By far the best Boutique Hotel you could find in the Hikkaduwa Beach stretch. We were to go on B & B, but glad we went on Full board as the meals were exquisite. We have tried meals in many places in Hikkaduwa but this was exceptional from Dinner to lunch the next day. Even the rice and curry served... More

Even after reading all of the excellent reviews, I was still pleasantly surprised by this little gem in Hikkaduwa -- so much so that this was my second stay at Roman Beach! The rooms and decor are modern and very tastefully done. The Sri Lankan breakfast with appam and fresh juices was the highlight of my daily dining experience and... More

The rooms are big and beautiful and have a big balcony with ocean view - and you can even lay in the bathtub a enjoy the view! The staff is incrediblely attentive and kind - especially the restaurant manager, Kumar.... More

We stayed in this beautiful small hotel to relax after 2 weeks travelling in Sri Lanka. The rooms are high end and spacious. The staff is very friendly and made us feel at home. You can use the swimming pool or just walk 20 meters to the ocean. The restaurant is excellent, best food we had during our holiday.

6 of us visited the restaurant for lunch. It's clean, beautifully decorated, nice atmosphere with amazing pool and beach views and friendly attentive staff. The quality of the food was excellent - the best we ate during our 4 week stay in Hikkaduwa. The restaurant is not licensed so take your own but they don't charge corkage.

our stay at Roman Beach was beautiful. Out the front is a wide, clean sandy beach and in the grounds a clean, large swimming pool. The six rooms all face the beach and could only be described as stylish and luxurious. with the giant shower behind glass which looks out into the bedroom it has a very contemporary feel. and...

A friend and I visited the Roman Beach on 24th October. This hotel is small, friendly and the staff do everything they can to make your stay perfect. The location is quiet and peaceful but only a short walk away via beach or road to the main bars and restaurants. We had a problem with the A/C on the first... More

My family and I (7 adults, 2 children) stayed at the Roman Beach Hotel for a week in September. I can honestly say it was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The staff went above and beyond for everything, and nothing was too much hassle. - As soon as we arrived at the hotel at 3am,... More

I would give this place an ' excellent' rating but for the service which was below expectation. The staff is extremely cooperative and friendly but they just don't seem to be able to cope with service at meal times. Either they were under staffed because it was off season or they were plain inefficient since there was just us (6... More
