I traveled this this region of Sri Lanka to explore Diving here. This hotel was a perfect stop-over for my needs, The staff was outstanding. With the huge rooms and great area's to dry my equipment... it was just what I needed. With easy Dive shop pickups! My diving of their reefs and Pigeon island was educational. But the country must further protect their reefs... this asset is why tourist visit here!! protect it !! My visit to Sri Lanka is during a difficult time for the country. Fuel shortages and economic crisis make all hotels, travel and activities difficult. The staff here was of outstanding assistance in working onward travel and transfers. And the food very good! Saved me!! :) Feel confident that your stay here will be a success!!

We really enjoyed our 3 nights stay at the deluxe room. We could hear the sounds of the sea and slept so well. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is the best breakfast we have had until now. Great Sri Lankan and western food. If you are craving western food, we can recommend the buffet dinner. Will come back for sure, Cat

Have been coming to Trinco since I was a toddler, and Nilaveli Beach Hotel has been like a second home. We even came here several times during our long and drawn out 30 year War. no matter what though the staff at this place never let you down, and I was soooo pleased to come back after about 10 years and find that the place and its people are still as amazing as ever. Covid protocols 100% met, every surface cleaned and sanitised, tables set apart, temperature checks... they do it all, with a charm and smile that leaves you feeling like this new normal aint really so bad. The newly refurbished rooms are fantastic, again spotlessly clean and comfortable and huge...walk out your door and the beach and the ocean is literally right in front of you. This beach hotel, really is on the beach. Now for the icing on the cake.. the food .. delicious seafood, so fresh yes you can taste it in every mouthful. portions are generous and yet, diets are eagerly postponed so that you can eat that last spoonful, as its just too good to waste. all are catered for, even my two year old had things he could eat and enjoyed. seriously this place is just as warm, wonderful and memorable as I remember as a child. Usually childhood memories never live up to adult experiences, but Nilaveli Beach, just has maintained its magic. I was so very happy to take my son back to a place that I had spent so may years of my childhood, and to know that he too will have lovely memories of this truly unique hotel in Trinco. Do visit, do enjoy and trust me you will find it hard to forget.

We stopped in Trinco on our way down from Jaffna. Knowing the name Nilaveli Beach Hotel has made for itself during the last 40 something years, it was no question as to where we were going to stay. The highlight for me was the location itself- being on the beachfront, we were able to walk down to the beach within minutes of leaving the room. The sand and water were beautiful and it was nice to see clean sand in Sri Lanka for a change! The pool was perfect for an evening swim and the beachside bar was also a nice spot to unwind. If at all, i would suggest that the bar drinks menu was made a bit more extensive (to include more than just the 10 standard cocktails). The food served was good- buffet breakfast was exceptional! However, I found the lunch set menu a bit lacklustre and the buffet dinner (although very tasty) wasn’t very well thought out- I think focusing on just 2 or 3 cuisines (rather than trying to have a bit of everything) would have worked better. On the second day of our stay, we booked a ticket on a boat to visit Pigeon Island (which was absolutely gorgeous in spite of being a bit crowded for my liking). The fact that the hotel itself was able to make the necessary arrangements for our little outing was another big plus- they took care of everything for us. The managerial staff were overly helpful and welcoming. A suggestion might be to encourage the serving staff to try to interact a bit more with the guests- the few that did strike up short conversations really made a positive difference to the overall feeling/vibe. To conclude, the room was well made up and clean. It was encouraging to see the efforts made my the management in regards to Covid 19 precautions- despite the hotel being packed, I felt safe and somehow even though all staff were in masks (which was great to see), our holiday felt ‘normal’ in this Covid-centered world we live in now. Will definitely visit again !

Went for the breakfast and it was a completely waste of money. Foods were not tasty and portions also not satisfied as the prices. The one who was there at the restaurant also not a very much friendly. One of the worst breakfast À la carte menu ever tried.
