One of the more upmarket hotels in Trinco with all the facilities you would expect, but with a laid back feel. The staff make the place, all are friendly, accommodating and can't do enough for you. Trinco itself is a wonderful place. Thankfully not yet over developed it retains a huge amount of charm and personality. Trinco Blu is the... More

So, we visited this hotel as our 5th accommodation in 18 days on Sri Lanka. Admin arrangements, check-in, housekeeping and bookings for trips etc. were all 1st class. The hotel is situated right on the beach, and is the last hotel on this stretch, which works to its advantage. The beach is clean without being spotless, and the water is... More

We had rooms next to the pool, lovely pool. Kids loved it. Restaurant was great - with great variety of food - pleased everyone. Beach on the hotel is beautiful- great to swim in the sea. We went on a couple of trips organised by the hotel. We did a snorkelling trip to pigeon island - great trip. Also went... More

Our stay at the Trinco Blu was to be the highlight of our trip, unfortunately, we were quickly disappointed upon our arrival. The pool and beach on the resort is great. The proximity to the beach is also wonderful, and a spot under the shade is easy to come by. Our disappointment was focused on the quality of the rooms.... More

Beautiful location right on the beach of the Trinco Blu hotel. The food is very good, we tried the crab curry which was amazing (and messy to eat: get ready for some manual work). Only drawback are the beach dogs walking around the tables, which don't look particularly healthy nor clean... but the place is worth it!

The hotel facilities and food are not great. It's just average. But the place is good for people who want to do water sports or spend a few hours at pigeon island snorkeling. These activities you can do from other hotels too, as this hotel does not offer anything too special.

We stayed 3 nights here in a beachfront chalet. The beach is stunning, the room was just right, you step out onto the sand, and it would be hard to fault this hotel. The room was clean and interestingly designed. There is everything you need incl good wifi and a safe in the room. The beach was pure heaven ,... More

Beautiful location and that's about it. Extremely rude staff, especially to women. Only would address my boyfriend and had one staff member even roll his eyes whilst I spoke to him. Not worth the price paid and definitely not up to 4 star standard. I would recommend staying elsewhere and coming during the day to enjoy the pool.
