Like many, if not most, we simply spent our first night here after arriving hot & tired at chaotic Colombo airport. Short taxi ride brought us to spacious well kept grounds and friendly welcome (including glass of freshly pressed juice at reception). Large, tidy room with air con (struggled to keep room as cool as we'd have wished). Ice cool...

The Tamarind Tree Hotel is just a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport. Lots of lovely chalet style villa in palm-tree gardens. A wonderful large swimming pool which was great in the heat. Each chalet has a large seated living room with fridge and coffee making facilities. The bedroom has air conditioning and there are electric ceiling fans in...

This was the final destination of our trip with an overnight stay before flying home. It is a very quiet location ten minutes away from the airport. The room was well appointed. It is obviously used as a transit hotel by many large tour parties and this can make the restaurant seem rather chaotic. As our flight was in the...

This hotel was provided during a business class stopover with Sri Lankan airlines. It's very convenient for the airport and is on an estate...a very beautiful estate. We were given a villa which comprised a lounge and full dining area, a double bedroom, and basic but perfectly satisfactory bathroom. Furnishings were quite up-market and comfortable, and the whole villa was...

We locked ourselves out, only one bell boy and he was given misinformation and sent running around to let us in. From what we saw, I think all the problems at this hotel stem from chaotic management and insufficient, and/or untrained, staff. food was ok, but nothing special. As I say, the surroundings and pool area were lovely.

I stayed one night in a 'basic' room, and another in a 'villa' type room. The basic room was average at best. The Bathrooms needed to be cleaned better. The villa was nice, but again the bathrooms could be cleaner. The hotel was supposed to cover my $8 airport transfer, but refused to. It's not a big expense, but more...

Arrived 1.00 am on 7/12/16. The reception staff was expecting us and we were checked in immediately. I requested for a power adapter compatible with Australian electrical equipment and it was provided within few minutes. Rooms were clean and spacious. Air con, power points and taps were in working order. Quiet surrounding. Wide variety of breakfast food, and professional service....

When we checked in, we were served tamarind juice - how appropriate! The service was decent...the rooms were comfy, clean and spacious, the surrounding was well kept and tidy. Just one thing - the management should light up the walkways because it tends to get a bit dark at night. Otherwise, we had a relaxing stay.

We were on transit to another country and this hotel was given as a stop over. As you enter the grounds there are security guards and closed gates - so this place lends itself to being very secure and offers a quite stay away from the from the road area. The grounds are extensive and full of trees etc. The...
