Carolina Beach Hotel
Ranked #1 of 9 Chilaw B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 June 2015 via mobile

I was a guest at this hotel by accident. This hotel was listed on Agoda.com among those under 'Negembo'. Not sure whose mistake but it appears among the top three hotels for Negembo.

The hotel and rooms are nice, staff friendly but unless you want to specifically to the area, this hotel is too far! Good choices are limited however. For me the problem was, once booked, of course you cannot change. The manager offered an upgrade and other services when I called from the airport -- this did not happen!

If you want to combine this hotel with a visit to Colombo, it would be extremely difficult unless you plan to spend at least some extended duration at both locations.

In short, unless planning a get-away from Colombo and you have at least 3-4 days to spare, I would avoid this hotel.

The hotel is situated facing beautiful beach front. It is quite large with all the facilities and the attraction is the huge pool which provide relaxation to its optimum. Room conditions were good and the food was also excellent.The spa too was of high quality. Staff was very courtiers and besides being concerned of our needs and wants.The entertainment specially arranged for us was beyond compare. The enjoyment we got was excuisite.we're thanking to the management for creating this atmosphere exceptionally to us..cheers

Though a little far from excursions compare to other places, this place serves you some best local cuisine. A massive pool offers you enough relaxing time for your family and chalets are decently built with good hygiene. Little improvements are of course needed like toothpastes not available and housekeeping responses were delayed a bit. Overall this is a place to visit and stay.

Room Tip: Facing the pool or facing the garden landscape.

We enjoyed this hotel, especially the pool! The food was also nice however the rooms need improvement. A few areas to work on would be to ensure that the rooms smell clean and fresh and cleaned regularly. The hot water never worked properly and the water pressure in the bathrooms was poor. Besides these it was a clean and comfortable hotel. Had a lovely time with my whole family!

The location and the pool are good. Very bad service and unprofessional leadership whom does not know about the word service. Staffs are not friendly compares to the other nearby hotels . We never had such a bad experience in any other hotels in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is known for the its hospitality but at this place hospitality is a alien word. They charged us more than the discounted price and denied to refund. We felt like we were cheated and our holiday was ruined. The food was tasty but they almost served the same menu everyday every meal. I never ever return to this place and will not recommend for anyone. Specially not good for families.
