The hotel is situated on the beach in a reasonably quiet area. Food was OK, room was very. basic but adequate. As Adam P comments about geckos in rooms, this is the case everywhere, they don't hurt anyone. Pool looked nice but didn't use it.

The hotel is in a nice location fronting a beach and the food was OK. Our room was clean but the air conditioning was very noisy and there was no hot water in the shower. Watch out for gekkos in the rooms. It is a good idea to close your suitcase before you retire for the night.

sanmali, Owner at Sanmali Beach Hotel, responded to this review

The hotel room referred to, was pending to be cleaned. It was mistakenly given to the reviewer as a cleaned room. There has never been a harsher criticism about our rooms prior to this. This is the very first time we received a one star rating. The pictures accompanying the review were very damaging, offensive and unfair. I request the...

We stayed here in July 2013 as the first night of an Exodus tour of Sri Lanka. The room was clean, the air conditioning fierce! The evening meal was the first buffet of many in Sri Lanka and was fine. There was a cricket match on the tv in the lounge and we enjoyed discussing the state of play with...

Nice stay. Decent size hotel with airy feel. All rooms face the sea. Some rooms have TV. Rooms a bit rundown - some refurbishing would be good. Note the hotel is in Marawila and not in Negombo. There are few hotels in Marawila along the beach front. Many residents have start claiming the land and beach. The restaurants in Marawila...
