Don't go there!

  • August 2014
Hotel was fully under construction. We booked via Agoda and could not find any hint. We haven't seen such a dirty beach. Don't go there even though the airport is not far away! We left without staying one night because we did not want to ruin our great impressions from our Sri Lanka trip. Anyway, we would not recommend Negombo since you do not get good value for your money. read hotel review

We booked this hotel as part of our trip. The transfer time from the airport took about 40 minutes. From the outside the hotel made a (the 3 stars relevant) good impression. Also the front desk staff were friendly. You told us, that our two double rooms were not available and we please have a little patience should. They provided us a room in the we could change and our bags were in a luggage storage. read hotel review

    The evening buffet was very well arranged, but for the size of the hotel in order. The breakfast was similar to. The coffee was in a class for itself, simply more inedible. With milk he took a gray paint on, a photo would be worth.

  • Sport & Leisure

    Animation or similar does not give it in this hotel. The pool has a temperature from an estimated 50° and was therefore not used. The beach chairs were dirty, broken and without cushions.

  • Room

    Our room 204 was an absolute insolence. Mold, mildew, mould. The shower curtain was black, the trifels covered in mold, the toilet flush broken, the towels were smelly and dirty. The smell in this room was a trial. For people with atemwegsproblemen can be a real risk.

  • Service

    The staff was friendly. German is not spoken, we but in Sri Lanka did not expect that. With english one comes through everywhere. The handling of complaints is extremely to be desired. In our room did not flush. After we the problem the front desk three times told and we but still ignored, we even helped. Technical skill is of advantage thus.

    The hotel is right on the beach. This could be used, but should strong nerves in your luggage. The beach vendors were extremely pushy and also understand only very reluctantly a no. Also on the beach are neither beach chairs nor umbrellas available. Holiday feeling - none. In the direct vicinity of the hotel there are numerous shops, bars, restaurant, etc.

Booked in march 2013 a room with a sea view. When i arrived i saw only between the palms a bit of sea. Reported this and got right on the next day without problems, that, as i wished. A calm hotel not crowded very relaxing, with a 28 degrees warm flat sloping ocean. Slashed me on, then jerk twitches the bellboy malcolm with a disinfectant on, the he was right in the room was, also i got directly all information about Sri Lanka from him. Highly i can travel agent right from the entrance of the hotel. Booked a 2 ... day trip to yala national park, the whale-watching in Mirissa, the turtel farm, and the famous stelzenfischer. Also the hotel staff Tuk-tuk driver Anton, a saintly patience had, Negombo vessel with all the churches, hindutempeln, buddhist temple. It was very nice. read hotel review

    Hotel in directly at the beach. The beach is public and therefore there is no chairs and sonnenschirmefür almost completely Sri Lanka. At the beach, common for almost completely Sri Lanka. Shopping possibilities, atm and restaurants in the immediate area. Good starting point for excursions.

    There's a restaurant and a bar. The number of, quality and quantity of the dishes is consistently good. Especially enjoyed the local cuisine like. Cleanliness in the restaurant and bar good. Prices for beverages are ok. (1 fl. Beer, 625 millilitre 375 Rupees). Tips are gladly taken, but not what we expected. But always something but very little was earned.

After a tour we here 9 days seaside holiday. The room was huge and in a used but very good condition. The food was good but unfortunately for our standards too european! We would have us more local dishes desired. But there are in walking distance very good restaurants the local food. Also a little bit of shopping is possible. Tuk tuk always wait directly in front of the hotel and 100 metres to the left, on the right hand side is a travel agent called cool tours, the permit all types of excursions. The pool is though relatively small ..., but the few guests it swam, adequate. The sea was great and one has place without limits. The partly pushy salesmen simply not consider! I during dinner there was live music every night, partially not at all bad. There is still a quaint seeräuberbar for the nightcap. Overall is however from 22 o'clock peace, so nothing for party makers. For someone who just want to relax exactly the right hotel. We found the value for money than good! read hotel review

We were very happy about this hotel. For a 3 star hotel great! The Paradise Beach is already an older hotel, but very clean. Maybe the hotel's atmosphere somewhat more consistent are, however, there was nothing to complain about. A very peaceful hotel, for families with children however rather unsuitable (no animation). We met many dutch, british and a few other germans in this hotel. Everything nice quiet people. We will book this hotel again! read hotel review

My wife and I used to stay in another hotel in Negombo but the rooms were renovated and the prices doubled so we moved to the Paradise Beach Hotel and have been happy there ever since. The hotel is very well situated, the prices are reasonable and the food is good. We book the same room each year, we know many of the staff and we know the management, which helps a lot in staying in a hotel. Familiarity with the hotel and its staff would be, for us, one of the main reasons we like staying there. read hotel review

The noise of the party we were allowed until midnight bear.
