We stayed in this hotel two weeks and liked it a lot! First we were a bit spectical because we had red bad comments about this hotel, but when we came to hotel, we were really positively surprised! Room was clean and a cleaning lady did her job well everyday. Location of the hotel was amazing, exactly near the beach!... More

Extremely basic hotel. Big gaps under doors allowing flies and mosquitoes in. Doors and windows by communal balcony area didn’t feel that secure either. You get what you pay for and this was only going to be for an overnight stop before starting a few days travelling north….but I thought it was very overpriced for what it was. Due to... More

This hotel is OK if all you want is a bed for the night- there is no proper reception area and no other facilities apart from a bed, shower, WC and that's it. You can use the hotel next door for the swimming pool and breakfast though. I cant comment on service provided, as its just a base really. I... More

We chose Don's for one night in order to be close to the airport for an early morning flight the next day. But it came close to ruining our holiday. Having had some amazing experiences in a beautiful island our party of 8 ended up having a sleepless night and taking home hundreds of mosquito bites as souvenirs! Overall impression... More

I read the reviews after I booked a quick recuperation from sickness weekend so I was a bit nervous what to find. With all hotels it partly depends on what you expect... for the price (Negombo - and indeed Sri Lanka is getting more and more expensive for Asian countries with less guaranteed cleanliness and comfort than many countries) this...
