“Peaceful Beach experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Acess: aprox 5 km from Chilaw town. No Hotel Boards displayed by the side of the road. The hotel is however is on google maps.

Location: Quiet place. Only becomes noisy if there is a party at hotel. Hotel has a private beach area. It is well maintained and has adequate security. No problem from vendors or beggars.

Staff: Most are very friendly. Most of them speak english too.

Room. We stayed in a suite room. Very spacious. Clean. Had a king size bed extra small bed for the kid, a writing table, wall cupboard, safety locker, minibar, tea making facility, 2 arm chairs with a table and a sofa. Had AC. The front door lock was malfunctioning and we could not open it and the hosekeeping did not attend to it properly. This was a real headache because we could not lock the door!!

Bathroom: very well lit bathroom which had a transparent roof. had a mini jacuzzi which was out of order, hot water and clean towels. The flush system was giving problems time to time.

Food: Meals were perfect! Desserts were of poor quality. The Watalappan (Egg and Coconut milk pudding) and Ice cream was low in quality.

Price: For the triple room SL Rs 15000 F/B reasonable. Snacks are also resonably priced.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Carolina Beach Hotel is a quiet, small hotel with 15 rooms in cottage-style. The rooms are well equipped with safety lockers and coffee/tea making facilities. They have their own, very calm and clean beach and also an outdoor swimming pool with a kiddies part. The hotel organize several tours, such as a boat ride in the Chilaw lagoon and whale watching trips. They also have bicycles for rent. The staff is excellent and very friendly, only not everybody speaks English. It is a very good place to stay with children.
