We stayed for three nights and found this hotel to be very pleasant. It is a family run business (three generations working there) who were intent on making our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. The main attraction is its position right on the beach--about 10 feet from the water, so you can hear the crash of the waves... More

Stayed here two nights on a tour through town. When we arrived itnwas exciting to see the beach so close to the hotel. I jumped into my swim suit and got into the ocean quickly. No signs and we were not told that there are HUGE rocks under those very rough waves. Started treading water and knocked my shin on... More

booked for one night on our tour of Sri Lanka, upon arrival we asked where reception was, there was no reception just a young girl with no shoes on who struggled to speak English. We had booked the "deluxe suit" with a ocean view. The room was exactly the same as the other rooms as we could see in while... More

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
