We stayed 4 nights here in two rooms. The hotel is perfecty located on the beach with nice sunbeds. The staff are friendly and talkative. Food is average. The rooms were nice and clean with hot warer but the door to the bathroom in one of the rooms (no.31) were broken and could not close. They have a variety of... More

Best hotel in Hikkaduwa! All the time the hotel is full unlike others. Right next to the best surfing spot. We walked all along the beach and never saw as much people as in this hotel. They have the best personnel who always do the impossible to please the clients. The manager is one of the most professional and cooperative... More

The rooms are basic (cold shower and no blinds for the shower window...) but the location right on the beach makes it worth the stay. The Drunken Monkey Bar has a relaxed atmosphere for a drink or food. Close to a beach break and board rental if you're into surfing or wanting to learn. However, if you are travelling alone... More

Due to some positive reviews we had read, we decided to stay at the International. The room was ok if not very noisy at night as the place is close to the road. Location wise for the beach, it’s ideal though. I found that some of the staff were not as friendly as other places; that’s probably the norm at... More

We had one of the rooms facing the beach, and with a balcony that we shared with the room next door (sea view suite). The room was very nice, and even had a fridge. Bathroom also very nice. However, they played quite noisy music from around dinner time and till 11. That made it less tempting for us to use... More

We stayed here for seven days and although the location was great, the noise was not. We were in a room close to the main road so other rooms maybe better, but the toots of the vehicles at night made it very hard to sleep. The rooms are quite dark also, but there was hot water so for the price... More

Booked it due to the good reviews and whilst it is well located on beach the food here is average and the rooms are only ok. It is prob too busy and the staff seemed a bit impersonal. Mossier net was crap also

Need to book this place ahead of time as during season, it is fully booked. It is the best place to stay in Hikkaduwa for those who like the simple, funky, chilled out lifestyle. The Narigama stretch is great for seabathing. My favourite experiences year in year out for over 5 years now, have been here. It's safe, the waiters... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved the place. It is smack bang in the middle of all the action at Narigama Beach. There is a great restaurant under the hotel itself (the Drunken Money). Literally steps away from the beach, the location could not get any better. The rooms were clean, but not cleaned... More
