I have visited Hikkaduwa a few times and this is hotel was a great little find. We stayed half board so had breakfast and our evening meal included. The room was suited to what we needed it for. It was clean and functional and had a great view of the sea with a small outside seating area. Housekeeping was good...

I recently stayed at Coral Sands Hikkaduwa. If you are looking for a stay which is more comfortable than the multitude of budget lodgings available in Hikkaduwa then I recommend Coral Sands. While it is not as fancy as Hikka Tranz which is closeby, this hotel gives value for money. The hotel has beautiful seaview and is located on the...

We had been for a family trip to sri lanka and this resort was the last Pit stop for us. We Drove From YALA to Coral Sands and the ride was awesome, specially the last 30-40 mins which was along the Beach. The road was literally along the beach with awesome view. The resort is in the middle of a...

Spacious room, but lots of rooms as its a resort, thus no personal warm feeling. Amneties and facilities are in a good condition and room is soundproof. The AC was also very welcome in the April heat. Its right on the protected marine park beach where you can snorkel. As with a lot of places in SL, the prices on...

This was one of the best hotels we stayed at during our 10 night stay in Sri Lanka. The pool area and beach is spectacular (and was the main reason for choosing this hotel) and with the friendly staff and an outside bar this really made the last few days of our holiday relaxing and extremely enjoyable. The room itself...

We stayed at Coral Sands hotel in mid April 2017. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival by the staff who gave us a welcome drink and cold towel to refresh ourselves after our journey. The adjoining rooms were very good, with one room for adults and one for children with twin beds. We had a problem with...

Spent a week at the hotel with my family. Clean room, friendly and helpful staff. The room on the second floor was nice, but a bit outdated. Room service is good. The hotel located on the beach. Right from the hotel small shallow reef with a lot of fishes. Breakfast options are limited, taste is good. I would say overall...

Coral Sands has a lot going for it but it is let down by a number of shortcomings. It is positioned right on the beach and somewhat cramped. The beach itself stretches in both directions passing many other hotels, restaurants and bars. The bedroom was large and clean but the bathroom was small and needed updating. The pool area was...

Very friendly and helpful bar/restaurant staff. Clean room, OK bathroom & AC. Suggestions would be: - that staff keep the noise down as they woke us every morning in the hallways. - fridge in bedroom so drinks can be kept cool. They did provide lots of ice at the bar which was good! - reception are more friendly & helpful...
