I have picked the title of this review because I agree with almost every single point in the review that was written by Winifred G. My additional comment is that it is not in my opinion a 5* hotel, due to the small basic bathroom, no extra's like bathrobes and slippers etc. and the fact the dress standards are not...

This Hotel was recommended by friends of the owners. After a private tour of other parts of Sri Lanka this was to be an opportunity for a complete relaxation before returning to the UK’s February weather. It appeared that we were given a penthouse normally reserved for special guests of Tangerine Hotels (I think). I will try and be as...

We have just returned after spending a fantastic 12 nights staying at the Royal Palms Beach Hotel and we wanted to let others know all about our experience. We arrived in the early hours of the morning but the staff were ready for us and we were very quickly booked in and shown to our room so that we could...

We stayed here on a trip to Sri Lanka, after doing some tours. We had what was considered a sea view room, and it was, but all the rooms appear to be. The railway line is behind the hotel and sometimes it woke us in the night. Our room was on the 1st floor but it was damp. We didn't...

Once again I have to say the overall standard leaves very, very little, to be improved. The choice and quality of the food is excellant, staff very...

Good location, pool, ocean. Rooms are old, but nearly clean :) Good food in Cabana restaurant, especially seafood, but the service is very bad, they always forget the order and always late, anyway not bad for Sri Lanka.

Have just returned from 2 weeks holiday at the Royal Palms, what a great place. The journey from the airport took 2 hours plus, what an experience. I would suggest not arriving at rush hour in Columbo or using the new motorway which I am told will reduce the time taken. I would add that both I and my brother-in-law...

Just returned from 3 weeks at the Royal Palms and it was an absolute delight. After a 2 1/2 hour drive from the airport we were shown to a smelly musty ground floor room but after complaining about it we were moved to the top floor and everything was fine. The staff are lovely, very friendly and helpful, the pool...

Just returned from 3 weeks at the Royal palms 4th to 25th Dec, got an absolute bargain at short notice from Mercury. After landing at Colombo airport at 8.30 am, the trip to the resort is an absolute nightmare taking two an a half hours.
