This is a great accommodation choice. Being a short walk from the 'busy' end of Hikkaduwa is a benefit because it ensures a good nights sleep. The guest houses and hotels on the strip a bit further along must suffer from noise pollution when the parties go on until 5am in the morning! My husband and I have stayed here... More

As we had to leave early on a Sunday morning we chose a hotel away from the main strip on purpose and we were glad we did, as noise in town can be quite high depending on which place is having a party (eg Vibrations on Friday). The walk along beach is less than 10 mins but as tuk tuks... More

Nice big clean rooms. Had a private balcony overlooking the private garden with pool and also the beach and ocean. Pool was small and shallow. Good for kids but also adequate for cooling off during sunbathing. Just a little down the road from all the hectic places on the main road. The hotel breakfast was good enough. Standard. Ate nothing... More

Great place with friendly staff. Mini bar always replenished with soft drinks only and not too expensive. Very nice little pool and adequate sun beds. Did my laundry there and it was good. Staff got me a taxi to Mirissa. No problems and at a decent price. Clean rooms if you choose the deluxe one with balcony. Don't really know... More

We booked same day and got a small discount for room only after talking to them on the phone. The 3 rooms we had without views were fine with aircon, no need to use the mossie nets. Do ask for a fridge when booking as not all had one. Pool is a winner, our kids loved it and playing on... More

Hotel is great. Nice, spacey ocean view rooms with balcony. Nice and cheap breakfast. Clean pool area. If you want they can provide you with BBQ facilities so you can cook fish just next to the ocean. Very helpful staff, always on the top and willing to help. Hotel is nicely located a bit out of main tourist areas, beach... More

I stayed at this hotel as a lone traveller for 6 nights from 17th January this year. I have to say that I enjoyed my stay there and would certainly return. The location is actually very good as the hotel is at the south end of Hikkaduwa beach in a tranquil area. The place itself is extremely quiet. There is... More

As promised, Mihindu arranged transport from Colombo at 1am. Arrived on our balcony at 4am and listened to the sound of the waves crashing. This hotel was well run and provides a good Sri Lankan breakfast. There is Wifi in the comfy reception area and Mihindu is always ready to help and advise on tourist activities. The rooms are clean... More

Room was clean & tidy. Balcony a nice touch although view not great, due to trees! As a backpacker I found this to be a bit of a treat, as its about a 3rd more in price than I have been spending- but good value for what it was! Sea is really choppy so hotel advised us not to go... More
