      The staff were absolutely amazing. The manager went out of his way to help us book train tickets and transport. I have never experienced such helpful and friendly people. The cleaning staff were also very friendly and eager to be of service. An altogether fantastic experience

      Excellent and friendly staff, very helpful with any requests made. Lovely swimming pool which was kept in very good condition, excellent pool attendant who made sure all needs where met.

      The touts outside the back gate are an irritation when trying to relax. Not just waiting at the back fence until you go out but actually shouting over to get attention! The beach is lovely but not the largest, a lot of boats ready for trips therefore not great for swimming, although a quick ten minute walk up the road will bring you to a lovely beach excellent for surfing and sunbathing.

      Very nice stay, we decided to go for coral due to the higher price and it was worth it. Food was very good, location and view was lovely, no sense of crime, easy access to transport, walk onto the beach.... It's was good

    • Couple

      The room was big, with an ocean view. Good interior, comfortable and clean. Staff is very friendly. High quality hotel.

      We had two separated beds, that were placed together. And it was not convinient. One of us usually was between two matresses.

      We were staying in another hotel in Hikkaduwa and decided to extend our stay, but the hotel we were staying was fully booked. So we were obliged to book Coral Sands as it had free rooms. After the hotel we were staying before, we were shocked when we arrived at Coral sands. It looks awful from outside, it has NO beach! People are swimming in a swimming pool, and the hotel is separated from the ocean by a fence. In front of the hotel and around it you can't swim - many boats, dirty water, poor entrance to the water (rocks). We stayed there two days: first day we walked three km to the south to find a good beach and found ourselves in front of the hotel we were staying before )) On the second day we took tuk-tuk and went for the whole day to Unawatuna beach. My opinion is that you should not book such hotels in Sri Lanka - you will be disappointed by poor ocean, nature and awful food. If it is Hikkaduwa, I would advise hotels 2-3km to the south (near Thiranagama railway station). Btw, most 4stars hotels (citrus, Chaya etc.) also don't have normal beaches... So a villa on the seashore should be advisable instead of big hotels, or you will be disappointed.

      The location of the hotel was excellent-right in front of the Marine Park and all the rooms are beach facing. However, make sure that you dont get room numbers 130 and 131 since right in front of these rooms is the pub which blocks the view to the ocean.

      The staff....full stop. I had a really bad experience with one of their waiters. At the time of checkout, I asked for a cold bottle of drinking water and the waiter flatly refused on my face. This was after I had paid for the rooms and was about to move out of the hotel with my bags. This came as a rude shock to me since my 2 nights at the hotel had been fairly comfortable. I had to call in the manager and had the waiter apologize to me before I moved out. I am never again returning to this hotel. I was expecting a lot better after paying $100 a night.

      good all round, excellent staff, two clean quiet swimming pools, very easy access to the beautiful beach. excellent breakfast menu.

      basic (but good) evening menu, very little sea food offered.

    • Family with children
      8.8

      Great location and excellent hospitality. Staff are always eager to help and very courteous. Nice, clean and comfortable rooms. Great location

      The food is too much suited to the European taste. Maybe thats because they predominantly get their clientele from European countries. Being an Indian, I found the food not exactly too my liking.

    • Family with children
      8.8

      Good location, helpful staff, clean rooms, good food, wonderful ocean and excellent room-view.

      Someone stolen money from the purse, which was in the room at the day of our leaving.

    • Group of friends

      the rooms where are not good for the amount paid. We get electric shock on switches.

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      The rooms were spacious and clean. Food was great. good parking space. Value for money.

      Small pool. Smell of boat exhausts which cannot be avoided in this part of the Island.

    • Couple

      Perfect location near the coral reef, good starting point for exploring Sri Lanka. Delicious food (local specialties and western food). The staff is very friendly. Rooms are clean and refurbished. And we also liked chipmunks (or squirrels) living on the ground, they provided tourists with plenty of entertainment :) Overall good choice, especially compared with other hotels in Hikkaduwa.

      Nothing to do with the hotel, but boats on the hotel beach were making it hard and sometimes dangerous to swim. And they are also the reason for constant smell of gasoline.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Pools, close to the beach, easy excess to town, lay out of the Hotel and spaciousness

      They have to work on service standards, which are not bad but could improve a lot with proper training of the staff

    • Couple
      8.4

      Good value for money. Comparing to many other hotels in SriLanka, especially in the countryside, this hotel was really good. Friendly staff, clean, food was the best I had in SriLanka (stayed there after a week traveling from Colombo to Sigyria, Kandy, NewaraEllia). Location is not the best - bit too many waves - as there are better beaches, but this wasn't bad. Overall, definitely recommend!!

      The hotel as most of them on the beach side in Srilanka, was very close to the street and you coudl hear the traffic noise in the mornings. The traffic in sri lanka is really crazy. For us wasn't a problem to be woken up in the morning by the noise, as we anyway were going to swim, look at turtles or other activities before breakfast.

      Good rooms with balconies overlooking the beach; good meals; friendly staff; good value for money on half board
