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.

But it made the day and after feeding and saying hello ...
... perhaps say 'only attraction' as there wasn't really anything else of note. On the beach yesterday we were handed some flyers for a 'Jungle Party' on Jungle Beach. So on return from Galle (and once Tom had finished taking Ibuprofen for back damage he sustained during a rather lame incident in the surf) we commissioned a tuk-tuk to take us to Jungle Beach, it was probably a 15 minute ride but up one side of a hill that the tuk-tuk was barely capable of ...
... sanctuary and we were thinking to go to on the boat through mangrove forest.
My hubby was driving a motorbike for the first time and I have to say he was a very good driver. The wind was blowing into our hair and we were enjoying the road and stunning scenery all around – the colours of the sea were so vivid and extraordinary.
After arriving to the turtle centre we saw small turtles, which were ...
