Are there cheaper places to stay in Negombo? Of course there are, but Serendib is a clean, professionally run, tranquil retreat, set off the bustling main road by a few blocks. It is a perfect place to start and end your tour off Sri Lanka. My wife and I spent a few days there after our arduous 30 hour journey from the states. We relaxed in the courtyard, played with the dogs, and recovered from jet lag. This is a guest-house with five rooms, and large common areas, that are comfortable and welcoming. Breakfast is included, and the owners don't charge you for extra pots of tea, or fruit.
The real star of the place is Budikka (owner) who sets everything at ease with his mellow vibe and kind nature. He is full of helpful info and advice, and was the main reason we returned for our final night after our month-long tour.
