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

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
