Have just returned from a SAGA 9 day holiday advertised as being all-inclusive in the Club Palm Bay Hotel in Sri Lanka which was reasonably priced and good value, and well worth the 2 x 10 hour flights with Sri Lankan Airlines. We had been before, with SAGA, 8 years ago so did not need to take the inclusive excursions...

It’s a good Hotel, spreader in a large property, having enormous swimming pool, surrounded amongst beautiful nature, very next to sea coast, Amazing location. It’s away by 30km approximately from Colombo Airport. Rooms are good, service is average. Vegetarian food is hopeless, thus vegetarian eaters have to remember that it isn't an appropriate place for them to stay for long....

Worst ever experience in customer service. Had to carry my own luggage using a hotel trolley. Restaurant staff not knowing the basic service. When asked what has happened to hotel service, they merely tell that they have staff issues. Will not recommend to any one.pls avoid this hotel.

My husband and I stayed at Club Palm Bay for 12 nights at the start of August - our first holiday without children for 20 years and our first trip to Sri Lanka. We were generally very impressed with the hotel - after a long flight it was good to only have a short transfer from the airport. Check-in was...

having read all the reviews, which are mixed, I think I have an understanding of why there is such a polarised view. We all know that it takes a lot of time and pondering to book and confirm the perfect holiday.so its critical that our expectations of paradise are delivered. so, for clarity: a) if you have never experienced white...

It was nice to be in Club Palm Bay as it was out of city. Very relaxing. Kids enjoyed the canoe ride and fishing. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Room was very spacious and cosy. Huge pool and lovely green garden.

We arrived at this hotel at 2 am and were not surprised that all the facilities and bar were already closed. The following day my friend and I went to the bar in the evening and sat 2 metres from where the waiter and the barman were standing. There were only 5 other customers in the bar at that time....
