9.0 Excellent
Pros: At first glance coming off a main road down a very narrow driveway you’d have thought ‘Where are we going?’ But trust me, once you go through the gates you have entered a small piece of paradise. Welcomed with cold towels and a lovely glass of mango juice you are left to take in the beautiful gardens which each room opens too. We simply couldn’t fault the people, the food or the rooms. Exactly what we needed after a long flight from the U.K. I personally slept like a baby! We only stayed here for one night so we headed out to the beach via Reggies Guest House and wandered along the beach for an hour or so watching the fisherman repair their nets for the next days sail. We returned for some food and although we had missed the scheduled time to let them know, they made an exception for us and cooked a beautiful curry for us. The portions were huge!!! Please do let them know before you should but we thanked them for going the extra mile for us. In a nutshell, a great place to retreat too or use as a mini base for Negombo. A tuk tuk for 2 from the hotel was 300LKR to Negombo train station and two 3rd class tickets from there to Colombo Fort was 100LKR. The train gets busier as you head into Colombo so be prepared to stand for some of it. In pounds though that’s about £2ish all in. A driver direct to Colombo is around 2500LKR or £11. Read less

Pros: If you stay in Negombo this is the place to be. The staff is great, we especially liked the doormen.
Cons: The location: it’s right on the beach which is nice, but Negombo beach is the dirtiest we saw in Sri Lanka. It’s impossible to walk without swarms of abrasive salesmen. Sewage drain off right into the sea.

Pros: Friendly staff and amazing view from the hotel room!

9.2 Excellent
Pros: We have stayed in this place for one night. Everything was not bad. But Negombo this place people if compare with other places not very good. I felt like they want to cheat you everywhere. For example: we came from airport for 1300, owner said that car from this place will cost 2000 to the airport. Finally I download pick me (good App, recommend) and catch a good car only for 800. Tuk Tuk was like a band, and you know when the car arrive to pick us, they came to the driver to make him trouble coz he came through software and charge cheep price. Be careful to come Negombo, the place for one night good in this guest house.

Cons: The bathroom was a little too small, and there was a leak from the shower cubicle, also there was no dustbin in the bathroom which made it difficult to dispose toilet paper.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The Location is in the heart of Negombo Beach, literally outside the main road that you have to cross to go to the beach, awesome
Cons: It was ok, nothing exceptional. But the Juice they serve in the breakfast is a joke, it is not a fresh juice but some conditioned product from the supermaket. It is a shame to serve this while they can get loads of lovely fresh fruit from the market

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great rooms, friendly and professional staff, great lagoon view, huge swimming pool, a lot of exotic birds, pond with fish. SPA is really good.
Cons: Even though it's near the sea, there is no real beach and you cannot swim neither in ocean, nor in the lagoon. If the hotel would clean up the beach and excavate the slope to make it possible to enter the ocean it would become an amazing 10-out-of-10 place.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Good food, location and big rooms.
Cons: The birds by the pool
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location of this property is just stunning, between the ocean and the lagoon. You have a choice to swim and sunbathe on the ocean side where there is a smaller pool. Note, beach is not a golden sand beach suitable for children. The main pool is a perfection, there are plenty of comfortable sun beds. We had treatments in the spa and there were heavenly and good value. Food, dinner and breakfast, was also very tasty and fresh and variety was great. I really enjoyed my time and wish I could stay there longer. Note, drive to the airport in the morning through town will take up to 45mins.
Cons: The pool bar was not really a bar, it is not stocked. If you ask for refreshments, staff will phone the restaurant to order and 20 mins later will deliver it to you. Actual pool bar in that lovely spot would be perfect. Chairs were uncomfortable, heavy metal and wood, not appropriate to sit for longer than few minutes.
1.0 Poor
Pros: The hotel staff is really bad. I booked a seaveiw room for my friends, however, they told my friends I have already canceled the booking when my friends arrived, after showing them all invidience the staff said they have given the seaview room to others, and arrange another very poor condition room to my friends at the same charges. the staff like cheating and lying and very bad service. pls Be carful when u dicided to stay there.

They anticipated our every need, nothing was too much trouble, always smiling, exceptional service. Great way to end a holiday.
Cons: It is tucked out of the way a bit which for us was fine. Much better value than hotels on the main beach and only maybe 15 mins in a tuk tuk from the main drag.

