Pigeon Island Beach Resort
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Nilaveli
Reviewed 4 October 2013

Was given a room on the upper floor close to the beach with partial view of the sea. The curtains on the front facing the pool needs to be better designed as current situation provides a view of the room in the night when the light is on.

Room Tip: Try and get the rooms closest to the beach for a view of the sea.

Good place to relax and enjoy the superb beach (although some loungers and sun umbrellas should be repaired). The restaurant and pool area are nice, the rooms are a bit blank in comparison though. Good middle class hotel with a top beach location!

We had nothing to complain about with this hotel. It's not super luxury but it's very nicely done and the staff were fantastic - quiet and unobtrusive, but very helpful.
The location was simply stunning, with a beautiful beach at the end of the garden - on which we were often the only people.
This is definitely a hotel for people who like peace and quiet away from the crowds. If you want a paradise beach all to yourself this is the place.

Room Tip: Only a couple of the rooms are sea facing - but the garden ones are lovely too.

We had a regular room and found it clean and comfortable. The air conditioning worked well, the satellite TV had several English channels to choose from, and the bed was comfortable and large. The free WiFi worked well in the dining area.

The grounds are well kept, which make all the difference in whether or not a hotel in the area has a good beach or not. This one does. In terms of the facility itself, the place isn't beautiful, but neither is it unappealing.

The dining options are limited to one restaurant, but it offers a choice of menu and buffet options, and we always found the food tasty and satisfying.

As for the gym, it's tiny and not well-appointed, but it at least offered me a way to keep in shape a little bit.

Each staff member we interacted with was pleasant and helpful. I'd recommend Pigeon Island Beach Resort.

We stayed 2 nights at this lovely medium size hotel and felt right at home. The staff were all lovely and made every effort to make our stay as good as possible.

We got a good deal on agoda which made it good value.

The food was excellent and the hotel is beach side with a lovely pool to relax in after. We visited the other hotels along the beach and the pigeon island resort was the best. The beach is certainly much nicer in front of this hotel than further down in the Nilaveli beach hotel which was significantly overpriced. We would recommend this hotel any day.

Pigeon Island would have to do quite a lot wrong for you not to enjoy your stay with such a beautiful beach! Luckily, they don't. We had a lovely stay, very attentive stuff and a good buffet breakfast with lots of selection. Great little pool bar too.
