stay here! 😀
Superb stay! The staff were friendly & helpful & the hotel has a relaxed feel that makes it hard to leave! The beach area is accessed via a short alleyway & if you ask at reception, they will put an umbrella up by the sun loungers for you. The only thing that can be improved is the Wi-fi connection inside the room.

2/10 Poor

Awful place, WiFi advertised was so slow it unusable. Electrics in room dependent on let putting in slot but every hour you needed to remove card and renter meaning during night aircon would turn off. Around pool there are ponds of stagnent water which attract mosquitoes so pool is unusable. Worst still is in heavy rain these ponds overflow into pool contaminating pool water. Breakfast dry, bland, cold and inedible. Worst food we have had in Sri Lanka by a long way. Booked excursion to see dolphins. Told to be in reception for 5:50am.arrived at 5:45 and made ourselves known, told to wait and tour company would pick us up by bus to take us to beech. At 6:10am no tour company but told on way. 6:30 still no tour company and then told that the boat had broken down. Then told to come back next day. Explained that was impossible as we were leaving at 8am but had to argue over getting a refund. Eventually they agreed and asked me to comeback at 7am asked to come back at 7:30" refused so they refunded and apologised for failing to book with tour company so the boat breaking down was a lie. Due to this we missed going out to see dolphins which was the main reason we came to trinco

We arrived after a long journey and were glad we picked this hotel for our first night stay. Just a 1 minute walk to the beach was great as was the onsite swimming pool. We ate at the hotel and could not fault the meal, presentation or the staff. The personal sitting out area outside the room was also a nice touch. Staff were excellent. All in all a good choice.

relaxing stay and would recommend it to others
We stayed here out of season and had a great time. The staff could not do enough for us. As it was out of season all food was to order which made a nice change from the huge breakfast buffets at other hotels. There are quite a few local bars and restaurants to get good food as well within walking distance. Good large swimming pool with some seating around and a short walk to the beach. A great sandy beach a delight to swim / body surf on it. The gardens are gorgeous with the most beautiful flowers and well maintained. They regularly spray to keep down the mosquitos - we had no problems while we were there with them. Some of the decor is a little weather worn but as they were out of season they were doing some work on it. The finish is the bathroom is not good with incomplete seals on the showers therefore I managed to flood the bathroom, partly because of the force of the shower as it was great. Wifi - they seem to have 2 networks so if you want to use it in your room and the bar / restaurant log in to both. Overall we had a very relaxing stay here and would recommend it to others.

Great location
Very nice room in a beautiful location. Staff all very nice and helpful. Breakfast was pretty good, a mixture of western and Eastern buffet and fresh made omelets. Dinner was average but 3 times the price of the local restaurants which are tastier in my opinion.

Awesome relaxing stay in clean hotel
We booked this hotel for a couple of days to just relax. It has a great pool and beach is a two minute walk. Both have beds for hotel users only. As it was very quiet when we were there, we had such a relaxing stay! The rooms were very spacious, comfortable and clean. We unfortunately had a room next to reception and it was very noisy ealry in the morning as guest left and arrived and we heard the reception phone ringing all the time. Rooms aren't very soundprove. Location was perfect for us. There are plenty of restaurants and beach bars around and also a small supermarket within a 2 min walk. Overall, very good stay for a very reasonable price. Just try to get a room away from reception.
