Stayed with my family and in-laws on the way to Galle. Enjoyed the dinner and breakfast which had a range of tasty dishes. The two pools were a hit with our young boys (4 and 2). Staff was very polite and helpful. Good access to the beach where we spent quite some time during the evening and morning. Overall good... More

Restaurant ambience is poor. Guest relations officer was amazing though! The calipso band that played during dinner buffet was also amazing! Rooftop beach view was really nice. Overall stay was...

We got a driver to negombo so we didn't have far to get to the airport. That cost $90usd. Our driver virtually spoke no English at all. The air conditioning broke and... More

It is what it is. We were booked for 2 nights stayed for 1. The staff was friendly. Check in was delayed and even though we booked a more expensive room with a double bed we got 2 singles pushed together. Coral Sands Hotel is the perfect place if you want to drink a lion beer on a black leather... More

We stayed here one night after spending 2 nights at the hikka trans hotel. Can safely say that we preferred staying at the hikka trans. Coral sands was clean and adequate but nothing special. At check in we were made to wait in the balcony of our room while someone was still in the room cleaning the bathroom. Later that... More

Nicely located just on the beach ... Clean n tidy place .... Extremely cooperative n courteous staff ... Decent breakfast spread n 2 swimming pools clean n well appointed .... Gym is bit sad - but who goes to a holiday with being weight conscious...rooms esp bathrooms can do better with some or at least a bit more of space
