Stayed at the adjacent (and very average) Anilana hotel. Had seen the Nilaveli Beach Hotel when walking on the beach and, having stopped for a beer the day before, knew they were having a beach bbq. Advised a few other guests at Anilana to go, so when we arrived for dinner, found almost all the Anilana's guests at Nilaveli! What...

A Hotel to relax and unwind near the best beach in Sri Lanka during the season.The rooms are basic but comfortable but the location is just amazing with a stunning beach front with a view of Pigeon island. The food is average but adequate. The service is slow. Overall a very relaxing hotel

The setting and ambience of this hotel is unmatched by the newer and fancier hotels in this area. Though some areas may look a little worn and needing refurbishment, the overall ambience is unmatched. I stayed in a ground-floor deluxe room which is right up close to the beach and opens out on to the beach. Well worth the extra...

We stayed there for one night, me my wife and the 3yrs kid. Large spacious hotel and we booked a budget room with AC at the last minute through trip advisor and it was a super deal. Room was old but value for money. We ate outside in Trinkomale. Large pool and a real deal end with 10ft. Suitable for...

This has been a go to hotel for the local new year for me and my cousins and friends due to the shady and quiet setting. I would recommend going on half board or B&B basis as you will probably want to eat at the pool side bar/restaurant during the day and possibly at night. The buffet and menu a...

Although this hotel was top of the range a few years back, currently it needs a refurbishment. Badly. The ambience, the view and the sea are timeless. The hotel, sadly, is not so. Most of the rooms are old and has a rest house feel to it. Not a good thing. Nilaveli beach hotel could be so much better with...

It's a very quiet and beautiful location along the beach. The trees and landscape around the property gives enough shade to enjoy outdoors in a very relaxing manner. Excellent customer service. Good choice of food. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Nilaveli Beach Hotel used to be our hang out for weekends when we lived in Trincomalee but it was totally destroyed by the 2004 tsunami.

We were at this hotel for drinks on a Thursday night. There were two workers are the bar and no other humans around. It was a ghost town. The busy season for Sri Lanka is June to August. The hotel is clean and the drinks were good. Nothing extraordinary.
