As long as you are not looking for luxury this is a very good hotel. Located right on the beach with a staff who all seemed to be willing, ready and able to do all they could to make our stay a pleasant one. The restaurant and pool are far better than the hotels 2star rating. There was no TV... More

If you are looking for a reasonably priced motel Sunflower beach is the place. Even though there are not many people staying there, you can walk or take a tuk-tuk to the bars and clubs in Negombo 10 minutes away. You can have a balance between relaxation and partying. Hotel Sunflower Beach was a fun filled holiday for our family.... More

Just needing somewhere for a few nights stopover after India and before heading to SE Asia I chose this hotel from the Internet. Aside from some confusion, they had changed the hotels name, as to where exactly it was, I think its good value for money. The rooms are spacious, with AC, TV, FREE Wifi, clean but perhaps a little... More

Stayed my last night in Sri Lanka here just to be close to the airport. For the very little I paid I was pleasantly surprised to get a large, comfortable, clean room with working aircon, fan, TV, sea view. Wouldnt really have wanted to stay any longer as the place was sadly a ghost town.

Excellent place to start and or end your stay in Sri Lanka We stayed two nights at the start of a three week holiday and we wished we had arranged to stay there at the end instead of further away from the airport in a less Sri Lankan hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and didn't make any... More

Definitely not a boutique hotel, the Sunflower is however the ideal place to stay at the beginning of your trip and at the end. It is only 20 minutes from the airport, it is located right on the beach - ideal for chilling next to the pool after a long-haul flight. The road outside the hotel is full of shops... More
