TravelPod Member ReviewsCoral Sands Hotel Hikkaduwa
Very impressed with this hotel and the staff. Everyone in Sri Lanka has been friendly and helpful but here they really go the extra mile. The hotel is located right at the beach, has two good swimming pools and some nice green areas. The rooms are lovely, beds extremely comfortable and bathrooms good (not sure if all are the same, but we welcome a simple shower and not a shower in a bath as in many (even new) places. Restaaurant very good and nice airy location.

We are very happy with the hotel – location couldn't be better, direct on the beach, with 2 swimming pools and nice green areas.

We went to a bar with a pool table and drank beers while playing for the afternoon, with Christmas carols on the background the whole while which was really nice. We met at around 8 at the bar for a drink before dinner, and again the Christmas carols were playing with a couple of sing-a-longs. One of the older men brought out his fiddle which he'd been travelling with and started to play ...
... br> To our surprise the ‘Boss’ turns up and apologises for making us wait and then shows us to a different room. The room was changed because he wanted us to have the King bed and not the two singles pushed together, the occupant of the other room was a single. Relief.
It turned out to be a really nice place to stay and was good value for money.
What we did
It wasn’t the best season for it but we thought we couldn’t ...
... for: crazy driving especially by bus and tuk tuk drivers, haggling and being asked to buy stuff at the beach for 20 times a day, wildlife – loads of it everywhere including the hotel – especially insects (centipedes, millipedes, spiders, mantises, flies, mosquitoes, large bugs of all sorts and butterflies) and geckos
We will definitely come back to Sri Lanka as we love this country and we will be more active next ...
