We Loved Roman Beach hotel! The staff was awesome the food was great, and we felt like we had the place to ourselves! Hikkaduwa itself leaves a bit more to be desired however staying just far enough away on the beach was fantastic! Everyone working here was super friendly and accommodating! We ate most of our meals here as the...

This hotel was recommended by our tour operator Holiday Designers. The hotel was a good standard throughout, with friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. It was conveniently located, whilst still being set in a quiet area.

I stayed at Roman Beach with my girlfriend for 2 nights as an escape from the busier side of Hikkaduwa. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the service here. We received a friendly welcome from the receptionist and swiftly after had a glass of fruit juice given to us while our room was prepared. The reception...

My hubbie and I have just returned after spending a lovely week here. A last minute change in plans meant we stayed the entire week at the Roman Beach and we really enjoyed it. We loved the fact there's only 6 rooms so it wasn't busy and it's also at the best end of the beach which wasn't too busy....

First off, I'd like to mention that me and my family have been to many big and overly expensive 5+ star hotels over the years. When we booked this place we were a bit anxious about the size of the hotel, since there are just 6 rooms, which is not something we are used to. Our anxieties however, were put...

After my first visit in 2014, I was very much looking forward to coming here again and I wasn't disappointed. The room was the same as before and well maintained, the pool fantastic and the breakfast was delicious. We pre-ordered the Sri Lankan breakfast which was great and I would highly recommend. This is a peaceful, tranquil place and the...

Hikkaduwa can be quite touristy but this hotel is at the opposite end to the crowds and feels much more serene and secluded while still being within good distance to the action. It only has 6 rooms so can feel quite quiet, I'd agree with the earlier reviewer that it maybe lacks atmosphere but that's really all I could fault...
