“Really like in paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2011

We had clean and spacy rooms, wonderful seaview from the privat balcony. Bathroom is not to large but okay and very clean. I appreciated the tea & coffee facilities we had in the room. So I could give me a coffein push when ever I want. Very friendly and helpful staff whereever in the hotel. Clean garden and especially the waiter for the pool was every day on top to clean it whenever it was not dity at all. If you have a question you can go to the reception they will help you. You forgot your converter for your notebook? No problem you will get one on the reception for free. If you want to keep in contact with your friends at home there is hot spot and if you have no notebook with you then there is internet facilities. The staff will be happy about a tip (tipbox), that´s all. We appreciate the food as well. The buffet for breakfast and dinner was various and even if you would like to taste some typical srilankan foods even spicy (sambols) you can get it because there are local guests too. The beach and sea is close by and even here all was clean. In low season you can be happy to experience a local wedding which sometimes take place in the hotel. It is really something special you can´t book in a tourist office. But no fear music will stopp at about 11pm.
If you really want to experience the local flair of Sri Lanka here you have the possibility. Thank you Mr and Mrs Croos and all the staff for the gracious stay.

Room Tip: Seaside rooms on the top are the best

This hotel is like a cross between the hotel from The Shining and Fawlty Towers. The staff are actively hostile, apart from one lovely lady at reception and the cleaners. The rooms are shabby, old and weird. The food is dire. It's expensive and generally crappy in every practical way. We stayed for 3 nights and then moved down the road to another, infinitely better hotel. Anywhere else in Negombo is better.

paradisebeach29, General Manager at Paradise Beach Hotel, responded to this review, 26 June 2011
We are really surprised about this review. After staying for 3 days with us she made no complaint to the Management. On departure she was very unhappy about the transfer from the Airport being charged. Her reservation was made direct to the Hotel via email. she was provided with a large family room for her & 2 kids. When settling the bills, she said that she did so via internet, but we do not have that facility in the Hotel. Her original booking was for 3 days from 10th June. Finally she settled the bills & left the Hotel on the 13th. Her next destination was stated as India in her own hand-writing on the registration card. We do not really understand that she had stated that she moved into another Hotel, when her next destination was India !

We were 5 of us which included 2 kids of 2.6 and 11.6 yrs and our goal was to ensure the kids enjoy and they DID. Had a wonderful experience at Paradise Beach Hotel. The hotel is beautifully located on the beach, rooms are nice and big, toilets are clean, staff is very friendly and helpful and the food is AWESOME. We had 2 meals there (lunch and dinner). Dinner space had a constraint as the venue was given away for a wedding (which did not bother us, infact we were enjoying our dinner along with the music and lively environment around us).Small suggestion however: What needs a bit of an attention is the bar, we ordered 2 mocktails and one was pretty sour so had to be remade. The barman needs a bit of a training if possible:-). If we have the opportunity YES we would love to come back and stay here once again. I would higly recommend this property for couples/ family especially family with kids:-).

Good and spacious rooms, toilet is a bit small but ok. Staff were quick and check in was done efficiently. Clean swimming pools. Air conditioner in the room could be a better. Food served at the resturant is good and has quite a bit of variety.

We arrived at Paradise Beach Hotel on the 19th of April, after a very long flight from Canada, we were greeted by a very nice receptionist, who took care of everything. In no time we were in our room and that was great.
The room had a nice view of the Beach. The room was large and had Tea & Coffee making facilities which is great for me as i like my tea in the Morning. A small fridge, comfortable bed important after a long flight.
Friendly staff, Paradise Beach Hotel is pretty close to the Airport, a great place to spend time before going on any tours, or just to relax.
We returned to Paradise Beach Hotel for a couple of nights before we left Sri Lanka.
Thank you Mr & Mrs Croos for a memorable stay at your Hotel.
