We stayed at Royal Beach in early Feb 2017. We had a fantastic week. Kumar the hotel owner went above and beyond for us. We had transport arranged to and from the airport, he arranged a driver at 4am to take us to see the Whales in Mirissa, he spent a day driving us around all the popular sightseeing hotspots...

Hotel Royal Beach saved my life after a couple of unpleasant experiences with the hotels in Hikkaduwa. The rooms they first offer are rather expensive (between 60$ and 90$), but you can also choose a non-AC room which does not include breakfast for 3,000 lkr (less than 20$). This seems to be the minimum price for the area, regardless of...

Beautiful garden on arrival but we were soon faced the reality of this 2 * hotel. Room had a strong moldy smell, ( another reviewer here mentioned having a moldy mattress), I thought it was from the mattress). Sheets are yellowed and old-stained, no blankets or hand towels to be had, they don't keep them. No toiletries, no tea making...

We booked through Agoda and when we arrived they said they don't deal with Agoda and don't know how we booked. So firstly do not book through Agoda even though it's a reparable sight. Therefore the problem of payment arose where Agoda usually charges the card automatically but they wanted payment. He was very rude and unhelpful and would not...

The Hotel Royl Beach is a family-run hotel beautiful located at the beach. The ocean is too rough to swim with small children but very nice to watch and good for surfers.The coral reef that some people write about, we found to be highly overraided since there is very bad visibility and the ocean is rough. We did see turtles...

Booked a room in person just through the man in charge for the day in reception. Got the price for the room. Then the next day when I went to pay and the price had magically gone up overnight above on what the room price was agreed on. So I had to pay extra. Worst of all the staff member...

If would like your breakfast on the beach and dinner with amazing sunsets, this is your hotel. The hotel was very easy to find and is offering a wide variety of rooms. Some are with sea view and a balcony, some are situated fifteen meters from the street and offer no quiet time throughout the day and night. Some are...

Rooms are really small, no place to put your clothes, few towels (no beach towels), no shampoo or shower gel. Breakfast was modest. But price is low and location is straight on the beach. A real budget place. Not worth the price.
