We had a superb relaxing time over at Citrus Hikkaduwa...It’s a great place to stay.... Staff were friendly caring and pleasant, starting from the reception. Meals are very good and delicious... Rooms are very clean and maintained while outside is beautifully done. Well maintained hospital. I highly recommend the hotel for locals and foreigners. I would probably choose Citrus Hikkaduwa...

Location is nice. At the right side the beach for swimming, at the left side - spots for serf. Swimming pool is clean. In the evening karaoke, dance and etc. The food is different and tasty. You can change the money and rent a bike very close.

We had a night stay few moths back. We did not expect a five star treat from a four star hotel, However we were welcomed warmly by the friendly staff. This was the old Corel rock I guess. Food was fine and rooms have been modified Thank you Citrus 🍊
