Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This hotel is in a good location with direct access to the beach. The pool is lovely and clean and we had lunch poolside. The grilled steak melt was good value for money for lunch. We had breakfast and evening meal included and there was a large function on the evening which included beautiful dancers which was a highlight. As such most the buffet meal was more catering for locals than western diet. Arrived on a holiday so there were quite a few local stores closed so other food options were limited. All said and done this is a value for money hotel with good staff who are friendly and very helpful and could recommend this to travellers wanting to stay in this area

First the god things. The location and the hotel surrounds are just great. You an walk to a number of local restauants and shops with no trouble at all. Reception is very impressive with an open style leading onto the pool and longue area. Staff are frinedly and courteous and the bar area is good. When we were there, a number of travel groups arrived and departed so they seem to have a good market cornered there. Unfortunately now onto the bad. While our room was spacious with a balcony there were issues with cleanliness, particularly with the bathroom and balcony. There appeared to be an ongoing issue with plumbing meaning the room smelt and ther was some mould on the tiles. To be fair to management, as we were only staying in the room overnight with a very early start, we did not complain or bring it to their attention, however, the problem with the bathroom was obviously not a new one. It is quite reasonably priced (about 11000 rupees fora night) but I don't think that menas you need to put up with a not so clean room.

We stayed at this hotel our first night in Sri Lanka due to the hotel’s proximity to the airport. All rooms face the beach. Rooms could use more electrical outlets and a new coat of paint. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast buffet had numerous options.

My stay was booked by a tour company who should have known better as my stay was a big anticlimax to an otherwise great visit to Sri Lanka, I can only agree with others comments that the whole property was tired and poorly maintained, Thank goodness I was only staying one night before an early flight home.
There are plenty of other hotels in the area and actually when I walked up and down the street, there were some great bars and restaurants to choose from.
This place needs some major care and attention but until it gets it or treatment with a wrecking ball I suggest avoiding it.

Nice location bordering the beach and only a short walk from some great restaurants. The hotel and room itself is a bit tired and could use a bit of work but it does offer everything you need. Friendly staff and nice pool.

Great location all the staff are great. Need a bit of a tidy up but well worth a visit. It's not far from the main town and it's easy to get around by tuk tuk, the only down side with the tuck ticks is the drivers are always trying to sell you trips.The beach is lovely and the sea is warm

Room was shabby, bathroom floor not cleaned, didn’t want to use the shower, views from balcony of poorly maintained hotel.

Breakfast limited.

Beach filthy, broken glass, rubbish and discarded plastic/glass bottles, hawkers and rubbish burning...

Tired and old

Hotel and staff great. Owner gave all of us a cocktail because a large outside party was on. Much appreciated. Very good position on beach and many restaurants around. Breakfast very good as well as bar. No downstair rooms but does have elevator. Shower in room tiny, so rooms need updating. Good value for a mid range hotel. Highly recommend it unless you are wanting premium accommodation

This is a 3* hotel, the A/C struggled and was noisy. The pool was fine and the food good. Shopping is handy and the prices are good if you bargain. I spoke with others who were staying for a week and they and I felt any longer than two nights in Negombo is a waste. The fish market is a bit of an eye opener to those not expecting to see such a primal place but worth the experience if you are not too squeemish.

I would say so as the hotel is used by a lot of travel agents. We booked through our travel agent and they arranged the airport pick up and drop off.
