With the ocean as its backdrop, Citrus couldn't ask for a better setting. Rooms look out onto gardens with the shoreline beyond and a pool between the lobby and the pathway to the beach. Our room was simple and clean with a fridge and a ground floor balcony, although the French doors didn't quite lock as well as they should... More

This is an expensive but amazingly located hotel. It faces the ocean and the pool is facing the ocean (not an infinity). It is right amidst the Hikkadua shopping area. You can access the beach right from the back of the hotel and watch the surfers playing with the waves. Food is very expensive since this is a high end... More

This time instead of just eating at this hotel, we stayed 10 days. The staff are so friendly, even guessing what we drank with our meals, in a good way. The Hotel has a fabulous situation right in front of the sea, the views are amazing the sound of the sea was therapeutic. Our meals were wonderfully presented and the... More

Firstly we were shown to a room on the top floor and although very nice you had to access these rooms by a narrow outdoor balcony which was not a... More

This is a hotel that you will come to if you are looking for a relaxed private getaway. Not a big type of a hotel. But its a one that you will always come back to. Buffet is not huge but it has variety that you need and tastes great too. Lovely scenery with a bar kind of a table... More

A few of my friends, husband and I were looking forward to a relaxing and enjoyable weekend, and decided to try out Citrus. Some of the others had stayed here a few years back and remember it being quite nice with great service, so we decided to spend a night here. Check in was fast, efficient and friendly. The gentleman... More

When we were at this hotel, the majority of the occupants were from Europe. It appears that the hotel offers a number of package tours which include airfare, 3 meals, and drinks. We found it a nice hotel, but not great. When you open your bedroom windows, you can feel the great sea breeze! The food was fine, but not... More
