Pros: This hotel located beachfront, and the beach was so clean and got the best sunset view. Room was nice and it looks minimal. Get the Top floor room. Cons: Hope they had F/B basis. (but in the Negombo there are tons of options have to dine in) There are no room services

We travelled with 8 other American photographers for a privately arranged tour of Sri Lanka. The members of the team were arriving at different times from various states. Some of us stayed when we arrived for 1-2 nights and some last night before departing after the tour due to the close proximity to the airport. The price was extremely reasonable and the breakfast was acceptable. The staff was courteous and helpful. The Manager Mr Vaz took care of every request we had and help arrange transport to the airport for our members. If you are looking for an exotic vacation this is not the place. You get the value for the money here. The prices were unbelievably reasonable.

We were looking for a budget deal, we wished we’d paid a little extra to stay somewhere else. Firstly the hotel is nothing like the pictures. The place is really tired. The pool looks dirty. The entire place is in need of a doing up! We asked for a small fridge and they charged us per day, we didn’t know that until we checked out. We ate in the restaurant, the food was awful, really dry and over cooked. Finally the feral dogs wandering around, in the restaurant, by the pool... and nobody was bothered. The place felt prison like. We escaped to the beach, to find it was really polluted. That was really disappointing. I don’t normally complain, but I strongly suggest you pay a little more and stay somewhere much nicer! Negombo has much more to offer.

This was a perfect place for your first night in Colombo/Negombo. It is close to the airport (about 20 minutes) and is located right on the beach. The hotel has a cosy atmosphere and a laid back feeling. The rooms are fine, the breakfast is nice and the service is great! Furthermore, it is close to restaurants for dinner, ATM etc.

Stayed overnight before we head for Dambulla. It was raining, so couldnt explore the area around. But the hotel was decent, clean rooms, restaurant facing the sea. A nice lounge with a big screen and bean bags, good to chill for games. There is no room service, and restaurant closes by 10pm. There was issue in the bathroom, no hot water in the shower, water comes out of the cubicle, from the floor as there is no door and nothing to stop the water and no small amenities like soap or shampoo, so be prepared before your visit. The shops in the locality close by 10.30pm. The staff is friendly.
