We arrived late (as most flights into Colombo arrive late) and went to the hotel which offers 24 hour check-in. The counter was dark, nobody to be seen. Guy was asleep on the couches (fair enough it was pretty late). He took us to our room. We asked for some drinking water (there was none) and some toilet paper (there...

Pluses: We came at night (Colombo airport is 15-20 minutes), the night receptionist was very nice and tried to help with everything. Room was big and had an ocean view. Minuses: Room was NOT clean, no soap, no toilet paper. Smelled strange. It looked new, but actually was very used. Overpriced! In the morning we ordered breakfast for 4 people...

Best thing about this hotel is the view that opens to sea and beach. You can watch sunset while sitting in your balcony. But there are bad as well. Room are kind of old and lack of basic needs in a hotel room like enough towels/ toilet paper/ etc. Also if you are staying at this hotel you should not...

From January 2014 there is new owner of this hotel. He renew half of the stuff, and continue to improve this hotel. Clean rooms with very good view. Staff are very friendly, location is perfect (especially for divers, dive center in 150m), beach is very good. Sea Garden is very good value for money!

Arriving from the Hill-tops of Nuwara Eliya to a beach area hotel in the dark night was a bit of surprise with all the neon lights adorning the other well-known hotels along the beach street of Negombo. Not to be out-done by the other 4-Star hotels, this Sea Garden is fronted with some bright lights with an open space lounge...

Our tour operator asked us for 2000 SKR more to stay in this fleapit. God knows where we would have been staying previously. Carried the luggage up to the 2nd floor, saw the room and decided to check out. The a/c made a terrible noise; there was no toiletries at all; one towel was provided but the bathroom was filthy....

We didn't have high expectations for the hotel after reading the reviews here. But what we get was far worse then you could imagine. The only good thing about the hotel is the location. It's located right at the beach, but the other thing is that there is a beautiful hotel right up the beach. You can pay 750 rupee...
