We recently spent 4 nights in this hotel as a group of 7 and it was wonderful. Not only was it great value for money but the staff were so helpful and friendly. We first visited 11 years ago and it was so nice to come back and see how much work has been done on the property since including the lovely second swimming pool, no doubt we will be back again on our next visit to Sri Lanka and will recommend to others.

unfortunately we visited the hotel during a storm however, it was a beautiful hotel and spotlessly clean. it has direct access to the beach and also a large pool. The hotel was super safe with security at main door and also at the gate access to the beach.

We had a wonderful stay at Coral Sands Hotel in Hikkaduwa. The room was very luxurious and comfortable with all the amenities of a high standard which even included a jacuzzi !!

The service and food were of high quality, the staff too were most obliging and courteous.

The beach frontage is exceptional and the marine life awesome. We were even able to swim amongst the exotic fish and get really close up with the turtles which was the highlight of our stay particularly to the children.

We highly recommend this hotel to all visitors looking for a safe, secure and pleasant holiday in Sri Lanka.

Greetings from Coral Sands
Dear Guest,

We are delighted with the excellent review done following your recent stay with us.

Thank you for the positive comments regarding all aspects of your brief holiday. Your appreciation is invaluable & makes our work load lighter.

An encounter with a turtle while swimming or snorkelling would definitely be etched in the memory of your grand kids. We’ve heard amazing tales of our guests being ‘shadowed’ by turtles for the entire duration of snorkelling.

Feeding & touching sea turtles though done on the beach area in Hikkaduwa, may according to experts, interfere with their natural behaviour & foraging habits. This is just additional information for those interested in the conservation of marine life.

We look forward to welcome you on your next visit to Coral Sands.

Kind regards,

We were a group of four older ladies and cant fault this hotel from the charming staff to the beautiful location .They even organised a cooking class for us. We were there during the bombings---a very sad event for the people involved and the country as a whole but I have to say we did feel safe at all times.
