We stayed here for 3 nights recently and had a fantastic stay. The rooms are lovely with sea view balconies looking over the amazing pool. The staff were incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them! Delicious breakfasts in the mornings too. Location is great, right on the beach!

Hi Thank you for your review. Yes I do agree during this period the beach can be rough as it is still not the safe time. The real season starts from December till end March when the sea is really calm . My favorite too is Hoppers and Milk rice :-) Please come again. Ward regards Shiran

Stayed at Roman Beach for 5 nights during low season (beginning of August), If you do your research beforehand you'll know it's quiet in Hikkaduwa around this time. The hotel itself was peaceful, and staff were very friendly and accommodating, catering to any and all needs, including booking local tours which came out best for price compared to local tour...

This is more of a boutique hotel. The room and Bathroom is just extraordinary and we just loved it. May be one among the best of our lots in world travel.
