Fine
It was absolutely fine. Nothing special. Not cheap/expensive. Could be better but no issues.

Nice place with a pool
Good location a short walk from the beach, where there is amazing snorkelling. Pool was nice after a long day in the sun. Rooms were adequate for the price.

Pleasant hotel, enjoyed our stay
When we arrived there was a small mix-up involving one of our A/C rooms. Other than that, our 2-night stay was very pleasant. The staff were generally very helpful. The location is a short, 5-minute walk to the beach where there is amazing snorkelling. The room was nice but they were fixing the stairs next to our room so there was banging outside our window for a good chunk of the day. Other minor things: The bathroom window didn't shut all the way and the mosquito netting didn't fit the bed well. Other than that, we loved hanging out in and around the pool area, which is kept very clean. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel.

Management is incredibly rude
I have been a traveller for many years and have visited more than 70 countries - but I have never been treated as badly as at the Star Holiday Resort. When my wife and I got there, we were informed that the Hotel could not honour our reservation, because all rooms were already booked due to a mistake. I was tired and did not even complain but started looking for another place to stay right away on my cellphone. However, a few minutes later the manager told usthat we could have a room, but only from midnight. I told him, okay, but I was not going to pay for that night, only for the remaining three. He said that this wasnt possible, he could only give me free breakfast. Then my wife said, okay, but please add a bottle of coke. THEN the guy started a rant against us, screaming, so all other guest could hear it, that my wife and I were greedy tourists from a rich country, trying to exploit a third world country. It was unbelievable. He even ran around haressing other guests, telling them how rude we were. Then he told us to leave. I was just stunned and did not want to argue. I told him I just wanted my money back, in Euro, as I paid in Euro using my credit card. As he did not have enough cash, he even asked other guests from Europe for coins. Something like this has never happened to us before, ever.

Great pool
Difficult one this one! The pool and gardens are lovely but there needs to be more loungers around the garden - especially since the are expanding the hotel. We arrived to find that our balcony was a concrete structure with a building site either side. There was a lot of banging and noise during the day and we also had problems with running water. The air con broke one night which kept us awake all night. Sampath got it fixed the next day but I noticed on the last night it was clunking loudly and kept me awake through ear plugs. There are also a lot of barking dogs in the vacinity, but not unusal for Sri Lanka. The family are really lovely and the location is a bit away from the main beach area so good for that but quite a few issues. The better restaurants such as Sunny's Place are about 1km south of here so might be better to get something down that way.

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

Great stay at Star Holiday Resort
Pool, Friendly staff and walking distance from beach
Had a lovely stay at Star Holiday Resort. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Walking distance from the beach made it easy to go and get a round Hikkaduwa. Recommend anyone staying at this resort and I would def visit again. Its clean and have a lovely atmosphere to it. A must stay!!!
