Really really enjoyed our stay in Roman Beach Hotel. The rooms are very nice, a step away from the beach, with a nice pool and excellent food. Delicious breakfast and yummy a-la-carte menu. And if you requiere anything different... Just ask! The chef and the rest of the staff will go the extra mile to ensure you stay is perfect... More

We spend our last night in Sri Lanka there. It was off season (August) so the beaches were empty, neglected and dirty. The rooms are nicely furnished but the whole resort has no soul. The staff is polite but cold inside. We asked for an airport shuttle we wanted to share with a couple we met at the hotel. The... More

Wonderful and quiet place near Hikkaduwa. Small staff but very good service. The Beach is small but private. Nice pool and rooms are great. The real plus point is the service of the staff. Great little place to visit.

I spent 3 days at this hotel from 31st Jul to 02nd August 2015 and had an amazing stay. I am not a person who has bothered to write a review for any of the hotels I have stayed in the past because none of it was up to my standards. But this hotel just blew our minds. We got... 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
