This was one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed at in terms of guest service. The man at reception was extremely rude and the staff that worked at the restaurant were extremely pushy while being unfriendly. The quality of the food was disgusting and was extremely overpriced for what it was. The quality of the room was nice...

We stayed here for 3 nights and we're very disappointed. The actual room was lovely and the hotel is in a nice setting but everything else was below average. The food on the beach was not good for the price you pay. We also found the staff on the beach very pushy and not friendly when we wanted to lay...

Stayed here for two nights in July. We were very disappointed with the place. Even though it was off season in Hikkaduwa we still expected some services to be available at the hotel. The restaurant was closed, there was no sign of the monkey bar that they had advertised as the first and best in hikkaduwa. The wifi was so...

We've been to International Beach for over ten years now and keep coming back for the beautiful location and absolutely clean and spacious rooms! The food is good and so is the friendly service! Always enjoy chatting to Aunty and her family!

I was excited to see that this hotel was located right on the beach, with sunbeds we could use and the main surf break around 100m away. However, it came at a very high price for a room which only had a fan. Usually I would be fine with just a fan, however, these rooms are especially hot! Our rooms...

We stayed one night in this hotel and it was great! we walked near the beach all day and I think the best beach in Hikkaduwa is near this hotel. It's really clean, not crowded and relax. The staff was helpful, the breakfast and dinner was amazing. Excellent price for quality!

IBH's location is ideal for the complete Hikka experience; beach and eateries. But amenities and service wise its ideal for budget travellers who are more interested in the sun, sand and the sea. The rooms are clean but very basic. Amenities are very limited. we wanted an extra sheet but was told the request has to be made through the...

Pros: not too expensive, mosquito net for bed, ceiling fan, nice beach. Cons: about 20-30% too expensive for everything given the quality. Black paint on floor got on everything, staff wasn't exactly friendly, food was subpar. Advice for food: there are two great restaurants across the street: Reve D'Hikka (fancy/byob), and Clara's (hole in the wall, very good authentic food)....

Food and service absolutely amazing. We stayed 3 nights and would stay forever if it was possible. No bed covers though (1xflat sheet, even if sharing). Tuk tuks, scooters, shops, restaurants, diving, surfing, bars, tea gardens, all readily available. Beautiful people. Beautiful place.

Friendly and pleasing staff. Excellent location, right on the beach. Room was average but clean. Seafood in and around the area was good. Enjoyed the experience. Good to just take a book and relax on the beach.

The hotel is away from the beach just by few meters and it is situated in front of a beach where plenty of surfers ride the waves.
