I write this review whilst staying at Cinammon village in Habarana (which we are thoroughly enjoying) and find it really difficult to believe they belong to the same chain. We felt little genuine warmth at Trinco blu and although some staff were friendly we felt many were not. They often seemed uncomfortable when asking in a stilted manner ' where... More

The frontdesk manger(Lorean) was very nice and decorated our amazing room beautifully and made us have a real honeymoon experience. We had a romantic dinner at the beach, this was a... More

The hotel is situated in a great area. We stayed for two nights on FB basis and were blown away by the food at every meal. Not only was the spread big but the food was excellent! We had a great ocean view room, which was comfortable with a big bathroom with an outdoor shower. The only down side was... More

We had wonderful two nights on full board basis. Hotel is located away from the town, by the golden sand if Uppuweli. Hotel staff was friendly and they looked after us very personally. So many excursions were offered. Food was so variable and one of the best hostels I visited in terms of food. In fact we were never bored... More

We didnt stay at the hotel, but visited the restaurant as we were staying closeby and also visitng the water sports centre next door. Ambience is nice- being alfresco by the beach its hard to go wrong. But all the meals we had here were disappointing. I ordered the traditional hot butter cuttlefish (described as deep fried) but which arrived... More

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who expects a four-star stay. If you're looking for proximity to the beach, then you won't be disappointed and the local fisherman are a delight to watch. The rooms are okay but dated. The restaurant in our view was poor, the food was cold, (chicken curry!!) and in general of limited choice.... More
