I was at Hikkaduwa Mambo's for new years eve, and one guy got sucker punch in front of me, none of the hotel management do anything to help him or did nothing for the guy who punched him. So I don't reckon this place for anyone at all. Drinks are so expensive too.

I wasn't actually eating however the rest of the family was. They ordered pizza (I know.. In Sri Lanka!!) and it took an hour to arrive! The waiter was great about it however.. He gave us a free bowl of chips and kept informing us how long it'd take. They were very impressed with the pizza! Great atmosphere, busy happy... More

Nice beds and right on the beach. Our air conditioning wasn't working so it became crazy hot at night. Also the smell from the kitchen can be a bit overwhelming sometimes. Besides this it's a good place to stay in hikkaduwa.

After hearing so much about Mambo's from a good friend, I had to check this place out for myself (although I was a little hesitant initially as I was travelling solo). I was welcomed at the airport by Mambos' very own Driver, Sampath, who was an absolute delight to ride with for 3 hours from the airport to the guest... More

I am just coming back from a 10 night stay at Mambo's in Hikkaduwa and had a really great time there. I didn't ment to stay there for the whole time, because Hikkaduwa is a kind of busy place but as everyone in this team was so nice and care taking I always felt like coming home. The rooms are...

Mambos is a must visit when in hikka. During the day it provides the most relaxing atmosphere, delicious food, and the most friendly playful staff. It's right in front of a surf point and close to many others. You can rent boards, get surf lessons from its surf shop, and they'll let you store your board in the shop so... More

Black or local people are refuse or if you are lucky, charged 2000 Rs entrance, while whities are received as gods. Only after a half hour of debate with the manager (I am Belgian, my partner Indian), he was allowed inside. Later, other dark skin people were sent out, without reason whatsoever. Very sad for a place that pretends to... More

We stayed at this place for about 2 weeks. Although I was staying with my husband, but whenever I went down alone, the guys thought I am drunk and would try to flirt with me. I feel all the reviews here about this place are true. Food is very expensive and so are drinks. So during our stay we had... More
