Lovely room with an ocean view.
A villa like small hotel. Perfect location right on the beach. Super helpful staff were always assisting us. Comfortable well equipped room with amazing ocean view. Very busy road on the other side so walking by beach / tuk tuk's are quite mandatory. We had a wonderful stay at Ocean Crest Hotel.

Great staff! Beautiful view of the ocean and the surfers. Not directly on a sandy beach but only a 3 minute walk. Very comfortable beds and a nice pool. Good breakfast and nice seafood dinners as well. A great find!

friendly staff, beautiful location overlooking ocean but no access to sandy beach. Only a five minute walk to beach. Nice pool area and great breakfast. A bit of road noise from buses, etc.

10/10 Exceptional

A gem of a hotel, with the most perfect quiet location on the ocean and steps down to the beautiful, long, uncrowded beach. Staying here for a week was a real highlight of our three week tour of Sri Lanka. The manager, Sanath, and his wonderful staff could not do enough for us and organised private transfers from and to Colombo airport and tuktuks to take us to local attractions. We ate wonderful, fresh meals in the hotel most evenings, under palm trees, at a table in the garden down by the sea. Magic! Breakfast was also delicious – freshly squeezed juices, large pots of coffee or tea, plates of fresh fruits, eggs, toast and marmalade. Our room was cleaned every day, with fresh towels and pool towels, flip flops and bathrobes; the air con was quiet and easy to adjust; a large comfortable bed with good linen and a good shower; and a huge private terrace with sunbeds and a view over the pool and ocean. We slept like babies, lulled to sleep by the waves. Fishermen’s stilts (though empty as the fishing season had just finished) right outside the hotel and the surfers were out by 6.30 every morning opposite our terrace. The beach is soft, golden sand and the sea shallow enough to enjoy jumping around in the big waves. Great for surfing, families and all ages and for a lovely quiet walk while enjoying the sunset. We were really sad to leave and we would recommend this hotel to anyone who loves simple, good quality hotels with an emphasis on comfort, relaxation and 5 star service.
