Perfectly located at the beach, clean and nice room (you just need to leave your key at the reception and ask for cleaning), walking distance to all the restaurants, bars and nightlife. The staff is very lovely and friendly. The food is also good. I felt perfect there and meet a lot of other nice travelers.

we stayed here as a family- 3 boys aged 15-20-23- one week in october. We enjoyed a wonderful week in this family owned small hotel right on the beach. although it was off season we could enjoy the beautiful wide beach, clear water and great waves with lots of sunshine. There are many sunbeds with sun protection and even beachservice... More

By far the best place I've stayed in Sri Lanka! Not to far from main reef and the best beach brakes around the place if your into surfing. The staff are super helpful and the food is safe and tasty. Walking distance to all the night life and restaurants, and the rooms are very tidy and clean.

A nice looking hotel with a nice athmosphere. Nearby a lot of places to drink or eat. Once you leave the beach prices go down. At about 0,75 km there is a supermarket, when you leave go left. If you leave to the right there is almost nothing. If you want to see the turtles go to the chaaya tranz... More

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
