We booked a room for a price very much lower than the standard rates we see for other nights so it was value for money. The rooms are huge, they include a kitchen, living room, 2 balconies and everything 4 star hotels provide such as toiletries etc. Also big bonus - 2 aircons in the flat!
However, when you are in the apartment you don't always feel like you are in a 4-star hotel - the experience is more like apart-hotels. The beach outside the hotel is yukky and not preserved at all - all in all, you cannot swim there.
The breakfast was good but it was very similar to what we got in guesthouses around Sri Lanka, so it's not really at a 4 star hotel level.
The swimming pool area is nice but quite small, so I imagine when the hotel is full it must be quite restrictive.
Finally, although other hotels in Negombo provide free airport shuttle, this one asked us for $20 for a 15 minute drive to the airport! This is utterly ridiculous as we ended up paying 500 rupees ($3) for an Uber!
The rooftop bar is supposed to be really good but unfortunately it was rainy during our stay so we didn't go.More
