Bravo to the team at Jetwing Beach hotel in Negombo. After what started out as a horrible holiday, the staff at the front desk and restaurants rescued my family's vacation.
-Great Location - right on the beach
-Guest Rooms are a good size
-Nice bathrooms with a great shower & tub (both are HUGE)
-Variety of food served during dinner at the Sands, the main restaurant.
-We requested airport transfer service, and no one from the hotel showed up. Luckily, they were able to resolve this (after 30 min of waiting)
-Beach restaurant has a limited menu for lunch/dinner.
-there are no interconnecting rooms, for those of us who travel with younger children
-STRAY ANIMALS EVERYWHERE. Dogs & cats.
Despite the negative, if given an opportunity, I would go back and stay at Jetwing Beach. The staff was so friendly, and the service was so great that it overshadowed the negatives. Plus the Deluxe Room (booked directly on their site) was $200, was facing the beach, had a great view, and literally was a few STEPS to the pool.More
