Stayed 5 nights and highly recommend as the location is great. Our room wad on the lower level so we could walk right out to the pool and beach. The food was excellent as well as the staff who were very friendly and attentive.
The hotel is really nicely decorated and its location makes it perfect for somebody who wants to enjoy the piece and quiet while enjoying a view of the beach. My room was located in the ground floor with direct access to the swimming pool. It has a nice veranda where you can lounge as you await sunrise/sunset times.
Breakfast is good and so are the lunch and buffet options. While the service needs more warmth and hospitality, it is courteous and prompt.
I enjoyed walking on the beach right at the front of the property at dawn and at dusk. The sound of the waves, while angry and harsh against the shore, is so comforting.
We organised a private driver from U.K. called Shan who works for ColourLanka. This I totally recommend a real value for money. We were picked up and he organised all the tours for us.
I stayed in the this hotel with my husband in November, the hotel has a ocean view in every room. Extremely clean with a great Service. The breakfast was delicious with huge variety of choices. The egg in coconut pancake was really good.
The pool is nice and quiet. The beach is clean and nice for to swim in. You get some sellers on the beach but not too bad. Whilst we were there it was the full moon where they have a public holiday, the locals were having a party. That was great to see. We ate at King Coconut twice, big portions and value for money. This place is packed with locals which is always good news. I had my best rice and curry ever in a place called Queens restaurant, wow so much of food and so delicious all for £5, truly amazing.
We also went on a lagoon tour, best experience of my life, had a picnic in the middle of the water and saw some monkeys. Again wow. The tour we used was called Virgin Mary Lagoon Safari, you can call Colour Lanka who would organise this. This lagoon tour is well worth it.
Shan would help you with your personalised holiday with a great service and the price is right.
A wonderful stay at Heritance and a great experience in Negombo.
Totally recommend this hotel and Negombo is really under rated, well worth the visit.
The Fantastic Heritance Hotel in Negambo is very well managed. As you reach the hotel you are met by pleasant and helpful staff who are security conscious, polite and efficient.The hotel has a beautiful ambience, fragrance with fresh flowers and and a comfortable atmosphere. The staff at the Reception are polite, efficient and knowledgeable. Its easy to discuss with them your needs and places to visit whilst in Sri Lanka.The rooms are cleaned daily and the towels are changed. There is a good Laundry service, a Spa and a Gym.The Dining room too is very clean and the Breakfast is by Buffet or Menu and is delicious to meet the needs and taste of every palate as there is a variety of foods to choose from.Lunch and Dinner could also be had there served by polite and helpful staff.The surrounding areas are lush and green and the swimming pool is a beautiful blue . Staff are always at hand to help if there is a need. The Beach with its golden sand is just outside the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Negambo, Sri Lanka as it is now safe and open for business. In my view the Heritance is a five Star Hotel and I will be returning with my sons and their families.
