Pleasant hotel with good food”

Good food

I booked this sensibly priced hotel in Negombo as it is close to the airport to finish our two week tour of Sri Lanka. We liked the Goldi Sands as it was clean, modern and airy in a nice setting on the beach with a pool. The staff were also pleasant and helpful. Only negative: Recommend you buy a can of mozzie spray for the room.

great value for money”

good matresses, nice people, great patio/restaurant, located on the beach, restaurants/bars/tourist shops all around.

The hotel is well worth the money, especially compared to some of the other hotels we stayed at. Our room, was a cheaper room non sea view, this meant however that it was on the street with quite a lot of traffic, next time i'd pay a bit more to get a quieter room. The town itself was not one of my favorites, but it is very close to the airport so we only stayed there to catch our early morning flight the next day. Lots of tourists seem to arrive or depart from Negombo, and if you do choose to go to Negombo Goldi Sands is a good place to do it.

Beach Hotel near the airport”

Beautiful modern pool, nice view of the Indian Ocean, reasonable prices

We contracted with a Sri Lankan tour agency, Go Lanka Holidays, for a six day/five night tour of the country with driver and car. Both before and after our trip we stayed at the Goldi Sands Beach Hotel. It is relatively close to the airport. We took advantage of the beautiful pool both times. The included breakfast was very nice. Free Wi-Fi was available in the lobby only. The room was quite nice with a balcony view of the pool and ocean. Our only criticism was that the AC did not work well during the day. Our hall porter told us that it was because the entire building was cooled by one central unit that needed to be turned on (which he did).

Great place to relax”

The layout and facilities of this hotel make it a great place to relax in and enjoy. The ground floor lobby, restaurant and bar is open to the air. The restaurant and bar face out directly to rows of palm trees, broad beach and open ocean. You can sit in the shade of the palm trees, watch the wooden outrigger sailing boats plying the sea for fish, sip cocktails and take an occasional dip in the pool or ocean (though it's not a great swimming beach). The rooms are clean and well presented. There is a buffet dinner each night which we didn't find it to be impressive or good value, but there are lots of restaurants nearby. If in Negombo, I would certainly choose to stay again.

Nice End to an Amazing Holiday in Sri Lanka”

Nice beach, excellent breakfast, close to airport while being at a lovely beach

We enjoyed our stay here. Staff was friendly, pool was great. There are birds around the general beach area (ravens, so this is something you'd find at any hotel in Negombo. This hotel is on the outskirts of many high price and touristy places. easy walking distance so not too far, but there's also some smaller shops and family-owned restaurants. Best choice in Negombo. We were there with our 23m old daughter who loved it.

We stayed in the Goldi Sands for one night as our party were travelling to Sri Lanka from different places. It was very good value for money. We had chosen the value non-seaview rooms so obviously did not have a view. But the rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly.

Good for its price”

Private beach, good location, big suites

We arrived at Negombo at night and went straight to the resort for a rest. The standard size room was pretty good, but we had a very uncomfortable sleep. The pillows were not soft and the linens were very rough (I'm not one of those who seek a luxurious travel so when I mention about the linens, trust me that it's really coarse). Worst of all, they didn't have a blanket! Just a pathetic sheet of (rough) thin linen. I felt extremely cold throughout the night with the temperatures turned up and fan turned down. It must have been the worst sleep I've had in all my travels. The next day, my partner and I considered shifting out of Goldi Sands. The staff were very helpful and attentive to our concerns, assuring that they will do whatever it takes to make our trip more enjoyable (which they delivered on their promise). We also upgraded ourselves (with additional fees) to a suite and that was where our holiday truly began. Location: good location, walking distance along the Negombo stretch of restaurants and cafe. Breakfast: don't expect much from their breakfast. Opt for the string hoppers and curries (traditional Sri Lankan breakfast). I enjoyed that the most among the spread of food. Beach: quiet and peaceful; it was lovely. some (appointed) vendors will approach you to sell stuff, but they don't mean anything bad.

i stayed one night after leading a conference in kandy. i have stayed here before, and knew that the rooms and the food are very nice. i had a room with a huge balcony and a view of the ocean. some rooms only have partial view of the ocean, facing the pool. rooms on the 2nd floor have smaller balconies. when i arrived, i had some trouble finding a free sunbed. a common disturbance in negombo is that vendors are very persistent and that they are allowed into the hotel area. i was very pleased with my stay, and hope to return again.

it has a beautiful beachfront vista from the rooms with balcony. however, compared to other countries ive stayed in, the prices were a little less competitive. the big quiet beach is right on the doorstep. very good deck chairs are provided. however, there were many birds/crows and a few of the deck chairs were riddled with bird poop. you run the small risk having your food eaten by the crows and chipmunks on the property. a little far (10min walk) from the touristy bars and beach cafes on negombo. a 200rp tutuk ride takes you into the main town as well. surprisingly near the airport at colombo.

Good starting point”

good pool and beach chairs

We stayed here 3 nights on arrival in Sri Lanka as Negombo is near the airport. The hotel is right on the beach and although the water is dirty and you would not swim in it it was pleasant enough to sit on the sand and swim in the pool. The room was a reasonable size with a large balcony. Everything was clean and the room was well set up. There are plenty of places to eat nearby. Negombo is a much better starting point than Colombo.

Great value beach hotel”

On the beach, spacious rooms, very affordable

Overall, great value for a beach hotel. Spacious, clean rooms with ample amenties. Friendly staff, though not very fluent in English. Good choice of local and internal dishes on menu. Themed buffet nights at only around 15USD. Negombo town is 8 mins by Tuk Tuk (around 300 rupees or under 3 USD).

Good hotel for short relaxation”

Not far from the airport

We decided to stop at Negombo right after we landed. Goldi Sands is a decent hotel with good location, staff are helpful and they have lovely pool area. The room is decent but it could need some maintenance, as it's getting a bit old. We like the bathroom, quite cool. Breakfast is decent. You can walk on the beach to get the feeling of this little fisherman town, or walk along the side-road for numbers of restaurants and shopping.
