My friend and I have just returned from a wonderful stay in the beautiful little Sunbeach hotel in Hikkaduwa. Its right on the beachfront, a stones throw from the crashing waves of the ocean. As you enter the doors you leave the hustle and bustle of the shops and traffic behind and you move through to the terrace and onto the beach. Sunbeach is a wonderful oasis of calm; unfussy but stylish, very laid back and quietly cool. The owners, Maria and Neil, are very hospitable and helpful. They know a lot about the area (and Sri Lanka more generally) and they bend over backwards to help you squeeze every last drop out of your holiday. They have great contacts and their friendly, obliging staff take the hassle out of everything including organising day trips and longer journeys. Maria recommended drivers to help us explore the nearby area - top value, very well informed and interesting, great fun and absolutely hassle free. The hotel has lovely clean rooms, good showers and comfy beds. We stayed in two bright, spacious adjoining rooms with a balcony overlooking the ocean. An amazing view of the ocean, lovely to lie in bed watching the surfers and listening to the crashing waves. There are a lot of good places to eat in Hikkaduwa but we found ourselves eating at the hotel quite a bit. The big variety of delicious curries and the casual , friendly atmosphere meant we stayed put more than we might normally have done. A few beers and some good chat rounded off by some delicious food. We were allowed in to the kitchen to take a peek at the chefs at work; all local produce, quite exotic (lotus roots) and brilliant for vegetarians, vegans and pescatarians. It was amazing to watch our lovely curries being prepared; everything from scratch and very healthy. We had a brilliant stay (thanks Maria and Neil and everyone at Sunbeach). Couldn't fault it (well maybe the cocktails were a little ropey!) and we will definitely be back!

Just had an amazing 4 night stay at Sunbeach Hotel. Super friendly owner and staff made us feel so welcome. Located right in front of Main Reef and Sunbeach surf breaks. Great breakfast. Really impressed with Hikkadua town also. Laid back and the best waves we found in Sri Lanka, and much less busy in the water than the South coast! Will be back for sure. Thanks Neil and team.

This was our first time in Sri Lanka and we stayed for 7 nights in February. We topped and tailed our holiday here and when we returned after travelling around we really did feel we were coming home. Our lovely balcony room had its own palm tree growing through the balcony and a perfect view of the beach and the surf. The room was fresh, clean and comfortable with air con and mosquito nets - breakfast was included. If you're a surfer you couldn't be better located and if not you can either learn or enjoy watching from the plentiful sunbeds. Other guests included individual travellers, families, couples and friends. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our best curry and rice was eaten here - freshly cooked and a range of delicious dishes. If you're interested in day trips they can hook you up with a Tuk Tuk driver or arrange a driver and car for a few days. Highly recommend and if we're back in Sri Lanka we will be back at Sunbeach.

At this hotel, you can walk out of your room grab a table and watch world-class Surfers hitting the waves right in front of your eyes. If you're not a Surfer but like the idea oof watching some Surfers this place is great. If you are a Surfer then it is even better, as the famous Sun Beach Break is on your doorstep. We spent 3 days here watching surfers and learning to surf, whilst enjoying the great food and chilled out atmosphere. I can highly recommend.

We stayed at Sunbeach for a month in January but have been regular guests over the past few years. It truly is an amazing place to stay. Super friendly helpful staff, Neil and Maria, the owners could not be more welcoming. Best spot on the beach, with clear views to both surf breaks, lovely clean rooms with amazing views and great food. Throughly recommend. See you next year Sunbeach. Jonny & Lucy
