Definetly worth a visit and the best in Negombo

Review by darwinist2009 Bavaria

Nice big enough rooms with a rallye nice view over pool and beach. Very friendly reception fair enough everybody in the hotel is very friendly allways smiling and very customer-oriented. Good breakfast with a wide selection of choices and absolut excellent curries...

Pool could be cleaner and some of the pool furniture and towels etc could be replaced but seeing the current situation in Srilanka they do a marvellous job. We had a beautifull holiday and will be back one day.

Disappointing hotel

Review by AnaNatya Geneva, Switzerland

Seeing the beautiful pictures and reading all the positive reviews I was really not expecting what this hotel turned out to be - a big disappointment. I'm guessing the other guests leaving positive reviews only stayed overnight as they were transferring to/from the airport. This was my fourth Jetwing and fifth overall hotel during my Sri Lanka trip and could not even compare to some of the other 4 and 5 star places I've stayed at...

It is the only hotel receiving a negative review.

The room was really worn down, with a lot of the furniture and appliances needing urgent replacing. Air conditioning was old and moody. Some of the wall mounted appliances were coming off, others just didn't work at all. The sound proofing was very poor, if you happened to have any neighbours next door you could easily hear all their conversations, same for any traffic down the corridor...

Hotel restaurant was average, food selection was ok, however on the first two nights there was a set menu instead of buffet and some of my courses arrived cold. I was advised guests staying at the Jetwing Beach could use all the amenities of Jetwing Blue, yet the one day I tried I was told it was impossible to even get a drink from the bar unless I'll pay in cash (no card accepted).

The beach is very long and wide, but completely overrun by hawkers who kept staring and nagging hotel guests all day long. Due to the proximity to the port it was also quite dirty...

I really love animals but the amount of stray dogs that were practically residing in the restaurant was a bit too much even for me. Same goes for the number of ravens/crows that were all over the place and stealing food whenever you left it unattended forever a split second.

The only really good thing about this hotel was the staff - great, kind and friendly people who made my 3 day stay bearable.

I wish we stayed longer

Review by 15Kelly47 London, United Kingdom

We had a lovely first night of our holiday stay at this beautiful, eco-friendly hotel. The hotel and rooms were lovely; the staff was friendly and efficient; and the breakfast was very good. We loved the beautiful setting on the beach.

Beautiful hotel - my favourite hotel in Sri Lanka

Review by 834carysa Carmarthen, United Kingdom

We stayed at Jetwing Beach on our first night in Sri Lanka and it was by far our favourite out of all the hotels we stayed at!!! The hotel is breathtaking - gorgeous beach side views, beautiful rooms and the staff were so welcoming & attentive.

The view from our beach front room was stunning - we were on the ground floor which meant we could slip out directly onto the beach.

Food was amazing - a set menu that was really varied, and good quality...

Waiting staff were always on hand & attentive.

Would definitely recommend to others!

Lovely Geoffrey Bawa Designed Hotel

Review by Jane E New York City, New York

I feel as though I must have stayed in a different hotel to that of other reviewers. My experience was only 1 night but very good overall. Firstly, the hotel is not busy but also not deserted as are some other places in Sri Lanka...

My room was a fairly standard size with balcony looking out to sea through the palm trees. The only thing that I didn't like was the strange glass enclosed tub sticking out the side of the bathroom. Even though I was alone in the room and there were blinds for the glass panels it still seemed too exposed. That said the bathroom was still user friendly with a very large shower stall and many toiletries stored in reusable glass bottles or in cloth bags. There was also filtered water in reusable glass bottles.

The bed was huge and comfortable and the room also contained a bag stand, minibar, ironing board, kettle and mini coffee press and a couple of lounge chairs. There were chairs and a table on the balcony. The A/C was very good as was the wifi and my floor at least was very quiet. Power cuts are very common in Sri Lanka and the hotel was no exception but the power was back on within a few minutes suggesting that there is a good generator back up system.

I used the restaurant only for breakfast where there was a good buffet with lots of choices including both waffles/pancakes and eggs cooked to order. There are 3 different pools outside including 1 under cover plus a small sandy beach area with loungers. I checked these out immediately after breakfast and at that time did not see the intrusive dogs and vendors reported by other guests. Finally, the building design is lovely and very much in keeping with the environment.

I would be very happy to return to the Beach Hotel to spend a longer period there.
