We went to SL for the weekend only so didn't want to stay too far from the airport. Found this spot online and although a little rustic we decided to give it a go! The room we had was clean and very spacious! We had a beach view and a small kitchen where they placed a bed for our toddler.... More

Away from the main drag this lovely restaurant / guest house has great value food at a location you can't beat on the beach. Laze in the hammocks while you sip a cold beer before munching delicious local specialities like 'devilled mushrooms' or wade through a large plate of so-fresh crispy calamari ... Superb and a must visit - family... More

Whaw, what an excellent lunch/dinner option right on the beach (which is for the rest not very interesting). Also the prices were very honest! We ate the grilled crab and even our kids loved it and asked to come back to eat the delicious food here. Also the passion juice was excellent. Highly recommended!

The rooms are ok. Negombo is nothing special. The hotel is right on the beach. The beach is very, very dirty. There is rubbish everywhere. You can not swim in the sea due to extreme current. The hotel is perfect to travel from there or to stay 1 night before departure.
