Hotel was nice, but is a bit run down for pricePosted Jul 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel is nice, but needs renovation. Rooms were dark (floors, wood work, lighting). Little lighting in bathroom and bedroom. Bathroom is nice, however, shower was clogged so water ran into our room 2 times (had to call maintenance, was full of hair). I would probably stay at hotel again, ONLY if I couldn't find something else better for the money. Alot of tourist shopping within walking distance of hotel, so no need to rent a cab for a quick bite to eat, tourist shopping, jewelry shopping, or to get a drink. Beach area is very nice and extremely relaxing. The grounds are amazing!

Close to the airport, on the beach.Posted Jun 11, 2013
Pros: Modern yet welcoming design.
Cons: Buffet was good, but pretty expensive for the area.
Location: Nice grounds and adjacent to the public beach
Good location on the beach. Modern, eco-friendly facilities and open floorplan. Communication challenges sometimes delayed service from the staff, but most things seemed to get taken care of.

Large resort hotelPosted May 9, 2013
Pros: Attentive staff, good pools and excellent breakfast and fine dining
Cons: hawkers,expensive for Sri Lanka
Location: lovely beach location and close to everything
Charming caring people. You must speak to the management if you are unduly harassed when relaxing on the hotel's private beach area. They will address this for you If booking on the internet check you are not paying in Indian Rupees rather than Sri Lankan rupees

High quality hotel with big rooms. Good servicePosted May 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
lovely big rooms with quality furnishings. Staff are very attentive and friendly. Great location close to the bars and restaurants about 3km from the center of Negumbo. Right on the beach. Nice pools and you can also use the facilities of the adjoining Jetwing Blue hotel. Its about 30 mins in a taxi from Colombo airport and 3 hours in a taxi to Kandy.

High quality beach hotel not far from the airport.Posted Apr 23, 2013
Pros: Local gin, local people and local to the airport.
Cons: Difficulty in venturing beyond the immediate locale.
Location: Take care, that Sri Lankan sun is hot. If if you don't normally or are used to sun, lotion up or you will burn like we did. A painful lesson.
The hotel is right on the beach and the facilities are great. Would suit families as well as couples and travellers. There are an ample number of swimming pools to cool down from the hot Sri Lanka sun, and plenty of palm trees for shade. The long pool in the centre of the lawn is of marathon length and perfect for fitness swimming as well as languishing! The A La Carte restaurant is splendid but I can't comment on the buffet as we didn't partake. Breakfast was passable, but not superb. There is another Jetwing Hotel next door as well as a strip of shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance. If you don't feel like walking, then lots of tuk tuks. 20 minutes from the airport, 40 minutes from Colombo and with miles of sandy beach and Indian Ocean there is plenty to do from this base. (Hotel cars are relatively expensive however, US$30 to/from airport and US$50 to Colombo.) Staff are friendly and helpful and, reassuringly, it is a hotel frequented by locals for weddings and relaxation.

Beautiful resort.Posted Oct 7, 2009
Fantastic location with beautiful ground leading directly to the beach. Perhaps the longest pool in the continent. Good food. There are plenty of things to do and the Spa is very well appointed. The Beach hotel is the ideal spot to overcome your jetleg or prepare for your trip back home and contemplate all the beauty of Sri Lanka you have seen.
