A nice beach hotel which is quite near to the Bandaranaike International Airport and if you are either in transit through Sri Lanka with more than half a day to spend or arrived at odd hours, this hotel is a good option to stay put. Even otherwise you can spend a couple of days in this quite hotel to just... More

Clean spacious rooms, wi-fi, pool & bar and beach area. Food was good but some what limited in variety - however, in fairness to the hotel we had visited off-season. The hotel is a brief walk from local ATMs/shops/bars & restaurants. The staff were always friendly & helpful. Ideal hotel for brief stay overs, I don't think I could stand... More

We stayed here on our transit in Colombo and the room was booked by our airline. The room was really nice and colourful and the bathroom was spacious with a good shower. We really liked the setting of the hotel: green and spacious. The swimmingpool is pretty and faces the beach, but you will have to deal with some beach... More

Room was huge with 3 beds for a 'double private room' - bit odd...! Air con was ok, decent shower with good... More

We spent a couple of nights here as the final part of our holiday as the hotel is close to airport. Rooms were spacious but were rather grubby. The hotel was nearly empty. They supplied tea and coffee facilities but no milk. We asked 3 times for milk and was totally ignored. We were amazed at how many "managers" there... More

We stayed in the Catamaran Beach Hotel for a couple of hours during transit. This was booked by the airlines. The rooms were spacious but not very well maintained. The hotel must have surely seen better days. The plus points - 20 min drive to the airport and is on the beach. Overall a okay hotel to stay if you... More
