Comfortable stay
The stay is comfortable and good. The staff needs to be pushed, but if you speak to any manager or supervisor they are very understanding and help.

dated hotel but spacious and nice rooms
Nice, clean and spacious room and bathroom. Hotel a bit dated, expected more premium quality for 4 stars and from the photos. Great breakfast but lunch (for an additional fee) portion was small and average. The beach is ok but not great.

Great place
Great hotel for the money. Great relaxing setting with well maintained grounds. Great beach and pool. Beach restaurant food was excellent as was the breakfast buffet. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Nightly entertainment was also provided in the form of live music. Would highly recommend. I didn't use the spa but prices seems a bit high compared to what you would find outside the hotel.

Great stay. Love the sorroundings. Was fun to walk on the beach and relax in the beautiful lounges. Internet was not working in room and buffet food could be better!

Nice Hotel on the Beach
My husband and I enjoyed our visit to The Palms. It was a convenient location as Beruwala is near (we walked to it but it was a hike). Relaxing, breakfast buffet was great, staff was helpful, but internet was only in the public area and even then only in certain areas in the public area.

2/10 Poor

Outdated Hotel, with terrible amenities
The Palms Hotel in Beruwela looks like it was built in the 70's and hasn't been updated since. The rooms are dirty, with antiquated furniture. The is no internet service available in the room. The Breakfast Buffet is the worst I have experienced in comparable Asian Hotels. The only saving grace is the friendly staff and great beach. Overall I cannot recommend this Hotel to anyone in good conscience - look elsewhere.
