Dont expect luxury or a lively holiday here, excellent staff though and very clean, would reccomend if you want to just chill or use as a base like we did, we looked into 5 * but would have cost £1000 more for the 9 days we were there. On our departure we were asked how they could improve the hotel,...

Dilip S, General Manager at Hotel Mermaid & Club, responded to this review

We refer to the reviewers recent stay at Mermaid Hotel & Club and are dismayed by the false and over exaggerated comments made. It is a pity that the reviewer chose to stay at hotels which are between 4 ½ to 5 stars and then book a 3 start resort towards the end of their stay. The reviewer agrees that...

This was my first time in Sri Lanka and therefore at the Mermaid. There are many things about Sri Lanka which are fantastic, such as the genuine and honest people, the landscapes and the wildlife. There are other things which are a challenge, such as the traffic, the dodgy stomachs and the occasional over-persistent shopkeeper. Overall though, if you can...

I loved The Mermaid. We went (couple early 30s) in December 2012, catching up on my travels now I have time! Arriving in Colombo for the frist time, the drive to the resort was such an eye opener to us who hadn't seen the city before, we booked with Hayes and Jarvis and had a driver through their subsidary.

We stayed here for 5 nights. Staff were friendly and service was exceptional. If you are looking for the "Hilton" brand, you won't find it here. The hotel is relaxed, rooms are clean and the food is fresh everyday. Our only gripe is that other guests will come out (early in the morning) and "reserve" their sun lounger (with a...
