I understand that Hikkaduwa is a pretty beach which has life but is not full of loud, drunken Europeans. If that's the case then ideally what I'm looking for there is like a beach hut, but upmarket - clean and comfortable with a proper bathroom - somewhere that has character rather than being just any hotel / B&B and looks like it belongs to the pretty beach - somewhere I can relax with a sea view, but can easily walk out onto the beach from, maybe with gardens - not too expensive but not too basic either.
Any one got any recommendations? (Looking on Trip Advisor, Hotel Blue Note looks like it may be nearest to what I'm looking for). I'll be staying there first week in April.
