We had day's stay at this hotel during our trip to Sri Lanka, my word !! they charge an exorbitant $140 for an ordinary room, extremely expensively and not worth at all at that price. I agree the hotel location is a prime property and the view from the room is also very decent, however rooms are little cramped and... More

We stayed at the Coral Sands Hotel for four nights at the end of a tour of Sri Lanka. We had a Superior room, on the ground floor facing the beach (room 004). This was perfectly located, very close to the swimming pool and we had our own private sun loungers, so no worrying that they'd all be taken. It... More

Coral Sands is in a good location in Hikkaduwa. It is just before the heart of town and where all of the other bars and restaurants are located. It is about a ten minute walk to the centre or a 2 minute Tuk Tuk which will cost you 100rps. Therefore it is close enough to the centre while also being... More

This is our second visit to Coral Sands hotel. We came back again as we wanted to take the opportunity to swim with turtles just off the beach. Since our last visit two years ago, the hotel has undergone quite a major refurbishment with revamped rooms with balconies and an extension and upgrading of the dining facilities. Situated right on... More

Great hotel, staff, food and 10 steps to the beach. We stayed at the hotel for a week with extended family - 10 people in total 6 adults and 4 boys ages ranging from 4-8 years. The staff were incredibly attentive, helped with kids meals and were all so friendly. There is great snorkelling very close to the hotel and... More

Perfect quiet location with many improvements this year February 2015. Less than two hours from the international airport facing the sea but with immediate town access at rear. The first floor sun terraces are a huge benefit introduced this year. The enlarged pool is excellent and our grandchildren all learnt to swim like fishes here. Coral, turtles, snorkeling, glass bottomed... More

We had a very enjoyable three nights at the Coral Sands Hotel, the location is perfect, on the beach next to the Coral reef area, the pool is fantastic and the terrace large and lovely. The rooms let the overall impression of the hotel down, they feel very dated, the interior décor did not help with keeping the rooms clean... More

Hello your guys. We had two unforgettable weeks at the Coral Sands in February 2015. We have been to Sri Lanka 5 times previously and lived in several places. Coral Sands is by far our favorite. Coral Sands only convinces, particularly by their front office service, rooms, housekeeping, bar, restaurant, seaview, pools, beach, etc.. We would like to highlight especially... More

We stayed at this hotel from 31st January to 6th February 2015 and had a pleasent time. It's in a good location in Hikkaduwa close to the Poseidon dive school and lots of other hotels and restaurants/shops in the area as well as the train station. We stayed in a delux room which had been recently redecorated and was comfortable... More
