Pros: This place is really the best place we’ve ever been in Sri Lanka. The accomodation is well located and very near to the airport but it’s incredibly peaceful and guarantees a very good sleep as it’s very quiet. The accomodation is very clean and the beds are extremely comfortable! We booked a tour to Colombo with Alanka (the owner of the accomodation) he is a professional Tourleader and does an awesome job, we really enjoyed the tour and everyone should try it he does many different tours and gives you lots of suggestions! Even after the terrorism attack in April there is really no reason to be worried or scared, we stayed many days in Negombo and Colombo and had no fear and felt great. The whole family was lovely and let us feel amazing for the entire stay, they even gave us an upgrade to 2 lovely big rooms ( thank you very much for this Alanka :) The breakfast with Sri Lankan and European food and fresh juices was amazing!! You should book more then one night to fully enjoy this place. We will come back next year and enjoy this lovely family for another time :) Thank you for everything!!
Cons: Nothing!! Everything was perfect :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our hosts greeted us with a welcome glass of iced tea on arrival and showed us to our room. There were lots of jasmine plants on the terrace outside the room which smelled beautiful. The room was well-proportioned, clean and comfortable. The shower was honestly one of the best we had during our stay in Sri Lanka as it actually got hot and had good pressure! For a few dollars, our host's Mother cooked us a delicious traditional Sri Lankan meal which was super tasty. She even made hoppers especially for us! In the morning, we were provided with traditional Sri Lankan breakfast including some really tasty wood-fired bread and fresh watermelon juice. We took our host up on the offer of a car ride to the air port which he charged a reasonable price for. Our stay in Negombo was pleasant and peaceful thanks to our lovely host and his family.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was amazing. Large, comfortable and clean - even my girlfriend found nothing to complain about. The villa is located in a quite and nice neighbourhood. This implies that the villa is a bit further away from the main tourist area and the official negombo beach. However, a train station is very close by (15 min walking distance) and the owners are able to organize an airport pick-up/drop-of for a fair charge. Speaking of the owners: They are very nice people, extremly helpful and communicating in english was not a problem, in fact we had a couple of good conversations. We can totally recommend the breakfast as well as the tea. We definetly would stay there again.
Cons: No complaints at all.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hostess (Shamilla) was very kind and polite. A warm and friendly lady. She made us feel welcome. She gave us some tips about the do's & don'ts of the country. She was very honest. The room was quit nice and proper as was the whole establishment. Breakfast was extensive, freshly made with lots of fruit. The environment was peaceful. We had contact before we left from the airport. When we arrived, everything was arranged. Our driver from the shuttle was waiting for us and took us directly to Villa Taprobane. No negitiation about prices, cause the hostess had taken care of everything. We might come back here, before we go home. The stay is perfectly located from the airport.
Cons: The open bathroom was neat and clean. But at night insects (cockroaches) would fly in to have a look. As a West European that really shook me up. I was scared.. cause they were pretty bigsized. Fortunately the hostess was very alert and fixed the 'little problems' right away. They will put a net up to keep the bugs out in the future. You shouldn't stay away because of this minor issue, the country is so warm, it is normal you will encounter situations like this. The family running this homestay deserves a visit for they are decent people with a kind heart.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: All on all an amazing resort. Absolutely beautiful and super large rooms that reflects the unique architecture of Jeffery Bawa. Beds were comfy and a gorgeous and enoumous pool. Food was good and reasonably priced. I expected to be ripped off with resort level Western prices but they were moderate. Similar to most mainstream restaurants around Sri Lanka.
Cons: Three issues: mosquitoes, unusable beach, poor wifi coverage The rooms, restaurants were riddled with mosquitoes. They tried lemongrass oils to keep them away and electric repellant in the rooms which work but there needs to be stronger measures keep them away. The beach is pretty dirty and Rocky with no fun. We assumed kids would be playing on the sand and occasional dip in the sea but it's completely unusable. Plus stray dogs running around. It's not exactly a beachfront property as you have to leave the resort main area and cross the road. WiFi even in rooms were poor signal with several dead zones. Speed was below average

