“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

I stayed at Coral Rock by Amaya recently. It is located on the sea beach. Excellent place for snorkeling and scuba diving. Food quality was excellent. Staff members were very courteous. Excellent hotel with great stay.

Stayed one night at this enchanting hotel. Natural settings with a pool near the Indian Ocean. This is an excellent place to stay and ideal for snorkeling and diving . It is possible to stay any days here as it is in the center of Hikkaduwa .

We were staying at coral rock at the end of our tour of the country. A perfect hotel for rest and relaxation. The food is great and service prompt. The first few days the hotel was half full so we had most of the facilities to ourselfs. Close to the station and to the shops and divecenters.

Fantastic relaxing time in a very clean and well presented hotel, it is in a great location with wonderful views and pleasant staff serving very good food. We will definitely return and this was by far the best part of our trip, swimming with the giant turtles that frequent the beach is a must.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

This Hotel was situated in Galle road itself, and was accessible to the town. Overall the hotel was small compared to expected. We booked a triple room and for what it looked like, they had stuffed an extra bed to a double room but charged the rate of a triple room. The room was a little cramped up. But the food was really good, They had a good spread and good choice of food. The staff was friendly and obliging. The beach was clean and unpopulated unlike other beaches in Hikkaduwa. Overall it was good hotel and we had great vacation.
