As two 19 year old backpackers on a tight budget, me and my friend loved this hotel! It may not be the best equipped or managed but it's located right on the beach and main strip, and is run by a bunch of friendly staff. We hired one of the individual cabin rooms at the front of the hotel and... More

We checked it @ 5.30 pm on a rainy day. They wanted us to do the full payment at that time itself. But when we went to the room it had a no hot water supply, Nothing in the mini bar. No TV or telephone also no bottled water to drink at least. And to talk to the hotel staff... More

The rooms were quite small, but were clean, unfortunately the room we were in had no hot water but the manager moved us straight away. The new room had warm water in the evening but next morning it was cold. The breakfast here was not good and the staff were disinterested in customers.

We just finished eating an excellent sea food plate and can highly recommend all other travelers to come here! We have eaten a lot of good food in our journeys throughout Asia and this is surely a place to stop by.

This place has no atmosphere and feels a bit like a money making machine. We didn't feel very welcomed here at all. There is no reception so it's hard to find anyone if you have any questions. We got a decent price on the room but it took some extensive haggling and it wasn't till we were about to leave... More

It was my mistake to travel alone to this place, but I've heard a lot of amazing beaches at Hikaduwa and couldn't finish my trip without seeing it. So, I took a train from Candy and after 4 or 5 hours I reached my point. I hadn't any booking and I believed a guild from the train station who recommended... More

When you go to the down south sri lanka its better idea to stay one or two day at Hikkaduwa. Also I recommend you to go Royal Beach Hotel to get your accommodation. Hotel manager and crew is very friendly. Rooms are very clean. Fully air conditioned. But I want to mention you there is not a swimming pool there.... More

Do yourself a favour and stay at the Royal Beach Hotel - it is awesome. Do yourself another favour and get the kitchen to make you some traditional local curries for dinner each night - they will blow your mind!!!!! Make sure you have coconut sambal too. This hotel is right on the sand and is located at the southern... More
