This is an older hotel (built in the 1970s) but renovated recently. It could still use some touch up, but overall the experience is very good. Everything seemed to work for what I was looking for in a hotel here in Negombo. The rooms (at least the one I was in) are very large. Mine has a balcony overlooking the very wide sandy beach. I've slept on many different "signature" beds in chain hotels, but the mattress and pillows here were exceptionally comfortable. There's a large flat screen tv and mini-bar. The bathroom has an immense tub and enclosed shower. There's free wi-fi in the room - although it went out for a while and when it came back it wasn't terribly fast.
The pool is HUGE ... with a huge shallow section for kids. There is a beach attendant to set up lounge chairs and provide towels.
Dining is mostly buffet (although there is an a la carte menu and room service is available. The buffet features delicious Sri Lankan curries and specialties but includes some western items. (Breakfast has three sections: Sri Lankan, Western and "Healthy.")
Staff is very attentive. We booked the hotel car and driver for several trips (don't even think of driving yourself).
