A great small hotel on the beach but!

Service, room and pool
Hotel is a great find and its the second time I have stayed there but there is a but. There is a new hotel being built adjacent to the property and the banging goes on all day and sometimes into the night. More aggravating is they let the hotel out to private parties. On my final day it was a childrens pool party. The children and their families took over the pool area and surroundings which is not that large and the noise was horrendous. There is no other area to sit in so it was lump it or leave for the day. Hardly what you expect from your hotel stay.

nothing special

staff, beach
After all guest houses in Srí Lanka we felt like in better one. I was looking forward to staying finally in the hotel but was disappointed. The room smelled from lack and the bathroom wasn't so clean. Also towels were like 1000times washed. Breakfast was till 10am but at 9am the call us to the room if we're coming and after stood all breakfast behind your back. Also I missed some path on the beach from the hotel because during the day the sand was very hot. And also when you lied on the deck chair in hotel garden next to the beach all the time some souvenir seller came to bother

Not a pleasant stay

The hotel is at least located on the beach.
It was not a pleasant stay. It could have been the room we were in but,,,, The AC blew onto the bed, the sheets were threadbare and there weren't any blankets, the pillows were thin and the bed was not really comfortable. The cleaners decided to clean a room at 10:30pm dragging furniture along the hallway, clanking cutlery and generally being quite noisy The walls were paper thin. The overall feeling of the hotel was claustrophobic and depressing. The staff at breakfast had little English and the food quality was just OK.

Nice stay at Rani Beach

Location, staff and clean
Good hotel especially after getting after a long flight, we did 4 days which was just right. For what you pay you get good value for money. Staff friendly and helpful. Mid budget hotel ticked all the boxes.

Quite Awful

Friendly staff & right on the beach
I had to move out! Bed bugs! I was seriously bitten over 4 nights - I thought it was mosquitoes until I found a bug! The staff are really kind and friendly and the location is good if you want a beach holiday BUT like all the hotels in the Negombo area they are VERY expensive for what you get (thanks to the very high govt. taxes). Overall no value for money in Sri Lanka compared to, say, Thailand where you can have 4* for the same price and very nice properties. This hotel like the other 2 I've stayed at along the Negombo beach is run down & very basic. It feels like a cheap motel room in rural Australia. I moved out despite having booked & paid for 2 weeks.

Decent entry point for Sri Lanka.

Location, swimming pool, and excellent staff.
The Rani Beach resort is a comfortable place to stay, about 20-25 minutes drive from Colombo airport, close to restaurants (along the main street Lewis Place), and has an inviting swimming pool, with comfortable lounges, that looks out to the sea. Negombo was my start point for a four-week Sri Lankan stay and I had booked three nights at Rani. The first room I was given did not meet my expectations; it had a single bed, no balcony, and a number of the wiring connections had not been made (TV, phone...). I complained immediately to the reception staff, who understood my concerns and promised to move me to a better room for the other two nights (the hotel was fully-booked my first night). This happened and the room was far more spacious, with balcony. Apart from that hiccup, all went smoothly. All staff were friendly, attentive, and responsive. The breakfast buffet was very good, covering Sri Lankan and Western foods. The swimming pool and lounge area is excellent, looking out to the sea. The beach itself is mediocre, compared to what you find further south or to the east. The swimming pool bar is a nice place for a beer, watching the sun set! All-in-all Rani's is a good choice for Negombo Beach.

Overprized rooms; friendly staff; NO wifi

close to beach, swimming pool
Disappointing: overprized rooms, even with reductions. NO wifi in rooms, almost none public areas; Food was tasty, but more expensive than in close by restaurants. Friendly staff, but not always well trained. Close to beach, nice swimming pool.

An excellent hotel in an excellent location

great staff, great location, clean and modern
This was our 3rd stay in Negombo, but our 1st at the Rani beach - and we will definitely be returning. Danesh and his team could not have made us feel more welcome. The rooms were clean and modern, and the views across the Ocean were magnificent. The pool is like stepping into a warm bath and the sunbeds overlook the beach. The hotel is located just short walk away from the bars and restaurants of Negombo, and the town itself is a short tuk tuk ride. The buffet breakfast is varied enough to suit all tastes, and eggs are cooked to order. The main menu again has a variety of international dishes, all cooked to order. All the staff were friendly and easy to talk to, and withn a few hours of arriving knew our names and didn't forget them once during our stay! I would highly recommend this hotel, and can't wait to return in 2015.

Nice rooms, food was okay, beach is close
Where to start. Out by the pool area is where I will start. The staff there are completely incompetent. 1/2 hour to get a drink, that is IF they ask you. I was there 4 days before someone asked if we wanted a drink. Asking for towels and cushions for the chairs is like pulling chicken teeth and is also very time consuming. One time we waited 45 minuets for towels so we were dry and just went back to the room. The rooms are nice and big so that was good. The bathrooms are big also, it takes a few minuets for hot water but is is there. They dont have blankets on the beds only sheets so you have to ask for a second set if you need them. Be sure to let the cleaning staff to know you want toilet paper or it will not be there. I had to go to the front desk 2 different times and ask for some. The breakfast was okay. Good selection of food, nothing great but is worth eating. The drinks are by far way to overpriced. Go 2 doors up to get beer at less than half the price at the pool or in the room. The beach is open to the locals and they are always there bothering the customers always. This is the worst part of this hotel. The staff would just let them walk around trying to see you things. They do not understand the word no as every time I said it they would offer us something else. You have to get rude before they leave you alone. There should be a fence up so they cannot trespass. We enjoyed the country but next time we will go somewhere more secluded and enjoy our time more. We would not go back to this hotel.
