The location of the hotel is nice with the sea and the lagoon. Huge property, well maintained, clean and enough space to hang around. Restaurant was also spacious and so were the rooms and teh bathrooms. The bathroom shower door was not closin/ opening fully and it made th bathroom all wet and muddy which was a hassle. Otherwise, everything...

Arrival to this hotel / resort was fantastic and as expected. Porters took luggage to room after a welcoming drink and a rapid check in. In my time here at club palm bay the experiance was memorable. The many staff amongst the resort from the cleaners to managers, waiters to chefs, bar staff to seniors, they are all very good...

First of all, there is nothing to complain on the location as it was perfect with the surrounding of the lagoon and the sight of the sea. Reception was fine and was thinking what a place this is. But when I entered into the pool area by passing the restaurant, My god...Noise all around the pool and hundreds of people...

Rooms, staff, food, pool all first rate. The pool is really big and not cold, so you can get in without a shock. there are ample beds, but if you want a parasol and poolside position, tip the pool boy 500 rupees a week, and Bob's your uncle. The rooms are large and comfortable, the beds are very large, and...

We selected the Club Palm Bay Hotel at least partly on the basis of the previous reviews on tripadvisor. Yes you always get some people who were very happy and some people who were very unhappy in their reviews but we have found that reading between the lines of several reviews tends to give a pretty good picture of how...

Having just returned from our 15th holiday at Club Palm Bay yes we are biased but only because in our many travels we have never found a hotel that we feel compelled to return to so often. Starting with the spacious bedrooms either lagoon or garden facing where you can sit and watch sunsets or sunrises . Opening the curtains...

We had a very relaxing two week stay here, the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. The hotel was just what we were looking for, quiet and relaxing. The food is good but not excellent. We had a couple of tours, one to Kandy and one to the south. You can use the hotel reps eg Saga or...
