Great hotel along a great beach
Main Reef was one of the good hotels we stayed in during our Sri Lanka trip. It was along the Hikkaduwa beach front, which was convenient. The rooms were clean and air-conditioned (a must to anyone going during the summer). The breakfast was the best! We had toast, fruits and yogurt (best yogurt ever). The staff were nice and friendly, although slow at times. Had a hard time getting the bill everytime. But other than that, our experience was great! Thumbs up!

Good place to stay
Excellent location, good breakfast, nice room
This is a good place located right on the beach. Staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean, comfortable and has a beautiful wood ceiling, and breakfast was also very good. The place just has a good vibe and I wished we could have stayed longer than 3 nights. Only downsides were there was weak WiFi in the room, the shower pressure wasn't good, and there was a band playing next door till 2am one night. I would definitely recommend this guest house and would stay there again for sure.

Such a lovely location
Location, room, staff
My stay at Main Reef Surf Hotel was really lovely. After a stroll along much of Hikkaduwa Beach I was pleased that the location was probably the best. Eating in the candlelit restaurant on the beach with the waves crashing into the shore just a few footprints away is a must. The food is fresh and delicious, the staff are attentive and polite and my room was clean and comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would recommend the hotel to everyone.

super nice and relaxed little place
People, food and location
The place is family run and feels like a home away from home. Rooms are spotless clean and the service is amazing. I was there during low season and while most places where empty this place was still full. The food is amazing and being right on the beach, it is to place to be in Hikkaduwa

An ace little place- great stay!
Family ran business- all staff were ace, feels like a private beach, breakfast
Our stay was ace. 4 friends staying there- they looked after us great. Breakfast was amazing- so much food. Staff are brilliant! Would be an amazing surfing spot in high season. Perfect location is low season which is when we were there. A hugely recommended place.