7.1 Good
Pros: The rooms were very comfortable and beds superb. Bathrooms were fine and shower very good. The breakfast was fine and all the staff helpful and kind. The pools and beach area are very attractive and clean.
Cons: The place just looks old and could do with an updated feel. I understand it is trying to retain its history but this needs to be improved. Too many hawkers trying to get you to buy stuff and hassling for your attention. The lunch menu in the poolside cafe/restaurant is very limited and uninteresting.

6.0 Good
Pros: Good food, very friendly and helpful personnel. Spacious rooms with a sea view.
Cons: Poor housekeeping, gang of traders at the beach, wild dogs wondering arround, crowns stealing the food fron the buffet. Furniture inside the rooms well made but poorly maintained. Spots and holes at the bed sheets. Personnel is nice but they just don't care. No currency exchange.
7.0 Good
Pros: The location was good on the beach but the pool was not inviting and needs rejuvenating. It is a bit tired and the rooms are not as cosy or charming as they could be with a bit of effort. The netting to keep pigeons away is understandable but is very messy compared with some hotels nearby which have their netting done in a way which is not so gloomy. It is near some lovely restaurants along the beachfront.
Cons: the pool did not look clean and sparkling like the ones next door! The netting to keep pigeons away is understandable but is very messy compared with some hotels nearby which have their netting done in a way which is not so gloomy.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast at Jetwing was lovely! A great selection and if you go - you must try the Egg Hoppers. The team of staff on breakfast each morning were lovely too.
Cons: The bar staff around the pool were a little slow at times. One day they kept the pool closed until well past nine... when it's meant to open at 8am. The coffee. However I think this is pretty much across the board in Sri Lanka. The tea however was lovely.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: We choise this hotel only for one day before departure. Airport is about 15 minuts by car, hotel reception arreage taxi. I think that will be great to spend in this hotel more time. Very nice pool, perfect also for small children. Perfect cousine and restaurant.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: My husband and I were joined by my daughter ( who flew in from Singapore) and spent 3 nights at Jetwing Blue. We shared a room with my daughter It was our second visit to this hotel as we were here in 2016. It is on the beach and has a lovely swimming pool surrounded by palm trees. The dining room is large and a bit impersonal but the food was good and plentiful. The corridors are long and characterless ~ I’d recommend a room on the ground floor overlooking the pool The staff were friendly enough but I feel the hotel is expensive It’s surrounded by nice restaurants and shops but it’s worth getting a tuk tuk into Negombo itself as it’s less touristy. As it’s west facing you can experience wonderful sunsets. The bedroom was large and comfortable and the bathroom adequate but a bit in need of maintenance on the tiles
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely place to stay, great staff and everything was perfect. Love it!!!!
5.0 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was good, bed was comfortable. Aircon was quiet and effective.
Cons: This is an expensive hotel (£160+ per night b&b). It’s also quite old and the age is really showing. Each room in the hotel needs to be refurbished and soundproofed from outside noise. I don’t think we will return here as there are better value hotels nearby.

5.0 Okay
Pros: The rooms wer spacious and really clean. The staff did a really good job with cleaning, being helpful and always really friendly. The pool has been cleaned every day. The food was really tasty and well presented.
Cons: The surroundings of the hotel, including the busy street just in front of the hotel were really noisy. While booking an ayurvedic treatment we expected to have some silence. At night it was also really loud, because of a generator from the hotel the next door and maybe a church which is really close. The consultations with the doctors were really short, even though guests do see the doctors every day. Furthermore we were really disappointed about the yoga classes, which didnt take place in the yoga hall, because there was a travel group. Furthermore there was a lack of instruction during the class.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The rooms are comfortable and nice bed linen and mosquito net. I think all rooms have AC. English plug sockets. We enjoyed our time with the Ayurverdic doctor who established both my husband and I had the same Dosha type. We then had our massage treatment as prescribed by the doc. Two hours of absolute heaven. Meals are given based on Dosha type and were delicious. The staff are incredibly Courteous and friendly. It was lovely to see the manager too who came on more than one occasion to say hello and check everything was ok whilst we had our meal. The swimming pool is relaxing. We also did yoga at 630 in the morning. The hotel also discourage use of plastics and provide filtered water and glass or metal bottles to refill. Had to include some photos of the food so apologies there not in the right category! Also the hotel was tastefully decorated for Xmas. Super place would def recommend the experience.
Cons: Honestly couldn’t think of anything . But do have a suggestion. It would be nice to perhaps have some talks about diet, recipes perhaps a cookery class and meditation in the afternoon. It’s a very different way of eating and cooking and there’s lots of conflicting information out there. Also recipe cards to take home . Just an idea :)
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Treatments were great.
Cons: Location has become poor as the noise from the main road has reached crazy levels with all the development. Duff Duff music until midnight. Early morning yoga was very disappointing.
6.7 Good
Pros: It is perfect for a one day treatment.
Cons: They offer only 1h of yoga from 6h30-7h30 which made us rush to eat breakfast and be ready for our 8h00 appointment with the doctors. We would have appreciated a more proper and relaxing place for the lessons and to do meditation because yoga hall was exclusive to a group. Overall, we found that not enough activities were offered. We would have appreciated seeing the treatment options. Of note, we asked for Shoridoya treatment (oil dripping on the head) and it wasn’t available for three day stays. We would have liked the opportunity to stay longer (and even go whenever we want) in the steam bath. Our room was fine but AC would be appreciated for the price (only some rooms have AC and were already booked). Food was amazing even if the portions were small.
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

