We have been eating here twice and really enjoyed both dinners. On our first time we had a dinner in the Crab restaurant. We had crabs (cooked in different styles), which was very good, but took us 1 hour of waiting. Even though it was still worth it. On our second visit, we decided to try the other restaurant with...

This was the final stop on our honeymoon and it was the most disappointing place we stayed in despite being the most expensive. We paid extra for a beach chalet which was not what we expected. It had nice views looking at the ocean but the room was quite small and it just felt like a standard hotel room and... More

The room smelled awful, service was really poor and crows made the stay noisy and uncomfortable. Definately needs to improve on their buffét as well, it became pretty repetitive after a few days. Beach was great however.

We stayed two nights at Trico Blu. Food was very good and had plenty of options. Staff was friendly and helpful. Beach next to the hotel is spectacular. Air conditioning in our room didn't work very well.

We stayed for 12 nights in a Beach Bungalow. Rooms are rather small. However terraces are very nice and the beach and water sports facilities are great. Food is excellent. The main bar with its pool table is great.

Probably the best place to stay in Trincomalee if you can afford it. Nice private beach. Excellent restaurants and a good water sports shop. Service is good. Pool is excellent I stayed three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. No complaints

One of the better hotels at the beach of Trincomalee. However far below the average level of the other Cinnamon hotels in Sri Lanca, the hotel looks a bit aged and the food is more basic. The rooms in the ground level give direct access to the pool and beach.

Stayed for 4 nights - July 2016. Me and my friend stayed at Trinco Blue and loved it! The property is really nice with a nice pool and well-maintained beach. We requested for one of the nicer rooms on the ground floor facing the pool and the management helped arrange for the same. The ground staff is very polite and... More

An amazing hotel in a perfect spot on the beautiful Uppuveli beach. We had a room facing straight onto the white sand, and found the beach perfect for swimming. The pool is also great, staff were lovely and food delicious, with good Sri Lankan and international options (ate well at The Crab restaurant, and stuffed ourselves at the extensive breakfast...

Great location for the beach. But the hotel needs to be upgraded. You're paying 5-star price for what is actually like 3-star hotel. Stray dogs and cats everywhere in the hotel. The hotel is outdoor concept so only place the AC works is your room.
