Go if you like eating in a works canteen!
The grounds, the pool, and location for airport
Totally tragic that the food is so so bad! The buffet was a bland,tepid and tasteless. For the second day we opted for the snack menu...the restaurant has all the charm of station waiting room..The front desk staff were totally inefficient ..such a wasted opportunity as the grounds and the pool were beautiful. The bungalow we had was more than adequate ... But for a transit hotel no room service after 11pm and breakfast between 7.30 & 9.30 is not acceptable a night plus taxes we felt we should not have had to resort to eating toasted sandwiches in our room on our last night in beautiful Sri Lanka

Terrible food but good for the airport
The location, the pool, only staying one night
The Tamarind Tree was our last stay on our Honeymoon in Sri Lanka and was always just meant to be a stopover close to the airport so we weren't expecting much. The room was clean, though very basic and there was no free wifi - there was a paid option but we were not that bothered. At night all the power was turned off to the room - obviously to try and save money - but this meant that our room got very hot without the fans / air con on. The food was disgusting - luke warm buffet food that had been stood out for hours and was never refreshed, it was tasteless mush and I was rather fearfull we may get food poisoning from it! The saving grace was the pool, very clean and large with plenty of sun loungers to sit on. In conclusion I felt that the Tamarind Tree was ok for one night before we flew home but because it is so close to the airport I felt they did not feel the need to try very hard.

The hotel is mainly used as a short stop over before getting early flights from the national airport. However it thinks it is an Edwardian BRitish bungalow retreat the rooms are dated and cavonernous

Good for Airport
Location, Room size, Swimming pool
My wife and I booked Tamarind Tree as an airport hotel prior to an onward journey to Kandy, having arrived at about midnight in Colombo As such the place was adequate. The bungalow was large but not particularly modern. The bathroom was large but coldly sparse. It bills itself as a resort but I would not recommend it as somewhere for an extended stay.
