I stayed there one night with my colleagues. Late arrival. We enjoyed the food very much. Even the breakfast was fully loaded. They have a nice restaurant where even passers by can visit. The room was ok but defenatly need a renovation.

Rooms Views : the bathrooms were small and cleanliness could be improved·some comment from my partner the rooms were dated and maintenance could be improved. Location· Near the city center and beach. Shopping, sightseeing, restaurants, and bars nearby. Service & facilities: Guests appreciated the friendly staff·Guests spoke highly of the hotel management and housekeeping

Coral Reef Hotel has spacious rooms and a nice sea view. It may seem quite basic, but somehow, it felt quite right in Sri Lanka: it is good enough not to feel any discomfort, and something more comfortable would be out of place in this area, in my opinion. The hotel is situated in front of a glass floor boat...

This hotel is located just on the sea. They have a restaurant area where you can feel the sea waves while eating. The AC room costed 5000 LRK per day. The view from the room was wonderful. However the AC was not working fine and window was broken. The free breakfast is average. Not recommended for food.

We had a great stay in Hikkaduwa. The good thing about our stay at this hotel was the location. We received good food at a great price. But the accountant constantly miss calculated the bill. He kept on making mistakes and adding more than the real sum! My husband had to go and ask them to recheck two times.. The...

When we arrived the hotel didnt have a record of our booking (through our tour operator) and had a party in full swing. There was only skeleton staff due to it being a New Year / Easter holiday so the manager had to go and vacate and clean two rooms for us. (when I say "clean"......) It took over an...

We stayed there for 1 night, nice view from the balcony, right next to the sea (just like most of the places there). There was an a/c and a wifi. Room (and the hotel) were a bit dated and need upgrading. Service was a bit slow. Alltogether just average (in Sri Lankan standars).

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our 10 day trip in Sri Lanka. It was a good place for the price. It was right on the water and easy access to other place up and down the beach. A 100 rupee tuk tuk ride gets you up and down to the good places...

Stayed here for 2 nights in early December of 2012. We stayed in a sea-facing double room with aircon and a balcony which was nice. In the bathroom though there was a dead insect (seemed to have been dead for a while), and furniture on the balcony were a tad filmsy. Owner and staff were friendly - staff tried to...

“May be when your at the hotel have a look at your room and if your not happy ask for another. The bathroom is what need to be checked. I heard second floor rooms are better. But never been there.”
