For me it’s the location which is the real draw. Go out the back to the beach turn left for about 5 mins you will see green turtles coming to the rocks to feed. In fact I don’t think the rocks are attracting more like tourists that hand feed them now. Turn right for 5 mins you ca

We came here for lunch and the information provided by the staff was terrible.

They did not inform us that the swimming pool, that is part of the restaurant/bar, was not accessible for us. Once we wanted to go into the pool they wanted to overcharge us with no explanation.

Response from Siri_G_12, Managing Director at Coral Sands Hotel
Responded yesterday
Greetings from Coral Sands Dear Guest, We are astonished to note the contents of your review. The 2 pools located within our premises are for the use of the resident guests. As to be expected non- resident guests would need to purchase pool tickets for the use of the pool as done elsewhere. All those who drop by for lunch are well aware that pool use would carry an additional charge. Ours is a 3 star property. Unlike stand-alone restaurants that offer wifi to their patrons ours is offered only to resident guests. We hope we have cleared the misconceptions you have had regarding our hotel & it’s facilities. Kind regards, Siri E Goonewardene Managing Director, Coral Sands Hotel Ltd., Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka

We stayed here for 3 nights overall. We requested a room with a sea view and we got exactly that. Perfect location to restaurants/bars and shops. We had no need for transport the whole time we were here. It may not be the fanciest hotel in regards to decor etc. However, I would r

I stayed at this hotel on a half board basis between 4th and 11th November 2018 as part of a large group watching England v Sri Lanka at Galle. Our room was on the ground floor and you stepped onto the terrace and were literally on the beach 6 yards away. The staff at this hotel

I had high expectations of the hotel room at Coral Sands as my experiences in Sri Lanka had been very positive. This hotel maintained my good fortune!

The room was smallish BUT had a huge terrace overlooking the ocean. The fleet of small fishing boats bobbed gently in the water

Where can you snorkel near this hotel? Can you do from beach or need to go by boat? I would like to see turtles
Go out through the hotel beach gate and onto the beach. Turn right and walk for appx 100 yds. Swim straight out from the shore to towards the nearby reef, and the turtles will be waiting for you. But please, please don't feed them.. Also be mindful when snorkelling of the little tourist glass bottom boats as they are also in the area doing stupid and dangerous 'wheelies' in the area to amuse their passengers and for good measure they chuck over loads of bread etc which is no good at all for the marine environment at all. Complete morons. One of the hotel guest booked a boat trip out to some reefs further awy and were sorely disappointed . Just saying.

do you know why hikkaduwa is famous , corals and surfing and snorkeling and night life ,,, but after 9.00 pm this hotel all need to sleep nothing to do , because no party aria here ,, because this hotel haven't any nice thing for young customer ,,,, i'm sure , if this hotel have new young general manager i think he can understand about feeling of new young customer ,,, but this old general manager didn't know that ,, that old manager and general manager try to do the tourism like a 1980 ,,, but now 2017 new people , new think , new generation ,,,, crazy old man must go home now and must have a rest ,, and must come this hotel for new general manager ,,, i'm sure after this hotel well be very nice
This is a hotel where people are coming to relax during their holidays. Taking the available space into account, I do not see where you could make a party area without disturbing the guests who are sleeping. If you are looking for a place to party you should go to the island of Ibiza (Spain). I have not seen the General Manager but I do not see what his age has to do with it. Being a Hospitality Consultant myself I think I know what I am talking about.
