Stayed for 6 nights in room 316. The room was shabby. No storage space for clothes and a rusty fridge. The bathroom was disgusting, smelly drains, mouldy tiles and rotten door and frame. The only ventilation in the bathroom was a very narrow ceiling height louve window. There was access to a roof terrace via steps from the bedroom but...

It is located at a highly commercialized area of Hikkaduwa. There are many shops and super markets along the galle road where the hotel is situated. The Sandagiri supermarket...

Perfect location, friendly staff, tactful managers, big comfortable beds, delicious food, sunny weather…we had everything we dreamt about. Our friends from Germany recommended us this hotel and we stayed very satisfied. The outdoor sitting areas throughout the resort are perfect for an evening glass of wine. The only regret is that the ocean is too rough to swim, however the...

This was my first time at a Citrus hotel and the experience was bad. The hotel was like a budget hotel. Rooms badly need renovations, pool has so much chlorine. Its good if your objective is to live the entire day outside the hotel. Not worth the price and standard is very poor.

What do I say? Too many memories and we loved our stay. Choosing this hotel for 1 of our honeymoon days was an excellent decision. The staff are so courteous and they gave us a fruit basket and cake for the same. There's an incredible restaurant near by that serves fresh fish, mussels and prawns... It was out of the...

Ive been here twice in the last four years. The first time was four years ago and I stayed for 2nights and just had breakfast (decent spread, typical buffet style).
