Paradise Beach Hotel

Reviewed January 22, 2014

Paid in full for 2 nights months ago. Arrived at 17:30 to be given "last room because we arrived so late". 220-22 & 320-22 rooms only have a view of the roof top mechanicals. No view of the beach. Door lock broken so put chair in doorway. Told there was no refund on rate because booked thro agent & it was up to them to give us a refund. Horrible experience....

Room Tip: I don't know what I could have done to have gotten the room I paid for having been told it was m...

The hotel has a great location next to the beach. The staff all seemed very friendly, and while the price is a lot less than the Jetwing Hotels in Negombo, there is a big difference. The rooms are very tired, the air con was noisy, the shower had no hot water and the quality of the breakfast was only average. With the new tollway into Colombo it is now easier to stay there rather than Negombo if you have a flight arriving late at night

Firstly the positives, its right on Negombo beach, and there are plenty of restaurants, shops and bars on the main road, albeit expensive and tourist oriented. It's also just a 20 minute drive to the airport. Staff are excellent and very helpful.

However the hotel is pretty tired and dated, and is in need of a makeover. Considering the quality of the hotel, its pretty overpriced.

I have just spent the last 8 weeks in the most beautiful surroundings complemented by the hotel accomodation we called home for that time.
The food was of the highest standard and the choices that we were given were buffet, snack menu or a la carte, and if you had any special preferences the chef accomodated you.
The staff and management couldnt do enough for you, rooms were changed every day, you were met with a smile morning noon and night and nothing was too much bother.
I was so overwhelmed with the christmas and new year gala dances that we have booked again to return next year for a further 10 weeks.
The hotel is closing for 3 months for refurbishment of all the rooms. I would highly recommend this hotel for a holiday of a lifetime experience in Sri Lanka.

I stayed one night at this hotel together with my friend to fly out of Sri Lanka the next day. This hotel has the most helpful staff ever. We found out that our flight was cancelled and that Sri Lankan Air did not try to cantact us. The hotelstaff helped us to call the airline to reschedule our tickets and print new ones. It was such a wonderful help!
The hotel is placed on the beach and has a nice little pool. The food in the bar was ok but the room was a disappointment. It has not been updated for a long time and was dirty. We stayed in the Goldi Sands Hotel (also in Negombo) one night when we arrived for our tour and payed half the prize and that hotel was much better. I would not stay here again but want to thank the wonderful staff for their help again.

We stopped off here as the first night of a tour.
Okay for that, right on the strip so good for pubs and cafes etc. The beach is in the back garden so it has all the facilities you need.
The staff were good, well trained and polite but the place lacks punch - all a bit laid back.
Fixtures and fittings around the room were poorly maintained - light not working here and something falling off the wall there - so I wouldn't have wanted to spend any length of time here as these little niggles get on my nerves and I end up chasing the staff to get it all fixed.
There are several new hotels being built along the beach so competition is going to hot up.

We stayed here one night after arriving in Colombo late and heading to Kandy the next day. As it was around Christmas time, I'll accept that the price might have been bumped up due to demand but otherwise it was definitely not worth $160 a night. The rooms were very basic - only 2 threadbare towels and one bar of soap, the bed was hard, the walls paper thin. Good things: nice view out the window to the pool and the beach, good breakfast and service was fine.I'd only recommend for one night if there is nowhere else to go, otherwise keep searching!
