Excellent, friendly hotel on the beach

position on beach; friendly, helpful staff ; excellent food
We have stayed at the Citrus on 5 occasions now and will be back. It's position on the beach in Hikkaduwa is good, the deluxe rooms are very comfortable and big enough for two, the food is great, especially the breakfasts, the staff are friendly, very helpful and well organised, the pool is good. The WiFi was fine. The only minor problems were: our inability to turn the temperature on the air conditioning unit up, so we either froze overnight with just a sheet or were too hot if we turned the air con off. We are not fans of buffets so our comments about the food relate to the a la carte menu. The bar staff seem unable to tell the difference between a Singapore Sling and a Pina Colada (I asked for one and got the other) The Citrus Lime and Sodas are not good - don't have All the sun loungers are 'booked' with towels by 7:30am Overall, a great place to stay and we would recommend it

Over Priced!

Location (next to the beach & town), View from the top floor balcony, Rooms were clean
This hotel is extremely overpriced. There are much better places to stay in Hikkaduwa.

Nice location and hospitality

Honeymoon priviledge, breakfast and cleanliness
We are extremely satisfied with the hospitality offered. The thing to take care of is we cant go in the sea in front of hotels because of lots of corels and rocks. We have to walk a front and can go in the sea.

Good place with nice sea view rooms.

For a 3 star , it was way above my expectations. Buffet needs improvement. Most guests go to hikka trans for buffet. It is just Rs200 extra and got lot more to offer..

Big disapointment

Friendly Staff.
We decided to leave after the first night despite booking for 4 nights. The cleanliness of the hotel is poor. The rooms are very basic. You can't swim in the sea in front of the hotel.

One of the best experiences!

The hotel is kinda under rated. We were initially given a room on the 3rd floor and upon request they were kind enough to change it to a toom on the top floor. I will not point out all the pros because its perfect, at least during our three night stay. I will point out the only con i encountered solely for the purpose of improvement. The wifi was not available in the rooms. Thats the only thing that worried me.
