Good value, quiet, friendly staff
Location was a short walk from the busiest beach strip, which kept the evening noise low. The family that owns and operates the guesthouse was very friendly and helpful. On-site pool is a nice feature
We enjoyed our stay. Our room was on the second floor and had a nice balcony where we could rinse swimsuits and hang them to dry. The room was simple and spare, but had comfortable Sri Lankan woven cotton bedding and mosquito nets (thankfully!). It was cleaned daily, and we received fresh towels without any requests, which was really nice. The public areas had plenty of seats and were comfortable as long as you sprayed mosquito spray; we sat downstairs at times to use the WiFi. The price made this guesthouse a good value for us. We were here in the off-season month of February, so not sure how prices fluctuate in high season. I do wish Sri Lankan breakfast was a standard option at the hotel restaurant and elsewhere around town. We don't blame the guesthouse for this, but it's a real shame that Hikkaduwa assumes that every tourist wants the same food we can all eat at home. We DO NOT. We always eat the local food when we travel and were VERY disappointed in Hikkaduwa for it's lack of authentic local food. We ate better simple meals in Colombo at family restaurants. Everything in Hikkaduwa seems like they're catering to an assumption of European (specifically Russian) preference for mild flavors. We spoke to many other travellers who agreed with us. It would be SO awesome to have a simple, local restaurant on the beach that just served rice/curry, hoppers, fresh fruit, etc. Hope an industrious Hikkaduwan is reading this :)

Not a bad place for a few nights
They have pool, which is good for the price they ask. Rooms are basic with a minimum equipment. Also, is it quite remote from the beach. You will have to walk 10-15 minutes to get to the swimming spot on a beach.

Good value for money
Daily cleaning, pool, staff
Great value for money with a clean room and swimming pool to chill when you don't want to enter the beach waters after dark. They clean the room daily. Owner is genuinely friendly and kind and his family are approachable too. Food prices are a bit on the higher end though. Big garden compound too and I wanted to extend my stay but it was sold out 😩 So book early

Very pleasant stay at Star Holiday Resprt
Hotel is clean, rooms spacious enough, friendly staff
The hotel star holiday resort we booked through Agoda three nights to start. With The hotel we were immediately very happy. Our stay was extended until the end of our stay in Hikkaduwa. What is important with regard to the hotel we got here: the hotel is clean, rooms spacious enough, bathroom clean, the staff including the owner friendly and helpful. For any information the owner of the hotel is always available. Location of the hotel is good, the beach 5 min walk for a little recreation. The hotel is surrounded by many amazing greenery. Thanks star holiday resort and hotel staff for our pleasant stay in Sri Lanka Hikkaduwa.

Quiet hotel but not worth the money
quiet surroundings, there were not more best things
Booked A/C room but were given fan room at first. Actually A/C was not needed but it's not nice to change room and unpack everything in case you are staying a week. There was hot water in fan room but not in A/C room (?). Additionally there was no place to put your stuff and clothes. Would not go there again - I'd advise to choose some other place as there are many much more better options with same price category in Hikkaduwa.
