We spent an enjoyable weekend at Roman Beach taking 4 rooms out of the 8 and almost had the place to ourselves.We were a group of 8 friends who needed to get get away and chill out for 1 night and we found the perfect little hotel. Loved the whole concept & the personalized service. The interior & decor is... More

Be polite, reception gives good information, regulation and taxi drivers very well. No drinks in the hotel is possible in the supermarket to buy good wines and... More

Roman beach is located in an unassuming location and feels as if it's meant to be hidden. The entrance to the hotel is very small but there is enough parking . My Wife and I stayed here for a day and we enjoyed it very much. The dinning hall opens to the pool and one can see the beach from... More

We stayed here a few years ago and the standard was very high. Beautiful, clean, spacious rooms with nice sized balconies and fabulous views. We fell asleep to the sound of the sea every night. The hotel has a great pool and serves delicious breakfasts. The staff were friendly and helpful. Looking at reviews since our stay it seems the... More

This hotel is like having five star service at home. The rooms are homely but does not scream luxury. Hubs and I booked ourselves for a full board package. However, I was surprised with the couple of options they had for meals. Having said that, every meal was very freshly made and delicious, nonetheless. Maybe the next time we visit... More

We had our visit in feb this year, and got the Roman beach hotel recommended from friends. We are extremly happy that we stayed there. The staff was extraordinarily pleasant and helpful. We were treated as royalties. One of the chefs even invited us home for a nice little visit and some food. The rooms had a pleasant view, always... More

This is a small time boutique hotel with amazingly comfortable rooms Facing the Indian Ocean. The interior is just beautiful and unique. The food is a must try in this place and is the best we tried in Hikkaduwa. The service is very welcoming and personal.

My wife and I spent 3 amazing days (2 nights) at Roman Beach. We came here, after our 3 night stay at their sister resort Roman Lake (which is extremely beautiful and relaxing in its own way). This hotel was in a perfect location (away from the busy Hikkaduwa town), offering abundant privacy and seclusion for its customers. They food... More

I actually stayed there back in 2012 shortly after it opened and it was without a doubt the warmest, friendliest hotel during our 2 week trip. The staff were exceptional and the food was excellent. I can't say enough about this place other than look no further for a couples hotel. Didn't have kids with us so can't say how... More
