Located in the pretty hamlet of Negombo, Camelot Beach Hotel offers lively beachfront accommodations and plenty of activity. Walking towards Kochchikade from the hotel, guests can browse a selection of stalls selling local crafts and souvenirs and will also find a good choice of restaurants and internet cafes. Overlooking palm trees and blue waters, Camelot is a cool, retro-styled property with neat green lawns and primary-colored sun loungers. A poolside bar provides the cocktails and the music, and bright, modern rooms offer views over the Indian Ocean and the adjoining stretch of pristine sand.

Good for a few days”
Hotel is decent for a few days. Staff especially in the restaurant are friendly and very helpful. Rooms are comfortable in the new building although the design of the shower is such that it floods the toilet area. But overall good for 3 days of relaxation around the wonderful swimming pools and walk on the beach.

Perfect as usual ”
Great location, modern clean rooms, great food and superb staff. Our third visit and it will not be the last
Dear Craig, Thank you for taking the time to review Camelot yet again, we look forward to welcoming you back as always. Yours sincerely Kimberley Adams Director
Nice pool, beautiful sunset view, actual beach front location, close to airport. Shower smelled of sulphur, room looked very weathered, actually that goes for the entire hotel, elevator smelled pretty bad, staff service was average, breakfast buffet was average, hotel charges about 4000 rupees more for a taxi than regular price to airport. I wouldn’t stay here again.
Dear Eugene, Thank you for choosing to stay at Camelot. Your comments on our housekeeping have been duly noted and necessary actions will be taken to rectify them accordingly. With regard to the transfers to the airport - the service provided is an outsourced company and is not one that belongs to the hotel. I apologise on behalf of them for not meeting your standards. I do hope you offer us an opportunity by staying again and showing you true Camelot hospitality. regards - Management.
Nice end to a good break”
The room was basic but satisfied the need. WiFI in the room was not good. The food was really good although the desserts were average. Good location since this was the end of our break and we wanted to be near the airport.
Dear Anupama, Thank you for choosing to stay at Camelot. Your comments have been duly noted and will be taken in consideration to help us improve our offerings accordingly. I look forward to welcoming you back Regards Management
Nice hotel but bad beach”
Hotel is good, food is OK. Coctails good. Enought sunbeds and towels. Drinking water they leave in the room or sell during meals is bad and taste like plastic. Newly renovated rooms are good, confortable. Best is the AC, because not blowing straight to the bed, that is common in Sri Lanka. Also thick blankets was super. Enjoied finally chilly night sleeps. Beach is bad, water brown and waves. Everybody was around the pools. Beach was empty. Good hotel for before or after flights but not for full vacation. Enjoyed full board. Fustrating was, that you had to pay for water during meals. Its not so expensive, but always problems to sighn the bills and water was not tasty. Be aware, that during check out they charge you also about the food, drinks that was not ordered. They do not give you any copy of the bills, so hard to keep everything on mind. Bar orders took sometimes up to 1 hour.
Dear Katrin, Thank you for taking time to review your recent stay at the Camelot Beach Hotel,Negombo. Appreciate your positive comments on the rooms and cocktails. Noted your comments on the water and the bar orders taking too much time and extend our apologies. Sincerely, Management
Great hotel to finish our touring around Sri Lanka at. Negombo is a little more expensive than other areas we have traveled to, but good value meals can be had a few minutes walk from the hotel. Eating/drinking at the hotel is expensive, 300SLR for a bottle of water (the same can be bought across the road for 70SLR). But the hotels facilities are great, two (very clean) pools and direct views/access to the beach front. Breakfast is varied and plentiful. The room was clean, but the temperature of the hot water varied between tepid and hot, day depending. Definitely get a sea view room to make the most of the great sun sets!
Dear Gary, Thank you for taking time to review your recent stay at the Camelot Beach Hotel,Negombo. Appreciate your comments on the facilities,pools,beach access,room product and breakfast offering. Regards, Reza Sinnen /General Manager
Relaxing and chilled out”
Great breakfast - our dinner the first night (fillet steak) was amazing - unfortunately when we ordered it the next night it was not the same quality which was disappointing. Otherwise, the location and facilities are excellent. Staff were very helpful.
I liked the Hotel very much . Staff make a big difference. Thank you for being so genuine in all queries i ask for. At Reception I came across with Roshani and a nother young lady , i cant recall the name. and one of the staff at Restaurant , whom i felt really innocence and willing to help. I wish you guysall the best. Keep up the good qualities and i wish you guys the best in your carriers. look forward to see you next time. In General , i could not find any reason to complain about the Hotel and Its facilities.
A good find”
Stayed here with family for a short getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. Camelot was a random selection as no one we knew had ever been here but it was definitely a good find. The service was very good (apart from a delay in picking up used dishes after we ordered room service). The room and washroom were clean, comfortable and spacious. Though there weren't too many options at the buffet, the food was very nice. The hotel is undergoing renovations at present but this had absolutely no impact on our stay.
This hotel has 2 different buildings, one good quality and renovated.... other bad quality and old. I paid for a luxury double room with balcony and I was send to the old building which is not even a 2 star hotel. They offered me the same room but in new building but with an additional cost of 15 USD per day as a special offer... so I accepted as me and my wife didnt want to feel uncomfortable during our weekend holidays.
Perfect after a long flight from Sweden...”
Perfect room, beach, pool, restaurant and staff. Try spa on the other side of the street, working together with the hotel - Golden Hands. From stress - to calm in just a few treatments. They really have GOLDEN HANDS!
Dear Kent, Thank you for taking time to review your recent stay at the Camelot Beach Hotel,Negombo. Appreciate your comments on the room product,beach,pool ,culinary offering and service staff. We look forward to seeing you again. Reza Sinnen/General Manager.
Nice hotel , very nice swimming pools, lots of sun beds. Food was good too. We stayed at New Year’s eve, they have provided Gala dinner, with a very nice setup, live music and fireworks. However, we booked a room with a balcony, but on arrival we been told there are no balcony rooms available, so we been given a room without a balcony, even though, another couple checked in after us been given exactly the same room with a balcony. Air conditioner very noisy. Hotel is right on the beach, but if you want a beach holiday, better choose different location, as the sea is a bit rough.
Dear Evelina, Thank you for taking time to review your recent stay at the Camelot Beach Hotel. Negombo. Appreciate your positive comments on the hotel,pools,sunbeds and the culinary offering. My apologies on the non availability of the balcony room as normally your confirmation should show the exact room type booked. We are also looking at changes to conditioning and hope to have them fixed soon. Sincerely, Reza Sinnen/General Manger.
Fantastic place to stay & brilliant staff”
The location, rooms & facilities were fantastic! Even better were the staff & the amazing buffet! My husband & kids who are foreigners loved the European selection provided. There was a good mixture of local & European food. The pool’s were clean & beautiful! Short walk to beach. Absolutely enjoyed our stay and would be definitely visiting again.

Good value for money ”
Fantastic food catering for both local and foreign taste. Super friendly and always helpful staff nice location by the sea very nice pools . They also arranged my onward travel. Overall very satisfied
Reasonable value, but poor WiFi ”
I had a nice room (122) in the newly renovated wing. It was clean and well maintained. The WiFi was poor: very slow and intermittent. Management was unable to completely solve the problem. Breakfast was good; evening meal was satisfactory. TOP TIP: arrive early to access the full variety of food.
