Great service, two restaurants with fantastic food, a great pool right on the beach and very comfortable rooms. We were there in off season so didn't get to utilise the water sports but I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

Visited with my family for 2 nights 3 days in June. Nice hotel, good beach. We're on half board which means we got breakfast and dinner. Very vast selection for vegetarians ( which is rare for hotels in Sri Lanka) and good food. The only drawback was the lunch we had on the 1st day. They took almost 2 1/2...

The staff of this hotel made it to a great and relaxed stay! They took care of our bags, we got a nice refreshment towel and drank after the bus ride. A real luxury feeling! The room was 100% clean, comfortable beds, spacious bathroom and a great view over the ocean (just literally ten steps away)! We only took breakfast...

We walked into this hotel after being deceived by the neighboring hotel, which rated on Tripadvisor as the best hotel in Trincomalee. This was a heaven on earth for us, who have been starving and ill-treated at the previous hotel. Rooms are small, but very comfortable and the lovely view of the ocean is available. We loved watching the sunrise...

We had wonderful time at "Trinco Blu by Cinnamon". The hotel is right on the beach and all rooms are beach facing. Its huge property and very well maintained. The room size is good and so are bathrooms. The balcony was just right for viewing ocean and sunset and enjoying your favourite beverage. The hammock at beach just added to...

A beautiful hotel on the East coast of Sri Lanka. The staff were amazing! So friendly and helpful - nothing was too difficult for them to handle. One of the few hotels in Sri Lanka with parking for the disabled. Wheelchair assistance was made available on check in. The room (we were in a chalet right by the beach) was...

We flew in on Cinnamon Air to Trinco. The hotel provided transport from the airport. On arrival we were greeted with cool towels and welcome drinks. After a quick check in we were taken to our room/chalet that was very close to the beach. Very nicely appointed room, clean and comfortable. Since it was almost off season, the usual buffet...
