Colombo is becoming like any other developed cities in the world. More and more hotels been built. Marino Beach is another city hotel. Thats where i was wrong! It's not just another city hotel. Far from that. While other hotels (5 stars) busy catering to the market which demands buffets, bars, coffee shops, Day outings. Marino Beach does more than that... It is your getaway in the City. Yes it full fills all the above as they have 6 Dining options (restaurants and bars) which is open for visitors except "Garden Bar" There are many things to keep you busy not only if you are visiting the hotel but if you are an in house guest as well. 9D cinema, Marino Mall, VR Center, Spa. I had not expected Marino Beach to be my City getaway but they all delighted me and surprised me. Staff Well trained to be attentive, friendly and professional. Most importantly they know how to safe guard the privacy of the guests as well. Even though they were operating with less staff(obviously due to COVID-19) nothing was out of place or had any hiccups. Staff were wearing masks all the time. I have not seen a single person pulling down the mask and talking even to another staff member. Thumbs up for the management and staff. Food We do not like Buffet and during our stay except Breakfast all the other times we used in room dining. I was seriously impressed with the food. Very tasty and delivered as promised. (some forget to mention the ingredients used and they think its ok to replace without mentioning the guests) We do not eat pork or beef so it was so relief to see they paid attention to detail and mention these. Very generous portions which were too much for us but i am sure it will be appreciated by many. Suggestion: I think there is room for improvement when it comes to desserts . I want the Rose Lounge to become THE place for cakes and desserts. Rooms Rooms are spacious specially for a City hotel. They have paid so much attention to detail. Little bit of small things have made our stay so wonderful. Having a speaker in the bathroom and having the glass panel. Brilliant.. you can watch the TV while soaking in the bath tub!! Separating the shower and the toilet. Fantastic! Placing the shower drain at the shower entrance. what a good way to stop flooding the bath room and make it more safe. Less room for accidents such as slipping. Amenities They have provided everything you need. Iron and iron board, hair drier, Shoe mittens, Toiletries, Bath robes, Slippers, towels, mini bar, tea & coffee making facility and plenty of space for storage. Shoe rack which can be pulled, what a simple thing but excellent. One touch Brilliant idea! Above all what makes me want to come back again and why Marino Beach became my city getaway is that they safe guard the privacy of the in house guests. Roof top bar, garden and the infinity pool is only accessed to in house guests. Thank you So much and please DO NOT change this. Unlike any other hotel in Colombo where they allow visitors to roam around pool area Marino Beach have allowed only the in house guests. The two entrances can ONLY be accessed with your room key cards. The way its built you can hardly think you are in the city and you can actually relax with the services they provide. Steam rooms (2), Jacuzzi (3) baby pool and the infinity pool, garden bar and the garden.. just make you feel, you are in a resort. Visit and stay at Marino Beach and I am sure this place will be your city getaway to relax! See you soon…
I organized our family waleema function on 13th March 2021 at Grand ball room Marino Beach hotel,through banquet manager Mr.Athela and this function was superbly organized and throughly enjoyed by all guests. Specifically should mention about the amazing welcome drink, starter and delicious food with great hospitality of the staff.Assistant manager Mr.Austin has also tremendously contributed to smoothly run the function. I would highly recommend this hall for a great view and great experience to organize any event and I have no hesitation to recommend to anybody seeking advise on conduction a family function. I again thanks bouquet manager Mr.Athela for his tremendous contribution. Mr.M.I.M.Saleem Dehiwala

Think their marketing team should do better. I mean this as a compliment of course. The price and they product they offer is top notch. Food was Great. the staff extremley helpfull and friendly at all times, ambience and facilities of the hotel and room was super. If your a frequant traveller who visits hotels, especially the buissiness hotels in colombo, you would see that this place can be compared with the elite. hope to visit again and wishing them success!
Visited Tides restaurant and had an amazing family outing. Service and food were equally excellent. Buffet was with a variety of food and enjoyed every bit of it. Staff was friendly and well trained. They all followed safety measures and made sure everyone is enjoying their food without a hassle. High five for food! Highly recommended.
