6/10 Good

Lovely location. Need to watch for beach parties!
Have stayed here on many previous occasions and keep coming back. This occasion was marred by music on the beach side of the property which did not stop until past midnight. This certainly disturbed our sleep before an early morning flight. Otherwise, recent renovations have improved bathrooms and AC. Decent breakfast. Lovely location on the beach with good pool. Still too expensive for category, yet we keep coming back as very near to airport and on the beach. Food outlets plentiful on the street outside. Did find staff rather sheepish compared to previous stays over the last decade. I believe that there has been a recent change in management and the adjoining Don's Beach Hotel has separated from the Golden Star Beach Hotel.

Well positioned Hotel, relatively close to the airport, tour guides, shops, and restaurants. Right on the beach. Room cleaning staff, food preparation and service staff were great, reception staff were not so great - not knowing much or appearing distracted. All most all staff eager to help. My room was quiet, with thick walls, ceiling and floors. Air-conditioner essential for comfort and worked well as well as being quiet. Room clean but a little bit dated, bathroom big with marble appearance tiles. Pool was popular for others, the water appeared green to me. Hawkers selling their wares on the beach were annoying, and security didn't do much to stop them. Took about three occasions saying "No thank you" before they would leave you alone.

Silver star for the Golden Star Beach Hotel.
The hotel was fair for the price & is very close to the beach. It is not a luxury hotel by any stretch, however, it is appealing from the outside and is of a fair condition inside. Good service, however we struggled to find the hotel as the sign that reads ‘Golden Star Beach Hotel’ is engraved into a rock that is not illuminated, so we actually drove past the hotel thinking it was a different hotel.

Sand, sea and location
I have stayed here on many occasions over the years and am always taken by the tranquil location/environment beside the sea yet with multiple eateries in the near locality. Access to the airport is easy as is a trip by bus to the city of colombo. No issues with the hotel itself either. However the hotel used to offer free WiFi throughout but this has now stopped. Breakfast was fine but outside breakfast, food is expensive for the category of hotel.
