Do yourself a favour and stay at the Royal Beach Hotel - it is awesome.
Do yourself another favour and get the kitchen to make you some traditional local curries for dinner each night - they will blow your mind!!!!! Make sure you have coconut sambal too.
This hotel is right on the sand and is located at the southern end of Hikkaduwa away from the large ugly hotels of the northern end and right in front of the surf. The rooms are clean and tidy and moderately priced. They also have good day beds on the beach and you can chill all day on the beach.
The hotel is run by Kumara and his lovely trustworthy staff (possibly the nicest staff ever). This was the second time we stayed here since our first visit in 2010 and we will keep coming back.
I could not recommend a hotel is Sri Lanka anymore and could not fault the service, as the staff were always trying to help out and loved to have a chat.
