After my first visit in 2014, I was very much looking forward to coming here again and I wasn't disappointed. The room was the same as before and well maintained, the pool fantastic and the breakfast was delicious. We pre-ordered the Sri Lankan breakfast which was great and I would highly recommend. This is a peaceful, tranquil place and the...

Hikkaduwa can be quite touristy but this hotel is at the opposite end to the crowds and feels much more serene and secluded while still being within good distance to the action. It only has 6 rooms so can feel quite quiet, I'd agree with the earlier reviewer that it maybe lacks atmosphere but that's really all I could fault...

Fabulous rooms with stunning views of the beach and sunset!! We stayed there over Christmas so attended their Christmas Eve Gala dinner - the food was superb with great service and entertainment! Can not say anything negative about the place - would definitely recommend!

This hotel and all the staff are one of these beautiful finds that you hope for on a holiday. My friend found this and I tagged along during travels, it really is a lovely place. Hikkaduwa proper is a short drive to the north and a 10 minute walk north of here reveals a surfer-packed cavalcade of bars, which tends...

First off, I would like to state that we can not fault the service or the amenities at Roman Beach. I felt very good value for money. Room was fantastic, very comfortable and some very nice finishing touches. Location on the beach is very good, beautiful. The only "negative" I would say is the hotel lacks atmosphere... no music playing...

Roman Beach is a property away from the main Hikkaduwa town. The attached beach is always secluded with almost no shops/shacks/vendors which means you really have a virgin beach experience. The beach is not swimmable (at least during July when we visited) but is great for a long walk on the beach. the property itself is top-rate and well maintained...

We stayed here for 3 nights recently and had a fantastic stay. The rooms are lovely with sea view balconies looking over the amazing pool. The staff were incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them! Delicious breakfasts in the mornings too. Location is great, right on the beach!
