My husband and I booked the budget room with a balcony for two nights as part of our holiday in August 2016. We had read mixed reviews but hoped for the best as the pictures looked very nice online. Now we realise this is all part of a scam. When we arrived at the hotel, we were asked if we... More

When you turn up at the hotel you are asked if you would like to view your room before checking in. You then realise why, the room you are shown is nothing like the pictures online, it's old, dirty, dark and smells horrible. When you complain you are offered an upgrade for $40 per night (double the cost of the... More

We were warned by a few people that Hikkaduwa is full of surfers and not a great spot to relax, but to our surprise our tuk tuk driver Sarat brought us to Ranmal beach hotel - a really lovely spot right on the beach. We had a sea facing room and could sleep with the balcony door open and fall... More

For our honeymoon we decided for the combination Sri Lanka and Maldives. On Sri Lanka our choice was Hikkaduwa and from several hotels we selected the Ranmal Beach Hotel because of his location directly on the beach. We read some bad reviews so have been a little bit worried what could we expect. After our arrival we were positively surprised.... More

- Despite reading mixed reviews we would give this hotel top marks. It was extremely clean and someone offered to clean the room daily if you wanted it. - Staff couldn't have been more friendly, polite or helpful and took real pride in their work. - The best thing about the Ranmal is its location for us, right on the...

Still here! Booked 5 nights, one left. Location is good, hotels quiet part of the beach 10m away. We booked room without AC (only Fan). Not place for budget travellers as we are, but If you are ready to pay extra you'll get room with terrace and great seaview. Pool is nice too. Think, this is familyfriendly place 👍

Great stay, would come back any time. Nice clean pool, view to a beautiful beach, the kids (6,7,11&12) loved both. The beach is quiet and not crowded as closer to hikkaduwa, and no beach parties - and yet it is close to everything, either go by the beach or by the road (tuktuk). The best piece of the beach, Just... More
