“Dated..Centrally Located”
Reviewed March 1, 2011

This place needs a major upgrade. Th rooms and certainly the bathrooms are very, very old. The beach is a narrow strip of sand but this is fairly typical of Hikkaduwa. Food is mediocre at best but the service was quite good. The pool was clean but crows and pigeons kept drinking off it and sometimes dirtying it. It's right in the middle of the small town so you can walk to most places. Nice, large property but if maintained better could be great.

The glass bottom tour was fun and we were able to feed a sea turtle right from the pier in frontof the hotel.

Just come back from a stay in the Hikkaduwa Beach Hotel and there are undoubtedly better places to stay. In the 3 days we were there, the lift didn't work at all, the air conditioning was variable, they ran out of white wine, ginger beer and icecream and the food was "faux Western" and very disappointing. Hardly a curry in sight! In addition, it's 6 years since the tsunami but they still haven't repaired the access to the beach which is currently an awkward flight of crumbling steps from a corner of the terrace. So go somewhere else - and better not all-inclusive as there are loads of interesting-looking places to eat in Hikkaduwa.

This hotel is the worst place that you can stay in, although loads of people have said that the place is heaven BUT it is an absolutely lie, The staff are really not co operative and the food is atrocious, and although they give you a time schedule when the meals are served they still run out of food and for the price you pay it's not worth a cent to stay in a place of this nature. and there is no one in the hotel who manages the place cause even if you want to place a complaint there is no one responsible to do so, I do not recommend this dump to any one.. there is a much better place around hikkaduwa which can be booked!

Hi jersylove,
We really appreciate your open review, but almost every thing in your review makes us doubt your stay with us. Before i start my response to your review, i would like to point out something. If a lots of people are saying that Hikkaduwa Beach Hotel is heaven, then there's no reason for a lot of people to lie. Hope that make sense for you.

1) First of all your claim that there's no one is the place who manages the place is totally false, the hotel is being managed by our manager Ganesh, and you will see him around most of the time, besides there are more than enough staffs to assist our visitors.

2) I do not understand what made you think that our staffs are not co-operative, but our staffs are friendly, polite and are well trained in delivering services. They have gained a lot of our visitors hearts with their exceptional friendly service. Previous review from Mia is such an example. You could also see her review in our facebook page.

3) "if you want to place a complaint there is no one responsible to do so", which is completely a false statement. We have tried our best implemented so many methods to get our customer's feed back in every possible way. We value customer's complains and feedback, that's why we have a customer feedback book placed at the entrance of the hotel, a webpage with our contact details, an inquiry email which is being responded by our manager as often as possible, and top of all these we also have a facebook fan page. We wonder how you missed all these.

Of course, there could be some much better place around in Hikkaduwa , but we are not making our visitors to stay in a sewage for you to call Hikkaduwa Beach Hotel a "dump". We would really appreciate if you could chose your words wisely in reviews.

We take customers complain very serious, thus we are looking forward to investigate your bad experience with us. In order to do that so, we require your full identity and the confirmation of your stay with us. You could email all the details to inquiry@hbeachhotel.com, please provide a detailed information on the issue.

Thank you,
Administrator.

Spent the last week of our vacation in Sri Lanka at Hikkaduwa Beach Hotel.
The rooms are good (middle standard) and the food is lovely, spicey and nice!
Most of all we appreciated the staff and their service mindedness and friendliness.
The pool is nice and the beach close by is fantastic.
If we go to Hikkaduwa on our next trip to Sri Lanka, hopefully we stay at Beach Hotel again.
