I've been to Negombo many times and have had a wide variety of hotel experiences from the filthy to the sublime -- the Blue Elephant is at the sublime end of this spectrum. Gorgeous, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, good AC, incredibly helpful staff. Easily the nicest place I've been in Negombo and, for the money (30 USD-ish), one of the nicest in Sri Lanka and possibly all of South Asia.
