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

Stayed here as part of a G Adventures tour group for three nights. Our tour guide did tell us in advance that this hotel was not going to be the best but the location was good. We had to move rooms after coming back one day to find that the air conditioning vent had leaked over the floor. The second... More

We have just come back from 2 weeks in Hikkaduwa. As per usual I read the comments placed by other users before we booked. Some of them are good and well balanced some are from people who booked Sri Lanka expecting San Trope. Ignore these and travel with an open mind and a few expectations and you will find a... More

The only positive thing I have to say about this place is the location and adjustable shower head. If you are staying at this hotel, be sure not to pay for all your days in advance, as you will NOT receive a refund if you decide to leave earlier than planned. When asked why I couldn't get a refund the... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. It looks modern, clean, also posh and all this for a decent price. The hotel is well equipped, room and bathroom were grand, the bed was big and comfortable. The AC was working well, hot water, and fan was fine. For a lower price u can ask for no AC in the... More

The Hotel has a great location right on the beach. We paid 2,500LKR for one night without AC. The back of the hotel opens up right onto the sand. The room was very damp with a lot of mosquitos. We didn't eat there (it seemed that no one else did either), so I can't say anything for the food, except... More

Despite a smelly room this place was exactly what we needed for our first night in Sri Lanka. Super efficient airport transfer arranged by hotel, ocean view room and at the right price. Breakfast ok, but you may want to eat elsewhere lunchtime and evenings and there is plenty of choice within minutes along the beach. Perfect for main surf... More

We stayed one Night, Got an okay Price 4500rs without breakfast) but could not stay longer due to the very smelly mouldy stank. There were big staints on the walls in bright green and black, and the lamps very stainted with mouldy green spots. The room were clean and the bed sheets nice. We did not eat at the place.
