Stayed 2 nights in April 2017
Secluded location ideal for a getaway
Pros: friendly staff, privacy and good service with decent room amenities Cons: entertainment facility could improve and amenities provided in rooms require an upgrade (I.e. Very old cupboards and chairs) Food options should increase as we faced a few issues where the portions were insufficient and th kitchen wasn't in a position to prepare more food. Overall the place is ideal for the group of people to relax and have a BBQ.

Beautiful small family owned hotel on the beach
Beautiful sunset
We only stayed one night to recoup from the long flight - it is a bit difficult to find north of Negombo, so a bit more far from the airport than we thought. But location is beautiful right on the beach. The rooms are nice however the balcony needs maintenance looked worn out. Very friendly staff and great dinner and breakfast. Perfect place to rest after a long flight.

The hotel with awesome landscape and sea view
Outdoor landscape, Sea view, Traditional Sri Lankan Food
The hotel is located in countryside. The front end is faced on a small river “Gini Oyea” and back end is faced on sea. The landscape is so awesome. This is a good place for paying a relaxed holiday. If you wish to taste traditional Sri Lankan rice and curry meals then you do not hesitate to book this hotel. The members of staff are friendly and helpful. The major drawbacks are mentioned that the beach is not private as noted in their web and also it has been filled garbage and dogs’ mob, and internet service is poor quality.

Perfect start for a perfect trip
Totally relaxing, nice stuff, really good swimmingpool for kids
The driver pickend is up from the airport.. After a 45 min drive he cruises around some cornes.. Then we arrived. Totally laid back, very calm! Really nice room and relaxed stuff in a good way. We travel a lot wird our Kids and Villa Sunbird was the perfect Start for us! Clean rooms, nice people, awesome pool for kids, really good food and a chilling armosphere at the veranda! Hang out at the veranda, watch the birds and get a feeling at the beach what Sri Lanka really looks like! If we come back to Sri Lanka, we will come back to Villa Sunbird! Thanks!

A nice quiet hotel
Privacy, nice location, good clean rooms
It is comprised of two separate units and has a total of six rooms. A quiet place with a nice view of the ocean. It is situated right next to the beach. The rooms are spacious and the staff is friendly. It is a good place for a quiet getaway for a few days.

Peaceful first night in Sri Lanka
Peaceful, good food, value for money
Overall a good budget choice. Water pressure needs to be improved. Difficult to find - make sure you have directions.

A lovely surprise
Tranquil location and great staff
I chose to stay at the Villa Sunbird on my last night in Sri Lanka. The staff were exceptionally accommodating, and pleasant to chat to. They were all really hospitable without being intrusive. The room was very comfortable with a lovely view of the ocean. The downstairs area is great for relaxing in and catching a sea breeze. Although the sea outside is quite choppy, I did go for a swim but would not recommend it for weak swimmers. The staff informed me they were building a swimming pool, which will be a wonderful addition to a truly lovely stay.

Right on the beach, great service. 12km from Negom
Great view of the sea. Good food. Good rooms and service.
If you're looking for as minimal interaction as possible with other tourists (which I was!), this is a great place. It's right on the beach and the other side faces a small canal/ lagoon (thankfully not smelly!). The rooms are great - there are 2 villas, each with 2-3 bedrooms and a large dining + living room and a sit out. The furniture is great - clearly period stuff and great to lounge in. The view from the 2 rooms on the first floor is super - open out the windows and you're looking at a vast expanse of sea! :) The beach is quite good - isnt white-sand or clear, but the fact that there's pretty much no one else around makes it awesome :) The staff - Dhammika, Dasanayake & another chap - are extremely hospitable and ever ready to help. They make great food - the prawns were the best we've ever had. Couldnt try the signature crab dish though for lack of availability of crab in the market the days we were there :( Found the food too spicy on the first day and from the next meal they'd managed to hit just the right level of spice! :) As some reviews mentioned, there is a fair amount of bird life near the canal/ backwater - we spotted 4 green bee-eaters sitting on the electric line the very first day and some white pigeons, but sadly no more birds since then (other than crows :D). Also spotted large (4-5ft long) water monitors in the canal on 2 separate occasions, though they didnt quite come onto the land :( Also spotted a Bengal monitor down the road. The place is about 12km from the heart of Negombo (about 8km from Jetwing Sea resort), but not too difficult to locate. Public buses ply very frequently (~every 10 mins or so) on this route (Negombo-Chilaw) and are a super cheap way to get to Negombo.. No swimming pool, gym etc and other trappings of a fancy hotel though :/ A touch expensive at ~15,000 LKR/night, but worth it!
