Nice stay in Hikkaduwa”

Citrus Hikkaduwa is worth for the price we paid. Our standard rooms were upgraded to Deluxe and the views from the rooms are very nice. Deluxe rooms are well maintained and clearly the rooms have 5 Star standard (Though Citrus Hikkaduwa is a 3 Star hotel). Check-in Check-outs are very fast. They have a nice swing and rotating wooden chairs facing towards the sea and in the evening you can relax with beverages. The Breakfast was really good. The pool is facing the sea and it's not very exciting but it's fine. Only drawback is you cannot bath in the sea and you need to walk to find a better spot (Not so long though). The prices of the restaurant/bar also very reasonable. We had a Chicken burger for LKR 800 and it was enough for our dinner though we ordered it as an evening snack. the restaurant has an outside seating area which faces the sea. Overall we had a very good experience. Highly recommend! Anushka Wijepala

Great location and hotel”

the pool

Citrus Hikkaduwa sets the backdrop for your ideal seaside vaction. The resort is located in Hikkaduwa, a charming beach town in the heart of the south. As Hikkaduwa has emerged as a popular tourist destination, this fishing village has transformed into a lively city, with way side restaurants, souvenir boutiques and a dynamic night life. Nestled amongst the coral reefs and a stones throw away from sun-kissed beaches and warm oceans, the Citrus Hikkaduwa is a comfortable getaway amidst a tropical island setting. Guests can enjoy a lazy escape by the sea and also experience the colourful boutiques and lively clubs that pepper the beach.

Excellent, friendly hotel on the beach”

position on beach; friendly, helpful staff ; excellent food

We have stayed at the Citrus on 5 occasions now and will be back. It's position on the beach in Hikkaduwa is good, the deluxe rooms are very comfortable and big enough for two, the food is great, especially the breakfasts, the staff are friendly, very helpful and well organised, the pool is good. The WiFi was fine. The only minor problems were: our inability to turn the temperature on the air conditioning unit up, so we either froze overnight with just a sheet or were too hot if we turned the air con off. We are not fans of buffets so our comments about the food relate to the a la carte menu. The bar staff seem unable to tell the difference between a Singapore Sling and a Pina Colada (I asked for one and got the other) The Citrus Lime and Sodas are not good - don't have All the sun loungers are 'booked' with towels by 7:30am Overall, a great place to stay and we would recommend it

Beach access

Had a great time at Citrus Hikkaduwa! stayed for 7 days, 6 of which were rainy! On the 5th day of thunderstorms, a lovely typhoon swept in and blew off our balcony roof, which allowed for darling pools of water forming in our room throughout our stay. The ocean was rough and ruthless all the while, limiting our diving/swimming activity to zero. The scenery provided for lovely holiday photos which we would gladly share, had our camera not been soaked in rain! Staff were friendly and helpful!

Nicest hotel in the area”

staff, food and the beach

We reached Citrus hotel on a little before the scheduled check-in time. Upon arrival we were greeted nicely at the reception. We booked through Agoda and there was a minor hiccup with our booking as the hotel was overbooked with travelers and had to undergo some untimely renovation. But they sorted out issue fine and offered us a free dinner buffet for our hassle. The staff was very courteous would like to specially mention the guy at the restaurant, always served us with a smile. Rooms may be were a bit small compared to many other places but they had nice view of the ocean. But the bed was comfortable. I personally don't mind room being small so I was fine with it. On the flip side may be they could think about making their bathrooms a bit bigger. Overall: nice hotel, one of the best in the area and definitely my place to stay in Hikkaduwa

We spent 4 nights at the Citrus Hotel in Hikkaduwa, and absolutely fell in love with the place. Right on the beach, we got a sea facing room for an absolute steal on Agoda. We were there to celebrate our anniversary, and the staff very kindly took up my request for a special candle-lit table right by the sea, and even threw in a cake with sparklers and all! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful vacation to leave all your worries behind :)

Citrus Hikkaduwa is an excellent to relax! Great location, great food, and an inviting pool just in front of the Indian Ocean. The staff is kind and always willing to help and support guests. It is sad they don't have Spa Ceylon anymore, as it is the best spa in Sri Lanka! Only one recommendation.. the chairs in the restaurant and really uncomfortable. It doesn't allow you to enjoy the good food the restaurant offers.

Hotel is just on the beach and close to Hikkaduwa village. It's not swimmable where hotel locates but the view is amazing. It was a beautiful experience to sleep with wave sounds all night long. Breakfast was OK, I also had dinner there and I liked it. Staff is careful, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, but need a renovation for balcony door and bathroom. If hotel management deal with the renovation, I'm sure this hotel will be the best in the area.

8 days at the Citrus”

1. Decent clean property 2. Very friendly and helpful staff 3. Feel good place to stay

Although I did like the property there were a few things that bear review 1. Location. Although it is well located in Hikkaduwa which has some nice beach property the Citrus is situated on a part of the beach that is rocky and it is impossible to bathe in the ocean in front of the hotel. To really enjoy the Indian Ocean and its waves one has to walk about 400 meters down the beach. However to sunbathe or swim in the pool the grounds of The Citrus are very acceptable. So if you want to play in the surf you might consider a hotel further south on Kikkaduwa Beach 2. Room. Although bright and airy it lacked a few creature comforts. Firstly there were two uncomfortable easy chairs in the room, and no table at sitting level on which to comfortably place a book or drink, etc. Secondly the balcony doors swung in such a way that it was almost a chore to use the balcony. Additionally the two chairs on the balcony were uncomfortable. And again there was no table which would have been very handy. While the room had a large storage closet it was set up so poorly that it was virtually impossible for two people to unpack there bags and enjoy the space. The closet needs shelves. I must say that the sound of the ocean roaring all night was a wonderful treat, and we slept every night with the balcony doors open and the air conditioning off. Also the view from the room ( we were on the top floor ) was dramatic. 3, The dining room was very good. Breakfast was a treat every day, with good fresh food and an extremely polite and friendly staff. A great way to start every morning.

Great location and pool/ dining area”

Great pool area and common hotel area for chilling, good location

Pros: - one of the biggest well maintained hotels along Hikkaduwa beach - fantastic service - very attentive and quick to response - pool area/ deck chairs faces the ocean which is great to chill - employs a lot of people therefore the hotel is always clean Could be improved: - Food was ok, generally food in Hikkaduwa was only ok - Rooms were big and opened to the ocean (i.e. sunny and breezy). However, the rooms seemed a big old and bathroom slightly dark. This was our biggest disappointment...esp since other aspects of the hotel were great and we paid amongst the highest price of all hikkaduwa hotels

Unforgettable memories ”

The hotel has got everything you expect to have a chill, comfortable beach holiday. Had an accident on the beach in front of the hotel, got injured, the staff called manager and they were really sympathetic and called ambulance to take me to government hospital so I can get treatment without worrying for the unexpected hospital bills. Since I was a solo traveler, General Manager kindly called Junior Manager who is a super warm hearted lady who speak perfect English. She gave me perfect care as if I was her own family. Even during my stay in hospital she often call and asked if anything was needed. Delivered some fresh clothes for change , visited me before she goes to work in the morning. It was unlucky accident but and I ended up canceling all my holiday agenda, instead of that, I got know warmth and hospitality of Srilankan people. The kindness will never forgotten. Thank you Manager, Thank you Rassika, all the staff at Citrus.
