We had a reallly good time here. Me and my husband enjoyed it a lot, The staff is really friendly, especially Nadun was very caring and made our evening at central beach inn very special. He paid a lot of attention and he remembered what we ordered last evening so it really felt like home. Thank for the great service.

We stayed for 6 nights and it was just wonderful. The team was great, the room was very clean and in the bathroom was a new shower. We would wish to come back once again to enjoy also the great food and the cocktails of the bar and restaurant. Thank you for that wonderful stay directly at the beach!

Stopped by here for breakfast while travelling to Matara with family. Refused to serve us just because we were locals. Racistsm at it's best. Heads up for all travelers, avoid Central Beach Inn at all costs.

The central beach Inn is located directly on the beach which is very nice, but the rooms were not as nice as expected. The fan was very noisy and we couldn't sleep at night but we were allowed to change rooms after one night. The second room was OK. The staff was not very helpful.

What a waste of a brilliant location. This bar/hotel has the prime #1 spot on the beach but they don't sell alcohol. I saw people going next door to buy beers throughout the day & then coming back to drink them. The lost revenue must be enormous. In the evenings the bar was completely deserted apart from the staff, whilst...

We walked in off the beach to see if they had any rooms, had I read the reviews, from late 2015-2016, we may not have done. However I can't say I witnessed any of the racist behaviours, there were plenty of "dark" people and locals in the bar being served. The location is perfect and the room was 3500 with...

They refused to serve me because I am dark skinned. Apparently only 'Whites' are allowed. The place even had signage stating "Whites beyond this point". This is the most racist gesture I have come across while travelling. My partner is white, so it means she is welcome, and I am not?!? Wake up people!
