Has all that you need minus character --- wifi, AC, warm shower, close to everything.... Good location. Nice staff. But the restaurant wasn't really functional. Rooms were clean and basic. It is a cheap place to rest.

Situated in the Beach Ritas has its own Restaurant & sunbeds, Recommended for Budget travelers. Staffs are friendly but can be slow in service sometimes. Rooms are average but please bring your own towels & toiletries .

The place is located perfectly on the beach which was why I chose too tay here. The rooms are fairly comfy but could do with a bit of TLC. The room had not been cleaned very thoroughly at all however. Lots of dust and dirt on the surfaces, they looked like they hadn't been cleaned properly in some time. This...

It took us a couple of hours to get accomodated after our arrival to the hotel. The staff was really slow and not really caring for a start. Rooms are -some big &nice, some really small and a bit musty. It is better if you take AC room and from seaside. Quite good food at BBQ, rather expensive though,compared to...

A lot of the beach in Hikkaduwa is disappearing and becoming very narrow. The hotels north of Rita's do not even have a beach area for loungers. Ritas, however, has plenty of beach beds in a perfect central location. The surf break is dead ahead and there are lots of really nice restaurants close by. The restaurant at Rita's is...

Our room (23) was clean, quiet and comfortable. The beach is lovely, quite crowded though as it was high season and probably not enough sun beds for every guest. Food was okay, the continental breakfast was nice! Avoid the travel agent directly across the road from Rita's at ALL COSTS. We tried to get a car to colombo with them...

This hotel is perfectly located in front of both the sand break & reef break (surfers). The rooms are simple but confortable (bed might be better but still ok). The restaurant is as the hotel: efficient & simple. I would recommend the rooms in front of the sea if available: perfect view. I stayed 2 nights and enjoyed them.

Location on the beach is excellent, the staff was average and the food mediocre. We stayed there just before the season (October) and paid 1000 LKR for a double room which isn't to bad when you are travelling with another person. The hotelmanager is friendly however a little bit vague..
