Why Not? Hikkaduwa Reviews
Nice beachside guesthouse Jan 25, 2010
I looked around a few places in Hikkaduwa before staying here. There are a load of guesthouses to choose from, all very similar. I ended up paying more than I wanted (LKR1,200 for a double room), but I was getting tired of walking round (and very hot and sweaty!). The rooms are ok, cold water only in the shower. Not the cleanest bathroom you'll ever set foot in though! Restaurants serves pretty good food at a reasonable rate for Hikkaduwa. They also offer a laundry service, at about LKR50 per t-shirt, which is pretty expensive.
The guesthouse is right on the beachfront and they have sunloungers which make it easy to chill out and get some sun.
Overall, not a bad experience, but nothing to wrote hom about.