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.

Cons: Nothing to not like
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Gomez & his well trained staff make you feel at home. The hotel itself is in a great location to the beach, restaurants and bars. Great entertaining areas within the hotel to mix with many lovely hotel guests who keep returning including myself. Rooms are a great size with large bathrooms. I was well looked, late check out is available depending on guests arrival. Was able to stay by the pool the whole day for an early morning flight. Lovely breakfast. Definitely recommend
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were exceptional extremely superb service. Public areas kept immaculate has was my accomodation . The breakfast was very substantial and always served in a friendly and ifficient manner.
4.0 Okay
Pros: The room was big and nice, with flat tv, a/c and fan, big fridge, kettle, hair dryer, full set of amenities, hot water (a bit confusing at first how to turn on), a nice terrace with chairs and table. (I got a room with pool view). However, the kettle was very very old. The inner surface mostly peeled off which could be toxic for use so I didnot dare to use. Body gel, shampoo and conditioner looked not so nice both the containers and the contents but acceptable.
Cons: The worst was the swimming pool which looked very nice but the water was very very mucky. They seemed to clean the pool regularly (I saw while I was staying) but may be because of an inappropriate treatment making the PH level too high. I didnot dare to swim there. The breakfast was very simple. 3 thin slides of bread, some fruits and eggs. What disappointed most was the coffee which was an instant one. I stayed in many small, much much cheaper B&B in other cities and towns during the trip where they provided fresh coffee. Orange juice here is also a packed one, not freshly squeezed like other places I stayed. I asked for a tuk-tuk to the airport, The price was double of the tuk tuk I asked on the street. But after I told that I found cheaper on the street, they arranged one with the same price. They do need to be more attentive and consider some small issues to improve the quality of falilities, not only just for its looks.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Ideal location in a quiet little street just off the heart of Negombo beach. With 18 rooms there are always people to chat to at the hotel and the staff are very friendly. Nice pool and gardens. We had a larger than average room which was nice and bright.
Cons: As with most places in Negombo the mosquitos were bad. They bite in the morning evening and the occasional one will bite in the day too. So be prepared with mosquito repellent. The citronella spray on its own is not enough. We used Trek sensitive which worked well.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was clean tidy and spacious and the house keeping was excellent. The pool areas were well kept and the staff were always on hand to set up sun beds with clean towels, very cheerful and happy staff. Excellent bar snacks sometimes took a little time but worth the wait.
Cons: I find it difficult to make find anything that we did not like. Only criticism would be in the early evening the beer was not always cold I guess if the bar was busy in the afternoon the staff did not have time to restock as the day went on.

