Once a 70s resort, Trinco Blu by Cinnamon was transformed to a retro-chic design decorated with bleached wooden decks, cut cement floors, rattan furniture and denim trimmings with a splash of orange to contrast the Blue and White hues.

We stayed for 3 nights last month as part of a group and on arrival were greeted with cold towels and a drink; we were upgraded to the beachside chalets which were well appointed and comfortable with a veranda overlooking the sea and sunbeds. The restaurant food was excellent

Stray dogs roam the beach and chalet area. And they defecate on the beach. One cannot leave food on balcony as it is will be dive bombed by several of the hundreds of rooks that frequent the complex. The hotel accommodation is showing signs of wear and could be cleaner.

Facilities at the hotel are fine, though the décor is a little stark for my taste. The location next to the lovely beach is excellent. Highlight for us was the whale watching trip run by the hotel. A very knowledgeable guide and skilful skipper resulted in us spending about an

Staci : We went through Ceylon Roots travels and our Driver was not only given accommodation they were also provided meals at Trinco Blu. At most of the other hotels in Sri Lanka they certainly provide a place for the Driver to bunk down and some of them provide free meals. Infact, I discussed this with our driver/s and he stated that he has been driving around Ceylon for years and most Hotels kindly provide both (Dinner/Bed or Breakfast/Bed) as a courtesy for bringing guests to their hotel. Having said that, we as the tourist/traveler, should always provide the Driver with coffee, tea or drinks during long trips as well. We also provided our Driver with a sandwich or pastry for lunch when we took off to a restaurant. Try P&S (Perera & Sons - costs pennies for us!!) which is like a MacDee's for washroom and snack stops. Our Driver's were very appreciative of us not just looking after ourselves but offering him snacks or sweets or drinks whilst he drove long distances. They went the extra mile to show us places of interest as well as advised us of potential pitfalls when making purchases or trying exotic fare. A regular Driver would not do so if he was not taken care of or appreciated. We had 3 different drivers / vehicles (Toured for 1 month) and all of them said the same thing - this is not a one off! Treat them with respect and kindness and they will bend backwards to make sure you are happy in your travels!! Hope this helps.

Hi, Thank you very much for the detailed post. Your review and a few past reviews have helped me to plan my trip better. My family and I (6 adults and our 9 months old baby) are travelling to trincomalee for 3nights as a part of our family vacation. The cigarette smoke in the room alarmed me of the serious issues there can be in the ventilation / ac systems especially with having an infant with us. The other reason being I having a number of previous comments on cats, dogs and crows in the dining area/ restaurant raises serious concerns about hygiene and the level of attentiveness of the hotel management. ( This unhygenic environment can make some one ill and even cause serious health) I cant thank you enough for this review and I have clearly made up my mind on NOT TO STAY at this hotel. (the content on the reviews are stressing me already, imagine what it will be to face the scenario with a 9 month old baby) I think the hotel management is just copy pasting a general response and have not taken adequate time and effort to personally address the concerns raised in the feedback. The cats,dogs and the crows in the restaurant has been posted over a long period of times by multiple number of guests. This shows how badly this property is managed. Im affiliated with the presidents office and I will assure the relevant government authorities visit the premises and provide a detailed report. I will publish it on TripAdvisor for perusal of the future users. Thank you soo much and thank you all for the valuable feedback and TripAdvisor for having a platform that protects travelers from such situations. Many Thanks
Hi, I was there with my 7 month old baby. There were two cats in the restaurant, but I had no issue with them.

I would just like to know if you can snorkel directly in front of the hotel.
Yes you can certainly snorkel at the beach. There is not a LOT to see there but the water is calm enough to be able to swim around and see some fish. Have a great trip!!
