“Perfect!”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

International beach hotel is without doubt the best place on the beach! Its located right in the middle of the beach which makes it easy to get to all places around. They have a restaurant called "drunken monkey", which is totally amazing! the food is great and the waiters are just so friendly and helpful people! Waking up in the morning and having your morning coffee at drunken monkey is the best way to start the day with the amazing view over the ocean! The owners are the most amazing and loyal people I've ever met! They made me feel like home! When we came to international beach hotel for the first time we were suppose to stay for 2 nights, we ended up staying for a month! We barely went to any other places because we had everything right there! Because of their great hospitality, great location and amazing staff, i decided to go back as soon as the season starts again! You can never get enough of this place, its simply PERFECT and ( in my opinion) cheap too and you totally get what you pay for PLUS more!. I totally recommend this place to everyone, families, young groups of friends and couples! :)

My partner and I came in off peak season so we haggled a good price for a ground floor room. It's a big room and we haggled hard so we were quite happy. The room includes a small table and two chairs, large mirror, bed side tables and a built in book shelf. We were staying in hikkaduwa for over a week so we wantef something liveable. Food on this beach is very expensive (2drinks/2plates of fries=2000lkr) and their restaurant was closed when we arrived. The rooms can be a bit dim but this keeps the hot humid sun out of your room. Picked this place over a dozen others I saw personally.

Lots of rooms of different categories but I wish they would sort out their prices, every one seems to get a different rate and they are not cheap. As friendly as they are the International is about getting as much money out of you as possible with little improvement in service no matter that you may be paying more for your food than some International class hotels in Colombo. Consider other, better places before you book in here, there is a lot better to be has for less. Rooms are standard guest house type with hard beds and pillows, though the bedding is folded in a lovely flourish and looks great when you walk in. Bathroom was a bit dirty, not uncommon on the beach and it was a struggle to get anyone to come and clean.

Expensive restaurant, standard menu offering the usual foods and drinks.

There are several types of room from the ground floor ones looknig onto the patio, to the new (expensive) rooms facing the beach. Rooms are a bit dark and dingly I thought. Usual solid , functinal furniture.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the road. The International is quite exposed to the traffice and some rooms...
