The rooms are quite bare. Sparsely furnished. Clean enough. No toiletries. Fresh sheets. Good shower. Air-conditioned. Not much else to write home about. We stayed here only because we dived at the Poseidon Diving Station and thought it might be convenient enough to change and shower, etc. The restaurant attached is strictly okay, nothing great. Alcohol is served, but no... More

Perfect place to stay for those who are looking for friendly company and great diving center. Here you definitely get both :) Good accommodation for the good price, with breakfast :) yet we were not there food, but for diving. Everything is very well organized, under strict supervision of the professionals!

Stayed at Poseidon for 6 nights while getting the Padi Open Water certificate. It's pricy, has a great chef and really nice staff! The room we lived in were really clean but the beds were a little to hard for me (186cm/87kg). It's located at the far north of Hikka, but for Rs 100 for a tuctuc you get to... More

I was there for one day and was able to do 3 dives with them. loved the fact their pretty close to most dive sites and staff was very friendly and attension to detail. Only downside was that you have to go and do all the dives in a small fibreglass boat, which is pretty rough during the dive intervals... More

This was the first time i did scuba and simply enjoyed it. There service was great and they allowed different levels of Divers to dive together. The Beach infront of the Hotel and Dive shop is small but really nice.With an area of confined water that allows you to swim without getting tossed and turned by the breaking waves.

We had 4 really nice dives in Hikkaduwa, in a clear water, with a fantastic visibility. I had my first wreck dive there and I really enjoyed it, thanks to the staff and the perfect weather conditions!

Yet another great vacation at this Diving Station. A PADI 5 star dive centre that stands up to its rating. Excellent centre for learning to SCUBA dive with superb instructors & facilities such as an enclosed coral reef for doing confined water dives. Diving very relaxing with nothing too strenuous, even when there is a current it is not too... More

I stayed 4 nights in Hikkaduwa at the Poseidon Dive Centre for the purpose of diving. the chef, the hotel staff and the dive staff are all fantastic and I had a great time. The rooms however are very, very basic. I believe I was in one of the NON renovated rooms which may explain this. The simple room was... More

I've heard about Poseidon thru some friends, who visited Hikkaduwa last Dec. This might not be the most posh place, but I felt very well treated by the diving instructors, staff and all the local people hanging around. I had my first trail dive here, and felt I was in very good hands. Amazing experience, which might have coloured my... More
