If you have spent many hours by air getting to Sri lanka, I would recommend this hotel as your first stop to get acclimatised and over any jet lag. Also could be useful if concerned about getting to the international airport from central Colombo in peak hours traffic as within 20-30 minutes of airport and minimal likelihood of a traffic snarl getting there. As a location, there is nothing in walking distance with only one worthwhile attraction nearby by car being the Negombo Fish Market. Over 1 hour to downtown Colombo. I would not recommend swimming at the nearby beach which is unmanned by lifesavers and looked treacherous. As a hotel, you will however have a comfortable stay. Be ready for the biggest swimming pool you are likely to see in a hotel at 100m long, certainly the biggest in Sri Lanka. Has spacious rooms with all amenities and quiet A/C and ceiling fan. Bed very comfortable and cleaning is spotless. Shower, bath and toilet all outside so can get a bit humid. Clear glass between shower area and toilet a but quirky if need privacy but otherwise ok. Felt food selection in restaurants not as good as other places we stayed but OK. All staff very pleasant. Has good spa treatment. Occasional aircraft flying over but never in volume or too annoying.
