We stayed twice in the Pearl Grand, when arriving and exiting the country. While not cheap we really enjoyed the comfort of the family rooms we booked. These were very large rooms with 1 king size bed and 2 singles. The lay out of the room also gave us a bit of privacy while sharing with our adult daughter. The bathrooms were huge and very modern. The large couch very relaxing for watching cable TV and the balcony had great views of the lightening shows over Colombo and busy Galle Rd. Breakfast was included in our room price so we grazed across the many things on offer at the excellent buffet.
We received a better reception from staff on our second visit at 1pm instead of our first at 2am. Cool towels and orange juice were provided while we checked in were very refreshing. For our 2am check in, where were asked to sit and wait when all we wanted to do was get in and go to sleep after the long journey from Australia.
I couldn't work out how to get my free foot massage on the first visit. On the second I was advised to go to the Wellness Spa on the top floor near the lovely pool. Make sure you go as the foot massage was very relaxing and free with the voucher provided on checking in.
The staff in this hotel were mostly very friendly and helpful. After our 2pm check out we spent the afternoon/evening hanging around the hotel until our midnight flight home. We managed to pass the time relaxing on the lovely roof by the pool and using the free wifi.
Pearl Grand was like a home away from home for us in Sri Lanka. We loved it!
