We stayed in negombo on the way in and out of Sri Lanka - and stayed at this hotel on the way out. It was the same price as our first hotel but much nicer. High standard hotel, friendly staff gave us a free late check out so we felt pretty well taken care of.

The staff were always helpful, nothing was too much trouble, enjoyed all our meals, check in and out was quick and smooth.

Ideal location for accommodation near airport, beach front hotel with good pool facilities, close to restaurants and shopping, good intro to Sri Lanka, or wind down before departing.

                Incredibly helpful and friendly staff, we choose this hotel because it was close the airport with a pool for a few days of relaxing after a long journey. It was clean, spacious, and friendly with a good breakfast. What more could you want.

                Staff, Location, Value for Money
                It was one of the best weekends for me and my girlfriend the days we stayed at the Golden Star Beach Hotel. Value for money is at its best and I would surely recommend the Hotel for Foreigners as well as the Locals. The location is central and plenty of leisure activities are there to enjoy. One point I must highlight is the 'staff' that are really helpful and provide a speed and a superb Service.

                Right on the beach with a fantastic pool and bar!”
                The rooms were worth the price. The pool being right by the beach was great. The breakfast buffet was incredible.
                We enjoyed our stay here. It is right on the beach and the pool is great. We enjoyed the local breakfast as well as all your western staples. The local restaurants and bars are all within walking distance and if they aren't; your trishaw is less than $1 to any where you would want to eat or drink. the best part about this beach is the close proximity to the airport (especially if you have a 1 AM flight). We would stay here again and recommend this wonderful hotel to anybody!

                Our room was nice and clean and serviced daily. We had a room with view over the pool area and out over the beach. The pool bar is nicely placed under palms between the beach and the pool where they serving drinks and snacks at any time. Breakfast was included in our room rate and was set up in the main restaurant as a buffet with juice, fruits, eggs, cereals and various type of breads with jam, very delicious. Dinner at the restaurant is rather expensive for Sri Lanka but there are places nearby where you can eat too.

                My main issue was the room and its location. It was what seemed like a maze to get to, and once arrived it seemed more like a room that had a bad floor layout and they decided to cobble something together during construction. Speaking of construction the room seemed like it was partially under construction when rented out to me; specifically the bathroom. Also because of the location it was close to the main road or something that seemed to have a loud generator blaring outside of the window at night and early in the morning. Service also was a bit slow in the restaurant. Great beach access though.

                horrible, They sprayed insecticide near the dining area while all the dishes were out. We had to rewash our plates. Second they sprayed during the evening while people were around the pool and you couldn't go out of your room. We were told that they don't even know what is in the insecticide. This is shear insanity. They could use electrical mosquito traps, propane mosquito traps as well as nontoxic neem spray. I would never go there again.

                We had a very enjoyable stay and our children loved it. Perhaps the 'family room' we were given was a little small although adequate and the en-suite bathrooms lacked any ventilation. The drains in the bathroom were a bit smelly though all this matched our expectations. The rooms were cleaned every day and the A/C and WiFi facilities were very good.

                Location for Airport
                The official pictures were obviously taken some time ago. Faded glory would be the polite way to describe this hotel. Pool area dirty and poorly maintained, drain covers and doors to pump rooms etc missing or open, outside toilets unusable, tatty grounds, food seriously overpriced for the quality, rooms basic, bathrooms dirty, cracked tiles & bathroom equipment stained & tatty looking. At the end of the day this is a cheap beach hotel - but its not a bargain, you are getting what you pay for not what the official pictures are showing. We had to wait 7 hours for the extra child bed we booked, involving three phone calls and 2 visits to reception. In the end had to stand there and demand it so we could go to bed at night (it was New Year, so probably a skeleton staff on, but 7 hours for a bed that was promised on arrival is slow on any day of the year?)

Good buffet breakfast. If you want to eat elsewhere there are a myriad of places on the street outside to suit all tastes and prices.Also the airport is only 15-20 mins away by taxi or tuk-tuk so we have used it when arriving from and going to the airport. The hotel also has a safe feel about it and you can trust the staff which is very important.

The toilet did not flush properly always and we had to fix it a few times. The flow of water from the shower was very slow and did not make for a comfortable experience. Though it was fixed and replaced it did not work properly.