7.0 Good
Pros: We only stayed there one night before heading home. The room and bathroom was nice - and the sunset on the beach in front of the hotel was stunning.
Cons: The hotel seemed a bit dated, and the area surroundting the hotel was extremely touristy - but that was to be expected.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location, staff and support from the restaurant management especially when there is a kid around. Overall satisfied and supportive.
Cons: Pictures are over shined a bit. Felt a but overpriced. Probably because of the season.
3.3 Mediocre
Cons: We stayed here for the last 4 nights of our holiday. We wanted somewhere we could relax and enjoy the beauty of Sri Lanka’s great food and people. However, there are a few key points that definitely need to be improved and auctioned ASAP so other guests don’t undergo the same experience we had. The Rooms We had to change rooms because our first had many bugs, mainly flies and mozzies in the room on arrival. We also had 100s of flying ants outside our door due to the light attracting them outside in the open hallway. Cleanliness of Hotel and Rooms It didn’t seem cared for. The bathrooms had cracked sinks, the flooring was dirty and like I said previously, the rooms had many bugs in. We ordered room service one night and the next day, we put our tray in the hallway for pickup. No one picked up the tray until the following evening, even after seeing the cleaning staff move up and down, past the tray that day! The Staff They didn’t seem to give a sh*t to be honest. They were there to do their shift and go home. Only 2 members of restaurant staff were kind and not overly attentive during our stay. The day before we left, a member of staff came over with an activities booklet to show us what we could do in Negombo, but why would you show this on the last full day before we checkout?! Food The food was pretty shocking. My boyfriend ordered the Roti and Dahl, and the first time it was dry, as if it was the leftovers from breakfast/bottom of the pan, and then the next time it was alright (better than before!). Sadly we became vegetarian after seeing certain foods come out because we didn’t want to risk getting a dodgy stomach. Room Service On the inroom dining menu, there is a Pea and Cashew curry that is accompanied with rice, popadoms, sambol and mango chutney, named as the Vegetarian Dish. We ordered this curry, but when it arrived, we just got the curry.
7.0 Good
Pros: Close to airport resturant and bedrooms very close to beach
Cons: wrong room given when first arrived not suitable for guests paying £50 per night a room not even fully painted
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Amazing to arrive on Sri Lanka and get straight to the ocean. Lovely spot on the beach but just one night so not sure how well it was located in negombo. Ate at the fish restaurant which was good and the waiter Anton was fantastic. Breakfast was nice too and they brought my husband a lovely birthday cake too! Staff were all very friendly. Our room had the most amazing view of the ocean which was beautiful to wake up to. We also used their driver Anthony to take us to sigiriya and he was very kind and informative, would absolutely recommend him!!
Cons: There was a VERY loud party a couple of doors away until late, so it sounded like we were sleeping next to a bar. Think they were eventually asked to turn it down though.
7.5 Good
Pros: Great massage at the hotel’s spa. Nice spacious room although a bit dated and in need of a more in depth cleaning e.g. the blinds, the vanity mirror etc. Good pool.
Cons: The manicure/pedicure at the hotel’s spa felt like an afterthought. It was very rudimentary, no nail polish and the results demand an urgent manicure/pedicure. :) Only the price 6000Rs was not a joke.

6.0 Good
Pros: The bed are so comfortable and pillow also and the staff is very helpful special mr ruchintha he is great guy.

7.0 Good
Pros: Bed was clean and comfy. Good location to airport. 300 rupiah by tucktuck to the closest airport location. Then there is a free bus for 2 minutes. Easy and fast! Go to eat at Luckies to the right.
Cons: Floor outside (between dorm and bathroom) is from wood and extremely broken and not fixed. Dangerous to fall down or get injured. Bathrooms and toilets were dirty. They were painting fences and walls outside, smell was horrible. Aircon next to my bed was incredibly loud. Outside the hostel is really nothing.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very close to the airport, good bunk beds and A/C in the room, nice to start or end your travels here, especially when you arrive or leave at night!

3.0 Mediocre
Pros: The location is quiet near to airport
Cons: The bathroom was painted while we are staying and the smell is too strong. The bathroom is not clean and very rusty otherwise. The bed is not clean. The bed room door is not working properly and is very old.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very close to the airport only 15 minutes drive if that. Good breakfast of eggs and toast. The staff were helpful with advice to get to either Colombo or negombo. There isn’t much to do in the area so best to stay only a night before or after a flight.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: First the welcome at the airport by the taxi driver was very nice. The taxi man was helpful as we had surf boards. We arrived at the hotel late (around 2am) but Sana was here waiting for us with a huge smile very welcoming ! He took the time to explain everything to us even if we were only staying one night, to make sure we have the best stay. We highly recommend this place, the rooms are confortables with AC and the breakfast is also nice and tasty. We will come back for sure!
7.9 Good
Pros: We needed a flexible and comfortable accomodation for our short stay, after our flight has arrived in the middle of the night. Hostel First was an absolutely ideal choose!
5.4 Okay
Pros: AC in the dorm room was great. Centrally located and not a far ride from the airport.
Cons: Pictures don’t represent current state of dorm room, which can use some sprucing up. Lock on locker was very flimsy. Bed was comfortable however the top bunk is very high up for a bunk. May not be the most appealing to solo female travellers.