5.0 Okay
Pros: The room was nice and big. There was a cable tv (onlt a few Enghish channel though) and a refrigerator.
Cons: Even a staff seemed to clean the floor of the swimming pool but the water was very turbid, probably because of the unadiquate water treament causing the PH level lower than it should be. I didnot dare to swim. There was a kattle, which was good, but its most of the inner surface was peeled off, possibly causing some risk of dissemination of substance that covered the surface. I didnot dare to use. The breakfast was very simple and the coffee was an instant one. With the room price I paid i expected ftesh coffee. I was very diisappointed. Other B&B that I stayed during my 2 weeks trip cost only 1/3 of the price I Paid here but they provided a jar of fresh coffee. The location is good a few hundred metre to the main road. However, the small road directly from the hotel to the main road was mostly flooding. I need to take a 600m detour via another road. I don't know if it is flooding only during the rainy season . I visited in late October.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very comfortable room. Excellent bathroom. Easy walking distance everything I needed.
4.6 Okay
Pros: Good location in Negombo.
Cons: Room looks like from the 60s (definitely needs an update) and it smells very catastrophic. Unfortunately, staff wasn’t eager to help. Can’t recommend this place and don’t understand all the good ratings. I’d ensure there better value for money deals in Negombo.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is the best guesthouse by far I lived in. The hosts are super fabulous. The hostess is the most caring, incredible and amazing women I encountered on my journey. She has a pure heart of gold. Twice she brought me the most delicious lunch without me even asking. She did not even charge for the lunch. She is indeed a very generous person. Even breakfast is freshly prepared and the portions are very generous for the price you pay. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and spacious. Good furnishings. There is No damp and mould like the other properties. The beds are comfortable. The owners put a lot of thought and effort when designing the guesthouse. The design tells you the comfort of their guests are their number one priority. There is a spacious dining area, a kitchen, a scullery, the outside areas is very clean and comfortable with lovely seating spaces. It's a very beautiful guesthouse. They now have an onsite restaurant, serving food and drinks etc. Very thoughtful and considerate gesture. Guesthouses in the area that do not have this option of an onsite restaurant will see you walking 8km return to the nearest restaurant. After a long tiring trip nobody wants to go in search of food and water. Super fast internet and breakfast is included in the price. The hosts can organize transfers to and from the airport, which is fabulous for those arriving for the first time in the country. The airport is close to the guesthouse. The guesthouse offers tours which makes it extremely easy for the traveler. I also saw the owner put up a dart board. Overall my experience at this guesthouse was simply the best. There's a lot of privacy. Tea is offered on arrival. With such good hearted genuinely caring hosts it made my journey all the more memorable. Thank you, and I wish your guesthouse to grow from strength to strength always. This Is Where You Should Stay When You Arrive In Negombo.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our stay was just perfect. It was our last day arriving from Galle via Colombo to Negombo by train and then we took a Tuk Tuk to the hotel. I decided to stay at the hotel because it's close by to the airport, offers a free pick up and drop off and has good recommendations. We only stayed here during the day until midnight. Would always do it that way. I would highly recommend that place for 1-2 nights arriving at or departing from Sri Lanka. It's a small hotel with great rooms. We loved the super hot shower and the comfortable bed. The room looks super fancy and has all you could ask for. The pool is located behind the restaurant. Super cute and the best for relaxing after a long flight because there is no hussel. The pool is deep at the left side so all the recommendation on the narrow pool might not went all the way to the other side. :D We didn't eat in the restaurant but in the Italian restaurant "prego". The food is ridiculous awesome there. We tried the big brushetta, calzone and homemade gnocchi. It's not cheap but so worth it and just down the road. Close by there is also a supermarket.
Cons: Some parts of the pool floor are missing so make sure you don't hurt yourself. So not ideal with kids but it didn't bothered us too much.
7.5 Good
Pros: Room was great and good shower. Breakfast was amazing. Lots of choice and really well cooked.
Cons: Rooms quite noisy as all off the main walkway through the hotel. We booked this to chill by the pool but looked quite run down, majority of the deck chairs were broken. Pool surrounded by trees (I assume for privacy from neighbours) but means very little sun to sunbathe in. Would recommend as a place to stay but not a hotel to chill by the pool in.

