Quite a simple hotel, not very fance or luxurious. But the staff goes out of their way to please. We were a family of 7 in 3 rooms. Pool is large and very clean and well maintained.The hotel is on the beach and has its own Water Sports Centre - which is open to outsiders as well of course. LSR Water sports centre.
Rooms are spacious and well kept. Sleep quality was a bit compromised because of old mattresses which need maintenance. The restaurant staff was courteous and a big Cheer for Chef Suranga for giving us special food of our choice at every meal. He was friendly and well informed and would chat with us regularly to discuss what we wanted to eat. Amazing food !! Thank you Chef.Also Sudha at the restaurant was extra helpful and all the boys at the bar. Overall a good place to stay for 3 nights to relax at Passikudah Beach and do some great watersports.

Room Tip: Closer to the beach end.

We went to Marina Beach for 2 nights. The rooms were massive. We had full board and it was so worth it! The food was absolutely delightful. The staff were so attentive and always ready to help. The beach was private and quiet, which was perfect for our quiet and relaxing getaway. I highly recommend it!

Our family of four booked here for 3 nights and ended up staying an extra night due to our children falling ill (no fault of the hotel).

Great location on a very beautiful beach. Coming from New Zealand we are no strangers to beautiful beaches, but Passikudah did not disappoint.

September was a great time to visit the east coast as the weather was good and we pretty much had the hotel to ourselves. The pool, in our view, was the best of all the resorts along the beach - large and deep enough to swim laps in.

Food was plentiful on the full-board plan, with some beautifully presented dishes served in a very prompt manner by attentive staff. The chef stopped by our table to chat every meal. My only recommendation to the hotel would be to add some Sri Lankan food options to the set meal plans - Sri Lankan food is so wonderful! A tasty khottu roti would be an asset to the restaurant.

We used the water sports centre on site to go snorkelling and diving. Snorkelling is at a small coral reef accessed by boat about 5 mins from the beach. Water clarity was ok, a few live corals (and lots of dead ones!) and plenty of tropical fish to keep the kids amused for an hour. Diving was also ok, saw fish, octopus, visibility about 10-15m. there are better dive spots around the world but at US$65 per dive it was still worth the trip.

Hotel room - we got a family room which was huge and nicely appointed. Nothing flash but nothing shabby either. An in-room guest directory would have been useful.

Staff were brilliant. When our children got sick they really went the extra mile to help out. Husband had fun playing cricket with the staff at sunset each day.

I would choose Marina Beach over the fancier 5-star resorts which share this pretty patch of sand. Value for money. We were sad to say goodbye.
