Minus: 1. Hotel is rather worn out. 2. Rooms are not a dream, but certainly compared to the other available guesthouses and hotels who asked a higher rate, Sunils rooms were far better. 3. Lousy breakfast, toast, jam, some cheese, sausage and eggs, banana and papaya. and especially a lousy display. A bit of a more attentive display would make... More

It´s true that Sunils Beach Hotel must have seen better days. The rooms were OK but for this price you can get a much better room in Sri Lanka. The kids loved the pool and we loved that we could walk to the sea. The restaurant beside the hotel played litle to loud some nights. It´s true that the hotel... More

It is a not that bad hotel for Sri Lanka standards. It is cheap to use their swimming pool, you can access a nice beach from the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. A bit of renovating would be badly needed. Bathroom is a bit shabby, and the furniture is not that nice either.

We moved here from another hotel in Hikkaduwa and actually wished we'd stayed at the original hotel. The room on first inspection seemed fine, but the bathroom was awful with a mouldy shower curtain and disgusting drain in the corner by the toilet. The whole places needs a massive renovation - it must have been one of the best places... More

I ahve stayed in Sunils a couple of times over the past 10 years and although it isn't the best hotel you will ever stay in it has character, and lots of potential, I wish they would let me run it for a couple of years I am sure I could make it into a great place to stay. It... More

We were supposed to stay at sunils for a couple of days but as we got there we were told our room wasn't ready, although we had a reservation. We were given a dirty room for staff and we had to wait for nine hours for our room to be available. Managers were sending junior staff to talk to us... More

The beach is the only good thing you can find there. Rooms old and not clean. Food not good. Service very bad. I had booked for 2 days and finally cancelled one day seeing the pathetic condition. Not recomended. Pics available at www.kurupsdiary.blogspot.com

On my recent visit to Hikkaduwa in September 2011, I was looking for a place to stay for a week. So when I visited this hotel, I was put off. It looks very old and a bit outdated. I got to have a glance at the rooms and they were basic and pretty shabby looking for the price I was... More
