Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nicoya is the ideal spot in the region as it is situated close to Sigiriya for the climbers out there and also offers an epic Jeep Safari for anyone looking to get up close with wild elephants!!

I arrived around lunchtime and settled into a very comfortable airconditioned room (absolutely essential in the jungle) before departing on a jeep safari - which was an exciting adventure, to say the least. Upon my return, I had a hot shower (rooms come with fantastic ensuites) and I was delighted to learn a sumptuous feast had been prepared for this wayward traveller!! I was treated to at least 6 different local dishes ranging from meat curries to vegetable stir-fries all served with rice and followed by plates of fruit and bowls of ice cream to cool off. Bloody brilliant!!

Me and my girlfriend spent 3 pleasent nights in Nicoya Safari Resort. Located nearby Habarana centre, its in a strategic position to reach Minnerya, Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura and Sigirya.
Rooms are simple, but clean, comfortable, and spacy. We also had three typical delicious singalese dinners and breakfasts.
Everything is really cheap.
A very recommended esperience!

I stayed here with my son and 2 friends. We came to be close to the national park which we were.

Peter the manager is just perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for him, even arranging our jeep safari and providing a wonderful breakfast for us all by him self

Rooms are basic but just what you need for a few nights in Habanera, spacious, clean and cool thanks to the A/C and ceiling fan.

Would definitely return if ever in the area again. 👌

I moved to this hotel after initially staying at another. There is a feeling of complete relaxation here and you will be very well looked after. The sound of the birds and the garden and trees make for a lovely visual and auditory experience. The fruits, vegetables and spices are grown in the garden and you can even get a cooking lesson. (I got mine although I have trouble even cooking a frozen dinner lol). I really enjoyed my stay here and highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at Nicoya as we wanted to do a jeep Safari and see the elephants in the Park. Having arrived at lunchtime and settled in to a comfortable room we then departed on a jeep safari - which was fantastic. On our return and after relaxing with a beer we had a sumptuous repast with Chicken curry amongst 8 different local dishes all served with rice and followed by a fruit plate. Excellent all round - book soon!

Comfortable rooms and very calm place for a person who likes the nature. Thanks it's very near to the Minneriya national park and you can travel to lots of places from there such as Sigriya etc. and when you go to the top floor of the restaurant building you can see the famous Sigiriya Rock. Also the a good place for bird 🐦 watchers.

Just arrived for one night but would have stayed longer if I had known the resort.
Large clean rooms; excellent service and carefully prepared local food. I can recommend it for a stay without frills for a completely relaxed holiday in the middle of nature.

After a few days at a busy resort this was a perfect venue for relaxing. Nice, simple room in a 'colonial style' building, well looked after. The manager can't do enough for you, he showed us his fruit orchard, from which he harvests ingredients for his terrific cooking, and saw us onto the bus when we left. Great service, very friendly staff, perfect spot for relaxing, with local tuk tuks on hand to take you to the local sights.
