When arriving at the hotel in the mid morning sun, We were welcomed to the hotel with a cool refreshing drink.
I wont rabbit on but this hotel has to be one well managed hotels in Sri lanka. Staff very polite,Kind and willing to go out of there way for you.

Selection of drinks on the AI package it more than reasonable and the food is of a high standard.

We stayed in a deluxe room and was very clean, spaciouse and modern

The Jetwing sea hotel made our honeymoon kick off to a fantastic start before we departed for the Maldives. Could not Fault it

Room Tip: Deluxe Rooms are much larger and more modern, They are also more of them and higher up on the hotel...

Great location, good food, most of the staff working In the hotoe were really friendly and nice. Initially I was not pleased with the standar room and wanted to change to a delux room. The decor of the standar room and particularly the bathroom was a bit of downer for me, main problem being the bahroom decor looked "unclean". But after a wonderfully peaceful sleep in my king size super comfy bed in the standar room I did not want to move even thought the delux room are really much nicer. I loved my private little veranda with a spetacular view of the beach.
The very best part of the hotel is the SPA, an absolute great experiance!
The hotel could be even better if they only spend a little bit more on revamping the standar rooms and particulary the bathrooms.

This was our first visit to Sri Lanka. We thought it would be an ideal honeymoon destination as we wanted to experience both paradise and culture. We saw the Jetwing Sea hotel on the Kuoni website. After reading other reviews we decided to book. We had a late flight and arrived at the hotel at 3am. We were greeted with lots of smiles by the reception staff and were checked in quickly with our cases being bought to our room. The hotel itself is very clean and extremley well kept, with a modern design and free Wifi. The pool areas also are very well maintained with Pool Attendants available with towels at any time. Special mentions to Kennedy in reception who dealt with us so nicely whist changing our money. Taking time to talk about the local area etc. Also Roshan the Pastry Chef was amazing. So friendly and took time to make sure we were happy with our whole dining experience and making my new husband special chocolate desserts - it made his day :) We went half board at the hotel and can give all the food huge praise. Breakfast buffets has a vast choice and with slight changes everyday to keep things interesting. Dinner was either a themed buffet (Mongolian, Sri Lanken, Asian, BBQ) or a 4 course menu choice again all a l carte dining - so impressed!! We had a 4 hour boat trip with Serit who we met on the beach. Lovely guy would highly recommend. All in all a fantastic honeymoon which we will never forget. Clean. Modern. Friendly staff. Amazing food. Great amenities. Good location. Private beach. Big rooms. Total value for money. We will be back. Mr and Mrs Bannister.

Returned 16th May after staying 15nights. Hotel De-luxe room was lovely. Staff very friendly and helpful and food very good. Went on a 3 hour boat trip from 6.00am with Sarith who we met on the beach. This trip was excellent we saw lots of wildlife and birds we had never seen in Sri Lanka before as we have made many trips there. Sarith was very informative also. If you want to eat out in the evening or visit bars food is very good and Negombo is lively, need to take a tuc-tuc if you don't want to walk, cost £1 each way

Room Tip: De-luxe room on 2nd floor convenient for beach and restaurant
