We stayed here for 5 days over New Year. It was a lovely resort, beautiful beach and friendly staff. The pools were gorgeous which was good as the sea was too rough to swim in.
There's not much to do in Negombo so we did spend most of our time on the resort. Our only problem is that the food was first and foremost catering to westerners. The menu in the pool bar was just sandwiches and chips. You had to go to the indoor restaurant to order anything Sri Lankan but again the menu was a little limited. Surely there are light Sri Lankan dishes they could have offered. However the evening buffet was very good if you ignored the western pasta sections and focused on the Sri Lankan curries.
We also found a couple of places to eat nearby which were pretty decent.
So overall the resort was lovely, but it would be nice to see a five star resort like this promoting their own cuisine and really highlighting the delights that Sri Lanka has to offer. I can eat chips at home (although I don't generally)... Having pre paid for 5 days we were actually quite glad to be on our way as it felt a little like we could have been staying on the same resort anywhere in the world.
