10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Good, super clean place. Very comfortable room and clean washrooms. dinner and breakfast was served by them it was very delicious. Y’all you try their cuttlefish dish
Cons: Nothing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything! The price, the hospitality, the location, the food. The owner Prabha helped us with everything we needed or wanted. We requested for local flavoured breakfast and lunch and were treated to an absolute feast. He also hooked us up with a great deal for dolphin watching. Unbelievable how many dolphins we were able to see! Thanks to Prabha and his staffs for the 5 star service :)
Cons: Nothing whatsoever
5.0 Okay
Pros: Friendly hosts. The property is very close to the beach (not exactly on the beach). We loved meeting guests from different countries.
Cons: When we arrived, the hotel had no power. The power had been off all day. The hotel didn't have a backup generator. It was hot, so no power meant no A/C, lights in the room, power outlets to charge devices, etc. They told us it would be back on at 5p. The power came back eventually came back on at 6:30p. One of the criteria for booking this hotel was close to the beach and A/C. The owners did not offer any compensation to make up for not having A/C all day. The hotel is close to the beach. It has an obstructed view of the beach as there is another property directly on the beach in front of this hotel. In addition, I felt a bit unsafe because directly on the beach in front of our hotel was a temporary camp for migrating fisherman. They lived under a make shift shelter from April to October. It felt like homeless people were living next to us at the hotel. Nothing bad happened, it just left me with an unsafe feeling. The location is not very good for walking to places at night for dinner nearby. The host said we could walk out to the main road and head right about a 1km to find some restaurants. We did that, but didn't have much luck finding anything where we could sit down to eat. It was dark and walking along the main road with the traffic felt dangerous. I Note the hotel serves dinner with many seafood options. The menu was overpriced for Sri Lankan food. We knew we could get dinner for a 1/10 of the prices, so we ventured out at night. f I had an opportunity to do it again, I would have hired a three-wheel taxi to take us to a sit down restaurant. The bathroom heats up and is humid and sticky after showering. Then you open the door to the bedroom and all that heat escapes into the bedroom. The bathroom needs a better way to regulate the temperature of the water coming out of the shower and a way to let all that hot air escape to the outside without going into the bedroom.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hospitality was outstanding! The host speaks German and English and does everything to make your stay in Trincomalee is as perfect as possible. He supports you with everything you plan and do. You should try his dinner as he is a great cook! The rooms are super clean, large and comfortable. For sure one of the best accommodations in Sri Lanka! A huge thanks and we‘d love to come back.
Cons: The beach nearby is not really clean - you should rent a scooter and drive to Nilaveli beach. Not a problem at all.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff is amazing. Territory of the hotel is beautiful. Ambience around is magic. The pool is so nice, great for photoshoots. It’s a pity that it’s only one pool there. Our room was clean, the service is fast and friendly. We ordered snorkeling through the hotel - it was great experience.
Cons: I expected that the territory of the hotel will be bigger (Photos on website gives such impression). Also, as per pictures, I thought that sand on the beach is white, actually it’s not. The food in the hotel is fine, but a-la cart Menu is quite short. The hotel has buffet on Fridays and it is amazing. The Gym definitely needs to be improved, I took my sportswear and changed my mind to use it.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Amazing staff, beach room, beach. Wonderful bbq on the beach too
Cons: The food at the restaurant was not great, especially the buffet food
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The food was amazing! The beach is beautiful, clean and quiet, and the staff were beyond helpful and friendly.

10.0 Excellent

9.2 Excellent
Pros: - we stayed in the beach chalet which was stunningly decorated and very large. Super comfortable beds, very large bathrooms and a lovely sit out. We also had a private little walkway straight onto the beach - the private beach was super clean and peaceful and the water was clean blue and a wonderful temperature for taking a dip - the breakfast was one of the best I've ever had at a hotel in recent memory. The dinner at the beach was also unforgettable! Divine food and ambience - staff were extremely warm and made us feel very well taken care of - Bluetooth speaker provided in our room was a real plus!
Cons: - A little far from everything else in the area which means one has to largely remain in the hotel during the stay
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The swimming pool and common areas were gorgeous. Beautifully designed integrating trees and vines.
Cons: The lagoon villas can hear and see the road
7.1 Good
Pros: It was clean and cosy and relaxing. There was spend a lot of time in details around the resort.
Cons: Lagoon cabins are two stories and very noisy and you hear your neighbours walking and talking everywhere. The pictures on booking.com for the lagoon cabins are not the lower part of the cabins we had and we did feel a bit dissapointed. We also thought it was a private cabin like the others (beach and jungle cabins). The food is not that great compared to the very expensive price

