    Hi, Thank you very much for the detailed post. Your review and a few past reviews have helped me to plan my trip better. My family and I (6 adults and our 9 months old baby) are travelling to trincomalee for 3nights as a part of our family vacation. The cigarette smoke in the room alarmed me of the serious issues there can be in the ventilation / ac systems especially with having an infant with us. The other reason being I having a number of previous comments on cats, dogs and crows in the dining area/ restaurant raises serious concerns about hygiene and the level of attentiveness of the hotel management. ( This unhygenic environment can make some one ill and even cause serious health) I cant thank you enough for this review and I have clearly made up my mind on NOT TO STAY at this hotel. (the content on the reviews are stressing me already, imagine what it will be to face the scenario with a 9 month old baby) I think the hotel management is just copy pasting a general response and have not taken adequate time and effort to personally address the concerns raised in the feedback. The cats,dogs and the crows in the restaurant has been posted over a long period of times by multiple number of guests. This shows how badly this property is managed. Im affiliated with the presidents office and I will assure the relevant government authorities visit the premises and provide a detailed report. I will publish it on TripAdvisor for perusal of the future users. Thank you soo much and thank you all for the valuable feedback and TripAdvisor for having a platform that protects travelers from such situations. Many Thanks

    Trinco Blu have a problem with crows/ravens and have a guy with a catapult to keep them away. There are two cats that live in the dining area, but they are not wild nor pests. Never seen a cow in the hotel, nor a dog.

    Nope. You have to visit Pigeon Islannd for snorkelling. They provide packages for that. RATES: 2-3 Pax (2 pax minimum) - USD 60 per person 4 Pax & Above - USD 50 per person For more information visit their web site.
