Across the road from Bus Station - handy for town, 10 walk City Beach
Locks up at 9pm
I was living for a year inside the Palm Beach and service was excellent and food great.... in the town there are several options but if you look at same time a place friendly and for sometime you look instead of the spicy Sri Lankan food but to have a break with a proper italian meal, than Palm Beach is the place.
Light and airy with a gentle sea breeze.
Right on the beach, which sloped very gently. It took ages to get into deep water, but there was a pool for swimming. The facilities have been restored following the tsunami.
The hotel was clean and tidy. The rooms were huge and cool with good a/c. Cleaning was unobtrusive and then there was the bar with timber panelling and a sattelite TV. Communications can be a bit difficult but the manager is most helpful..
It was great to have breakfast on the terrace looking across the bay, and it was great to have dinner on the terrace with a cool breeze to take away the heat of the day and keep the mosquitoes and flies at bay. Sun, sea, and a cold beer. What more could you ask for?
Trinco is severely lacking in accomodation, although this is rapidly changing. A five star hotel is apparently in the planning stages and several more modest guesthouses are opening up.
If you wander around the streets off from the town centre then there are a few small guesthouses - not sure about the quality. The most well known place is 7 Islands hotel, which has recently been refurbished. It's on Orr's Hill Road, at the northern end of the Inner Harbour and has some rooms with a view of the bay. Costs used to be about $5 a night, I assume it's probably increased since the refurb.
