Time your visit so you catch the Kite Festival – although they’re probably there all year round! Right on the sea – really nice staff – really nice balconies! Really interesting town - keep an eye open for the men that sell the hoppers from their tiny street stalls - yummy.

I booked for one night here so that I'm close to the airport. The place itself is attractive, it looks like it's recently been painted, a lot of rooms as far as i can see have their own balcony and AC and you are a short walk to the bottom of the garden to Negombo beach. However it is in... More

The room we had was clean. Also the bathroom. You can walk on the beach. Swimming is dangerous. But that's everywhere on Negombo. Very nice garden, friendly persons and taxiservice. I came here in 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2016. It always felt like home. Good restaurant. If you like prawns; take the prawnscocktail!

We stayed here on our first night after a long flight. We booked in advance and they organised our transfer from the airport which was slightly pricey. The room itself was clean enough although very basic and quite dark. We had breakfast the next morning which was ok but not special.

Stayed for 1 night. Pros: (1) Good location with easy access to the beach via a back exit. Front entrance is near restaurants, supermarkets etc. Large common balcony that offers good sunset views of the ocean. (2) Friendly service, open 24 hours, provides wake-up call. Decent charges for taxi to airport, even at unearthly hours. Cons: (1) Room is old... More

This was selected by the company that organised our van and driver tour of Sri Lanka and if I had a choice, I would have gone for others. However, the rooms were reasonably comfortable, considering that the whole hotel is in need of major repairs, to bring it up to a presentable level. I can't fault the staff who did... More

Silver sand hotel is a perfect location to consider if you like beach, sand and sun. It is located in Negombo, about 30 minutes away from the airport. The hotel is approximately 100 meters away from the beach. Hotel staff are so helpfull and friendly.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a good room. Nothing fancy, but clean and with a nice shower. It is situated in a big and spacious building, which could use some maintenance and redecoration. We only had breakfast here and it was as every average breakfast in Sri Lanka with eggs, toast and some juice. The wifi is... More

Great place to relax after a long flight. We spent the day by the beach and it was really good. It is simple and clean. Staff has been really nice. We had the room with a/c and see view. Get the land view if you want to save some money as the view is not much. But the heat was... More
