Affordable accommodation by the beach Jul 03, 2008
During my trip to Sri Lanka last December/January I stayed at the Blue Oceanic Beach Hotel in Negombo. We were brought to the hotel by taxi from the Airport in Colombo. The drive overthere was lovely already! It was early in the morning and we saw the people in the streets of Negombo getting ready for school/work. The hotel is situated at the beach. The location is therefor excellent! Its easy to find and close to the hotel you can find some small shops and restaurants for your basic need. Also very convenient! The hotel is not very modern and the rooms, especially the bathrooms could do with a good renovation. But other than that the stuff is not very new, it is very clean and the rooms are also quite spacious. That makes up for the fact the rooms are not very modern. My room had a nice balcony wich had a beach view wich was also very nice. The bed is pretty hard, not fluffy or anything, but that seems to be normal around there!

Breakfast, Lunch and dinner is served at the dining area near the entrance. For a Sri Lankan breakfast everything was very good. You get to choose how you want your omelet and a cook prepares it for you and brings it to your table. There is a large variety of bread and fruits also. For dinner you can choose from the menu but there are also theme-nights with matching buffets. On Sri Lankan night there was the traditional Sri Lankan food and there were shows by Sri Lankan dancers and there was a Sari contest where tourists could try on Sari's. This was very nice!

The Hotel has some facilities as a tourist shop, a spa where you can have ayurveda treatments and a jewelry shop where the Sri Lankan gemstones can be found. Sri Lanka is known for its gemstones. You can make an appointment at the reception if you want to use any of the faciliies from the spa.

There is also a pool at the hotel but I couldnt find it at first. When you get out of the hotel on the backside you have to go to the right and follow the path all the way to the right side of the hotel. Thats when I found out the hotel is much bigger than I thought. Here you can find a small pool and next to it you can find a bar where they serve snacks and drinks.

My overall opinion on the hotel is very good. The Location is nice because when you walk out of the hotel on the back you are standing on the beach! Its the backyard of the hotel. I didnt swim there but it was nice to see all the colourfull boats come by and see crabs in the sand! The palmtrees everywhere, great place to be. For the location and service the price is pretty good also. This hotel is very populair among the Dutch tourists that visit this part of Sri Lanka. When I was there the place was filled with Dutch people!

I've just completed a 100km trek round Sri Lanka seeing some of the most beautiful countryside around and at the end of my trek I decided to have a couple of days of relaxation. This hotel was great and did the trick.

The room was amazing with a ocean view, the staff very friendly and the food choices were numerous and irresistably delicious. I went for the all-inclusive package, which was very reasonable and included all meals and local drinks/soft drinks. The hotel has a big pool, well equipped gym, beauty salon (where they do very cheap haircuts), Ayurveda treatment centre and is only a short walk from local shops and the centre of town. The other good thing about this hotel is that it's by the beach and only 20 minutes away from the airport.

I stayed here on my own and was made to feel very welcome. Would definitely go back myself and would also recommend this to other travellers, who are looking for a not too expensive but very amenable hotel. I had a great time here and all my requirements were met.
