We stayed 1 night as our return flight was early the next day. Our room did not have hot water, so the staff moved us to a different room. The poolside area is nice. The beach less so - there's a fair amount of rubbish on the beach.

Being a transit hotel, this place pleasantly surprised us. Hotel is actually beach facing, which we were not able to explore more due to very short duration of stay that too late in the night. Food is decent and very reasonably priced. They accept Indian rupees as well for payment.

Stayed at Catamaran as part of the transit hotel deal with Sri Lankan airways (I was stopping over in Colombo for 8 hours). The hotel is VERY basic, to the point where I think I would have preferred to stay at the airport or paid for the hotel in the airport itself. I was only hoping for a short sleep,...

We had a most wonderfull dinner at the Catamaran Beach Hotel restaurant. A variety of dishes was served with the fish and chicken curry. All very tastfull, healthy and good looking. The chef did a great job and the friendly waiter served us well. This was our last dinner in Sri Lanka, we could not have chosen a better place!
