We booked for two nights but unfortunately there was a mixup with our booking. The front office manager, dining staff and everyone else did everything in their ability to make sure the error was rectified and our stay was amazing.

We stayed 4 nights in a sea view room, great location on the beach that you can swim in. There are no lifts. Breakfast is the usual buffet and staff were friendly and helpful. But I don't think our bathroom had been cleaned properly for a long time so much mould in the shower and the light fitting was filthy....

This hotel is a good compromise for accommodation in HIkkaduwa. It is located right above the beach and within walking distance of numerous restaurants and bars. The rooms are a good size and clean. Request a beach side room - they are quieter and have a great view from their balcony. Note that there is no lift. The service is...

This hotel is in a great location right on the beach. There is no lift in case you don't like walking upstairs. The breakfast is simple but comprehensive with some great curry dishes as well as European style, fruit and eggs. Friendly and obliging staff close to plenty of restaurants.

We stayed here during Christmas, the room was very nice and had a stunning view of the sea. We have stayed at a number of hotels and guest houses in Hikkaduwa and this one is right in the middle price wise. The room was serviced daily although it was clean by Sri Lankan standards not Uk standards. The staff were...

Great place! Good sized rooms. Family friendly. Clean. Great price. Good food. Awesome location. We stayed here for two nights (breakfast included). You can splash in the pool and jump into the ocean which is just below the pool. Fantastic view of the sea and sunset. I would highly recommend this place!