Pros: Very kind guys We had two great days there!

Pros: The restaurant is very very good, and the hotel manager, Sunil Fernandinho, is excellent at his job. The whole flexibility of the team to deliver exactly what you want is not easy but Sunils team do exactly that.
Cons: Well, while room was very clean it was a bit claustrophobic as no windows. But, a great sleep in a lovely comfy bed.

3.0 Mediocre

Cons: Very poor service and poor maintenance. Food quality was not anywhere near the acceptable standard.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful rooms. Very scenic beach and pool.
Cons: There was a beach party and loud music that ended past midnight. We shared with the hotel that this was an issue but they said they couldn't do much because there are hotel guests. Suggest that the hotel maintain a good policy to reduce noise after 9pm.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: excellent treatments & food - just needs mediation to complete the cycle with the body
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Such a pleasure to enjoy truly committed management of a hotel. I didn’t realise the history behind the chain and the long term vision of sustainability and professionalism before I booked my stay, it feels natural, genuine and rock solid. This a real gem in Negombo and got me curious to stay longer at a Ayurveda resort
9.6 Excellent
Pros: This place is just phenomenal! And a bargain with the incredible 2 hour treatments from clearly knowledge, well trained, and friendly staff. They want to make sure you’re happy and made every effort to ensure that! I’m coming back! That’s the best recommendation I can give!
Cons: I would have enjoyed a more comfy bed with different pillows. Not that the bed was bad at all but that’s the single thing I can think of.
7.5 Good
Pros: We didn't know what to expect with the treatments but we loved it! Basically a 2hour full body massage - so really good value in that sense! The staff were pretty attentive. Room was spacious and comfortable. Love that the lunch goes on until 4pm (although we missed it for our treatments).
Cons: The airport drop off was pretty expensive - and at the hotel's advice we went earlier to the airport but don't think that we needed to really. The robes were quite small but we just asked for bigger ones and they were fine (although still tight!). We were a little rushed into our treatments like 5mins after being shown the room.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A serene paradise tucked away from bustling Negombo. Amazing setting, amazing facilities, amazing food and probably the best massage I’ve ever had.
Cons: Nothing, it was wonderful

