                Great value for money. Very kind staff We stayed 1 night in this hotel with 2 small kids. They were able to arrange a very early check-in as our flight arrived at 5am. The staff was very helpful and kind trying to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We had breakfast and diner in the restaurant and were both times good food. Full plates for good price. Swimming pool was nice and at good temperature. Shower was cold in the morning though.

The rooms are very clean, the air conditioning operates well and warm water is available the whole day. Breakfast is served in the upper floor with ocean view. What is a bit of a problem is that there are windows in each room I stayed in that cannot be blackout during the night, and you have to wear a mask if you need darkness to sleep.

                Relaxing, affordable hotel in a quiet locationDuring my recent stay of 13 days at the Ocean Pearl, I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful to me during my visit to Negombo. Giving directions, answering questions, helping to find converters for my tablet and cell phone, using local bus line (stop is in front of hotel to the left), cooking me any requested meals,. I was touched by how they looked out for me, their sense of humor and sincerity. The hotel is well maintained, clean,has free wifi ,good quiet safe location. The a/c works well in the room as did the little fridge. There are a couple of little stores nearby to purchase water and other small items. A couple of eating places are nearby including Rohan's place and one of the JetWing hotels. Three local hotels offer use of their swimming pools for a reasonable fee. I never got a mosquito bite and no net is needed at Ocean Pearl. The airport is about 25 minutes away by tuk-tuk. When coming in use the prepaid taxi service in the airport. Cheaper deal and use tuk- tuk ( 900rps) when leaving unless you have a big family. The hotel will arrange a taxi for you for 1500 rps out to airport.

                Location

                Located just in front of the Negombo beach, Ocean Pearl Hotel offers a basic and large room for travellers. Rather basic and clean. Unfortunately, there was a major black-out on the night I arrived - seems like it's a common thing when the rain gets heavy. I waited for 4 hours before the electricity came back and that I could shower. The staff could not do anything about it but nonetheless helped to occupy my time by chatting with me (I stayed in the lobby as the rooms were pitch dark with no ventilation) in the candlelight.

                Clean, Friendly staff, close to airport

                We arrived Sri Lanka in the midnight and want to take a rest as early as possible. This hotel is just about 15-20 minutes drive, which is exactly what I want. The bathroom is very clean, and I love the little garden. We can walk to the beach in 10 minutes. Unluckily, I find some ants on the bed sheets which I think someone has eaten on this bed before. So, I told the staff about this and they change another room for me very fast. And next day I saw they were cleaning the room. The staff is so friendly and attentive that make me feel unforgetable.

                Very good hotel to stay in Negambo. Good clean rooms, big bathroom and comfortable bed. There is a LCD and a mini fridge in the room but no electric kettle. The bus stand is just outside the hotel, takes 20 rs to take you as far as the negambo bus stop! Don't waste your money on tuk tuks as they overcharge. All the staff were good especially the older lady and the older man at the check in desk! Thank you for helping us save a lot of money! I will recommend this hotel to everyone!

                Location comfortable price

                This is a great hotel for the price . It's on beach road but at the far end from negombo ,so if your getting the train from colombo get off at Kattawu which is the first stop after negombo. And it's a 20 min walk or 5 min tuk tuk .if you get off at negombo it's 350lkr to this hotel by tuk tuk, if your coming from the airport it's about half an hour and 1000 lkr. The hotel is modern and all the rooms have balconies facing into the hotel ( slightly odd ) and my room didn't have a view outside , just a small high up window ! The room was medium size and two single beds , a tv that only showed a snow storm, ( on every channel) ,and a reasonable bathroom with a good shower ! It was clean ,and 6 out of 10 for being quiet as it could be a bit echoey and I could hear the receptions phone ringing at night . It's on the road so some road noise but not bad as after about midnight this end of the beach is very quiet. You can walk to all the night spots and I'd recommend you eat the rice and curry at Serindib or the best devilled fish at the windmill !

                it was a great holiday.friendly and helpful staff.”

                big and clean room.very good restaurant.free wifi very fast.

                me ans my husband, we spend one month in ocean pearl hotel and it was like being at home. The hotel is quite small so the staff take good care of every single guest. The room service was very good and fast. We booked a deluxe room and it was very big and comfortable, with air/co, tv, frigobar, free wifi and a balcony. At night it was very quiet. At the restaurant is possible to have very nice meals and big portions with reasonable prices. The main quality of the hotel anyway is the staff. All of them are really kind and ready to help you anyhow. The manager as well takes good care of the guests and he helped us to arrange all our trips around the island. We recommend this hotel 100%!

                comfortable and basic”

                close to airport, near beach and budget priced

                We arrived around midnight and left about 9am. We chose to stay overnight in Negombo because it is closer to the airport than Colombo and also because we were heading north the next day. We wanted a reasonably priced budget hotel because we were there only for 9hours max. Hence it didn't really matter that the room didn't have a view - it in fact had large windows looking into the lobby hence the curtains were drawn closed all the time. The breakfast was not good and the bread was hard and going stale so we had breakfast at a cafe after we checked out. Basically we got what we paid for and it was fine. Although I don't think we will stay there again...

                Value for money, super clean rooms, Friendly staff, very close to beach, many restaurants around.

                I booked this hotel at last minute, was impressed very much as soon we entered the hotel, the check-in was so quick, and we were served customized food for our lunch ( Indian food). The room was very clean, bed sheets towel etc were very clean.We enjoyed a relaxing evening walking in the beach which is very near (need to just cross the road). In short, a really good hotel for the money you pay.

                Good, peaceful stay”

                Clean and modern room, location close to beach, TV in room was luxury

                We booked this hotel for just 1 night as we were many times disappointed by Agoda and the reality but with this place we weren't disappointed so we decided to stay another 2 nights at the end of our holiday and just relax. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Its very nearby the beach and also 5 min walk to the crowded area for dinner. clean bed with tidy bed sheets, very nice rain shower and big bathroom. Ocean pearl was great for price also, would definitely recommend. Only negative point I have to mention is that their Visa-Card machine didn't work. So our last minutes were really stressful cause we had to take a tuktuk to the ATM machine to pay for the extra 2 nights and all this shortly before our international flights. This is not very professionel behavior cause the whole time I asked to pay the bill and the lady at reception always said no problem you can do later. Also they had an offer in the hotel for massage and we wanted to book for both us but with special requirements. The reception lady wanted to arrange everything and made an appointment. Unfortunately as we got to the place I realized this was another massage place cause double or even third of the prize in the hotel and I explained to the guy that this is over our limit. So better book your own massage. Anyway I would recommend this hotel.

                Even though this was only for a night, this was a good stay in a clean and modern environment. Most of the othe accommodation we stayed in was guesthouses which were comfortable and homely but lacked a few luxurys. Ocean pearl was great for price also, would definitely recommend. .

                It is a nice hotel with friendly staff. Can get view of the beach from the 2nd floor. The place is clean and things are very basic. Okay place for a night just before departure or on arrival. Should provide transport to airport. Then will be a hit with travellers.
