    For the price, it’s right on the beach with a decent room. Nothing flashy, but if that’s what you expect, book a more expensive place.

    Upper backpacker quality”

    When the sheets aren't white you know it's not a hotel. More a guesthouse, a backpacker would think it fancy. Bathroom and room is clean, and if you get a good room, your balcony overlooks the beach. Breakfast was good, staff are friendly. You're right on the beach.

    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!

    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.
