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.

                Majority of the issue comes down to the room location”
                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.

                Disappointed ”
                First and foremost, I’m not sure how this hotel managed to get a 3 1/2 star rating. I would think a 2 star rating best describes this hotel. We had a room on the ground floor which had a really bad musty smell. The place was full of mosquitoes. We were bitten by many mosquitoes while having breakfast at the restaurant. They wouldn’t provide mosquito coils unless requested. We also had non-staying guests occupying the patio of our room because they wanted to use the hotel swimming pool. Surprisingly, it seems that the hotel management is aware of this yet condones it at the expense of the privacy of guests. On a positive note, breakfast served at the restaurant is pretty decent.

                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.
