Dickman is a lovely boutique resort with excellent service. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The whole place is a labour of love...gorgeous colors throughout and lots of small details. Cool lounge tunes playing in the room, salt water pool, resident tortoises, beautiful garden and delish breakfast. Don't miss the yummy spicy Sri Lankan omelette ! :) Location wise...it's... More

Been before and my previous comments still hold true. Some noticeable changes since my last visit include the new Mango Suite, the new bar toilets, excellent apart from a lack of ventilation & the heat and the new car park, just need to get the drivers to learn how to reverse into it! To quote an aged Austrian actor, "I'll... More

A very relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast was excellent along with the staff, facilities and service. A lovely welcome drink upon arrival at 4am. The pool was a delight to use whilst enjoying the sun. Would certainly return and recommend.

The package included 4 nights at the Dickman and two nights and three days with driver visiting Kandy and Nuwar... More

This LGBT friendly hotel is literally hidden in Negombo just a 5 minute walk from the beach, the front door is like the opening of a secret room down a narrow side street. There was no issue at all with us being a heterosexual couple, and the hotel accommodates anyone. Service was amazing, rooms were beautiful, large and the most... More

WOW is probably the best word to describe this little gem. Located on a backstreet a stone's throw away from the beach (not that you'll want to go there anyway) lies this private sanctuary. As they slide the security gate back to let you into the property you immediately feel you've come to the right place. Warm welcome, fantastic rooms,... More

Normally when I write these reviews I do it so others know about good and bad places I visited, on this occasion I am torn. I don't want others to know just how fantastic this place is, it only has 9 rooms. This place has to be ranked up there with some of the best places I have stayed anywhere... More
