Perfect Place to Relax
The staff was super helpful to accommodate our family with young children, even giving the kid's pool an extra cleaning so that we would be more comfortable. A great place to spend some quiet down time enjoying nature, wildlife, plants, etc.

very bad service
good location and very relaxing
The staff is very unattended to the guest, other kitchen / main restaurant, each department has one staff to carter to guest. Front desk service is very bad, attitude of staff is more like i dont care. 24hr room service as feature, but at 22.00hrs they shut down the kitchen and no room service. airport pick was requested, but not transport was sent for pick up and had to call get it clear, as was advice by front office manager he is not aware about the pick. Ranweli Holiday Village in service area its the worst experience i ever had come across. Hotel is very relaxing and very private

Beautiful Beach Resort
Beautiful beach, nice ocean front bungalow and well-manicured & clean surroundings
We were advised by our guide to stay our last night at Negombo to be near the airport so that it would not be so rush to catch our flight the next morning and we didn't regret it. It was quite an experience for my children to cross the muddy & sinister-looking river on the wooden raft and then to arrive at the resort which has a beautiful stretch of beach and has fantastic view of the ocean. We stayed at the seaview bungalow and it was very therapeutic to hear the sound of the waves. The room is clean enough but the TV reception was really bad. At night, we were pretty bored as there was no wifi in the room and no TV programmes to watch. But I guess if you are looking for a lazy holiday and just to sunbath, this will be the resort. On the whole, it was very pleasant to end our trip with a nice stay at Ranweli.

Not a bad pre-flight location
The best thing about this place was the pool, the comfy bed and the extensive buffet breakfast
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, although we found it charges inflated European prices for everything. This would be completely fine, however there are no other options for food around this place due to its remote location, forcing you to dine at the hotel.

The switch couldn't be used,so that the room was out of electricity and no one helped me solve this problem.

Amazing sunset view.
Private beach. Sunset. Friendly reception
We stayed only for one night so we could be close to the airport early the next morning. Seeing we'd have to leave at 4:00AM to catch our flight, we'd miss our breakfast.... which was included in the room rate. We asked if we could switch the meals and have dinner instead of the breakfast and the hotel manager, upon consideration of our request, agreed ;-)This was a very welcoming on his part. We were placed in a newly renovated room of the hotel and the room was modern and clear, yetlacked any feel of being in Sri Lanka. The beach area is very nice and the sunset was stunning. The beach bungalows, even though older, have more charm than the new rooms and are more private which are right on the beach. A fine stay for either first or last night in Sri Lanka. Only negative point...far too many loud tourist there for our liking ;-)
