We have stayed in Marmaid for 2 weeks and it was definitely too short. Sri Lanka is a very beautiful country with fantastic cuisine ( all sorts of curry ) and very nice people. Mermaid Hotel and Club was the place we were looking for for our family holiday.The place is spotless and we found no negatives about the hotel....

My daughter and I have just returned from 9 days staying at The Mermaid and can thoroughly recommend the place. We stayed in a deluxe room which was excellent....only moments away from the main bar and pool - but enough to cut out any noise. Loads of space, comfy large bed, efficient air-con, all the facilities that might need.The bath...

Stayed at the mermaid for 10 nights and the hotel is very good value for money, however, this is mainly due to the excellent quality of the staff employed. The location is not so good, placed close to a railwayline and distanced from any outlets, this said if you are a couple just wanting a get away holiday where you...

We've just returned from our 2 week stay at Sri Lanka where we stayed at the Mermaid. The hotel staff were excellent and we were impressed with the service at the restaurant and especially one of the waiters, 'chatty man' who made us laugh constantly. The food was good albeit for two weeks became a little repetitive however they did...

From the moment we arrived the staff made us totally relaxed and welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was plentiful, varied and delicious. We were fully inclusive and even our 16 year old son was defeated by the amount of food available! The special lobster platter was truly amazing and excellent value! The facilities were great and the...

We had travelled to Colombo for business purpose. We decided to spend the weekend away from Colombo...at a beach resort for a nice relaxing time. And we had exactly that! Thanks to the beautiful resort location, nicely decorated rooms, delicious food & helpful staff...the affordable price just added to it. The spa also looked good. Sadly we couldn't use it...

I stayed at this resort for a long weekend and it exceeded expectations. It was clean and had everything you needed from a resort for a short stay. Waking up to a view of the beach was amazing but above all, the warm, friendly atmosphere provided by the staff made this trip and resort stand out as a cut above...
