This hotel has a fantastic view. And the beach is right there. Lovely pool as well. The rooms are extremely average and could do with a bit of an update. But i would come back here definitely for the pool and proximity to the room. Its much larger than most other properties in that same line.

Lovely location, right by the beach. Helpful staff. We were upgraded on arrival which was nice but we were given an adjoining room which wasn't ideal. Breakfast was poor. No minibar. No wifi in bedrooms, only in the lobby, which was very slow. Very rude bar staff. They also need more sun beds near the pool area. On leaving, we...

This isn't a 5 star hotel but they nonetheless treat everyone with great friendliness. From the moment you arrive everyone is helpful and friendly. It's not an expensive hotel but has a good beach location and close to lots of restaurants and bars. If you walk down the beach you may also be lucky enough to see turtles just off...

We walked into CSH looking for a room last minute, high season, hoping to escape our dumpy room at Coral Rock. They had nothing for the night we stopped in, but booked us into a lovely oceanfront room for the following two nights. The staff were gracious in arranging the stay, and all the bar men and wait staff were...

Unfortunately, after staying here for 10 days we have to agree with all of the NEGATIVE comments on the previous reviews. How people can call the hotel stunning, beautiful etc. is beyond me. Our first bad experience was while being shown to our room by Mr Lakshman, we took one look at the dirty filthy bathroom and called him back...

The Coral Sands Hotel is squeezed between the main coastal road and the beach of Hikkaduwa. Hikkaduwa is definitly not a nice town and has many low quality shops and restaurants and a lot of traffic running through it. The main road comes close to the hotel but there are no rooms on that side so that is not a...
