      Don't bother, there are better places to stay”

      -

      Shangrela is definitely not the mythical paradise of Shangri-La! The hotel has harbour/ocean views but not from most of the rooms. It's located walking distance from a fairly boring town (Amabalangoda) and was half-empty, a bit run-down and has a restaurant that is best avoided. Most of the guests seemed to be long stay. The room was large and clean to begin with but no further room cleaning was done during my 3 night stay. There was no hot water and, when I arrived, it took 2 hours, 2 polite and 1 not so polite request to get a towel and soap for the room so I could take a shower. The harbour beach was dirty and the ocean beach only so-so. The saving grace of the area was the nearby turtle conservation project on the beach, staffed by a young and very friendly Sri Lankan man and short-term overseas volunteers, many of whom stayed at the Shangrela.

      Hotel decent but FAR AWAY from Hikkaduwa”

      Quite clean, some nice personel

      The hotel is well overpriced. It's quite run down and most notebly it's located in the town of Ambalangoda 12 km from Hikkaduwa (according to Tuk-tuk meter; about 20-30 mins and 600 rupies one way). The place is alright but the resturant served quite wierd food, with no menu and one dish per day. And the food was the only bad cooked food we had in our three week stay. If you look for a non-turistic quite typical Sri Lankan city and a quite hotel then this place is maybee your choice. The beach is alright and it has a lagoon so you can avoid waves. I would not recomend this hotel tough and you can get a lot more for your money.

      Amazing staff, eager to please their guests.”

      Staff, location/beaches, airport pickup.

      Big room, with fridge and a/c. Room was just okay, seemed a bit older, needed new pillows, but the staff was great! They picked me up in Colombo and waited almost 2 hours due to my flight delayed. Amazing effort to please their guests! I commented I wanted to try a fresh coconut and was excited to eat seafood/local food and the next day I had fresh King coconut, hoppers and other local food, a seafood dinner! There is no menu/prices to reference and 800 rupees for dinner seemed a bit much after spending 100 for curried vegetables and fish with rice in a local restaurant, but the huge breakfasts outdoors and overall attitude of staff and owner made up for the little things lacking. The harbor directly across the road allows for a swim in calmer waters, the beaches are breathtaking here! There is wifi in the lobby/restaurant areas so overall good budget hotel.

      Pratique pendant la folie du Nouvel an à Hikkaduwa”

      La chambre était spacieuse. Balcon agréable. Jardi sympa

      Nous avons passé 2 nuits dans cet hôtel assez confortable. La chambre était spacieuse. La salle de bains est assez basique et mériterait un coup de peinture fraîche. Le personnel était aimable. Cependant, l'hôtel est en fait assez loin de la plage d'Hikkaduwa même. Il faut prendre un tuk tuk ou le bus pour rejoindre les endroits animés. Petit déjeuner très convenable. Pour le wifi il fallait se tenir dans le jardin à proximité de l'accueil. A noter que l'hôtellerie au Sri Lanka est bien loin d'atteindre le niveau rencontré dans d'autres pays d'Asie.

      Приветливый персонал и хорошие завтраки.”

      Близость к тангалле

      Хорошие завтраки, персонал дружелюбный, цены в ресторане слегка завышены по сравнению с обычными на берегу в метрах, но не критично.Чисто, каждое утро уберается территория . Главный недостаток это дорога , фактически под окнами для тех кто выбрал вид на море и отсутствие нормального пляжа в шаговой доступности! Но чтобы остановиться на ночлег, вполне сойдет!

      Shangrela Beach Resort”

      obsługa, położenie, jedzenie

      Stan hotelu w wielu miejscach wymagałby remontu. Z tego co się zorientowaliśmy właścicielem był ktoś z Niemiec. Wygląda na to, że starał się prowadzić hotel przy minimalnych inwestycjach. Obsługa mając do dyspozycji niewielkie możliwości starała się dogodzić gościom, tak aby byli zadowoleni z pobytu. Jesteśmy bardzo zadowoleni z postawy osbługi, trochę mniej z warunków w pokojach. Co prawda w hotelu było czysto, jednak problemem był jedynie stan wyposażenia, według mnie nieco poniżej lankijskiej niskobudżetowej średniej co skutkuje niezbyt korzystnym stosunkiem jakości do ceny.
