From the moment we arrived we loved this hotel. Checkin was quick and easy. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and professional. We toured Sri Lanka and stayed in many hotels and this was one of my favourite rooms. The bed was a proper king size (not just two beds pushed together) and was very comfortable! The bathroom...

After a long flight, we arrived in Sri Lanka and were taken to our accommodation in Negombo - Jetwing Sea. We arrived there around midnight and were greeted by very pleasant staff. We were given a very refreshing drink on arrival and were quickly shown to our room. The next morning was when we saw just how beautiful the place...

After a rough check in that seemed due to a lack of coordination between the Jetwing website and the hotel, we settled in and loved it. It's right on a very swimmable and un crowded beach that is wide and has a natural feeling. The pool bar and restaurant all blend nicely together and spill out on the beach. The...

Wonderful location on Negombo Beach (Just 150 metres from the Ocean). We stayed at the Jetwing Sea hotel for five nights and following a few minor issues at reception when checking in, which eventually got resolved satisfactorily, our stay was pleasant. The food was very good. In particular, one of the staff Indika Tennakoon was the star. When we were...

This was our first stop in our Sri Lanka tour. Even though we checked in late at night, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We got the rooms right next to the pool. The rooms are very big and the quality of sleep was excellent. The breakfast too was very nice with the sights and sounds of the beach...

This place is awesome to hang around with friends in fact the food was great at "The lellama" but still the desert spread should be improved with a better variety. We will be definitely visiting this place again as we really had a good time enjoying the buffet with our friends.

Definitely want to stay here again. My wife, her parents and I stayed a night (Jan 7, 2017) at Jetwing Sea and we all enjoyed this hotel for different reasons. My in-laws loved the chance to just walk to the beach (which our rooms faced) and watch fishermen at work. I really enjoyed the variety of food offered at the...

We stayed at this hotel on our last night in Sri Lanka before flying out. It's not cheap. It is located right on the beach with a main road running behind it, once inside one is not aware of the traffic. The bedrooms face the beach. The beach itself is not a tourist beach, It's a working Fishermans beach and...
