We stayed in Hikkaduwa at the end of March. This was our first time in Sri Lanka. Hopefully not our last time. Check in: we arrived around 7pm after a long journey and check in was quick and effective. No long filling in of forms and hanging around. We were given room keys and safe keys and shown to our...

We had a deluxe room with a lovely view over the Indian Ocean. Room was clean and spacious. We had requested a double bed but it was two singles pushed together with a spacer between to make it comfortable. The pool was lovely and the sun beds were in the garden with no sun beds on the beach as the... More

Location is just right, very close to the beach and on the road to Galle. 3 wheeler local autos are easily available for covering short distances. Breakfast was typical English and tasty. The room was directly overlooking the beach and the pool. The morning water was perfectly turquoise. All-in-all an above average 3 star accommodation.

Rooms have a nice view of pool and beach. Bathrooms were a little small. Service from all staff was excellent. We had half board and the breakfast and dinner were generally very good. The entertainment was enjoyable if a little cheesy at times. Not much nightlife in the area which is good if you want a quiet night but not... More
