              Friendly staff, quiet and nice view of the sea.

              It was pleasant and comfortably quiet. Nice beach view of the sea. Only concern is safety in regards to the surroundings at the beach side. there was one character who was showing off his private part at the right side of the area facing the sea. So disgusting!!!!

In fact it feels like it's the Ceylonica private beach.. Near the airport,so good to go to for the holiday start and finish..I stayed 3 weeks and had no problems....

              Great Hotel for transit passengers”

              Early check in at 7 AM, friendly employee, directly located at the beach

              We had a good time at the Ceylonica Beach Hotel during our 19hr stopover in Sri Lanka. Even if the official check in time is 12:00 PM and our room with AC was not ready yeat we were given a room without AC for two hours until ours was ready. We had breakfast included and were able to eat right after check in instead of the next morning (had to check out at 10PM to catch our flight). The breakfast was okay with two sunny side up eggs, toast with jam, fresh pineapple and coffee or tea. The employee was very friendly and helpfull. I would definetifely recommend to book a room with AC since they are more comfortable and closer to the beach. Furthermore I would recommend this hotel for a short stopover or at the day of arrival/ departure because the airport can be reached within 30 min by tuktuk. For a longer beach vacation it is not recommended because there are many facilities missing like proper sunbeds, towels for the beach, swimming pool...

              Clean, mosquito nets, free Wi-Fi in reception area, on the beach

              This hotel has a block of ground floor rooms, they all have a little sitting area with two chairs out facing he front lawn. It's right on the beach, not the prettiest beach mind you, lots of rubbish around that area although I did see one of the Ceylonica staff clearing the immediate area a little. Staff was friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is in reception area only, not in rooms. Rooms are clean and have mosquito nets. They're nothing special but def value for money for those travelling on a budget.

              Within walking distance to town

              Location-wise it is good as it is only 1km away from the town and within walking distance to the lagoon (about 2km away). As the rooms are located right next to the beach, it is inevitable that the floor is a bit moist and sticky. However, the warm and friendly staff made up for this small short-coming.

              this little place has a lovely ambience, with well-kept grounds and just a short few steps to the beach--where i had good swims. they are building a new reception area--sorry to say, for i love the feel of the old one, but they tell me it is getting too old and need soo many repairs. the staff are friendly, helpful, courteous...make you feel at home, not like a short term visitor. i wish i'd had longer to stay. food is excellent--try the deviled prawns! i definitely will return here next time i'm in the area--and won't waste time going out trying other restaurants--they may be fancier, but this one has great food and is lovely, small, simple--feels good to be here. may the "improvements" not change the atmosphere!
