We stayed there for one night, me my wife and the 3yrs kid. Large spacious hotel and we booked a budget room with AC at the last minute through trip advisor and it was a super deal. Room was old but value for money. We ate outside in Trinkomale. Large pool and a real deal end with 10ft. Suitable for...

This has been a go to hotel for the local new year for me and my cousins and friends due to the shady and quiet setting. I would recommend going on half board or B&B basis as you will probably want to eat at the pool side bar/restaurant during the day and possibly at night. The buffet and menu a...

Although this hotel was top of the range a few years back, currently it needs a refurbishment. Badly. The ambience, the view and the sea are timeless. The hotel, sadly, is not so. Most of the rooms are old and has a rest house feel to it. Not a good thing. Nilaveli beach hotel could be so much better with...

It's a very quiet and beautiful location along the beach. The trees and landscape around the property gives enough shade to enjoy outdoors in a very relaxing manner. Excellent customer service. Good choice of food. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Nilaveli Beach Hotel used to be our hang out for weekends when we lived in Trincomalee but it was totally destroyed by the 2004 tsunami. We returned in April 2017 and were very warmly welcomed by the staff, some of them the same as before the tsunami. The beach, the water and the waves are fantastic, the beach bar has...

We were at this hotel for drinks on a Thursday night. There were two workers are the bar and no other humans around. It was a ghost town. The busy season for Sri Lanka is June to August. The hotel is clean and the drinks were good. Nothing extraordinary.

The minute we got to our room, we were disappointed. The room was very dated, smelled like mould and wasn't the luxury hotel we had expected. To be honest, the staff were overly friendly and welcoming which was nice. The issue is the hotel ambiance feels sterile, and dull. Combined with rooms that don't have double or queen mattresses, are...

This is nice hotel with access to one of the most beautiful beaches in Sri Lanka. Rooms were pretty good but there are areas to improve. Generally the food was also pretty good and the staff were quiet friendly. Once again there is room for improvement if you need to excel.
