Ocean View Cottage Hikkaduwa Reviews
Jun 29, 2010
Rooms are large and clean. Most have balcony looking out towards the sea.
The pool is very clean as well ... that comes in handy as if you come at the wrong time (like I did), the sea is downright dangerous. Supposedly the currents are stronger south of Hikkaduwa (eg. here).
And during the off-season, their inhouse restaurant will not have many of its menu items available ... it is the same in neighbouring gueshouses too, though.
It is 10-15 minutes walk to where most of the shops and eateries are. It is too far in the heat of the day but quite a nice walk in the evenings.
Fortunately, there is a simple eatery 1 minute walk away. Exit the guesthouse and turn right (sign "Curry & Rice").
Having looked at other places, I definitely prefer staying here ... including compared to Rita's (the other places offered on the internet). Rita's has a nicer eating environment though.
