We stopped here for our first night after a long haul flight ahead of our tour as it's close to the airport. Staff were very helpful and we got checked in early. Beautiful room (we got upgraded) with an outdoor bathroom.

The room we had was large and spotlessly clean; everything worked. The bathroom was even more surprisingly spacious and a wonderfully surprising luxury, outdoors although not overlooked. We were in room 125, up one floor. The food at breakfast and dinner, for two days, was very good. On one night I had the Sri Lankan chicken curry involving about 8...

Very nice hotel. Rooms are large with plenty of space, they have showers outside so you can enjoy the sky. Staff is very friendly and food is good. Plus bonus is they have Sri Lankas longest pool. Hotel it self is located outside of city center, so getting there will require tuk tuk ride, but this is costing nothing, hotel...

Lovely hotel, well maintained with very friendly staff throughout. Stayed here for 4 nights which (due to its quite location) was probably one night too long. The tuk tuk ride to Negoboa (beach) is 800 rupees each way (so not expensive) and takes about 10-15 minutes. The hotels quiet location means that there are no restaurants within walking distance -...

We stayed for two nights in this really nice hotel having landed at Columbo airport early evening. Needed a place to recuperate in prep for our tour of Sri Lanka and it provided this in spades. Really good hotel, big, comfortable room with a huge luxury bathroom. Staff really welcoming and friendly. Huge, clean swimming pool which allowed us to...

Takes 19 hours to get to Sri Lanka from the US, and this hotel is about 30 minutes from the airport. Rooms are big and very ell appointed, hotel grounds are lovely, and the restaurant serves great breakfasts (but service is very slow)

We stayed here at the beginning of our tour of Sri Lanka and were delighted with our very spacious room and outdoor bathroom. The highlight for us though was the wonderful 100m swimming pool which we really enjoyed at every opportunity. Across the road they have another pool at the beach with a quirky bar area which is also good...

I took my wife and a couple of friends for dinner at the blue lagoon having made a reservation. The staff at the restaurant did not seem to care at all and they were more interested in sending us away. At the time I was to pay the bill I specifically asked whether there was a card discount and I...
