As a couple we spent the last few days of our trip in Sri Lanka here, and we very much enjoyed the place. Staff is super friendly and helpful, the food was delicious, and the new swimming pool really added a big plus to the place. It was very clean, the location is good, close to the beach (which is quiet but popular with locals) and to pigeon island (amazing snorkeling). We also rented a scooter at the hotel for a very fair price and did our own little safari tour to some lakes close by where we found an amazing diversity of wetland birds and butterflies. In short, whether you prefer nice food, chilling at the pool, beach, or nature: try this hotel!

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Crescent Sea Resort in August 2018. It was just what we needed after a tiring journey. We were travelling as a group of 30, and Crescent provided us with perfect place to stay, taking care of all our individual needs. The Hotel site is big enough so one doesn't feel crowded. The food was fresh and homely. The rooms and toilet were perfectly clean with every need thought of. It was close to the sea and trips to pigeon island (great for snorkelling)..

The rooms are large and clean, and the staff super helpful. The chef Ganesh was amazing and every meal was a Sri Lankan delight. The hotel is less than a 5 minute walk to the beach, and the beach is beautiful! All the locals from Trincomalee come here. They’re in the final stages of installing a swimming pool (hope to be open before end of December 2018) and this will make the property even more attractive. We highly recommend this hotel.

It was the low season so it was just the 4 of us at the resort. The rooms are lovely, spacious, clean and have great fast wifi. The staff are all so kind and attentive. The food was the biggest highlight. They have a new chef who is amazing. Every dinner and breakfast was different and decided every day based on what we wanted. We had some of our best meals in Sri Lanka, and the pricing was reasonable. When we were there they were just completing the new swimming pool, and it will be done by Christmas. This will be a big benefit for guests! Great stay, wonderful staff, amazing food!
