We stayed at the Jetwing Sea on our last night in sri Lanka after an 8 day tour of the country. We didn't arrive until late afternoon so had missed lunch, but the staff were more than helpful and gave us in room dining whilst we unpacked which I thought was a lovely gesture. There was Tiger beer waiting in...

We turned up at the hotel after 12 hours of flying to find the hotel had not got our reservation ( even though we had confirmation) After numerous discussions and accusations of us having cancelled it , we were offered a room and for the hassle of the checking in experience , one of the reception staff arranged for us...

On arrival we were somewhat disappointed as the exterior of the hotel is not very impressive, but the welcome was nice as was a room which was lovely and big, with a super bathroom and mega sized bed. The view out of the room was fine, Negombo beach itself pretty dull and the sea far too rough for swimming. Beyond...

This is my 2nd visit to this Hotel. I was there for 5 nights with my family from Australia with a toddler. The accommodation, food and amenities were good. However, the large number of crows were a menace both in the beach area and in the restaurant. Better Wi-fi facilities would be good. Great to have two swimming pools and...

We stayed here for our final night in Sri Lanka which, basically, meant that we arrived late afternoon, sorted all our packing, had a meal, went to bed and then, thanks to the ongoing works at the airport, were up at 2.00 am to leave for our flight! Despite all that, I must recommend this hotel. Given that our experience...

Ended up at Jetwing Sea after a disaster hotel elsewhere. Thank goodness they took us at late notice after our tour group was booked elsewhere. Dihan on reception and Kasun and Samantha in the spa turned around what was going to be a disaster. They couldn't help us out enough. We were so upset about the end to a wonderful...

If it's the beach and relaxation you want, then this hotel is perfect for it. Everything from the rooms to dining area to reception overlooks the sea. In fact the property is right on the beach! We stayed in a deluxe room which was comfortable and had all the amenities. Our toddler was very happy too, and there weren't any...
