We stayed at Sunbeach in January and found it a very average hotel. If you are staying on the lower floor beware of the echoing noise that travels along the corridor. Throughout the night we were woken by doors slamming, people knocking on each other's doors and loud talking. The TV is located at the front where the corridor begins... More

There are several issues raised in this letter. In terms of noise i the corridor to the rooms downstairs – usually our guests are very considerate and we have few complaints of people enjoying themselves. There are rarely are noise issues at Sunbeach and if we are told we are happy to have a diplomatic word with the other guests... More

Very good food and you cant get any closer to the surfspots on the beach whitout getting wet. The staff is very friendly and you feel more invited to someones home instead of a room at a hotel. Our son (9) learned more english from the friendly staff in one week than he would have done in school home in... More

The location is just perfect: right in front of the surf spots! It is really ideal for surfers. We had the standard room with Fan which might be a bit overpriced. It was almost clean as they should get rid off the spider webs in the ceiling once in a while... it is the only hotel in that area with... More

Beautiful beachside retreat. I'd only recommend the beach front rooms as the others are very basic and don't get much light. Very nice cocktails on the beach and friendly staff. No real reception however so don't expect too many travel tips etc.

My partner and I shared the most delicious feast of local curries at this restaurant. By far the best food we have experienced in Sri Lanka. It is clear that the happy chef is an expert. We encourage everyone to try it...you will be so impressed.

Came straight here after touching down in Colombo, lovely hotel which wasn't busy as we were there at the end of the season. Room was fine, nice view through the palm leaves of the sea, the sound of the ocean as you fall asleep. Air conditioning and hot water in the shower, only point would be that we needed to... More

The sea view rooms with balconies here are lovely - spacious and bright, simple interiors - a great place to wake up in. The breakfast is excellent and the grounds are leafy and shadey, with nice seating areas. The view of the beach is fantastic, although the water is pretty so not an easy place to swim. The lunch &...

Having stayed previously at Drifters and looked at various places when in Hikkaduwa i would say that Sunbeach is about as good as Drifters, if a little more pleasing on the eye. We had a seaview with balcony, the room was good size, clean and bright, mozzie net over the four poster bed. Aircon and fan worked fine, bathroom was... More

Simple clean accommodation right on the beach. Near lots of restaurants & shops in easy walking distance. Serve great cocktails, especially at happy hour. Budget accommodation at the heart of the town. You what you pay for, very reasonable.
