rather poor

only thing is its close to the beach.
no room service. dirty fridge and toilets. rather over priced. no wifi. breakfast was horrible. pool was extremely dirty. infact the filtration system was turned off. visa card pos system was not functioning. rather inconvenient this. beach was ok but cannot bathe because the location was such. rooms are very run down and badly maintained. linen smells awfull.

Nice quiet stay

Quiet stay, swimming pool, not many tourists
Nice stay. Decent size hotel with airy feel. All rooms face the sea. Some rooms have TV. Rooms a bit rundown - some refurbishing would be good. Note the hotel is in Marawila and not in Negombo. There are few hotels in Marawila along the beach front. Many residents have start claiming the land and beach. The restaurants in Marawila are rather pricey. CAWA is good.

Very quiet, nice. fine pool, very friendly staff

staff, pool
Very good, But it is not near Negombo. But to relax and lean back, it was perfect, very much because of the staff.

Loved every minute

excellent staff, amazing view, remote location, quiet, affordable
I initially planned on staying one week at the Sanmali resort as my first stop in Sri Lanka, but enjoyed it so much I added another week The staff was so friendly & accommodating it was easy to feel like I lived there. The pictures fail to do the sunset justice, I would (in fact, will) stay there again. However, some notes for the potential visitor: -The Wi-Fi is hit & miss: sometimes it's great, other times you get little to no signal even standing next to the router. Be prepared if you need to regularly check e-mail or similar. -There are a lot of insects in & around the hotel. No harmful ones beyond mosquitoes, but if you come expecting "showroom floor" room you will be dissapointed. Small spiders, bees, & other bugs abound as well as a large number of geckos. Personally, these qualities make the place MORE appealing, but if you enjoy vacations as sterile as your living room, this is not the place for you. That's it. I'd recommend this resort to anyone.

Very good price quality balance

Simple but good rooms, nice garden with pool, right on the beach
Nice hotel, 60 min drive from Colombo airport. Quiet village on the beach. Friendly personnel, but poor in speaking english, say yes to every question. Good kitchen, we had breakfast, lunch and dinner. Rooms simple but adequate. Our non functioning airco was immediately repaired. Beachservice could be better ( parasols, lying beds etc.) Overall we were satisfied and happy.
