                Nice stay in Hikkaduwa”

                Citrus Hikkaduwa is worth for the price we paid. Our standard rooms were upgraded to Deluxe and the views from the rooms are very nice. Deluxe rooms are well maintained and clearly the rooms have 5 Star standard (Though Citrus Hikkaduwa is a 3 Star hotel). Check-in Check-outs are very fast. They have a nice swing and rotating wooden chairs facing towards the sea and in the evening you can relax with beverages. The Breakfast was really good. The pool is facing the sea and it's not very exciting but it's fine. Only drawback is you cannot bath in the sea and you need to walk to find a better spot (Not so long though). The prices of the restaurant/bar also very reasonable. We had a Chicken burger for LKR 800 and it was enough for our dinner though we ordered it as an evening snack. the restaurant has an outside seating area which faces the sea. Overall we had a very good experience. Highly recommend! Anushka Wijepala

                The hotel was beautiful and clean. But we didn’t receive a welcome drink and we had to remind them about our luggage as we were waiting in our rooms for about half an hour. Buffets were not worth enough for the money But the quality of the food was good

                We made a reservation for 4 standard rooms, but the management was kind enough to upgrade them into Deluxe rooms free of charge with free fruit platters served. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was a proper English and Sri Lankan. Really enjoyed the stay with secure parking facilities and driver accommodations separately. Can be highly recommended.

                decent place, but much more nearby”

                The staff here was incredible and helpful. "Desiree" was very accomodating. She even let us keep our stuff there for half the day, which you would normally expect with a guesthouse, not a hotel. If you want a pool and a buffet this is the place to go to. You can easily forget you are in Hikkaduwa. It's a busy place, but easy access to Galle (20 minute local us). There are other options nearby for lesser price. The rooms can use a little furniture update.

                It’s a great place to stay.... Staff were friendly caring and pleasant, starting from the reception. Meals are very good and delicious... I highly recommend the hotel for locals and foreigners. I would probably choose Citrus hotel next time as I have experience warm welcomes of the staff, excellent service and pleasantness of hotel crew.

                Citrus Hikkaduwa is an excellent to relax! Great location, great food, and an inviting pool just in front of the Indian Ocean. The staff is kind and always willing to help and support guests. It is sad they don't have Spa Ceylon anymore, as it is the best spa in Sri Lanka! Only one recommendation.. the chairs in the restaurant and really uncomfortable. It doesn't allow you to enjoy the good food the restaurant offers.

                Hotel is just on the beach and close to Hikkaduwa village. It's not swimmable where hotel locates but the view is amazing. It was a beautiful experience to sleep with wave sounds all night long. Breakfast was OK, I also had dinner there and I liked it. Staff is careful, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, but need a renovation for balcony door and bathroom. If hotel management deal with the renovation, I'm sure this hotel will be the best in the area.

                This hotel consider very good location, nice & friendly staff. The environment here is very good & you feel relaxing to staying here. I like to sun bathing at the pool side and looking at the sea with sunset. This hotel serve alot of Russian. During my stay I saw majority of the guest is Russian & most of the staff know how to speak Russian. The blanket inside the room is too thin and you will get cold at night, you need to request another blanket from them. Buffet dinner is not bad. Overall this hotel is very good except the blanket issue.

                staff, food and the beach

                We reached Citrus hotel on a little before the scheduled check-in time. Upon arrival we were greeted nicely at the reception. We booked through Agoda and there was a minor hiccup with our booking as the hotel was overbooked with travelers and had to undergo some untimely renovation. But they sorted out issue fine and offered us a free dinner buffet for our hassle. The staff was very courteous would like to specially mention the guy at the restaurant, always served us with a smile. Rooms may be were a bit small compared to many other places but they had nice view of the ocean. But the bed was comfortable. I personally don't mind room being small so I was fine with it. On the flip side may be they could think about making their bathrooms a bit bigger. Overall: nice hotel, one of the best in the area and definitely my place to stay in Hikkaduwa

                Comfortable new rooms, although some of the furniture finishings were a bit rough but did not really bother us much. Nice decent sized pool. Good location with nearby restaurants and right by the beach. Sea was a bit rough while we were there so didn't manage to snorkel or do sea sports. Would recommend this hotel for a short stay at a reasonable price.

                location, food and swimming pool great”

                We had a great stay in this hotel. Breakfast and dinner buffet was reasonable. And staff were very friendly and professional. Kids really loved the swimming pool which was clean and well maintained. But somedays there were noisy local groups in the swimming pool.

                Stayed 8 nights in November 2018

                Good value”

                Stayed for eight nights end of November. Paid about £40 pn for single use of double on bed and breakfast. Good value. Decent-sized room, TV, fluffy pillows, plenty of hanging space (but only two hangers!) Main light didn't work, otherwise no problems. En suite functional, good walk-in shower. Breakfasts very good (plenty of choice) and set me up for the day - plenty of fruit (papaya, melon, passion fruit, bananas), curd and honey, mixed omelette with grilled tomatoes, potatoes and beans, brioche, danish pastries. Hotel not very impressive from road but in good location, fronting onto long sandy beach. Very nice pool. Guests mostly Russian and East European. Apart from breakfast, didn't eat in hotel (plenty of cheaper eateries along main road) so can't comment on quality/value of other meals.

                Stayed 1 night in March 2019

                Doesn't meet the expectations”

                We were a group of 8 and book 4 rooms. All of the rooms were declared as "with sea view" but only one had a partial view of the beach and all the other rooms were blocked by the pool which was above the ground level. All we saw were grass banks. Doesn't meet up with the standards with a citrus group hotel.