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place is really the best place we’ve ever been in Sri Lanka. The accomodation is well located and very near to the airport but it’s incredibly peaceful and guarantees a very good sleep as it’s very quiet. The accomodation is very clean and the beds are extremely comfortable! We booked a tour to Colombo with Alanka (the owner of the accomodation) he is a professional Tourleader and does an awesome job, we really enjoyed the tour and everyone should try it he does many different tours and gives you lots of suggestions! Even after the terrorism attack in April there is really no reason to be worried or scared, we stayed many days in Negombo and Colombo and had no fear and felt great. The whole family was lovely and let us feel amazing for the entire stay, they even gave us an upgrade to 2 lovely big rooms ( thank you very much for this Alanka :) The breakfast with Sri Lankan and European food and fresh juices was amazing!! You should book more then one night to fully enjoy this place. We will come back next year and enjoy this lovely family for another time :) Thank you for everything!!
Cons: Nothing!! Everything was perfect :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our hosts greeted us with a welcome glass of iced tea on arrival and showed us to our room. There were lots of jasmine plants on the terrace outside the room which smelled beautiful. The room was well-proportioned, clean and comfortable. The shower was honestly one of the best we had during our stay in Sri Lanka as it actually got hot and had good pressure! For a few dollars, our host's Mother cooked us a delicious traditional Sri Lankan meal which was super tasty. She even made hoppers especially for us! In the morning, we were provided with traditional Sri Lankan breakfast including some really tasty wood-fired bread and fresh watermelon juice. We took our host up on the offer of a car ride to the air port which he charged a reasonable price for. Our stay in Negombo was pleasant and peaceful thanks to our lovely host and his family.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: All on all an amazing resort. Absolutely beautiful and super large rooms that reflects the unique architecture of Jeffery Bawa. Beds were comfy and a gorgeous and enoumous pool. Food was good and reasonably priced. I expected to be ripped off with resort level Western prices but they were moderate. Similar to most mainstream restaurants around Sri Lanka.
Cons: Three issues: mosquitoes, unusable beach, poor wifi coverage The rooms, restaurants were riddled with mosquitoes. They tried lemongrass oils to keep them away and electric repellant in the rooms which work but there needs to be stronger measures keep them away. The beach is pretty dirty and Rocky with no fun. We assumed kids would be playing on the sand and occasional dip in the sea but it's completely unusable. Plus stray dogs running around. It's not exactly a beachfront property as you have to leave the resort main area and cross the road. WiFi even in rooms were poor signal with several dead zones. Speed was below average

Pros: Brenda and Ron made us feel right at home and were very helpful every time we had a question! The guesthouse and grounds are beautiful, spotlessly clean. The rooms were very comfortable and had everything we needed and more. And the pool was lovely! A terrific option they have is a fridge upstairs in the common area to purchase a light snack or drink at our convenience. The guesthouse is ideally located within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. We both enjoyed a traditional English breakfast which was delicious. And Ron and Brenda kindly arranged a tuk tuk for some shopping and later transport to the airport. Highly recommend.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Brenda and Ron were fantastic hosts. Breakfast was fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, tomato plus toast with jam and juice Tea and coffee of course. The pool was small but clean and refreshing. Our room was like an apartment - upstairs with own balcony, honesty system on the well stocked fridge, tea/coffee all day, make it yourself. Bed was very comfortable and the AC and fan kept us cool. Spent a day at the beach at the Camelot hotel only 1000Rp for full access to pool, clean beach, bar service and spa.
Cons: Nothing - it was great

Would definitely go back.
Cons: Nothing

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The property itself was very nice although like a furnace in certain parts of the property as they did not use the fans air conditioning too cool the place ....and a real shame about the owners and that attitude as described previously.
Cons: Sarcastic comments from these English owners from the very first day and each day something was said that was upsetting during our entire stay at this place. Refused to offer our poor driver a complimentary courtesy drink after driving us all day long I'm getting us to the guest house in time before 8 p.m. ( this has always been a common courtesy in Sri Lanka... which these owners should be fully aware of after having spent 16 long years in Sri Lanka ! ) Daily comments made regarding the usage of the fan and the air conditioning and Lighting for the room for which we paid. Incorrect room description details given to booking.com... Made to feel very uneasy during our stay when it came to using the facilities that we paid for and they were too many restrictions and rules that we had to abide by... coffee making facilities were only available from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m. and sometimes not even this the kettle would be taken away ! Owners would become very annoyed if we stayed in our rooms all day using the lighting fan and air conditioning. Towels and bed linen were not Changed during our whole stay at this guesthouse house... but quick to complain about their guests (us)... Couldn't help thinking that they were also racialist no home judging by certain comments made and that they only preferred English / Europeans guests. I would like to add that I was rudely awakened and complained about using the fan , lighting and the air conditioning as we stayed in the room on my last day as to rest before a forthcoming flights and long onwards Journey... also need to mention my partner was not feeling very well so he slept most of the time in the room to get better quickly... this kind of thing was continuously mentioned throughout all stay. Another down fool would be that they only accepted cash payments and not card payments.
