Sri Lanka is beautiful, its safe, has lots of unexplored beaches and is still not spoiled by too many tourists, at least not yet. The people are friendly, English is spoken and understood widely, if you do some research before travelling you can get very good deals. Hikkaduwa was the site of of a big disaster when in 2004 the... More

We visited the royal beach hotel a week back. Probably the only plus point of this hotel was its prime location (next to beach). However, the negatives are far higher as its highly overpriced, with not so spacious rooms and lacked basic facilities like TV, Fridge.

Lovely family run hotel. Hotel has a lovely feel they take care of their surroundings. There are lots of nice touches which give it a colonial feel. The hotel is on the beach and located near bars and restaurants

We have been staying in Hikkaduwa for three days now and have used the sun loungers on the beach at this place as it's just in front of a good little surf break- in return we buy bottles of water and Sprites etc.. which seemed to be the going rate. Today however we thought we would have lunch there as... More

I visited The Royal Beach Hotel with a small group tour and found it wonderful. Very pleasant surroundings, comfortable lounge/dining area that opens directly on the beach and the staff were very friendly. The hotel is family owned and very well maintained. Breakfast was included and very simple but good. It is right off the highway so there is an... More

It's right on the beach, on a good sandy spot. The hotel itself is clean with balcony and nice view over the ocean. The price is expensive so do a bit of bargaining. We got exactly half price deal. Water outage in the evenings was common problem, so maybe you should take care of it in advance. breakfast is really... More

We had a room on the third floor. It was clean, but quite small. There is not elevator. The hotel is right on the beach and it has the best huts on the beach for shade that I saw when I walked along the beach. Not a lot of choice at the buffet breakfast, but the dinner |I had there... More

To echo the comments of previous contributors, the manger and staff are dreadful. Overpriced food, constantly trying to overcharge and alter the price of our room, cannot stress how terrible their attitude is... And I'm a backpacker who doesn't usually care about things like that usually! Came to Sri Lanka 2 years ago and the service and politeness of all... More

We stayed there for only one night. The location was superb, directly on the beach and the main surf spots. The hotel is nice and clean, and our room was also very clean. It was a hard struggle to get a bit of a discount and even though we found it still overpriced, we took a room. To be honest,... More

Nice location and good ocean view. But the owner / manager was awful and not polite. And the staff including an old lady walking around and making discount decisions were really unfriendly. i do not recommend this place.
