1). Colonial set up in the rooms, with antique beds and mosquito nets - Great rooms 2). The price was 5000rs per night but worth it with a fridge in the room 3). Like other hotels, they have beds on the beach and restaurant facing the beach(we didn't eat from the restaurant)-just a few juices and based on that I... More

The location is really great with the sea view. The room was clean and big. It depends on how much you are willing to pay. People are nice. They dont accept card payments so you need to have cash. And if you need to have wi-fi on your holidays - here it's very slow.

Found Hotel Ritas after walking along the beach one day. The room was on the second floor and had a fan rather than A/C. It was clean, the water was warm, bed comfy and it faced the ocean and all for 5500LKR a night. I found the manager very welcoming and friendly along with the other staff. The breakfast was... More

As we were disappointed with the breakfast in our hotel we found ourselves in Ritas most mornings where all of the food is freshly prepared. We also ate there twice for lunch too and curries are excellent and come with all of the trimmings and are excellent value particularly the breakfast curries. I thoroughly enjoyed a huge glass of real... More

Rita's hotel was all I expected and more. Not only do the offer a fantastic location, but the staff and manager, Tarindu were more than accommodating, they treated us like family. The rooms were immaculate and offer hot water and A/C. ( also rooms without if you are on a budget). The restaurant staff were wonderful (even if you wanted... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks and it became our home away from home. The staff are super friendly, especially the bar man Gayan. The food is good, I wouldn't say amazing but it's better than a lot of the restaurants on the beach. Service is way faster here than anywhere else on the beach as well. There's room for... More

As long as you know what to expect. This is NOT a fancy hotel. Rita´s is a guest house with what is THE BEST LOCATION in all of Hikkaduwa beach. Rooms are everything from cheap simple rooms with only fan, to super beachfront rooms with balconies with-seaview.. The restaurant is cheap, and not much special, service is slow but friendly....
