    Good hotel at an amazing location”
    Location of the hotel is excellent. Food was decent. A bit rundown hotel but is value for money. Only drawback is Wifi is available only in lobby so you have to run to the lobby if you have to use internet. Staff is friendly and helpful. Won't mind staying again at this hotel if offered at same price.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Nice hotel with sea views.”
    Pool, view.
    We thought this hotel was in Negombo but it was actually in Marawila. A tuk tukride into negombo is about 45 minutes that that was a bit of a surprise for us. Still a nice quiet location. A good place to relax. I wouldn't bother with the spa there, not a great massage. Food is very good but be prepared to wait a while before you get your order.

    Beautiful hotel ”
    food is good
    the hotel is very beautiful which is near the beach, however you can not swim in the sea there since too much rocks. the people there are very friendly and helpful. only one thing is that it is far away from the town which means you can not taste the great seafood easily.

    the stay would have been good if i get this hotel room.. ironically i got room in next hotel.. well what happened is.. by the time i reach this hotel which i booked thru Agoda ,, reception said no rooms available inthe hotel so they offered me outside hotel one small room with attached bath room.. it was nasty has cement flooring and dirty smell and kind of rubbish outside.. i immediatly shouted there and ask for compensation they gave another hotel room..which was equally worst..... had to cut my stay.. a sad experience..

    It was not what I expected.”
    Food was good at the restaurant. That was the best feature.
    The rooms were not bad. The beach is under construction due to the government,same with others in the area so phone and see. The hotel was not bad but not what I expected. The pool cleaned everyday but was in bad shape and the water was not changed in months, but I still went in. The staff was very good. Lots of bugs at night around lights. So leave your room's outside light off. No TV, WIFI yes. The beach will get fixed by the government. Also it was the rainy season so the water levels were hiding some of the beach.

    Peaceful and good pool
    we stayed for two nights at the end of our sri lanka trip. it was about 15 mins north of negombo and about an hour from the airport. a very quiet and peaceful hotel. there was only about 10 other people in the hotel while we were there. a good sized pool and beach where the sea came right up to the edge. food was great, apart from when there was a buffet on the first night which was pretty poor. however, the curry we had for lunch was fantastic.