Cons: There is nothing i didn't like, its a shame they are not closer to the beach
9.2 Excellent

8.3 Excellent

Very close to the beach and the main street
10.0 Excellent

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff and owner. A short walk to the beach and plenty of restaurants close by. Good wifi. The breakfast is also very nice.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful cabins with swing and hammock right outside. The rooms (we stayed in Happiness). Really well equipped with place to hang your clothes, drying line, good sized bathroom and even a hairdryer. The bed was big and so comfy. The couple who own the homestay take great pride in it and this really comes across. The place is beautifully kept and the breakfast at their little cafe was delicious. It’s about a 5 minute walk to the beach through the back streets which brings you right out by Fernandos bar which is the best place on the beach. Highly recommend to stay here in Uppuveli.
Cons: The only small negative is that you need to keep the curtains closed to have privacy while in the cabin as people walk right outside but it didn’t really bother us.
7.5 Good
Pros: Breakfast is good. Next to the seaside. Extremely comfortable bed. Nice staff.
Cons: When we arrived electricity was off. Actually the blackout involved the whole city, but that was explained to us as if it was normal, with no apologies or trying to fix it. Room is quite small. Could have been cleaner. No free drinking water, tea, coffee etc. Rain made the whole ground in front of the room very muddy, it was almost impossible to get in. Overall it's not worth the money.

Pros: It's a simple accomodation with all you basically needs. Grace is very friendly and helpful person. I had an fantastic chinese food experience at my stay;-)
9.2 Excellent
Cons: We loved this GH because even though everything is simple is definetely made with taste and love. Both, the Chinese-Senhal couple that runs the place and their dogs spread positive vibes around the place and that's just what we needed at that moment in our trip, after an exhausting bus trip from Jaffna. We also liked the location, very close to the Dutch fort, the lovely Dutch bay beach with crystal water (literally 4 min from the GH by foot) and aldo to local and cheap restaurants and the fish market. The shared kitchen was definitely a plus for us since we could buy stuff in the market and prepare nice dinner at the hotel. We really felt like at home. Thank you so much guys!

Cons: The hostel itself Is really nice: comfortable rooms, free kitchen, nice garden, perfect location (beach front, close to Fernando). The problem Is the owner: so rude,mad and aggressive. He kicked me and other 3 guys out of the hostel under the Rain insulting us because apparently we did something wrong (a guy Who was checkin out asked for having a shower coming back from diving to the owner, he said yes and he took It in my room with my permission. When the owner started to attack us for that we immediately apologized because we didn t realise It was wrong, but he was shouting more and more and becoming more aggressive, attacking Also 2 other guys Who Just asked to calm down. He insulted us 4 in a unbelievable way and kicked us out under the rain going on shouting at us really bad words. It was Just shocking.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great place. You got your own terrace, since the rooms are actually little bungalows attached to each other. Peaceful at night and close to most restaurants and bars. 1min walk to the beach. Owner acted responsibly and after a couple of warnings he kicked my roommate out since she was letting a man in our room - Female dormitory room. He's very responsible and always ready to help.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view of the lake was spectacular. Nice to take a break from beach front saying that it was a 2minute walk away. The over all feel of the hotel felt exclusive and kept it gardens traditional.
7.0 Good
Pros: Nice garden, only 10 mins from the ocean beach by foot, many restaurants walking distance around.
Cons: Rooms on the photos while booking differ from rooms in reality: be aware that you'll probably get another room (not that floor, not that view; but the same price).
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Lovely and quiet in the hotel. Staff couldn’t do enough for us at all times.
Cons: The track leading up to the hotel is strewn with litter. I understand it isn’t the hotels responsibility but first impressions are important and it does not create a good one. Guests also have to walk that track when leaving the hotel to go to the beach and it is not pleasant.
10.0 Excellent

Cons: The wifi didn’t work well
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed this hotel very much. Our room was light, spacious and clean. The gardens and pool area were lovely. We had the buffet breakfast which was excellent. It is good not to be on the beach as the hotel is more peaceful for it, there is very short walk directly from the hotel down a private path to the beach. A great location for cafes and restaurants. A long walk or short tuk tuk trip into Trincomalee.
Cons: The event meal prices were very high.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: - Great breakfast (especially if you chose to eat the local food! maybe you could add some fresh juices!) - Great location - Fantastic pool and a beautiful garden (no need to collect leaves every day, instead please help to collect all the plastic on the beach and no only on the beach in front of the hotel!) - Great staff but please you should employ more women :)
Cons: - The taxes are not included in the price on booking - you need to read in-between the lines... - We tried the burgers and fries - but it is all frozen food. Better to eat local food!

Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location is fantastic - the hotel backs directly onto the beach. We had a room looking directly onto the beach, and slept at night with the soothing sound of the waves against the shore. The beach is small, nice to swim in, and there are outcrops of rock with a bit of coral and reef fish - good for snorkelling! In July 2019 there were only a few tourists but a lot of local activity: the fishermen set out in the evenings and arrive early in the morning with their catch - a very poetic setting. A/C very good.
Cons: Nothing - and this is particularly due to the very kind and attentive staff, the manager Kathira and his assistant Moses - they have a quiet and smiling way to bring you a sun bed mattress before you even thought of it, or bring you tea or coffee free of charge when you most want it. The owners are doing very well by giving the freedom to their manager to make these small decisions of kindness and allowing him to fill the hotel with his great soul. WiFi can be a bit slow, it is best in the early morning.”
9.2 Excellent
Cons: Super kind and helpful staff (Kathira), perfect location on the beach.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff was absolutely amazing. Great location with a beautiful beach. Paradise on earth. The breakfast was delicious
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Such a lovely setting right on the beach. Beautiful Seaview from our room. Lovely area to sit on the balcony outside our room to have breakfast and watch fisherman drag in their nets. Very welcoming staff. Great breakfast. Lovely strolling along to the old fort and temple early evening. Limited in decent restaurants nearby. But managed at one on the beach it was okay.
Cons: Not many restaurants nearby. No other complaints. Lovely stay Fairly basic and you had to go down short flight of stairs to bathroom, but really not a problem.
7.9 Good
Pros: Very helpful owner, he's trying to fulfil any wishes of the guests. Breakfast is also nice.
Cons: A bit overpriced, you pay for the location, which is beautiful, though. The Room is beautiful, but very small. The shared bathrooms are not perfectly clean, but okay. Actually there is not much difference to a usual hostel for 20$ per night, just the location.
5.8 Okay
Cons: I disliked this hotel as they didn't serve us breakfast. The communication between management and staff is quite bad. It was very expensive and they accused booking.com of having high fees.
7.0 Good
Pros: Mr Kadira was a wonderful host.

Cons: the description and the Pictures from hotel
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great staff right on the beach and lovely breakfast
Cons: Needs some shade area on beach
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were fantastic. The accommodation was right on the beach. The breakfast was plentiful and really good. There are some restaurants within walking distance of the accommodation which were cheap and good.
Cons: The room we had had no window however that was not a problem as we only used the room to sleep in. We spent the rest of the time on the beach or out and about.

Pros: Every service , Food and Hospitality of staffs were super and nice~! Specially Mr.Jathu and Mr.Amuthan were so friendly and nice to us. If you visit Nilavelli and Pigeon Island, Come to this Hotel~! No regret!
10.0 Excellent
Cons: Very good and friendly staff
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The best thing is the friendly can do attitude of the staff - no request is trouble for them. For a young family the place was perfect with the pool just outside the guest rooms and a generally safe enclosed area. Breakfast is simple but fine - a choice between Sri Lankan or Western with a juice and tea or coffee. The location is good, at the top of Nilaveli beach road a 600 meter walk to the public beach although the road does get very busy with buses transporting people to and from the beach.
Cons: The journey to and from the beach isn't exactly pleasant as you have to make way for big, noisy (and usually speedy) busses - week days are better than weekends. Waiting times for meals or special requests could be a bit faster - but the staff are always doing their best for you.
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were in Tobiko from September 16 to October 4. If you are looking for a luxury hotel, then need to look something else. Iif you are looking for comfort, a homely warm atmosphere, Tobiko is the best choice. Stunningly responsive, attentive, kind owner. He'll help you with any question. He helped my wife organize a surprise for my birthday. He also arranges airport transfers and helps with excursions. The accommodation includes breakfast, local cuisine was bit spicy for us. You can cook in the hotel kitchen yourself. Or ask them to cook from your products. Lunch or dinner is also available. I would like to return here because of the owners, staff and location. The hotel is 20 meters from the beach. The beach is wild, without umbrellas and sunbeds. Not very clean, the ocean is a bit restless, but warm and without jellyfish. The rains were short, the weather was hot and sunny. There are many restaurants nearby that can be reached by tuk tuk for 150 rupees. We recommend Eastern Lanka Restaurant and Gomesz Pasta Hut. There are also supermarkets nearby. The one next to Eastern Lanka is better because it is big. You can also go to Cargills Food City in Trincomalee. Thanks again to Jacob for a great vacation.

