“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

We stayed here on our final night of a 2 week holiday to Sri Lanka and my only negative point is that we only spent one night in Jetwing Blue.

We were supposed to stay in Jetwing Beach but something happened just before we arrived so we were put up in Jetwing Blue instead (the hotels are next door and joined to each other). Even though we were a late arrival, they had a room ready for us in 15 minutes.

Our room was massive, the bed was so comfy and our room looked out onto the beach. We had a bath which was huge for 2 people and a nice rain shower. The rooms are open plan and really modern.

The buffet food food was some of the nicest I've ever eaten and the 'food stations' were a particular highlight.

The staff all seemed nice although due its size, it lacked the personal feel which some of our other hotels offered.

I would 100% stay here again

I could hardly have found a better place for my first night in Sri Lanka. Comfortable, well-located, and luxurious, Jetwing Blue provided the ideal landing spot for someone who had traveled for more than twenty-four hours.

Stayed here on october 2013. Very good hospitality and great food. I stayed in the third floor room. Room faced directly to pool and indian ocean. Sadly view of the ocean is blocked by coconut trees. Otherwise it is a great place.

After lot of travel over the last 7-8 years, I just could not find a negative point about the Jetwing Blue Resort..... Fantastic service, clean and spacious rooms, well spread breakfast, lunch, dinner and a beautiful swimming pool. The view from the rooms is amazing.

Stayed at the Blue and Beach during a months business attachment in Negombo. The Blue is a lovely spacious hotel with well sized rooms and some terrific views of the beach and ocean. First room was a Deluxe on the ground floor overlooking the garden, great size, well serviced and a patio leading to the grass and then beach. Next room was a Super Deluxe on the second floor which had unit erupted views over the Ocean and was even larger although on the same design. Everything worked in the rooms, A/C took the temperature down to 18c and the cleaning was spot on every day. Staff in the hotel are friendly, cheerful and personal which is a change from the plastic smiles we sometimes get in Europe. Especial praise goes to Mekuna our account manager who made our trip special by dealing with any issue that occurred in an efficient and pleasant manner, outstanding service. All staff at the hotel were attentive and caring from the porters at the front door through to laundry staff I could not have asked for better. Meals were varied and of a good quality especially the multi choice breakfast. The beach cafe at Centre Point is also worth a trip for lunch or dinner where it serves the most wonderful prawn dishes. When I return I shall to be accommodated at the Jetwing Blue.

Room Tip: Super Deluxe are a bit more expensive but they are much larger.

Booked this hotel through agoda and had a suite. The view was lovely over the beach and the sea. However the room did smell of sewerage a lot and we had to get staff to deal with it on a number of occasions. Food is pretty poor. It really is just a 'package holiday' hotel and not what I generally got for! There are lots of weddings and the one on the beach the night before we left went onto 11pm, very loud music. We had to be up at 4am to leave for airport the next morning. Booked a car through the hotel and it turned up really late, we just made check in at the airport and no more!!

I am really not sure I would go back to Negombo but defo not back to this hotel!!

I travelled to Sri Lanka with my Dad and Brother , it was our first time in this country. Everybody in the hotel was exceptionally friendly and couldn't do enough for you, I couldn't fault the customer service in any part of the hotel. The beach and pool areas where clean and never a problem to get as sunbed. The only fault is I could have done with some entertainment in the evenings. We went on a few trips which where at least 3 hours each way, but worth while. We used the spa which was also good. Free WiFi in all parts of the hotel which was a bonus. We ate in the restaurant every day and all food was cooked and presented to a very high standard, it also made a change to be offered buffet and set menu choices as a full board option. The rooms could have been smarter and modernised but this wasn't a real problem because everything else made up for this.

Room Tip: all of the rooms have the street to the front and beach view to the back, but no noise once in your...
