Stayed here the first night of a tour and was glad it was only one night. Very tired hotel in need of an upgrade, saving point was the friendly helpful staff who go out of their way to be of assistance, checking a few rooms until one could be found with all essentials (air con, toilet) working as needed. Breakfast...

Do NOT book this hotel unless you are desperate, and have a masochistic desire to endure: filthy rooms; air conditioning that does not work in heat of 35degrees plus; no water from the taps or cold water only; and sheets, pillowcases and towels that are stained, and worn thin and grey. Complaints may get you moved to another room that...

Staff were mostly friendly but room was dated and hot water was just warm. Poor television reception, poor wireless internet and phone didn't work. "Clean" sheet was dirty - room attendant reported things are always like this - phones not work, television didn't work, dirty sheets, no phone etc

Stayed here for 2 nights, in different rooms, before i started a tour. The first room i was in was extremely noisy. The airconditioner didn't work and the bathroom door didnt open properly. The second room was much better. The pool was nice and having direct beach access was wonderful.

The rooms are perfectly located as they look out onto the pool and bar area where you will be able enjoy amazing sunsets on the balcony. The buffet for breakfast has...

What an awesome place to relax. Love the Pool Bar area.... Food was out of the world. Service is excellent. My kids love the Fresh Pizza served at the hotel. Will be visiting the Golden Star Beach Hotel soon.

A beach front hotel with good sized pool are its main attraction and sole good points. Reception area is well furnished and gives the appearance of a grand hotel. The room we were allocated #40 was a long way from reception at the back of the hotel. The room has no windows, and an air conditioner that doesn’t cool. The...

What everyone else said is true. The staff is very kind, but whoever owns this hotel pays no attention to updating or maintaining it. The place is dirty and the ocean and beach isn't worth the price. Travelers, there are better deals in nicer places with pools off the beach. I would recommend that hotels take collective action to keep...

Stayed only for a few hours at night while on a transit in sri lanka. Had a buffet dinner which was pretty decent. The room was very nice with good options in lighting and the bathroom was very clean and quite luxurious. The best part is that you could walk to the beach from your room! The property is about...
