Room was fantastic. Big bathroom, comfy bed, and a big balcony looking out over pool and ocean. The staff was amazing. Friendly and helpful...whatever you want, they will arrange it. Food was great -- breakfasts, lunch, dinner, snacks, all delicious. It is right on the beach...and a very quiet stretch of beach, we had practically the whole beach area to... More

This is a quiet and small hotel (6 rooms) with some qualities and some drawbacks. Excellent food, friendly staff, good housekeeping, a very nice tuk-tuk driver who may take you to interesting places. BUT: too expensive, the sea is too dangerous to swim in (two locals drowned during our first week), constant "thunder" from the big waves, no sun beds... More

We stayed as a family of 5 people and had a great time with great service. The place is perfectly located a short tuck tuc ride outside of Hikkaduwa with very short walking distance to other beach resataurants and bars, but still very private. The view is fantastic, as are the rooms. Very nice pool and great service. The food... More

We were in room 106, it has a jacuzzi spacious bedroom and a great view of the ocean. The hotel is one of the best and one of the quietest hotels in Hikkaduwa, it is also right on the beach so all you have to do is step out onto the sand. There is a fun little surf is about... More

We spent a week here including Xmas day. The moment we walked in we felt instantly relaxed. The service was all round excellent. The food was all of a very high standard. Breakfasts were filling and lovely to sit overlooking the pool with the waves crashing behind on the beach. A short walk to other restaurants for lunch and dinners.... More

Truly a fantastic place to stay. My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for five nights at the end of October. It was everything that we had hoped for! Great location, peaceful, quiet and situated right on the beach. Although slightly out of the main drag, this was perfect for us as it worked out at around £1 each... More

If you like the chilled atmosphere of Hikkaduwa but are looking for somewhere more upmarket to stay this is the perfect choice. Hikka is an amazing stretch of beach, wide sandy beach, lined with palm trees and lots of budget guest houses and some big hotels at the main end. Roman Beach Hotel is located down the quiet end on... More

Not much to say, it is like in the photos.. An excellent place to relax.. and listen the ocean from your bed or from the balcony.. The only hotel we visited where I would like to spend a month in Sri Lanka.
