So a review for Dickman Resort? it’s easy – It’s Excellent! I recently stayed 15 nights and enjoyed every minute. Checked in at 19:30 and the staff took my bags to the room ‘Mango Suite’. I finally made it to my room at 01:00 because I was having a drink and talking with the staff all that time, such a warm welcome and an excellent introduction to Sri Lanka. The rooms are spacious and clean. The garden and pool and well kept. I cannot think of a bad comment to make. The breakfast, as most people have commented on, is fabulous. BUT….Its the staff... if you want to stay in a hotel where you are treated like gold, then this is the place to go. After just 4 days I posted this on my FB account: ‘I’ve stayed in Intercontinental’s, Hilton, Raddison, Marriott, Best Western along with a lot of other hotels but this has got to be one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in’ The feeling is just the same now, cannot wait to go back. If any hotels want to learn how to look after guests and make them feel welcome, then visit Dickman Resort.

Very difficult to sum the Dickman up - for highly positive reasons! PLUSSES: Super friendly staff - Damith, Danushka, Treshan and their colleagues make you feel like family, and happily sort out any needs. Great hotel building, designed by Sri Lankan architect Dilan Holsinger. Clean and smart rooms. Large bathrooms. Excellent breakfasts by Indika to look forward to every morning. Located in the nicer part of Negombo - a few minutes' walk to Negombo Beach and the shops of Porotota Road. MINUSES: None. Indika even whipped up a lovely dinner (with lime and coconut cake) for my birthday! All round, a unique place to stay. Can't wait to relax there again.

Spent my last four nights here after a nine week trip.A true boutique hotel- quirky, small, tasteful with great service. Everywhere you look there’s something beautiful to see. Don’t come if you want anodyne predictability. I stayed in the fabulous ‘Pink Room’, super comfy bed, massive balcony, all you could ask for. The staff were absolutely top class, I could have stayed for months. Fantastic large pool. Legendary breakfasts and will make whatever you ask for. Can’t wait to return!

From the time we arrived until the moment we departed 5 days later we were looked after by every one of the staff members! We stayed in the purple room, which we would recommend to anyone who ever wants to visit. There was no request to weird , to much to ask or in possible …. They assisted us with all our PCR tests for our departure, really a fantastic team they’ve got! On our next trip we will go straight there as they are close to the airport, all the necessary information and services needed.

Me and my partner stayed here for our final night in Sri Lanka and what a fantastic place it is to stay! A little different from other places we’ve stayed, set out is amazing and very welcoming and so are the staff. If I’d known about this place earlier I would have visited sooner. Rooms are fantastic, I’d definitely recommend this.

Lovely place to chill in Negambo… The staff were really friendly and the food was amazing. They're very courteous and professional, and made us feel comfortable throughout our stay. The property itself was incredible. My room was huge, massive bed and comfy over looking the garden and pool. Love the tranquility and calmness. It's private and the beach is minutes away! Leaving Dickmans resorts left us with some serious holiday blues. I can't wait to come back Would definitely recommend Chef Indikas Sri Lankan Omlette it’s rib smacking good!!!

Dickman Resort was our first stop at the beginning of a two-week private tour of Sri Lanka. I had chosen it rather by default, as I was not very impressed by the other hotels on offer in Negombo. My preference is for small, authentic-style hotels and, despite being a little put off by the name, Dickman Resort seemed to have individual charm and character – particularly the brightly coloured décor. I was not disappointed; in fact, it far exceeded my expectations! We were warmly greeted by the courteous staff, offering freshly squeezed passion fruit juice whilst we checked-in. Flowers adorned our bed and we were supplied with a generous fruit plate and cold water in refillable glass bottles (a plus point for eco-awareness; but the staff need to remember to offer this at breakfast time, as they automatically brought me water in a plastic bottle, versus filtered in glass). The Standard ground floor room was the only one available when we booked, but it was very quiet on account of few people in the hotel, and perfect for a 24 hour stay, despite its location (it is right next to the reception area and its large windows open directly out onto the pool, so no privacy when the curtains are open). It is tastefully and colourfully decorated, albeit a little tired and quirky in parts (atrium-style shower opens out onto a scruffy rooftop). I enjoyed a couple of quiet refreshing swims in the pool, where the friendly pool attendant was eager to provide me with a chaise longue, towel and even a Yoga mat! I also liked the fact that there were no time restrictions, so I could have a 6 o’clock swim before breakfast. The manager’s recommendation for dinner at a local restaurant was rather disappointing, especially as I had specifically said that I was seeking something typically Sri Lankan. It turned out to be a restaurant for tourists, complete with purple neon lighting and live English golden oldies! To be fair, the Sri Lankan food, on the extensive menu (principally international!), was rather good. In hindsight, being somewhat jet-lagged, we should have followed the manager’s suggestion to order food from the said restaurant, and dine in the hotel’s tranquil tropical garden (particularly as authentic restaurants in Negombo are few and far between – according to TA). Breakfast at the hotel did not disappoint, being a copious fruit plate (we soon realised that this portion was the norm, reflecting Sri Lankan generosity; so we used to share one between us to avoid the carefully cut fruit being wasted). We politely declined the kind offer of eggs and bread, which we don’t eat in the mornings. Healthy options such as muesli, granola or porridge with yoghurt/coconut milk (offered by similar Sri Lankan hotels), would have been a bonus, as would good coffee versus instant – but, I was seeking authenticity in the land of tea, so you can’t have it all! I would definitely stay at the Dickman Resort again, and I would certainly recommend it as a good temporary stopover, particularly as it is just 30 minutes from Colombo airport.
