good hotel for a short stay
This was our first hotel on arriving in Sri Lanka for a 3 week tour. Rooms on ground floor overlooking the pool were ok but i don't think I'd want to satya in the main block of rooms given their location. No lifts. The room, as with most hotel rooms in Sri Lanka, was showing signs of being affected by the humidity and looked a bit worn and had a damp smell about them. Unfortunately there was a drain smell in the bathroom which although not really bad was a bit off putting. The buffet breakfast was good and we ate three times in the hotel dining room over our 5 night stay, the food was very very varied and good. There is direct access to the beach from the hotels and although there were lots of beach hawkers they did not encroach onto the hotel property. Unfortunately when we visited in Nov 2018 there was a lot of building work going on as they are extending the hotel and this was right next to our block. We were not told about this before we arrived. One day the building work went on for a full 24hr period, right through the night. When we complained the next day they said they had to work through the night as there was a load of concrete coming the next day and they had to have everything ready for it!!!! The staff were OK and surprising got more friendly the day before we left!

A good value mid level choice in Negombo
Goldi Sands is a good to very good hotel on the beach in Negombo. Facilities are functional and clean. Staff are very helpful. It’s not a flashy place but then again it’s well priced. We stayed in one ground level room which was a bit dark and tired, and in a top story room (200 #s) that was brighter and had ocean views which we much preferred. Food was fair to good not great. Nice pool. Beach sellers and debris can be annoying enough to keep one off the beach. Negombo itself is unattractive but does have some shopping and some good food eg. Cilantro.

Hotel location good . Breakfast good . Rooms good apart from showers poor as Luke warm to cold water . Contacted reception was told maintenance would come nobody came. I think it was a common thing to have cool water . If an unusual problem this would of been dealt with or alternative room offered but nothing . This spoilt our first experience of Sri Lanka as we had just arrived. So wouldn’t stay again.
