was just what we were looking for, quiet and relaxing. The food is good but not excellent. We had a couple of tours, one to Kandy and one to the south. You can use the hotel reps eg Saga or... More

Have just returned from a SAGA 9 day holiday advertised as being all-inclusive in the Club Palm Bay Hotel in Sri Lanka which was reasonably priced and good value, and well worth the 2 x 10 hour flights with Sri Lankan Airlines. We had been before, with SAGA, 8 years ago so did not need to take the inclusive excursions... More

It’s a good Hotel, spreader in a large property, having enormous swimming pool, surrounded amongst beautiful nature, very next to sea coast, Amazing location. It’s away by 30km approximately from Colombo Airport. Rooms are good, service is average. Vegetarian food is hopeless, thus vegetarian eaters have to remember that it isn't an appropriate place for them to stay for long.... More

Worst ever experience in customer service. Had to carry my own luggage using a hotel trolley. Restaurant staff not knowing the basic service. When asked what has happened to hotel service, they merely tell that they have staff issues. Will not recommend to any one.pls avoid this hotel.

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Club Palm Bay so feel that perhaps we can give a more rounded overall view of Club Palm Bay rather then that of MPM_111 who was only there for 1 day. The hotel was lovely extremely clean and well staffed,in fact it was the staff that really made Club Palm... More

My husband and I stayed at Club Palm Bay for 12 nights at the start of August - our first holiday without children for 20 years and our first trip to Sri Lanka. We were generally very impressed with the hotel - after a long flight it was good to only have a short transfer from the airport. Check-in was... More

having read all the reviews, which are mixed, I think I have an understanding of why there is such a polarised view. We all know that it takes a lot of time and pondering to book and confirm the perfect holiday.so its critical that our expectations of paradise are delivered. so, for clarity: a) if you have never experienced white...