Pros: Close to the beach, great pool, huge room
Cons: No wifi in the rooms, our double bed was two beds pushed together and our shower head didn’t work.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The property sets this location apart from all others in Trincomalee. The hotel surrounded by trees gives you a feeling of being within a forest. Also the staff is extremely friendly and customer oriented. Food is brilliant specially the seafood which is there specialty
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely hotel with great staff. It is expensive to eat and drink there, but you will have a wonderful quality time there. Advise you to go to Pigeon Island and do some snockling.
Cons: It was very expensive.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: both good
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fab location on gorgeous stretch of beach. Get the right room and you literally run out onto the beach, service was impeccable and staff friendly. The hotel is well laid out over attractive grounds, never feels anything other than quite intimate, other than a gym it has all the facilities you’d expect - and lots of trips and tours etc can be organised as well as snorkelling off a nearby nature reserve island (zPigeon Island) and it has a fun scuba school in its grounds too.
Cons: It is a resort, so it ps not convenient fir anything than itself ! Once you’re in, you will probably spend all your time here, which is not a problem if like us you needed or wanted a beach break, but the prices reflect that you are a bit of a captive audience - not the rooms, the food and drink. WiFi is localised to a central area and doesn’t reach individual rooms.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The beach..the pool...the location just off Pigeon Island....the Staff....and pretty much everything else was good..
Cons: The bed and pillows were a little too soft. A little firmer would be preferable. The spa was over 2km away from the hotel....
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice and clean hotel, nice service and good location. Beach is good for swim, big waves. Safe to park cars, becouse all the area is guarded.

But honestly the price per night was amazing. - The bed was comfortable - It had the feeling of a hotel room - The shower was warm and had amazing water pressure - The AC was very cold - Parking on site - It had a ceiling fan too if you needed - The fact that you could use the pool at their sister hotel Amaranthé was amazing.

Beach was very clean (as well as the whole facility). The rooms we got had sea view (propably we'd been lucky thanks to low season) and were very clean. Breakfast was delicious.
Cons: Dinner Menu contained only a few local dishes. It may be a a personal thing, but I don't want to eat European Food like Italian Pizza, when I visit a country offering so many delicious meals like Sri Lanka. There's not much to do, when it rains.

Pros: The view of the lake was spectacular. Nice to take a break from beach front saying that it was a 2minute walk away. The over all feel of the hotel felt exclusive and kept it gardens traditional.
7.0 Good
Pros: Nice garden, only 10 mins from the ocean beach by foot, many restaurants walking distance around.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Lovely and quiet in the hotel. Staff couldn’t do enough for us at all times.
Cons: The track leading up to the hotel is strewn with litter. I understand it isn’t the hotels responsibility but first impressions are important and it does not create a good one. Guests also have to walk that track when leaving the hotel to go to the beach and it is not pleasant.

Cons: I expected that the territory of the hotel will be bigger (Photos on website gives such impression). Also, as per pictures, I thought that sand on the beach is white, actually it’s not. The food in the hotel is fine, but a-la cart Menu is quite short. The hotel has buffet on Fridays and it is amazing. The Gym definitely needs to be improved, I took my sportswear and changed my mind to use it.

We also had a private little walkway straight onto the beach - the private beach was super clean and peaceful and the water was clean blue and a wonderful temperature for taking a dip - the breakfast was one of the best I've ever had at a hotel in recent memory. The dinner at the beach was also unforgettable! Divine food and ambience - staff were extremely warm and made us feel very well taken care of - Bluetooth speaker provided in our room was a real plus!
Cons: - A little far from everything else in the area which means one has to largely remain in the hotel during the stay

Pros: The swimming pool and common areas were gorgeous. Beautifully designed integrating trees and vines.
Cons: The lagoon villas can hear and see the road
7.1 Good
Pros: It was clean and cosy and relaxing. There was spend a lot of time in details around the resort.
Cons: Lagoon cabins are two stories and very noisy and you hear your neighbours walking and talking everywhere. The pictures on booking.com for the lagoon cabins are not the lower part of the cabins we had and we did feel a bit dissapointed. We also thought it was a private cabin like the others (beach and jungle cabins). The food is not that great compared to the very expensive price
