The view atmosphere is very nice and cosy. But the room was very simple in fact already to much. Also I did not like the open sewage from the hotel. But the view is fantastic For me the price to high for what the offer

We have stayed at Silver Sands Negombo many times to recover from or get ready for a long flight. It is convenient to have an air port pick up. There are a choice of rooms for different budgets and the restaurant is very good. It is handily located for the airport and for eating out too. Always clean and efficient...

I booked for a night before an early flight from Colombo. My room was comfortable, bathroom was ok. I had a balcony with a seaview, no air con but a very quiet fan. The food was delicious. I organised a taxi to the airport for 4.30 am which arrived on time. For those needing wifi it functioned only in the...

Having stayed here in 2010 I had no problem with booking Silver Sands again on my recent trip both incoming and for prior to departure. When I arrived I had no quarms as it was out of season and there were few people about, but for my view changed for peak season. During my travel around Sri Lanka I badly...

Fairly horrible stay at Silver Sands. Gladly it was just one night in transit. Where to start... *Airport collection arrived 1h late at 130am *Room filled to the brim with Mosquitos *Uncomfortable bed with sheets unravelling instantly *Guests packing their gear loudly outside my room at 4am after getting to bed at 2am, and generally noisy room outside of reception...

Not a great start for a holiday. It was a good idea to skip Colombo and start with the easy-going Negombo, but this hotel was not worth it. Compared to every other hotel in the country (of course in Negombo there is a totally different scene) this hotel is medium-prize/cheap, but the personnell is not very welcoming or helpful and...

Generally, I stay at Silver Sands Hotel both coming to & when leaving Sri Lanka. I have already explored Negombo, the first time I was there, so now I just use the hotel as a base to go to & from the airport. The hotel is the same since 2010 when I first came there. They did NOT raise their...

This hotel is 10 minutes from the airport and right at the beach. The perfect place to rest after a long flight. The staff is very friendly and the prices are good. The showerhead was a bit rusty which is why 4 out of 5 stars.

This is a very good place to start your travels in Sri Lanka ! Very calm, chilled, right on the beach and everyone very helpful in gentle understated way. Delicious Sri Lankan supper and breakfast. Help with transport both getting from the airport to Silver Sands and then on to our next destination.Old building with real character & everything worked...

We stayed here our last night before leaving Sri Lanka and booked the place because it was close to the airport and close to the beach and because it looked good on the pictures. It met our expectations and was very good value for the money. A nice big room with good beds and a little veranda with a view...
