Coral Sands Hotel, Hikkaduwa
Very Good8.0
Awesome views, service, Bad wifi.
Location and seaview rooms were amazing. The breakfast and dinner buffet were included in the stay there and were very good. The only downside to this place is the wifi. There is no wifi in the rooms. The wifi in the common spaces is not the best. For the amount of money this place cost, you would think they would have figured this part out. I had better wifi at $15 a night guest houses. Would recommend this place if you do not need wifi/internet during your stay. I needed it for work.

Over rated and over priced
This hotel is totally over rated and over priced! The staff is extremely friendly and the beach is lovely though. But the room smelled horrible, apparently from insecticide. The bathroom had black mold in the ceiling and the fridge was very dirty. The bed had only sheets, no blanket. The WiFi worked ok after a struggle during the first few days. The breakfast was very mediocre and only served from 0730-0930. The pool area is new and nice, but very crowded with beach chairs, that gets reserved with towels already very early in the morning. Horrible traffic right outside the door. I wouldn’t stay here again, though there seemed to be a lot of frequent visitors, mainly older Europeans.

Only if you want to visit Hikkaduwa
Hikkaduwa has a limited hotel base and I would only recommend it to people who really want to see the coral reef. The "marine park" is one of the busiest and most polluted beaches in Sri Lanka. Hundreds of diesel boats operate on the beach all day long. Snorkeling in the reef is unpleasant and dangerous due to heavy boat traffic. The porch in front of our room had an intense diesel fumes smell and we could only enjoy it around sunset when the marine traffic was less. The hotel is aging and the deluxe rooms are small and need renovations. Room and bathroom equipment looks very cheap. Ground rooms give little privacy but a nice ocean view due to a large window. Restaurant staff is more like a police asking you the room number 3 times during each meal and making double sure you signed the bill for any extra drinks before leaving. They were less attentive to guests requests and the food quality was very inconsistent. Also, if they want the foreigners to enjoy the local food they should not overload it with copious amounts of chilly flakes which ruin the taste and the stomach. Very limited vegetarian options. Pool had a medium size but the water was suspiciously cloudy. Pool attendants mostly concerned with rationing the towels which they always hand over reluctantly. Overall the hotel needs urgent renovations and the staff should be trained in hospitality.
