We had a good 3 nigthts stay. As it was low season the service in the restaurant was very quick, also the kitchen staff did a great job. We enjoyed the pool very much and on the sun lounger beside you have a great sea view. Rooms were ok, it appeared to be overpriced but it's probably hikka standard. What... More

This place was not my first choice, but most of the highly rated accommodations in the area had no vacancies for the period of my family of five stay. I was hesitant after reading all the various reviews on this property, but with limited options decided on proceeding and booking the Queen Suite with Sea View. Sure this place has... More

We are 2 well experienced female travellers. At first it seemed lovely, staff were welcoming and the main area of the hotel looked lovely, right on the beach, swimming pool, lovely seating area, garden and restaurant. The rooms were very basic, and not clean for the price you pay, and the bed had bugs all over it. The toilet didn't... More

Located at the south side of Hikkaduwa at Narigama Beach we've stayed 1 week after 5 days island-tour. All rooms with beach view and balcony. Beautiful and quiet surrounding but only 5 to10 min walk to shopping boulevard and most frequented beach hotels and bars. Taxi and bus stand in front of the hotel at the main road. The room... More

This hotel looks out over a very beautiful, not-too-crowded beach on the south side of Hikkaduwa. The excellent pool and laid-back restaurant have great views of the ocean. The rooms are a bit dingy and dark, but definitely serviceable. Service is unusually bad here. The front desk manager was very cold when greeting us, not bothering to get off his... More

Location is excellent and views are fab, though rooms are old & shabby, TV does not work, room was 'cleaned' once in 5 days and only because we asked. Water pressure non exsist and had a strange bad smell. Bed comfortable but hotel needs TLC and some professional management.

We were there in the low season so had the place virtually to ourselves. Looked like they are renovating rooms. Ours was nicely done. We had the best room in the place with big 2 person spa and overlooking the pool and beach. It was beautiful. Had one drama one night with a party running late with loud Dance music,... More

We got taken here by a guy who met us on the train. It was clearly a bit of a con but the hotel is ok and we paid a reasonable price. The staff are a bit lazy and our room wasn't cleaned once in 4 days. This was ideal for the cockroach living in our plug hole. The pool... More

I was already in Hikkaduwa and wanted to change to a hotel with a pool since the sea is relatively rough and can be dangerous for swimming. I noted that Ranmal place with a relatively nice looking pool and also nice rooms in the right wing with side sea view. Ranmal is also a very pleasant person and showed me... More
