We stayed at Sunbeach for over a week and were pleasantly surprised though it is quite a cheap hotel. We loved their Sunbeach breakfast and the rest of their menu as well. But be prepared to wait up till an hour to get your order. Tree house room is nice with a great view from the balcony.

The perfect place in the perfect spot. The staff is friendly and professional, the beach is wonderful for both surfing and relax, and food is extraordinary. Most of the rooms have a beautiful sea view, bars and clubs are at walking distance. Chaminda, the manager, is nice, helpful and very professional. Highly recommended :)

This is my second visit to Sunbeach and I enjoyed my visit as much as the first time. The staff are very welcoming and I loved the buffet dinners. The new balconies are a nice touch on the seafront rooms. I was happy to see that the menu had some new additions and the food was still a bit of a notch up from much of the food you get on the beach. It is still good value for money and still the best spot on Hikkaduwa beach for a low key relaxed stay. The tree in the garden and the friendliness of the staff makes this hotel special.

Room tip: Balcony rooms are worth the extra

We stayed at the beautiful Sunbeach over New Year for our honeymoon and had the most wonderful trip.

All the staff and guests were incredibly friendly and welcoming. We felt instantly relaxed and at ease in the beautiful surroundings. The staff put on a breathtaking fireworks display for New Year which I would highly recommending trying to see!

The Hotel manager, Chaminda, arranged an amazing boat trip of the Blue Lagoon we watched the sunset as we were rowed around spectacular scenery by a local man and his son. They also stopped at a local temple for us to visit. It was a truly magical experience.

The food at the hotel was delicious, they cook from fresh so we could ask it for as spicy or mild as we wanted. The Curry banquets are amazing, make sure you stay for one of these!! The cocktails were great, so refreshing to sit on the deck and watch the sunset in the evening.

I could not recommend Sunbeach enough, we will definitely be going back again and lots of our friends have also stayed and would go again.

Room tip: I would recommend one of the rooms on the second floor with the balcony over looking the beach and the garden.

A small hotel with a friendly staff. Spent one night in a room upstairs. It has a magnificent view of the indian ocean. The balcony is spacious and an ideal place to have the morning tea and evening drink. The sea breeze gives you a chillful feeling. The place is very calm and quite and the surrounding is very peaceful. Ideal for a couple/family. Clean rooms and bathrooms. But need some improvements in bathrooms and rooms and as well as the garden. Parking space is not sufficient compared to the rooms available. And you wont get a good feeling until u see the room and the beach. First impression of the hotel is very less and need work on more marketing strategies to make awareness of the hotel. The prices are reasonable compared to the other hotels in the area. Meals will be arranged on request.
