We hated the place. There is no beach. No, basically the hotel is just on the beach, but the beach itself is like 2-3 meters wide! No spot to enjoy. In other parts of Hikkaduwa you can see much netter beach. The worst part is the staff. When I asked the person who is the manager as I needed to... More

Fantastic location, situated almost at high tide mark on the beach, and surrounded by all the necessary facilities. We booked the beach view apartment which boasted a porch to absorb incredible sunset views over the water. Staff/owners are all friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and provided adequate facilities. The bed comfort is average at best (the second bed... More

We booked a hotel in Hikkaduwa, only to find out that we had not place to stay upon arrival! The staffa at Appolo was so helpful and managed to find us a room. The room was big enough for the three of us and was clean. The staff were some of the most friendly people, always willing to help. The... More

This hotel is located in hikkaduwa beach just 2-3 building next to citrus hotel, on the beach-side. Very quiet hotel run by a very friendly family with a lovely pet dog. Room is big enough (approx 20 feet X 13 feet) with AC, mini fridge, fan, 3 door wardrobe and other necessary furnitures. No TV and no room service, no... More

They did really good breakfast every morning for me. Owner told me I was first Nepalese who have stayed at Appolo Hotel ever. Even very last... More

Appolo is a Sri Lanka style hotel located between the main road of Hikkaduwa and the beach. It is near to many restaurants and shops. The owners of the hotel - friendly and relaxed family - are helpfull with arrangements but the hotel offers only very basic standard. I had a small room with AC, fan, small fridge and access...

We paid SLR4000/nt for a very small room. It had a fan and good AC, and a mini fridge(which is essential in this weather). They provided extra towels for the beach. Nice pot of brewed leaf tea, and nice fresh bread with breakfast. Bad- the toilet and room smelled bad for 1 of the 3 days we were there. The... More

Spent four nights at Appolo and I'll start with the good parts. Location is very good, central and on the beachside of the road. Nevertheless the beach in front of the Hotell is not very nice, and there are other stretches that are much better. The rooms are clean and upon request we could borrow an extra set of towels...

Apollo was our third stay during our 2nd Lanka holiday. We got there after the high season so we got a good rate for a big room on the 3rd floor. It looked like 2 bedroom apartment. We got the Master bedroom and a French couple checked into the second bedroom the same evening. We spend many hours sitting at... More

We booked an apartment but they were on the ground floor a bit dark, they gave us a room on the top floor, which was huge, AC, cable and a large bathroom. Great place to stay, friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, cold beer, right on the beach with many restaurants not far away (try number 1 roti house). The... More
