Rani Beach Resort
Ranked #31 of 43 Hotels in Negombo
Reviewed 5 July 2013

We again stayed at the Rani Beach Hotel and were upgraded to the Suite room with a
beautiful view of the beach. The staff welcomed us with a cool welcome drink.
Dinner was in buffet style and tasty. When booking this hotel we suggest to ask for a suite room which costs only a little more than the standard room and also we recommend to insist
on having a seaview room. Some rooms do not have this view and should be avoided.

Very clean and comfortable hotel with nice pool overlooking the beach and ok breakfast buffet. Not the cheapest option but perfect as soft entry to Sri Lanka or final relax before home.

Most dirtiest hotel, ever !!!Got up in the morning,stepped into the balcony to look at dawn, slipped,and Fell in the balcony due to muddy conditions on the cement surface, not cleaned. Management did not take any action to compensate me, even though it was their responsibility to keep a a clean room.and balcony.Had to pay out of my pocket USD 100 for the Hotel's doctor who did nothing. Warning most rude Management ever, do not know how to be courteous to hotel guests. try any nearby hotel other than this you will stay alive and happy.

Room Tip: save your life and money, go to another hotel in Lewis ave, Negombo, like Brown's beach.

Our last two nights in S.L were spent here as part of the package organised for us by the Sri Gemenu Hotel. The initial impression was good enough and one of the girls at reception spoke reasonable English. Unfortunately our room on the first floor looked directly out to a semi finished building that virtually blocked the view to the pool and beach. ( see photo) . The 3 storey building dose not have a lift.

The room was spacious and clean with Tv but no internet so down to the restaurant with the laptop. The pool was clean with foam mattresses on the deck chairs next to the pool and some under trees which we made use of.
Our second disappointment came when we went down for dinner. A limited menu was presented to us ( 2 main options) but we noticed some other patrons had a more detailed menu. We realized then that the hotel/ meal price that we had paid for must be in the economy class!

Breakfast was OK as was lunch- about $USD 16.00 for two of us including a beer.
Overall its a pleasant enough place but check where your room is and what the dinner options are, cost wise. We witnessed a great sunset ( see photo ) but then any of the hotels along the coast had the same

Room Tip: Choose a room on the left side of the entrance and as close to the sea as possible to get the best...

I nearly didn't stay here as the reviews were awful. I think the hotel has had a makeover. Rooms were clean and spacious and the staff were so helpful. The pool was clean and the beach was adjacent. The sand was coarse but was no problem and it was great to watch the local fisherman at work. The evening meal wasn't good value as the choice was limited but there are loads of super restaurants on the same street where you can get a meal for £5. I ate giant prawns most nights! I atayed 4 nights and on one evening there was a locl birthday party at the hoteel. it was noisy with loud music but it finished by 11pm so it wasn't a problem. I woud stay there again.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the beach are great for viewing sunsets

We stayed in hotel for our last 3 nights in Sri Lanka. We treveled with young child, and stayed in spacious room with sea view. The room is basicly furnished, clean, with nice view over the pool and ocean.
The breakfast bufet have a large selection of food, which wasnt very tasty, except the omlet and sausage.
The pool is good, our child had a really great time there.
The stuff is nice.
At night there are mosquitos, so bring the repelent.
The hotel is nice for a night or two. for longer stay chouse something different.

Room Tip: Ocean view
