We had an overnight stay here, the staff were excellent and the room was massive. we had an early check out the next day, so we didn't get to enjoy all of the facilities. Great location!!!

The hotel owner is the most kind person ever I will not forget his helping during my stay, also the driver Mr. Mahish do not hesitate to choose him for your tour in Sri Lanka.

Do not eat the food of the streetside stalls unless you want to get very sick.Otherwise the city of Negombo/Colombo is very accommadating and its denizens are very poor but honest.

          Shabby & dirty property”
          Pros: Location ok. Most staff friendly & helpful. Cons: Hotel dated & run down. Not very clean. The hot food for breakfast buffet was limited in choice & always cold - except for freshly cooked eggs from grill. Swimming pool was a funny green colour & murky most days. This hotel is plagued by crows/rooks. It felt like we were in Hitchcock's film The Birds!! This hotel should be rated 2* not the 3* advertised.

          A great small hotel on the beach but!”
          Service, room and pool
          Hotel is a great find and its the second time I have stayed there but there is a but. There is a new hotel being built adjacent to the property and the banging goes on all day and sometimes into the night. More aggravating is they let the hotel out to private parties. On my final day it was a childrens pool party. The children and their families took over the pool area and surroundings which is not that large and the noise was horrendous. There is no other area to sit in so it was lump it or leave for the day. Hardly what you expect from your hotel stay.

          Quite Awful”
          Friendly staff & right on the beach
          I had to move out! Bed bugs! I was seriously bitten over 4 nights - I thought it was mosquitoes until I found a bug! The staff are really kind and friendly and the location is good if you want a beach holiday BUT like all the hotels in the Negombo area they are VERY expensive for what you get (thanks to the very high govt. taxes). Overall no value for money in Sri Lanka compared to, say, Thailand where you can have 4* for the same price and very nice properties. This hotel like the other 2 I've stayed at along the Negombo beach is run down & very basic. It feels like a cheap motel room in rural Australia. I moved out despite having booked & paid for 2 weeks.

          great staff, great location, clean and modern
          This was our 3rd stay in Negombo, but our 1st at the Rani beach - and we will definitely be returning. Danesh and his team could not have made us feel more welcome. The rooms were clean and modern, and the views across the Ocean were magnificent. The pool is like stepping into a warm bath and the sunbeds overlook the beach. The hotel is located just short walk away from the bars and restaurants of Negombo, and the town itself is a short tuk tuk ride. The buffet breakfast is varied enough to suit all tastes, and eggs are cooked to order. The main menu again has a variety of international dishes, all cooked to order. All the staff were friendly and easy to talk to, and withn a few hours of arriving knew our names and didn't forget them once during our stay! I would highly recommend this hotel, and can't wait to return in 2015.

          Enjoyable 3 days. Clean hotel overlooking a lonnnnnngggg clean beech. Friendly front desk. Close to bars, travel shops and restaurants. Good air con. Close (20 mins by taxi) to international airport. 5 min taxi ride to Kattuwa train station for the adventurous. Downsides. The few rooms that don't overloook the beech and pool overlook the road which is quite busy. Free wi-fi in reception is painfully slow and unreliable.

          Staff, Staff and the Staff!
          A first the hotel seemed a little on the budget side and the only thing that makes it feel this way is the lackof carpeting on room floor. After you get passed that feeling it then becomes an absolute service oriented hotel with staff rushing around and going out of their way to assist the customer beyond their means. Fantastic and enjoyable stay. recommend to all!

          it was walking dustance to resturants. the pool was so relaxing. And the rooms were big.
          I was expecting someplace in the middle of nowhere with a dive riom. But I was wrong. This is by far the best hotel Ive stayed at in Negombo. The only complaint would be the bed. Needs to update the mattress. It was hard and bumpy. I was on the 2nd floor. Which means you have to lug your baggage up. No elevators. I love this hotel..

The location near the beach allows you to have a walk on the sea from early morning until late evening. Sunsetting for free!
