just back from citrus hotel in hikkaduwa, have to say was pleasantly suprised with hotel after reading some of the reviews on here, the hotel was most comfortable, rooms large and well air conditioned, clean and comfortable. all of the staff in this hotel were so friendly and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. the food was fabulous, so much choice and well presented.
the situation of the hotel on the beach couldn't have been better and very relaxing lying on sunbeds gazing out over the indian ocean. we did numerous excursions from hotel with own personal driver, the island is so beautiful, so many places to visit which we were very pleased with as we do not like just sitting around pool or beach all day.
i would recommend this hotel and the island of sri lanka to everyone, beautiful place, beautiful people. although on first sight the hotel looks a little tired and could do with a make over we were not put off in any way, service, cleanliness and quality of food more than made up for the decor.

Hotel has a small pool and is a bit tired. The beach is clean and very accessible but swimming is difficult next to the hotel due to the reef. The hotel is not 5* and we did not pay 5* rates so what you get is pretty fair. The room was more than adequate and the staff were always helpful( most Sri Lankans are very nice people anyway). We enjoyed the meals - we like curry etc but guests who do not like local food could struggle to find something to eat on some days.
There are resident turtles that can be fed with seaweed(the pale green stuff) further up the beach where there are big rocks in the sea.

Easy to walk into Hikkaduwa for shopping or just looking around.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing us as your beach resort for your visit to Sri Lanka. We hope you had an enjoyable time with memorable memories of Sri Lanka.

Although the sea area directly in front of the hotel is difficult to swim in, a swim-able sea is within walking distance to the hotel. The advantage of having a coral reef close to the hotel is that the property has regular visitors of sea turtles and sea urchins, as you have experienced.

We are a modest beach resort trying our best to provide genuine, heart-warming service to our guests. We are glad that you have managed to experience just that, from the clean rooms, delicious meals and hospitable staff.

Thank you for choosing us for your holiday and we hope to see you soon.

Best wishes,

We went to spend a day at Citrus last Sunday which was indeed a WOW experience with all the hospitality, food & comfort we had during the stay. Buffet price was given at a even low rate & we were surprised as we got to know the price only once we landed & which let us save some bucks. The quality of the Food & the gentleness of the staff was outstanding & we had much more than what we expected. And the smiles each staff member gave us every time we see them was so warm & welcoming. We are glad finally we found CItrus as lot of giant hotels in the area had no value for their prices. The private beach area was so calm & quite as we had our day without any interruption from outsiders. This is a must visit hotel in Hikka if you going that way...

Was there on May 7th and i was just blown away with the hospitality ! its truly amazing i actually have so many memories at this hotel but the Staff made my day! the facilities are amazing compare to most of hotels around Hikkaduwa Sri Lanka and one i notice all the time the staff were so into indulge the guests all the time i really meant that!. i had a chat with Ms Inoka and the way they treat to me even for a very small time was absolute amazing.

One Amazing thing was they have a great buffet for the breakfast and cater all the needs also they have chef that actually cook what you need early in the morning !!! they all are amazing with the gust services as my mind blows away !!!

security is good and really clean hotel apart from flies (i guess due to season) and the pool is small but its really great and very clean!!

they have a really nice beach very clean and wide with sun bunks and all the facilities we need :)

One thing that you will notice once you entered the welcoming modern architectural ornament of a person that has a plastic modern look :)

The architecture is amazing as its refurbished recently !
Food Is really great !! (if you can eat out all :) )

In the Night it has the picturistic view from far and its has the feeling of more spaces all the time
I Really enjoyed the small time i had in there !!!!

Room Tip: you will not miss the Sea from any room all are great !!!!
